Welcome back right? It’s 2011! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that good stuff! The Worlds Laziest blog writer and amateur author has awakened once again. To my Dear Readers, (all three of you), I really can’t blame you for giving up on me. I mean, shit come on, how many times are we going to read this stuff which actually is nothing but apologies for not writing stuff? Anyway, I’m doing it again. So give me one more chance.

Why, you ask? Well, there has been a really fantastic development on the foreclosure front for Jayne and I. Just this last week, I finally received an e-mail from Citi mortgage telling me that we had been approved for loan modification! Well WTF? (I really don’t like using these abbreviations, but I did it this time for editorial effect) but it’s seriously been over a year since our application to have our loan agreement modified. In that time period, they made us re-apply three times and put us in a forbearance situation that ultimately resulted in foreclosure proceedings brought against us. The foreclosure thing mutated and had a life of its own. I’m actually a little disappointed that I won’t be part of the big statewide investigation that’s going on, into the fraudulent practices of these big legal offices here in the state. I’m pretty sure it’s destined to be a doozy. But, then again, we’ve seen plenty big shots get nothing more than a slap on the wrist and allowed to just wiggled back down into their holes.

Here’s a good one, another fine mess.

I’ve already sought counsel regarding the foreclosure and preparing for any heavy duty battles. It turns out, the attorney who is representing our lender is under investigation by the Florida Atty. Gen. after my attorney and the New York Times blew the whistle on him for forging signatures and manufacturing affidavits from the banks in order to push foreclosures through the courts. These people are trying to deny homeowners their mediation rights and filing foreclosure suits without properly serving the owners to let them know what’s going on. As is the case with my wife Jayne and me.
So, I’ll keep you posted, as well as with everyone else, on how this plays out. My sister’s production company Art & Industry has decided to do a documentary about our story to shed a little light on how the bank’s solutions to helping their customers aren’t very helpful at all.
