What does it mean when they say foreclosure action was/is brought in the name of MERS? New to this to me and I will admit that I know very little. If things don't turn around for me shortly, I will be in f/c and I have been trying to educate myself. I did research what MERS was suppose to do and how they have screwed up property titles across the country. Read an article from MERS stating that banks should not be bringing f/c action in their name. Does this mean that the plaintiff is MERS; example, MERS vs. Homeowner? And another silly question, if MERS does not own anything why would MERS be bringing suit? Thanks to all for your input.
