Bogus Process Servers Imperil Florida Homeowners

The residential real estate market is besieged by many problems.  Another problem emerging and finally getting noticed is the problem of bogus service upon homeowners/borrowers.  (Thanks to Kimberly Miller of the Palm Beach Post for bringing this to my attention.)

Bad service of process means a court case proceeds, often with the homeowner totally unaware of it.

Bogus service -- or more accurately, false or fraudulent service -- constitutes obstruction of justice and perpetuates a fraud upon the court and all its participants.  Bogus service is one element in a series of events that can allow a bank to literally steal someone's home, even when the homeowner is making payments in full or, even worse, has no mortgage in the first place!
