In June of 2013, homeowners all over the country were stunned when seven former Bank of America employees declared under penalty of perjury before the District Court of Massachusetts that Bank of America had made lying, deceiving, and bribing part of their home loan department policy.
Each employee described various deceptive practices Bank of America required of them when dealing with customers who were facing foreclosure and/or trying to obtain a loan modification. For example, one employee described denying modifications for hundreds of homeowners all at once simply because their applications had been on file for more than 60 days. Another employee stated that they were instructed to tell homeowners that they did not receive their email, fax, or FedEx even though their paperwork was entered in their file. Still more Bank of America employees were told to tell homeowners that their loan modification application was being reviewed even though no work had been done on it. Most shocking of all, some employees described receiving cash or gift cards for Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Target, and other retail outlets for meeting their quota on the number of loan modifications they denied in a period of time. The declarations further stated that for every ten homeowners they put into foreclosure, a bonus of $500.00 would be awarded.
