Checks sent to foreclosed homeowners are going un-cashed, another sign that the government’s national foreclosure settlement is falling short of its promised impact. 4.2 million checks have been distributed to foreclosed homeowners. The majority of those checks were just $300 each. A review by the Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) suggested that almost a quarter million Americans lost homes under false or illegal pretenses and that about 1.2 million borrowers had to defend against wrongful foreclosure acts.
The latest evidence revealed in June 2013 confirms the housing industry is continuing to prey on borrowers.
Authorities recorded approximately 60,000 official complaints in just six months about bank actions that violate the mortgage settlement back in June. In addition, Bank of America was caught using sales tactics in their solicitation mailers that are illegal. Individual horror stories about wrongful foreclosures continue to crop up across the country.
