Caylin is a research technician and wildlife rehabilitator who has lived in her home for 4 years. After a snowboarding injury and subsequent illness threatened Caylin’s income, she contacted US Bank to apply for a loan modification. Caylin was told that, in order to qualify, she needed to be delinquent on her payments. Within three months, the bank had foreclosed on her home without any explanation relating to the modification. Then, just seven days after agreeing not to sell the house, US Bank sold Caylin’s home!
Approaching 18 months of negotiations, US Bank and Freddie Mac have refused to cooperate with Caylin. Settlement offers that were proposed by the bank and were gladly accepted by Caylin have been denied without explanation. Caylin has pledged to stay in her home not just for herself but for her entire community.
“I’m not leaving my home. I am making a pledge to stand up to the banks and make sure this never happens to anybody else. This grievous abuse of our lending system stops here! “ -Caylin Crawford
