In a last-minute move, Citi- Mortgage called off the foreclosure sale of a St. Louis Park house whose owner battled to stay in her home with the support of the Minnesota attorney general.
Nancy Gosselin was scheduled to lose her house in a sheriff’s auction scheduled for Tuesday, even though an investigation by the attorney general determined that at most, she had missed one payment of $584 more than two years ago.
After Gosselin was featured in a Whistleblower column on Nov. 13, CitiMortgage postponed the foreclosure for a month. Then, this week, Gosselin got the good news.
Mark my words, Someone is going to die from all the frustration these banks are causing and they are going to regret they ever fraudulently foreclosed on that person. If it hasn’t occurred already.
There are very ill people out there and this is going to cause a severe tragedy, for an unavoidable circumstance.
A banker says Nancy Gosselin made the mortgage payments on her St. Louis Park house, but CitiMortgage seems determined to foreclose.
Nancy Gosselin cannot understand why CitiMortgage is about to foreclose on her St. Louis Park house. Neither can her local banker or the Minnesota attorney general.
At the heart of the dispute is a single monthly payment of $584 that CitiMorgage says she failed to make more than two years ago, according to the attorney general’s office. Gosselin says she made all her payments. A loan officer at Bremer Bank agrees. The attorney general’s office, which says it can’t get a straight answer from CitiMortgage, has urged the mortgage giant to stop the foreclosure and work out a deal.
But the fallout from the alleged missed payment has been a series of cascading late fees and penalties and refused payments that has culminated in CitiMortgage’s threat to auction Gosselin’s home at a sheriff’s sale Dec. 2
“I did nothing wrong. This is very frustrating,” said Gosselin, standing on the sidewalk last week in front of her house on Xenwood Avenue S.
