About

An investigative news junkie for quite some time. From 2006 to the present, I am currently a contributor for Newsinkling.com, a UK website where I wrote articles on investigative cases such as the CIA Leak Investigation, the CIA leak for a CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, known as the DC Madam, and Juvenile Justice Scandal, a scandal of misappropriation grant monies within the Department of Justice. In addition, I created in 2006 a blogsite, Justice League, dedicated to educating and empowering readers with news and information that matters.

  3. Hi there,

    I just read an article on productivity that you posted a while back on your blog: https://justiceleaguetaskforce.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/hud-audit-finds-reo-field-servicers-often-underpaid/

    I thought you might be interested in a workplace productivity infographic we just published, it’s titled ‘Hardly Working: a look into laziness in the workplace’, check it out: http://complianceandsafety.com/blog/workplace-productivity-infographic-hardly-working/

    It shows that 23.4% of employees are less productive because they feel underpaid.

    If you like it, feel free to publish it on your site.

    Thanks a lot,

  4. JusticeLeague you provide a tremendous service for attorneys, paralegals, researchers, legislators, homeowners, the general public and other bloggers to help spread the word. Anyone objecting to a re-post of their material is a small minded “Selfish Jack” …see the definition under the DeadlyClear “By Invitation Only” tab.

  5. Out today on the Indiana Court of Appeals website; only 8 pages, but what a read:
    Hitesh Seth v. Midland Funding, LLC, as an Assignee of Columbus Bank and Trust as Issuer of Aspire Visa
    Assignment with bank employee self-authenticating affidavits (but no itemized loan listing) fails. While judge(s) did not specifically say so, I think it’s clear it violates UCC articles 9 and 3, as transfer was in bulk with no loan detail as to what was transferred.

  6. Hello,

    Noodle just launched a new way for students to evaluate law schools and compiled a report on “The 2014 State of Law School.” :http://www.noodle.org/noodlings/nl8B3/the-state-of-law-school-2014

    I’d love for you to consider sharing it with your readers.

    Best,

  7. Thank you for sharing! The post looks great 😀

  8. Ok Linda Almonte here and I need to get a call out to people to contact me if they are victims for my latest SEC and regulator update. Well as we all know for billions in intentional fraud in the credit card division with a business strategy to intentionally abuse the judicial system to bypass state and federal consumer protection laws by using illegal actions to obtain default judgments that total in the billions so collections are easy no calls or letters needed they can then garnish wages, clean out and take all bank accounts and put liens on homes and so on. Now when they learned of the OCC investigation I launched in 2011 after proving up every allegation for years and were told a plane full of auditors were dispatched to their credit card operations center in San Antonio you may remember the front page WSJ article they fired some of the internal attorneys and dismissed some lawsuits (without prejudice meaning don’t get happy just reassigning the attorney name and be back) and everyone celebrated. Well the OCC did sent a group of auditors as we learned from the great investigative work of American Banker and inside employees trying to stay and get information out in a not too friendly environment. They were put under a cease and desist order and the auditors camped out for months leaving with truckloads of document. That whole time since 2011 when they supposedly halted all litigation on any Chase, WaMu, Providian, Circuit City, Bank One, Best Buy and so on credit cards and according to statements also went back and the 2009-2011 were dropped and people refunded too they worked on earning brownie points with the regulators camping out. They had all employees just still coming to work but no litigation no work and working with the auditors on all the things they could change to actually work and follow state and federal laws. At the same time they also claimed to have stopped debt sales and the selling of bogus customer data with incorrect balances, many accounts paid years prior but no captured in their various old dos systems and databases instead of systems for some functions. Again they promised not to resume until they could be in compliance. Last year when Jamie Dimon called up Holder and told him what his settlement would be and the terms they did pay multi-billion dollar settlement for the foreclose part of the OCC investigation and results that there was intentional fraud committed to make numbers at the expense of at least 100k people with the credit card litigation portion alone. Now that investigation they asked to roll into the the announcement but is it’s own OCC Consent Order and terms they asked for “cooperation agreement” status basically deferred prosecution but not even a monetary fine. This order is very detailed within a short time frame that had to make sure there were non of these illegally obtained judgments in any court and refund consumers from all the ones previously. Jamie Dimon personally to regulators, investors and the SEC 10K and 8K filings swore all litigation stopped in 2011 and they had not resumed and still haven’t as of now and again assured no more debt sales with bogus data and putting “as is” in the sale contract their rationale that it didn’t matter the billions in intentional fraud harming so many they found a “loophole” as Matt Taibbi describes in the book finally released “The Divide” in which my story is chapter 8. He assured regulators and investors (now tell me if I am crazy but outright lying to investors on TV, in their investor presentations and in SEC reporting should qualify as misrepresenting information to investors and lying to the SEC, all regulators, investors and customers is an SEC issue. And those customers Jamie and others seem to think are free play money and should just keep on forking money into Chase to keep their gambling money available and the only customers Jamie even talks about it and is worried about is investors are happy. . Investors were finally getting concerned with the amount of media coverage the collections, litigation and debt sales in the credit card division was getting and escalating more and more. So Jamie assured all since they had not filed any lawsuits since 2011 and got the brownie points with regulators and no charges, not even a fine just a thank you for cooperating and be good in the future but did update that OCC Consent order with some strict time frames to assure all is cleaned up and that free pass could be snatched away fast if they aren’t compliant with it. Jamie swore to all of the agencies and the SEC reporting and investors all credit card issues were done with my case now and all could move on to other items. Specifically even said with the exception of a few straggler lawsuits with the credit card back office there was no way of any further issues as they discontinued the areas where the fraud was in 2011 and not restarting anytime soon. Investors got confidence back in credit card and Jamie gave himself a 74% raise taking his income to $30 million and highlighted with all of the settlements and fines Chase numbers still returned good dividends in part thanks to the sudden increase in sale in the credit card division. Well starting last spring after being asked to speak at a consumer attorney seminar with over 60 consumer attorneys and a couple fraud examiners that they really didn’t teach banking, collection agency processes or debt buying in college which I knew but also they don’t teach most banking regulations in law school. Now that was a problem when top consumer attorneys are surprised and learned a lot in a two day session with just basic explanations of the industry and how everything works and expanding on their regulatory knowledge. Several of those attorneys spent the past year now really kicking ass against banks and debt buyers just with additional knowledge and q&a so I kept it up training consumer attorneys to fight like bankers and it is really working. The day after the OCC Consent order and settlement one of the fraud examiners from the seminar called me. I had taught them the same as I did Matt Taibbi for the book and to prove all my allegations 100% true how to walk into any court and with the free clerk computer in minutes find thousands of these accounts and the equal from BOA, AMEX, Citi, Cap ONe, every debt buyer, Ford Motor and so on from that short period in between WaMu and Chase I was on “the darkside at NCO” . Anyways turns out I can’t find a court not packed and current employees confirm they never stopped litigating only moved process to Elgin Il the old Bank One headquarters. I have millions in judgments from multiple states but can’t contact the people I find in court files and need to find some of the victims. So anyone with a judgment from Chase Credit Card please contact me and by the way I will get you lawyered up as those illegally obtained judgments may turn out to be winning lotto tickets for the victims. People need to pull their credit bureaus and look for them in tradelines and under public records and go to their local courts websites and search public records under their name. The majority of people have no idea until a good chunk of the paycheck is missing and will be missing for a duration of time and then they go to the ATM and their checking and savings accounts were cleaned out by Chase. Even the same robosigner names, a lot of internal attorneys in addition to external, same bogus manufactured proof of account and balance (a spreadsheet) no one served and so on. Right now anyone impacted holds all of the cards for a consumer suit and myself, other former employees, industry experts and fraud examiners will all attack these cases to give the people the perfect suits with every detail and law broken regulation violated spelled out in detail and statistical work up of hefty damages for that consumer while regulators get all the information and figure out what to do with this one. Any of you who read Matt Taibbi’s book and my part on this staying in line with Matt’s over and over again question of how is it no one went to jail and regulators saying bank cases are so complex we will even prepare everything needed to some criminal prosecutions gift wrapped and ready for a grand jury and see if we can get any takers. BTW the executives in Credit Card who admitting did this on purpose and not only fired but wiped out anyone that questioned anything or wouldn’t sign off or be apart of billions of dollars in fraud of course are still there and your accounts and data in their hands even the AVP shredder who shredded all customer and attorney correspondence, scra military notices, bankruptcy notices, stop payments ad the list goes on for a full 18 months. I mean there was no value in processing those items it didn’t bring in dollars per hour or day for the department so what if they were suing guys deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan and claiming they were served so they come back to or the spouses have all their accounts wiped out. And consumers paying attorneys and no matter what they did it not slowing anything let alone stopping easy they were shredding it same with all the other stuff. She is among the group all promoted, raises and ruling with even more confidence than ever and they remind all at least weekly say a word and follow in my footsteps and get wiped out. Well as those people leave or find other jobs or early retirement you will notice more sources in the articles and although former employees received very serious calls from Chase when the AG investigations started telling them to call their attorneys immediately if contacted by any AG or regulator that “Chase would provide them with the legal resources they would need in these investigations” making it sound like they former employees were under some criminal investigation and needed Chase attorneys to protect them. In reality it was intentional obstruction of justice and they wanted to get them under retained so that their handpicked and scripted attorneys spoke for the employees. Well several eventually told them where to go and asked which AG’s and regulators they were worried about so they could ask for subpeonas. Again anyone with a Chase, WaMu or Providian judgment against them if you owed money or not or already paid contact me via one of my websites http://www.consumerdebtassociation.com or lindaalmonte,com there is a team here that wants to give you every resource imaginable to make Chase pay you for their intentional fraud against you and will work to get you max min damages the only way to really stop them or the rest of the industry also a train-wreck is to put the screws to the high profit margins.. Currently only 1% of consumers get an attorney and file anything for these billions of dollars in intentional fraud, usually it is hard to get a consumer attorney experienced in this, they don’t have any money because their wages are garnished and so on. They actually plan out x million dollars a year in “cost of doing business lawsuits” as they call them It is such a tiny hit compared to the billions even if they total in the millions it is a joke. Well this motivated team can uncover every little violation, damages you received past present and future you may not realize and go for high punitive damages to stop the abuse of courts for intentional fraud. I am in Florida now but will be back and forth from Florida and California the next couple of month. Remember California also has an AG lawsuit against Chase for this and recently won the motion to dismiss against their 8 month fight and so any residents of California would be great and there is a LA team ready to go. So spread the word everyone pull credit bureaus and check court records looking for any judgments from banks, creditors or debt buyers especially Chase because of the intentional violations and lying to regulators and the world but with all of the orders out now really from anyone you have a good hands down case. And remember they rolled out a lot of tighter laws and regulations and you do have options and recourse even if you do owe the debt filing falsified evidence in court and not serving people makes that judgment illegally obtained in every way. Just think what would happen if in criminal cases it got our a police department was manufacturing evidence to guarantee and outcome and denying the person the right to an attorney or even to know about the trial and show up. It is really the same abuses of the judicial system in either situation. And as now every regulatory agency has confirmed over and over robosigning is illegal in any situation and by the way debt buyers all affidavits are robosigned there is no one with personal knowledge or access to it they are not allowed to file affidavits and can’t get them. And robo-calls are illegal and you can get an instant $500 to $1500 per call. The details are on my website but lets start knocking out that profitability at millions of peoples expense.

    I’ve been let go from a job I loved because I spoke out about GMO’s. I’m hoping you’ll stand with me in solidarity. Please consider signing my petition for reinstatement?

  11. I warned City of LA attorney about problems with their case against Chase. Can you refer an attorney to approach them as I’m caught between Chase and City actions. If they don’t work with me can review my experience for possible media campaign.

  12. This is Linda Almonte myself attorneys and fraud examiners are working on it but my Lindaalmonte.com and http://www.consumerdebtassociation.com websites were hacked and taken over. I cannot access them and the seminars using my name, other high profile whistleblowers like Michael Winston and top fraud examiners and are marketing and charging for a seminar in September and asking for investors is all fraud there is no seminar or investment opportunities. The person has been identified and criminal charges are being filed. So those websites and the associated social networking sites not me or any professional or anyone with any credibility is responding. People are being told they are contacting me and other professionals or attorneys. Whistleblowers attorneys media and consumers and none come any professional or attorney. We do know the person being charged has a very long criminal history. Perhaps will make the show worlds dumbest criminals especially claiming a copyright for free information and resources from the CFPB and FTC and if you want to commit fraud sending to 3000 attorneys is really the way to go. Let alone use the names and credit cards of the highest profile whistleblowers in the country that took on the largest banks.

  13. I am prosecuting a civil action against Mozilo, Countrywide et al. Can you connect with me? I am looking to identify witnesses for trial who have been victims of their fraudulent loans.

    • I have a meeting with Michael Winston in an hour he is a friend of mine. (Michael aka BOA/Countrywide executive Whistleblower that put Mozilo on trial in LA and won) He has been featured in the NY Times his story winning the writer a Pulitzer, Rolling Stone (Matt Taibbi has done a lot to us couple high profile bank whistleblowers, Frontline did a story on him the untouchables and there was one “The Man Who New Too Much”. I am working with him on a couple items now. Is your case in State or Federal Court and what state are you in. He fought hard not to let anything get under protective orders and no gag orders and he has evidence usable in court. I have a Mozillo deposition from another case that was used in court and is admissible too.

  14. Sean Boileau aka @whatchawearing has hacked and taken over the website consumerdebtassociation.com he has no ownership ot affiliation with the organization. He has altered the information and it is no longer in compliance for consumers or attorneys. The seminars he is marketing using multiple high profile whistle blower names and credible certified fraud examiners do not exist with him or what is being marketed and sold on the website. No credible attorney would advertise on this site as it is out of compliance with ABA and most state bar attorney advertising and marketing. The marketing for investors is illegal and there is nothing to invest in it is fraud and actually securities violations to even try. He has taken this domain hostage and purchased others using credit card fraud and identify theft. The real company Consumer Debt Association and it’s affiliates are still in place with the proper professionals running them. New websites and social networking are being built now and better than ever with more free information and resources for all. Consumer Debt Association will never ask for money from investors, market advertising, or charge consumers in any way. The details about the person doing this is in the multiple legally public information posts below. This person has no experience in banking, marketing, finance or law. Well actually he seems to have a lot of experience in law as least with the 25 years of charges and convictions against him ranging from fraud, grand theft, kidnapping at gunpoint, possession and selling of multiple drugs, manufacturing of drugs, numerous felony assault and battery including on a pregnant woman. On his Facebook he claims he used to work for a very reputable attorney that has helped numerous consumers for decades and taught other attorneys how to better represent clients in consumer law it is a disgrace for him to even put these honorable and credible peoples names on anything he is using to make his fraud more convincing.

  15. Thanks for the information, Linda. It is good hearing from you. Oh, and thank you for let us all know that you are working with Michael Winston. Mr. Winston certainly deserve justice after what BofA has done to him.

  16. I was able to get continuation with City of Los Angeles. Am caught between Chase actions and city enforcement. May be able to approach City Attorney. If Linda or anyone can suggest anyone to approach would appreciate reference. Can leave email here http://bit.ly/Si8EL5

  17. Have government officials sign this pledge on a common sense approach to mortgage and foreclosure fraud! Please like the page.

    http://bit.ly/1xJaWB7

    • OK I liked the page. If only congress and Senate had common sense which they don’t. But, I agree that there should be a common sense approach to protect the homeowners and banks’ rights in mortgage and foreclosure fraud and not just protecting the banks’ interest only.

  18. Appreciate it! On that note I posted a petition on White House site. Need 150 signatures to go public and 100,000 for Obama administration to review.
