    Of course, make the already victimized homeowner now liable for the criminal substitute attorney fees. How TRULY pathetic and evil. Foreclosures are at an all time high. State regulators do NOTHING to help homeowners by refusing to go after the banksters who CONTINUE to STEAL AND PILFER by perpetuating FRAUD on the courts and the people... The banks--one example: Ditech Financial...formerly Green Tree Financial (name change to cover up illegal practices and $60 million fine by CFPB)...hand in hand with Bank of America, or as they like to refer to themselves..FKA cahoots with their slimy, underhanded Substitute Trustee attorneys (ie Samuel I White PC )..are submitting FORGERIES of owners signatures on mortgage notes, along with fake stamped TA-DA endorsements and are using these fabricated documents as evidence in courts across the country to steal homes in FRAUDULENT foreclosures. The forgeries are done through trace/digital means and the felonies and fraud upon the courts are happening in MASSIVE numbers as the judges, and state regulators turn a blind eye to the banksters who CONTINUE to steal and pilfer. Mail Fraud, forgery, racketeering, etc.....instead Bail outs and settlements are given to hide their crimes, loans that have been paid off over and over to the banks through the biggest ponzi scheme the world has seen., lies about modifications...AND not one gold collared bankster goes to prison...and instead...they CONTINUE to commit their crimes. The "judicial " system in many of the states care not to do what it is supposed to do and merely denies justice and reaffirms every case brought before it. Other states, such as Florida are not taking it any longer and are beginning to stop the crimes. ( Judge Butchko, a judge who ISN"T bought and paid for) IT‘s truly a sad, demonic thing that is being perpetuated on homeowners and the sicko banksters who are running the beast system from behind their ugly curtain are .... pathetic. Massive fraud continues to take place and continues to be covered up). Anyone who believes the Wall Street bailout ended in 2008 is SADLY mistaken.
