  1. Basically, everywhere where there are lots of people or items that need to be cooled can
    benefit from one of the portable air conditioning units available.

    Also be aware that any indoor pet, such as a cat or dog, may want to drink from your pond
    and then find himself a healthy treat in the process.
    Usually take into account the following prior to cleaning your floors:.

  2. Not that it matters, but FLEET was purchased by Washington Mutual (as per Wickipedia). I misspoke. Sorry.

  3. One thing for sure: you certainly have to admire these energetic Wells Fargo attorneys who were so enterprising as to “incorporate” all these subsidiaries! I would argue that unless Wells can demonstrate a bona-fide business reason that makes sense for all these separate corporations, then it is evidence on its face of a deceitful intent to obfuscate and confuse. (Predictably would not go very far if contained in pleadings, but would have a powerful effect on a Jury during trial!) So keep that strategy in mind. You could create a huge flow chart with boxes for all the names and show that monster to the jury and ask them if that is really necessary to conduct business as a “bank.” Answer in the jury’s mind: Nope. Get that up there and you have already won the case.

    Fleet Bank was bought by Bank of America. If fleet Mortgage is now with Wells, that implies that the Fleet monster was dismembered and parceled out. Which demonstrates that indeed all these entities are NOT needed to run a Bank.

  6. SECinfo.com lists 355 registrants with Wells Fargo in the name. Take a look at some of those trusts and you’ll see how intertwined they are with all those bad mortgage backed securities. Wells Fargo Delaware Trust Co., WFB Minnesota, WFB Indiana, etc.,etc. Jan, I don’t think they are all organized under the Fed charter as part of the National Association. Take this one for example: 1/12/06 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Not In Its Individual Capacity But Solely In Its….(WHAT????) * AEGIS ASSET BACKED SECURITIES TRUST Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates/Series 2004-4
    * Merrill Lynch Mortgage Investors Trust Series 2005-HE3
    * Ownit Mortgage Loan Trust/Series 2005-5

    And, they show Norwest Asset Securities Corp. As Agents. You were right, it seems, Bob G.

    Deb Wynn, sorry. Wish I could help. I wish I could help SOMEONE bury these fuckers!

  7. Bob G., I thought it was the other way around with Wells and Norwest. I also remember Norwest bought Fleet Mortgage, another bunch of criminals masquerading as bankers. I’f I’m not mistaken, the trust docs for my trust docs reference them as a Delaware Corporation. Maybe this is just for the securitization trust? I think Wells represents themselves as a Minnesota corp, that’s where that last lawsuit was won against them (by investors).

  8. What is this about? Hearing some rumors about WF and SEC – but do not know details.

  9. trespass unwanted

    I am meek. But stand prepared to fight.

  10. Deb Wynn,

    Question: When you lost, did it require your signature of ‘acceptance’?

    Just curious, because the saying, it ain’t over until the fat lady sings,
    and if you move the letters around for ‘sings’ you get ‘signs’.

    Did you sign as part of the defeat you are posting about?

    Signatures create contracts.

    Something most of us still don’t understand.

    A signature on a judgment is as much a contract as buying a car, or signing before going to jail. All contracts.

    It’s hard for you to answer, I understand.
    I’m only commenting to ‘help’ and not ‘hurt’ the cause.
    Collectively we are experiencing this pain, and collectively we WILL have to know what we are doing and do something different.

    Light and Love

  11. To all posters and Neil:

    In the case where the Wells Fargo unit you are looking at states “N.A.” after its name, then it is a “National Association” and is incorporated as a Federal banking entity, not with a State Charter.

    Wells Fargo has become a hydra-headed monster, with who knows how many different “entities.” The ones with “N.A.” are all a creature of the Comptroller of the Currency.

  12. Wells Fargo Bank of Minnesota, N.A.

    Norwest Bank in Minn. acquired Wells Fargo Bank Calif. in 1998. Norwest gave up the Norwest name and retained the Wells Fargo name for marketing purposes.

  13. Have seen WF listed as a corportation in Missouri on SEC filings if that helps.

  14. Deb Wynn,

    I feel your pain and I am angry that they stole your home.

    I am hopeful that one of us will win big for all of us. I am praying that you and everyone effected will be made whole and that the perpetrators will be brought to their knees.

    In the meantime, it is a matter of public record that you fought back. You stood up and challenged them. You have nothing to be ashamed of and everything to be proud of. Your grandchildren will be proud to know that their grandmother was the “fight back” type and not the “do nothing” type.

  15. Neil, it would be helpful if you had stated where Wells Fargo actually is incorporated.

    Wells Fargo started out life as a San Francisco entity. Did their bright attorneys move it or re-incorporate it as a Delaware Corporation? If so, when was that?

  16. AND INDYMAC ONE WEST AND DEUTSCHE AND HASBC AND ALL THOSE OTHERS WHO WERRE UNJUSTLY ENRICHED

  17. NO THAT TRIPLE DAMAGES 9 YRS…YES FOLKS I LOST THE HOME MY DREAM HOME I WAS GONNA BRING MY GRAND KIDS TO YES IM AS DRUNK AS A SKUNK IM SELLING STUFF, LIQUIDATING SHALL WE SAY…I FOUGHT A GOOD BATTLE AND LOST BUT YOU SOMETIMES LOOSE THE BATTLE TO WIN THE WAR…MY HEART IS BREAKING NOT FPR THE HOUSE BUT FOR THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO IN GOOD FAITH GOT ROTALLY SCREWED WAKE UP AMERICA YOU WILOL BE SLAVES OTHERWISE

  18. SLOWLY FOR 3 YRS

  20. Wells Fargo more than likely caloborated with J.P. Morgan . Look and see if your Trust is located below.

    If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from today. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Samuel H. Rudman or David A. Rosenfeld of Coughlin Stoia at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058, or via e-mail at djr@csgrr.com. If you are a member of this class, you can view a copy of the complaint or join this class action online at http://www.csgrr.com/cases/jpmorgan/. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.

    The complaint charges JP Morgan Acceptance, certain of its officers and directors and the issuers and underwriters of the Certificates with violations of the Securities Act of 1933. JP Morgan Acceptance was formed in 1988 for the purpose of acquiring, owning and selling interests in those assets. JP Morgan Acceptance is a subsidiary of J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. (“JP Morgan”) and is engaged in mortgage lending and other real estate finance-related businesses, including mortgage banking, mortgage warehouse lending, and insurance underwriting.

    The complaint alleges that on July 29, 2005 and February 8, 2006, JP Morgan Acceptance and the Defendant Issuers caused Registration Statements to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the issuance of billions of dollars of Certificates. The Certificates were issued pursuant to Prospectus Supplements, each of which was incorporated into the Registration Statements. The Certificates included several classes or tranches, which had various priorities of payment, exposure to default, interest payment provisions and/or levels of seniority. The Certificates were supported by large pools of mortgage loans. The Registration Statements represented that the mortgage pools would primarily consist of loan groups generally secured by first liens on residential properties, including conventional, adjustable rate and negative amortization mortgage loans.

    The complaint alleges that the Registration Statements omitted and/or misrepresented the fact that the sellers of the underlying mortgages to JP Morgan Acceptance were issuing many of the mortgage loans to borrowers who: (i) did not meet the prudent or maximum debt-to-income ratio purportedly required by the lender; (ii) did not provide adequate documentation to support the income and assets required for the lenders to approve and fund the mortgage loans pursuant to the lenders’ own guidelines; (iii) were steered to stated income/asset and low documentation mortgage loans by lenders, lenders’ correspondents or lenders’ agents, such as mortgage brokers, because the borrowers could not qualify for mortgage loans that required full documentation; and (iv) did not have the income required by the lenders’ own guidelines to afford the required mortgage payments which resulted in a mismatch between the amount loaned to the borrower and the capacity of the borrower.

    According to the complaint, by the summer of 2007, the amount of uncollectible mortgage loans securing the Certificates began to be revealed to the public. To avoid scrutiny for their own involvement in the sale of the Certificates, the Rating Agencies began to put negative watch labels on many Certificate classes, ultimately downgrading many. The delinquency and foreclosure rates of the mortgage loans securing the Certificates has grown both faster and in greater quantity than what would be expected for mortgage loans of the types described in the Prospectus Supplements. As an additional result, the Certificates are no longer marketable at prices anywhere near the price paid by plaintiffs and the Class and the holders of the Certificates are exposed to much more risk with respect to both the timing and absolute cash flow to be received than the Registration Statements/Prospectus Supplements represented.

    Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Certificates pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statements (the “Class”). The plaintiff is represented by Coughlin Stoia, which has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud.

    Coughlin Stoia, a 190-lawyer firm with offices in San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Atlanta, is active in major litigations pending in federal and state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded investors, consumers, and companies, as well as victims of human rights violations.

  21. I started looking in Orange County, Florida and have not found anything yet.

  22. Start off by searching within your own state. That might help. I think all the WF suits I’ve seen have them as a Delaware Corporation. But I’ll search as well here in NJ.

  23. Where can those cases be found? If I know where to look, I’ll start looking.
