I too, have been a victim of Wells Fargo's. When they were Norwest, I tried to do a streamline refinance. They sent me BLANK settlement statements and told me to sign them, requesting $6,000 in the form of a cashier's check, with no explanation. I refused, and we ended up doing a "modification". They lost my paperwork for 5 months, and the day they found it, they also started foreclosure. I had to file bankruptcy to avoid this. That was 1999.
In 2000, they tried again, but were stopped by the judge. In 2002, they did get a release from motion of stay, and started again. It was sheer fortune that my mom had $9,000 available on her credit card. So, I was lucky and am still in my house. In reading the posts, I was disgusted to see that the Dept. of Corporations finally decided they did have the ability to go after WF, because I filed two complaints with them, and each time they said they did not govern them... The Federal Trade Commission stated I have the right to sue for about 5 violations of the Ca Fair Debt and Collection Act, but I can't get an attorney to take my case with any money down, and I have none...
If anyone wants to fight Wells Fargo, I'm IN !!!

Your story sounds just like Lynette's!
I wished I knew of any decent lawyers who don't just waste your money. How about you send your complaint to the OCC, post a copy here and tell them so?
They ARE the WF regulators and I'd love to see what THEY have to say.
