MOMENTUM BUILDS AGAINST FORECLOSURE FRAUD: Massachusetts Rejects Robo-Signed Documents As "Fraud Against Homeowners" - North Carolina Agrees
Massachusetts Register of Deeds John O’Brien is first in the nation to say no to accepting robo-signed documents; North Carolina agrees.
Some of us call it the rule of law. Imagine if someone attempted to reposess your car without proof that they owned the note. How is this any different?
O’Brien has 22 different variations of Linda Greena's signature and 5 different variations between Korell Harp and Linda Burton.
- “My Registry will not be a knowing participant in this fraud against homeowners. From today forward, lenders be on notice, the Southern Essex District Registry of Deeds will not record robo-signed documents.”
- “I find this practice very troubling on many levels. It has completely jaded my understanding that a notarized document was something that could be relied upon. If these documents are signed by anyone other than the noted signatories, these notaries and those that employed them should be held accountable for the fraudulent documents that they have produced and the havoc they have caused to chains of title everywhere.”
- “Knowing what I now know, it would be a dereliction of my duties as the keeper of the records to record these documents and any other documents that contain questionable signatures. To do so, would make me a willing participant in a continuing scheme which has corrupted the chain of title of thousands of Essex County property owners. I have decided to put a stop to this reckless behavior and hold these lenders and their agents accountable for the authenticity of what they are attempting to record in my Registry. I do not believe this to be unreasonable.”
