8. Wells Fargo illegally foreclosed on my friend. They
took her home and refused all efforts on her part to even talk to them. The Law Mill they used to railroad her out of her home, is now out of business, thankfully. But no thanks to the Government or to Wells Fargo. He was brought down by ordinary people who chose to fight back in a major Rico Law Suit which revealed corrupt practices, and he is now the target of a Criminal investigation. But none of the that caused Wells Fargo to fire him. It was only when a former employee sent photos of his staff mocking the people whose homes he was taking that he finally had to quit due to the huge public outrage the NY Times article generated.

His name is Steven Baum. A predator working for Wells Fargo.

Even then, he blamed the Reporter and has yet to acknowledge the harm he has done to so many people whose homes he took from them. Nor has Wells Fargo.

When the government does not hold these criminals accountable, the people have to do so.

My friend has now received a request from the Government to send in details of her case as she 'may be entitled to compensation'. Too late, everything that mattered to her is gone and there was no one there to help prevent that theft when it was necessary.

Good for the Occupiers for doing the job our government refuses to do, demand accountability. Prosecutions are what need to happen, but until then, at least they are learning that while the Government may try to protect them, the people KNOW what they did and they cannot hide no matter how much ill-gotten money they may have.
