You definitely need to speak with a lawyer.
In fact, you needed to speak with a lawyer back in 1993. Like Jim Locker I’m amazed that you simply “knuckled under” if you had actually paid the payments as set forth in your mortgage.
What bothers me here is that you evidently agreed to this proposition that you give them mortgages on 3 other homes PLUS the mortgage on the original home. You then lose the original home in 1996, and then lose the other 3 homes later. All this evidently without a word from you. And you’re just now wondering whether this is fraud?
At this point one wonders whether your acquiescence to all of these activities without a word from you has somehow legitimized these transactions (assuming that they took place the way you say they did). Didn’t it occur to you at some point after during the course of losing 4 houses that MAYBE you should seek out some legal advice???
Do so immediately. Time to stand up and be counted Tom.
