Lynn Szymoniak discusses fraud committed by banks to “prove” ownership of mortgages they are seeking to foreclose. The examples include dozens of examples of clearly different signatures by a factitious person, Linda Green, and assignments recorded with assignees named Bogus Bank etc. This second example, where the person preparing the document forgot to fully complete the document, demonstrates intent on the part of the bank to commit fraud.
Ms. Szymoniak, a Florida attorney, filed a whistle blower lawsuit to uncover mortgage fraud. Pursuant to the law she will be awarded $18 million in damages as part of the recent bank settlement.
