COLUMBUS, Ohio - Joseph Keller doesn't expect he'll live to see the end of 2013. He blames the house at 190 Avondale Avenue.

    OK, so the moral of the story is that if you are a deadbeat, don't move out until they throw you out.

    No the moral of the story is never go near a bank.

    If you can't afford to pay cash, don't buy.

    Yes, deadbeats who have congestive heart failure or a destroyed liver, who were deceived by a bank into believing their foreclosure was immenent. How come a bank that walks away from a house they are contractually obligated to sieze in foreclosure by terms of the mortgage are not deadbeats, but the person who they trick and trap are?

    Robber Scum has a point. Vulgarly said, but he is correct.

    There are a few big banks that have colluded with the Federal Reserve, a supra-governmental authority that is responsible for our money system. It truly is a secret entity unanswerable to authority and not fit for a democracy.

    The corruption of this system has filtered down through most levels of our society. Our government is despoiled by money. A very small minority has control over a majority of wealth and income.

    In a just society there would not be so many souls lost in the bureaucracies of the finance, insurance, real estate, and investment "industries".

    The real zombie here is the Fed. The Fed will be 100 years old this year. This secret society has far outlived its usefulness in the modern world. It's time for us to reclaim our democracy and restore liberty, justice, and freedom for all Americans.

    Five years ago, Keller, 10 months behind on his mortgage payments, received notice of a foreclosure judgment from JP Morgan Chase. In a few weeks, the bank said, his three-story house with gray vinyl siding in Columbus, Ohio, would be put up for auction at a sheriff's sale.

    Ten months behind and HE's the Victim?

    The 58-year-old former social worker...

    Oh that explains it, most social workers have the social skills of a boiled peanut.

    That's actually good advice. Far too many people move out when they are sent the foreclosure notice, but they don't have to. They should take advantage of the rent free housing the bank is providing. At the very least, protect the property until your evicted, and make sure you take pictures of the condition of the house the day before eviction. This way you'll have proof the condition you left it in, when the bank takes possession. If it's looted after wards, you'll have proof it not your fault.

    contractually obligated to sieze

    This article is one more reason why you absolutely shouldn't leave the home till after the foreclosure. If he stayed there, he could have lived for free just for maintaining the house... maybe forever.

    Actually, you should wait for the eviction notice. Sometimes banks and investors give you a cash bonus if you get out by said date without trashing the place first.
