I have a question. I had a balance of approx. $82,000. on my

I have a question. I had a balance of approx. $82,000. on my mortgage. I had to go through bankruptcy due to a "cute little trick" that my mortgage company did to me in order not to lose my home. For three years I continued to make mortgage payments and trustee payments. I managed to get out of the bankruptcy, yet when I did they did not give me credit for all the payments I made on the mortgage during that three year period. Not only that, they added over $20,000.00+ to my mortgage after the first year I was out of the bankruptcy. Which made my total over $96,000. I discovered that during the whole three year period they were consistently adding fees and charges and my attorney seemed to be more concerned with what they wanted then with what was right for me. All the monies that I paid on the mortgage for that three + years was supposed to be subtracted from the balance of the loan, yet they never did! Do I have a case, and if so would a lawyer do it on contingency? I bought this home for $69,500., which was way more than it was worth. I very much was taken advantage of! Yet that was in 1998. I refinanced it once after the first year for $80,000. After 18 years it should be almost paid for, yet the mortgage co., at present, Ocwen Loan, has my balance a little over $82,000.??? I would appreciate any help and advice you can give me.Sincerely, ***** *****

I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant

I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant has been issued for my arrest for non payment of a loan they gave me 18 years ago. I dont remember them loaning me money at all. We shared an apartment, and he paid his share of the rent via check, so Im thinking he is using an old rent check as "proof" of a loan? Bottom line, IF there was such a loan 18 years ago, would an arrest warrant be issued?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: He said it was Fairfax Virginia. I havent lived there since 1986. He didnt say when the warrant was issuedJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: not that I can think of
