Mortgage Servicer SLS Has Lawyers Go All Lord Humungus On MFI-Miami
It seems as if MFI-Miami has gotten the attention of Australian-owned mortgage servicer SLS or Specialized Loan Servicing. As a result, SLS has now used its lawyers to go all Lord Humungus on MFI-Miami.
Hopefully, you’re old enough to remember who Lord Humungus was.
For those of you who don’t, he was the savage mutant who ruled the wasteland of post-apocalyptic Australia in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.
SLS had their Florida attorneys send me a nastygram threatening to sue me last week for defamation.
Apparently, they weren’t happy about an article I wrote about them in March. Obviously, I struck a nerve.
The March article detailed how SLS was defying the COVID-19 related foreclosure moratoriums initiated by the Trump Administration and several states.
Mortgage Servicer SLS Says They Are “Shocked” To Learn They Foreclosed on Someone During A Global Pandemic
Attorney Jennifer Mansfield from the law firm Holland & Knight sent the letter demanding to see proof of my claims.
Holland & Knight claimed SLS was “shocked” that a foreclosure would happen. It was kind of like the scene in Casablanca when Captain Renault finds gambling going on at Rick’s Cafe Americain.
Mansfield or her paralegal wrote the letter in a way that SLS knew they were foreclosing on people. However, they weren’t sure if I actually had proof or if I was bluffing.
In the early days of MFI-Miami, I would just ignore it or send the letter back with a big racing stripe down the middle of it. However, I decided to play nice. After all, business is slow due to COVID-19 and my attorney is super busy.
Plus, I’m in a legal fight right now with disbarred and disgraced former lawyer Mark Stopa.
So the last thing I need is another lawsuit. Yeah, I would win it. But is it worth the wasted time and money when it could be settled right of way? Especially with a mortgage servicer that I work with on a regular basis to keep my clients in their homes.
So I talked the SLS lawyer down from the ledge. I told her I did, in fact, have a copy of a foreclosure complaint filed in South Carolina and sent it to her.
