    Wells Fargo: Give Me My House Back!
    This is was my house. I was a victim of predatory lending and received a "pick-a-payment" loan. I fought for two years to save my home, but Wells Fargo played all their games to avoid giving me a modification. I hired an attorney from California to help me, but he was unable to postpone the foreclosure. My house was foreclosed on in October of 2011, and in August 2013 I was evicted. I want Wells Fargo to do the right thing and give me my house back.

    Wells Fargo: Keep Yolanda Andrews in her Home.
    For the past 3 years I have submitted one modification application after another, only to be given the runaround by Wells Fargo. My husband and I love our little dream home and we can afford to pay a mortgage, but Wells Fargo wants to drive us out into the streets. Help us save our home and stay in our community where we've lived for the past 12 years.

    Wells Fargo: Stop the Foreclosure & Approve The Vellanoweth's Request For A Loan Modification!
    In 2007 our family purchased our first home in the city of Whittier. Unfortunately, due to the financial housing crisis our home depreciate in value. We struggled for a while applying for a modification but were refused several times. In 2011, we refinanced our home using a HARP refinance which alleviated the pressure for a while, but it was not enough. In 2012, both my wife and myself were laid off from our jobs of twelve (12) years. We were both able to secure employment but struggling because our income was reduced by 50%. We applied for a modification again and were denied. Unfortunately, I was laid off for a second time and fell behind on payments. Wells Fargo has refused to modify our 2nd mortgage claiming that my income to debt ratio does not fall in their guidelines to modify my loan. Wells Fargo has a well-documented history of abusing customers seeking mortgage modifications, racial discrimination and peddling faulty mortgages that led to the financial crisis. Now a lawsuit has brought to light a 150 page manual used by the bank, that attorneys say provides a step by step instructions for Wells Fargo lawyer’s to fabricate documents in order to illegally foreclose on millions of homeowners.

    Wells Fargo reduce my Principal Balance
    When we were house shopping almost 20 years ago it took us 2 years to find the right house. When i walked in to see this house I new it was the house for us. It was the perfect house. My children each picked their owen room. The back yard had trees and we even decided where to build the tree house. The kids thought about having a lemonade stand and riding their bikes on the side walk. In this house many celebrations took place it has always been the place where family would meet. For Thanksgiving, Christmas ,Easter,Mother's Day, Father's Day, Birthday's, Sad and Happy day's. We have maintained the house and fixed it up threw the years. In 2001after suffering from back problems and a degenerated disc i underwent low back surgery. What was suppose to be 4-6 week recuperation it turned out to be failed back surgery and had to undergo more back surgery. As a result of that i lost my teaching position and had to go on disability and thats when all my hardship started. i had to fight and go to NACA to help me with a Refinance, Modification and now a Principal Reduction. I've done everything to keep my house. I've stayed over night at NACA events.I've cried many times just trying to figure out what to do next. I've suffered from anxiety, and panic attacks. Wells Fargo just seems not to care about us. What i had to go threw and they are still not helping with this situation. They put me on a 40 year term in 2010 and I've lived here 20 years that equals 60 years. When will this end? I'am upside down on the mortgage and they refuse to give me a principal reduction or accept the available funds from the hardest hit. One thing for sure i will not give up because this is not just a house This is my HOME that i intend to keep.

    Wells Fargo: Stop Foreclosures & Pay Us Back! (Morristown, NJ, not Palo Alto, CA)
    We have all heard that "a divided house will not stand," and I, a 62-year-old woman in distress, left struggling alone -- fighting Wells Fargo Bank's and its cohorts' corruption, can tell you that firsthand. When there is a land grab like the one today, unscrupulous, opportunistic people -- including your enemies, will play on any division in your family and create it to take your family's home. Many families are losing homes this way today. In 2001, my mother died without a will and her small -- estate has been pending ever since due to the aforementioned reasons. She had owned the home for fifty-seven (57) years. Immediately after her demise, family enemies instigated division in our family to force a court-ordered sale substantially below value. In fact, in February 2009, to expedite the sale, they tried -- unsuccessfully -- to get me committed to a hospital psychiatric ward to disempower me as co-administrator of the estate. When the court-ordered sale failed, they targeted a Wachovia Bank -- now Wells Fargo Bank mortgage and Personal Equity Line (PEL) loan, opened to repair the property for sale. Their intention was cause court battles to drain the equity in the estate, and they did, with the help of Wells Fargo Bank. However, this is also how I discovered the bank's fraud. In collusion with these enemies, Wells Fargo Bank allowed an estranged nephew being exploited by them to use what appears to be a fraudulent power of attorney to take the remaining equity in the PEL account. He has no interest in the estate or PEL account. My name is on the account and I am the only one who had ever paid the bill, yet Wells Fargo never gave me a courtesy call when the fraud occurred. Temporarily, Wells Fargo replaced the funds but then closed the account, at least to me! Without notifying me, Wells Fargo held a private meeting, gave the funds to my nephew again, then sent me the bill and pre-foreclosure notice! As a result, I am suing Wells Fargo in federal court (United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, Civil Case No.: 2:12-cv-01932-KM-MAH). My attorney took the case on contingency. Wells Fargo's foreclosure mill lawyer is unlawfully representing my nephew, causing the court to favor him and punish me! In fact, after Wells Fargo gave the funds to my nephew, he underhandedly purchased my late brother's home, taking it from his children. When my attorney deposed him, he asked him if he used the PEL funds to purchase the home, and my nephew told him that someone named Felix gave him the money. My attorney then asked for Felix's information so we could investigate the lead, but Wells Fargo's lawyer told my nephew he did not have to answer the questions. More than a year later, the court has still not impelled my nephew to answer the materially-relevant questions and has allowed him to commit perjury with impunity. As usual, Wells Fargo and its cohorts are making me the public scapegoat, falsely portraying me as a deadbeat who does not work, and who refused to rent an apartment which needs repairs. I had a well-paying job until my adversaries created a false charge to make me lose it, so I could not pay the bills. The people involved also interfere with tenants. Once, I had to have a lawyer send them a cease and desist letter. Despite its egregious misconduct, Wells Fargo refuses to settle my case. Instead, it is delaying it to wear me down by inflicting legal abuse upon me. Wells Fargo's and its cohorts' misconduct keeps me inundated with oppressive paperwork, and places me under considerable stress -- harming my health. Property is being vandalized to harm me too. My mother's home was in good standing and was not in danger of foreclosure, until Wells Fargo aided and abetted the people involved. Now, the property is in jeopardy, my good credit is destroyed and I am struggling alone to survive. I sent Wells Fargo a letter withdrawing a life insurance policy, but I never received a response. My case is important because it shows you the necessity of maintaining family unity when a family member dies intestate, and because it tells you how your enemies can use banks and courts to bully you, to take your family's home to humiliate, degrade and destroy you, and to make you homeless in retaliation for exercising your constitutional rights! Wells Fargo has a well-documented history of abusing customers seeking mortgage modifications, racial discrimination and peddling faulty mortgages that led to the financial crisis. Now a lawsuit has brought to light a 150 page manual used by the bank, that attorneys say provides a step by step instructions for Wells Fargo lawyer’s to fabricate documents in order to illegally foreclose on millions of homeowners.

    Wells Fargo: Keep Roxanna Zamora and her family in their home!
    My name is Roxanna Zamora. My husband and I bought our home in Whittier, CA in 1994 and have raised our two children, Rusty and Keilani there. Now Wells Fargo is trying to take the only home my children have ever known. In August of 2007, my husband and I made the difficult decision to end our marriage. I left our home, and shortly after that I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Over the next several months, I underwent two rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and aggressive radiation twice a day for four months. In February of 2008, I was awarded the house in a court judgement and returned to my home cancer free. Only then did I find out that my husband had stopped making mortgage payments and our loan was in default. I immediately contacted Wells Fargo to try and resolve the problem and see what I could do. I was met with a total lack of sympathy for my situation, and an unwillingness from Wells Fargo to work with me. After fighting for my life, and ended my marriage of 18 years, I was now the sole provider for my two children and our home. For years I have gotten the run-around from Wells Fargo trying to get a loan modification. I was approved for and completed several successful trial loan modifications, but Wells Fargo refused to make it permanent every time. I was told that in order to get approved, that I needed to present a divorce decree. Although my marriage had ended, my husband and I delayed filing for divorce while I was battling cancer so that I could remain on his health insurance plan. I tried to explain this to the bank, but they didn't care. They basically gave me a choice- my health insurance or my house. I chose the house because without it my children and I would have nowhere to go. Unfortunately things didn't end there. After the divorce, Wells Fargo still continued to drag me along and deny me for a modification for one reason or another. I've tried everything- I filed for bankruptcy, worked with NACA, applied for Keep My Home CA. Nothing seemed to work, and now Wells Fargo has scheduled a foreclosure sale for April 20th. I have been through years of mental abuse, stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and even had suicidal thoughts from dealing with Wells Fargo, but I'm not giving up now! I will not leave my house of 20 years. What I need is for Wells Fargo to give me a fresh start- a fair loan modification reduces my principal and interest, and removes the years of added fees and arrears that have accumulated while I've been in this fight. Wells Fargo has a well-documented history of abusing customers seeking mortgage modifications, racial discrimination and peddling faulty mortgages that led to the financial crisis. Now a lawsuit has brought to light a 150 page manual used by the bank, that attorneys say provides a step by step instructions for Wells Fargo lawyer’s to fabricate documents in order to illegally foreclose on millions of homeowners. Despite all this Wells Fargo will be celebrating its record as the country’s most profitable bank at its shareholders meeting on April 29th in San Antonio. Home Defenders like me are organizing to deliver a message that these predatory practices have to stop. Please sign my petition, and demand that Wells Fargo do the right thing for my family and all the others that are at risk of losing their homes.
