This article outlines Lynn Szymoniak’s filing of a whistleblower lawsuit beginning with her being sued by Deutche Bank for residential mortgage foreclosure, and ending with her being awarded $18 million dollars as part of the recent document fraud settlement with several banks.
Ms. Szymoniak is a lawyer with extensive experience investigating white-collar crime. It was, therefore, an easy transition for her to investigate mortgage document fraud. She became aware of the problem when it appeared in her own foreclosure case; the assignment of mortgage to the plaintiff was executed 4 months after suit was filed.
Regarding the above graphic of different signatures for Linda Green, this issue was discussed in the previois post on this blog discussing the deposition Cheryl Thomas.
