Robo-signing Still a Bank Practice

Almost a year after they were outed for engaging in widespread fraudulent foreclosure document signing practices, known as robo-signing, big banks are still engaging in the practice, along with the contractors.

One registrar of deeds on the East Coast said “My office is a crime scene”, referring to his office still receiving large numbers of documents with suspicious or outright fraudulent signatures.

A county registrar in Michigan has referred  Marshall Isaacs, an attorney with foreclosure law firm Orlans Associates, for a criminal investigation for robo-signing. Mr. Isaacs’ name has appeared on foreclosure documents that more than one county’s officials believe have been robo-signed.
