My husband and I are living in a motel because the bank foreclosed and then evicted us. The good news is that we've sued the bank and every entity and individual who ever touched our paperwork. We live in California, which is a nonjudicial foreclosure state, and so it's almost impossible to challenge a foreclosure until after the foreclosure takes place and the eviction process begins. For more information about me, please visit my Facebook page Bekker Foreclosure Friends (BFF). I've been mad as hell ever since I called Countrywide in December 2008, before we were ever late on our payments (we never made a late payment for the first two years after we bought our home). We do expect to prevail in our lawsuit, but in the meantime we're living in a motel. The good news is that the bank can't sell, rent or even show the home because we recorded a lis pendens; meanwhile our home sits empty.
It's about damn time that the OccupyWallStreet movement began. I've been telling people in California for over three years that everybody should stop complaining privately and DO SOMETHING.
I wish we could get something going in LA, but it is difficult to do because it's so hard to get around in LA because of the traffic, which is horrific, and the transit system is practically nonexistent. San Francisco is probably the best place for Californians to protest because it's more compact and easier to get in and out of.
