    Thank you everyone who made it! I understand that even though I changed the location of the event in the meetUp event info heading, yesterday to TBD and earlier this morning to the Farmers Market, that info did not show up for several people. At least one person went to the original location. I'll let MeetUp know -- it must be a bug. I am sorry if you did not find us. We did have six attendees -- including a producer from Marketplace and writer from FireDogLake -- thank you all for coming!

    for those who can't make it, here is an article I wrote in Dec detailing notes from a mortgage fraud summit that took place in Ontario. There were many heavy hitters there, and some important take-aways: http://www.huffingtonpost.c...­

    Bottom line, there has been tremendous fraud all through the system. There are many questions being raised as to the banks' legitimate ability to foreclose due to all the rampant fraud.

    I just came aware of this meeting, but unfortunately I can not attend.
    Hopefully other meetings will materialize and will be ongoing.
    How about meet at a popular park, meet on a Sunday?
    Call the media, get the word out on how the banks are screwing us, and plan to throw us out of our homes!
    My bank is Chase, and I've been trying to get a loan modification for nearly 16 months with nothing but a BIG runaround.
    Lets all keep in touch, lets all keep our homes!

    Update: Farmers market is a great idea -- thank you David! -- lots of open space. Let's meet in the West Patio near EB's Beer & Wine ... where they have the stage. We can find a few tables once we find each other. I'll have on a beige cap and jacket. (If you're running late and don't see us at the West Patio, look around the tables at the market for us, in case the West Patio didn't have enough space.) See you soon!

    should we just do a local coffee shop in the area? There's a Buzz Coffee on Beverly that isn't too far, or the Farmer's Market

    I will be there!

    Update: the blankspaces place isn't willing to do it for free, and with there being an estimated 5 attendees, it doesn't make sense to pay for a space, so I'm looking into other options. If you have a good suggestion, post it here asap please.

    Hi,

    Looks like I'm going to have to back out, because I can't be there much before 9:00 pm. If anyone is planning to be there at 9:00, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Trevor

    I'm suggesting this Blankspaces venue in Miracle Mile ... I'm waiting to hear back from them about what it might cost. A private home would work too. I'm thinking a cafe isn't really appropriate. Alternative could be one of the progressive spiritual centers in the area (Hollywood United Methodist or the Self Realization Fellowship, for example, though I don't have any contacts there.) If someone has other suggestions, please post.
