SunTrust Scandal, US Bank National Association, US Bank Corp, Wells Fargo

US Bank Corp. “Snared” in SunTrust Mortgage Scandal

NOTICE - Alleged Material Breach of RMBS Trustee Fiduciary Duties  by Mortgage Backed Security “Trustee” U.S. Bank National Association N.A. - US Bank Corp.

Below specific information is conveyed to US Bank a large MBS Trustee, with Wells Fargo acting as Master Servicer over its sub-contracted Sub-Servicer SunTrust Mortgage Inc. 

It is the Trustee (US Bank) who holds the securitized mortgages on behalf of the pool of Certificate Holders commonly referred to as Investors or Bond Holders.  These can be GSE's such as Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, large institutional investors and Pension Funds such as the North Carolina State Employees Trust Fund who historically were heavily invested in these securities.

When these deals as they are commonly called are put together, the custodian is to check each file within generally 90 days to ensure the documents actually exist, like the Wet-Ink Note for example.  These exceptions are tabulated and controlled by various rule ticklers and specific codes to identify the severity of the exception and compare to what was warranted and represented within the PSA.   Not are the hard files to be examined but the electronic data file must be checked in to ensure for example it includes the correct “Notice of Rate Change”, “Property Address” and note balance to name a few.

Exceptions / Breach examples included:

- Pmt Change Frequency Does Not Agree With Schedule
- First Interest Rate Adjustment Date differs from Schedule
- Incorrect ARM Index
- Interest Rate Adj Frequency Does NOT Agree with Schedule
- Pmt Change Frequency Does Not Agree With Schedule
- ARM Lookback Period is Missing and Incorrect

Next the custodian tabulates the finding and sends all interested parties a Certification / Exception report listing all the missing: Notes, Final Note Endorsement to Specific Trust, Deed of Trust, Final Assignment.

Corrective actions rolls back up-line to cure these material breaches to ensure the Certificate Holders are brought whole.  Said another way, its much like buying a vehicle based off the items and options listed on the window sticker, then executing the purchase sight unseen, to only later find when your vehicle arrives it lacks the “Engine”.

Once these initial interested parties have been provided specific set about of time to cure the documented exceptions, missing documents and material deficiencies at that point the burden would shift to US Bank National Association N.A. as Trustee to “Enforce” the warranties and representation conveyed by both the seller and depositor.  The Trustee MUST FOLLOW UP on each action of enforcement or can sustain significant risk inclusive of lost earnings, reputational risk, compliance risk, regulatory risk given the very intent of the Trustee purpose is, to have responsibility over the deal documents / PSA’s.  These responsibilities include the review and legal oversight over every aspects the transactions as the Trustees very intent is to, act as the Fiduciary to the MBS Trust and FOLLOW UP on known ticklers and or issues brought forward to the Trustee.

Therefor if US Bank as Trustee is “CAUGHT” not acting in the best interest of the Certificate Holders it represents the Trustee may become exposed to risk and damages brought on behalf of specific Certificate Holders like, for example the North Carolina State Employee Pension Fund.

In the email string below, US Bank as Trustee shows NO intent to cure this alleged breach that was specifically brought to US Banks attention.

Mr. Goldade -
 
As discussed - Please find the 2006 note with MERS# included.  Second, please find the Certified letter rcvd from Wells Fargo.  Third, you find a letter from STM dated 2/15/2017 that alters their longstanding statutory language, seeming to take a deliberate effort to walk back what has been previously conveyed. 
 
Specifically, STM inserted "For informational purposes" rather than simply stating who the owner / investor of the underlying instrument is.
 
STM, is very aware of what has occurred with these loans between Wells, US Bank National and SunTrust Bank Inc as "Collateral Custodian"...
 
Further, I'm in possession of documents acknowledging the wide spread issues inclusive of Double Pledged assets known by Wells Fargo acting as Master Servicer. 
 
Finally, I’ve attached 3 different LNA that the Sub-Servicer has presented, one stating STB (SunTrust Bank) was the NoteHolder with the other two LNA’s stating based on personal knowledge STM (SunTrust Mortgage) is the NoteHolder. 
 
I look forward to working with U.S. Bank National Association NA and providing documents in my possession to aid your firm in its investigative efforts into the widespread allegations previously discussed at length.
 
I'd like to also thank you and US Bank National Association for the quick response given the seriousness of my investigative finding and subsequent allegations.

Mr. Goldade -

I think you will find this document serves to identify what the Sub-Servicer (SunTrust Mortgage) has done.  I have also included the first page of two of the notes serving to identify the initial loan amounts.

It appears, the Sub Servicer knowingly released the security that backed at least two mortgages that contractually remain active inside their respective trust.

Please identify each of these Trust as it relates to U.S. Bank National Association NA as I would like to see if my finding aligns.

If this could be expedited it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you -

Mr. Lienhard -

As the former CEO of SunTrust Mortgage and current Chief Risk Officer of SunTrust Bank I thought I'd remind you of your Wet-Ink Criminal Settlement "Signature"...

Based on the link below it appears as if "Corelogic" is "Entangled" with SunTrust??   

Is this Assurant 2.0??

Racketeering or just Steering?  I'm not sure so thought I'd ask...

Kinda makes ur head hurt doesn't it...

SunTrust Mortgage Scandal

Did SunTrust Mortgage “Hood-Wink” you over the Tax Service Fee?  Let’s not forget those who may be enrolled in escrow, in the below borrowers state SunTrust retains the interest earned on the borrowers escrow funds.  Nothing like low hanging fruit…

Go pull your HUD statement tonight and see if you were charged a Tax Service Fee!

For those just joining us, click here to see just how hard SunTrust worked to cover this all up and circumvent the Truth in Lending Disclosures….  http://forum.citizensscience.org/index.php/topic,613.msg2236.html#msg2236

Perhaps its time for the SunTrust Board of Directors to have a serious sit-down with their Chief Risk Officer… Mr. Jerome.Lienhard@SunTrust.com

SunTrust Mortgage Scandal






Shhh…. Don’t disclose SunTrust Mortgage “Tax” Service Scheme…

SunTrust subsidiary, ValuTree brought in a million dollars in “Fee” profit, during the first year alone. ValuTree employees received 22 percent of their salaries in bonuses–four times what they would have made had they stayed at SunTrust.


When Pat Rollins, division manager of ValuTree, was given the chance to forma new real estate services company within SunTrust Mortgage, she wanted to be sure that every employee on her team was committed to its success. The new company brought procurement and payment of SunTrust clients’ tax bills in-house–services previously performed by external vendors.

SunTrust employees had often complained about the out source system, but they also used it as a scapegoat, Rollins says. “If something went wrong with a taxbill, there was always someone to blame,” she says. “At ValuTree we arefully responsible for all of the tax services. If we mess up, it’s our fault.”

She took half of the staff from Sun Trust’s tax service department to launch the new venture. To secure their loyalty and excitement, Rollins crafted a new pay-for-performance reward and recognition system that includes financial incentives, parties, and weekly conferences to recognize performance. The program encourages employees to improve accuracy in billing, lower error rates, and reduce overall costs. At the end of the year, if Rollins’s team meets a set savings goal, they receive a percentage of every dollar beyond it that they save the company.

But providing a financial payoff wasn’t enough to make the program successful. It would only work if employees understood the impact their behaviorhad on the company, she says. “It required a cultural shift, forcing the employees to think of ValuTree as their own business.”





She thinks it would have worked without the financial incentive as long as there was recognition, but the money got it rolling faster.


So Rollins introduced weekly meetings, in which one group of employees stands in front of the rest of the group and explains how their efforts that week affected the business–positively or negatively. In preparation for a busy fourth quarter, for example, one group set up tax bill payments in advance to avoid last-minute overtime costs. “The meetings force everyone to understand the dynamics of what they do and to see how all of their efforts tie together,” Rollins says.

In the beginning, teams attended meetings grudgingly, but after a while they got excited, and more and more team members started showing up to support each other. “Now, when one group has a success story to share, everyone celebrates,”she says. And when they make a mistake, instead of attacking each other, they try to find ways to fix the problems.

An individual employee, for example, might have missed an important due date, which resulted in significant financial penalties. Rollins was afraid they would all blame the individual responsible for the error, but instead many of them acknowledged that they knew she was overwhelmed that week and did not offer to help. They spent the rest of the meeting brain storming ways to avoid making similar mistakes in the future. “As a manager, it is amazing to see lower-level employees that committed to the business.”

When errors happen, ValuTree uses corporate funds from SunTrust to pay the costs, then the company has to pay that money back before it sees any new profits. In the past, no one cared about that debt, and it easily got out ofcontrol, Rollins says. Now she posts the debt on a board in the office, updating the balance twice weekly. “It’s like a credit card; if they don’t pay it off, they lose their incentives.”





At the end of each month, Rollins throws a low-cost party to celebrate the team’s efforts, and to go over the cost-savings they’ve compiled over the year. At those parties she acknowledges individuals who have contributed significantly to the savings for that month. Several employees have told her they’ve never received this kind of recognition from a manager before. “Just to hear their names tied to an accomplishment gives them a sense of pride in their work,” she says.

The incentive program has had a huge impact on the success rate. In the first year, ValuTree saved SunTrust a million dollars and her team received 22 percent of their salaries in bonuses–four times what they would have made had they stayed in SunTrust.

It also has changed the way they approach their jobs, she says. In early 2002, for example, the team began evaluating the duties of any employees who quit to determine whether they should be replaced or if the team could absorb their workload. As a result, this year they opted not to replace two employees who left, in order to improve efficiency and profits. “They are thinking like business owners, and seeing the value their choices and efforts have to the company,” Rollins says.

The key to the program is not the money. It’s making sure employees understand their role in the business, Rollins says. She thinks it would have worked without the financial incentive as long as there was recognition, but the money got it rolling faster. Within six months of launching the program, she saw a reduction in billing errors. “The incentive tied it all together. When they do well they see the rewards, and when they screw up they feel the pain.”

Subject: Time Machine, Whistles and SunTrust Mortgage...


Ms. Ballos -

Can you tell me @ SunTrust Mortgage's "Time-Machine"?

You know, it's the one housed in the elusive SunTrust Mortgage "Production" Department.

That's the department where SunTrust "Invents" the Documentation needed, then SunTrust "Staff" willfully and knowingly instruct unknowing full-time "Temps" to "Attach" the newly "Minted" Fake Documents to Mortgages, to "Create" and Define the Chain of Title... 

A chain that had never before existed.

Has SunTrust considered a US Patent on its "Time-Machine" Invention interface housed within the SunTrust Mortgage "Production" Department?

So, Ms. Ballos...  Do you have a "Whistle" or just the "Time -Machine"??

New Video 3/19/ 2018 -

Departing 2017 document signer from within the SunTrust Mortgage “Production” Department on Inventing the Mortgage Assignment Chain as outlined by longtime SunTrust document signer deposition.   



It's nice to know the level of QC that goes into signing your mortgage documents on behalf of SunTrust.  Is that research or just securing signature specimens??

SunTrust Scandal and Fake Loans


Bryan Bly, Vice President of SunTrust Mortgage never worked for SunTrust!! (see notary application below)

SunTrust Mortgage ‘Willfully and Knowingly” allowed critical, Chain of Title Mortgage documents to be executed by Mr. Bly who, admitted he didn’t even read what he was signing!  Mr. Bly further held himself out to be a Vice President of SunTrust Mortgage, knowing full well this was a false.

So where does this SunTrust “Vice President” really work?  Mr. Bly is employed by Nationwide Title Clearing, a vender of SunTrust Mortgage…

Yes, the Vice President of SunTrust Mortgage admitted he just signed mortgage documents having never read them!

This is not so much about Mr. Bly, rather it falls squarely on Mr. Jerome Lienhard who at the time served as CEO of SunTrust Mortgage. 

Mr. Lienhard rose to prominence after utilizing $320M of shareholder assets to settle a massive Criminal Investigation into the actions of SunTrust Mortgage.  Currently Mr. Lienhard holds the title of Chief Risk Office of Suntrust Banks Inc. with a reported annual income exceeding $2.5M.

SunTrust Scandal



More on SunTrust Mortgage "Vice President" Bryan Bly...

In Guilford County, N.C., the office that records deeds says it received 456 documents with suspect signatures from Oct. 1, through June 30 in one year alone.  The documents, mortgage assignments and certificates of satisfaction, transfer loans from one bank to another or certify a loan has been paid off.

Suspect signatures on the paperwork include 290 signed by Bryan Bly and 155 by Crystal Moore. In the mortgage investigations last fall, both admitted signing their names to mortgage documents without having read them.




Question...  Do you Bank at SunTrust??
