ID THEFT: Example of one person’s response

Editors’ Note: In response to my post on ID THEFT I received a number of comments and ideas. Here is one example of how someone stuck to the message and forced the issue using ID theft as a defensive tactic as well as preparing for an offensive response.

Are you reading my mind?
Out of the blue in Oct. Got a letter with my mortgage company letterhead stating “welcome to new mortgage company”. Said they changed their name. Separate letter said on Nov 6. stop making payments to them by their name and Nov. 7 start making payments to them by new name.
I know about contracts so I attempted to not contract with new name. It’s been a disaster.

1. No assignment 5 months out, in the Official Real Estate Records.
2. Real Trustee still holds title. I contacted him, but he only represents the beneficiary ‘who has the note and an interest secured in the home”.
3. Checked all three credit reports, 5 months out. Two show old name one show new name all have the same info. I disputed new name in the credit report that had it – stating I didn’t know them.
4. I disputed old name in another credit report since they are no longer exist to force identification of who is updating that report. Got copies of all.
4. Checked SEC filings. Investors bought the first name corporation in 2008. Then on Nov. 6, 2009 they merged the bank into their business. That explains why they said to stop paying one name.
5. Foreclosures under old name on file in Deed of Trust has been without assignment or transfer filings. Using Substitute Trustee. Three problems. Original Trustee still holds title. I already wrote him and know this. Deed of Trust on file has no provision for Substituting the Trustee. By virtue of the ‘merger’ they should have the original documents.
6. Spent 5 months asking them to validate their claim. They send a copy of the Certified copy of my Deed of Trust on file in the public (that does not name them), and a copy of a Certified copy of the Promissory note (that does not name them). Two problems They can’t attach to the Deed of Trust without change or not…their name is ‘not’ the named Lender nor beneficiary in the Deed of Trust. And the Promissory Note was made out to a specific entity. You can’t possibly assume that I have to know that when you sell it, they can come up and say ‘pay me’ when the promissory note is supposed to be held by the person you promised to pay. If they sell it, that’s a different agreement between them and the other buyer, but I can’t be forced into their third party agreement as long as I agree to pay stay right there and let me pay you..but don’t force me to pay someone I did not ‘promise to pay’.
7. They’ve hired a law firm (setting up for a substitute trustee situation). I contacted the firm. (not pro bono, not pro se, no attorney..just me and told them I don’t recognize the other company and I have asked them to validate and they respond with stronger demand for money.) Maybe that’s why I got the ‘copies’ I did get from the mortgage company that does not support their claim.
8. Informed the attorney of their violation of FDCPA by forwarding information to another party and by not disclosing the amount attempted to collect is in dispute.
9. I wouldn’t trust an attorney at this time. The United States is in Bankruptcy, China filed a lien for 45 Million dollars in December 2009.
10. Have a copy of a Substitute Trustee sale by this company. They never released the lien on the debtor they foreclosed on after the sale. If they had the papers they could have released the lien.
11. Once you admit there is a contract you can’t use Statue of Frauds which helps me because I have refused to contract and have refused to pay and requested validation of their claim of a debt owed to them.
Thinking seriously about filing SEC complaint and sending the ‘Communications, Notice and Order’ to the named person listed in their SEC filing and a copy of that to the law firm listed with the words “With a copy to” – in their SEC filing
My identity has been stolen by the company. When I establish an account with one firm, that does not give a right to another firm to step up and say I have the account, change the name, change the terms of your initial agreement and start paying me now because I have a ‘new name’. How can you have an account demanding payment when there is no agreement and you are really a new entity, not just a new name?
I’m learning about Statute of Frauds. It would also appear that Deceptive Trade Practices can be proven in this mess. A company who has no contract attaches to your credit report as if you’ve established business agreement with them? They have no definition in your Deed of Trust, yet they can get an attorney to represent their interest in your document and start nonjudicial foreclosure proceedings. If they have the papers it takes to change the name on the credit report, they should have the papers it takes to file an assignment/transfer and change the name on the Deed of Trust.
I’ve not paid them any money, but I have filed FTC and Attorney General complaints. Not sure if I have to pay the 5 months in arrears as Threat, Duress, and Coercion to get some action done by these public resources I’m using to filing the compliant.

Foreclosure Offense: Notice to Trustee and Alleging Usury

For you Californians or residents of other states who think your transaction is exempted from usury, take another look: (1) the real lender was not a bank and (2) the real transaction was securities transaction in which the borrower was duped into executing documents that consituted the start of the securitization process, so it wasn’t your typical purchase money first mortgage transaction either.

FROM FAQ Page: recent Post

> Open question to all. I have not yet received a notice of default but haven’t made a payment to IndyMac or to the HELOC company Wells Fargo since March. I am preparing to file lawsuits against both and a lis pendens. Should I call my fire insurance carrier now and tell them to change the beneficiary from IndyMac to me?


ANSWER: Your insurance carrier will probably notify the “lender” that you have changed the beneficiary, which is a breach of the mortgage obligation. That will give THEM ammunition against you. You could check on that if you know the insurance agent well enough and he has the knowledge to answer the question.

  1. I would suggest that you send a notice to the Trustee similar to the one on the blog that basically says that Indymac sold off the loan, has been replaced by the Trustee of the pooled assets, and that you have recently discovered that there were several undisclosed elements of the original loan transaction, including the real party in interest that made the loan to you, and fees paid for various undisclosed “services” all in violation of the Truth in Lending Act.
  2. Since you have just learned of this, you are NOW exercising your 3-day right of rescission and you wish to rescind the transaction (“I HEREBY RESCIND”), which would also terminate the Trustee’s authority.
  3. Ask him to report to you who the real holder in due course of your note is and that based upon 10k and 8k filings from Indymac prior to its failure and takeover by the FDIC, it would appear that there are multiple investors who own shares in your mortgage and note, all of whom have a clear claim as holders in due course. Thus any direction or instruction he receives from the “lender” is not from a party with an interest in the mortgage or note and is void or meaningless.
  4. Demand that he forward a copy of the letter you send, certified, return receipt requested, to any parties undisclosed in the closing papers, and of course to forward a copy of the letter to his own errors and omissions carrier and to the carrier for the title insurance, since there was a cloud on title created AT CLOSING by the knowledge of the parties that the loan was “sold forward” or already committed to a third parties who were undisclosed real parties in interest and who collectively constitute the real lender.
  5. Hence the party to whom you would address a notice of rescission to was hidden from you and still is. Thus the 3 day rescission period continues to this day.
  6. Also state that based upon the SEC filings, and your consultation with experts in mortgage backed securities, Indymac’s successors entered into agreements wherein your loan payments could be allocated to payments due on notes from OTHER borrowers in whole or in part — as consequence of the cross guarantee agreements between tranches in the SPV and between SPV entities. You demand to know whether this has in fact occurred.
  7. Further, you are informed that in addition to cross guarantee agreements there was overcollateralization of your loan as part of the the overall scheme of your issuance of the note and insurance purchased with the proceeds of sale of the loan to you and investors in which reserve pools and guarantees of payment were created through payments to third parties, none of which was disclosed to you.
    • And lastly, and perhaps most importantly, if you think that your loan was based upon a false appraisal (i.e., the appraisal value was shown by subsequent events to be over market), that this was an undisclosed cost of the loan obtained, in addition to damages suffered by the fraud committed on you, and that neither the Good Faith Estimate nor any other effort was made to disclose that this was the case.
    • This inflated appraisal when added to the the other costs of the loan, created a usurious transaction in which the real lender was in fact a private, undisclosed, unregistered, unchartered, unregulated entity, that had failed to pay taxes and fees to the State of California, in addition to failing to report its activities within the state.
    • This real lender entered into an illegal agreement in which the nominal lender” in fact agreed to “lend its license” to the real lender and was paid a fee of approximately 2.5% as a fee to do it, in addition to points and all other costs and fees of closing the “loan”, and interest paid from inception of the “loan.”
    • Since the transaction constituted usury, you hereby declare the obligation on the note null and void and demand treble damages for the original face value of the note.

    I would suggest that the same type of letter, with some modifications, be sent to Indymac, FDIC, the mortgage broker, the title agent, the appraiser, and the real estate agents at the closing of what you thought was a loan transaction but in fact turned out to be a fraudulent scheme to trick you into issuing a note that turned out to be a negotiable security that was already the subject of a plan and agreement to sell unregistered, unregulated securities to third parties who were the true source of the loan.

    If you file suit or even if you file a petition for emergency temporary injunction I would suggest that you consider filing a lis pendens. You might be met with a demand for bond, but your argument would be that no bond is required since there is no delinquency as yet, no real party in interest present and the Trustee has no equitable or legal interest in the property. The proper party to ask for a bond would be someone who could allege they will be hurt by the filing of the lis pendens.
