Bombshell- Substantiated Allegations of Foreclosure/Affidavit Fraud
That Implicates the Florida Attorney General’s Office
March 26th, 2010 · Matt Weidner Law dot com
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the attorneys at Ice
Legal may be the most aggressive and hard charging Foreclosure
Fraud Fighters in Florida. When this whole system comes crashing down
and when judges and the Florida Supreme Court put an end to the systemic
abuses of the court process being perpetrated by the foreclosure mills,
the attorneys at Ice Legal will rightly take their fair share of the
is a must read Motion along with a copy of a transcript from a hearing
held in a Volusia County Courtroom. The Motion lays out a very
disturbing set of allegations…
This is a foreclosure action filed by
WELLS FARGO BANK, NA (the “BANK”). The BANK is represented by Florida
Default Law Group, P.L. (“FDLG”). On behalf of the BANK in this case,
and on behalf of other clients in other cases, FDLG filed affidavits to
establish that the attorneys’ fees it was allegedly paid were
reasonable. The affidavits purport to have been executed by Lisa
Cullaro, the appointed expert on attorneys’ fees. The notary who
allegedly administered the expert’s oath and vouched for her signature
was Erin Cullaro, a former employee of FDLG and now an Assistant Attorney General in the
Economic Crimes Division of the Office of the Attorney General.
The public records request also revealed
that Ms. Cullaro completed a “Request for Approval of Dual Employment”
(From the Florida Attorney General’s Office) in which she certified that
her secondary job notarizing documents “does not create a conflict of
interest (as specified in Chapter 112, Part III, Florida Statutes) nor
the appearance of impropriety…” Ms. Cullaro’s dual employment was
limited to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 7:00 p.m. to 7:15
proffer that they will show affidavits executed on days other than those
approved by the Office of the Attorney General and that travel records
suggest that Ms. Cullaro would have not been present in Florida on the
date and time that an affidavit was notarized.
Focusing just on Erin Cullaro, the
sampling of her alleged signatures below, demonstrate remarkable
differences. And while, she proffers that she has abbreviated her
signature over the years, the sampling reveals that more than one
“abbreviated” signature has appeared over her signature line.
Indeed, if the signatures are fraudulent,
proof of the intent to defraud may well hinge on the fact that these
signatures were on documents used as summary judgment evidence in a
court of law.
In any event, not all the signatures in Defendants’ collection are from
affidavits. Obviously, Defendants should be permitted to inquire as to
the obvious differences in signatures purporting to be that of the
witnesses, regardless of where those signatures were made.
So the allegations made in this Motion are that Affidavits are being
submitted in courtrooms across the state and Ice Legal questions the
veracity of those affidavits.
- They have compared the alleged signatures and do not believe the
signatures were made by the person allegedly signing.
- They have compared dates and determined that the Affiant or Signer
was not in the state on the date of the alleged signing.
- An attorney who works in the Office of the Florida Attorney General
is executing documents that are being used to take homeowner’s homes
- Allegations of foreclosure fraud permeate the entire foreclosure
case file in the form of other questionable documents, affidavits and
And now the
bombshell….Florida Default Law is fighting like bloody hell not to have
these depositions taken….they’re filing Motion after Motion and have
made it quite clear that they have no intention of ever letting these
witnesses be sat for deposition.
What does it say about how deep
this rabbit hole goes when attorneys are refusing to answer any
questions relating to evidence they created and have filed in courtrooms
across the state?
What does it say when attorneys
are ignoring court orders to have their depositions taken after a judge
has heard their objections and found them without merit?
What does it say about how many
layers their are on this stinking onion when the Florida Attorney
General’s Office is implicated in allegations of fraud on the Courts of
Why isn’t the Florida Attorney
General’s Office doing more to protect citizens from foreclosure fraud
and foreclosure rescue fraud?
