Someone needs to say something about this! http://www.fakepaycheckstubs.com IS THIS LEGAL? No wonder why we have the subprime mess we have when lenders USE FAKE DOCUMENTATION to help PUSH the loan through Quickly SO THAT EVERYONE DOWN THE FOOD CHAIN (from loan processor to the loan officer to the actual lender) can make the commissions they "WERE" making during the booming 90's!!! Now we are BAILING OUT THESE CROOKS....SOUNDS LIKE the good ol' 1980's Savings and Loan BAILOUT DAYS to me! http://www.fakepaycheckstubs.com see it with YOUR OWN EYES!

REDUX: As a building inspector in Cincinnati, the neighborhoods here have been badly damaged by sub-prime mortgage problems as well as the house flipping that was so prevalent three or four years ago. Whole neighborhoods here now have comp-values 25% of what they were five and ten years ago. The vacant and abandoned houses are an economic drain as was outlined in your radio report. I don't seem to know how the market will self correct on this issue on near or short term. The loan practices over the past 7 years have been very strange. It is almost as if there were no regulations of the banking industry at the state and federal levels.
