The Congressman's websites lists a host of "Banks" who are requesting participants bring all their financial information like mortgage statements, bank statements and income statements including taxes and W2's. Bill Trudelle a 20 year mortgage professional who has led the fight against foreclosure fraud states: "I highly advise against anyone bringing such personal info to such a public forum, particularly to the very parties who screwed up Florida. Interestingly enough, there is not a single mortgage broker listed on the congressman's website. I state this because only a mortgage broker can be hired to represent YOU. The Banker can only represent the Bank and the Banks best interest, keep this mind if you or someone you know attends this function.
