Hello. My name is***** and I am going to assist you with your inquiry.

Expert:  MIAMILAW1127 replied 1 year ago.

Please help me understand why you believe the second mortgage was a scam? Did you never pull out a second mortgage on the property?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did have a revolving line of credit with city national bank. city national went out of business and signed off on my loan. since then many companies have bought that loan and sold it. I just heard a company named trinity bank has the loan and a company named SDS was the company who sold my home. I have never heard of either of these companies. I came home one day and a notice was attached to my door saying there was a foreclosure date on 11/4/15. there was no one to speak to only a number with a recording. I feel blindsided

is the $52.. on top of the $45.00?
Expert:  MIAMILAW1127 replied 1 year ago.

I'm very sorry to hear about all of this.

The issue is that, although City National went out of business, that did not extinguish your loan. The debt got sold/traded. It is possible that Trinity Bank filed a foreclosure action against you.

The only true options that you have at this point would be to file a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs and/or to file a federal lawsuit if you believe that nay fraudulent actions were taken on behalf of the foreclosing bank.

It seems to me that the lender bought the debt, foreclosed on the property for nonpayment, and sold the property at a foreclosure sale.

The site automatically asks if you would like to do a call. The $52 would be in addition to the amount you paid for the question.
