Please share poor Vinia's story on Facebook!
The greed of Big Banks has gotten so out of hand that even a 103-year-old woman is not exempt. Vinia Hall and her 83-year-old daughter Kathelyn Cornelius have been threatened with eviction papers constantly since 2009. Apparently, Vinia's grandson Ali Muhammad was able to take out a loan from JPMorganChase on Vinia's house without her consent, making it unaffordable for Vinia and her daughter.
Since this story broke yesterday and went viral, Vinia Hall and her daughter have been informed by JPMorganChase bank that they "will work out a resolution to keep them in the home." The harassment has ceased only because the bank needs to find someone else to kick Vinia out. How long before she's threatened once again?
The Halls have lived in that house for 53 years. The stress of the eviction reportedly sent Vinia's daughter to the hospital. Vinia left Deutsche Bank this heartbreaking message: "Please don't come in and disturb me no more. When I'm gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to." More information here.
Although Deutsche Bank foreclosed on the property, they claim that Chase Bank administers the loan and Deutsche Bank has no responsibility. Both banks should do the right think and allow the Halls to remain in their home. Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase, write off poor Vinia Hall's house and allow her to live out her remaining days at home with her daughter in peace.
Thank you all for signing the petition asking Vinia Hall's bank to leave her alone. Because of your voice and other outside pressures, JPMorgan Chase has announced it has "no plans" to remove Hall and her daughter. However, another elderly victim needs your help on the West Coast: http://bit.ly/vIjNZt
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
