When you work in media a long time, people tell you a lot of stories. Most of them you can’t run for one reason or another—the person has no proof of his or her claims perhaps. Or maybe the prospect of a lawsuit is there because the current political climate aims to silence voices of those who disagree with the status quo.
After meeting Rebecca Sharp, she told me the story of her personal experience with foreclosure. Sharp’s case is probably not typical—she says she has made her mortgage payments and did so through Western Union. That way she had independent validation she made those payments. As I pointed out in the original column, Sharp’s problems involved her escrow account.
Since writing that story, I’ve received comments and one reader in particular was extremely upset.
