"The county Sheriff in Hamilton County could very well find
himself and others named in numerous lawsuits for "Failing
to protect the civil rights" of thousands!"
Gary I fully understand your frustration. However the truth is that county
government and law enforcement are not equipped to intervene with
alleged violations of this nature. Nor do they have the specialized man
power even if they wished to intervene. In something as sophisticated
as mortgage servicing fraud it must first be determined if it is a case of
“sloppy bookwork” or a misunderstanding.. Next if a clear violation of law
does exist it must then be determined if the was intentional..
After that the next hurdle is determining if the alleged disobedience of the
law was civil or criminal. As we all know there are government agencies
both at state and federal levels who are far better equipped to unravel
these controversies. I’m no friend of bureaucrats at any level but in this
case I can tell you that I personally would never ask to County Sheriff’s
office to investigate or enforce an alleged mortgage servicing fraud
They don’t have the horsepower much less the expertise.
County government is not intended to scrutinize who’s right or wrong in
complex matters of this nature. Part of our problem is we tend to expect
government to be there to unravel, arbitrate and adjudicate then ultimately
carry out the sentence at no cost to the taxpayer.
On the other hand county government at the judiciary level is equipped to
render decisions and judgments as well as executions of judgments at several different levels. This process costs money but if one is successful
reasonable legal fees are recoverable.
Unfortunately many in this forum do not have the money to take legal
action. Which brings us full circle back to the fact that there are more
competent venues at both the state and federal levels where a cost free
solution is “possible” (capable of happening). Just barely.
