I am Executive Director of the Justice Reform Coalition (JRC), a civil rights advocacy and citizens over site organization headquartered in Sacramento, California. The JRC was founded in 2005. I am Reverend Director of the Order of Olufunmi since 1976 I am also acting as a Private Attorney General for our organization and person of interest and intervener in this matter.
For over 37 years the Full Circle Farm (7650 Reservoir Road) has been home to the Chow family and a spiritual center for many people. The Farm’s Founder wanted it so. In his own words: “We the family of the Full Circle Farm have been growers and producers of an alternative to commercial food and culture in the true organic tradition…We care about the quality of life and want to see more than just sugar beets growing on farms.” His son David “Tat” Chow has kept this tradition.
The Farm is a 3.5 acre grove on Reservoir Road, off of Garden Highway, near the airport in Sacramento, California. The Farm sits next to and protects one of the last little natural creek areas in Sacramento County. It also sits next to an area of importance to the local Native American community’s history. It has been under constant attack because greedy people want the land. This includes the Airport authorities and the golf course next door.
David Chow vs U.S. Bank (34-2010-0091102), involves U.S. Bank, American Home Mortgage Service, Inc (AHMSI), BNC, and others, who colluded to commit fraud by filling fraudulent loan documents. Without the consent of the owner and trustee of the property, David Chow, they granted a loan to David’s ex a loan in one week, using the Farm property as collateral. His ex had no standing or permission to use the property for collateral. She then divorced Mr. Chow after using the money to rebuild her business. In the beginning when Mr. Chow tried to return the funds, he couldn’t because AHMSI said he was not on the note, he was not the borrower and they refused to speak with him.
Mr. Chow was forced to make payments on a loan he did not want or need. AHMSI engaged in criminal practices such as sending payments to a “suspense account” instead of applying those payments to the loan account, and refusing to deal with the owner-trustee because he “isn’t the borrower”, even though his property was being used as collateral for a loan he did not authorize or sign for. Then filing an illegal foreclosure on the property that was at the time one and a half months over paid. Then getting a relief from stay by influencing Mr. Chow’s bankruptcy attorney to not inform Mr. Chow of an exparte’ hearing and then not appear herself, which allowed U.S. Bank to get to get a default judgment, relief from stay. Robert Jackson and Associates was U.S. Bank’s second attorney on this matter and were the one’s who filed the unlawful detainer actions and had Rosenberg and link handle the case locally. You will find these law firms’ names on countless foreclosure and evictions by U.S. Bank and others.
Mr. Chow, In Pro Se, filled a civil suit and injunction for fraud against U.S. Bank, which they never responded to. Instead they filed an unlawful detainer actions against Mr. Chow. They were heard illegally in unlawful detainer court. Since there were allegations of fraud and other misconduct , and the unlawful detainer court is a limited scope court, according to its own rules, the cases should not have been heard there. Because of the limited scope of this Court the true issues at hand could not be addressed there and judgment was given to U.S. Bank even though the Court was informed of the civil suit filed by Mr. Chow which is still pending.
In January of 2012 U.S. Bank threatened the Farm with another eviction attempt. This eviction was from an unlawful detainer action filed by U.S. Bank attorney Robert Jackson and Associates who are known legal scoundrels. It appears they did multiple UD filings on the same matter using the new electronic filing system only for attorneys doing UD’s and didn’t serve us one of them. This is double jeopardy and is illegal. This is another area where the Court failed its due diligence.
12UD00600, filed on 1/19/12, is the one we were served, which we responded to on 2/8/12 and they never moved forward on. But they had also filed UD1200055 earlier on 1/3/12 , which we were not served. This is the one they filed and got their default on, on 2/21/12. In order to hide this crime, someone in the Sheriff’s Department had scheduled the eviction for 6am that following Sunday. Can you believe that. We filed an injunction, and when we went to serve the Sheriff, we were told that the Sheriff had pulled the eviction because the “writ was improper”. The injunction was later denied with leave to refile, because we didn’t have all the paperwork we needed to file with it. We plan to re-file the injunction.
U.S. Bank refiled the writ in March and rescheduled the eviction. But Mr. Chow filed a chapter 7 which stayed the eviction. The stay was lifted do to failure to file one document timely. This was purely an over sight on our part. We had served a copy of the injunction on the Bank’s attorneys, and we received a letter that they were no longer the proper place to serve the Bank.
A few weeks later a man, Anthony Vasquez, came by the Farm to say he had purchased the Farm from U.S. Bank for $70,000. Mr. Chow told him that the property was in litigation and had a lis pendence on it. Anthony said he had not been told this by the Bank, only that the property was occupied. He then insisted that he had a “clear” title to the property. He was told that he couldn’t have a clear title under the circumstances because the Bank did not own the property. Mr. Chow asked him to show him the paperwork he had and he said he would. Their paper work consist of robo-doc paperwork generated by out of state entities already charged with fraud.
Chicago Title issued a bogus “clean title” report which was filed with the County Recorder and a title was issued to Vasquez. This is part of the paperwork used to get Mr Chow evicted.
- Vasquez was part of a dispensary closed down under suspicion of money laundering .
- Vasquez used drug money to purchase the property.
- Since the eviction the 11 residents of the Farm have not been allowed to get their property.
- They have been threatened verbally and at gun and knife point.
- Mr. Chow was assaulted by thugs at the Farm while trying to retrieve his property. They threatened his girlfriend who had just had a miscarriage the day after their eviction.
- One of Vasquez’s cronies tried to hire some people to “rough up” Mr. Chow. Fortunately some of the folks asked were friends of Mr. Chow’s so it didn’t happen.
- Vasquez and his cronies have ripped out old growth trees and many of the amenities which made the Farm what it was.
- Now they have committed arson and burned down the main house on the property. The fire is under investigation now.
- There is still a lis pendence on the property.
- The State Attorney General’s office has been notified about this situation and the Sacramento District Attorney Real
- Estate fraud division is being brought in.
- The civil suit mentioned above is being amended to include Mr. Vasquez
