Initially Bank of America was trying to put a 78 year old man onto the streets by denying him the Department of Justice Modification. Now he is starving this man to death by taking his entire social security check. They are now offering a trial modification of $1366 his entire $1400 a month Social Security check. Leaving him with no money for food. My father will die if put out on the streets and will definitely die without food. This is a picture of the man BofA is putting out on the streets. I am doing what I can to assist him I am taking my disability check including the money that was meant for food to keep his utilities going, pay for his medication, to pay his medical expenses because Medi-Cal is requiring that he pay a $780 deductible before they will pay anything. Now Cal-Fresh is requesting that he pay back money that they gave him for food. I have gone four weeks without food, no toothpaste to brush my teeth and just about out of bath soap. Valencia Water has provided us with a shut off notice. From the time this photo was taken he is now down 25 lbs.
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Bank Of America.
Dear Brian Moynihan,
I'm calling on you to immediately stop the foreclosure on the home Shari Voroba and her father where they have lived in for the last 20 years, and to work with them to modify their mortgage payments. He is now being denied the Department of Justice Loan Modification which he was told he qualified for. It is our belief that Bank of America DOES NOT want to work with Shari and her father to keep her father's home. He is going to be forced at the age of 77 soon to be 78 to live in a 2 door Nissan Sentra.
Although as of recent a trial modification of $1366 has been offered you are taking Mr. Voroba's entire social security check leaving him no money for food. Food stamps has discontinued because the home is listed as being in foreclosure.
Shari is working on going back to work after being disabled by a drunk driver in 1999. Because of her accident she has had to have several major surgeries preventing her to work She is trying to finish her master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. Upon completion her starting salary can be as much as $65,000 a year. Shari has been using her disability checks to cover the utilities and other expenses. Shari to date has not eaten in two weeks due to no money to eat. She is seeing that her father eats over her. Shari's health has been placed in jeopardy. I am sure that BofA does not care.
Stanley was wiped of all his savings by his former employer Tadabumi Takasu of United Hi Tech in which he worked for over 15 years. Mr. Takasu borrowed over $250,000 from Stanley to keep the company afloat. In turn Mr. Takasu closed the company and went back to Japan leaving Stanley high and dry. Considering a law suit the cost to file a law suit in Japan is costly and by the time they are done they would walk away empty handed.
Mr. Voroba would not be in this position if it weren't for Mr. Takasu for whom is provided dedicated service. Mr. Takasu always told me Shari considered her father the boss.
According to Shari, Bank of America has given her the runaround for more than three years -- losing documents that she'd submitted over and over again, and constantly shifting them from one point of contact to another who knew little of their circumstances.
This is completely unacceptable behavior. As a lender that has received billions of taxpayer dollars to remain solvent and encourage loan modifications, Bank of America has a responsibility to work with consumers and help stop the foreclosure crisis. Instead, you offer false hope and victimize people like Shari and her dad.
I demand that you stop the foreclosure proceedings on Stanley's home, grant him a single point of contact with the bank, and grant him a modification of his mortgage payments that will allow her to stay in his home.
If the home is foreclosed upon and Mr. Voroba is on the streets and he will die within a week. Mr. Voroba's health is not the greatest and is giving up hope to live. Shari cares for her father 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Bank of America is always commenting how customers are first and how they want to see their customers remain in their home, if this is the case then why hasn't the loan modification been completed. It should not take almost years to complete.
