WELLS FARGO - STOP RACHEL'S EVICTION AND MODIFY HER LOAN
I received an eviction notice Friday morning. I was ordered to leave Wednesday March 21. OLB and others are pledged to help to defend my home.
Please call the Long Beach Sheriff's Office at 562-491-5964 to tell them not to evict Rachel New of 2083 Freeman Avenue, Signal Hill, CA 90755. The case # is 11U03433.
*OCCUPATION OF RACHEL’S HOME BEGINS 6 PM TUESDAY MARCH 20!! OCCUPIERS NEEDED!!!!*
My two young daughters, disabled mother, a disabled aunt, brothers, and I are threatened with eviction from our dream home in Signal Hill despite trying for over a year to negotiate a loan modification with Wells Fargo bank.
I came to this country as an immigrant from the killing fields of Cambodia, where I was beaten and starved and saw people shot. I worked hard, graduated from CSU-LB, where I have worked for over 17 years. By the time my dream home was completed, it was underwater.
My husband and I are now separated and he is unable to pay child support, so I'm trying to maintain the household on only my income. I took a second job, and my brothers contribute what they can.
Last year, I began to negotiate a mortgage modification. The loan was transferred to a number of banks, each one asking for the same documentation. The mortgage ended with Wells Fargo. I called the bank almost daily. On the morning of September 28, 2011, I was once more told the modification was “pending.” That afternoon I received notice that the modification was denied. The next day, the bank sold the property to itself for half of what I owed.
During the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia, I was afraid at night because that’s when the killing happened. Now, I am afraid in the morning because that’s when I worry that I will receive an eviction notice.
I want to make my mortgage payment to Wells Fargo if they are willing to work with me in making the payment affordable.
Please sign this petition to help keep my family and I in our family home. Thank you for your support!
