Scared to Death here and just sick... AMHS is telling me that my August and September payments have been returned account not found. How can this be when I have proof from my bank that the payments have been made and deducted from my account??? I have faxed them all the proof and even the more detailed information from the Automated Clearing house Federal Reserve proving these payments have been made... After weeks of dealing with 20 different people they are now telling me that they are showing a payment returned account not found in Jan. as well. I faxed them the proof that payment was deducted from my account!!! Now they are telling me they have paymenst missing from 08.. I just recived forclouser information in the mail and certified letters... I do not know what to do I do not have the money to pay them they have it they pulled it from my account so what is this account not found stuff??? I just do not know what to do.. I have never been late on a payment and now all this is happeing... Any suggestions on what to do??? Iam so scared I am going to loose my house.. How can they do this when all the proof is right there???

Don't stress too much. Just keep copies of every one of your payments, along with when they were cashed by AHM. When it goes to court for foreclosure, you will have all the backup you need with your cancelled payments and the bank statements showing the funds coming out of your bank account.

The judge will rule in your favor. AHM is banking on you NOT showing up for that hearing. SHOW UP. Arm yourself with backup on payments, phone calls, dates, names of those you talked to, all of it.

You can use the judgment (in your favor) to have your credit report adjusted BACK and the negative remarks removed.

Has anyone pursued a class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers with mortgages with these clowns?

After much of the same crud everyone else went through (lost payments, misapplied payments, loan mods never going through, etc.) I lost my home to foreclosure in January of 2008...and, unfortunately for me, it was before all the "help" hype...but I'd LOVE to stick it these slimes...

B,
sorry you lost your house.
I have been reading comments on different posts about AHM, AHMS & AHMSI where borrowers are wanting a class action.
Laurie, I had major issues with them years ago. One month on the 15th their phone lines were busy all day so no one could call in their payments to avoid the late fee that gets assessed on the 16th. Not sure how that played out - but certain if a borrower didn't fight with them they would have had to pay it.
They didn't pay my taxes while having 7 months in escrow. I had to pay them with penalities & interest. Then AHMS wouldn't refund my money, would only subtract it from the loan balance, even though under the RESPA they are legally requried to refund.
One time I scheduled a payment 3 weeks prior to the due date - they decided to put it thru a week early causing my account to be overdrawn, checks boucning, etc.
They just don't care what they do and to whome they do it to.
After Strauss let go of a vast amount of employees, followed within days the C-11 filing, "The slime stayed behind".

I do not know offhand if TXS is a judicial foreclosure state-----if it is you get to see the judge-----if not you just get a notice your house is gone-and you have to file to stop it---see an atty--------you are not one who is actually in default----be very careful

I had a foreclosure processed just like those described above in California in early 2009. Are there any class action suits in process that I can join?

if you want to see what docs are missing in loan files per trust go to the AHM BK docket & look up claim #9189 - start on page 41.
This was filed by Deutsche Bank.
I have it in PDF so can't post it for you on this site.
Trust me - it is worth looking at.

I am SICK to death of AHMSI. They apparently bought our mortgage from Option One and have been a nightmare ever since.
They call non stop, harass us and so forth. We are only one payment behind at this point and we made a double payment last month, that sent us to the food bank just to survive.
My main concern is how long can these Class Action Lawsuits be dragged out? and what do we do in the mean time, just keep giving money to these criminals? It's like throwing money into a dark hole, hoping it gets to the right place!

any chance you can e mail/pdf copy of the complaint filed? I have, recently, had the mortgage on my home declared null and void in my suit Nelson v AHMSI/Option One up here in Salem oregon. As of 4 days ago AHMSI filed for appeal in Oregon Court of Appeals. I am preparing my response at this moment. Maybe I can use some of your stuff and, if I prevail thry the appeal then you might want some of my stuff. I am 100% In Propria Persona.

Regardless I wish you folks the very best of success. AHMSI must have its head severed to stop them from ruining perhaps tens of thousands of lives.

Anna...your support is so very much appreciated. If your counsel and you think you may have stuff that might help then I would be grateful to accept. Of recent I am in response to the appeal. Anything that may suppoert my belief that OOPO, AHM, Sand Canyon are all alter egos of AHMSI, ergo "Wilbur Ross, et al" will be very valuable to me.

You may feel free to e mail me direct <[email protected]> to keep from "prying eyes".

Thank you for your contact.

It absolutely is. There is so much information in this POC, the needle in the haystack. Lots of others at http://dm.epiq11.com/AHM/Project/default.aspx .

we are in the middle of having our modification handed to a negotiator with AHMSI to stop an auction and all of the sudden their phone system is on a holiday and before that they were updating their platform. time is of the essence-when is our government going to prosecute these criminals-the woman at HOPE NOW is amazed by the criminal behavior-when will some agency take action so that we can save our home.
