Fired worker says home foreclosure firm forged documents

Fired worker says home foreclosure firm forged documents:
"Attorneys and staff members forged signatures and changed dates, casually passed around notary stamps, and notarized stacks of blank documents to be filled in later, said the employee, Tammie Lou Kapusta, in an interview with attorney general's staff.

At the Law Offices of David J. Stern in Broward County, where Kapusta worked, long 'signing tables' were set up across eight floors and employees would process 250 documents per floor each day, she said during the interview.

Two or three employees sat around practicing the signature of Chief Financial Officer Cheryl Samons, at Samons' direction, Kapusta said.

Company lawyers were overheard saying they worried about breaking the law or getting disbarred, but Kapusta said they worried more about losing their jobs.

Toward the end of the interview, which was conducted under oath with Kapusta's attorney present, she also describes romantic relations among people who worked in the office, including Stern.
