American consumers are at the mercy of State Attorneys General to vigorously investigate and prosecute economic fraud –of all types.
Even prior to AG Tom Miller’s
“deal” with mortgage lenders who deliberately engage in foreclosure fraud
, scores of people needed to be jailed so that mortgage and foreclosure fraud can be deterred
. On the other hand, understandably, limited facts and evidence can leave authorities with little choice except to “deal” (like plea bargain)
Instead of hope and demand that out-of-control judicial and political systems
somehow right itself, Americans need to DO our part –or at least weigh what IS our part. Pro-action accomplishes better results than (notwithstanding any justification)
posting commiserating, blaming, or angry comments and statements on the Internet regarding our nation's mortgage crisis. Ethical lawmakers, activists, news media –and particularly investigative reporters who put their safety on the line, are not solely responsible for exposing fraud and corruption.
Contained in the petition, “Request for Congressional Foreclosure Panel to Examine Foreclosure Lawyers” @ http://chn.ge/eU2zAm
are details and illustrations about foreclosure frauds being carried out by some lawyers who file foreclosure proceedings in civil as well as bankruptcy courts. Individual consumers can help law enforcement
to curtail and / or prosecute frauds associated with foreclosures by providing facts and information similar to descriptions in that petition. (It is certainly the BETTER ROUTE than people copying / buying various publications via the Internet, and thinking that they can take on court systems –particularly in light of the few grounds for opposing foreclosures successfully, instead of delaying them.)
Hopefully people continue signing and sharing the petition
. But hopefully they will also heap upon offices of Attorneys General, information / evidence about foreclosure-judicial wrongdoing
