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.
Is this what you wanted to know?
If it can be proven that they new they were making bad claims can we sue yes or no I am looking for councel that has some back bone and willing bto nput on a good fight....
What was the lie or lies?
Are you a creditor?
A mortgage company a very lkarge one after my bhouse was refinanced in 2008 came back and claimed that bit was noit paid off an the new lien holder and I could prove it via wire transfers bank to bankfor 4'5 years these people houndsed me threating to forclose so I entered bankruptcy to put them at bay.. while in chap 13 they came to court twice claiming they were due 4500 and then 3700 =more. 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..
Long answere to a short question....
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.
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.
You should call the Georgia Bar Association to ask for a recommendation for a "litigation" attorney.
The number is:
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
That doesn't sound too funny. Hopefully the attorney you get from the Bar Association will prevent them from doing this again.
