I just talked to the head investigator with the State of Maine Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection and he said that they CAN and WILL help! He reassured me several times that we are now in the right hands and that they deal with these situations ALL the time. He said that it absolutely does sound like we have been dual-tracked, and then there is also the issue that Carrington did not even own our loan and had no legal standing to foreclose. His exact words were, "It definitely sounds like the law is on your side in this case." He told me that Tom Cox just won another huge case similar to this, which will play in our favor since it shows that another one of these cases has just recently come down the pipeline where the mortgage servicer lost. This bureau works very closely with Mr. Cox and he is a big reason why our state has such tough laws when it comes to foreclosures. When I asked him if there is any way that all of this can be undone so that we can save our home, he very enthusiastically said, "Absolutely! We have full jurisdiction over Carrington in this state, and they have been very responsive to us in the past when there have been other complaints against them." Thankfully, our state has VERY strict consumer protection laws when it comes to this sort of thing, tougher than any other state, he said. He is contacting Carrington right away to let them know that there is now a complaint against them and that they are being investigated. I also emailed him all of the documentation from us working with Carrington this past year on the loan modification. Another thing that he mentioned is that the fact that Carrington was the one who bought our home as opposed to some random third party gives us a leg up since that makes this much easier to deal with and even "undo." We now have more hope than ever before. We have had absolutely no luck finding an attorney willing or able to take us on (I received another rejection this morning from yet another attorney), but now that the state is involved and they have full power over Carrington and can force them to undo this foreclosure and sale if the need to, it looks like we may not even need one.
