Mortgage Mods and Foreclosures

A man called me this morning who had just been served with a foreclosure Petition.  He says that he has a mortgage modification agreement negotiated with Wells Fargo.  So, they sued him anyway.  Frankly, he may be right — and he may not be.  He wanted to know what he should do about filing an answer to the foreclosure.  I told him that the first thing he needed to do was send a letter to his Congressmen.  He didn’t know who they were.

I did explain to him how to file an Answer and told him twice that he needed to file it with the Court, and that meant take it to the Court Clerk’s office and then send a copy to the foreclosure attorneys.

Still, is it any wonder that we get the legislative responses that we do out of Washington when the people who call my office don’t even know who their Congressional representatives are?
