Modern Day Rosa Parks Jailed As Domestic Terrorist:
God-Fearing Woman Exposes Foreclosure Fraud

When: Monday, June 24, 2014, 8:30 a.m.

Ignoring well-documented cases of fraud and abuse that continue to plague the home
mortgage industry, the City of Ontario Police Department has instead set its sites on
Barbara Bratton, 55, jailed as a domestic terrorist for challenging the validity of property
records used to foreclose on her home. A pre-preliminary conference is set for Monday,
June 24 at 8:30 a.m. in San Bernardino Superior Court, 351 N. Arrowhead San
Bernardino, CA. 92415. Homeowners' rights advocates will be on hand to show their
Barbara Bratton, a life-long resident of Ontario, California and an
outstanding community member, was the victim of an illegal foreclosure on her family
home of 40 years. Since 2008 she has conducted a tireless and well-documented
campaign to expose the land title fraud on her home. An important piece in this complex
case came last year, when a Lending Processing Services (LPS) executive pled guilty to
filing more than a million fraudulent property documents in county recorder’s offices
across the country. The fraud on the Bratton home was linked to the suit. Yet the LPS
scheme masked a more insidious crime: the securitization of nearly all home loans since
1996, making it impossible to determine who, if anyone, actually owns the note on a
To back up her case, Ms. Bratton began working with San Bernardino County Recorder
Dennis Draeger and his staff to conduct a thorough search of the property records on
her home. In a signed declaration authorized by Draeger, his custodian of records
concluded that the involved parties lacked the authority to foreclose on the Bratton
home. To set the record straight, Ms. Bratton filed a corrective deed at the County
Recorder’s office on April 11, 2013 – a preliminary step towards gaining court
recognition of fraudulent foreclosure. To insure proper procedure, she asked the
Secretary of State’s office to validate the document with their seal before filing with the
county recorder. For additional insurance, she attached a copy of her 2012 notice to the
police of title fraud with her request to have them investigate (a request they ignored.)
Ms. Bratton’s actions to correct property records on the family home were fully above
board, with no intent to harm or defraud. The City of Ontario’s punitive efforts to
defame Ms. Bratton reveals how desperate officials are to ignore the fraud that
continues to pollute property records in a county with some of the highest foreclosure
rates in the country. Until property records are corrected, judges will continue to
sanction illegal foreclosures, and the perpetrators will go unpunished.
On Dec 2, 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus and segregation came

to an end. She died with honors in 2005, a few months after Barbara Bratton was given
a predatory loan by "lender" Franklin Financial. Homeowners’ rights advocates will be on
hand for the hearing at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, June 24 to show their support for Barbara
Bratton in her fight for justice on behalf of hundreds of thousands of homeowners who
have become unwitting victims of fraudulent foreclosure practices.
Barbara Bratton has been charged with 5 felony counts: 2 violations of Penal Code
Section 460(d) forgery, and 2 counts of PC 115(a) procuring and offering false or forged
instrument. She has also been charged with one count of PC 459 second degree
burglary. Law enforcement authorities are alleging she is a domestic terrorist. Bail was
set at $250.000.
