UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA

IN RE: CASE NO. 03-16518

MICHAEL L. JONES
DEBTOR

MICHAEL L. JONES
PLAINTIFF

VERSUS

WELLS FARGO HOME MORTGAGE, INC.
DEFENDANT

EXCERPT:

1. Wells Fargo applied payments first to fees and costs assessed on mortgage loans, then to outstanding principal, accrued interest, and escrowed costs. This application method was directly contrary to the terms of Jones’ note and mortgage, as well as, Wells Fargo’s standard form mortgages and notes. Those forms required the application of payments first to outstanding principal, accrued interest, and escrowed charges, then fees and costs. The improper application method resulted in an incorrect amortization of loans when fees or costs were assessed. The improper amortization resulted in the assessment of additional interest, default fees and costs against the loan. The evidence established the utilization of this application method for every mortgage loan in Wells Fargo’s portfolio.

2. Misapplication of payments received post petition resulted in incorrect amortization of Wells Fargo loans and threatened a debtor’s fresh start, as well as, discharge.

3. Application of post petition payments to new, undisclosed post petition fees or costs also threatened a debtor’s fresh start and discharge.

    Excellent! I have been searching the web for exactly this. Bank of America is doing the same thing in my bankruptcy, and they use the same software, as does Chase, Cap One and others. I know the software developer who wrote it. Btw, he quit that company.
