A number of persons have been forced into foreclosure due to a Pick-A-Payment mortgage, which was originally offered by World Savings, which was taken over by Wachovia Bank, which, in turn, became Wells Fargo Bank. Pick-A-Payment mortgages have negatively effected people all over the nation. In these cases, the bank did not properly disclose information to those individuals who had been sold on those mortgages. The bank simply did not explain to their customers the negative effect that the Pick-A-Payment plan would have. It was the bank’s responsibility to help these individuals keep their property and refinance their homes. Wells Fargo entered into a class action settlement, with various Assuarnce agreements with the State Attorneys General of a number of states, including the Attorney General of Florida. Wells Fargo took on certain obligations which they may not have met with various of the defendants. Lee Schillinger will fight for you if you had such a Pick-A-Payment loan and where the bank has not been following its respective Assuarance Agreement obligations.
