If a representative from a bank tells me that a sale date has

This answer was rated:

If a representative from a bank tells me that a sale date has been postponed on a foreclosure sale, but they were lying. Would I have recourse? I am referring to as high as they go at this bank and their escalation division. There is no one above this person. I have no real reason to think she lied, but it's been five days and the sale has not been postponed since she told me.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Bank officials cannot provide you with false information. I cannot believe that this happened.

What was the reason they stated the sale was postponed? Are you still prepared to file the TRO?

Hey Leslie. You and I were talking about this last week actually.


Sale date was postponed due to this bank not being able to draw docs due to a lien that had nothing to do with us. Escalation review team got it, called us Friday to tell us sale was cancelled while they dug more (sale date is next Monday).


I checked public records, it's not recorded online. Everything else up to eh 'published notice in local paper' is in there.

I remember talking to you. It was nothing short of miraculous to hear that you found a person to help you and postpone the sale. Too good to be true.

Hopefully you will file a consumer complaint for fraud against this bank as well as file the TRO.

This is Citibank?

That would be them.


I don't have a reason to not believe her. She is the head of the escalation division for them and deals with difficult loans like this one with cloudy title, etc...


I might be jumping the gun as far as this is concerned as maybe the attorneys just haven't gotten the request for cancellation to the Clerks office yet.


I know if Friday gets here, I'll have to pull the trigger one something last minute.


I have the conversation recorded. I used my office line which records every call in/out and announces it when the person answers... so proving it will be a cinch if it were to come to that (hopefully not).

If she lied you should consider filing complaints with The Office of Financial Regulation at
and the Attorney General of Florida at as well as filing for the TRO.

Let me know what happens.
