BOCA RATON, Fl. - Thousands of homeowners in South Florida are fighting to keep their homes in the wake of the robo-signing foreclosure scandal.
Thousands more have already lost their houses.
"We never did anything wrong from the start. We got caught up in the system," said Lavoid Johnson, a homeowner in Boca Raton.
Johnson and his wife Lisa are fighting to hold on to their dream after they say foreclosure paperwork moved through the Palm Beach County court system without their knowledge.
Lavoid says they sent their payments but for some reason the money was not received properly by the mortgage service provider back in 2008.
After receiving help from Deerfield Beach based Ticktin Law Group, the Johnsons learned a 9 page court affidavit was being pushed through the court system, with what the Johnson’s lawyer believes to be a robo-signed signature.
Johnson said, "If you're going to tell me that you have a middle person that has actually signed that document, I have more anger, I have more concerns because it tells me that we're not the only ones."
The Johnsons are hardly the only ones
