More Hitches in Foreclosure Fraud Settlement to Consumers

Consulting firm, Rust Consulting Inc.,  which has been overseeing payments to former homeowners and the paying bank, Huntington National Bank, have made corrections in their systems, which resulted in consumers being unable to cash or deposit their checks due to non-sufficient funds (NSF). The payments to the 4.2 million borrowers were a requirement of the agreement between bank regulators and the 13 largest mortgage servicers.

Originally, Rust Consulting indicated that 1.4 million payments had been sent on April 12, some of which were unable to be cashed, but now says that $3.6 billion is available.

However, consumers were unable to cash or deposit their checks due to insufficient funds.

Rust has since corrected the problem and verified that $3.6 billion is available to be cashed or deposited.

In a press release, James Parks, senior vice president of Rust Consulting, said “We apologize to anyone who experienced problems trying to cash their checks. We are working hard and communicating with the banking regulators, the servicers, and other banks to ensure those issues are not repeated. We want to assure the public that checks we have mailed under the Independent Foreclosure Review Payment Agreement process are valid.”
