What Is Your State Doing With the $25 Billion Mortgage Fraud Fund?

The United States Federal government and 49 states came to an agreement in 2012 with five of the largest mortgage lenders in the country for mortgage lending fraud. Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo was ordered to pay $25 billion to the Attorney General office of all the states but Oklahoma. Oklahoma opted out of this settlement to pursue their own agreement with less regulations.
Will the actual victims of the mortgage fraud receive any of the $25 billion? Sadly not all. The settlement says each state can allocate the funds at their discretion. Only a handful of states will do the right thing. Other states will distribute the funds elsewhere.
