60 Minutes confirms what our Miami foreclosure attorneys have said for months

Well, you heard it here first. We don’t expect to beat 60 Minutes to the news very often, but Sunday night’s special on how the government’s mortgage modification program has provided little or no help homeowners in South Florida is something we have been reporting for months.

We reported on Linda Green and forged mortgage documents back in January. She was listed as a vice president of at least two dozen banks. Instead, she was a $10 hour employee working at a Georgia “sweat shop” that signed thousands of phony mortgage documents.

In fact, the 60 Minutes story focused on just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Our Miami foreclosure defense lawyers have published a host of other stories dealing with the crisis touched on by 60 Minutes.
