Occupy Wall Street is still going strong as the latest offshoot Occupy Our Homes is already making waves. December 6th is day of protest over the many crimes in fraudclosure and Bank of America, who has committed widespread fraud in the housing market, is rightly scared:
Today, the Occupy Wall Street movement is taking part in a series of actions they’ve called “Occupy Our Homes,” aimed at preventing foreclosures and protecting those still struggling to keep their homes amidst the lingering effects of the Great Recession. ThinkProgress’ Zaid Jilani explained one of the planned actions here.
At least one major mortgage lender is taking the Occupy Our Homes movement quite seriously. In an email obtained and posted by the financial website Zero Hedge, Bank of America’s field services operation warned about Occupy activities, saying “we need to be prepared” and advising bank representatives against interacting with protesters:
On Tuesday December 6th there is a potential nationwide protest planned that could impact our industry. We believe protests will likely take place tomorrow at auction sites, homes that are being foreclosed, homes in the eviction stage and vacant homes. We need to be prepared.
1. Your safety is our primary concern, so do not engage with the protesters.
2. While in neighborhoods, please take notice of vacant BAC Field Services managed homes and ensure they are secured.
