Banks could do this to anyone - used to be illegal to hold payments to make someone late... better hope a rich bank doesn't have his eye out on your property so he can buy it up with a sweet foreclosure price and get the cash ready to bid before it even gets taken... conflict of interest in the banking world - guess we all need to look out for one another - signed this - thanks for posting

Thank you for signing. God I feel sorry for these people. It's criminal, just plain criminal.

Well, I tried.

With petitions like these do you just accept that the little blurb on the bottom of the page is the truth? As bad as the banks are, I find it a lot more likely that in this economy, the family just stopped making payments on the house. I mean it happens all the time.

This story was reported in a newspaper, and has been clearly established as a case of false eviction.

I would sign it even if they coudn't make the payments, rather than see the money go to Goldman Sachs.

Fair enough. Personally, as evil as the banks are, I would still rather have the terms of a contract agreed on by both parties carried out. I mean if I stopped making payments on my own house I would expect the bank to take it too.

Well, if banks had confined themselves to ethical practices, I would agree with you. But I don't think they should be rewarded for engaging in unethical practices.

Ooh, a petition will really make things happen.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

It's one of many things that make things happen.

No need to thank me. This is why we are here. To unite in common cause. To take good direct action to help make a better world.
