Chain of Title: How Ordinary People in Three Countries Uncovered Foreclosure Fraud


Tuesday, December 19th, from 6pm - 7:30pm GMT


Online via Zoom.


There'll be a great line-up of speakers plus ample scope for discussion and debate.

Why You Should Attend...

This event has been inspired by David Dayen’s book, Chain of Title, which is about how in the depths of the Great Recession, a cancer nurse, a car dealership worker, and an insurance fraud specialist helped uncover the largest consumer crime in American history―a scandal that implicated dozens of major executives on Wall Street. 

They called it foreclosure fraud: millions of families were kicked out of their homes based on false evidence by mortgage companies that had no legal right to foreclose.

Lisa Epstein, Michael Redman, and Lynn Szymoniak did not work in government or law enforcement. They had no history of anti-corporate activism. 

Instead they were all foreclosure victims, and while struggling with their shame and isolation they committed a revolutionary act: closely reading their mortgage documents, discovering the deceit behind them, and building a movement to expose it.

Through his book, David Dayen recounts how these ordinary Floridians challenged the most powerful institutions in America armed only with the truth―and for a brief moment they brought the corrupt financial industry to its knees.

We’ll be hearing David, who will be providing a fascinating insight into what happened in the USA; but we’ll also be hearing from others with deep subject-matter expertise who’ll be providing insights into how similar scandals have been unfolding in the Republic of Ireland and in the UK. 

As such, this event will be of major interest to Mortgage Prisoners, Registry Fraud victims, banking misconduct victims, victims of malpractice by Vulture Funds and so on.

Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, when we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or too frightened, when we fail to speak up and speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice.
