Disabled WWII and Korean War Veteran Faces Eviction, Freddie Mac Refuses to Return Calls

Bob Scott, holding the Flag in which he fought for. Shouldn’t she fight for him in return?

One of our fans made us aware of this situation, a WWII and Korean War Veteran, who had a stroke last year is facing eviction, along with his wife and disabled daughter. Mrs. Scott has tried to contact Freddie Mac to ask them to help her, but they will not return her calls.

“We don’t want a handout,” Sally Scott said from the porch of her Creve Coeur home. “We just want a fair deal, and we want someone to actually talk to us.”

Sally said she has never spoken to a representative from Freddie Mac over the phone or in person, even when they put her home into foreclosure several months ago

SBS who services their loan, said if they could talk Freddie Mac into rescinding the Foreclosure, they would work something out with the loan. Freddie Mac was bailed out by taxpayer dollars at over $120 billion! I think they owe it to this Veteran to give them a damn phone call!!

Here is the story from the local station in their area:

CREVE COEUR, MO (KTVI)– On September 11 as America remembers those who served, a local Korean War veteran who’s suffered a stroke faces eviction.
Bob Scott was an army engineer in Korea during the heaviest fighting between 1950 and 1952.
In 2007, he suffered a stroke. As his medical bills climbed the economy crashed. His furniture accessories business went bankrupt. About a year ago he and his wife were unable to make their mortgage payments.
“I worried. You can’t sleep at night. With my husband being disabled, you try to go on with things as normal as you can. And keep my husband and my daughter, who is mentally handicapped, as stable as can be,” said Sally Scott.
That stability vanished with an eviction notice from Freddie Mac, the giant home loan lender that was bailed out by taxpayers to the tune of $120 billion.
“I haven’t been able to get hold of Freddie Mac. And basically, SPS, the loan servicer, said if you can get Freddie Mac to rescind the foreclosure, we’ll work something out with them,” Sally stated.
FOX 2 also tried to contact Freddie Mac about the Scott’s foreclosure. No one got back to us. So Sally Scott turned to community groups to try and stop the foreclosure.
“Not only Freddie Mac, but other large banking institutions, I mean, they would not be around if it weren’t for our tax dollars,” said Zach Chasnoff with Missourians Organizing for Reform. “And you know, I think it’s important that they don’t take that for granted.”
So far, Freddie Mac won’t budge.
And now comes the court hearing. If the judge says no, Sally Scott, her mentally handicapped daughter, her disabled husband and his combat medals will all end up on the street.
And Sally and former Corporal Bob Scott fight on despite the odds.
The foreclosure hearing is at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The eviction itself could follow within a few weeks unless Freddie Mac agrees to stop the foreclosure and modify the Scott’s loan.

We have been told that the Foreclosure was postponed temporarily to give some time for an agreement to be had, but Freddie Mac has still not contacted the Scott’s back as of yet.

The following are contacts we have been provided that have refused to help these people.

The following Freddie Mac staff and attorneys have refused to negotiate on the case when approached by Sally Scott and her supporters:

* Donald H. Layton, CEO, +1 703-903-2000 (say “Donald Layton” to transfer call), Donald_Layton@freddiemac.com

* Brad German, Public Relations, +1 703-903-2437, Brad_German@freddiemac.com

* Patti Boerger, Media Relations, +1 703-903-2445, Patricia_Boerger@freddiemac.com

* Chad Wandler, Media Relations, +1 703-903-2446 or +1 571-236-2533 (cell), Chad_Wandler@FreddieMac.com

* Aaron Elking, Attorney at Martin, Leigh, Laws, & Fritzlen, in Kansas City, 314-862-5200 or 636-534-7600, ame@mllfpc.com

After their staff refused a loan modification approved by a HUD-certified counselor, Freddie Mac auctioned back to themselves the home of 65-year-old Sally Scott and her family in west St. Louis, Missouri.

Sally and Bob Scott purchased the one-story brick home 11 years ago and didn’t have problems with the bank until five years ago when a cerebral hemorrhage left Bob wheelchair-bound and with a feeding tube. Sally says she missed a few mortgage payments as she struggled to navigate Bob’s skyrocketing healthcare costs–something she was ashamed of until recently. Bob, 84, had owned a furniture store until the stroke and still receives an income from Social Security and Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

I don’t know about you, but I think Freddie Mac owes it to this War Vet, to call him or his wife and at least try and help them out!!! He gave us a fighting chance, and we owe it him to give him one!!!

Here is another story about this Foreclosure of Scott Family

 

 

We have spoken directly to Mrs. Scott, and this is what she sends us:

Dear Bulldog1, Thank you so much for thinking of us , I know if he could understand , he would be very proud  of your presence in supporting him & his family.
I could send u some news coverage from different media as some had inaccurate info,
Bob was a WWll Vet & a Korean vet , came with Malaria & was returned home.
I attached a picture of him just taken a few wks ago , he was a very patriotic fella,  Bob has been my sweetheart going on 36 yrs, he suffered a cerebral hemorrage stroke from being on warfarin , a blood thinner,  Bob  is 84 & I am 65, & we have a mentally handicaped child who adores her father & I could not take care if him if it wasn’t for her.
We had a family business, he ran one & I ran the other, so we had to close the one since he had a stroke, the economy went down, so everything spiraled downward,
I absolutely tried everywhere , the White House several times,  every org u could think of , I sent an email to Stardust,Communication Bernal , who I read his org.  saved a vet with his house,     Have we lost the American Dream etc
Well I received an email from him & he is an exceptional  caring human being, the only one that supported us & got us to this point, he had to persuade me to go this route which was very hard for me because I am a very private person.
I decided that I wanted to  do this to reach out &  help others, express to them not to be ashamed & seek a different org including the one that I contacted, it is shameful that u fight a war then u have to fight another war at home with Freddie Mac to save your house.
Court Outcome, Judge decided that we had to put up a  3 months Bond of $500 a month $1500 total to give us time to work out something with Freddie Mac, I  have not heard anything from Freddie Mac.
If it doesn’t work out, it really doesn’t matter , the important thing is we will be together no matter where  we live.
Sincerely  Bob, Sally & Susie Scott
We also contacted Freddie Mac ourselves, of course receiving this bottled response:

Dear Sir, Because this case is in litigation I am unable to comment on the specific allegations you cited.

That said, I want you to know that since the housing crisis began we have helped 5.9 million borrowers (including veterans and those on active duty) stay in their homes by refinancing, modifying, or temporarily forbearing their mortgages. Our company works with the military and our lender partners to help those who serve our country meet the housing challenges they may face here at home.  For example:
 

  • We recognize that Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders present military families with unique challenges in a tough housing market. That’s why Freddie Mac treats PCS orders as a financial hardship that can qualify borrowers for mortgage relief, including a loan modification or a short sale.

Best regards,
Brad

Well Brad, how about have someone get in touch with Mrs. Scott as no one will speak to her!
Remember, we are professionals, if you choose to contact Freddie Mac, be polite when you try to get your point across. The end result we want is for Mrs. Scott to get a phone call from Freddie Mac so she can try to save her home and not end up thrown out on the streets. Again, they are not looking for hand-outs, they just want a fighting chance!!!!
UPDATE:
Mrs. Scott just sent us these pictures of Mr. Scott and his shadow box:

Mr. Scotts daughter made this for him at Christmas.

 

 

UPDATE 1:

Mrs. Scott advises that she will be able to make the $1500.00 bond payment, but still no word from Freddie Mac.

She also wanted to tell you all this:

“We wanted to express our gratefulness for all of the support we have received, but it is not a surprise the brotherhood of the military goes very strong & deep.

Every morning Bob & I hold hands & say Thank you Lord for everything we have & this morning we said ,Thank you Lord for all of our wonderful military , keep & protect them in Gods care.”
UPDATE2:
A lot of our fans have requested to send a monetary gift to Mr. Scott and his family. We have created a page on gofundme for any monetary gifts you would like to send them. We set a pretty high goal, but I am sure she will be grateful for any gift we can send her. We will keep this up for about 20 days, and then we will send Mrs. Scott the gift. ALL FUNDS RECEIVED MINUS THE GOFUNDME FEES WILL BE SENT TO THE SCOTTS. WE WILL TAKE A PICTURE OF THE MONEY ORDER ONCE COMPLETED TO ENSURE EVERYONE KNOWS THIS. Here is the link if you wish to send a gift.
UPDATE:
In less then 8hrs we have already raised more than $2,000 in gift money for the Scotts.

 

UPDATE:

In less than four days we have reached our initial goal of $10,000! We will continue with the fund for the alloted time, as we are allowed to go over the goal, which we have already!!! Thanks to everyone who has helped either by donating, sharing, or contacting the people in this story. I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN!

UPDATE:
Mrs. Scott has sent us an update on the situation, and asks that we sign the attached petition. The outpouring of everyone’s generosity is overwhelming , but what is even greater is the support & caring that has been expressed to us.I wanted to give u an update we have been foreclosed on & our eviction hearing was September the 12th ( Freddie Mac owns the home & they were asking for the possession of the house) the judge granted us 90 days with a $1500 bond to let us try & get Freddie Mac to work with us, as of this date we have not heard from anyone with Freddie Mac.
Contacting the Freddie Mac people that were listed by email / signing the petition would greatly help to get them to work with us.
Sally

  1. This is exactly the reason why Freddie Mac and other banks should have gone under… Good job Mr.President for screwing another veteran…

      • This might not have nothing to do with Obama but the bailouts did (One of the only reasons this company is still around to begin with). Don’t call someone an idiot while making an ignorant comment yourself. Keep your hateful comments to yourself next time Eustace. We should be rallying behind this veteran instead of bickering amongst ourselves.

      • This is very relevent to the plight of Mr. Scott and his family. Obama gave them the bailout money. They got bonuses with that bailout money and you don`t see any Freddie Mac executives being booted out of their mansions or vacation homes. I`d like to know just how many of them served their country. I did, USMC, 1976-1980 and they at least owe him the courtesy and respect of a lousy phone call!!

      • Don’t blame our President! He does not control the CEO’s of these banks. Place your blame and hard feelings on the lack of empathy and selfishness of the CEO’s who are doing this John. This should NOT be happening to anyone. What does need to happen is a mass calling this selfish CEO by empathetic Americans who care about what is going on. I wish we had the name and number of said individual(s), because I would definitely call. Can someone find the name and number and post it?

        • I beg your pardon, but Freddie Mac is a GOVERNMENT controlled and FINANCED business. The Federal Government has pumped over $120 BILLION dollars into Freddie Mac to keep it solvent. Therefore, by orders signed DIRECTLY by Mr. Obama, this has EVERYTHING to do with him. Having said that, it doesn’t matter what nut-jobs are in the government, the fact is this man served his country honorably and deserves a damn phone call!! If it wasn’t for people like SGT. Scott and my 7 generations of family that have served this country (including my and my brother’s service during Desert Storm, myself in Afghanistan in 2004, my son in Afghanistan in 2009 and my nephew currently in Afghanistan), those idjits in Washington would have nothing to govern. I respect your right to voice your opinion, and will defend that right to my last dying breath. Hate the government all you want, NEVER disrespect a person who has donned a Service Uniform, and that includes (to me at least) all Fire Fighters, Police Officers, and EMS personnel.

          • Very well put Josh…I have a family of military as well including a son that’s been deployed to Afghanistan as well and people don’t realize what that does to families and to have a Veteran like this not even get the respect of a phone call is repulsive of Freddie Mac….it makes no sense when we have more empty houses than homeless and they and others would just as soon make one more family homeless than work with them to get their money….

          • Obama didn’t sign the “Bank Bailout,” he signed the “Auto Bailout” TARP (The bank bailout) was signed October 3 2008, Obama took office January 20th, 2009.

            Step off your pedestal and learn your facts. I don’t ever want to have to “defend” this president ever again, but we should at least get our facts straight.

          • Well said Josh! Thanks you and your family for your service. My parents both served as well as grandparents and great uncles. I completely agree with you and thank you as well for honoring those of us in public service. It, like the military, is an underpaid, underappreciated and ill understood group of professions.

        • REALLY? Lets see, he handed them the money without any type of plan in place on where that money was going. For any type of loan you have to specify what it’s gonna be used for. A rich freaken CEOs bonus is NOT the correct answer! Where I come from if you screw up your JOB so bad then you HAVE NO JOB! Lets give some money away to idiots that have run their company into the ground! Oh wait, he already did. All those so called green energy companies!

        • “Don’t blame our President! “??? He is supposed to be a leader, he and his cohorts were instrumental in where the stimulus money went and the strings attached to those funds. When the banks wanted to pay it back to the government they were told no. Don’t kid yourself, the government is running the banking industry. This is just another example of what “Hope & Change” is doing, and if Obama’s re-elected, will continue to do to the citizens of this country. As for blaming the CEO, that’s like blaming the POTUS because county code enforcement gave you a citation for not mowing your lawn.

    • It was the Republicans that were pushing so hard for the bank bailout, it was also because of them that it was a blank check with no strings which is why it failed to help the taxpayers. Thank you Ronald Reagan yet again for starting trickle down politics.

      The Democrats were pushing the auto bailout, which GM has already started to pay back. The Republicans wanted the auto industry to fail in order to break that union. Thanks for supporting the working class guys.

      • You are right about the auto industry. The unions are a major part of the problem in this country. I do think however that you are mistaken in the assumption that the ” republicans” wanted the bank bailout.

          • And citizens having enough of the abuse is the only way to combat Union Greed. And before you bash me, Yes I was in a union. I saw how it was. Take as much as you can and if they don’t give you everything you want, or don’t want to fund 100% of your retirement or healthcare then go on strike till you get it! The american dream bastardized by greed!!!

  2. freddie mac needs to get the financial version of getting fragged… there should be no way in hell a company should be able to pull this!

  3. Great photo! I’m sure the technical guys will point out the ASR and OSR are relatively new awards from the 80s, but he is without a doubt a hero.

    • Check the regs brother…AR 600-8-22 chapter 5 section 2 states (In regards to both the ASR & the OSR:

      “Effective 1 August 1981, all members of the active Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve in an active
      Reserve status are eligible for this award. The ribbon may be awarded retroactively to those personnel who were
      credited with a normal overseas tour completion before 1 August 1981 provided they had an active Army status as
      defined above on or after 1 August 1981.”

      That is what a technical guy will point out. Nothing at all suspect about Bob Scott’s shadow box. Thanks for playing.

      -B

  4. my heart goes out to you sir. sadly this happens to a lot of decorated vets. this could be any one of us one day and i think you should get a hold of your VFW and the USO.

  5. Its a sad story that is in evry banking institution.. I work in one of the top 5 banks. Try going to a program call ehlp.ita program to assist in keeping your home. Also see if the foreclosure attorney for that investor offfers anykind of repayment plan or assistance to keep the forclosure postponed. The other quickest way is to file bankruptcy a nd do a modification.I’m not a legal advisor but these are suggestions. Best of luck. Thank you for serving our country

  6. this is just wrong i don’t care who it is my brother was a disabled veteran and my heart breaks for this family …………..so just remember this story when u go to the polls to vote

  7. How sad the greedy forget those who fought so we all could be free. Freddie Mac would not be alive if it were not for people like Mr Scott. The Govt still speaks with a forked tongue, they only care about is money money money and not the people of this once great nation. I will pray to the Creator and ask his help for Mr. Scott and all the other people that need help. We all have a heart and brain, some people just do not use them the way the Creator want’s us to. There time will come to answer for there deeds. I hope everything will work out for the best for all involved. Brad German is a company puppet and so are the rest of them. It is so.

  8. How about Mrs. Scott’s congressional representative? Can S/He help light a fire here? I don’t know who exactly runs Freddie Mac today but if it’s at all federally regulated then a complaint to the local Congressman/woman will cause them to contact Freddie Mac and again, if Federally regulated they will jump real fast. I’ve seen it happen with sluggish army battalions!

  9. SBS should be the one they need to talk to and working with to rescind the sale. I work for BAC home-loans and the fact that SBS is telling them to contact Freddie mac is a cop out. The reason Freddie mac wont return the call is because SBS is suppose to be servicing this loan. My experience with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, is that they can be reasoned with and there should be options available if they can still afford the property, if there income is too low, then there may be no options available. This is truly a sad situation. On a side note, I would not file for bankruptcy, that will only put them further in the hole and will probably only delay the inevitable. There best option is to try to save as much money as possible during this time and try to increase there income for a government modification. I am interested to know if they were already considered for MHA/NHRP program. If they did not qualify and SBS could not work out a modification, then they may only have the option to try to reinstate the loan. I think if any legal action needs to take place, it has to be directed toward SBS if there is actual fault or negligence in servicing this loan, but I am willing to bet that all options may have been exhausted :-/

    • sence you jason G seem to understand the sistem could you call the family and see if you could be of some assistance if nothing elce possably a guyed

      • My Dear Tammy G,,
        I agree with you in spirit. Nice thought. I would like to gently advise you to please use Spellcheck, or have someone proofread your comments. No offense, but, obviously you didn’t pay very much attention in Grammar Class. Just sayin’……

  10. if 1500 is what it would take to help him keep his home then sign me up. I would put it up in a heartbeat if I know the rest will be taken care of. People like this deserve our support for what they have done for us unconditionally.

  11. If Freddie Mac can do this to one of our veterans and not even give them the courtecy of a phone call I think they should have to give the bail out money back and move out of the US and not be allowed to return

  12. Have the Scotts contacted local cities Veterans Trust Fund? Also the Fallen and wounded Soldiers fund may be of great assistance. .They may be able to get them the funds to completely take their mortgage out of foreclosure not just the 1500. Good luck and God bless!! Please keep us informed on the situation.

  13. Pingback: Can I keep my house if I file bankruptcy in Georgia?

  14. Until the matter with Freddie Mac gets resolved I strongly feel that even though Mrs. Scott does not want any hand outs or donations, we as veterans have an obligation to help this family. Some type of fundraising needs to be started to at least keep the foreclosure at bay until things are final. For example…. find out how much they still owe on their mortgage. Who knows, they may or may not depending on how long they’ve had the home owe that much left on it. I think Mrs. Scott would be more willing to accept help if it was coming from other veterans as a whole. I cannot afford much, but it can at least be a start!!!

    Bulldog1 I think if you created some type of paypal account for this where other veterans could donate to without involving all of the contact info formalities then this ball could get rolling.

    • And also make the account accessible to Mrs. Scott

      Hell, I wish I could win the mega lottery tomorrow. First thing I would do is find out what bank they go through and make an unknown deposit with enough money that she wouldn’t have to worry about any finances, and be able to live stress free and enjoy her time with her husband and daughter.

  15. Pingback: Tips And Hints On Fixing Your Finances To Avoid Bankruptcy

  16. I would suggest they file a complaint with the Department of Financial Institution as the mortgage industry has new strict guidelines regarding contacting borrowers that fall behind on their mortgage to offer other alternatives before seeking foreclosure. They can also list their complaint with the CFPB. Just some ideas for them if they haven’t tried this already.

  17. What the Scott family needs most right now is your calls and emails to Freddie Mac demanding that they rescind the foreclosure so that SPS can offer the family a loan modification. Thanks so much for all of your support!

  18. I have use my own money to help the people in need. i’m not rich and was raised to share what you have just last week I had to call our soup kitchen to let them know that I was unable to assisted them anymore because I was in need.I call an org and ask them for help with my rent until the end of month i would repay them back. After waiting serval hour the call came in. We cant help because you make too much money, I didn’t say You made too much money when I fought for this country/Freedom nor did Sgt Scott turn his back to Let you Died. Help this HERO

  19. Freddie Mac received billions for bailout money, and they cannot help this hero? Is he 100% disabled? If not he should be and needs to contact his local Purple Heart to get expedited processing. I am a disabled veteran that lost my house in the housing scandal, then last summer, my service dog was shot for fun….I know times are hard, but our military family will find a way to help you !! Thank you, Mr. Scott!!

  20. I wish I could contribute to them. But I will say I would be more than glad to contribute a nice Southwestern sized ass whippin to the people at Freddie Macs. They took money from every damn tax paying citizen in this country to save their company. They were good enough to take our money but now they are once again so far up on their pedestals and too good to call the people who bailed them out back. I really can’t stand white collared people. They get too damn big for their britches because of all the money they have and forget that they too are people.

  21. I hope this all works out for the veteran. However, in the spirit of accuracy, the article says he is a WW2 veteran, but if he is 84 years old, he would have been 17 years old at the end of WW2 in 1945. Additionally, the photo of his framed awards & decorations have a brass engraving listing his initial service dates as AUG 1946 – SEP 1948. As wrong as Freddie Mac may be in this situation and as a war vet myself, I think he is deserving of respect and consideration without well-meaning third parties embellishing his service record.

    • Jim, some of the dates may be wrong, but I assure you he served in both wars. The shadow box was put together by a family member and may have a few things wrong. But I would hardly call it embellishing.

        • Embellishing one’s military record isn’t some new trend. In the text of the article, his current age is listed in multiple places as 84 years old. His own wife says, “…Bob is 84 & I am 65.” I’ll assume Mrs Scott knows her husband’s current age. That would make him 17 years old at the end of the war in 1945. I also have a brass name plate on an award & decoration shadowbox and as a former soldier, I assured the dates were correct. before hanging it on my wall. Therefore, I am assuming that Mr Scott would not display his award & decoration momento if it were not correct. That being the case, he did not begin his initial enlistment until a year after the end of WW2. I am not slinging any mud at Mr Scott. I believe he served honorably for two enlistment periods, one after WW2 and one during the Korean War. I am merely pointing out that the author of this article is referring to Mr Scott as a WW2 veteran and the text and photographs in the article indicates otherwise. I also had family members who served in WW2, including two great uncles who landed at Normandy on D-Day with the 29th Infantry Division. Just as I as an Iraq War vet find it an insult when servicemembers claim to share my combat risk with me and my fellow combatants when they in fact did not, I feel that my two great uncles now long deceased should have someone insist on accuracy when claiming to have shared that risk with them. Again, I am not saying that Mr Scott is intentionally misleading anybody. I am saying that despite the headline by the author claiming Mr Scott is a WW2 vet, he does not appear to be a WW2 vet. I think that is an important distinction and I believe Mr Scott would agree.

          • I understand your concern, and trust me we know all to well about embellishing ones record, after all that is mainly what we do here. But I have seen his name in the rolls for WWII, and he also has medals he earned for that service..ie the WWI Victory Medal.

          • Harry S. Truman did not declare an end to hostilities until December 31, 1946. This is similar to the modern award of the National Defense Service Medal and Southwest Asia Service Medal during the “Cease Fire” campaign for Operation DESERT SHIELD/Operation DESERT STORM. Nothing suspect here. He put on the uniform before the end of hostilities.

          • Jim – Your head is obviously trying mto look where the sun don’t shine. My Father and my Father-in-law were both WWII Vets. My Dad got drafted at 19 in 1942, my FIL enlisted in November 45. WWII did not officially end until 31 Dec 46. Mr. (SGT) Scott is indeed, a real WWII Veteran. What’s YOUR story?? G.W. Dolloff, MSG, USA, (Ret). Ist Bn (Abn), 12th Cav, 1st Cav Dive, Vietnam 1966-67 and 14th Combat Avn Bn, Americal Div, 1970-71. (Also, former Army Reserve Fulltime Tech..I know what’was what back in the day.)

          • WORLD WAR II – Three eligible categories – European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign-Medal (7 Dec. 1941 to 8 Nov. 1945), Asiatic – Pacific Campaign Medal (7 Dec. 1941 to 2 Mar. 1946), or American Campaign Medal (7 Dec. 1941 to 2 Mar. 1946)

            Taken from US Dept of Veteran Affairs, so based on the his age and all else listed he did serve and qualify for a WWII victory medal.

    • Just to help with this one, my Grandfather joined up when he was 16 in WWII (1942). And there’s no embellishing the Japanese bullet still in his foot and the countless scars on his body and in his mind from years on the islands not only as a war fighter, but as a POW. He recently (two years ago) got his High School diploma. So don’t let the age trick you into thinking he couldn’t have been there.

  22. Sad! That people who have everything can not help somone who left all he loved in defense of our home! my the ranger god bless this man with the strenghth to go on. Plus this man fought his battle he did hia time we should fight for him. We owe it to this man amd many many like him

  23. As a member of the media, let me suggest that having a television reporter knocking on the local representative’s door for an interview might do wonders for getting the ball rolling. I don’t know what happened with the reporter whose story you’ve printed here; if they’ve moved on and left it “as is,” but if veterans in the Scotts’ home town approached a TV reporter with a friendly ear, they could get things going again. Vets there could even stage a small protest, which would draw all kinds of media. Just a suggestion to utilize all available resources!

  24. I’m not going to bed tonight until this man gets 5K! He was on guard long before I was born, so its at least the bare min. I can do for him. DONATE! SAPPERS LEAD THE WAY!

  26. I am fighting Freddy Mac myself. Please have the home “owner” sign a lease to rent the home to a close family friend. Make it for a dollar a month rent. Then refuse to pay the mortgage. Because of the “save our homes act” of 2008 and the protecting tenants at foreclosure act of 2009, Freddy then has to offer you three thousand to get out in one month or two thousand to get out in two months, but don’t take it, You can then continue to live there for the next year and maybe longer without paying anything except that dollar a month.
    I am told there are other ways to delay eviction also.
    When I moved out they refused to pay me by claiming I had left trash and debris.

    Local,(703) 903-2000 Or toll free 1(800)434-5401 Give them Hell they should not have been bailed out, greedy Banksters!

    • Then when they foreclose they put the property up for auction, then they also send a representative to bid with the banks money to inflate the value of the property and prevent the bank from taking a loss???
      We can’t do that at an auction, why can a bank?

  27. If I had the means, you would never have to worry about another mortgage payment. I am so sorry you are going through all of this. Please accept my sincerest thank you for your service. I hope and pray everything works out for you.

  29. President bush wanted the bail-outs… Not the majority of republicans. Check the votes that approved it. Almost every democrat voted for the bail-outs while the majority of Republicans voted against it. President Bush signed it into law. Then President-elect Obama requested that about 370 billion more be added to the bill. President Bush then in turn granted that request by having a provision put in the bill allowing Obama to have that money when he was swore in. So who’s to blame for the bail-outs? Both parties.

  30. Wicked people arguing politics on a page made to help a disabled veteran, his disabled daughter and his carer wife keep their home after tragic circumstances. Shame on you. You people have the opportunity to help someone less fortunate and deserving of help. Get to it and help.

  31. Here’s what Senator Crapo responded with, he did say that he is watching the situation, however, has limited options–Because of U.S. Senate rules, I cannot intervene in ongoing judicial proceedings. Nonetheless, I appreciate you sharing their story with me, and I share your concern about veterans and others losing their homes.

  32. Please communicate with the Scotts. They are attempting to work with you. It makes good business and moral sense to mediate and rectify as many cases as possible, thereby relieving our economy of further foreclosures and homeless citizens.

This is the least I can do, when I saw your story on my buddy’s Facebook I couldn’t believe what happened, but I will forward this to my wall to see if my other friends will help you out also witch I’m sure that they will. God bless you guys!

  35. I would be happy to audit this loan transaction for free. The sad part is that the loans were heavily insured and these bastards just want to collect on the insurances. If the loan is in a securitization the pass through rates to investors is less than 1%. They screw the homeowners, the insurers and the investors; the background is what is necessary to stop the thieves in their tracks. If this has not been resolved call me -Paula Rush 443-676-3509

  36. Place it between two slices of good quality rye.

    I finished it off with a morning shower. As I have
    been engaged for some time and I think they
    need to be aware of his or her hands, fingers or the edge of
    a deadly waterfall. After twenty years as an actress, an entrepreneur
    and the Global Brand. Having regular sensual massages could
    help improve the situation and correct your posture.
