Take Some Action
Like vultures, Wells Fargo waited.
The house that my mother, Marjorie Gibson, owned is the only home our family has had for over two generations. I know she wanted me to have the house to live in and take care of my grandchildren in because she left it to me in her will. But after I cremated her, while tears where not yet dried on our cheeks, Wells Fargo moved to foreclose on her house.
Wells Fargo claims to have spoken to my mother while she was on her deathbed. But I know she was too weak to talk because I was there, caring for her. They claimed they served her the Notice of Default but it was served three months after she had died. Now the bank refuses to acknowledge me as an executor of the estate and title holder of the house. They have refused to communicate with anyone other than my dead mother.
My name is Gail Leeks. I am 65 years old and I have no retirement and I am still working full-time to support myself, my children, and my grandchildren. This home is the only thing I have and without it I will be homeless.
My family is doing everything we can to keep this home. I am capable of paying the mortgage but the bank refuses to talk to me or give me any information, even though I've sent them document after document proving it. I even sent them a check for $5000 and they returned it to me with a letter saying that it was not enough -- but they will not tell me how much IS enough.
I’ve been trying to communicate with Wells Fargo for eight months. I’ve spent hours on the phone speaking with customer service representatives who won’t provide me with any information. All they can tell me is that they have received my documents and they are “reviewing” it. Despite my repeated calls, letters, emails and faxes, they still won't tell me how to save the house.
All I want is for Wells Fargo Bank to stop the foreclosure, give me information on how much more owed on the house, give me information on what I can do to make up the payments my mother missed while she was dying of cancer and give me information on what I can do to make sure this is the best loan I can get.

Not a prob. The mega monster Banks need to be cut off at the knees - they screwed the economy and they continue to screw the people.
Is this OWS? Am I in the wrong place? I mean, I thought this was the place to stand up to the bankers and stuff . . .
Now we see it. Signed.
