We're inching along. Modest progress. No prairie fire interest as yet. But a decent slow burn, the kind that hides itself until heat and no rain cause it to flame up. Trick to the flame is more major media coverage of Lender Mendacity and more people to sign the Petition to the U.S. Government (see last link below).

I am now contacting housing reporters and government agencies (MHA Compliance, Freddie (my loan owner), FDIC, SIGTARP, Treasury, OCC, etc. Will post a list of those contacted in this diary.

Here's a useful link for more info on Lender Mendacity:

Link to the thread on Lender Mendacity. Sharp suggestions here.

More links below, including to my letter to the President, resent August 17 (no response as yet from the White House).

"Please only post articles" thread of articles and resources at the LoanSafe Site. A HUGE resource, you can spend hours here.  

Link to "The Latest" MHA monthly servicer reports from the Treasury Department (scroll down a bit for the MHA monthly servicer reports).

Link to Executive Summary of my (now) five-page letter to President Obama on Lender Mendacity.

Link to the full five-page letter to the President.

Link to the Petition2Congress PETITION TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT FROM AMERICAN HOMEOWNERS. Only 2,000 signers so far - yet the petition makes eminent good sense, seems to me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
