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.

"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.
"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.

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."
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.
