Another NYTimes Letter

December 28, 2007

Dear Editor, I read the article in today’s paper and I think there can be nothing as important on the government’s agenda right now as the mortgage crisis. One person interviewed said that the victims are usually lenders that are able to write off their losses. I think he forgets about us, the borrowers. We are not able to just forget about things and go on with our lives. In most cases, we can’t. Back in 2002, I was a victim of mortgage fraud and even though I did everything to save my condo in Atlanta, it foreclosed in November 2005. Everything bad that can possibly happen to a person happened to me. For the first time in my life, I was in serious credit card debt, and I kept sinking and sinking. Over 5 years later, I am still paying the emotional, financial and psychological consequences of this personal tragedy. I think that we, the borrowers affected by the mortgage fraud cases, should be heard. Now I have no home and I don’t know if I will ever have one again. Eugenia Renskoff


One Year

December 28, 2007: He went out to the sidewalk, then pulled back to the apt. That afternon, he got up to drink some water and sat down in his place again. That was the last time he ever walked.

Chiquito Again

December 25, 2007

December 25, 2007: Yes, I still miss my little Pekingese dog. What kind of Christmas is he spending in Argentina? Is my neighbor taking him for long walks? If she is, I bet they are not as aristocratic as ours used to be. I wish Chiquito were here with me right now, keeping me company, spending time with me. He’d have a good time in Norfolk, VA.

Much Later

December 24, 2007

December 24, 2007: It won’t happen till later, until I don’t know when. I feel that the mortgage fraud thing was a horrible thing. I wish I could get over it, but I can’t. Not until I can actually see justice. That’s why I re sent the letter to the Attorney General in GA. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, is also getting a copy.


December 23, 2007

Sunday, December 23, 2007: I know it doesn’t matter. I am just a person, so I don’t count. I am not famous or rich. That makes it even worse because what happened in GA is not important. Another number, another sad story. But it is deeply important to me because I am suffering from its aftermath. I am still being chased by people for money I don’t have. My life now proves that debt is the most horrible thing to go through.


December 21, 2007

December 21, 2007: What is Chiquito doing now? Is he getting enough food, enough walks? Does he get his water changed everyday? I miss him very much and I had to leave him behind in Argentina. I also wish we could have our aristocratic walks again. Me and my little Pekingese dog.

Back Home

December 20, 2007

December 20, 2007: After a lot of stress, a failed airport trip and more, I am back in the US. Last Friday night, I went all the way to Ezeiza and was told I could not board the plane because my dog’s kennel was too small. What the United Airlenes guy did not tell me was that he could have rented me a bigger kennel. On Monday, the people were a lot nicer and I was finally on my way!


December 2, 2007

December 2, 2007: All he wants is a place to lie down, a little bit of food and fresh water. I look at him with his head resting against the front door and I understand him, my new old dog. He must have lived in a really nice place, with lots of kids running around. My small apt. must be quite a change for him.
