Stop Flagstar from kicking Barbara Campbell out of her home
Wheelchair-bound woman was tricked into thinking her mortgage could be modified - but the bank moved to evict.
Ms. Campbell was still home for the holidays, & is fighting to keep that home.
Ms. Campbell had been struck with cancer, kidney disease and heart surgery when she asked for a modification of the mortgage on her condo with Flagstar Bank. Then she suffered several strokes.
A woman who once ran Leadership programs for the Girl Scouts is now wheelchair-bound and desperately in need of a break, which she clearly qualifies for. Little did she know that Flagstar was being investigated for fraud and failing to provide modifications and eventually got fined heavily by the federal Consumer Finance Bureau.
It may have been to thwart investigators that Flagstar temporarily switched her loan to Nationstar, which told her to stop making mortgage payments while it applied for a modification with the federal mortgage company, Fannie Mae. Nationwide sent her a letter confirming that they'd applied for the modification, and said it wouldn't foreclose during the modification review.
But Barbara Campbell was suddenly foreclosed on anyhow. When Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence looked into it, Fannie Mae denied that it ever got her application.
Flagstar launched an investigation and again assured Ms. Campbell that she wouldn't be evicted from her condo. Then Flagstar turned around and moved to evict Ms. Campbell. The case went to court on in December, 2015.
Flagstone had promised the feds they'd stop abusing people applying for modifications, and Ms. Campbell asks for your support in pressuring them to stick to that promise and stop trying to throw her out of her home.
Please Call Flagstar Bank at 248-312-5400 and insist they stop demanding this cruel & fraudulent eviction.
Press prompt for Headquarters, and then request Tony Monte. Refer to Loan No. 0596526028.
Please also tell Fannie Mae, at 1-800-732-6643, that Flagstgar's deception should not cause Ms. Campbell to be evicted.
Home is at 1001 Covington Dr., unit #3, Detroit

Fannie Mae denies Perry family's right to keep mother's home
Help stop eviction of Camille from home she grew up in
Camille Perry has lived in the Inkster home owned by her mother since she was a child. Camille's mother had taken out a reverse mortgage, so when she passed away in 2014, the Perry family tried to work with the lender, Financial Freedom, to keep the home.
When someone who has a reverse mortgage passes away, the heirs have the legal right to buy the home at its market value. Camille Perry and her husband, Ben McLendon, want to stay, and have been trying to buy the home ever since their mother passed away.
Bank & Fannie Mae play hardball, refuse to let family buy back their home
Financial Freedom and the government-controlled mortgage investment giant Fannie Mae refused them their rights, rejecting their paperwork as inadequate, getting re-appraisals that jacked up the home's value, and foreclosing without the Perry family even knowing about it.
Perry & her husband can get financing to buy their home at the original market value, but Fannie Mae is instead demanding around FIVE TIMES that amount.
Now Fannie Mae is trying to evict the Camille and her husband.
Fannie Mae can get taxpayer money for evicting
Reverse mortgage loans are insured by the federal government. This means Fannie Mae will be paid in full with taxpayer money for the entire inflated amount it wants to charge, regardless of whether the Perry's can afford its price or get evicted. We will not stand by and let Fannie Mae carry out another cruel, pointless eviction of a family who is willing and able to buy back their home at a reasonable price.
CALL Call Fannie Mae - (312)368-6200, and (866)442-8572 and insist that they respect the Perry family's legal rights and let them purchase their home at the original affordable value.
The reverse mortgage was taken out by the Perrys' deceased mother, Betty Perry. FHA Case Number is 3000085492.
Home is at 3616 Farnum, Inkster, MI 48141.
