Foreclosure Mills Continue Down the Wide Path of Destruction

We have already talked about the foreclosure mills the Law Offices of David J. Stern PA and Ben-Ezra & Katz PA and NDEx West (owned by Dolan Media) with its doppelgänger foreclosure mill law firm, Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engle. Now we turn our attention to Shapiro & Burson apparently out of Maryland. As stated on livinglies.wordpress.com (and originally from 4closurefraud.org), The Baltimore Sun’s Jamie Smith Hopkins reports that 1,000 or more Maryland deeds are likely forgeries that were created by a foreclosure mill (the law firm of Shapiro & Burson). It turns out that last year two other law firms in Maryland admitted they had forged signatures on foreclosure documents in a similar manner (Bierman Geesing & Ward along with Covahey Boozer Devan and Dore). I have already shown that NDEx West (owned by Dolan Media) along with Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engle does the same thing. This is very easy to show for just about any foreclosure mill. Here is how. Just go down to the recorders office and pull up 20 documents in each of the last 3 or 4 years naming your favorite foreclosure mill (NDEx West or whoever). The chances of you not finding one forgery are probably close to 0%. The chances of you finding multiple forgeries is very high (99%+).

NEW GRANDMA IN CALIFORNIA DOES SLEUTHING AND DISCOVERS MAJOR ROBO NOTARY VIOLATIONS WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR HOMEOWNER-BORROWERS, INVESTORS AND MAJOR BANKING & INVESTMENT FIRMS. IS THERE IRS TAX EVASION ON THE PART OF BANKS & INVESTMENT FIRMS?

Anita Carr is used to discovering fraudulent activities, even when she is not employed. In 2001 she discovered accounting irregularities at a Fortune 500 where she was a Director in Information Technology. This led to investor lawsuits against that company for accounting fraud and insider trading. At a prior employer she contacted the FBI and worked with them to ensure they investigated Medicare Fraud. The CFO of that company went to prison.
Now, in fighting to determine title on her home, she has discovered something even more slimy and with much broader implications. In an attempt to validate a ‘squiggle’ type mark on a recorded document with the Alameda County Recorder’s office, Ms. Carr felt it imperative that she obtain a copy of the page from the notarial journal from the California notary who performed the notarization of the ‘Corporation Deed of Assignment’ related to her property.
Ms. Carr, under California laws, is entitled to purchase a copy of the page in the notarial journal related to her property and so she wrote to the Orange County Recorder’s office and sent a check to cover the copy fees. Orange County is where the notary was registered. Within weeks she received a certified letter back from the Orange County recorder stating that they should have the notarial journal, but they did not have it. See, once a notary is no longer a notary in California, it is the law that they must turn in their notarial journal to the county recorder.
