...so.. my dad is friends with a family who are chronically on welfare programs.
thanks to the free gifts from the government they had a mortgage where they only had to pay $500 per month for a home that was usually 2 or 3 times more than that.
one day they get a notice that the house is being foreclosed on and they have to get out.
first question, of course , "did you make the payments?"
tell you the truth , i didn't even believe these people until several months later when i found out they were being represented by an attorney, in a class action.
ads on TV sprang up saying "if you were kicked out of your home, call"
then i found out the Feds were getting involved.
EVERYONE WATCH OUT!!! THE FEDS WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS!!!
i saw one brief news story, two days ago, that had more details.
"Mortgage papers were forged" to throw people out of their homes.
the news said , the class action lawsuit, with the feds involved, came out to a settlement where the average victim was going to receive less that $3000 dollars, they said one army vet was going to get $120,000
the news had an interview with one guy who said his check was for $300
these mortgage companies and banks flat out stole people's homes from them.
where's the news reports?
where's the ACLU?
where's the pilgrimages to Congress showing kids kicked out of their homes?
a few hundred dollars from a class-action scam is compensation for monthly payments?
