From FB-90 year old woman foreclosed upon and evicted from home of 60+ yrs in reverse mortgage scam

MaryGSykes.com

For those of you even considering a Reverse Mortgage or wondering why they are such a scam, read on:

http://www.nj.com/mercer/index.ssf/2017/02/90-year-old_woman_prepares_for_eviction_from_home.html

The highlights of the article are:  woman takes out $180,000 loan after paying off equity credit line.  Home is worth $300,000.  Woman falls behind in tax payments which trigger automatic foreclosure for fail to pay taxes.

Next thing you know she is in foreclosure court.  But wait, there’s more. The loan has now, in 10 years, blossomed to a $300,000 balance. How did that happen?

I believe that once the foreclosure process has been started, even making the taxes current won’t stop the lender from foreclosing and taking the home.

What a lucrative way to do business!

The courts don’t seem to care and there are few regulations in place to allow elders and their families to get those tax payments current.

What a shame for this woman.

From FB: Ashton Kucher’s efforts to save children from Sex Trafficking

MaryGSykes.com

I know that a lot of people have contacted me about their families being affected by the Sex Trafficking industry.

Today on Facebook, I found the following video submitted by several concerned members:

Apparently Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are cofounders of Thorn which builds software to track down and eliminate sex traffickers.

I found the address of their nonprofit, Thorn, NFP, which is

Thorn nonprofit public benefit corporation CALIFORNIA 544 4th Street Manhattan Beach CALIFORNIA 90266

If you need help with your case, this charity might help and I commend these two fine actors for becoming involved in this field, where there seems to be no help for these victims.

From Candice Schwager–On Judicial Immunity–Sparkman v. Stump is actually an Indian Tribal Case!

MaryGSykes.com

On Feb 16, 2017, at 8:10 PM,
Indian Country is defined in Title 15.

The key case for Absolute Judicial Immunity is Spark v Stumpman. But both Spark and Stumpman were Native Americans living on the reservation. The Court Stumpman was a judge for was a tribal court, not an Indiana state court. Most lawyers don’t have a clue that the nations have their own civil and criminal laws. There is some state and federal overlap in the area of criminal law. Those are the major crimes act, the minor crimes act, the assimilative crimes act and Public Law 280. There is no state or federal overlap in tribal civil law jurisdiction. Under 1 Stat 20 section 34 the federal courts are required to use the law of the state for all state law claims. The federal court in Indiana had to use Native American civil law in resolving that…

From GSN Groups–End child brides in the US

MaryGSykes.com

While the US maligns other 3rd world countries regarding human rights abuses, we still have yet to fix our problems in our own backyard–and that is the serious problem with child brides.

If a girl is pregnant, with parental consent, a shocking 27 states have no law at which marriage is simply too young.

And a girl aged 17 or younger can be forced into a marriage she does not want, does not need and does not understand when she is young and has no real options to escape.

The US has to end child marriage NOW.  Girls can no longer be forced into marrying men, often those much older than themselves.  Many of these men will beat them, keep them at home without transportation, and the girl has no real escape options.  Children often grow up with a violent, distant father figure and are emotionally, if not physically scared…

From Ken Ditkowsky–Fixing the broken and trouble Cook County Probate System–where is Larkin on this?

MaryGSykes.com

Indeed, it is good to hear from you.   It is not good to be reminded thatIT IS UNSAFE TO GROW OLD IN AMERICA AND IN PARTICULAR COOK COUNTY, ILLINOIS.  So far, the Ill. Atty. Registration and Discipline Commission, headed by Jerome Larkin, is giving favored attorneys a pass on perfidy in the court room. Why these attorneys are not investigated is completely unknown at this time, because all probate lawyers and many general practice lawyers know this is a serious problem, yet nothing is done by the authorities and the ARDC is used to cover up the problem.   
Under Illinois law, and in particular 755 ILCS 5/11A – 3b the Illinois Legislature has made it clear that guardianship is not  an invitation to exploit and abuse under corrupt court supervision convenient elderly people. A guardianship is very strictly limited to essentially helping a disabled person…
