My name is Shari Voroba and I care for my 77-year old diabetic father who is trying to save his home of 18 years. We have been trying to work with Bank of America to modify our home loan for over 3 years and have been handed one set back after another.
Two years ago, my father was fired from his job at Wal-Mart over a .49 candy bar. My father’s blood-sugar level was severely low and he needed to balance his count immediately. He decided to buy a candy bar, but unfortunately accidentally purchased it at his own register, which is against company policy. Instead of counseling him or putting him as a greeter they fired him. Walmart was aware of his medical condition and knew he should not have been on register. Typically, employees are given a warning, or a day off without pay, but for they decided this was his last day.
Some months later, the recession hit and I was laid off from my job as a bookkeeper at a tax firm as they were beginning to lose several clients. To make matters worse, my car was struck by a drunk driver, which left me with major shoulder, neck and knee injuries, and makes it very hard to find work.
Bank of America claims that they have not received our loan modification documents even when we have followed their submission guidelines to the ‘T’ and used FedEx every time we mail something in. What makes it frustrating is that we never talk to the same person about our case, and none of the bank branches near us handle modifications.
Now again, for the fourth time, we have submitted loan modification paperwork to Bank of America, buthave little reason to believe that they will do right and even process our case.
This is our only home and we have nowhere else to go.
Please stand with me and my father by signing my petition today. Thank you for your support.
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 18 years, and to work with them to modify their mortgage payments.
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 her mortgage payments that will allow her to stay in her home.
If the home is foreclosed upon and Mr. Voroba is on the streets he will die within a week. Mr. Voroba's health is not the greatest and is giving up hope. 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 3 years to complete.
