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!

      American needs a Charles Dickens to march us back from Big Bank feudalism. This isn't really a God fearing, worshiping nation. It's a nation dedicated to the almighty dollar, and it's time for another war on poverty.

      When I think what Wells Fargo is doing to me is the worst I’ve seen - I find out that they have done much, much worse to others. My story is very similar to yours. I have been fighting Wells Fargo on my own for three years now; in and out of three HAMPS; made all the payments, “lost” paperwork every time etc. I was being put through a 4th HAMP when a man knocked on my door; that’s how I found out Wells Fargo had “sold” my home two days before.

      I work as a teacher’s aid in special education and had to quit college for my elementary education degree and interventionist for neglected and abused children, to fight Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo flipped my home back to Freddie Mac, who then filed to evict me and filed summary judgment which they were granted. I filed a “TRO” (temporary restraining order), to prevent the caring out the eviction order - and GOD BE MERCIFUL - the judge granted me the TRO. I still have a long battle and I am so tired.

      I live in Idaho were there is no in state help for homeowners like me and we are now prevented from out of state help by law. I can’t end my own suffering, but must see this through to the end so they are stopped from doing this to others. Every day I work with little ones I witness the damage done to them and their families by these banks...then I go home and fight the same battle for me and mine. I am praying and signing...

      Be strong.
