#OccupyMinnesota Wins Negotiation for Foreclosure Victim

Just days after Ruth Murman came to OccupyMN seeking help to win two weeks to move before her home is foreclosed upon, U.S. Bank and GMAC have contacted her to settle the dispute.

Ruth had sought legal counsel and asked U.S. Bank to delay the eviction while she makes other arrangements, and until today U.S. Bank had refused to budge. This morning, U.S. Bank and GMAC called Ruth and agreed to give her the two weeks she had requested, and are currently negotiating a payment to help with moving costs.

"I got about 6 calls from U.S. Bank and GMAC yesterday," explained Ruth. "Its amazing how desperate they were to get in touch with me all of a sudden, after they have ignored my calls and refused to help my father and I for months."

Ruth runs a small business in Minnetonka called Auntie Ruth's Animal Care and Wellness Centers. The business employs 25 people though Ruth hasn't taken a paycheck in three years. Ruth lives with her father, a 79-year-old Korean War veteran who has cancer and has recently suffered several heart attacks.

"I'm so grateful for all of the hard work of the folks down at Occupy Minnesota. This means the world to my father and I. It shows that when we stand together we are stronger, and we can win."

This is awesome! The ultimate "occupation" is of our homes. It is a little sad to me that people will only rally around their neighbors if there is a sob story, though. The entire mortgage industry is rife with fraud, and THE BANKS defaulted at closing. (They did NOT enter negotiations in good faith, they intended to defraud. MERS was SET UP to defraud and if MERS was on the contract, the intent is plain.) No one should have to move, the banks should have to stop harassing people that they already defrauded.
