Mortgage companies steal homes with help of the government
...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?
There is plenty of blame to go around. Between the government, the banks, and the people who bought houses that they couldn't even dream of affording. Most who got foreclosed on should of been foreclosed on sooner.
I disagree....most who got foreclosed on should not have been given the loan in the first place. Then there would be nothing to foreclose on.
Most who got foreclosed on should of been foreclosed on sooner.
I agree. But adults also need to be accountable for what they do, sign, and agree to. As I said plenty of blame to go around.

Gees don't care to go through it all again for anyone who didn't care to look it up. Thank you, thank you very much

"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
I don't buy it. The banks control the "Fed", not the other way around. Besides, they walked away the winners and we walk away the losers. Telling me they didn't know it would unfold that way?
