An explosion of support erupted onto Daily Kos and Huffington Post yesterday with many trying to find a way to contact Jocelyn Voltaire and help her out.
Read Huffington Post thread here.
At this point, no one has set up an official donation entity for her. But here is all the information we have so far:
Jocelyn's Contact Information
It's kind of frustrating, I know. We all want to help her. I got dozens of requests to post her contact info so people could send money. Now it seems there are a few who don't want her contact info here. Above is my compromise.
Long Island Office:
Brooklyn Office (ask for Ann Sullivan):
Thanks to ingeniousGirl for the following information:
"1. talked to Joceyln's brother Cromwell Fremont (862)216-6616 (cell) - neither he nor Jocelyn had any idea the video was on internet today, he was going to send me his email and I'll forward it to you when I get it so YOU can send it to him :)
- Got the details, mortgage is approximately $286,000, monthly payments are $2300, she is 2 years in arrears, it all started then when she was visited at night around 10:00 p.m by 4 men with loan documents. I'll tell you on the phone what Cromwell told me and there is a police report because Jocelyn filed it as they skipped out on her.
- Her mortgage servicing company is "Litton Mortgage", a slimy company that makes profits by taking troubled loans, keeping them in the status for a long time to get as much money as possible from these poor people. I have a great quote from an analyst that is disgusting stating how they profit and he says it like OMG just an idiot.
- Here is the real interesting part - In October of this year the parent company of Litton Mortgage Servicing Co. (C-Bass) was going broke cause all of their paper was worthless, but it sold Litton, and Goldman Sachs bought.
- So now, Jocelyn's mortgage is being serviced by the surviving Litton entity in Texas, but essentially Mr. Blankenfien's company owns her mortgage."
I will be updating this diary with a few others (ingeniousGirl) throughout the day.
REC to keep this alive!
I just saw this comment on Huff Post:
I just called Ms. Voltaire and spoke with her. She was about to leave for the court house to get some answers. Unfortunately, I had a very difficult time understanding her accent and she was understandably distraught. What I gathered from the call is that nothing has been set up yet to get money to her. I told her that many people were trying to get money to her and she said that she needs it badly. She has 2 other children and is out of work now. I told her that I would send money to her home address and she said that was fine.
This diary has unfortunately fallen, quickly, off the front page again. At this point, we can only hope some kind of miracle happens. I hope people here on Kos and those on Huff Post are able to fulfill their ambition to help prevent Jocelyn from losing her home. I will post another diary tomorrow. It'll either say "MIRACLE: Jocelyn Voltaire keeps her home" or it will say the opposite. I'll keep you posted.
