 This issue is not going away, it will haunt us for decades to come. We still don’t know what’s in these toxic derivatives that our government is obligated to maintain because we spent trillions backing up the people that concocted them. We are by no means out of the housing mess. We still have high unemployment, but I can assure you that if we don’t get serious financial deregulation through Congress, and that means preventing the banks that we back up, that handle the money of ordinary depositors, of getting into these derivatives. That is in Blanche Lincoln’s [bill] that got through the Agricultural Committee. If we don’t separate the investors using their own money and the banks, we’re going to have a bigger crisis. At the very least we should repeal those horrible pieces of legislation Clinton signed off on, to the bipartisan cheers of the Congress and lobbyists they served, and reverse the Financial Services Modernization Act and the Commodity Futures Modernization Act.

I am presently in litigation with Fremont Reorganizing, Goldman Sachs dba Litton Loan Servicing, et al., (2 different cases) for about 2 years now. The main issue with the complaint is a fraudulent loan originated by Fremont in June 2006. This in turn produced an array of other
issues: unsigned deed of trust, over billing issues, lost payments, excessive balloon payment, back dated assignments, illegal non-judicial foreclosure documentation, missing documentation, illegally reporting to my credit, falsifying declarations, 6 week TRO’s, court procedures not followed, judges wait until the courtroom is cleared to rule against a TRO (both times); retired (78 year old) judge ruled against a seated judges TRO where the retired judge took 30 minutes to read a 300 page brief. The whole time they have been ignoring my request and failing to give me the required documentation so that I can rescind the loan. Goldman Sachs dba Litton Loan Servicing has been aggressively trying to foreclose on my property. I believe to cash out for insurance reasons. (It’s over a million dollar loan) I have invested over $400,000 into this property for the past 5 years and if I had known about this mortgage meltdown game played by Wall Street I would have never proceeded with this Real Estate transaction. The Media and the Government has not once addressed or helped the borrower, namely me, who also has been damaged by these defaulted CDO’s.

A Time line of what’s going on with Goldman Sachs to show how they are scheming to pursue foreclosures for the insurance by acquiring distressed, shelled fraudulent companies which will eventually or haven’t already gone BK…

?  Oct 26, 2005 Litton Loan Servicing Class Action - mishandling loans, servicing over 400,000 borrowers - case settled Feb 17, 2009 for $537 (limited due to class status)
?  Feb 27, 2007 FDIC Cease and Desist - Fremont Reorganizing for illegal loan practices, et al., (largest predatory lenders who heavily solicited brokers for their schemes)
?  Oct 16, 2007 Massachusetts Lawsuit vs Fremont and Goldman Sachs - Predatory Lending Practices - settled May 11, 2009 for $60 mil
?  Dec 11, 2007 - Goldman Sachs Acquires Litton Loan Servicing
?  June 2, 2008 Litton (Goldman Sachs) Acquires Fremont Reorganizing Servicing Rights
?  June 19, 2008 Fremont Reorganizing files BK
?  Apr 16, 2010 - SEC vs Goldman Sachs - Securities Fraud

Here is the link to my blog if you want to download court documents pertaining to my case.

Note: My wife is pursuing individuals who are interested in joining her in a class action lawsuit with regards to violation of her community property rights in a wrongful foreclosure. If you are in a community property state and a spouse is not on title you may have grounds for legal action.
