    Bank "Witnesses" don't know Jack: "Expert" Computer Screen Readers

    in Finance

    Investigator Bill Paatalo joins Charles Marshall to discuss bank employee weaknesses and lack of credibility in depositions and affidavits.
    Chase bank 'witnesses', and bank witnesses in general, know little about the loan in which they are deposed, beyond what the computer screen shows. Under oath, the bank employee will parrot information the bank's attorney coached them on prior to their deposition. If you are able to drill-down, it becomes obvious that the person 'with the most knowledge', knows nothing regarding the travel of the loan, assignments or current holder in due course. 
    Bank witnesses can provide a balance, the name of the servicer, and who claims to own the note; but know nothing about payment proceeds from insurance/settlements or when the note was endorsed or by who.  The bank employee relies on hearsay and and erroneous information on a screen to foreclose.
    Chase employee Rosemary Martin inundated the court with a ream of mortgage documents and statements that had the appearance of validity, but when placed under oath had no information relevant to the Plaintiff’s loan.  See Martin deposition here.  Even former in-house Chase counsel are oblivious in regards to the operations, documentation and validity of documents. 
    The loans are defective, and only the illusion keeps the ownership facade alive.

    Suze Orman

    in Finance

    It was at Borders Books on Chicago’s State Street where women and men were lined up literally around the corner to get a glimpse at the Money-Making Maven, Suze Orman. Signing autographs, smiling at strangers and shaking every hand that reached out to her made a successful book signing on The Road to Wealth.
    This book hit the New York Times Bestseller’s list within its first weeks release, making Suze Orman a bona fide financial superstar! Suze shared with me, “Out of all the books I’ve written, I’m lovin’ this baby more than any of them! 9 Steps to Financial Freedom hit number one on the New York Time Bestsellers list which was an absolute phenomenon in itself but everybody said, ‘that’s not so hard – anybody can do that if you’re on Oprah 11 times.’ Courage to Be Rich comes out and goes right to number one on the New York Times Bestsellers list and everybody says, ‘oh, that’s not that hard – you had an entire PBS special behind you. Road to Wealth comes out and one week after it comes out without any publicity whatsoever except for 4 minutes on the Today Show which is not enough to make a New York Times Bestseller; it hit the New York Times Bestsellers list within one week! What that says to me is that people are buying me now not being sold to me.”

    Ep. 51: Is The Fed Dazed And Confused? Plus: How Not To Deliver Pot In Cali

    in Finance

    This week, we're asking the question:   "Is the Fed dazed and confused?"
    The Federal Reserve is scheduled to announce its latest interest rate decision this week.  On the surface, this seems like a boring meeting.  Almost everyone believes the central bank will leave rates alone.  But where is the Fed going to go next?  Opinions are starting to split.
    Longer term, it seems likely that the Fed will eventually resume its rate-hiking campaign.  But there are growing whispers that the next move might have to be a rate cut.
    We'll take a deep dive into what the markets are looking for from the Fed and what the current economic outlook tells us.
    We'll also take a look at some of the earnings reports due out this week, including package delivery giant FedEx
    And as always, we'll park our Chevelles in front of some of Wall Street's more unheralded parties...
    We've got some good news about incomes in the U.S.  Well, good news if you didn't have to live through the last 17 years.  
    We've got Facebook claiming a wider U.S. reach than the U.S. has people.  We've got a retailer experimenting with having no inventory.    
    And we've got a few legal questions that need answering...One involves whether monkeys can hold a copyright.  Another involves the constitutional right to wear a bikini to work.  And a third tells you how NOT to deliver marijuana in California.  Hint: don't use a drone.

    This Could be Killing Your 401k Growth

    in Finance

    I chat with Independent Management Consultant, Joanna Zarach, about a small thing that is making a huge impact on retirement savings. Mutual fund fees are a given, but do you know a 2% change in fees could have a $300,000 impact on the amount of cold hard cash you have to retire on.
    I agree, financial books can sometimes look like a foreign language. However, Joanna breaks down exactly what you should look for to evaluate the fees you're paying. Performance may not be as meaningful if you're giving away cash unneccessarily.
