Occupy Fights Foreclosures statement regarding
Judge Richard Honn decision to reinstate
Stephen Siringoringo license to practice law
in the State of California:
Los Angeles - 10/11/13 - It has just been reported that attorney Stephen L. Siringoringo, formerly deemed ineligible to practice law on July 26, 2013 by the California State Bar, has been reinstated by the California State Bar. He is once again eligible to practice law in the State of California.
The State Bar court judge Richard Honn wrote in his decision that Stephen Siringoringo’s conduct posed substantial harm to his clients or the public and has caused irreparable injury to the public. Judge Honn’s decision was based on mountains of evidence presented to him showing that Stephen Siringoringo had illegally charged unsuspecting homeowners up-front fees for loan modification services. Siringoringo has been accused of charging for files that were never completed or submitted to the banks and by defrauding unsuspecting homeowners by willingly and knowingly promising loan modifications to clients that were otherwise not eligible for modification. The judge is fully aware of hundreds of additional complaints to the State Bar and additional charges filed by the California State Bar against Stephen Siringoringo. Nevertheless, judge Richard Honn has decided, on an appeal, to reinstate his license.

WHAT: Stage four cancer patient and family evicted, after no notice, in violation of a court order, by Orange County Sheriffs. Sheriffs had earlier promised family they would take no action and refer case to the DA after family's attorney showed them the evidence of fabricated mortgage documents

ORANGE COUNTY SHERIFFS EVICT FAMILY OF STAGE FOUR CANCER PATIENT WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN VIOLATION OF A COURT ORDER -- LOCKOUT PROVIDES COVER FOR ATTORNEY TO ENTER HOUSE AND STEAL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS
Family has to re-home 6 pigmy goats.
Family was not allowed to get cancer medicines or medical documents related to chemo therapy.
Sheriffs had earlier promised the family they would take no action after seeing admissions in court of forging notes and bid-rigging and would refer case to the DA
ORANGE COUNTY, June 25, 2013— Orange County Sheriffs today evicted — without notice — the family of a stage four cancer patient with 6 pigmy goats in unincorporated Orange County near Orange, in violation of a court order.
Days earlier, the same sheriff who was carrying out the eviction, L De Ande, had promised the family no action would be taken, had acknowledged that the entire foreclosure was based on forgery, and had promised to investigate and refer the case to the DA.
The OC Sheriff's Special Investigations Unit, when contacted, confirmed that no eviction should have taken place because their investigation was not complete.
The lockout gave cover for the attorney for the foreclosing entity, Jennifer Needs — who created the assignment on the deed of trust and created the LLC that foreclosed on the house — to enter the house and remove boxes of original documents that the family were not able to store because the sheriffs gave no notice.
The family, Norman and Helen Koshak, has been hit with two major illnesses in the past few years — Norman is recovering from a brain tumor and Helen, owner of a knitting business who grew up on a farm in Michigan, is fighting stage four breast cancer. Because they are vulnerable with medical debt, the family was targeted by predatory "hard-money" lenders who pretended to give them a loan, then forged notes and broke property transfer laws to steal the property.
The family's attorney, Lenore Albert, has evidence that the entity that foreclosed on the property has no ties to the property, paid the auctioneer to rig bids, forged the note and was told how to forge balloon payment documents by PLM Lender Services, one of the largest loan servicing companies.

Institutional mortgage juggling leads to disabled Altadena woman’s eviction
Originally posted on Pasadena Weekley on June 5th, 2013
In spring 2003, Harolyn Rhue, then employed as an administrative assistant at Bank of America, was ready to sell her condo in Altadena. A rambling three-bedroom ranch-style home near the foothills was offered in a probate sale so Rhue made a $100,000 down payment and, though troubled by its terms, took a World Savings mortgage arranged by her broker for the balance.
But last week, around her tenth anniversary there and after several years of seeking loan modifications from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage — which absorbed World Savings’ assets when it acquired Wachovia Bank in 2008 — Rhue was kicked out of her home.
Harolyn rhue was wrongfully evicted on May 30, 2013 from her home by the Los Angeles Sheriffs Dept. They violated Harolyn’s bankrupcty stay and kicked this disable homeowner out to the streets.
