While not presidential, the U. S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a Nevada FDCPA case, declaring in part:

The panel reversed the district court’s dismissal of an action brought against a debt collector under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The panel held that a debt collector cannot avoid liability under the FDCPA by obtaining the debtor’s lawsuit through a state court writ of execution.

The panel concluded that such a procedure frustrates the Act’s purpose and is thus conflict- preempted. The panel remanded the case for further proceedings.

To read the case, click here: Arrellano v Clark Co Coll Svc LLC et al, 9th App Cir No 16-15467 (Nov 17, 2017)


Sadly, too many U.S. District Court judges are quick to dismiss debtor claims.  They appear to treat these types of actions as if the debtor is trying to escape debt, which in many cases, is NOT the point.

The first point here is: The debt collector bought its own lawsuit from the Clark County, Nevada Sheriff for $250 in order to avoid the appearance of an FDCPA violation.

The second point here is: The debt collector cannot give the alleged debtor a 30-day notice to dispute the validity of the debt (or any portion thereof) while engaged in litigation that requires a 20-day response (answer).

See Ellis v. Solomon and Solomon, PC, 591 F. 3d 130 – Court of Appeals, 2nd Circuit 2010 – Google Schola (a Connecticut-originated debt collection case) for further clarification on the improper use of lawsuits).

In my opinion, the 9th Circuit did the right thing.

Three items just crossed my desk that you should be aware of:


Congressman David Trott (of the foreclosure mill law firm Trott & Trott) is “hot to Trott” this legislative session, again trying to proffer amendments to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to exempt attorneys from liability.  Here is a pdf downloadable copy of this scumbag’s bill (sponsored only by him): H.R. 1849 (FDCPA Amendments, 2017).

The language speaks for itself and you should be speaking out against it!   Call your Congressperson and Senator immediately and tell them NOT to support this bill.  This bill takes all of the fairness out of debt collection and once again attempts to make it easier for attorneys to break the law!


If you are facing Bank of America in court during your foreclosure proceeding, you should know that:

  1. Bank of America will likely produce a “robo-witness” to testify against you at trial.

This reporter has just learned from inside sources that Bank of America flies its designated key witnesses to Dallas, Texas to participate in “mock trials”, both jury and non-jury, to run its key “witnesses” through the proceedings to educate them as to what to say and how to say it in order to avoid scrutiny in cross examination.

2.  Bank of America has a “stable” of these “robo-witnesses” who spend little time looking at actual files (potentially the day before they give testimony, or the day of in some cases), working on actual case loads for a considerable length of time in order to gain the experience necessary to truthfully testify that they have actual, personal knowledge of the bank’s business records.

This reporter has further learned that witnesses are ostracized, punished and/or demoted or transferred to an administrative position within the BofA banking structure if they lose their credibility by failing to help outside counsel win their foreclosure case too many times.  Thus, it is reasonably certain that if Bank of America has a stable of whores who fabricate and embellish the truth on the witness stand, it is likely other banks are doing this too and the homeowner’s counsel should focus on the witnesses’ actual training, including time spent in front of a mock jury learning to adequately “testify” (which may have repercussions if they don’t adequately testify) to screw homeowners out of their homes!

Not only are the business records and the personal knowledge of them at risk as testimony, but the process by which these “employees” who do nothing but roam the country on a minute’s notice and do nothing but testify at trials in favor of Bank of America, should be impeached by further cross-examination and scrutiny of their real training … including, WHO trained them, HOW they were trained, HOW they are punished if they don’t “hold up” in court and WHERE they are trained.  These people cannot be believed and this is just one more reason homeowners need to have this information in their arsenal to “fight the good fight”.

NOTE: The people that attended last weekend’s Foreclosure Defense Workshop in Orlando, Florida know more than what you know.  If you didn’t attend, you didn’t find out about our new “secret tactical weapon” that will not only potentially “shut down” any foreclosure case, but force investigations by state bar associations all across the country of the parties responsible for furthering the fraud brought upon the courts across America in 99.9% of these cases! 

Knowledge is power!

Remember the saying, “My people perish for lack of knowledge”

Don’t be one of those people.  “Study to show thyself approved!”

God’s Blessings to you all!

and THIRD: 

Nationstar Mortgage LLC has changed its name to “Mr. Cooper”:


Mr. Cooper?  Seriously?  This sounds like the pedophile down the street.  It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood.

We are also learning that Select Portfolio Servicing has changed its name to “EXCELERAS”!   If you have received notice of this, please email it to me at







For those of you who need clarification on Ocwen Loan Servicing’s “financial position” and “mortgage servicing rights”, please pay close attention to WHAT Ocwen acquired from ResCap and why ResCap had to file Chapter 11.  Here’s the 11-page update:

Update on The CFPBs Enforcement Case against Ocwen Financial Corporation

You can also read (in the last paragraph of the Report) what the status is on the lawsuit filed by the CFPB.

For those of you that have been following my blog posts, also understand that ALL SERVICERS have to comply with REMIC rules if a REMIC is involved in your mortgage loan … that includes ADVANCES!  Please refer to my other article on Ocwen in The Pooling & Servicing Agreement: Why Just Eat Half The Enchilada? 

For those of you that need “clarification” on the duties of the Servicer, please pay close attention to the attachments in the referenced article … especially under the area of ADVANCES.  This might explain more of servicer fraud, as the servicer, by omission, commits fraud on the court by NOT admitting that it has to make your mortgage payments if you fail to do so, under the 424(b)(5) Prospectus regulations (shown in the article, by Ocwen’s own admission), coming into court in a foreclosure proceeding claiming that the investors it represents (the REMIC’s certificate holders) suffered harm, when in fact (PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE DISTRIBUTION DATES IN THE REMIC’S REGULATIONS), the investors have been getting paid all along, as long as the servicer is able to make the payments.  This is even more evident when you read the sentence in the Report issued by the CFPB (attached) which explains WHY ResCap filed bankruptcy!  Sorry, you actually should read the Report! 

You can learn to fight Servicer Fraud at our upcoming Foreclosure Defense Workshop … this weekend in Orlando, Florida!  Servicer Fraud is NOT just Ocwen … it’s all of them! 


There are still a few seats left!

We will be sharing information about the differences in “buying time” versus “full resolution” in your foreclosure case!

Dave Krieger Hosts City Spotlight Today! LIVE AT 2 PM!


Clouded Titles author Dave Krieger is the weekly show host of WKDW-FM’s “City Spotlight – Special Edition”, which customarily airs at 6:00 p.m. EDT on Friday.  Until the station fully upgrades its phone system, we will be presenting our broadcasts as pre-taped, with the exception of today.

Those of you in the WKDW-FM (97.5 mhz) listening area can hear the broadcast live at 2:00 p.m. EDT today.  We plan on having city and county officials on the program to update conditions in the area affected by Hurricane Irma and what is being done to bring everything back to normal.

The real treat for the regular Friday night listeners, is that we are going to “embellish” the live broadcast, which will be taped to run on the internet at (if the internet is back up and running by then), is the broadcast done live today, with some additional audio clips you will find to be hilarious and quite “stinging”, given Florida Governor Rick Scott’s messages of “If you don’t leave, you will die!”

This Op-Ed and informational show will be most informative and also critical of the way the news media, the National Hurricane Center and the Governor’s Office portrayed the storm.  No holds barred.  We’re taking aim at price gouging, including the retail markup of generators, which weren’t available BEFORE the hurricane, but all of sudden, they seem to be everywhere, marked up from what they were in price before the storm.

Widespread panic created by manipulated and hours-old information cannot and should not be tolerated.  That is what we are dealing with here …

You have to ask yourself, can TV weathermen and cub news reporters be trusted?  Really?   Tune in and find out how scathing we can be in our critique of the way things were handled … gas lines … traffic snarls … mass evacuations … power outages … gas shortages … and those black helicopters that keep flying at low altitude over my house (I’m not kidding here) … who do they belong to?
