Desperate Homeowner contacts the Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates Minutes before their Foreclosure Trustee Sale to force a Postponement, & wind up getting the permanent Loan Modification they were previously rejected several times!
COSTA MESA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 19, 2018
Mario Talamante and his family had lived in their Los Banos California home since 1994. Like so many across the nation Mario had experienced some hardship and reached out to his lender for help only to be rejected. He received a Notice of Default on 10/04/2017. Mario Talamate refused to give up and was willing to do everything possible to keep his family’s home. Mario tried again to reapply for help from his lender, this time paying a so called professional for assistance ending with the same result. Now Mario received a Notice of Trustee Sale on 1/12/2018 and his home was now going to be auctioned off on 2/06/2018.
According to current statistics mortgage defaults have had a recent spike with the trend predicted to be a continuing concern. Since the expiration of Government subsidized Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) it is apparent that lenders are more difficult to work with than they have been for the previous several years.
With the Trustee Sale scheduled in just a few days Mario was directed to the website http://www.NACAlaw.org that belongs to the Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates, a Faith Based Not for Profit Legal Clinic focused on financial literacy and homeownership preservation. Only charging an upfront fee of 4 bags of canned goods or nonperishables that get donated to the Homeless to get them started, the nonprofit uses a proprietary loss mitigation software that allows them to submit a properly restructured mortgage proposal that meets the lender's Net Present Value requirements. When they secure a permanent re-structured loan they ask for a generous donation to be made to Veterans First, a separate local Not for Profit Organization that helps feed and house homeless neglected U.S Veterans.
The Nonprofit Legal Clinic’s Senior Legal Services Director Attorney Peter Nisson, who is a 44 year Veteran Litigation Appellate Trail Attorney is just one of the various contributing factors that continue to make the Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates such a blessing to so many desperate homeowners. Retired Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled I.R.S Agents, Real Estate Brokers, Direct Mortgage Bankers, Private Investment Firm and Hedge Fund representatives as well as a small army of volunteer consumer advocates and loss mitigation specialists all play a key role in stopping Trustee Sales by submitting their comprehensive Loss Mitigation Foreclosure Alternative proposal packages to the foreclosing lender that more often than not wind up with a permanently rehabilitated loan.
Mr. Mario Talamante’s Lender refused to voluntarily stop the Trustee Sale at the last minute to review the Nonprofit’s Legal Clinics Loss Mitigation package so Attorney Peter Nisson gave his recommendation to have Mr. Talamante consider having Consumer Defense Law Group http://www.CDlawgroup.com file an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order based on a violation of the Homeowners consumer rights. Fortunately for the Talamante Family, Mario took Attorney Peter Nisson’s advice and engaged Attorney Tony Cara’s Consumer Defense Law Group, PC.
On 04/01/2018 Mr Mario Talamante made his first modified house payment of only $1,803.03 plus taxes and insurances and his newly rehabilitated loan is now current with a fixed interest rate from a formally adjustable delinquent loan in default. Reported by PRWeb 18 hours ago.

While there, he was responsible for developing, auditing and updating training curriculum, as well as training in tactics, techniques, and procedures in land warfare environment. Following his discharge, Quitmeyer became an instructor in firearms tactics for police officers and military units.

Enables organizations to meet training requirements of the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) August 20, 2018
Traliant, an innovator in online compliance training for the modern workforce, today announced the availability of a New York City edition of its industry-leading Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training. The NYC version covers all the training requirements mandated under the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act, a package of bills to address and prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the legislation in May.
The legislation requires NYC employers with 15 or more workers to conduct sexual harassment training for all employees − including interns, supervisors and managers− within their first 90 days of employment, and then annually.
For more information about the NYC Edition of Preventing Discrimination and Harassment please visit: Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act Training.
“The NYC edition of our Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training provides organizations with an online training program that meets or exceeds the standards set by the new laws − and it’s easy to deploy and measure engagement,” said Mike Pallatta, Traliant CEO and Co-Founder. “The other benefit is that employees get a positive training experience that both educates and motivates individuals to recognize different forms of harassment and take appropriate action to stop it.”
Traliant’s sexual harassment training integrates bite-sized modules and interactive videos to explore the topics required under NYC’s new laws: sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and bystander intervention. Other timely topics such as diversity and inclusion, unconscious bias and workplace civility are also covered. Like all Traliant courses, the NYC Edition of Preventing Discrimination and Harassment focuses on raising awareness and influencing positive behavior – important steps in creating a safe, respectful, harassment-free workplace.
Traliant was founded by industry veterans from some of the world’s most successful compliance training companies to meet the challenge of transforming compliance training from boring to brilliant. Backed by Martinson Ventures, Traliant delivers immersive, bite-sized training on an eLearning platform that enables fast and easy customization.

The district court of Gautam Budh Nagar on Monday granted bail to the 76-year-old colonel who was arrested on charges of molestation levelled by the Muzaffarnagar's additional district magistrate Harish Chandra's wife following a spat between the two sides over an alleged illegal construction by the ADM's family. Both the ADM and his wife are on the run.
On Monday evening, retired colonel Virendra Pratap Singh Chauhan returned home and was greeted by the residents upon reaching Arun Vihar in Sector 29. The colonel had been in Luksar jail since his arrest on August 14.
"The entire Arun Vihar is my home and I want to thank all my neighbours for standing with him in the tough time. The public support gave me strength. I know the truth will come out eventually," said Chauhan who was accompanied by his family.
On August 14, the 76-year-old retired Colonel was arrested on charges of molestation levelled by the ADM's wife following a spat between the two sides over alleged illegal construction by the ADM's family.
A resident alleged that Chauhan had a dispute of illegal occupation and construction by ADM Harish Chandra for the past three years.
Chandra is his neighbour in Sector 29 and is currently the ADM in Muzaffarnagar. He was also an officer of Noida Authority in the past. Colonel Virender had lodged a complaint several times in Noida Authority regarding illegal occupation and construction but Noida Authority did not take any action on Chandra due to his clout.
"On August 14, the colonel was sitting in front of the park and was waiting for the cab to go to Agra. Chandra reached the park with his wife Usha. They were accompanied by Chandra's security guards," said a resident.
The gunner and the house help of the ADM were arrested on Sunday for assaulting and attempting to murder Chauhan.
Locals demand that the illegal construction done by Chandra should be demolished by the Authority and an income tax inquiry should also be initiated against him. Several Army veterans and Chauhan's family had taken out a protest march in Sector 29 on Saturday demanding the immediate release of the retired colonel from jail and arrest of the accused ADM. The colonel's family had also filed a cross-FIR on August 19.
Locals had earlier alleged that the whole incident had been handled carelessly. A sub-inspector, who was the police post-in-charge for Arun Vihar, was earlier suspended on August 18 for his failure to collect the evidence on spot.

Profits from new coffee blend to benefit veteran nonprofit Bunker Labs
WEST CHESTER, Pa. (PRWEB) August 21, 2018
West Chester, PA-based PrimePay, LLC and Philadelphia, PA-based Horn & Hardart Coffee have joined forces to support our nation’s military veterans.
Aug. 20 was the launch of a combined giveaway, celebrating the launch of Horn & Hardart’s newest brew, Bunker Blend. Those that enter will have a chance to win a bag of Bunker Blend, two handcrafted Horn & Hardart mugs, plus a $250 VISA gift card provided by PrimePay.
This dark roast coffee was made by veterans, to support veterans. Half of the blend’s profits benefit Bunker Labs Philadelphia – a national nonprofit built by veteran entrepreneurs to empower other veterans as leaders in innovation.
“When I was introduced to Bunker Labs 18 months ago, it was a cathartic experience for me. I had never been involved with a group of veterans. And that this was a young, bright, cadre of entrepreneurs has made it an enriching experience for me. Bunker Blend is my small contribution to supporting Bunker Labs Philadelphia. It's my hope that we can make it a best seller,” Al Mazzone, Vietnam veteran and CEO of Horn & Hardart shared.
PrimePay’s team echoed those sentiments.
“Partnering with Bunker Labs Philadelphia has been inspiring to our entire team across the country. A big portion of our Veterans in Business program is a give back initiative that focuses on veterans in our local communities. We are thrilled that Bunker Labs introduced us to the connection with Horn & Hardart and we can launch this contest together to promote the great work Bunker Labs does,” said PrimePay CEO Bill Pellicano.
Philadelphia natives are no stranger to the Horn & Hardart name. Its roots date back to 1888 when Joe Horn and Frank Hardart opened a small coffee shop in the city. In 1902, the company opened its first automat (a restaurant where you order fresh food and coffee out of a vending machine-like kiosk) in Philly.
Fast forward to 2017, when Mazzone and family revived this vintage chain, and continue to produce the same great coffee that once delighted consumers in two of America’s largest cities.
PrimePay, a national provider of payroll and HR, recently launched its Veterans in Business initiative. Lead by US Navy SEAL Monty Heath, the company looks to work closely with veteran small business owners and help them run their business smoothly.
In addition to its philanthropic efforts, feature stories on veteran-owned clients, and sponsoring organizations like Bunker Labs, PrimePay hopes this giveaway will further solidify its support for the veteran community.
Together with Horn & Hardart, PrimePay looks for this giveaway to bring great coffee, a great connection, and great awareness to the Bunker Brew and Bunker Labs.
“With PrimePay's presence in all 50 states, I think the giveaway will reach a wide, diverse audience. That fits well with Horn & Hardart's history and mission,” said Mazzone.
The contest is social media-centric, so head to Facebook.com/PrimePayUS or Instagram.com/PrimePay to get the full details. The contest will run through Sept. 20 and winners will be announced at Bunker Labs’ annual Muster event.
PrimePay believes in the power of small business.
Since 1986, PrimePay has been helping small businesses get time back in their day to focus on what matters most. This is possible through their payroll, HR, Time Clock and benefits admin services that help to ensure compliance and provide exceptional support during the employee lifecycle.

Founded by US Marine Corps veterans William McNulty and Jacob Wood in 2010, Team Rubicon is an international non-government organization (NGO) and veteran led organization that deploys disaster response teams around the world following natural catastrophes or humanitarian crises. With over 80,000 volunteer members across the country, Team Rubicon has deployed on over 280 responses since 2010. In just the last three months, nearly 2,000 veterans have embarked on missions to assist close to 10,000 people impacted by disasters worldwide.
The organization seeks to provide veterans with the purpose, community, and identity they gained and enjoyed during their time in active service. By joining a new mission, many veterans regain a sense of belonging through their commitment to service and passion for helping others.
"Team Rubicon is proud and thankful for the support from a company like GovX," said Matt Scott, Deputy Director of Development Operations. "We've already seen how their community has begun to rally around Team Rubicon and we’re excited they chose us as the beneficiary for GovX Gives Back. It's companies like GovX that allow our impact to grow every year."
The fundraiser for Team Rubicon is the inaugural effort of GovX Gives Back, a new phase of GovX's support for veterans and uniformed professionals. The GovX community has a four-year history of supporting military and first responder nonprofits. With the support of members, GovX has donated nearly $200,000 to organizations such as the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund, FirefighterAid, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and many others.
"The GovX community takes care of our own," said Alan Cole, GovX CEO. "That's why we're rallying the troops to raise even more in support of purpose-driven organizations like Team Rubicon, and every year that lies ahead."
GovX members can donate to Team Rubicon by visiting the CrowdRise fundraising page. In order to be eligible for a chance win the $5,000 GovX shopping spree, one must be a verified member of the GovX community. The fundraiser will conclude on October 31st. See full promotion rules.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (PRWEB) August 21, 2018
DigitalPhone.io, a pioneering hosted telecommunications firm that will celebrate its 20-year anniversary in 2019, announced that it recently completed an important and highly rewarding engagement with The Servant Center.
Based in Greensboro, NC, The Servant Center’s mission is to empower the homeless and disabled, particularly Veterans, so they can become independent and contributing members of the community through housing, healthcare and restorative services.
The engagement involved installing 22 IP phones in The Servant Center’s new office space, and designing a brand new network topology to connect all locations on a single, centralized and streamlined telecommunications system. The DigitalPhone.io team also helped representatives from The Servant Center learn how to use a range of advanced, yet easy-to-use cloud telephone system phone features such as voicemail-to-email, auto attendant, instant messaging and more.

“While there are many reasons that I’m proud to work at DigitalPhone.io, on top of the list is our commitment to helping many nonprofit organizations, such as through our ongoing participation in the annual Greensboro Extreme Nonprofit Makeover,” commented Rob Mitchell, Business VoIP Sales Engineer at DigitalPhone.io. “As a Marine Corps Veteran, our engagement with The Servant Center was particularly meaningful to me. Now that they have a state-of-the-art telecommunications system, The Servant Center is not only saving money, but they can provide even more service and support to Veterans that need their help. It was a very rewarding experience, and will always be near and dear to my heart!”
“We were extremely happy with our experience with DigitalPhone.io,” commented Stacey Kyser, Director of Marketing and Development at The Servant Center. “Our agency is service-based, so communication is a critical component of our programs. DigitalPhone.io had us up and running quickly, and made the transition to the new system easy for our employees. DigitalPhone.io was able to get some of the equipment at cost and the technicians donated some of the installation cost, which was a huge savings.”
