EDITORIAL COMMENT: This has been my point all along. It is inevitable. If the pretenders can do what they are doing — so can anyone. If you don’t need a valid mortgage or deed, if you are not a creditor and it doesn’t matter then anyone can claim anything for nothing. Why Not? 2 wrongs don’t make it right but I’m sure glad this guy highlighted my point this way. In order to stop him they are going to be required to invoke, state and enforce the law — something the pretenders cannot withstand because it means that millions of foreclosures and tens of millions of real estate transactions were faked.

Tucson mayoral candidate on odd spree of house claiming

He seizes, but doesn’t own, 21 foreclosures

A Tucson mayoral candidate from a fringe political party has seized dozens of foreclosed homes in metro Phoenix, changing the locks, kicking out real-estate agents and posting “Do Not Trespass” signs.

Marshall Home, who claims many foreclosures are illegal, has filed documents in the past two weeks with the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office showing he has supposedly taken ownership of at least 21 homes belonging to government-owned mortgage giant Fannie Mae. But none of the documents shows any money has changed hands, and Fannie Mae says it has not sold the houses.

Real-estate agents and experts say Home’s documents, a type of real-estate form called a special-warranty deed, aren’t valid.

“Fannie Mae has not authorized the transfer of the properties in question to the organization,” spokesman Andrew Wilson said. “We will pursue appropriate legal action and involve law enforcement as necessary.”

But for now, Home’s Independent Rights Political Party Trust is claiming to own the houses. Several of the homes have people living in them.

“Lenders are gangsters, and they can’t prove they own these homes. So they have no right to foreclose,” said the 80-year-old self-professed billionaire from his real-estate and political office in Tucson on Tuesday. “I plan to continue to take homes from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I would buy them, but those groups can’t produce the notes showing they are the rightful owners to sell or foreclose on them.”

He said he plans to continue to seize houses from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac even if he’s not elected. The chances are slim he will become Tucson’s next mayor.

He has filed several lawsuits against what he considers unlawful foreclosures in Arizona.

Registered as a Democrat, Home is a controversial mayoral candidate. His opponents are trying to have him expelled from the race because he has a criminal record, and some say he is not fit to serve as mayor.

Tom Ruff, real-estate analyst with data firm Information Market, examined the 21 special-warranty deeds Home’s group filed in Maricopa County.

“He knows how to file a real-estate document that looks legitimate,” Ruff said, “even if it may not be.”

House seized

Last week, Phoenix HomeSmart real-estate agents Brett Barry and Roland Cleveland got a call from their brokerage telling them Independent Rights Political Party Trust had sent a letter saying it “acquired all rights” to the house at 6032 E. Skinner Drive in Cave Creek. The agents were hired by Fannie Mae to maintain and market the property and had heard nothing about a sale of the home.

The notice told the real-estate agents they had 72 hours to remove their signs and lockboxes, so they rushed to the house wondering what was happening and why hadn’t they been informed. But they were too late. Home’s group had taken their lockboxes, installed new locks and posted signs saying the house was under video surveillance and any trespassers would be “dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.”

A special-warranty deed, stamped by the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office, also was posted on the window of the home. The deed said the Federal National Mortgage Association, Fannie Mae, had conveyed the property to the Independent Rights Party. It was signed by Home and his notary, but there were no signatures from Fannie Mae on it.

Cleveland immediately sensed something was wrong.

“We called the people who hired us and work with Fannie Mae, and they didn’t know anything about a sale,” he said. “It appeared right away the document was fraudulent.”

On orders from Fannie Mae, Cleveland broke the new locks, tore down the trespass warning and other fliers and put new locks on the home. He now watches the house closely every day.

“It’s crazy,” he said. “How does someone just declare they own a home without paying for it or obtaining a clear title?”

A warranty deed is a document filed for almost all home sales conveying a property from the seller to the buyer. But a special-warranty deed is only used in unusual circumstances. In a typical transaction, a title agent makes sure the property has no liens or ownership issues and all the paperwork is correct before both the buyer and seller sign the documents, which are then filed with the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office.

All types of documents can be filed with the Recorder’s Office as long as they are notarized. Not all documents are scrutinized before the county agency accepts them because that’s not its job. But Home said Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell did reject some of his filings, though he would not say why.

More seizures

Home said his group also has claimed control over foreclosure houses in Tucson and other parts of the country, including Florida and Las Vegas.

Besides his political party, Home runs a company called Stop Foreclosure Underwriters. Home said he receives requests from homeowners for help taking back their homes and files the paperwork in response. He and his employees or members of his party post the signs and handle the paperwork to take control of a government-owned home.

Home said he took control of a 145-unit condominium project for a man in Florida.

“We’ve seized hundreds of homes from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” Home said. “Those groups have no legal right to them.”

Home said he likes to have someone living in a home his group seizes because that makes it more difficult for the federal agencies to reclaim the houses and evict tenants.

The Cave Creek house Cleveland and Barry are in charge of is empty, but the agents are checking it regularly for unwanted tenants.

The houses that Independent Rights is claiming ownership to in metro Phoenix span from Scottsdale to Peoria.

Besides suing Home, Fannie Mae must contact local law enforcement and prosecutors to stop him from taking over its foreclosure homes.

Angst at lenders

Home is tapping into a growing sentiment among homeowners angry with lenders who won’t work with them on loan modifications. Instead, the homeowners are often dismayed to see the lender foreclose, then resell the house for a bargain price, sometimes a price the original owner could have paid. Some of Home’s critics call him an anarchist. He has said the government doesn’t have the right to require licenses of any kind, whether business, marriage or driving. Home himself said he drives but doesn’t have a license.

Home said he is running for mayor in part to try to stop fraudulent foreclosures, but he could be kicked out of the Tucson election this week because he hasn’t lived in the city for the requisite three years and has a criminal record for assaulting a federal court officer.

He said that won’t stop him from taking back foreclosure homes from Fannie Mae and fellow mortgage backer Freddie Mac.

“I haven’t been contacted by either entity nor has either one done anything to stop me,” Home said. “I look forward to a call from one of them so I can explain why I am legally in the right to take over taxpayer-owned homes.”

  1. apparently he trade marked the fannie mae name.

    seems your average angry zillionaire, just a little something he does for fun.

  2. It seems alot of talk here is just ranting on and on….regardless if, and that is a big ‘IF’…Mr. Homes is right or wrong…He is proving ‘STANDING ‘…..this is something Fannie not Freddie cannot prove in most foreclosures. So that is the issue you should be considering…what proof would give F & F the right to foreclose or even take claim to these houses. The laws have been broken/ignored by the foreign multinational fraudster banksters. And the courts have followed this same pattern. This is criminal intent done to the homeowners. These homes have already been foreclosed on, So Mr. Homes has done no harm to the people…he is making F & F prove they have standing….and they don’t. And I certainly would follow the articles on this site of Neil Garfield before I would ever follow info by some who reply with ranting comments.

    WATCH THE WHOLE CLIP…THE WALL IS CRACKING!!!

  4. I have already been to court twice defending foreclosure from an entity that I know has no legal right to my property. Thankfully the Judge I went before was willing to listen to me although I’m not court room savvy and know next to nothing about how to defend a foreclosure. The only thing I knew is these folks were not my note holder. And thats all I said.The Judge did seem a little perturbed at me for showing up to court alone and did say sternly. “you need a lawyer!” The bank has pretty much ignored every request and answers every inquiry with the same ole copy of their shoddy corporate assignment. Every signature on their assignment is an employee of the bank its made out to. I found them all on facebook. Skipping ahead a few years and much back and forth- the bank has offered me a permenant modification. I know that sounds great and thought I would accept it. But now I’m thinking, Why? They dont have my mortgage and whats to say 30 years down the road after paying I wont lose it anyway if just anybody can come take your property with nothing to prove a claim! I’m going to go to court and take my chances and ask “If this entity can come in and take my home with the wrong account information, the wrong payment information, the wrong property address, no note, no deed, no mortgage, then anybody can come in and take anybody home! And you better all be worried!”

    here’s a little reminder about what NOT to do. FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM UPON WHICH RELIEF CAN BE GRANTED.

    Yes, A-Man. I’d say “ethics are optional” almost everywhere you go. It’s the individual who finds the strength to stay true to his moral compass. I feel bad for my kids because they are now in a world where “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” went the way of Superman himself.

    Harry, you were right. This thread is the big “shakeout”.

    And God Bless Steve Reeves. May he rest in peace.
    Goodnight.

  6. The definition of insanity per one Albert Einstein is : doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    That is not the definition of insanity.

    Actual definition is” not being able to tell the difference between differences, similarities and identities.

    The rules become crazy, insane.

    It’s 2am, nobody around, you come to a stop sign, nobody around. You run the stop sign. Nothing happens, nobody in danger, nobody around.

    It’s 2am, nobody around, you come to a stop sign. You stop. Look both ways, all is good, you proceed forward.

    What are the differences, similarities and identities of the above two sentences?

    What if a cop was there? Would he give you a ticket for running a stop sign? Would he be able to tell the difference between 2 am and nobody around vs 3 pm in the afternoon and kids walking around walking home from school?

    How would a Judge view that? How would a Lawyer view that? The rules?

    Who’s insane, crazy?

  7. tnharry,

    “Neil posted a story about a clearly crazy individual and I pointed out the level of crazy to which this guy subscribes.”

    There you go, where are your rules? Rules, my ass, it’s what ever you can get away with. I point out this rule, you point out that rule, back and forth. No judge or lawyer has all the database on all the rules, BECAUSE there are so many of them, and to top it off, there are so many of them on JUDGES OR COURT decisions, more rules and precedent. Oh my god. The little is fucked – walk away and hope nothing happens. What about Morals or Ethics, does this enter into any of your rules, which are compounded and compounded every fuck’in year. Look at the tax code – how many pages is it now?

    So the Marshall Home is getting properties. Oh my god, he is not following the rules.

    Say any of you speed in excess of the speed limit every day? Hey, you got away with it because some cop was not there at the moment with a speed gun tracking your every movement.

    It’s 2am, nobody around, you come to a stop sign, nobody around. You run the stop sign. Nothing happens, nobody in danger, nobody around.

    It’s 2am, nobody around, you come to a stop sign. You stop. Look both ways, all is good, you proceed forward.

  8. usedkarguy you are the exception .

    Be Strong and Courageous

  9. tnharry said
    You can’t seriously compare this wacko with the banks. I know i’ve been accused of being a bank apologist in the past, but his actions don’t compare to the banks in the least. And Neil almost seems to be condoning and promoting the behavior. He’s facing at least civil if not criminal charges now.

    The Banksters are worse than this guy not by much. Because they are licensed and are supposed to be apart of the community. They are wolfs in sheep clothing.
    Predatory Lending is a very very very serious Crime. It is putting a person into slavery,

    It is sort of like who has more morals a usedkar salesperson or a Lawyer?

    A crooked lawyer is like a bankster. He/she is licensed and has a Guild or Union behind them.

    A usedkar Salseperson you dont have to pass the Bar to become one.

    The one thing I do agree with Tnharry is that we should become more mainstream. which we are.

    Be Strong and Courageous.

  10. STRATEGIC CORRECTION:

    Mr. Home’s only strategic mistake, is he needs to make his notarized adverse-possession special warranty deeds from his Trust (Grantor) to his Trust (Grantee) – Not from FNMA, who doesn’t own them anyway.

    This way he starts his 10- year adverse possession* clock, without the identity problems. No one can claim to charge him with anything then. He is then a squatter with landlord-tenant rights after 30 days. Otherwise the thieving hypocritical powers-that-be may try to make him look stupid, and blame the whole movement.

    With the right deed special warranty or quit claim, this could be a great way to fix the homelessness problem, and keep the homes from being torn up.

    *The elements for establishing a claim for adverse possession are that the possession of the subject land must be: (1) actual and visible, (2) for ten years, (3) commenced and continued under a claim of right inconsistent with and hostile to the claim of another, and (4) to the exclusion of all others, including the titled property owner.

  12. This is the crony that caused the grief of hundreds of millions…look how much money he made…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_R._Immelt

  13. You two should get a room.

    Bottom line is, Neil has brought the news of fraud and intentions to fraud from the very top of Wall Street and major lenders. Don’t think for a second that 20 million Americans would have been caught in the same SCAM without the help of federal government giving lenders the opportunity to defraud ALL with programs schemed up to fraud borrowers. Complete fraud from the top to the bottom and after getting the behind the curtain fees, default insurance policies, crazy high servicing fees while keeping borrowers in default longer… you broke back brothers feel they should get free houses from the American homeowners.

    Get Real. They need their asse$ beat and sent to jail and you guys can be their little girlfriends. My grandfather has lost his entire pension because Wall Street hoodwinked the investors as well as the borrowers.

  14. I love you, man!

  15. I just had a little chat with Marshall – did you read the article ?? Realtor says “we talked to the people we work with that work with Fannie Mae” ..right. Fannie Mae is no more the owner than I am the man on the moon. Try getting their contact, in deposition or discovery they’ll oppose it, bitterly. Guess why ?? Because it does not exist. They are lying, blatantly. The realtor contact is a law firm, they have hijacked the Fannie name, same way they did HSBC and everybody else.
    I say rock on.
    Make it a Great Day.

  16. @usedkar – for what it’s worth, I’m practicing law and I once sold used cars. i’ve been told i took a step backwards when i left the dealership and took the bar exam

  17. Louie, I want you to go to the homeowners page, wait the five FARGING minutes it takes to download, and look at the first name on that list. Roger P. Rinaldi. otherwise known worldwide as “usedkarguy”.

    When I got here in 2008, I was a victim. Poor me. I got SCREWED! So I looked, I read, and I learned. I wanted to know. I needed to know. I WAS PEEVED!

    What I learned is that a lot of people used their houses for ATMs. I know that a lot of people DELIBERATELY SPENT WITH RECKLESS ABANDON ON A CHECKBOOK SUPPLIED BY A BANK. Now they think they can beat the system for a free house because of the situation.
    I also know people who, through no fault of their own, were literally “hoodwinked” by the lender, pretender lender, whatever you want to call them. They showed up to close a mortgage and left with two mortgages. They were told this, and signed that. Everything you were told that was “too good to be true”, was too good to be true. And here we are.
    “Failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted”.
    Everybody is crying about it, but nobody can state a claim upon which relief can be granted.
    Until now. And when people stop crying and start learning, they will come up with a claim upon which relief can be granted.
    Now the attorney, he doesn’t believe anybody he talks to. Kinda like me, a used car (and new, of course) salesman. “The buyer is only lying when his lips are moving”. So now you’re in this house, with a mortgage you can’t pay, and you’re just like 20,000,000 other mudderfuggers. Welcome to the club, icehole!
    Now that attorney, who spent 50 or maybe 100 or maybe $200,000 on his education, he spends his whole day listening to LIARS and CRYBABIES and WHINERS. Everybody has a story, BUT WHO HAS A CLAIM THEY CAN STATE UPON WHICH RELIEF CAN BE GRANTED?

    But guys like Louie Hammer are just ninnyhammers. Pay them no mind.

    But I am COMPLIMENTED by being mentioned in the same sentence as those below.

    And listen to Harry. He’s not charging you $300 an hour to offer a tip. I wish I could get more out of him for free!

    One more thing, get your heads out of your asses. Find a claim upon which relief can be granted. Get it?

  18. Forget Mayor…. HOME FOR PRESIDENT!!!

    No matter how great a bank’s reputation was before, the banks that are involved in this mess are common criminals in my opinion, it may be a hard pill to swallow but it is a pill nonetheless, “De Nile” is a river in Africa.
    You have to be in denial to believe the “originators” of these loans did not know the source from which funding came for the loans.
    You have to be in denial to believe that the banks didn’t manipulate rating agencies to have subprime loans graded as AAA to lure investors
    You have to be in denial to believe the depositors didn’t know they were making money off of credit default swaps after they lured investors with their “AAA” products.
    You have to be in denial to believe that every transfer in the securitzation chain was a true sale with delivery of all Notes, Mortgages, Assignments and closing docs for each and every loan.
    You have to be in denial to believe the “lenders” didn’t know that documents were being robosigned in order to foreclosure.
    You have to be in denial to believe that servicers are legitimate and not lying to homeowners, lenders, investors, the govt and everybody else
    You have to be in denial to believe that lenders and servicers had no idea foreclosure mills were forging documents
    THE LIST GOES ON and ON…..

    If you’re sure you’re not in denial, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell ya

    If Home is a criminal, then the banks are criminals.
    Home filed approx 20 “questionable” documents. How many has not only the banks filed, but also presented to homeowners, investors and the govt?
    How much are Home’s “questionable” assets worth? How much are the bank’s “questionable” assets worth?
    How long has Home been on this “crime” spree? How long has the banks been at it?
    ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

    Oh and most real estate “agents” don’t have a clue, they move to the beat of anybody’s drum!!! I don’t believe most of them ever visit the courthouse to know who their “principal” should be….

  19. Come on, he is simply saying that they should enforce the law on HIM as WELL AS THE PRETENDERS—it’s the same law(s) for everyone.

  20. Just posting it is giving him publicity and implicitly condoning it…

    But 4 quotes from the editorial comment as to why I disagree with you Carie:
    1)”This has been my point all along. It is inevitable.”
    2)” If the pretenders can do what they are doing — so can anyone.”
    3) “If you don’t need a valid mortgage or deed, if you are not a creditor and it doesn’t matter then anyone can claim anything for nothing.”
    4)”I’m sure glad this guy highlighted my point this way”

  21. Did you guys even READ the editorial comment??? Neil is NOT condoning this guy!!! Sheesh!!

  22. @Louie – you got us, we’re all the same guy. I’m not sure exactly when the going has gotten “rough” today. Neil posted a story about a clearly crazy individual and I pointed out the level of crazy to which this guy subscribes. Not sure why you think I have an ax to grind with Neil. Unless Neil actually is the crazy guy running for mayor using the name Marshall Home, I’m not sure what this all has to do with Neil anyway. I did criticize Neil for giving him publicity and for lowering the credibility of his site in so doing.

  23. I believe that “WHATEVER IT TAKES” at this point is the way to go to get these issues front and center…

  24. Usedkarguy, The A Man, tnharry, and M.S. your all probably the same guy or work out of the same office. It is rather interesting that you all come to each others defense when the going gets rough. It is obvious to me that your grinding an ax you have with Neil. I for one think that most of you are either one in the same or cohorts in your spite filled agenda.

  25. no whining here—just in search of truth and justice.

  26. tnharry and dr usedkarboy… you guys crack me up. Neil was making the point that at some point someone can come back in and lay claim to these deeds, just like the pretenders who’ve frauded the country for several years now. Hope you both can cuddle up somewhere soon. I’m sure no one meant to ruffle your lil feathers. And usedkarboy maybe you should let tnharry in on broke back mountain. hahhaaa now thats funny right there

  27. Neil, this day will be Exhibit A for those seeking to pick apart your theories and strategies…..

  28. I retract everything I’ve said about this posting being detrimental to the site. It’s been a great tool to separate the fringe from the realists. Glorify the sovereign citizen movement if you want, but don’t come crying to the same courts you villify when you yourself need redress.

  29. Somebody start a new thread. Johnny Jagball, crying carie, PLEASE. Take a Xanax, go to sleep, and wake up again. tnharry is the REAL DEAL. You should realize that. and quit whining.

  30. tn: YOU”RE WRONG.

  31. Johnny, I have no idea what you’re referring to about broke back mountain. I can say that there’s no way you really want this guy trumpeting your cause. Just giving it a presence on this website was a bad idea and an erosion of credibility.

  32. right on, johnny g.

  33. @ Mike Hansen

    How about David and Goliath? I like how that turned out…

    “As Goliath moved in for the kill, David reached into his bag and slung one of his stones at Goliath’s head. Finding a hole in the armor, the stone sank into the giant’s forehead and he fell face down on the ground. David then took Goliath’s sword, killed him and then cut off his head.”

  34. I like Mr. Home’s style. I sometimes think we need to all head down to the recorder’s office and start recording documents. The titles to our homes are so messed up now what does it matter if a few more deeds, assignments or satisfactions, (notarized of course) get thrown into the mix. Reading some of the language on the D/T I have looked at is so nonsenical it is no wonder a judge would rule for Mers or a Servicer. I don’t know how a r.e. attorney can begin to make sense of something that is senseless, let alone a title company…lol.

  35. tnharry

    Did you just mention “broke back mountain”? really?

    Fannie is waay more criminal than Chesseburger king, they have intentionally done millions of these steal a house jobs. Marshall chesseburger is trying to bring notice to their thievery for the common person to let them know that crap like this is happening. He is bringing the light knucklehead, figure it out and get your head outta your as*

  36. What Home is doing is no different than the Bostonian’s who threw tea into the Boston Harbor. Home is making a stand. I think most will see him as a true patriot. I hope law enforcement is just as lenient with him as the they have been with the banks.

    The banks are beyond stupid and sloppy. How do you explain the need for robo-signed and notary frauded documents? And you can’t excuse the banks peddling their toxic assets on innocent investors as stupid and sloppy either.

  37. I think what he’s doing is a novel concept. We citizens have been sold out to big banks by big brother. How else can you fix a broken behemith but by tearing it down? The government has gotten way too big, spending us into obsolescence. People are afraid of government, they can seize your assets, your home anything they want. The Patriot act has opened the doors to extinguishing rights of the individual in the name of national security, creating tyranny. What we need is a government that serves and fears the people, then you have Liberty.

    Nice Job Mr House, If I lived in Tucson, I’d vote for him.

  38. Was Robin Hood a criminal or was King John the criminal in Merry Old England?
    I don’t remember how that story ended when King Richard returned from the
    Crusades in the Middle East. Are we repeating history?

  39. Aren’t the pretenders filing false deeds? As far as I can tell, the pretenders and everyone connected with them are criminals…when my servicer tells me (in writing), that Deutsche Bank owns my loan, and the spokesman for DB Mr. John Ghallager says publicly over and over that “Deutsche Bank doesn’t own any loans and has no beneficial interest in any loans”—that makes the servicer a liar and a criminal.

  40. usedkarguy it sometimes takes a criminal to expose a criminal. unfortunately.

    I am not saying this guy is a criminal but it sure looks like it.

    But we not criminals need to go back to the issue at hand.

    thanx

  41. why do people (like us) give any credibility to nitwits (like this guy). If he’s filing false deeds, he’s a criminal. Lots of criminals make money under the guise of “helping homeowners”.

    Let’s get back to the business at hand.

  42. This guy is amazing–he’d make a great mayor. This is what you call direct action. It’s nonviolent and proves the points we have all been discussing all this time. This is the kind of stuff we all need to be doing.

  43. by the way, spend a moment googling Mr. Home just for grins.

    just by using his name, you’ve violated his trademark. he’s a “sovereign citizen”. and my favorite – he likes to wear a Burger King paper crown and say he is a “king of America.”

  44. FANTASTIC!!

    He’s doing it for the homeowners. I’m all for it and hope he can get our home back.

  45. you’ve shown me the error of my ways Johnny G. the “big baby” and “lick up to Fannie” statements have hit me hard.

    even your fearless leader Neil said that two wrongs don’t make a right. but here’s where this guy is way more wrong than the banks : they at least “think” they have the right to foreclose, whether they are ultimately found to be right or wrong. and usually someone somewhere down the line is owed a debt or may have the proper right to foreclose. this guy knows for a fact that he has no rights in that home. banks may be stupid, sloppy, etc., but he’s criminal.

    i wouldn’t have the same distinction if the homeowners broke back in to the property. that’s a more understandable use of self-help and i would support them in their fight. they have some property rights and ownership in the land. this wacko seeking publicity for his doomed mayoral race had neither of those.

  46. Unfortunately, my research has shown me that when you screw with “their” banking system, including what Marshall Home has done, you end up in leg irons.

  47. tnharry

    You are such a big baby. Why don’t you go lick up to freddie mac. or cornhoe I mean condone what fannie mae is doing. I say Marshall Home could be a lot of people’s Marshall Dillon.

    Way to go Marshall Home, make em work for it, and please go back and relock thoe doors where those real estate agents are, cause they are clueless.

  48. tnharry – theft is theft, whether its john q public or a monster sized bank behind the theft. lets bet john q public does jail time or at least faces charges for a few thefts vs. the banks who do no time and never face charges for stealing from millions of people and destroying our economy. the banks orchestrated the collapse, bet it would happen, and are now sucking the marrow from the bones of those they have harmed the most. what this guy is doing is nothing compared with what the banks did.

  49. not exactly – he must also have color of title

  50. It’s the Wild West all over again. Adverse possession rules state that if he
    keeps it 7 years and pays the taxes 7 years in a row, he gets to keep it.

  51. This is what each and every community action group nationwide should be doing rather than the “beg for a modification if we can only get your paperwork in order” crap going down for years now. How’s that working out for everyone? I see a lot of banker hands raised.

    How’s about some REAL legal aid….not advice on how to transition to rental housing or an apartment once evicted and foreclosed upon, but how to forcefully take back what is rightfully and still legally ours and was wrongfully and illegally taken?

    It’s way passed time for drawing battle lines. It’s time to armor up and meet the enemy on the field. It’s them or us, and I for one have no room for them in my world any longer. Nor can society survive any more of their bullshit ways of doing business, where we pay for their risk with the sweat of our brows, while they loot the taxpayer’s coffers with reckless abandon, oh….and with the complicit approval of all of the regulatory agencies and lawmakers who continue to pretend not to notice the rape of America outside the beltway. Even free money has proven to not be enough for these bastards, unless it’s guaranteed at 30 to 1 odds.

    So far the court rooms have proven a bloody and one sided battlefield, even to the point of threatening our defense counselors with sanctions or worse. The legislature aids and abets these actions with their silence, like little kids watching a bully take yet more lunch monies. The administration openly courts and fellates the financial sector without the least bit of embarrasment, with thoughts of a fully funded 2012 election dancing in their heads. Whores, plain and simple. (Sorry ladies). “Tis’ a sad thing for a man to betray his oath for monetary gain.” Filthy Lucre!

    I for one AM embarrased, for our country, our people, and our way of life in the U.S. Enough is enough. Rev 2.0. What have we got left to lose that they’re not threatening or passing laws to take as we speak? NO PEACE!

  52. You can’t seriously compare this wacko with the banks. I know i’ve been accused of being a bank apologist in the past, but his actions don’t compare to the banks in the least. And Neil almost seems to be condoning and promoting the behavior. He’s facing at least civil if not criminal charges now.

  53. i think the bottom line is the banks think ONLY THEY are entitled to steal peoples property and homes. how dare someone else get in on the action..

  54. “We called We called the people who hired us and work with Fannie Mae, and they didn’t know anything about a sale,” he said. “It appeared right away the document was fraudulent.”

    -Did you catch that? “.. the people who hired us and work with Fannie Mae” – So who was that? LPS? the “servicer?” Even the real estate agents are at least two steps removed from Fannie.

  55. the banks are pissed that someone else is stealing houses and got in on their action.

  56. Wish there were more of us with his nerve. Our government and financial institutions have turned us into fearful slaves, otherwise known as “law abiding citizens.”
