Disgraced Foreclosure Lawyer Mark Stopa Has Twitter Tantrum

Disgraced Foreclosure Lawyer Psycho Mark Stopa Has Tantrum Over Criticism Of His Self-Published Book 

disbarred foreclosure lawyer

Disbarred and disgraced Florida foreclosure lawyer Mark Stopa has self-published a new book. Not only that, it appears he wants to start an astroturf “movement” around it. 

The book entitled “PeoplevMoney” is nothing more than an attempt by a delusional and narcissistic Stopa to repair his self-inflicted shattered image. Yes, Mark, I read your book. 

Apparently, his astroturf movement is nothing more than an extension of Stopa’s attempt to resuscitate the narcissistic image he has of himself as a midget white Jesus.

The disgraced foreclosure attorney wants to blame a corrupt judicial and political system for his downfall. Carol Asbury attempted to do the same thing before she was hauled off to the big house in 2011. Asbury and two others pleaded guilty to defrauding mortgage lenders in a multi-million dollar straw deal scam.

Loss Mitigation Services Accused Of Fraud By Feds

Federal Prosecutors Accuse Loss Mitigation Services Of Defrauding HUD, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac

loss mitigation services

The owners and co-founders of Loss Mitigation Services are accused of defrauding Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and HUD. Federal prosecutors allege the Massachusetts based short sale company defrauded government agencies on nearly 100 short sale transactions. 

Loss Mitigation Services negotiates with lenders and mortgage guarantors approval of short sales in lieu of foreclosure.

A short sale occurs when the mortgage debt on the home is greater than the sale price. As a result, the lender or mortgage owner agrees to take a loss on the transaction.

Prosecutors allege company founders Gabriel Tavarez and Jaime Mulvihill collected fees for acting on behalf of underwater homeowners.

Residential Foreclosure Rates Drop 20 Percent In 3rd Quarter Across USA

Attom Data Solutions Says Residential Foreclosure Rates Dropped 20% On Average. 

residential foreclosure rates

A new report from Attom Data Solutions indicates residential home foreclosure rates dropped 20% in the third quarter. The report shows the New York metro area, South Florida and Los Angeles all showed double-digit declines.

Attom says 143,105 properties had foreclosure filings from July through September of this year. This is down from nearly 172,000 over the same period last year. The numbers include default notices, scheduled auctions or bank repossessions. The reports also indicate foreclosure rates are at the lowest level since the second quarter of 2005.

Foreclosure reports from month to month can be volatile. However, the data could indicate the market is not at the level of distress it was prior to the last recession. It could also mean that despite numerous indicators showing a slowdown in the housing market, borrowers have yet to default on their payments.

Foreclosure Lawyer Mark Stopa Banned For Life From Practicing Law In Florida

Foreclosure lawyer Mark Stopa Has Been Kicked Out Of The Florida Bar

The Florida Supreme Court has permanently disbarred foreclosure lawyer Mark Stopa. Stopa was once among the state’s best-known foreclosure defense attorneys. The court ordered Stopa to pay $31,620 in costs related to the Florida Bar’s investigation of him for violating bar rules.

Stopa had been under indefinite suspension since last year for his “boorish’’ behavior toward judges. He also failed to tell clients about bank settlement offers and other professional misconduct. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement later raided his Tampa area office. They seized computers and records. They soon discovered he had acquired millions of dollars worth of property from some clients through a years-long pattern of fraud and deception.

Stopa, who claimed to have represented more than 7,000 homeowners facing foreclosure, sold his law practice, which subsequently declared bankruptcy. The Tampa Bay Times stated they could not reach Stopa for comment Monday.

Are Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers Lying To You?

Are Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers Lying To You About Foreclosures? Bankruptcy Does NOT Stop A Foreclosure!

Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers

Let’s be honest. Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers are business owners. They want your money. They will sing and dance the Jitterbug on their desk to convince you to give them your hard-earned cash. Matter of fact, there is little they won’t do for your money. 

Your bankruptcy lawyer is lying to you if they claim they can stop foreclosure with bankruptcy. This is not entirely true. A bankruptcy can only delay the foreclosure. This is because all a bankruptcy can do is extinguish the promissory note. It does not extinguish the mortgage which is the actual lien on your house. 

You could find yourself hiring a foreclosure attorney after wasting thousands of dollars on Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers. You could also find yourself with both a foreclosure and a bankruptcy on your credit report.

Most Westchester County Bankruptcy Lawyers also won’t explain to you that a bankruptcy stains your credit report for ten years.

A foreclosure only stays on your credit report for 7 years. You can also qualify for a new mortgage within 2-3 years after a foreclosure. As a result, negotiating a loan modification with a foreclosure attorney or walking away is a better strategy.

Queens Foreclosure Settlement Conferences

Queens Foreclosure Settlement Conferences Can Save Your Home

New York law requires mediation to assist borrowers to avoid foreclosure. Queens Foreclosure Settlement Conferences allow borrowers a face-to-face meeting with their lender. Homeowners can also benefit even if they can’t afford to keep their homes.

What Are Queens Foreclosure Settlement Conferences?

Queens Foreclosure Defense

Typical Queens foreclosure settlement conferences are a meeting between you and your lender. Additionally, the settlement conference provides an opportunity to work out a deal with your lender.

You and your lender try to negotiate a way for you to keep the home. You may also be able to negotiate a Cash-For-Keys deal or a Deed-In-Lieu of foreclosure. These two options are especially relevant if you have to give up the property. 

Potential outcomes of a settlement conference include:

  • loan modification, or
  • forbearance agreement, or
  • short sale, or
  • deed in lieu of foreclosure.
