Great Overview of the Foreclosure Fraud Mess by Florida Atty General's Office

A detailed spreadsheet that gives a great overview of how all this foreclosure fraud mess happened, with concrete examples, was prepared by June M. Clarkson, Theresa B. Edwards, and Rene D. Harrod of the Economic Crimes Division of the Office of the Florida Attorney General.  It's being used in court cases in other states, successfully, in foreclosure fraud lawsuits. 

This visual report, “Unfair, Deceptive, and Unconscionable Acts in Foreclosure Cases,” is easy enough to follow even without any accompanying discussion and I particularly like it for the screenshots it provides of the actual documents involved.  For example, you can see how there were so many different handwriting signatures for "Linda Green," because they give you screenshots of several of them.

It's really quite impressive, and all the more interesting given that two of these assistant attorneys general were later fired from their jobs.  Of course, there's talk that these firings were politically motivated and right now, there's an investigation into their being let go.

Meanwhile, here's their report for you to consider for yourself:
