Facing foreclosure, homeowners allege lender fraud

August 23, 2010 12:00PM

Dennis and Joyce Brown were fighting a foreclosure suit by CitiMortgage; after a few months of legal battles, the couple hired an attorney to fight the foreclosure. Now, the Browns are alleging that CitiMortgage fabricated documents to foreclose their home after the bank failed to credit them for mortgage payments. CitiMortgage and its attorney, David Stern Law Offices, withdrew the case against the Browns, but now another lawyer representing the bank has sent them foreclosure letters. The alleged foreclosure fraud of Stern and other firms is being investigated by the state Attorney General’s office. Kenneth Trent, who is representing the Browns, has filed a suit against Stern’s firm in federal court as well. [Sun Sentinel]
