FOLLOW THE MONEY and THEN THE DOCUMENTS

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mary Cochrane with her endless research provides an in depth look at the subsidiaries of Wells Fargo below.

The point here is that you should be following the money rather than concentrating on the chain of documents. If you follow the money, then you don’t really need as many documents to prove your point. A table-funded loan if it a customary practice of the alleged “lender” means by definition that the “lender” was not the Lender. What does that mean? The Lender is the party who actually lent their own money or credit for the funding of your loan. In virtually cases where there was a securitized loan involved at the “closing” the party disclosed to you as the Lender was an originator, which is a glorified unlicensed mortgage broker — also known as a sham party or straw-man. Yet this is the party named on the note as payee and this is the party named on mortgage deed or deed of trust as the Lender. ANd MERS is often identified as the mortgagee or beneficiary despite the fact that it too handled no money.

So who handled the money? The closing agent, that’s who. The closing agent is usually the same party as the escrow agent. The escrow agent receives a wire transfer or instructions to fund the closing from an account they already have access to. Those instructions include an instruction to send back any excess money to whoever was the source of the funds. So if you are following the money, then you are going to ask the escrow/closing agent for the closing instructions they received and copies of any wire transfer confirmation or instructions. What you won’t see is the “originator” who is just being paid a fee for pretending to be the Lender. You’ll see parties you never heard of, which is where Mary’s list comes in. The party might be one of the dozens of subsidiaries of the megabanks.

Why is this important? Because when all the facts are in about the money trail, then you can ask for documentation between the parties at closing and the sources of funds and instructions. Why is some third party you never heard of dictating instructions to the closing agent if the Lender is supposedly at the table with you at closing? Any lawyer, which includes any Judge who practiced law, knows that those instructions must come from the actual Lender, or an authorized agent or officer for the Lender — whose authority can be easily established through documentation which is ordinarily disclosed in one form or another to the borrower at or before closing.

But these supposedly securitized loan closings are different. There is no authority for the remote entity dictating instructions to give any instructions to the closing agent — because the homeowner’s deal, according to the documents provided to the borrower under the Truth in Lending Act, identify the originator as the Lender, which now we know was not true — they were not the Lender. AND the Originator never had any authority, nor does the closing agent, to act in any way for the actual Lender.

Is the party who wired the funds and who issued the instructions the actual Lender? NO! They are merely the conduit through which the actual Lenders’ money was passed. It can be compared to when you write a check. The depository bank upon which you write the check is not a party to your transaction and can’t be sued by anyone if you were paying for toaster and it didn’t work. They are merely a vendor in transmitting the money. The parties who were the Lender, collectively, were the investors who advanced funds for bogus mortgage bonds when they were “sold forward” to the investors without the investors realizing that the pools of assets that were referenced in the prospectus did not exist. And there was no attempt to ever actually fill the pools despite clear instructions in the pooling and servicing agreement, and assignment and assumption agreement on doing just that. In short, the pools were empty and stayed empty.

The unfortunate Lender was left with a bunch of papers that were never signed by the borrower. And the papers signed by the borrower did not describe the actual money trail, so they are defective and invalid. And the actual monetary transaction actually has no documentation that connects all the dots. If the dots were connected, it would require disclosure. If there was disclosure then the the investors would have known what was going on with these closings and that that parts of the money they gave for funding mortgages were instead being taken as fees and profits by the investment banker who was squirreling the money off-shore, so the investment banker could claim they were broke and needed bailout money while sums were being held off-shore that exceeded all the bailout money.

If there was actually disclosure neither the investor-lender nor the homeowner-borrower would have signed onto the deal. Both were relying upon false statements inflating the value of the property and the securities. No borrower would ever sign a deal where they knew they were signing up for  a mortgage loan that, at closing, was worth far less than the loan balance. And no investor would have advanced funds even if the borrower was willing to do the deal.

Magic requires the magician to direct your attention to something else while he makes the rabbit appear. In this case the magic is getting you to look at the documents as though they were EVER real. They were not. There never was a lien perfected on anyone’s property in these closings and there was no transfer of lien because (1) there was no lien to transfer and (2) they never tried to transfer them. Instead they “lost” or destroyed the documents. Those documents, if they were real were the equivalent of cash. Why would anyone lose or destroy a ten dollar bill? The ONLY answer is because they had told someone )the investors) who gave them money that the $10 bill was actually a $100 bill and now the investor wanted to see the $100 bill that never existed in the first place. Better to say you lost or destroyed it than to produce evidence that would land you in jail!

From Mary Cochrane:

Have Patience on this segment so youi can understand how your RETAIL MORTGAGE purchase as a Promissory Note under UCC Codes between states harmed the US Economy two Master Servicers, their Agencies and SPV’s of the Parents Lehman Brothers & Wells Fargo & Co:

Subsidiaries of Wells Fargo & CO/MN (formerly Norwest Corp) folowed by the business entity Jurisdiction of Incorporation

Why focus on 12/31/2005 10K?
The heightened period where MERS humming away, United States Goverment wanted in on the yeilds and $4 to $1 payouts from the ponzi money laundering scheme. Bernie Madeoff with the cash sits in jail alone. When will he have company?

Consumers wondering how did your retail purcahse of a financial products manufactured by an SPV called a ‘mortgage loan’ and ‘promissory note’ get in the hands of ‘Wells Fargo Bank NA’ many wonder. Well you either did business directly with WFHM storefronts or one of their subsidiaries or one of their clients! At the end of the day the transactions were organized in such a fashion if you defaulted you would be harmed by ‘a national banking association’ and unable to get help in the COURTS. The SPV’s made sure all of the foreclosures and/or resulting bankruptcies and taking possession of your property in a larcenous manner would be for the benefit of the SERVICER on the RETAIL side the beneficiary of the unlawful business acts and simply a ‘mule’.

WFC’s commercial clients like Lehman, JPM dba Chase Manhattan Mortgage Corporation, GMAC-RFC dba GMAC Mortgage CORP, Norwest Mortgage, BANCO Mortgage, … Handler is Wells Fargo Bank NA as TRUSTEE who push the currency of the comercial investors to the left

Key WFC Affiliates controlled the ‘Real Estate Indusry’ and Wells Fargo Bank NA as TRUSTEE in Agreements with Aencies were feed literally by the MULES their own ENHANCED private brand labelers whose Cendant Settlement Agencies and SPV’s provided the currency via RETAIL transactis handled by ‘Mules’ who did not know they were bringing the bacon home to ‘WFC’

Settlement Agencies and Agents became in 2007 ‘subsidiaries’ of the IPO entities morphed out of Cendant which began in 2005.
Goldman and CDMC for example benefitted from this relationship.

Sorry ERA Franchises, Century 21, Coldwell, Sotherby’s, Better Homes & Gardens, and …
you did not know as … ‘Brokers’ ‘Agents’ ‘Dealers’ ‘Distributors’ you were feeding the beast.

Because they use ‘national bank’ on their transactions that may have harmed you as a consumer, the LOOPHOLE of the UCC Codes and regulations of the Federal Reserve got Congress to approve ‘do not investigate’ when consumers try to report facts of harm and injury over the past DECADE revaling how these Agencies and SPV’s are harming not only the families but nation!

MERS President and CEO R.K. Arnold Appears Before U.S. Senate

Washington, D.C., Nov. 16—R.K. Arnold, president and CEO of MERSCORP, Inc., testified today before the United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. To download a copy of his testimony, please click here. For questions, please contact Karmela Lejarde at 703-761-1274.

http://www.mersinc.org/newsroom/press_details.aspx?id=252

1 MERSCORP, Inc. is structured as a privately held stock company. Its principal owners are the Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bank of America, Chase, HSBC, CitiMortgage, GMAC, American Land Title Association, and Wells Fargo. MERS is headquartered in Reston VA.

2 Members tend to register only loans they plan to sell. Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase are the principal members in this regard. They service most of the loans they originate themselves, so registering their retail business on the MERS® System is of less practical value to them. However, when these institutions purchase loans from others, known as their correspondent business, they do require that those loans be registered on the MERS® System.

3 MERS makes its money through an annual membership fee (ranging from $264 to $7,500) based on organizational size, and through loan registration and servicing transfer fees. MERS charges a one-time $6.95 fee to register a loan and have Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. serve as the common agent (mortgagee) in the land records. For loans where Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. will not act as the mortgagee, there is only a small one-time registration fee ($0.97). This is known as an iRegistration. Transactional fees (ranging from $1.00 to $7.95) are charged to update the database when servicing rights on the loan are sold from one member to another.

4 The originating lender may be the servicer in some cases.

5 A copy of a sample mortgage document can be found in Attachment One. A short summary of MERS prepared by the Mortgage Bankers Association can be found in Attachment Two.

6 This action tells the world that there is a lien against the property. This is done to protect the lender’s interest. The recording of the mortgage puts future purchasers on notice of any outstanding claims against the property.

7 The promissory note is not (and never has been) recorded or stored with the county land records office. The note is a negotiable instrument that can be bought and sold by endorsement and delivery from the seller to the note purchaser. This activity is governed in all fifty states by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Article 3.

8 The MERS® System is the database; MERSCORP, Inc is the operating company that owns the database; and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc (“MERS”) a subsidiary of MERSCORP, Inc., which serves as mortgagee in the land records for loans registered on the MERS® System. For discussion purposes, “MERS” may be used in this testimony to refer to all three entities unless specifically stated otherwise.

9 The design of the MERS® System always anticipated and required that borrowers would be able to access the system to determine the servicer of their loans. Providing such information to MERS is a requirement of membership and loan registration.

When Congress acted last year to require that borrowers be told when their note is sold and the identity of the new note-owner,

MERS established, within a matter of weeks, a new service called Investor ID. Of the 3,000 members of MERS, 97% agreed to disclose the identity of the note-owner through the MERS® System. Fannie Mae opted to be disclosed. Freddie Mac chose not
to be disclosed.

10 The issue of whether transfers of residential mortgage loans made in connection with securitizations are sufficient to transfer title and foreclosure rights is the subject of a “View Point” article entitled “Title Transfer Law 101” by Karen Gelernt that appeared in the October 19, 2010 edition of the American Banker. A copy can be found in Attachment Three.

11 A 1993, 36-page white paper entitled “Whole Loan Book Entry Concept for the Mortgage Finance Industry” addresses the concepts underlying MERS and the problems it was designed to address. It is available upon request.

12 The essential elements of the legal principles underlying MERS can be found in “MERS Under Attack: Perspective on Recent Decisions from Kansas and Minnesota,” an article by Barkley and Barbara Clark in the February 2010 edition of Clark’s Secured Transactions Monthly. A copy of this article can be found in Attachment Four.

13 On loans originated by correspondent lenders or brokers (where MERS is not the mortgagee), the costs of preparing assignments and the associated filing fees are listed on the HUD-1 and paid directly by the borrower.

14 Individual states handle real estate foreclosures differently. In some states the foreclosure process is judicial, and in some states it is non-judicial. Under both systems, time frames and terms vary widely from state to state. A brief, general, description of both processes prepared by the Mortgage Bankers Association can be found in Attachment Five.

15 Some important recent cases upholding the rights of MERS include:

16 A review of the use of MERS in all fifty states was done by Covington and Burling in 1996 and 1997 as part of the due diligence associated with the creation of MERS. It is available upon request.

Announcement
Number 2011-01
Page 1 of 2
To: All MERS Members February 16, 2011
Re: Foreclosure Processing and CRMS Scheduling MERS is providing the following guidance to all Members to strengthen business practices, and minimize reputation, legal and compliance risk to MERS and its Members. In recent months legal challenges have arisen regarding alleged inadequacies and improprieties in the foreclosure process including allegations of insufficient or incorrect supporting documentation and challenges to the legal capacity of parties’ right to foreclose. MERS is committed to reevaluate and strengthen its systems and procedures to protect against these types of legal challenges. Consistent with this approach we have enhanced the Corporate Resolution Management System (CRMS) and instituted related policies and procedures designed to strengthen MERS’ business practices and limit compliance risks. To comply with this guidance, MERS Members should implement the following practices, effective immediately.
1. MERS is planning to shortly announce a proposed amendment to Membership Rule 8. The proposed amendment will require Members to not foreclose in MERS’ name. Consistent with the Membership Rules there will be a 90-day comment period on the proposed Rule. During this period we request that Members do not commence foreclosures in MERS’ name. If a Member determines that it will commence a foreclosure in MERS’ name during this 90-day period, two weeks advance notice must be given to MERS to permit verification of the appointment and current status of the Certifying Officer proposed to participate in the foreclosure. No foreclosure may be processed in MERS’ name without first obtaining this verification. We encourage Members to bring foreclosures only in the name of the holder of the note, in the name of the trustee or the servicer of record acting on behalf of the trustee.
2. MERS Members shall have a MERS Certifying Officer (also known as MERS Signing Officer) execute assignments out of MERS’ name before initiating foreclosure proceedings. Assignments out of MERS’ name should be recorded in the county land records, even if the state law does not require such a recording (see MERS Membership Rule 8).
3. For all future assignments and the execution of other documents in the name of MERS, Members must use a MERS Certifying Officer who has been appointed under our new certifying officer process, which, after November 1, 2010, uses a new form of corporate resolution. Under our new process, all Certifying Officers are also being tested and appointed under the enhanced CRMS. Only Certifying Officers appointed under the new form of corporate resolution, tested, and transitioned onto CRMS after November 1, 2010 should execute assignments. We are in the process of ensuring that all Members are transitioned onto CRMS in compliance with our new policy, and we will work with all Members to ensure the transitions can be accomplished in an orderly and expeditious way. For those Members who have not undergone this transition onto the CRMS, you will receive login credentials and further instructions from MERS on how to complete this process. It is important that you follow all instructions and that you complete this process as quickly as possible. MERS will be communicating with you to notify you when your Company will be transitioned onto the CRMS under our new policy. Once your Company has access to the CRMS, all of your existing and potential Certifying Officers should work quickly to complete the certification process. Once all of your existing and potential Certifying Officers have successfully completed the certification process, you will need to submit your request to MERS for approval. Submissions from your Company will only be accepted during the phase-in period assigned to you. Because it will take some time to transition under our new policy, Certifying Officers can continue to execute documents in MERS’ name under existing resolutions until the new corporate resolution is issued to your Company. However, if your Company does not submit the request to MERS through the CRMS in the timeframe assigned to you, you will not be issued a new corporate resolution and any prior corporate resolutions issued to your company will be revoked.

MERS Members should ensure the accuracy of the information in the complaint and foreclosure affidavit that addresses, where applicable, the authorization under which a MERS Certifying Officer validly assigned the mortgage to the foreclosing note-holder.
5. Other business practices Members should perform on a periodic basis include:
 Conduct a review of employees designated as Certifying Officers and reconcile to the CRMS to ensure MERS has an up-to-date and accurate list of Certifying Officers;
 Ensure employees designated as Certifying Officers receive appropriate training to carry out their duties and responsibilities as Certifying Officers; and
 Reconcile with CRMS to update corporate resolutions and signing authority agreements to ensure appropriate Certifying Officers are validly appointed.
If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact the MERS Law Department at mers@mersinc.org, or call the MERS corporate office at 703-761-1270 and ask for the MERS Law Department. The MERS Help Desk will not be able to assist in this matter.

CMO Collateralized Mortgage Obligation

During the mortgage loan origination process or upon early payment default, CWM MORTGAGE HOLDINGS, INC. (“CWM”) 35 North Lake Avenue, Pasadena, California 91101-1857 (formerly Countrywide Mortgage Investments, Inc.) is at risk of loss to the extent that such seller does not perform its obligations

CWM acts as master servicer with respect to the mortgage loans it sells.
Master Servicing includes collecting loan payments from servicers of loans and remitting loan payments, less master servicing fees and other fees, to a trustee for each series of mortgage-backed securities master serviced.

Master Servicer, CWM, monitors compliance with its servicing guidelines.

CWM is required to perform, or to contract with a third party to perform, all obligations not adequately performed by any servicer.

CWM Master Servicing as of 9/30/1994:
27,084 loans $6.3 billion outstanding principal balance

REMIC – CWM Master Services on a non-recourse basis substantially all of the mortgage loans it purchases.

Each series of mortgage-backed securities is typically fully payable from the mortgage assets underlying such series, and the recourse of investors is limited to those assets and any credit enhancement features, such as insurance.

Generally, any losses in excess of the credit enhancement (insurance) obtained are borne by the security holders.

Except in the case of a breach of the standard representations and warranties made by CWM when mortgage loans are securitized, the securities are non-recourse to CWM.

Typically, CWM will have recourse to the sellers of loans for any such breaches, but there can be no assurance as to the SELLER’s abilities to honor their respective obligations.

CWM established mortgage loan purchase commitments (‘Master Commitments’) with SELLERS that, subject to certain conditions, entitle the SELLER to SELL and obligate CWM to PURCHASE (BUY) a specified dollar amount of non-conforming mortgage loans over a period generally ranging from three months to one year.

Master Commitment specify whether a SELLER may sell loans to CWM on a mandatory, best efforts or optional basis, or a combination thereof.

Master Commitments do not obligate CWM to purchase loans at a specific price, but rather provide the seller with a future outlet for the sale of its originated loans based on CWM quoted prices at time of PURCHASE (BUY).

Master Commitments specify types of mortgage loans seller is entitled to sell to CWM and generally range from $5Million to $1Billion in aggregate committed principal amount.

The provisions of CWM Seller/Servicer Guide are incorporated in each Master Commitment.

Provisions may be modified by negotiations between the parties.
Individualized Master Commitment options available to SELLERS which include alternative pricing structures.

To obtain a Master Commitment, each SELLER is generally expected to pay a non-refundable upfront or non-delivery fee, or both, to CWM.

9/30/1994, CWM had outstanding Master Commitments with 100 SELLERS to purchase mortgage loans in the aggregate principal amount of appox. $9.3 Billion over periods ranging from 3 months to one year, of which $2.4 Billion had been purchased or committed to be purchased pursuant to …

Substantially all of the CWM assets are pledged to secure the repayment of Collateralized Mortgage Obligations, reverse purchase agreements and other borrowings.

Anticipated substantially all of the mortgage loans CWM acquires in the future will also be pledged to secure borrowings pending securitization or sale or as part of their long-term financing.

Cash flows received by CWM from its investments that have not yet been distributed, pledged or used to acquire mortgage loans or other investments may be the only unpledged assets available to unsecured creditors and stockholders in the event of liquidation of CWM.

In purchasing mortgage loans and issuing mortgage-backed securities, the
Company competes with established mortgage conduit programs, investment banking firms, savings and loan associations, banks, FNMA, FHLMC, the Government National Mortgage Association (‘GNMA’), mortgage bankers, insurance companies, other lenders and other entities purchasing mortgage assets. Certain changes currently taking place in the mortgage industry, including technological initiatives promoted by FNMA and FHLMC which could give such entities direct access to mortgage borrowers, may have an adverse impact upon current sellers to the Company’s mortgage conduit operations.

Mortgage backed security is a type of derivative security, the cash flow on which is derived from payments on an underlying pool of mortgage loans.

Securities retained in connection with its issuance of mortgage-backed securities in the form of REMIC’s

Securities purchased in third party transactions.

Liquidity:
CWM uses proceeds from, among other things,

Reverse purchase agreements to meet its working capital needs.

CWM reverse purchase arrangements are subject to collateral maintenance agreements whereby the Company, in effect, may borrow a specified percentage of the market value of the mortgage loans and mortgage-backed securities which are the subject of the arrangements.

Market value generally determined by the LENDER.

If market value of the collateral declines (as will be the case if interest rates increase), additional collateral is required to secure such borrowings.

If the required amount of collateral is increased, CWM ability to raise funds through subsequent similar arrangement may be diminished.

If CWM fails to post such additional collateral, the LENDER may terminate such arrangement, accelerate CWM obligations and sell or retain the existing collateral in order to satisfy CWM debt.

CWM as implemented a hedging strategy for the portion of its mortgage portfolio held for sale which to some extent may mitigate the effects of adverse market movement.

Currently CWM does not have committed financing facilities available for the portion of its warehouse lending program pursuant to which CWM may make loans that are secured by SERVICING rights, SERVICING sales receivables and FORECLOSURE and REPURCHASE MORTGAGE LOANS, nor does CWM have committed financing facilities available for its newly organized CLP’s.

POTENTIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

Although the Company believes that its relationships with
CAMC,
CCI and
CFC
provide significant benefits to its various operations, CWM is subject
to potential conflicts of interest arising from its relationship with its
manager, CAMC, and CAMC’s affiliates.

CAMC, through its affiliation with CFC,
has interests that conflict with those of CWM in fulfilling many of its
duties.

Although CWM generally purchases (BUYER) mortgage loans on a servicing
retained basis (where the seller retains the servicing rights) and

CFC purchases (BUYER)mortgage loans on a servicing released basis
(where the buyer acquires the servicing rights),
CWM may from time to time compete with CFC for the
purchase of mortgage loans in those cases where sellers are evaluating servicing
retained as well as servicing released sales options.

In addition, CWM relies upon CAMC
(which has entered into a subcontract with CFC to provide
certain management services to CWM) for the day-to-day operation of its
business.

Currently, CWM has no employees and relies upon CAMC and its
employees to conduct CWM business including its mortgage conduit,
warehouse lending and construction lending operations.

In conducting its operations, CWM may utilize
CFC as a resource for:
loan servicing, personnel administration and loan production.

No assurance can be given that the Company’s relationships with CAMC and its affiliates will continue indefinitely.

The failure or inability of CAMC to provide the services required of it under
the management agreement (or of CFC to perform its obligations under its
subcontract with CAMC) or any other agreements or arrangements with CWM
could have a material adverse effect on CWM’s business. In addition, as
sole holder of all outstanding voting stock of INMC, CFC has the right to elect all
directors of INMC.

Such directors elect the INMC officers and determine the dividend policy of INMC.
