Comments on: 76-year-old woman fights Fannie Mae Chicago Community Stories Thu, 03 Apr 2014 01:18:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: Crystal Tue, 29 Jan 2013 00:04:29 +0000 She spent $2500 to pay an attorney who did nothing for her. That’s a problem right there. Elder abuse possibly?

How would she not know the money wasn’t being applied to her mortgage? Wouldn’t a higher than normal balance be a clue? It would be interesting to know how far behind she was and whether the $2500 she spent to hire a worthless attorney could have been better spent paying her delinquency.

The fact that she has lymphoma is something that FNMA should take special regard to prior to foreclosing on this home. They could offer a deed for lease to give her time. I believe FNMA does offer this option.
