Ocwen Financial services NEEDS TO BE TAKEN DOWN NOW!
THIS IS AN EMERGENCY CRY FOR HELP - PLEASE HELP NOW. Since last October you and other Home Defenders have been taking action to save retired Atlanta cop and cancer fighter Jacqueline Barber's home - for her and her grandchildren - from foreclosure eviction by US Bank and GMAC. We've got an urgent update on the situation from our partners at Occupy Homes Atlanta: Today Jacqueline Barber got a call from Ocwen, a financial institute she's never heard of, informing her that she had 2 days to vacate her home. She had just gotten out of the hospital after having a procedure done on her back, leaving her walker bound when not bed ridden. The news from Ocwen was not the news a cancer patient fighting their second bout of multiple myeloma would want to hear. Jacqueline Barber found out that her mortgage has transferred from GMAC to Ocwen Financial Services, and Ocwen is refusing to honor any of the deals arranged with GMAC over the last 6 months. Call Ocwen CFO John Britti at 561-682-7535 and tell him to make a deal that Jacqueline can afford, or have her blood on his hands. (sample script below) Ocwen Financial services is a company notorious for shipping jobs overseas, creating tax havens in the Virgin Islands, and defrauding customers. The stress of an eviction would not only leave Jacqueline, her daughter, and four grandchildren homeless, it would also serve to accelerate her cancer. Call Ocwen CFO John Britti at 561-682-7535 and tell him to make a deal that Jacqueline and her family can afford, or have her blood on his hands. (sample script below) Script: “Hi, my name is _________ and I'm calling on behalf of Jacquline Barber at 160 Stearman Road in Fayetteville, GA 30214. I understand that Ocwen aquired GMAC in February and will not honor the negotiations that have kept Jacqueline and her family in her home to this point as she undergoes chemotherapy. I demand that you offer Jacqueline and her family a deal they can afford to keep them in their home, and relieve Jacqueline of the stress of eviction while she bravely fights bone cancer. Jacqueline worked hard in her professional life to keep people safe through her work as a police detective. She was even injured on the job. Now, facing a recurrence of bone cancer and an eviction foreclosure, she’s on the verge of having her home stolen by the same bankers who destroyed our economy, put 16 million homeowners underwater and 7 million families into the foreclosure process. Please make the call. You can report what happened on the call by clicking here and leaving a comment on the blog post. You will recognize it from the last time we had to make calls to save Jacqueline's home. In solidarity, --Nathan, Jeff, Kevin, Shab, and the entire Home Defenders League team.
