Re: Massachusetts Register of Deeds Association Request for Meeting

Dear Register O’Donnell,

Thank you for your letter of July 8, 2011. We look forward to meeting with you and your fellow Registers on August 11th, to discuss your concerns regarding MERS, the filing of false or misleading documents with registries, and other matters.

As you are aware, we are currently investigating creditor misconduct in connection with unlawful foreclosures, including failure to establish the right to start a foreclosure as well as filing false or misleading documents with registries in the Commonwealth. We have focused particularly on creditors’ reliance on MERS and whether MERS conforms to the requirements of Massachusetts law, in the context of foreclosures and otherwise. In the next week, we plan to send civil investigative demands (CID) to Registers in order to gather critical information to our investigation, and appreciate your continuing cooperation in this process. If the Massachusetts Registers of Deeds Associations or any individual Registers have questions or concerns about the CIDs, they should contact Public Protection and Advocacy Deputy Bureau Chief Stephanie Kahn at 617-963-2986.

Many of your fellow Registers also have asked about the impact of our investigation on the ongoing federal-state negotiations with the large banks. We have made clear that Massachusetts will not sign on to any global agreement with the banks if it includes a comprehensive liability release regarding securitization and the MERS conduct. We strongly believe that these investigations must continue and responsible parties must be held accountable in order to fully protect homeowners and return to a healthy economy.

We look forward to continuing to work with you on these important matters.


Martha Coakley

    Wait until Martha C. and the other AGs find out that Florida’s AG is on the take, if you call Pam Bondi accepting thousands and thousands of dollars in campaign contributions directly from Lender Processing Services, its subsidiaries/affiliates, its in-house counsel, and members of its in-house counsel’s staff WHILE there’s an active, ongoing investigation into LPS – if you call that corruption, then there’s a player on the AG “team” who has another agenda entirely when it comes to a) a good faith investigation into foreclosure mills, affidavit mills, and fraud by banks, and b) settling with those same banks.
    If that’s not a textbook definition of corruption, I don’t know what is.
    Damn it, why does this have to happen in FLORIDA? The Attorney General’s raison d’etre is to fight for consumers against those who would rip us off. Florida is the epicenter of foreclosure fraud, and our AG should be in the VANGUARD of rooting it out and PROSECUTING the criminals, not taking bribes from the major players. Couple the campaign contribution revelation with the uncerimonious firing of the top two attorneys in the AG’s office who were doing such a good job investigating foreclosure fraud – well, the fix is in. All roads in this scandal do lead to LPS: I suppose Bondi was just heading them off at the pass.
    It’s disgusting.
    It’s WRONG.
    Floridians deserve better.
    Head’s up, Martha, and all you other ethical and honest Attorneys General, the Florida AG isn’t playing by your rules. If I was you, I’d kick her out of the game.
