February 4th court hearing... read UPDATE below!

CONNECTICUT LAWSUIT UPDATE: ..ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BE HEARD IN COURT BY JUDGE DRONEY IN HARTFORD CONNECTICUT FOR THE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION HEARING, READ UPDATE BELOW

Breaking News Update:
"Plaintiffs in the Hanson v. Ocwen case file papers to disqualify the judge, because (according to the papers publicaly filed in the federal court clerk's office) it turns out that the judge used to work for the law firm representing Moss Codilis, which constitutes 16 of the 20 defendants in the class action lawsuit."

No indication when the Judge will consider the motion, or if he will feel obligated to pass the motion on to another judge to decide. It will slow our case down briefly, but thereafter, whether the judge is forced to step aside or continues handling the case, the case will move forward quickly, as we have meticulously shown why there is no justification for the case to sit still as long as it has. [continued below]....
.....



"For several months, Rip-offReport.com has been trying to locate lawyers to take on Ocwen Bank. Ocwen bank has retaliated by a series of dirty tricks which include, but are not limited to, filing bogus Rip-off Reports by attorneys or Ocwen employees pretending to be gathering names for a class action suit, when really they were trying to find out who the victims were on the RipOff Report. (no information was ever revealed) They also filed several false claims by individuals posing as victims, who said they had a lawyer in order to collect names off the Rip-off Report.

Rip-off Report has finally located the attorneys pursuing a class action lawsuit against Ocwen, and Rip-off Report carefully verified their credentials.

ALERT---

"Ocwen Federal Bank has been sued for millions of dollars in a Connecticut federal court for racketeering, breach of contract, unfair debt collection practices, overcharging borrowers bogus service and late and escrow fees, harassment, and mail fraud. The lawsuit is Hanson v. Ocwen, a class-action complaint filed in the Federal District Court in Connecticut [Docket #3:02CV960]. The lawsuit seeks punitive damages in the amount of $1.5 BILLION.

To all the many victims of OCWEN Federal Bank, Listen up! The lawsuit seeks to become a class action, which would then involve all of you who have been complaining day and night about the mistreatment suffered for months or years at OCWEN's hands. There have always been power in numbers, and the class action lawsuit is now hitting back at OCWEN on behalf of all the honest homeowners that it has trampled on for some time now. If you would like to be included in the class action lawsuit, keep reading.

TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND STOP THE BIG, BAD WOLF FROM BLOWING YOUR HOMES DOWN, ONE BY ONE.

HOW TO HELP OUT:
Submit a notarized sworn statement (or Affidavit) summarizing your experience (much like many of you have already done here at RipoffReport.com, but pay attention to spelling and grammar, please, as this may go into the court record for all to see for ever). Rush your Affidavit to the following person:

Kweku Hanson
487 Main Street, Suite Two
Hartford, CT 06103-3007
email: leagltek@mindspring.com
email:
leagltek@mindspring.com"


YOU SHOULD ALSO FILE A RIP-OFF REPORT: Filing a Rip-off Report is also important and should be your first step. Your report will be looked at by other consumers interested with your situation and may relate to and benefit by the rip-off you experienced. The more Rip-off Reports on Ocwen, the more educated other consumers will become, when dealing with Ocwen. This will also help create a better working history on OCWEN and give us the information needed to contact you regarding the disposition of the lawsuit."

ALSO....
In addition to all the hundreds of complaints we have received on Ocwen Bank in the form of Rip-off Reports, we also receive hundreds of e-mails every week asking for our help.

We have contacted Ocwen on many occasions to arrange a wholesale settlement and they have promised us numerous times that they would settle but they have reneged. They have also had their attorneys threaten us.

Having said that, Ocwen Bank has also tried to post to each and every complaint with the following bogus and useless message:

-----------------------
"If you have a concern regarding the servicing of your loan,
E-mail Address: Customerrelations@ocwen.com

Toll Free Phone #: 1-800-804-5561
Mailing Address: Ocwen Federal Bank FSB,
Attention: Research Department, 12650
Ingenuity Drive, Orlando, FL 32826

We strive to provide each of our customers with the utmost in customer care and professionalism and are eager to address any issue or concern that you feel has not been appropriately addressed."

---------------------
At Rip-off Report, it is our opinion and the opinion of other victims that, Ocwen has no intention of resolving these matters. Victims identify no answer on that phone line for several minutes and in some cases almost an hour. Additionally, other victims post that they have received no response to their correspondence even after Rip-off Report posted their comments.

We have notified Ocwen that we cannot and as a matter of policy, will not post these bogus memos at great expense to our time and resources that are only a ruse and an additional run-around to the victims that come to the Rip-off Report.

OandS trucking bad news

AUTHOR: critter - ()

brian underwood and o and s trucking in springfield mo are one of the worst companies on the planet. as an ex-employee who was discharged after being set up on a urinanlysis test.

I spent all day in the office talking with underwood and fleet mgr telling them when i left i was on my way to an appointment.

as soon as i got to my appointment they called did not give enough time to get there and when i got there the place was closed. witness say this and after appealing this to them they added an accident that i never had. mr. underwood had it out for me for some reason. DO NOT work there, they are bankrupt and are not making day to day decisions for themselves and if you do not tow the line they will find a way to get rid of you. I cannot get a job at all now because according to them I am a drug addict that runs over everything in site. I do not want to see anybody else get caught up in underwoods web of lies. having documented proof of these lies he still reuses to even speak to me. I hope this sinks in with anybody applying. there are many good companies that treat their employees with respect, O and S trucking is not one of them

New address for Ocwen Finanical Corp.

AUTHOR: Smyrna - ()

Ocwen Finanical Corp. moved to Atlanta, Ga. several months ago. the address is 2200 Summit Blvd. Atlanta, Ga.

If you go there you will be told by a lady behind locked door that someone will come out to speak to you.

A person who is employed by a company owned by Ocwen will come out of a door of Altisource and give you

a name and phone number in Florida. When you call the machine will tell you that the person is unavailable,

leave you name and number and they will call at earliest convenice, which will bw never. People with problems

can file in Federal Court, pay no fees with the proper document and take them to court. Should the reported

1560 comliaints go to court someone will listen. I am in Federal Court now. Good luck.

Mortgage Servicing Fraud

AUTHOR: Lesa - (U.S.A.)

Tonya--Ocwen intentionally creates confusion to their benefit. Go to www.loansafe.org and read some of the forums on mortgage servicing problems. You might want to send Ocwen a QWR and force them to respond with a complete accounting of your mortgage. You can learn what your rights are and how to fight them back. They assume the homeowner will not be wise to all of their scams and fraud and intentionally wear you down. The advisors at Loansafe are very helpful and there is also email contacts there so you can get a response from Ocwen instead of the usual runaround. Educate yourself and know your rights so you can fight these people back. I am also a victim and Ocwen is the worst of the worst. I finally got tired of all of their scams and hired an attorney as that was my only recourse. I also have suffered their abuse of intentionally posting ontime payments late and then they report falsely to the credit bureaus. This destroys your credit and makes it impossible to get away from them.

Also filing a complaint with HUD and the FTC is important. Go to the websites and there are complaint letters to follow and also proper addresses. They are being investigated and all of these complaints are important.

Loansafe can advise you on the other violations--they are not attorneys but will tell you if you need to seek legal counsel. Good luck and fight these people back.

Also a victim

AUTHOR: Tonja - (U.S.A.)

I am dizzy just from reading all of these reports about Ocwen, but I am sad to say that they are all true because I too have been victimized by them. Please, please notify me of any class action suit against them. I have been milked out of thousands of dollars. I purchase my house in 2002 for 132,000. I put $20,000 down on my house, have had 2 forebearance agreements, been in foreclosure twice, have paid them double my mortgage for a year at one point still to be reported late to the credit bureaus, and still owe them more than I borrowed, which was 112,000. The monthly statement is impossible to decipher and the CSR's are impossible to understand. When asked to explain all of the numerous charges on the statement no one can ever do so. Each time you get a CSR they give you a different story. They have collected payments from me and not posted them to my account. They have made mistakes when taking my banking information over the phone and charged me a bounced check fee because their rep transposed the numbers of my bank account. They have lost documents that I have sent them requesting explanations of charges. They have offerd me a loan modification then changed their mind without notifying me. When I tried to refinance my mortgage they refused to give the company a payoff amount until the company took back the offer. No one will ever give you the same answer as the person before him or her. I am just totally fed up and wish someone would investigate these crooks. Our government is giving relief to those who got shafted with ARM's but what about us who didnt even apply to Ocwen, just had our mortgage sold from under us without notifcation?

Please call me at (((ROR redacted))) or email me at (((ROR redacted))) with any useful information. It is a shame that the only attorney willing to take on these crooks happened to be a crook himself. Oh well, guess it takes one to know one!

Thank you.

Norgle sleeps in the Northern District of IL. Hanson-lead plaintiff- is in prison. Take your cases back ASAP if you can.

AUTHOR: Robin - (U.S.A.)

I stopped responding to these Ocwen complaints some time ago. I became rather unpopular due to my attempts to warn people of Hanson's defection from his promised way forward. No one believed me, so things had to run their course. Mr. Hanson had the upper hand with his line of BS to everyone. Maybe some of you are wondering what happened to him or how to get in touch with Hanson.

Hanson made promises that he did not fulfill. He did not attempt to remove his class from Norgle's court in Illinois as he said he would. When the MDL panel took the case there, Hanson just quit. He turned the bus around. Hanson knew that Norgle would make Droney look like a jack rabbit in the speed department and he still did not attempt to remand the case back to CT. The whole festering mess still sits there in IL at last check.

If you are in this class, try to get out of it. Join another class or launch your own case. Don't wait another minute. Ocwen has suffered some tremendous defeats in TX and those cases can be used to build your own case. Look them up and use them. Sealy Davis vs. Ocwen

I don't suppose that Ocwen has anyone "bumped off". We have scattered like chaff in the wind and some of us still fight on our own in various venues. Never again will I place so much faith in someone else as I did Hanson. That is the lesson I learned from this whole heartbreaking debacle.

It seems that Attorney Hanson had found another "hobby". I am not sure what his conviction does to his class, but I strongly suspect it is detrimental to all involved.

KWEKU HANSON TO BE SENTENCED IN HARTFORD SUPERIOR COURT AFTER PLEADING GUILTY ON SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES


(Hartford) - Kweku Hanson, DOB. 6/21/61, is due to be sentenced in Hartford Superior Court at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2007 before Judge Koletsky. On October 26, 2007 Hanson plead guilty to two counts of Sexual Assault in the Second Degree; two counts of Risk of Injury to a Minor Child; one charge of Possession of Child Pornography in the First Degree; and two counts of Tampering with a Witness.

He is to receive a total effective sentence of twenty-five years execution suspended after he serves six years incarceration followed by thirty years of probation. The first two years of his probation he will be essentially under house arrest and subjected to electronic monitoring utilizing GPS tracking. He must register as a Sex Offender; undergo Sex Offender Evaluation and Treatment; have no direct or indirect contact with the victims or their immediate families; no unsupervised contact with any child under the age of sixteen years of age; subject himself to the full complement of conditions by which the Office of Adult Probation may monitor sex offenders; and sign and comply with Probation conditions restricting his access and use of computers and electronic devices including cameras and recording equipment.

The State of Connecticut and the state of New York, where Hanson had been admitted to the practice of law, are both seeking to permanently revoke his law licenses.

At the time of his initial arrest in September, 2005 Hanson was an attorney actively practicing law in the Connecticut courts as well as in the Federal Immigration Courts.

The victims of the Sexual Assaults and Risk of Injury Charges were fourteen and fifteen at the time of the assaults. Hanson initiated contact with them through the course of his legal practice involving the victims and/or members of their families. The Sexual Assaults took place at various locations including Hanson's Law Offices on Main Street , Hartford.

The criminal investigation of Hanson continued after Hanson's initial arrest in September, 2005. The investigation was lead by Detective Sabine Nyenhuis of the Hartford Police Department; Investigator Norman Tacey of the Hartford State's Attorney's Office; and Daniel Tramontozzi of the Connecticut State Police's Computer Crimes and Electronic Evidence Laboratory. Their investigative research lead to the recovery of over six hundred sexually explicit images that Hanson had stored and then attempted to delete from his workplace computers. These images were the basis for the Possession of Child Pornography charges that Hanson was later arrested on and to which he eventually plead guilty to.

Hanson continued, even after he was ordered held on bond following his arrest on new charges in March, 2007, to effectuate contact with the victims in an effort to coerce them into not cooperating with the State. Letters sent from prison by Hanson to the victims and members of their families gave rise to the Tampering With Witness Charges filed against Hanson.

In commenting on Hanson's sentencing, Hartford Police Chief Daryl K. Roberts stated, "The sentencing of Kweku Hanson today is the culmination of more than two years of hard work on the part of investigators of the HPD's Juvenile Investigative Division, particularly HPD Detective Sabine Nyenhuis, the Hartford State's Attorney's Office and the Connecticut State Police's Computer Crimes Laboratory. Their unrelenting pursuit of evidence in this case is a testament to their dedication and commitment to protect and serve the public. As a result of their actions a sexual predator will be locked up and will no longer be a threat to young women everywhere."

Watch Out Ocwen has other also doing their Dirty deeds

AUTHOR: Lynnette - (U.S.A.)

I've been in my home for seven year and got into some financial trouble wherein I had to file Bankruptcy. So we I refinanced I had some brokers with whom I trusted and thought had my best interest at heart but after further review did not. [They have since gone out of business and opening another business probably working underneath another name.]

Anyway, due to my credit score I was placed in the sub prime market (paying an astronomical 9.6% on a 187,000.00 ARM 3/27 loan) and was refinanced with OCWEN. When I asked questions in regards to a prepayment penalty I was initially told I did not have one.

I made my initial payment to OCWEN and was immediately sent to their servicing company HomeEq Servicing who too is absolutely horrible. Upon trying to find someone to refinance that is when I found out about the prepayment penalty ($9,333.17 to be exact). After sticking with HomeEq servicing for over a year, I finally found someone to refinance me. I was petrified to stay in the ARM because of the adjustment that may have taken place. But either way, if I had stayed I would have had to pay the Rate of Adjustment and if I refinanced out (like I did), I had to pay the prepayment penalty so either way they got me.

I ended up paying approximately $30,000.00 to these people in less than one year. Upon doing this last refinance all the equity in my home has be tapped due to the exorbitant amounts of money that was paid to HomeEq Service on behalf of OCWEN.

Single Mom Loses Out...

Our family believed my mother was getting ready to pay off her house. After 29 years, we believed it was almost time. We learned it was not time. According to OCWEN, we owe tens of thousands more. My mother's 30 year loan has been extended to 45 years somehow. Her health is not well right now and she sees no end in sight to this nightmare. Hopefully it will all work out and and we can get our mom out of this mess.

American Dream becomes a Nightmare

AUTHOR: Leslie - (U.S.A.)

I know same old story single Mom, struggling (not very well) to make ends meet. I know I got myself in this mess..

HUD sold OCWEN my note, over 10 years I would scrape up, begg and borrowed the +$7,000 a pop (3 times) to keep a roof over my childs head when confronted with "foreclosere in 30 days" When I got behind.

When OCWEN advised me that the other 3 "forbearance" plans were not designed to catch me up, but this new one would, my payment went from 780 (already a burden) to over 1200/mo. I signed the forbearance plan to give me some time. I gave up trying to save my house I walked away.

My balance was less than 60,000 w/over 5,000 in foreclosure fees tacked on. This $5,000 was for the most recent proceedings. They would never give me itemized list from previous 3 foreclosure threats. But I finally got a detail of the "fees" on the latest fiasco. I requested copies of all the reports I was paying for eg "title serach" "appraisals" "copies of filings" I never recieved a response.

When I gave up the house (not my fight with OCWEN), I walked away, put the house on the market (they could have it or it would sell)and I did not make another payment, I used the house as a storage space.

The Irony of it all. Not one foreclosure notice, not even a late notice, just a monthly statement.

Heads Up. It took me a year to sell. I lost 3 buyers in 12 months because OCWEN's failure to respond to inquiries from my agent or the potential buyer's representative. We tried to do a short sell and OCWEN went up on original buyout quote. This part of the journey is over, I have taken a break since the house sold in September, but I am back it the fight.

Ocwen terrible company

AUTHOR: D - (U.S.A.)

I just wanted to say that we have had some very bad experiences with Ocwen. We have paid them so much money, it's unbelievable. We had an escrow account that was sky high, forced insurance that was also very high, and we had so many late fees, attorney's fees, foreclosure fee's.

We had to send them close to $7,000.00 last year, because they said we had to pay all this amount so they wouldn't foreclose on our house, yet when we asked them for a breakdown of what fees were paid with these $7,000.00, they always gave us the run-around, we had to contact the research department, which they said would take anywhere from 15 to 30 days to figure out, but we never received anything.

Til this day we still don't know where that money went. We finally refinanced with another lender just recently...thankfully! and our payoff was outrageous, we ended up paying close to $61,000.00 and our principal balance was $47,500.00...How do you figure?

We didn't question anything at the time of refinance, because all we wanted was to get out of Ocwen. But, we are questioning every single thing on the account from Ocwen. I think we have paid over $13,000.00 in fees to Ocwen.

Gina My Dear I'm So Glad You are still in the fight.

AUTHOR: Jon - (U.S.A.)

Gina, I'm so very glad to see that you are still around. I haven't heard anything from any of the others for quite some time now. I had assumed that they were either paid off (not really) or had just disappeared, as in had been eliminated. Hey, with enough money you can do just about anything, right.

After all they haven't gotten away with defrauding thousands of honest families simply because the police and other law enforcement doesn't give a damn, and/or aren't bright enough. Because we all know that the MS Fraudsters are somewhere between a hollow rock and George Bush when comes to finding something in their so-called intelligence realm.

I mean, if they were smart at all they certainly wouldn't need to resort to Steal, now would they. For instance, take a look at the Ocwen twins little billie & johnny, or whatever the name of those two worthless dregs of the earth may be.

All thought, they come from wealth, and privilege, have gone to the best of schools, colleges, and have had unlimited funding support, they have to resort to running an enterprise that has perfected the process of stealing, lying, committing fraud, extortion and misrepresentation, etc. to a point where it is nearly a form of art.

Yes, I bet their families have got to be so very proud. I'm sure all their buddies back in the synagogue are so very proud of what they have accomplished that they hold them in the highest of esteem. Yeah Right. Actually, I bet that are as ashamed of them as are their families or any one else who has had the extreme misfortune of doing any kind of business with them.

That's just my opinion on the subject.

Has QCWEN changed its name to Dovenmuehle Mortgage?

AUTHOR: Rick - (U.S.A.)

I also wished I knew about this site a few years ago. I just recently discovered I had three(3) false foreclosures on my credit report. One of the false reports was a QCWEN FEDERAL BANK, I had never had a loan with this firm. In contesting the information, I discovered a firm in Lake Zurich, Illinois called Dovenmuehle Mortgage, Inc. was responsible for putting all three false items on my credit history.


The other ones were Harbor Financial, Matrix Financial. I have never had a loan with the firms or with Dovenmuehle mortgage either. In contacting Dovenmuehle Mortgage, this firm will not call back, respond to letters, and their employees are rude and unprofessional. I was just wondering if perhaps Dovenmuehle purchased this corrupt QCWEN firm, then maybe transferred all the criminals from one office to the other, kind of like Dovenmuehle Mortgage shuffles their customers loans around. I can assure you the that the fraud and deceptive crooks didn't leave the industry after QCWEN went under, they are now probably working in Lake Zurich, Illinois with Dovenmuehle Mortgage.

My Opinion

AUTHOR: Jon - (U.S.A.)

Deanna,

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your your spouse.

To answer your question: Nope. It's still preceding at a snail's pace. BTW: just to let you know I'm very much afraid, if not totally certain this lawsuit like so many others before it, will do little if anything at all to change what's going on here. Unfortunately, the victims will continue to be victimized, and our government will continue turn a blind eye to what is so very blatant, and only the select lawfirms will have a reason to celebrate. In other words: it is business as usual for the Mortgage Servicing Fraudsters. I must say that I'm quite sure Attorney Hanson did the alsolute best that he could under the circumstances he had to bring about change and gain justice for all victims. In fact, He may still be fighting the good fight, I just don't know. He may have been a bit too outspoken for his own good but I'm certain he's an honest man with the best intentions, but like so many others, he is just one man against an army of evil.

Wondering what the progress is on OCWEN

AUTHOR: Deanna - (U.S.A.)

I sure wished I had joined this site a few years ago and saw these reports on OCWEN. I too had a mortgage that was sold to this company shortly after my 48 yr old husband passed away. My home burned to the ground in March of 2004. The insurance company was not real fast and timely in their "pay off" of my mortgage. I was instructed by the insurance adjuster to cease making anymore mortgage payments to OCWEN the day after the fire. Si I did what I as instructed.

I began within 1 month receiving calls at work and home from OCWEN asking why I had not remitted my payment and everytime it was someone different. I even provided them with the insurance adjusters phone number so they could call him about the issue. I ended up receiving a certified letter from OCWEN with a court date for foreclosure...on a house that was no longer standing. Everytime I called that place, someone else took the call and seemed to not "remember" the house had burned. After 12 months, things finally got resolved but only after my name appeared in print under the foreclosure section in the daily newspaper twice. And somewhere along the line (((ROR REDACTED COMPETITORS NAME)))bank was in there with OCWEN. Has this mess with OCWEN been resolved or is it still going on?

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!

A victory of sorts

AUTHOR: Ryan - (U.S.A.)

The following is an article that appeared on September 23, 2005 in the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS) has suspended all foreclosure activity in Florida after Judge Walt Logan of The Sixth Judicial Circuit In and For Pinellas County, FL entered an order dismissing 28 of its foreclosure cases with prejudice. MERS is appealing this order to the Second District Court of Appeals in Lakeland, FL.

Judge Logan's ruling is significant in that MERS engaged in the same type of litigation activity that Ocwen has, and continues to, in conducting foreclosures. I think the exact similarities between the MERS cases and those filed by companies such as Ocwen, Wells Fargo, Fairbanks, etc., is proof positive that the entire mortgage industry is thoroughly corrupt and long past due for a reckoning. The question is, how much more of evidence of this is necessary before those with the political and regulatory power do something?

For example, MERS's attorneys filed suits naming the company as the plaintiff, when it has no beneficial interest in the promissory note and mortgage; in fact, MERS has no idea who actually owns, or holds a beneficial interest in, the promissory note in many of its cases. I have personally seen Ocwen's attorney flunkies file foreclosure petitions that do not mention Ocwen by name, but instead name other corporations that only have a merely tangential connection, and non-beneficial interest, in a promissory note. MERS has also filed petitions in which it sought to re-establish "lost" promissory notes, and later filed the original copy of the note when it moved for summary judgment, even though the note contains no endorsement to MERS. I have seen Ocwen and other mortgage companies like it do the same.

Additionally, in the cases where MERS sought to re-establish a lost promissory note, Judge Logan's ruling noted that each of the petitions contained boilerplate language, which copied nearly word-for-word the Florida Statutes on this subject, and contained no case-specific allegations of fact that would support MERS had standing to proceed with a foreclosure, nor did it provide evidence supporting the allegations made. I haven't seen the MERS complaints, but I would bet they closely resemble, or are exact duplicates, of the complaints Ocwen files, which I have read. However, I can tell you in two complaints from Ocwen I have seen like this, made by different law firms no less, the complaints were extremely similar.

In any event, something I think we can do now is write to Judge Logan thanking him for his tenacity in following the MERS cases, which led to his dismissal order, and for his professionalism as a jurist to question the foreclosure cases MERS's attorneys were trying to slide by him. It will also show him that MERS is not an isolated case, but instead there are other mortgage companies which also require his vigilance. Too many Florida judges, especially in my county, see complaints with a corporate plaintiff and automatically assume everything in the complaint must be true without holding the plaintiff to its burden of proving the allegations. Some judges in my county are so lazy they don't bother to even read the record and just hand down arbitrary decisions in favor of the plaintiff.

For attorneys out there, and those who feel comfortable representing themselves pro se, I think this is a tremendous opportunity to file a motion for leave to submit an amicus curiae brief to the Second District on behalf of the appellees in the MERS cases; you can bet the mortgage industry will have its attorneys do so. See Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.370 for instruction. In fact, I will be working with a party in an Ocwen foreclosure case, whose fact pattern is similar to at least one of the MERS cases, and whose case was also before the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court in Pasco County and appealed to the Second District, do just that. The information for the MERS cases on appeal are: Second District Case No.: 05-4541, Date of Notice of Appeal: 09/19/2005, Styling: MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC v. CHERYL JO ECKHARDT, ET AL., Sixth Judicial Circuit In and For Pinellas County, Lower Tribunal Case No.: 05-2665-CI; 05-4544; 09/19/2005 MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC v. GEORGE AZIZE, ET AL Pinellas 05-1295-CI; 05-4546 09/19/2005 MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC v. CARL E. BOUDREAULT, ET AL Pinellas 05-602-CI; 05-4548 09/19/2005 MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC v. JOSE MONTALVO, JR., ET AL Pinellas 04-1919-CI.

I am not sure how the Second District would respond, but I don't think it could hurt for the victims of Ocwen to write the Second District, with the above case information referenced, and explain to them the funny business Ocwen and its attorneys have pulled when it filed foreclosures in their situations. Hopefully, the Second District will see the similarities between the tactics of these two companies and know that this is not an isolated problem.

Finally, I have found a copy of Judge Logan's decision online; however, it's posted in .jpg format. While I know links to other websites are not permitted here, I will attempt to find a way to get it posted here. If you would like to read it before then, though, simply type in the words "Florida Debt Relief," "Order Regarding Standing of MERS" and "Judge Walt Logan" in a search engine and the link to his opinion should come up in the search results.

In any case, here's the article from the Tampa Bay Business Journal:

September 23, 2005

MERS suspends foreclosure activity in Florida
Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems has asked its members to cease foreclosure actions in the name of MERS in Florida pending an appeal of a ruling in the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court in Pinellas County.

In his ruling on Aug. 18, Judge Walt Logan ruled that MERS does not have standing to act as a plaintiff in a mortgage foreclosure suit if it is not the owner of the beneficial interest in the note.

MERS is appealing that decision.

Judge Logan challenged the pleadings filed by local foreclosure attorneys due to a lack of clarity in those pleadings regarding ownership of the promissory note.

Vienna, Va.-based MERS is an electronic loan registry created by the real estate finance industry to eliminate assignments when trading mortgage loans. Borrowers name MERS as mortgagee and nominee for the lender on deeds of trust and mortgages that are recorded in the county land records. Lenders then register the loans on the MERS System and electronically track changes in servicing and beneficial ownership rights over the life of the loan.

Robert - How HUD Screwed Us

AUTHOR: Elizabeth - (U.S.A.)

Robert,

I'm not sure if your house was, but my house was in HUD assignment after the Midwest floods of 1993. It took HUD 6 months to decide whether they would take the assignment or not. That already put us 6 months and $3,500 behind as there was nowhere to make the payments.

Then we started to pay HUD. I noticed that my principal was applied to the principal, and the escrow was applied for property taxes. BUT, the interest that should have been applied was redirected to "administrative fees". I was never able to get an answer out of HUD as to why and what would become of the unpaid interest. By the time they sold my mortgage to Ocwen 2 years later, we had over $11,000 in interest arrearages that were accruing interest.

Hud screwed us, and probably thousands of others by not disclosing this fact when we went into assignment with them.

Drug trafficking and money laundering are bi-partisan efforts.

AUTHOR: Danny - (U.S.A.)

Red vs. Blue, liberal or conservative, up is down. It's a very clever way to distract peoples' attention from what's going on behind the scenes and who's pulling both corporate parties' strings. No, I'm not talking about the Illuminati, the Masons, David Icke's lizard people, or anything like that. Those can't be proven and theories involving them often require a lot of circular logic and invoking one's suspension of disbelief. Agitprop often disguises itself as a fellow traveler as well.

But there is a power elite which transcends politcal party, just as it does political boundaries. There was -- emphasis on 'was' -- an investigative reporter that had a name for it. He called it 'The Octopus'. This was certainly appropriate, because its tentacles reach into countries, governments, government agencies, political parties; right down to individual people. In fact, if one looks hard enough, one can almost make out one of its tentacles reaching into Florida.

Since everything old is new again, a little history lesson is in order. A good place to start is the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. No, not Senator Kerry's lame committee report that failed to go deep enough; otherwise, our present reality might be very different. For extra credit, why wasn't the S&L scandal just about a bunch of people that couldn't balance a checkbook? I mean, Lawrence King was bad with numbers, but he wasn't an account holder at Banco Lavazzo either.

Anyway, where did all those S&L portfolios go after the Resolution Trust Corp. auctioned them off? Maybe we should ask Catherine Austin Fitts. Why does the CIA love anagrams anyway?

It's like a jigsaw puzzle really. It's only when this one piece is put together with the other pieces, can you step back and see the full picture. Have you ever wondered why South Florida is a main entry point for illegal drugs from the East and South America? Or how all that pure heorin from the flourishing red valleys of Afghanistan has gotten onto our streets? I bet Sibel Edmonds knows; we should ask her. We could have asked Gary Webb, but he's not around to tell us anymore. However, we also might get some useful answers from Indira Singh and Brewster Jennings.

Unquestionably, there's a lot of money in the illegal drug trade. But where does all that money go anyway? I mean, there are laws against having it and it's not like you can take it to a laundromat and make it come clean. Well, you could, but I don't mean clean in that sense.

This post probably has so many flags on it, it's been picked up by ECHELON. In that case, tell Mr. Goss hello!

I believe Mrs Clinton and their Daughter were on that plane a week before the fatal Crash that killed the secretary and his staff. They knew too much maybe didn't they! Come on this was no cheap obsolete aircraft that went down, this was Airforce 2. Somebody didn't want to see Mr Brown on the stands and were afraid of his possible testimony. The details surrounding this crash were to phoney and there was nothing wrong with this special Jet designed for the Chief excective mainly the Vice President. Read what happened and it will blow you away. Oh by the way their was a survior. The Airline steward who was in the very back of the Jet which was the only portion of the plane that was left. She lived for three days and was rescued and in route to the Hospital died for a strange reason, a severed femerol artery.Three days she lived and was fine and talking.Well that was put to rest. No survivors. Oh one more thing, why would Air force 2 just crash into a mountain? Any guesses? A beacon was set up for the Aircraft to follow as it was instructed but it was on course for a sure collision with the mountain.

My point, HUD was doing some bad things and were about to be exposed. The all died and with that a close to that chapter.Oh The Presidential fleet of jets don't crash. This was no get your googles on boys and don't forget the scarfs. This was a new and well maintained aircraft just used by the first Lady and her Daughter.. Ocwen stole 21 thousand dollars of my money when I refinanced making up a story I had arreage with HUD so it was Ocwens Money now since they were able to buy my loan so cheap. Wait until I write it off on my taxes as theft and let see some heads turn.

Ocwen applies for 'dissolution' and transfer. TO OCWEN

AUTHOR: Kate - (U.S.A.)

Ok, this is new - 7/15 http://www.ots.treas.gov/docs/4/480191.pdf

Ocwen has filed a request to approve their dissolution as Ocwen (Ft. Lee NJ) and reassignment of accounts .... to Ocwen (A DELAWARE Limited Liability Company).

the application link is above and it was submitted to and APPROVED BY; Robert Albanese, Regional Director for the Office of Thrift Supervision. That phone number is: 201-413-1000.

I believe that this transfer means that all legal action against the OLD Ocwen will not be any good and all have to refiled against the new Ocwen in Delaware.

How can a government office help a company hide like this?

Just disgusting.

Ocwen Class Action --- "Update" of sorts by Kweku Hanson

AUTHOR: Kweku - (U.S.A.)

Dear Kim, and all the thousands of other victims of Ocwen's fraudulent loan servicing practices.

Once the Hanson v. Ocwen class action was transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Northeren District of Illinois in Chicago and combined with a bunch of others mainly from California, my ability to influence the tempo and vigor of the lawsuit was almost totally obliterated. . . .

Since I filed the class action not in my capacity as a class action lawyer (which I am) but rather as a private plainitff, the newer lawyers basically came in and, with the center of gravity now moved to Chicago from Connecticut, have been litigating the matter as they see it fit.

As a victim-lawyer, my priority had been to try to expose Ocwen's fraud, which Ocwen knows I had ammassed irreebuttable proof of thanks to people working out of its Orlando facility, thanks to ex-employees, thanks to publically available government reports, thanks to hundreds of sworn statements (affidavits) submitted to me by victims from all walks of life and from 44 states and Puerto Rico. I was trying urgently to get a preliminary injunction hearing, as well as a hearing on class certification, and to litigate the case under Civil RICO (racketeering) so that the damages against Ocwen would be deep and punitive as to Ocwen, and discouraging to other predatory servicers.

Well, with me relegated (for NOW) to the preiphery, perhaps the other plaintiffs' lawyers exercising their independent judgment have developed other priorities other than getting a judge to instantly halt Ocwen's fraudulent foreclosures and larcenious billing practices. As some of the prior comments relating to this particular thread of posts show, this shift in the class action (deprioritizing Civil RICO and also not trying to immediately save homeowners from nauseating fraud) led to me myself being accused of having dropped or fumbled the ball . . . (or bus) and resulted in rifts in my relationships with some of the folk who were by my side from close to the inception of this case.

However, to make a long-winded story short, this is the status as far as I know: there are "discussions" under foot. Because I am a lawyer (even though the judge did not recognize me as such in Chicago since I am being represented by my own hand-picked Connecticut lawyers, and this resulted in my being marginalized by my colleagues after I had carried the ball for so far and at such great personal cost), I have to be careful what I say.

I have to sugercoat my words here with phrases like "I surmise that there may be confidential talks underway between adversaries" (whatever that means. Of course, I darn well know what is going on, but I am simply NOT at liberty to say something which may theoretically perhaps maybe likely probably supposedly assumedly (you get my drift) jeopardize anything.

My bottom line has been this: IF there is a settlement (again, assuming any negotiations are underway), then when a settlement is reached, it will (by law) be publically announced in the mass media and possibly via first class mail to all folks covered by the class action. AT THAT POINT EVERYONE WILL HAVE AN OPTION TO OPT OUT OF THE TERMS OF THE SETTLEMENT, OR STAY IN AND ACCEPT THE SETTLEMENT OFFER (whether pennies on the dollar, millions on the dollar, coupons, rebates, or whatever).

Since I still have my legal knowledge, my absolute, unwavering determination to STOP this fraud upon my lawyer's oath, and all the evidence I have compiled (thanks to all of you my fellow victims) and safeguarded in upstate New York, I shall wait and see and then advise myself as to what I will do in the hypothetical event there is a settlement and the terms send sharp pains up my nostrils.

Of course, this is a generalization (and not to be construed as reflecting my position or recommendation one way or another) that IF the majority of class members in any lawsuit opt OUT, the case then MUST be litigated, or the settlement terms renegotiated for the BETTER. So, we shall wait, shall we then?

God bless all the victims who continue to suffer this financial terrorism (yep, lawyer or not, I do not have to mince my words as to what I know is abosultely true and what I can prove in a federal court of law anyday: financial terrorism by Ocwen --- whatever name it might be operating under today).

We are victims too. What's the status of the suit?

AUTHOR: Kim - (U.S.A.)

Dear Kweku,

I have read through the complaints filed on ripoffreport.com and I am curious to know what the status of the law suit is against Ocwen. If the case is still open we definately want to be a part of it.

On June 30th, 2005 we filed bankruptcy in order to keep our home. We
heard from an aquantiance (who read in the paper) that our home was
scheduled for forclosure on July 1, 2005. What a shock that was for us.
We have absoultely no other debt and are not in financial distress, but
saw bankruptcy as our only option.

Like other vicitms, we too have very similar stories of making payments
only to be told we were somehow behind and owing more and more.

Again, thanks for your time in this matter and an update would be greatly
appreciated.

preditory lending practices used to ensnare unwitting borrowers

AUTHOR: Lisa - (U.S.A.)

In 1998 we borrowed against the equity in our home for improvements and refinanced in 2000 to complete the project. Our loan is currently being serviced by Ocwen FSB. After two attempts to forclose against us, which we avoided by borrowing against our 401k plan, we are now faced with fees in excess of $1200. These fees are being charged by Litton Loan Servicing for foreclosure proceedings and were added to our payment schedule after Litton Loan Servicing, LLP transferred the loan to Ocwen FSB. We are unable to pay the fees and are currently making the monthly mortgage payments only on a simple interest loan. Because of the nature of our terms, greater than 70% of our monthly payments are applied to the interest only. After making payments since 2000 on the new loan, approximately 90% of our loan principle balance is still due.

Since I had been told by Ocwen service representatives that the fees charged are perfectly legal, I am alarmed to see a class action suit has been filed for aggressive lending practices. It is also alarming to know that Ocwen's goal appears to be possession of the home rather than servicing of the loans.

We have been grossly misled by all those involved in the lending process with regard to our loan. We are left with few options and are considering putting our home on the market in an attempt to gain some relief from a loan with terms impossible for us to manage.

It is my hope that this action against Ocwen will spark others like it to prevent homeowners like ourselves from being victimized.

Charging late fees.

AUTHOR: Cynthia - (U.S.A.)

I currently have a mortgage loan Ocwen Bank only because it was sold to them. In the beginning they were very nice and helpful. However, as time went by the started tacking on late fees, when I was not late. Increased the payment from my original payment. And, they also try to pressure me into going through them for home owner insurance, and that amount is also included in the "amount due" shown on my statement.

I tried to get a lower interest rate. I was told that I would have to refinance and in order for them to do that I would have to include all of my outstanding debts and pay them off, which of course would increase my loan instead of just refinaning the amount owed on my house.

When I call the automative system to make a payment by phone it will not allow any changes to the dollar amount. Therefore, if I am trying to make a payment because I did not get it in the mail on time, I have to pay the amount in the automative system (which includes the late fees) even though I am not late. That is extra money they are getting that is not owed to them.

I am not happy, nor pleased with Ocwen Bank.

Robin: Enough is ENOUGH! Have the last word!

AUTHOR: Kweku - (U.S.A.)

Robin:

I do not know what your agenda is. You have NEVER been an Ocwen victim (or a victim of any other mortgage fraud whatsoever). I took you (and about 3 other folk whom I "met" online) into my closest confidences. Aside from Marlene from Florida (who IS an Ocwen victim), I doubt that I took any other person so closely into my trust.

I do not know what has made you turn spiteful. I do not CARE any longer what has made you turn downright detestful. I think it is a crying SHAME that you are now using this forum to bash me so baselessly and deeply discourage other victims.

LISTEN UP, BECAUSE THIS IS BEGINNING TO IRK ME (if that was your secret agenda, then congrats, you succeeded in plucking my nerves): I have NEVER wavered from my determination to expose Ocwen and halt its piracy.

In Chicago (as I confidentially told you at the time), Judge Norgle told me to "sit down" when I sought to be heard AFTER my lawyers had spoken on my behalf, because it became clear that although I may have been an experienced class action lawyer and the driving force behind the class action up to that point, I had filed the Ocwen lawsuit as a PLAINTIFF and NOT as a LAWYER (although I am very much one), and my opposition to a quick settlement which would not be in the best interests of the class but which could enrich the class action lawyers and let Ocwen off the hook made me more or less a pariah to everyone there.

The Court record in Chicago makes clear the reasons we REJECTED being part of the Plaintiffs' Executive Committee (something lawyers FIGHT for, because being on the plaintiffs' leadership team means handsome compensation at the end of the day when there is a settlement).

IF you are disappointed because you misread the Hanson lawsuit's Civil RICO reference to mean that somehow we had slapped Ocwen with criminal charges, that is not my doing. What the FBI does (or does not do) with evidence of criminal wrongdoing forwarded to it by me, Marlene, and countess other victims is up to the FBI, OTS, HUD, IRS, FTC and other alphabet soup agencies, but do not paint a bogus portrait of me simply because perhaps I no longer have the time or desire to send you private emails day-by-day, or because your pet RICO charge may have been sidelined by the class action leadership which emerged out of Chicago after the MDL transfer.

NOTHING subtsantive has changed, as far as I KNOW, since we went to Chicago. The case is marking time there (as it did to some extent in Hartford) while the lawyers on both sides "talk". In due course, the rest of us victims will know what the outcome of those "discussions" is, and if anyone does NOT like it he or she is free (as in the Fairbanks case) to opt out, or appeal. You already have my private emails in which I spelled out what MY reaction would be if a settlement occurred that I perceived as not doing justice to the victims such as Shirley whose house was stolen from under her in Georgia, and what my recommendation would be in my posts at that time in this and other fora.

For you to have known specifically the myriad reasons for my silence and self-restraint on these boards because I kept you informed although I had no obligation, and then to ask publicly "is he [Kweku] dead? Is he sick?" etc., so as to create an impression that somehow I was hiding behind some facade was an almost unpardonable offense. Now, your response to Alice's post shows your true colors.

Giving credit where credit is due, you happened upon this cause and adopted it and posted helter-skleter, helping encourage the frazzled victims. However, you were NEVER aboard the victims' bus because you were never victimized by Ocwen or another mortgage servicing entity. Therefore, you had no ticket to ride my "imaginary" bus. You were NOT my co-pilot, so you cannot espouse from the great well of your profound knowledge that somehow I have turned a bus around and am misleading folk. That is an almost slanderous insult that I cannot let stand unanswered, even if it means breaking my pledge not to be baited into foolish distractions which in the end do nothing to benefit the real victims.

I am NOT God or a god. I am NOT the federal judge. I am NOT (officially, anyways) even one of the plaintiff's class counsel (as I made clear to almost every victim in the over 4,500 emails I had to write/reply to since July, 2002). I cannot, and will not, be the Miller or his son who carried their mule until it struggled and fell in the river simply because folk criticized the Miller for riding and resting while his poor son walked, then scolded the son for riding while his old man walked, then criticized them both for cruelly overburdening the donkey by mounting it at the same time, until profoundly embarrased, they decided to carry it instead to deflect criticism. I am NOt in this quest to win brownie points.

IF you are so prescient as to discern by osmosis that I have made a U-turn and am misleading folk, congratulations! I did NOT solicit Affidavits. What I have steadfastly stated in thousands of email replies to folk who find out about the Hanson lawsuit in the search engines is that IF folks elect to send me something, they MUST send it under oath, to thwart "fake victims" derailing our ability to prove the numerousity prong of a Federal Rule 23(a) class action, and to prevent Ocwen from deposing everyone whose emails we get (who would pay my cost of attending all those depostions nationwide, if we had not demanded affidavits to make such depositions futile?).

I have NOT ever told anyone that UNLESS they send an affidavit they cannot be part of the class. Indeed, I have taken pains to point out to many that UNLESS they send in stuff to help prove that we are numerous victims, we may never get a nationwide class certified. And to this day there has been no hearing on our class certification motions filed in January 2003, MEANING EVERYONE IS (contrary to what Donna insinuated) FREE TO FILE THEIR OWN CASE AND TRY TO GET IT CERTIFIED! And sending me an affidavit in no way disqualifies anyone from suing Ocwen directly or in their own class action (assuming they have the resources and energy to take on Ocwen while fending off foreclosure of their own home).

Have the LAST word, Robin, as my time is better invested focusing on work that benefits the real victims as opposed to responding to a never-ending cycle of ever-more pointless prevarications.

Mr. Hanson had a bus bound for the Land of Truth and Justice

AUTHOR: Robin - (U.S.A.)

Alice:

Mr. Hanson had a bus and wanted to make a trip. It was a really big bus, so he put out a call for riders on his bus. He said there would be no fare required of any rider and any and all could come with him.

He proposed a trip way up north to the Land of Truth and Justice. He said he was going there anyway and wanted many others to have the opportunity to go as well.He just wanted and needed company for this journey and folks could look at it as a chance to get away from some oppressive forces in their lives.

The bus got stalled out midway through its journey. There was road construction and the bus was required to take a detour. It almost became bogged down in a big mud puddle on the detour, but it made it safely past after all.

Suddenly, Mr. Hanson decided that he wanted to go to a different destination. He quietly turned the bus around and now is going straight south. That in itself is fine; after all, it is his bus.

He did not think it necessary to inform his passengers that they were all going in a new direction due to his own change of plans. His riders were no longer going to the original destination, but to a destination only he knows.

He has never asked any of his passengers yet if they want to continue this journey with him, but some of the riders have decided to leave the bus because they have studied the situation and do not like the direction the bus now travels in.

Mr. Hanson just keeps driving his bus in his own direction, never making a peep, just driving and driving, but he takes all of you with him.

His journey will eventually come to an end. Only the passengers on his bus will not find themselves in the Land of Truth and Justice. The end of this journey will be somewhere else. All the passengers will then be lost because they are going to find themselves someplace they did not expect to be.

Ask Mr. Hanson what happened to his suit right after the MDL sent it to Chicago. Then ask him what he did at that point. Then ask him why he did what he did.

Question the silence because there is often much truth to be found in the things NOT told. Things are not as they appear because the driver has changed course and simply failed to tell you. You all know about the detour, but do you know about the change in direction?

Quit sleeping on this bus and taking everything on faith. Ask some questions and make your own decisions as to whether you want to continue this journey.

You are not going where you think you are going in spite of any assurances to the contrary. The compass on this bus got broken a year ago!

Getting out of the class action against Ocwen Hell!

AUTHOR: Marlene - (U.S.A.)

Dear Mr. Hanson:

You know me well and know how much I have trusted you for almost 3 years already. I have always been absolutely honest with you. And I need to keep that very same level of honesty whenever I address you, in private or in public.

I can affirm that you have treated me ALWAYS with respect, consideration, and even affection. Reciprocity have prevailed, and older folks at this forum, my brother and sisters in misery, have seen how ardently I have always deffended you in your search for justice.

I personally acknowledge all the time and and family sacrifices you have offered to this case against Ocwen Federal Bank and its accomplices.

It is with an aching heart, that I decide to drop out of the class action against Ocwen Federal Bank, now in Chicago, Illinois. Only God knows how much I have endured at a personal level and how much I had encouraged my beautiful little lady, my mother, to wait for the final outcome of this case. It has been particularly difficult to maneuver our safety under the monster, and at the same time, deal with health problems and an old lady that might die any day soon due to her age and frailty.

I want to be able to tell my mother before she dies: "Madre, we got it! Smile, mother, because the criminals who lied to us in order to take from your arms the home you wanted for me and your grandchildren, are all in jail. Justice have been made, mother. You can experience peace now, mother, before you go to the Lord"

I always believed this case against Ocwen was a criminal case. I dont blame it on you, but I was wrong at believing it. I want you, please, to excuse my ignorance. I blame it on my ignorance.

I ask the folks, those that I have addressed in the past, asking them to be part of the class action if they ever felt Ocwen had a criminal conduct, to please, forgive me for that, if they can.

I want you, all, my dear Ocwen brothers and sisters, to forgive me. I dont know if you can do it. Many have aleady lost their homes (and their families). Many are in the process of having them stolen by the thief, Ocwen. Many more fight against this monstruos company, day and night, and cry, and loose hours of sleep, and productive work hours, have and are been lost, and their children have been disperssed, and their marriages broken, while I have been asking all to wait for the end of the class action results, based on a false belief. I need you all to forgive me, if you can.

If Ocwen victims can not forgive me, I guess that is the price I will need to pay for my ignorance.

I am embarrased and very saddened for your statements Mr. Hanson. Yet, the blame is on me. I will need to forgive myself,..the most difficult task.

I have always said Ocwen is a criminal. I am convinced the word Ocwen can not be pronounced without identifying all it represents: deceit, fraud, crime, lies, misery, horror, shame.

I have wait while the life I have to live is in "limbo", because Ocwen Federal Bank, and all its friends.

If the class action, now in Chicago, is not going to show that Ocwen is a crimianl, I simply find myself displaced by it. I am not a part of it, there is no place in it for me, because all claims I have against Ocwen are all CRIMINAL.

I wont sit at a table with those lives destroyers, evictors, thieves, corporate bandits of the worst class. After all, what the phrase "White Collar Crime" means? Does the word "crime"-in English- means "crime" all the time or sometimes only?

I will be sending you a new Affidavit stating that I want OUT of that class action. My little lady, seriously disturbed, will sign it too.

I am a principled human being. I might or not be homeless in the near future, but the day I die, I will die a PRICIPLED woman, nothing more, nothing less.

A civil action only deals with the corporations entities, their contracts and moneis, and I am a human being with God given rights. All Ocwen victims have the same God given rights I have as well. Not court need to stablish those rights. No FBI, no IRS, no DOJ, no HUD, no DOR, no FTC, no OTS, needs to declare those rights. Our Lord gave us all those rights at birth, and HE is the only want who has the authority/power to give them.

I am not so sorry about the FBI delay in their investigations. In my case, I gave them my proof, as I gave it to you, and still collecting more and more, for their information. It is not my fault that the FBI does not want to use that information to do justice. I dont need them to investigate anything for me. I used to believe they work for us, but I am finding out that I never understood their job description very well. May be the FBI, the IRS, and the despicable OTS duties, are to protect Ocwen and its friends interests. It is okay if that is their job description. I blame it on me I did not realize it before. Point being, a crime is a crime, a crime is a crime,....regardless of FBI acknowledgement of it or not.

Are we, Ocwen victims, at fault, just because the FBI is incompetent or malicious, or any other thing that prevents it from prosecuting the criminal corporations? NO, WE ARE NOT.

I wonder, Mr. Hanson, what the Oath of Office of Judge Charles R. Norgle Sr. reads? I am a woman of limited intelligence, and means. I dont have the intellectual ability to do proper research. So, I dont know what Judge Norgle's Oath read. But I do know that if his Oath has nothing to do with upholding and defending the constitution of the United States of America, WE THE PEOPLE can not expect justice from him.

I dont forget that for years I could place my head on my pillow every night, feeling somewhat protected and with my heart caressed by a feeling of hope and confidence. I owe that to you. I will always remember that. I will always remember that you had your giant share of misery because of this monster and took it upon yourself to fight if for all of us. I thank you for that, I always will.

But the moment to say Good Bye has arrived, at least for me. I want no part of that action class, because I dont fit in it.

You have always show concerned for me and for others. Please,do not worry about me, at least. The Lord, the Almighty Judge, the Uncompromised, The Just of Justs, is with me and with my Ocwen family.

He will lead the way. Tribulations are endured whenever we need too.

I wish you well, Sir, I wish you well.

"God is God"

I must have mistakenly made the leap that your case was pursuing some kind of criminal charges. Seems that there were some comments made here and there about Ocwen principals going to jail, but I probably dreamed that.

So I can safely assume that no one/no case can/will get remanded away from Chicago, there are no criminal charges and never were, and the whole thing tick-tocks into a civil (no one admits wrongdoing) settlement at some unknown point in the future?

As for sarcasm, how can you possibly think so? I simply used the word contained in the quote from a revered wise man: "gentleman". Has that word become a slur while I was not looking?

Just seeking information from someone who has failed to impart any for a long time. I guess I now have some answers.

Have a good, long and prosperous life, blessed with all that you deserve.

FINAL Comment . . . Until I have MEANINGFUL case update to report

AUTHOR: Kweku - (U.S.A.)

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there!

Point 1: Who EVER said CRIMINAL charges were contained in original Connecticut class action? CIVIL RICO (Racketeering) charges were included, but only governmental authorities can bring criminal charges in a court of law. What I shared with the whole wide world in posts was that information reflecting criminal misconduct, sent to me by at-the-time workers within Ocwen's Orlando facility, had been turned over to the FBI (with the hope, obviously, that criminal charges would result). As most informed folk know, the FBI typically does not make public statements about the existence or non-existence of criminal investigations, so that is where that lies. The class action complaint, avaliable via the CBS website, NEVER once mentioned criminal charges (those who have eyes to see, let them see).

Point 2: INFORMED folk know that once the MDL consolidates supposedly similar cases in one court for pretrial proceedings (meaning, for motion practice including motions to dismiss, discovery including depositions, and summary judgment hearings) the federal court to whom the matters are transferred typically will NOT render redundant the MDL consolidation order. The transferee court (in my first-hand experience as a lawyer who has litigated in a number of federal class actions arounf the USA, as well as based on my prolific research into other class actions nationwide) will not sever and remand ANY complaint which has class allegations back to its original forum, in advance of the completion of pretrial proceedings (which is why the cases almost always settle or get dismissed collectively once the MDL transfer occurs).

The transferee court MAY remand upon motion, cases which demonstrate that they are so DISSIMILAR that it would be unjust to lump them in with the MDL pack. For example, the Hanson complaint was against Ocwen and Moss Codilis and was grounded on about 18 claims, largely federal, such as Fair Debt Collection, Fair Credit Reporting, RICO, Fraud, Intentional and Neglicgent Infliction of Emotional Distress, Breach of Contract, Unfair Trade Practices, etc. Many of the other transferred cases also named either Ocwen and/or Moss Codilis, and invoked FDCPA or breach of contract.

IF somebody sued Ocwen in STATE court asserting on an INDIVIDUALIZED BASIS that Ocwen had illegally forclosed their home, or that Ocwen had violated a bankruptcy injunction, and Ocwen petitioned the MDL to transfer the case and the MDl did, then the Chicago Court might entertain a remand motion, because that claim is dissimilar to the claism in the consolidated cases.

It was precisely due to KNOWING in advance the risks of MDL consolidation, that my fight to oppose consolidation reached almost legendary proportions. We spoke against it in Jacksonville; our opposition to certain structures continued into Chicago. Judge Norgle ruled, and (as lawyers are expected to do) we said "thank you" and accepted the non-appealable, interlocutroy, orders.

So, PLEASE, for those who do not have the FACTS or are not fully informed on substantive and procedural law: refrain if you will from sacarstic discourses or the throwing of darts without knowing the facts. SHOW ME ONE CLASS ACTION COMPLAINT AGAINST OCWEN BASED ON FRAUDULENT LOAN SERVICING (as opposed to "my home and mine alone was foreclosed," etc.) WHICH HAS BEEN REMANDED SINCE BEING TRANSFERRED TO CHICAGO, AND I WILL ... you pick what you will have me do once you prove that. Seriously! Someone show me a successfully remanded federal-law-based class action case against Ocwen, and I shall sell you a real, live unicorn with wings!

Posting a confusing docket sheet which does not identify what the "Associated Cases" are about, and then insinuating that somehow a "gentleman's" (sacarstic words) silence is suspicious is a deep disservice both to the anxious victims and to the "gentleman" who had previously taken you into his closest confidence and shared with you information imparted directly to only a handful of other folk. It reminds me of one Shakespearan drama, where an unnamed Roman Emperor says in shock to an unnamed Roman Senator: "Et tu, Brutus?"

I will not engage in any further, futile, point-counter-point debates here. I have a right to my silence and I have never told anyone that I will individually save their house by marching into the sunset on a donkey tilting at windmills. I am NOT in this litigation to win brownie points, esle I would be constantly posting all over the Net to keep my name in the minds of readers.

I will not be baited into responding again unless I have breaking news to report to the victims who are starining for answers and to whom I have stated in private emails that they each have their own obligation to check with the Court in Chicago for updates, as I am one person, with time constraints, who is NOT being paid and who will likely not recoup the sums invested to date. My goal remains intact: to focus on Ocwen and not be distracted by non-facts. I have a life to live. Thank you.

Ah, the gentleman speaks!

AUTHOR: Robin - (U.S.A.)

I have waded through this extensive verbiage. There are a lot of words here, but no answers.

I am not going to dig through the mountains of posts from earlier times to remind you of what you once said. Everyone here knows it, and it would only be redundant.

Surely your lawyer can be persuaded to answer these two questions: Are there any plans to ever attempt to move the case back to CT? Does the Chicago action retain all of the original criminal charges that were in place in CT?

If the case has been altered substantially, the people involved need to know it in order to make an informed decision. YOU are the one who needs to inform them.

It is NOT right to leave all these people flapping in the wind like this while time passes. I cannot see how anything would be endangered by you giving some sort of a straight answer here. A simple "Yes" or "No" to either question would suffice.

Perhaps this quote will make things more clear:

"The gentleman holds justice to be of highest importance. If a gentleman has courage but neglects justice, he becomes insurgent. If an inferior man has courage but neglects justice, he becomes a thief."
~ Confucius (c. 551-c. 479 BC)

I have always thought of you as a gentleman.

Kweku Hanson Breaks Silence

AUTHOR: Kweku - (U.S.A.)

A very kind friend of mine sent me an email just the other day, with a link to "Donna's" post above and a query: "Kweku, have you seen this one?" Well, I had NOT, so I read it with dismay, then logged in, and read with diminishing disbelief Donna's post, and the subsequent post from my very own dear friend Robin.

I have posted elsewhere online (if I were to identify the link, this rebuttal might not get posted, per this website's policy) on this very subject, and I am exasperated to do so again. However, these posts constrain me to respond now:

Anyone who truly know me (and I was quite certain that I could count Robin among them), knows that I have NOT made ONE DIME off this Ocwen litigation (actually, I take that back: I received NOT MORE THAN $450 in donations from supporters, of whom Robin alone contributed more than half that amount). Conversely, I have spent over $45,000 out of pocket to duplicate the hundreds of affidavits and thousands of emails received from other Ocwen victims nationwide, who continue to groan and suffer under the oppression of Ocwen's pernicious piracy. I nearly wrecked my law practice (and livelihood) devoting thousands of hours to just obsessively fighting Ocwen.

I REJECTED personal settlement offers worth hundreds of thousands of dollars because, as I shared with selected victims, this would leave then on their own and holding the bag, and I would have singlehandedly benefitted from all their powerful, agonizing emails which have struck some degree of fear and concern in Ocwen's execs. Having NEVER been in this fight for self-profit (heck, I could have made TENS OF THOUSANDS in legal fees suing Ocwen on behalf of other victims, versus remaining on as lead plaintiff. For those who are uninformed: lead plaintiffs get a TOKEN bonus -- maybe $5,000 if they are lucky. Any intelligent critic who REALLY believes that I am in this fight for $5,000 or even $10,000, raise your hand!

We opposed sending the Ocwen cases out of Connecticut, because I correctly anticipated that once they left Connecticut, I could be sidelined, and could no longer influence the tempo and ferocity of the legal fight against Ocwen and its cohorts. Since we traveled to Chicago to OPPOSE a quick global settlement discussions proposed by Ocwen (these are all in the public records and transcripts), I have NOT been in the loop of information. All I known, like most of the other victims, is that "discussions" are ongoing.

As a LAWYER, I have to restrain myself, and NOT publicly disclose whatever confidential information may have been leaked to me. So I have encouraged other, recent, victims who have contacted me about this heart-wrenching larceny, that I am now effectively muzzled and rendered less potent, and that they must seek their own legal representation. I cannot (and am not right doing so right now) publicly advocate that every person duplicate our legal complaint which is widely available online and bring their own class action or individual lawsuit against Ocwen. If folk reach that conclusion on their own, all the better. What I have done is embed in my email replies to the dozens of victims who continue to email me weekly, URL links to Yahoo's OCN message boards; to RipOffReport.com, and to other Ocwen-related websites, etc.

I am also cautious and reticient about liberally posting, because a whole "Mother of all Lawsuits" againt another mortgage predator got tossed (and is now costing ME a bundle to singlehandedly appeal to the 2nd Circuit) precisely because my frequent postings at THIS and other websites were invoked by that predatory servicer as a reason to put that case on hold . . .

ANYONE, fiend, fRiend, or foe alike, who wishes to disparage me, can feel free --- this is a free society and I cherish the constitutional right to free expression as much as most folk. What I do not appreciate is folk posting disparaging, UNTRUE, uninformed comments about me.

Donna (assuming you are a true victim of Ocwen and not just some shill from among its employees in Florida), and anyone else who wants to join the "tar-and-feather" chorus: I am not thin-skinned, and can take any verbiage (true or false). However, just remember that the real target is Ocwen, and that the OFFICIAL FEDERAL COURT RECORDS make abundantly clear how eager [or not] I have been to get in bed with Ocwen. Don't take my word for it - check it out yourself, and then ASK: How many other victims of such a monolithic dragon as Ocwen would dare post their real full name; appear on national TV without face and voice disguised; and spend thousands of dollars to openly fight Ocwen? And you really think that I relish being lead counsel???????? Ha!

Where in the World is Kweku Hanson? Inquiring minds really want to know!

AUTHOR: Robin - (U.S.A.)

I see exactly where Donna is coming from in her post.

Mr. Hanson used this site and others to gather affidavits from many victims, possibly hundreds, while all the time assuring everyone that he held enough "ammo" to bring Ocwen down with criminal charges. (If you find that unbelievable, search this site for his posts)

The move to Chicago was an unforseen and unfortunate bump in the road. That move was not under Hanson's power to prevent.

Since that move about one year ago, Hanson has been very, very, VERY quiet. He is posting nowhere. No one seems to hear from him anymore. It is like he has faded away. There are no updates as to the status of this case anywhere.

Does anyone know that any criminal charges remain in this case? I am skeptical of that once the Big Law Firms got involved.

Studying the docket in Chicago, many Motions to Remand are appearing. Plaintiffs are taking these cases back into their own hands and back to their own states. There must be a reason for that.

As of my last check a couple of weeks ago, there is one Motion to Remand conspicuously absent....Hanson's. Hanson does have the power to at least try to take this case back into his own hands, yet he is not exercising that power.

One must wonder why this case languishes in Chicago without a peep from Hanson. The clock continues to tick and a settlement will be reached eventually.

Mr. Hanson evidently has chosen to stop posting anywhere about this matter. Why? Why is there no attempt to move the case back to CT and make sure that those criminal charges are still in place? What is he waiting for? Why is this formerly very outspoken lead plaintiff suddenly mute? Where are all those affidavits, where is all that personal information?

Draw your own conclusions from this. I am dismayed at what these facts seem to point to. I don't want to believe what this combination of actions (or inactions) says to me. I have fought it tooth and nail, but, folks, it ain't looking good. My instincts are screaming "FLEE". There are too many questions in my own mind about what is going on.

If I were a member of this suit, I would be attempting to withdraw from it. Right now, today. There is something terribly wrong in the turn this has taken...I fear it may lead many to a dead end.

I hope, I pray that I am wrong. The only person in the world who can quell the doubts chooses not to speak out.

What in the world does Mr. Kweku Hanson think that people must be thinking by now? Where, oh where is he? Is he dead or alive? Are his fingers broken? Is he ill?

Inquiring minds really want to know.

Come Clean all the way Kweku Hanson from Hartford, Connecticut

AUTHOR: Donna - (U.S.A.)

As another Ocwen ripoff-ee..I am having OTS go through my account with a fine tooth comb. Thank god I refinanced through Master Financial. I almost fainted when I saw that it only costs a mere $6 to make a payment online or with a human at Master Financial versus the $10 and $15, respectfully, with Ocwen. But here's what I want to say to Kweku as the Main Filer in the Class Action suit.

I KNOW that you will benefit greatly should your case win. The MAIN or should I say the Lead Filers aka first people who bring a Class Action suit make the Lions Share of the proceeds, as well as the Attorney. All those people who you asked to send in their affidavits will get a pitiful paltry sum, if they are lucky. You will get the vast majority for sure. The others sending in their affidavits I believe this will disqualify them for further future action against Ocwen. I refuse to enter this law suit for that reason.

Here's how I feel: If you do not share EQUALLY with all those other people that you have singlehandedly disqualified for their OWN lawsuits who have been harrassed just as equally if not more than you have been...then what could POSSIBLY make you any better than Ocwen, Kweku? I have to admit your little rally speech and 'Coming out Party' really made me sick to my stomach. Rallying all these people who have been burned and for what? To line your own pockets, that's what! Anybody who would want to dispute these facts with me please feel free...All I ask is that you wait til AFTER the court case is over...because that info will all be Public Record and you will see that I was right.

And if you don't believe what I have said, just ask Mr. Hanson. He has no choice but tell you. Like I said before, if you are truly FOR all these other people who were ripped off KWEKU, you should absolutely SHARE THE GAIN EQUALLY WITH ALL....Nothing more, nothing less!

As another Ocwen ripoff-ee..I am having OTS go through my account with a fine tooth comb. Thank god I refinanced through Master Financial. I almost fainted when I saw that it only costs a mere $6 to make a payment online or with a human at Master Financial versus the $10 and $15, respectfully, with Ocwen. But here's what I want to say to Kweku as the Main Filer in the Class Action suit.

I KNOW that you will benefit greatly should your case win. The MAIN or should I say the Lead Filers aka first people who bring a Class Action suit make the Lions Share of the proceeds, as well as the Attorney. All those people who you asked to send in their affidavits will get a pitiful paltry sum, if they are lucky. You will get the vast majority for sure. The others sending in their affidavits I believe this will disqualify them for further future action against Ocwen. I refuse to enter this law suit for that reason.

Here's how I feel: If you do not share EQUALLY with all those other people that you have singlehandedly disqualified for their OWN lawsuits who have been harrassed just as equally if not more than you have been...then what could POSSIBLY make you any better than Ocwen, Kweku? I have to admit your little rally speech and 'Coming out Party' really made me sick to my stomach. Rallying all these people who have been burned and for what? To line your own pockets, that's what! Anybody who would want to dispute these facts with me please feel free...All I ask is that you wait til AFTER the court case is over...because that info will all be Public Record and you will see that I was right.

And if you don't believe what I have said, just ask Mr. Hanson. He has no choice but tell you. Like I said before, if you are truly FOR all these other people who were ripped off KWEKU, you should absolutely SHARE THE GAIN EQUALLY WITH ALL....Nothing more, nothing less!

It isn't just mortgages that Ocwen is suspicious about... Others beware

AUTHOR: Lynn - (U.S.A.)

My husband is currently on the phone trying to determine the source of Ocwen's account that is in his name, and I am looking for a lawyer to contact regarding this. I thought I would share it here, since others looking up Ocwen to check them out will find this report like I did.

A month ago we received a call from Ocwen, requesting that my husband pay on an account that had been transfered to them. According to them, the account had originally been held by CitiBank and was a Visa card. My husband has never had a CitiBank Visa, so was confused.

I initially looked up Ocwen and found this, so I was alarmed. We looked up his credit report on Equifax to check out what it said. We found the apparent card, but that it was held by Midland and apparently sold. We then contacted CitiBank, giving them his name and social. They had no information on him, or even anything to show he had ever been a CitiBank customer.

We spoke with Ocwen again a few days ago, and my husband reported his findings. The rep that he spoke to said she would have to call CitiBank and did we have a phone number. He looked up a number and gave it to her. It was the same 800 number we used. Today the rep called and had the same conversation with my husband, again asking for a number for CitiBank. My husband was rather exasperated that they hadn't called the first time he gave the number. He was able, though, to get the account number that had been the CitiBank Visa account this time.

He called CitiBank again. They had no information on the account, only that it had been transfered by them to Midland. Calling Midland he found out that it had been transfered to Ocwen and that they now had information on the account. The rep at Midland gave him instructions on what to do to clear this account and have Ocwen close it, but reading this report I am worried that Ocwen may not do so, even if we are able to show definatively that the account was never his.

It's a long and drawn out story, and I hope that someone else seeing this report will realize that there are problems with Ocwen's collections practices in more than just mortgage loans.

Thank you,

They love to take your home and resale it

AUTHOR: Roland - (U.S.A.)

I was a Real Estate agent here in Maine and use to do BPO's for Ocwen. Their is one that sticks in my head is one in Sangerville,Maine when they almost had us selling the wrong house. They was so much in a rush to sell it that they didn't take time to really find out which house belong to them.I never even recieved my money for doing the BPO's for them which is close to 500.00 for doing five of them plus we would place it on the market as well.

Wondering where to locate an attorney in California against Ocwen

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

I am a loan officer and time after time, I run into people how have Ocwen as there mortgage carrier. They come to me begging me to help them get away from this horrible company. More than a few occations, I come accross an individual with a credit reporting and payment posting problem. I have a current customer that I am working to refinance and he is under the same situation. He has made most if not all his payments on time and regardless how early he sends in his payment, Ocwen reports it late, now they've put him into forecloser. I've done some research and it seems nationwide that Ocwen and their customers are having this problem of misapplying payments and reporting foreclosures premature without the facts straight. I'm sick of this companies servicing and companies alike.

We used to sell our loans to Ocwen to be serviced, but after complaint after complaint and non compliance, we withdrew our contract with Ocwen and we no longer sell our loans to Ocwen to service our loans. This company should not be in business. The line needs to be drawn.

My question is, where can I locate an attorney here in California, so I can refer clients to? Ocwen is obviously a preditory lender and they need to either change or go bankrupt. This all needs to stop. The Federal goverment needs to yank their licensing and they need to reimburse everyone that they have ripped off. To help my customer, I have referred him to a debt attorney in fact. They are a credit repair agency, but that to me isn't enough. Ocwen owes him some money for unjust late fees and suffering. He can't get credit at any institution without an outrageous interest rate. Why should he or anyone suffer for Ocwen's mistakes?

If anyone can offer me any information on a attorney that already has an ongoing case, that will be very helpful.

Tried to help many borrowers .. Ocwen working to shaft the borrowers

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

I am a private investor who has tried to help at least half a dozen OCWEN customers try to "cure" their loans and not lose their homes. The Moss, Codillis "loan resolution" specialists won't even return my calls. The only solution they offer these people is foresclosure or a short sale working with a Realtor. I have to believe that they are working to shaft the borrowers. Good luck with the lawsuit.

#71 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Ocwen told me when I worked there...

AUTHOR: Tricia - (U.S.A.)

that it is in their best interest to get the house from the account holder. They will be able to make more money selling it than to work with the people currently in the house. Apparently, they make side arrangements/ kickbacks with realtors.



After reading all of these stories, I believe that has to be on their unpublished mission statement because all of their efforts seem to be concentrated on getting consumers out of the house.



Maybe there is a gargantuan cover-up going on. I don't know for sure, but what I do know is that I'd rather be homeless then have to owe Ocwen a dime. They are beyond shady, they are heartless.

What's really going on... Ocwen management does not give the employees the means and facilities to accurately assist borrowers in the manner in which we should.

AUTHOR: Jillian - (U.S.A.)

Alright everyone, here are some tips on what really goes on at Ocwen. I have worked there several years (I still do), and I have worked in several different departments.



Ocwen management does not give the employees the means and facilities to accurately assist borrowers in the manner in which we should. For example those who work in the customer relations department only have a limited amount of time to assist the borrowers on the phone, then they are repremanded if they go beyond that timeframe. Employees are treated with disrespect and disregard in just about every aspect of our jobs. To Ocwen management we are mearly automatons to make monthly numbers high so mangement can receive a large yearly bonus. The accuracy of the task does not matter, numbers only. Unless, of course, a problem is elevated to a government agency. Only then does management care how accurate the work is.



And, in order to save money (no employee below management level knows why) Ocwen has moved many of the job functions to India. Upper management wanted cheap labor, and that is exactly what they got. It is rumored that these people make about $1.00 or $2.00 an hour, compared to Ocwen's American Employees, at anywhere from $9.00 upward. If you call the customer relations department and speak to someone with an accent so heavy that you can't understand what they are saying, you have reached India. And, it has come to our (employees below management levels)attention, that last year, when reporting to their investors, Ocwen management lied about the "India Project", saying that only about 20% of customer service functions were sent to India. It's more like 80%.



I apologize to all of you who have had to deal with Ocwen.



There are those of us who strive to do things the "right way". But, at Ocwen, Numbers is the name of the game, not accuracy.



So, keep up the good work in trying to make them accountable. Maybe one day soon, all of us will get to work one morning and the doors will be chained shut. Good Luck!!

OCWEN FELLOW VICTIMS, HOLD OUT HOPE YET! ..FBI is on Ocwen's tail.

AUTHOR: Kweku Hanson - (U.S.A.)

I am the lead plaintiff in the $1.5 BILLION class action lawsuit against Ocwen and Moss Codilis mentioned here.



I am breaking my silence to leave some words of encouragement. Fellow Ocwen victims, please take heart. All your countless Affidavits and records showing that you indeed have been ripped-off have not just gathered dust on my lawyers' shelves.



We have had delays not off our doing in this lawsuit during the past eight months. We are now confronted with a discovery schedule that does not give us enough time to depose all of Ocwen's folk we are prepared to question under oath.



However, the numerous Affidavits many of you have sent in, and the FAITH many of you have kept even as Ocwen was breaking down your doors and taking or trying to take your homes and health, and even us Ocwen was bombarding me with computer viruses, trojan and stealth programs and other garbage, is going to bear fruition.



It is time for us to counterattack. My lawyers are polishing their JDAM missiles to strike back (if you will excuse the war analogy). Very soon, we will sock it to these folk, who daily monitor this website with apprehension in their hearts. I have stated here many times that the FBI is on Ocwen's tail. Believe it guys, even if you see nothing yet. I have stated that my lawyers have compiled enough proof so that no matter who tries, we will get it before a federal jury sooner or later, and in a class action lawsuit.



2003 is going to be the year of victory for Ocwen's victims. You read it here first!

No info received from Ocwen when they bought our loan from Rebublic Bank

AUTHOR: Malina - (U.S.A.)

I realize that in the past I have not paid attention to personal finance like I should have. When Republic Bank sold our loan to Ocwen several years ago, we never got a letter from Ocwen stating that they were now servicing my loan, all we received was a statement! Should we have received a new contract from them? I can look at this situation now and see that the payoff amount on this loan really isn't declining as rapidly as I thought. Can they have changed terms and not notified us? I do know that when I have called them with questions (except for one time when I got someone who was actually pleasant knowledgable and helpful), no one seems able to help me or I have to call a different phone number altogether. Why give me a number I can't use? It does also seem odd that it takes so long for a check to arrive (10 days???!!?) before it gets posted to my account. I will be going back through all of my records now and checking everything to see that we weren't charged fees that we should not have been. Thankfully, we are almost finished with Ocwen, but maybe my information will be of help to someone else down the line.

Run To The Media And See WHO Gets Exposed

AUTHOR: Elizabeth - (U.S.A.)

Since you are so brave to threaten to run to the connections claim you have within the media, but not sign your even your first name as other Ocron employees have, PLEASE do all of us VICTIMS (not supporters) a favor and go to the them and let's get this on the airwaves. Let's see WHO is exposed and for what. You may not get what you wished for.



You talk credibility, here's some I'd like to see. How about an actual contract with OcRon stating that they hold the mortgage on my home? That's right. They BOUGHT my mortgage from HUD in March, 1996. To this day, I have not received any papers proving there was a legal transfer of the mortgage. Could that be why when OcRon forced me in Chapter 13 to keep from foreclosure, they fought it for 14 months? The whole time they fought it, they were gladly still accepting my monthly payments. Yet I don't even know for a fact that they DO hold my mortgage.



Another one of your fellow CREDIBLE OcRon employees stated above that you should read our closing statements carefully. Well, I did when I bought the house originally. But that became null and void when HUD took over assignment in 1994. It took them 6 months to accept it, already putting me in arrears. When HUD sold my mortgage, I was given Ocron's name and phone number. That was it. Not a word from OcRon. I had to contact them so my first payment wasn't late. I think almost 6 years is FAR past the 60 days the law allows for them to contact me with notification and the papers to sign. All I've ever signed are forbearance agreements EVERY SIX MONTHS.



Then lets talk about how credible it is to charge $90 in legal fees for a "late payment notification" that was NOT from Moss, Codilis, but on OcRon stationery, signed from their "Performing Loan Department" and signed by NO ONE. I could wallpaper a room with them from payments that were "lost in the mail" or posted weeks after they were sent. It seems funny that any payments I DON'T send certified, return receipt requested manage to get lost.



This is really credible. For 5 years, OcRon sent me "substitute" 1098s to show the amount of interest and property taxes paid. But on their very own web site, it shows that they understated the interest to the IRS the first year and never reported the amount for the next 4. Last year I received a REAL 1098 only because I reported the correct amount of interest paid in 2000. Can you say "tax evasion"? The amount of interest they show paid on that fabulous site shows they paid more in interest to the IRS than they claim I paid. How odd. Good thing they put a disclaimer that they don't guarantee the information on the sight and that it's open for personal interpretation. Then why have it if the information is unreliable?



I could right a book about OcRon's non-credibility. But the last one is OcRon breaking not only Federal Banking Laws, but their own SOPs when there is a hazard claim. By law and their SOPs, the house was to be inspected before the work began, when the work was 60% complete, and when the house was finished. They gave $30,000 of insurance money sent to them, signed by myself and a contractor that has the same moral fiber as your bosses, without ever ONCE having my home inspected. They have reports from the inspectors that OcRon contracts with that they never had access to the house and couldn't see in windows that had newspapers covering them. They used the falsified form from the contractor used as proof the work was done and I was satisfied. Funny, I don't remember ever being notified of one single inspection date. After the last $10,000 was sent to the contractor, that was the last I saw of the contractor and the money that was to pay the sub-contractors. I called OcRon, and they gave me different stories from it being my fault, to it was such a small amount to hold ($10,000 is small?), to he harassed us so bad we sent it to him to leave use alone. He disappeared and we later were served papers that he filed for bankruptcy.



Well, how about your supposed media friends meet with a real investigative reporter for one of the 3 major networks that I know here and see who comes up with the "credible" information. With the many people I've seen on here from my neck of the woods, he'd get plenty. Can you say the same?



Hope you have a resume handy. By the way OcRon's stocks look and all the lawsuits against them, you'll probably be out of work soon.

Ocwen Federal Judge Sets Feb. 4th Court Hearing

AUTHOR: Kweku - (U.S.A.)

The federal judge hearing the putative nationwide class action lawsuit against Ocwen last week set February 4th (Tuesday) for an in-court hearing on my motion to for that judge to disqualify himself, based on the fact that he used to work for the same law firm representing the sixteen Moss Codilis defendants in the Ocwen lawsuit, and this information was not disclosed to the Plaintiffs by either the Judge or Moss Codilis lawyers.



While it is unusual for a judge to call a hearing on a motion for recusal (judges, in my thirteen years experience as a federal court litigator-attorney, and based on my lawyer's reserach, typically decide the motion on the papers), my lawyer and I are going to be in court in Hartford, Connecticut on February 4th to see what the Court decides to do on this issue.



All I know is that if the tabels were turned, Ocwen and Moss Codilis would never permit anyone who worked for my law office or my lawyer's law office in the past to sit on the jury or in any shape decide this case.



To all who have been praying for me and/or been otherwise supportive as I come under personal attack by the klpetomaniacs at Ocwen, thank you. I take it as a sign of desparation within Ocwen circles that despite all their muscle and despite having stolen our monies, they have still not been able to knock out our lawsuit. And I assure all of you, we turned over criminal evidence to the FBI in October last year. We got that evidence from persons working at Ocwen's Orlando Facility, some of whom still work there, despite aggressive efforts by Ocwen to find and fire them. Sign up for WebPacer at http://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/ and keep track of how this lawsuit is going on a daily basis.



Thank you again, Kweku Hanson

To The Spineless Ocwen Employee...

AUTHOR: David - (U.S.A.)

Pretty bold of you to hide behind a generic name like "Ocwen employee" and libel someone by claiming they write bad checks. I can only guess that you didn't give your name out because (1) you are a coward like any other low-level racketeering criminal and (2) Ocwen doesn't pay you enough to afford an attorney should you get sued for libel by Mr. Hanson.



If you had any backbone at all and truly wanted to help people and these customers, you would stop whoring yourself by thieving for this pseudo company -- and thus stop helping the Erbey Brothers get more money to throw more cocktail parties to buy off more whoring politicians -- turn all the evidence of wrongdoing over to the proper authorities, and a certain attorney you just libeled on here, and get yourself honest work. Otherwise you're just another mealy-mouthed, babbling idiot that's only aiding and abetting these con artists in screwing over your fellow Americans and adding to the sorry shape this country is already in.

To the Ocwen employee above

AUTHOR: Kweku Hanson - (U.S.A.)

You tried to post garbage about me to the RipOffReport website, huh? Bounced Checks from the Leader of the Pack? Thanks for the compliment of identifying me as Ocwen's Public Enemy Number One. All my original checks paid to Ocwen are in a vault in some bank closer to your headquarters than you probably imagined. Plus, my regular bank has electronic copies. Plus, my lawyers have hard copies. Try something more dirty, like spread a rumour that I am actually a sleeper-cell member of Al Qaeda or related to Saddam Hussein or something like that. But don't try something infantile like trying to sway the hundreds of irate victims of Ocwen. Guess what, whithout even knowing me, they sent me all their financial details and PROOF of THEIR canceled checks, Western Union Quick Collects, etc., to show how Ocwen was stealing their monies. They are waiting to come up to Hartford to testify against Ocwen. So no matter what rumours you plant on the web or in one-to-one phone calls about me, they know better. They have been raped by YOU GUYS, not me. They could care less if I never paid one cent of my mortgage. Get it? All they care about is that someone is trying to topple the theives at Ocwen!



Congrats! Ocwen knows darn well that my lawyers have the goods on it, and that WE SHALL WIN THE FIGHT BOTH IN THE CIVIL COURTS AND THE CRIMINAL COURTS AGAINST OCWEN. The FBI is hot on your tail; several Attorneys General are peeking over your walls. MANY of your employees have already squealed (and you know this) and we have ALREADY DISTRIBUTED THE PROOF OF YOUR CROOKEDNESS TO THE FBI and Connecticut State Police.



So keep plotting my ruin (but make sure you don't suffer the fate of Fastow and other white collar crooks while you are about it). Enjoy your dream digs while you can . . . . Judgement Day is coming for you.



And it does NOT help you to buy employee silence by threatening them with lawsuits if their names come up in our lawsuits. We will simply depose 50 employees in random order and keep you guessing which 25 of them are moles or informants. Or, we may even reveal the moles to you in the next two weeks. As my lead lawyer said to you in court: Ocwen will turn as red as a boiled lobster when it discovers how much DIRT its loyal, HIGH-RANKING employees sent to us.



You know I have NEVER EXAGGERATED to date in this lawsuit. I say what I mean and mean what I say. If I say there are moles alive and well, I mean exactly that. If I say they are high-ranking, i mean exactly that. If I say the FBI has ALL the info shared by the moles, I mean exactly that. If I say Lief Cabraser is going to sue you in an even bigger national class action shortly, I mean exactly that. You can buy or kill-off or scare away some of the people some of the time, but you cannot buy or kill-off or scare away ALL of the victims and law enforcement personnel ALL of the time. and that's the good thing about GOD, the one who frustrates Osama bin Laden's plans; the one who decides when even astronauts will live and die, and the one who decides when fat cats will have to be retired to a federal penitentiary.

Leader of the Pack has no Credibility

AUTHOR: Ocwen Employee - (U.S.A.)

As an employee of Ocwen Federal Bank, FSB, I along with all of the other employees try my very best day in and day out.



After reviewing the comments included within this report, I feel that the leader of this pack has absolutely no reason to file a civil action. When someone signs a mortgage note, they agree to pay back the funds that have been borrowed in a timely manner. This has not been the case with this individual. And like any company, when you are late you will receive phone calls and letter correspondence from the lender.



I do have to say that I don't agree with everything Ocwen does, but I am an employee that goes to work to make a substantial difference. I am a little disturbed that some lawyer that likes to send rubber checks tries to tarnish my company and it's reputation. Word of advise Mr. Hanson - if you don't want to pay your bills that you are under obligation to do so, then don't cry about it. I really hope that my company decides to counter-sue you for wasting a lot of people's time and energy. Save our time for people with legitimate issues, and I will be the first to admit there are a lot out there.



Now that I have seen this report, I will follow-up with the connections that I have within the media to see what kind of credibility that Mr. Hanson truly has. I think that a new report should be entered - Crooked Lawyers that like to rally individuals up and won't have any follow-through.

Ocwen case file papers to disqualify the judge, because (according to the papers publicaly filed in the federal court clerk's office) it turns out that the judge used to work for the law firm representing Moss Codilis, which constitutes 16 of the 20 defendants in the class action lawsuit."



No indication when the Judge will consider the motion, or if he will feel obligated to pass the motion on to another judge to decide. It will slow our case down briefly, but thereafter, whether the judge is forced to step aside or continues handling the case, the case will move forward quickly, as we have meticulously shown why there is no justification for the case to sit still as long as it has.

Ocwen Bank, working with the enemy, unprofessional, illegal activity, no regard for employees rip-off to their customers.

AUTHOR: carmen - ()

I became employed by ocwen on march 2001, and previously had experience in the banking industry I had never seen such an unprofessional management at Ocwen, since I first started working there I found that they are all about promises but never follow through, let me tell you my super experience with a supervisor from hell, I was constantly harassed by this supervisor in collection dept 30 plus you should know who she is they call her Lucifer that's how good she is and still is, this person had several complaints from employees, customers and other team leaders about her attitude and treatment to other people but upon until now she still works there and nobody has done anything about her she is very vicious person and like to create stories to hurt people, I am a single mom too and I was in her team too, and from the first time she saw me started giving a lot problems she never sat down to help me, or give me any advices about my work,



I let her know from the beginning that I didn't have nobody to take care of my kids when they were sick because their father didn't want to help, also she knew I had a lot of court days because of me ex-husband for mediation, she knew what I was going through her words were we will work on it as the time goes by don't worry about it I will help you, but she never kept her word, on march 2002 she called me at the office with another supervisor telling me that she is giving me a warning because I was talking unexcused days too much, every time I request days off she will give and then end up back fired on me, every time I will bring doctors excused and also will work extra hours to make up time she will say that's fine, in spite of everything she didn't care and gave it to me,



I know that she had favoritism with other people that came late every day and were never at their desk but she didn't do anything because we know she always went out with them to drink or dance, this very disgusting and very unprofessional, In may of 2002 a friend of mine told me that to watch out because she heard her supervisor talking with this person that to please fired me after being moved to her team, she was convincing her to fired me because of abscesses, but I concluded that she is retailing against me because in may of 2002 she called the manager of our collection dept 30 plus and her she didn't tell him what it was about, my manager ask me what happen I explain him everything about my situation with schedules, my children and the reason why, I previously went to him because she didn't want to moved a day to work for one hour for my kinder garden meeting teacher day and he knew what she was doing to me her excused was that she didn't want to lose her bonus this month, (talking about caring) she was very upset in may because everything backfired on her boss told me that was going to change my schedule, from 8:30 to 5:30 so I can go pick up my children, and no working weekends because of daycare also on Fridays work until 3:00pm I agree because I was very sad with the situation because she never took the time to help me instead was trying to get me fired.



He said that I was a good worker and he knew I had a good attitude towards my work, even though I was going through a lot, he said I am going to help you Carmen don't worry, and I worked for a month and a half with no problems and was always on time, but in June 10, 2002 my new supervisor influence by her called me to human resources to fired me because I used too many unexpected sick days, I didn't say anything because I was waiting for this since she was mad that her boss let her down by helping me, but that's not all after 3 months taking unemployment benefits now they are saying that I had a problem with misconduct which I don't understand they said that because of taking unexpected unplanned pto days but how sarcastic is this my last check that I received dated 6/21/02 had overtime paid 14.25 hrs and (PTO PAID 9.50 HRS) hello how stupid this people are didn't she said that I didn't have no more unplanned pto this people are a bunch of liars, the only person that is decent there is my ex-manager the only person that really care about my situation and I am very thankful for what he did for me and my children, now I am still unemployed trying to find a job but unfortunately companies are laying off instead of hiring them, now Ocwen wants to cancel my benefits because they can't pay all the employees that Ocwen keeps firing them, what really happens is that this company is moving to India by December and they want to save money, also they have so many law suits from customers because of there treatment and rip off practices they have over 1.5 billion in recovery, and that's why they want to save money by lying to the unemployment office and putting complaints about employees that work for them and want to get away with it because we are in Florida, no way Jos we have rights and any employee whose not working there or have had any situation similar or situation with Ocwen please contact me for a complaint with EEOC, and have them investigate and hopefully make them pay for pain and suffering that they have cause to our families.... thank you for your time, but I am very frustrated I know how the customers fell about Ocwen now and is true because I experience it on my own, (imagine you think that if they don't care about customers you think they care about employees, not really ))))

#84 Consumer Suggestion

That's criminal Ocwen

AUTHOR: marlene - ()

All you say sounds very familiar to me. The Bank of Hell is very predictable.



1. Never believe anything they tell you over the phone when they want to be "helpful". They are trained to lie and confuse you. They don't want to help you. THEY WANT YOUR HOUSE and YOUR MISERY.



2. Do not send them regular payments using regular mail. (They do not acknowledge it, is "mail fraud") Certified or Express mail will be posted later to make you look bad, if you are lucky and they post your payments. Use your bank "on line" service (pay your bank fee if needed, for your peace of mind)Ask your bank to send you copies of your promt payments to them, make copies of those payments and send them, religiously, to your Attorney General and other agencies you may respect.



3. Contact your local authorities dealing with taxes and or insurance. Write a letter to them (use Certified mail so you can keep a proof) and explain you are dealing with a predatory and abusive institution (Freedom of Speech and Abundant Proof). Ask them to let you know how are you standing in the payment of your taxes and/or Insurance. Get ready to make the payments yourself in case Ocwen does not do it. They miscalculate escrow accounts on purpose so they may pay the difference if they decide to pay your taxes. By doing this they will raise your monthly payments to compensate, expecting you not to be able to keep up with the higher payments. Or they might decide not to pay any taxes at all so they can take your house by surprise later on. So, best thing to do regarding this, go to your local authorities directly because Ocwen is not out there to protect the consumer, just the opposite. They want to hurt you big time.

3. Contact the IRS and tell them you are paying interest on your loan. Ocwen say they report to the IRS....But are you going to believe in these criminals?



4. Contact the 4 credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, TransUnion and Innovis. Write to them (use certified mail again) and send them proof of Ocwen's wrongdoing. You will have to wait 30 days and chances are Ocwen will not fix it (they got to be true to themselves). Then, write a Consumer's Statement for all bureaus making clear Ocwen refuses to correct their wrong reporting. I DID THAT. They want to destroy your credit so you declare bankrupcy, and you know the rest...So, keep the rest of your payments okay and on time (eat lettuce or rice only or get a second or third job if you need to). Their bad reporting about you got to be the only one bad in your entire credit reports.



File a complain with the FTC because they are violating your rights under the FCRA, send a copy to your local people, and to Washington.

5. Write to them and make copies of your letters for other decent institutions. Yo need witnesses!



6. Finally, it is perfectly SANE to feel and behave as a PARANOID with this company. Their crimes are real and the pain they can give you is also very real.

Good Luck.

we were notified that they had sold our loan and they did not want us to send any money

AUTHOR: Val & Lyla - ()

We refinanced our home with Ocwen Federal in Flordia. Before we paid our first morgage payment we were notified that they had sold our loan and they did not want us to send any money to them.



They told us to wait until we received a letter from the new lender, they also told us that we had 60 days before our first payment would be made.



Meanwhile we received a letter from the new lender who told us to wait 15 days from the date of the letter to contact them to find out where to send our payment. We did that, and when I finally reached them, after many calls and being on hold for indefinite periods, they told me that my first payment would be due in 10 days. I made that payment thinking it was my first payment.



Subsequently, within a month I received a "Demand Letter" telling me that I was two months behind on my payments and that they needed so much money, due in a month, or we could loose our home.



By that time I had already sent my second payment, which I told the person on the phone. Before they deposited that payment, which took two weeks, I received another "Demand Letter" with a date due of a month later than the first letter I had received. When I told them what Ocwen had told me about my first payment being due in 60 days they told me that the person at Ocwen had given me incorrect information. So, now I am waiting to see what my next payment and to them does to my account.



The other problem I have is that nobody can tell me if they are putting money in escrow for my taxes and insurance. The papers we signed say they should be but they tell me that there is a very small amount going into escrow, the amount being enough to cover the insurance only. How do I solve this problem?



Please respond with any guidance you can give me, my time is running out. By the way, they also reported to the credit bureau that I was two months behind before I even got the "Demand Letter". I know that because I attempted to refinance when they started giving me the run around and would not respond to my messages. Therefore, I was turned down on that refinance attempt.

Terminated with no cause

AUTHOR: Vanessa - ()

I started working for Ocwen Federal Bank in October of 2000 and became full time permanent employee by December 2000. I was having personal problems by the beginning of this year. By mid April I couldn't handle my situation anymore and I went to my doctor. I was told that I was suffering from depression and that I needed some time off from work because besides depression I was also under a lot of stress. I requested a leave of absence that will start by May 6th, 2002 for 6 weeks.



My doctor filled out all the paper work and stated that I should be out of work from May 8th until June 21st. Like I stated before I submitted all the paperwork to Human Resources in West Palm Beach by the beginning of May. First of all let me go back a little. When I received the paperwork for the leave of absence I forwarded one page to my supervisor that needed to be signed by the Collections Department Manager.



A few days later my supervisor comes to me and tell me that the Manager told her that he wasn't going to sign the paper and that I should resign and reapply. I assume that when she went to his office to take the paper that needed to be signed she told him something for him not to signed the paper (which is an acknowledge paper letting the manager know that a leave of absence was requested and the dates) is basically not asking for his permission.



When my supervisor told me this I told her that he couldn't do that because I wasn't asking for his permission and that it was up to Human Resources to approve or deny my request and I left it at that. I called Human Resources in West Palm Beach and told the person I talked to about this situation and the manager's paper not being signed and that it wasn't going to be included with all the paperwork.



She asked me who my supervisor was and the manager's name since he couldn't do that. I gave her all the information she asked for. May came and I went to work on May 7 and 8th. I then called again Human Resources because I didn't hear anything from them if the leave of absence was approved.



I already had some appointments on that week for myself & my kids. I was told by Human Resources in West Palm Beach that it wasn't approved yet but that if I could go to work and leave early or if I needed to be absent to call in.



I told them that I couldn't do that because that will jeopordize my position at Ocwen and being absent or leaving early will basically terminate my job.



I then was told to go ahead and take the leave and that I needed to call in every morning to report myself until the leave of absence was approved. I called in on May 9 and the 10th. On the 10th I called West Palm Beach and again I was told that it wasn't approved yet (I don't know why it was taking this long when they had all the paperwork and the doctor's note). I was told on May 10th not to worry and that they were going to speak to my supervisor in regards to my leave. I asked if I needed to keep calling in but I was told no since they were going to talk to Ocwen here in Orlando.



On May 13th I didn't call & I received a call from my supervisor telling me that I had 2 unexcuse absences & if I didn't show to work the following day I was going to be terminated. I explained to her that on Friday I talked to Human Resources in WPB and told her what I was told. She then turns around and tells me that she was told by the same person that I talked to that I needed to keep going to work until my leave was approved (Keep in mind that it was supposed to start on May 8th) because some paperwork needed to be approved by their attorney????? I told her in return that I will talk again with Human Resources and she caught me off (didn't like what I said) and hung up the phone. I then call the WPB office and was told by the same person that she didn't say anything about me going to work until the leave was approved and that she was going to call my supervisor.



Bottom line is that on June 7th I received a letter stating that my leave was approved and that I needed to report to work on June 13th. I reported my self to work on June 13th without a doctor's note because my appointment was for June 21st.



I told my supervisor this and the in return told me that it was fine to go to my appointment on the 21st and to bring my doctor's note since I couldn't work without it. I went to the doctor's on the 21st and got my note, when I got home I received a letter from Ocwen stating that I was terminated as of June 13th because of failure to report to work. I then called WPB office and spoke to Human Resources and explained what happened on June 13th & I was told to wait until Monday (Not to show up to work) until they were able to talk to the people here in Orlando.



I waited on Monday and finally at around 2:15pm I received a call from Human Resources in WPB that they were going to stick to the letter and to what the people in Orlando said.





I am a single mother with 3 kids and my supervisor knew this but because I wasn't one of her favorites she lied stating that I didn't showed up to work when I did and I also have witnesses.



This is telling you what kind of company is this that doesn't even follows the LAW!!!!!!!!!.

Forbearance Plans & ..Something you should always do when closing your loan.....read your closing documents.

AUTHOR: Bruce - ()

If you are behind on payments, most of the time Ocwen will offer a forbearance plan and some do work. What I found from working there is that some plans were not set up correctly.When a borrower would send payments, they could still go into foreclosure. Maybe the payments weren't enough or the downpayment wasn't enough. Borrowers even found themselves with a stack of late fees and atty fees, not to mention the interest.



If the borrower survived this ordeal and refinanced, the payoff statement was another diappointment. Here is where they find all the atty fees, late fees and interest piled up. This was sometimes compounded by the fact they had to wait up to 15 days to get the statement. Ocwen had to locate the closing documents to verify if there was a pre-payment penalty. Sometimes it would be in the vault, sometimes not. Sometimes we could get the docs from the prior servicer. Ocwen even had situations where a custodian (a place where the docs were stored for a servicer) did not know that some of the loans were sold.



Ocwen does not refinance anymore (there is a God), but they can extend the life of the loan. Of course, by doing that, they can change the terms of the agreement or call the loan in for full payment. Sometimes this happens with simple interest loans where there is a lot of interest that has not been paid during the original term of the loan.



Something you should always do when closing your loan.....read your closing documents. Don't let the closing agent tell you what's on the paper...read it. Especially, the mortgage and the note. The note will tell you about how you pay the loan back to the mortage company. The items in the note will be the same no matter what servicer you have. Even if you have had 5 servicers, it should stay the same. Please read them now!!! You might be surprised at what you find.

No Respect!

AUTHOR: Richard - ()

I have recently resigned from Ocwen as of Friday Aug. 16th. I would have quit 3 months ago but I couldn't find anything else. Please read on!



To give you some kind of idea how Ocwen treats people in general, let me tell you my story.



I was demoted from a supervisor in April for telling a borrower that Ocwen services sub-prime loans, the truth. It is public knowledge that they do and I have a copy of a press release to prove it. It is also on their web site ocwen.com. I tried to rebute the managers decision but all Human Resources would say is after further review they were sticking with their decision.



They also stated in the demotion that I was punishing the borrower from getting her Payoff Quote because of their policies. I simply told the borrower that because we handle so many sub-prime loans that we must do a lot of verifying of the collatoral documents, fees and other expenses such as legal fees. I told the borrower on several occassions in the taped conversation that it wasn't that she had a sub-prime loan but it was Ocwen's policy.



All in all my demotion was a personal endeavor of certain managers to get me out of Ocwen. They demoted a fellow supervisor four days prior and he decided to walk. I on the other hand went back to being an agent and proved myself time and time again that they were wrong in their decision. The first month but on the floor I received a certificate for the highest quality average out of the whole department of about 110 agents. I was also ranked as the number 2 agent for that month. Again, I have the proof.



I was looking for legal representation at that time but the attorney's office never returned my message so I dropped it. The stress was unbelieveable.



If there is any help that you can give me I would greatly appreciate it. I have quite a bit of documentation of the unfair and hostile environment that Ocwen had towards me.



Thank you for your time.

Ocwen and Hud Homes

AUTHOR: Hope - ()

FYI to people who have HUD homes that are serviced by OCWEN. Please do some research on what avenues are provided by the federal government to protect your home from foreclosure.



I believe that since 1998 the mortgage assignment program was eliminated and new federal regulations went into effect which establish the requirement that mortgagtees/servicers (in other words OCWEN) must provide forbearance prevention loan services to residential borrowers whose federally insured loans are in default.



These include:

Forbearance plans

Refinancing

Partial Claims ( HUD might pick up the tab for your deliquency at 0% interest on loans)

Modifications to the mtg (extending the payment terms out past the original date on the mtg)



Dealing with the government can be very confusing , but they do have plans for HUD homeowners. Hud no longer allows the mgt servicers to assign defaulted loans to HUD, but MUST offer loan mitigation services. I don't know if this applies to non HUD homes, but you can try.



So if OCWEN is threatening you with forclosure, and you have a HUD home...don't take it lying down..fight back!!! You have the law on your side.

Ocwen Listing Foreclosures on a 'Pay Site'

AUTHOR: Kate - ()

(DELETED-Current policy only allows government sites due to recent problems)



I was looking for HUD homes etc. on the web. I saw a lot of this Ocwen Federal FSB listed as the listing Agency.



I looked them up, ran a net search and WOW! What a crooked outfit.



The homes that are currently IN foreclosure are listed on this site. Someone needs to file for an emergency hearing and get a restraining order to put a hold on all such sales until this court case is ironed out. I'd ask for a binding order, nationwide to put a hold on all foreclosure action by this bank and it's holdings. Hurry hurry, this is awful - these people are being put out of their homes.



IF the judge involved feels there is merit to the case - without trying the facts, he can easily make a temporary restraining order.



Good luck to you all.

CONNECTICUT LAWSUIT UPDATE: October 11, 2002

AUTHOR: - ()

Today October 11, 2002, a federal judge in Hartford, Connecticut heard from lawyers for Ocwen and Moss, Codilis on the one hand, and a lawyer for Hanson (the person suing Ocwen in a class action) on the other hand. Based upon public court records, Ocwen asked for emergency permission to discover which employee or employees within Ocwen was revealing some of the problems to the Plaintiffs. The Court will decide the request sometime after Wednesday.



The Court also asked the parties to come up with proposals for a schedule of dates by which certain motions would be filed or argued. While those dates are being fleshed out, Hanson wishes to commend ALL who have sent in the over SIXTY SWORN STATEMENTS about the problems they have experienced with Ocwen, as well as all those who have promised in emails to send in theirs.



IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME UP FOR THE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION HEARING AND BE HEARD IN COURT BY THE JUDGE IN HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT regarding what you feel Ocwen (and/or its lawyers) has done to you, please send an email to Hanson (LEAGLTEK@MINDSPRING.COM) about your willingness to come up and testify in open court. Hanson will let you know once the date for a hearing has been set in stone, but guesses that this will be around mid-November (and before Thanksgiving, for sure). Also, for anyone interested in being considered for testifying at the Preliminary Injunction Hearing, please gather together ALL your records/documents/cancelled checks, etc., on Ocwen or Moss, Codilis and have them ready for bringing along with you.
