According to a lawsuit recently filed in a West Virginia state court, Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. (the firm formerly known as Fairbanks Capital Corp.) is being accused of collecting over $50,000 more than what was due from a West Virginia homeowner, whose mortgage balance had been previously reduced pursuant to a legal settlement in a previously litigated class action lawsuit. The current lawsuit, filed on November 14, 2007, alleges, among other things:
- "The Defendant [Select] failed to follow the ordered new payoff schedule consistent with the reduced loan. Despite the Court Order, the Defendant continued to treat the entirety of the loan as due, and have month-by-month demanded the full payment. Since January 2001, the Defendant has sent over eighty-two demands for payment that misrepresent the total amount due."
In a procedural maneuver, counsel for Select has filed a request last week to move the case from the state court to a West Virginia Federal Court.
Representing the consumer is attorney Daniel F. Hedges, Charleston, West Virginia.
