             Flagstar Bank:

Bank Evicts Barbara Campbell Cancer, Kidney,  & Heart Failure Patient!

 

As Barbara Campbell Protests On Saturday January 16th 2016 in her wheelchair right before her dialysis treatment; she fights to stay in her home along with other supporters/ protestors on that brutal cold day. Along with the ABC NEWS Media to cover her story!

 

As Barbara Campbell fights to survive

One medical disaster after another — cancer, heart surgery, loss of kidney function and 3 strokes — Flagstar Bank has foreclosed on her Detroit home.

Now, after many promises that it

Wouldn’t do so, the bank is moving to evict Ms. Campbell. Fannie Mae owned the mortgage, which Flagstar serviced for the federally administered mortgage company.

As a medical hardship case,

Ms. Campbell clearly qualifies for the mortgage modification she applied for after being diagnosed with cancer. She did everything asked of her and was told that during the modification review there would be no foreclosure on her home. That promise was broken in 2013 when the house suddenly went to sheriff’s sale.

 

Ms. Campbell appealed for help to

Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence’s office

Half mile east of Inkster Rd.

Flagstar said it would not evict Ms. Campbell. It has now tossed that pledge aside and is seeking an eviction order from the courts.

This is the same type of action that

Brought Flagstar before the federal Consumer Finance Protection Bureau in 2014 for “illegally blocking borrowers’ attempts to save their homes.” Flagstar signed a consent order, paid $37 million in penalties, and promised to stop denying loan modifications to qualified home- owners. It has now tossed that pledge aside as well.

Flagstar claims to be a “community”

Bank and a Michigan company, but it is actually owned by Matlin Patterson Global Advisors, a New York company that Forbes Magazine described as a leading “Vulture Investor,” known for “picking the bones of crumbling companies.”

Please Call Flagstar Bank at 248-312-5400 and insist they stop this cruel & fraudulent eviction. Press prompt for Headquarters and ask for Tony Monte. Refer to Loan 0596526028. Ms. Campbell lives at 1001 Covington Drive #3 in Detroit.

Please also tell Fannie Mae that Flagstar’s deception should not cause Ms. Campbell to be evicted. Call 1-800-732-6643 and press “4” to report fraud.

Dr. M. L. King Jr. Day: Together, we keep the DREAM alive.
On this special day, The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) affirms its unwavering commitment to protecting and advancing human rights and helping create a culture of respect for human rights. AHRC recognizes this day as a day of peace and unity where we join hands as we stand shoulder to shoulder building bridges of respect and understanding. 

The Flint and Detroit water crises are a violation of Michigan citizens’ human right to water:
Water is a basic necessity, not a market commodity or luxury
The American Human Council (AHRC-USA) joins the rest of the human rights community in expressing its deep concern over the city of Flint’s water crisis and its impact on the citizens of Flint. The Flint water crisis is a serious public safety concern that merits serious and urgent attention. The root cause of the crisis should be identified and those responsible need to be held accountable.
The Flint water crisis is part of a bigger water crisis in Michigan. The ongoing Detroit water issue and the thousands of poor residents who could not afford to pay for the water services are left without water, a most basic human necessity.
Water is not just another market commodity, it is a public good and a public service of vital importance. This importance was recognized by the UN General Assembly in Resolution 641292 passed on 28 July 2010 designating water and sanitation as human rights. A human being cannot enjoy all the other human rights they have unless they have access to clean and affordable water. As identified by the UN, this water has to be “sufficient,” “safe,” “acceptable,” “physically accessible” and “affordable.” The crises in Flint and Detroit indicate that the State of Michigan is not paying enough attention to water as a human right to a significant number of Michigan citizens.
AHRC calls upon all Michigan elected officials to rise above partisanship and deal with this most basic of human right. There is also the hazardous waste disposal issue that should be handled fairly. AHRC calls upon the federal, state and local government to work together to bring these crises to a resolution.
“We are deeply troubled that the great State of Michigan is not providing all its citizens with access to safe and affordable water,” stated Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive director. “Water is not a fungible good, it is a common good and a public service, whether one is rich or poor, they have the human right of access to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water- all goals set by the UN and applicable to all the nations on earth,” added Hamad.
