What would you do if you discovered that a chain of mistakes and errors have occurred? You live at an address in town and it appears that a home mortgage company has listed your home address in an ad for an auction. Meanwhile lots of interested buyers are stopping by wanting to look at your house. They park out front and walk into your backyard to check things out, ring the doorbell to see if they can view the inside also asking personal questions while you’re at the door. And nobody is paying attention to what you are telling them about the mistake. You can’t find out who the mortgage company is or who to contact to stop the nightmare.

When you do find out who the company is – there is no one there who knows anything about the ads or why your house address was used. They can’t stop the two weeks of advertising in the newspapers and radio ads. People continue to come by to see your property, cars lined up for blocks continue to drive by; neighbors get angry with you and don’t believe what you tell them. The company that started the ads can’t stop them because the employee is no longer working for that agency. What do you do?

I would file for an ex-parte injunction and force the newspaper or ad agency to immediately cease advertising.

I think Twinkle Toes and I had about the same idea... go to the law! hit them in the pocket book. another idea is contact a local news station that likes to do those troubleshooting reports for citizen and put the newspaper and morgage company under the eyes of the camera themselves... plus add in a nicely worded letter to the governer, attny general etc.

I would set up cameras in the living room and introduce myself as Chris Hansen from "To catch a predator" and invite them in to talk.
