More on the press coverage
Nov 1, 2012 — I sent the bank all of the documents that they requested and as far as I knew, my modification was being reviewed until the minute that the realtor knocked on my door and told me that my house was being sold in an hour. The bank never approved or denied the modification until I complained to several federal agencies after the unannounced sale. The bank didn't attempt to work out any sort of a solution. They just sold the house without telling me. They probably thought that I'd keep quiet about it.
I love the Internet.
