FOR some reason my friend could not post her response: HERE is a response from actual experience in application for review.>>>>>>>>I returned the Independent Foreclosure Review within two weeks of receiving it in February 2012. About three weeks later the "acknowledgement" letter was received, then nothing. On May 1, I sent a second packet to the Review board. It included a full & complete copy of the McCaffrey Securitization Report & the Horner Document Exam and a letter stating (among other things) that I believed I had been "duped into executing documents that appear to be part of a scheme to issue unregulated securities under false pretenses". I have still not gotten any response from the Review board. They do not give any solid time frames for resolution, so I will be calling every few weeks to check up on them. Send everything Certified Mail with a Return Receipt so there is no question they have received your documents. I am not sure if this will in fact result in anything, seems right now to be only a "show" for the public...but we shall see. I do believe that no matter what happens, it is worth the effort to lodge this complaint.
