Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.

Creditors Meetings are conducted under oath.

Knowingly lying during a Creditors Meeting would be considered to be perjury, not fraud.

With me and Bank A. had hard proof that the house was clearly refinanced we also had the titile company.. now after 4 year they have come clean and state they missed placxe the wire tranfer which was over 200K..

Customer:

Long answere to a short question....

cfortunato :

If the mortgage company lied at the Creditors Meeting, you can sue the mortgage company for any damage that you sustained because of their lies - including the lies that were told before or after the Creditors Meeting.

cfortunato :

If there is enouge monetary damage involved, you should be able to find an attorney to handle this case on a contingency basis - so that there will be no upfront costs for you.

cfortunato :

You should call the Georgia Bar Association to ask for a recommendation for a "litigation" attorney.

cfortunato :

The number is:

cfortunato : (NNN) NNN-NNNN
Customer:

I forgot to tell you the funny thing they did at Thankgiving they sent a demmand notice ckaming that I owed them anther 35K and they wouold take the house

cfortunato :

That doesn't sound too funny. Hopefully the attorney you get from the Bar Association will prevent them from doing this again.
