Affidavit STATE OF NEW YORK COUNTY OF BRONX

) ) ss.: )

I, MIRIAM SNYDER a resident of the Bronx at all times during this matter is an alleged defendant and crime victim in the above wrong venue lawsuit. I declare, verify, and affirm the following to be true, under the penalty of perjury pursuant to Penal Law Section 210.45 that the following statements of fact are true based on my personal knowledge.

1. I am the named alleged defendant in the above titled matter. I am over the age of 18 years and have been for the last 10 years and currently a resident of Bronx, New York.

2. The Alleged Defendant, Miriam Snyder, submits this affidavit in support of my attached motion to dismiss. 3. The Alleged Defendant, Miriam Snyder, moves to dismiss the complaint for lack of jurisdiction and improper service pursuant to CPLR 3211(a)(8) 4. This is a frivolous law suit because it has no standing, no authentication, no independent basis for liability, no contract, no joinder, no agreement and is being entertained in the NYS court system with another patterned and practiced Rubin and Rothman falsified affidavit of service. The plaintiff’s falsified affidavits are attached as exhibit 4-8.

5


5. Proof of the plaintiff’s history of filing falsified affidavits of service and non-meritorious law suits in NYS courts is attached as exhibits 10B-12 in the Reply affidavit dated September 32012. 6. The alleged defendant was not served at all. The alleged Defendant Miriam Snyder had to retrieve a copy of the Plaintiff’s frivolous complaint from the courts in order to defend herself from this documented fraud, legal malpractice, misrepresentation and abuse. The plaintiff’s summons is attached as exhibit 4. The court retrieved, non-verified and frivolous, plaintiff complaint is attached as exhibit 5. 7. The alleged defendant Miriam Snyder has no business relations, contract, and or agreement with Rubin and Rothman disguised as the fictitious Plaintiff Ford Motor Credit. 8. In the complaint filed, Marianne Stahl, law license # 2842581, an unknown attorney alleges to be the attorney for the Plaintiff. However, I have not seen any evidence in fact nor do I believe that any exist that attorney Marianne Stahl the unknown attorney has been lawfully authorized by Plaintiff to sue on Plaintiff’s behalf thereby lacking standing in this matter. 9.

Marianne Stahl the attorney from out of thin air, allegedly representing plaintiff stated on the complaint that, “WE ARE DEBT COLLECTORS”. However, according to section 20490 of the New York City Administrative Code, it is deemed unlawful for any person operating as a debt collector without a license. I have not seen any record that attorney Marianne Stahl, alleged attorney for Plaintiff hold or possess a license in compliance with all applicable law, rules and regulation governing debt collectors pursuant to the above section.

10. The Plaintiff alleges that the debt is based upon an auto “agreement”. However, I have no record, knowledge or belief that a contract “agreement”, exist between the Plaintiff and alleged Defendant, nor has there been any evidence of such presented to the courts or to me. Furthermore, Plaintiff has also failed to disclose the date when this alleged “agreement” was signed and entered into by the parties thereby making it impossible for Defendant to mount a defense on the statute of limitation. 11. I have no record, or competent evidence of any stipulations signed and agreed upon by Plaintiff and alleged Defendant. 12. I am not in receipt of any document which verifies that I owe Plaintiffs any money. 13. I am not in receipt of any document which verifies that any of the alleged plaintiffs authorized suit against me or are even aware of it. 14. I am not in receipt of a plaintiff’s joinder or novation contract and or agreement.

15. Plaintiffs alleged attorneys have not proven with certified documentation (contract or written agreement) establishing representation and agency with regards to plaintiff. 6


16. Plaintiffs’ attorney cannot complain for plaintiff without agency proven. Without certified documentation from plaintiff establishing agency, plaintiff’s attorneys are barred from proceeding forward in this matter, and the jurisdiction of the court is not complete and the action must be dismissed. 17. There is no way of knowing if Marrianne Stahl, the unknown attorney, criminally subterfuging for Keith Rothman and allegedly plaintiff’s attorney, is a true agent for Plaintiff and or is the Plaintiff.

18. Without Marianne Stahl establishing agency, the complaint is void since there is no proof to support the allegations. 19. Agency is proven, not stated.

20. The alleged Plaintiff has not proffered any evidence to support the complaint. 21. The complaint, without agency established, is fatally obstructive. 22. The alleged defendant has not received any notice of the alleged debt prior to the instant action. Notwithstanding the fact that the alleged defendant does not owe anything, plaintiff had a duty to first notify the alleged defendant of the alleged debt before filing the frivolous unverified complaint. 23. The plaintiff has failed to establish an independent basis for liability.

24. It is a well-established rule that an attorney for a plaintiff or defendant cannot testify or advance allegations of truth for the plaintiff or defendant without supporting averments from the plaintiff or defendant being included in the record.

25. There are no averments from plaintiff to support the allegations advanced by alleged counsel for plaintiff.

26. If plaintiff were in possession of the original agreement from the original creditor, plaintiff would have been able to render a verifiable complaint. 7


27. It is now evident and fact that the attorney for the alleged plaintiff has filed a frivolous complaint, nor does she have a valid joinder to or with the alleged lenders. 

Attorneys CANNOT testify.

Statements of counsel in brief or in argument are never facts before the court.

Before any determination, there must be a court of complete or competent jurisdiction.

There must be two parties with capacity to be there.

There must be subject matter jurisdiction.

Appearance or testimony of a competent fact witness.

28. Marrianne Stahl the out of thin air attorney is in clear violation of the Rules of the Chief Administrative Judge PART 130: Costs and Sanctions: Section 130-1.1 I by failing to certify the complaint in accordance with Section 130-1.1 (a) (b) where it states: “(b) Certification. By signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person’s knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in section 130-1.1 (c)”.of this Subpart, and (2) where the paper is an initiating pleading, (i) the matter was not obtained through illegal conduct, or that if it was, the attorney or other persons responsible for the illegal conduct are not participating in the matter or sharing in any fee earned there from, and (ii) the matter was not obtained in violation of 22 NYCRR 1200.41-a [DR 7-111]”. 29. It is a well-established rule that an attorney for alleged Plaintiff or defendant cannot advance allegations of truth for the alleged Plaintiff or defendant without supporting averments from the alleged Plaintiff or defendant being entered into the record. In this case failed to establish standing to sue in this or any Court by failing to show this court evidence of injury or damages introduced by a competent fact witness. The alleged plaintiff and the attorneys purporting to represent alleged plaintiff have established fraud, misrepresentation, illegality, deceit and unconsciousability.

30. Their complaint caption states that it is a verified complaint when in fact it is not. There has been no original documentation placed in to the record and the first claim the alleged Plaintiff is “alleging” thereby failing to state a claim for which relief can be granted. Pursuant to CPLR §1001 it is necessary for attorneys to establish a joinder of parties to the Plaintiff. 8


31. Paragraphs TWO TO FOUR of the complaint are ambiguous and confusing. I do not know what I allegedly did or what I allegedly did not do.

32. Based on paragraph FOUR of the complaint, I do not know if I or an agent took money advances under an auto loan or line of credit account or promissory note/loan.

33. If plaintiff were in possession of the original agreement from the original creditor, plaintiff would have been able to render more definite statements in paragraphs TWO, THREE, AND FOUR of the complaint.

34. There is no specificity in paragraphs TWO TO FOUR rendering the complaint defective for failing to state a cause of action.

35. CPLR § 3013 states, in relevant part: Particularity of statements generally. Statements in a pleading shall be sufficiently particular to give the court and parties notice of the transactions, occurrences, or series of transactions or occurrences, intended to be proved and the material elements of each cause of action or defense.

36. CPLR § 3014 states in relevant part: Statements. Every pleading shall consist of plain and concise statements in consecutively numbered paragraphs… (emphasis added) 37. Based on the way plaintiff’s paragraphs are written, specifically, PARAGRAPHS TWO TO FOUR, they are ambiguous and I will not be able to adequately answer the complaint.

38. The complaint is so vague, ambiguous and defective; I cannot reasonably be required to frame a responsive pleading. 39. There is no basis for THE LAST PARGRAPH’S, “information and belief” of the allegations advanced in the complaint, rendering it defective.

40. Plaintiff has not provided any certified documentation proving that it is the owner of the original enforceable agreement to warrant payment from me. 9


41. Without the original contracts, there may be no legal foundation for enforcing the debt. 42. Without the proof requested in the above paragraphs, subject matter and personal jurisdiction and or standing is not established. 43. Plaintiff has not presented any certified proof that I was notified that it had “purchased this account for value.” 44. Plaintiff has not presented any certified proof of the alleged: “value” it purchased the account for. 45. Plaintiff has not presented a certified copy of the original agreement with its complaint that I allegedly had with the original creditor. 46. Plaintiff does not present proof that it purchased the account from the original creditor 47. I have no way of knowing, and neither does the court, if plaintiff is not engaging in a fraud, which is known as buyers of junk (non performing) debt. 48. Plaintiff does not give a date in which I had allegedly entered into an agreement with the plaintiffs, attorneys and or the original creditor. 49. Plaintiff does not give the date in which it allegedly purchased the account. 50. Plaintiff failed to state a cause of action that is supported by the terms of the original agreement that the plaintiff allegedly purchased for value from the original creditor. 51. In plain English, plaintiff has failed to identify a cause of action and therefore has no right of action. 52. Plaintiff’s pleading is devoid of foundation and relevant facts. 53. I have been and am being damaged by this frivolous action that fails to clearly state a claim upon which relief may be granted and I MOVE this court to dismiss plaintiff’s action with prejudice for the above reasons emphasis on: Failure to State a Claim.

10


54. The court has no jurisdiction in this matter because the plaintiff has failed to verify and or present on the record and in court with a complaint and original documents to establish a controversy and injury to warrant the court’s jurisdiction over the matter. 55. There has been no jurisdictional filings or proofs proffered by plaintiff with the complaint thus rendering the complaint fatally defective. 56. To succeed on a motion to dismiss pursuant to CPLR 3211, the documentary evidence that forms the basis of the defense must be such that it resolves all factual issues as a matter of law and conclusively disposes of the plaintiff’s claim (AG Capital Funding Partners, L.P. v. State Street Bank and Trust Co., 5 NY3d 582, 590-591 [2005]; 511 West 232nd Owners Corp. v. Jennifer Realty Co., 98NY2d 144, 152 [2002]; Cohen v. Nassau Educators Fed. Credit Union, 37 AD3d 751 [2d Dept 2007], Sheridan v. Town of Orangetown, 21 AD3d 365 [2d Dept 2005]; Teitler v Max J. Pollack & Sons, 288 AD2d 302 [2d Dept 2001]; see Held v. Kaufman, 91NY2d 425, 430-431 [1998]; Leon v. Martinez, 84 NY2d 83, 88 [1994]; Museum Trading Co. v. Bantry, 281 AD2d 524 [2d Dept 2001]; Jaslow v. Pep Boys Manny, MOE & Jack, 279 AD2d 611 [2d Dept 2001]; Brunot v. Joe Eisenberger & Co., 266 AD2d 421 [2d Dept 1999] ).

57. Please note that the alleged Defendant was not served at all with the Plaintiff’s complaint and had to come to the court to secure such. The plaintiff submitted a falsified affidavit of service with no mailing receipts. 58. The non-service of the complaint, as well as the non-mailing of the complaint obstructs the rule of law and caused the alleged defendant unwarranted time, money, injury, and grief. 59. The non served complaint and nonverified frivolous law suit, in and by themselves have further harassed and maliciously injured the alleged defendant. 60. The plaintiffs malicious improper service, coupled with failure to tender evidence, by proof in admissible form, to establish the cause of action has no justification and warrants the court as a matter of law to dismiss this action with prejudice.

61. In this matter, plaintiff chose not to serve or mail a complaint or summons on the alleged defendant, obstructed proper service, failed to include a fact witness or affidavit and other

11


supporting proofs to establish standing, which renders the matter wholly defective since there is no cause of action clearly articulated. 62. The court of appeals, in Sarotoga County Chamber of Commerce, Inc. v. Pataki 100 NY2d 801, 812 ( 2003), cert denied 540 US 1017 ( 2003), declared that “standing to sue is critical to the proper functioning of the judicial system. 63. It is a threshold issue. If standing, is denied, the pathway to the courthouse is blocked. The plaintiff who has standing, however, may cross the threshold and seek judicial redress.” 64. If a plaintiff lacks standing to sue the plaintiff may not proceed in the action. Stark v. Goldberg, 297 AD2d 203 (1st Dept 2002). 65. Therefore to have standing, a party must establish an “injury in fact, an actual legal stake in the matter being adjudicated.” Security Pac. Nail. Bank v. Evans, 31 A.D. 3d 278, 279 ( 1 st Dept), appeal dismissed 8 N. Y. 3d 837 (2007); see also, Society of the Plastics Indus. Inc v. County of Suffolk, 77 N.Y. 2d 761, 772 (1991) (standing means a plaintiff has suffered an injury in fact).

66. When a plaintiff lacks standing to sue, the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the matter. Lacks v. Lacks, 41 N.Y.2d 71,74 (1976) (questions of mootness and standing of parties characterized as raising questions of subject matter jurisdiction).

67. Without the requisite proof necessary to establish standing, the complaint must be dismissed.

68. Since the complaint fails to state a cause of action, the complaint must be dismissed. 69. Since plaintiff has not proffered proof that the attorney who filed this action is actually an agent for the plaintiff, the jurisdiction of the court is not complete; hence, the complaint must be dismissed. 70. Based on law, plaintiff’s improperly served, non-mailed and frivolous complaint, is fatally defective on various fronts rendering invalid and requiring dismissal of said complaint.

12


PLAINTIFFS STATUTORY OBSTRUCTIONS 71. In New York State, the plaintiff must serve the summons and complaint upon the defendant in the manner prescribed by the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules (“CPLR”) Article 3. In this case, the Plaintiffs and their attorneys did not do so. Plaintiff did not and has not served a summons and complaint on the alleged defendant. The alleged defendant had to come to the court to get a copy of Plaintiff’s frivolous summons and complaint in order to defend herself from this fraud and fictional administration. 72. Consequently, plaintiffs have obstructed CPLR Article 3 and have maliciously harassed the alleged defendant and obstructed the rule of law while doing so. Again, the alleged defendant had to go to the court to retrieve the plaintiff’s attached frivolous summons and complaint. 73. Plaintiffs obstructed CPLR Section 308 (1) by not serving a natural person by delivery of the summons and complaint within the state to the defendant. 74. Plaintiffs obstructed CPLR Section 308(2) by not serving a natural person other than the defendant “ by delivery of the summons and complaint within the state to a person of suitable age and discretion at the actual place of business, dwelling place or usual place of abode of the person to be served” and mailing the summons and complaint by first class mail to the person’s last known residence or actual place of abode. The plaintiffs obstructed service by not serving a summons or complaint. 75. Plaintiffs obstructed CPLR Section 308(4) by not serving via where the service could not be made with due diligence by actual service or substitute service, the plaintiff may affix the summons and complaint “to the door of either the actual place of business, dwelling place or usual place of abode within the state of the person to be served” and mail the summons and complaint by first class mail to the person’s last known residence or actual place of abode. Plaintiff’s again violated (“CPLR”) Article 3. Plaintiffs did not serve, mail, or affix on the door, any complaint and did not mail or serve the summons and complaint at all. PLAINTIFF AND ATTORNEYS DOCUMENTED CRIMINAL BACKGROUND 76. The Plaintiffs, specifically, the alleged lawyers, Rubin & Rothman LLC have a long history of using the NYS courts for criminal, money laundering and extortion fraud, specifically, filing falsified affidavits of service and unconscionable contracting, as exemplified in this matter and in exhibits 10-14 in the Reply Affidavit dated September 3, 2012. 13


77. According to the attached law suit information against Rubin & Rothman LLC (attorneys and Plaintiffs in this matter), they have obstructed the rule of law in New York State. They have defrauded many innocent New Yorkers like the alleged defendant by filing and using falsified affidavits of service in the NYS courts as part of a money laundering, extortion, revenge and hit men operation. 78. Additionally, Plaintiff’s process servers, under the supervision of Rubin & Rothman LLC attorneys/fictitious plaintiffs repeatedly and persistently falsified its affidavits, and criminally notarized the affidavits as documented in this matter and in the attached law suit against plaintiff’s attorneys. 79. The plaintiff’s process servers repeatedly and persistently lied on the attached affidavit of service that they had confirmed that the address to which they affixed the summons and complaint, when they never affixed anything. They simply lied on the affidavit of service. 80. Plaintiff’s process servers lied on affidavits of service that the servers had mailed a copy of the summons and complaint to the defendant in this action when they did not. 81. Plaintiff’s process servers provided the falsified and illegally executed affidavit of service to the Nassau county clerk. 82. Relying on the falsified and illegally executed affidavit of service which claimed that the alleged defendant had been properly served, the courts have been enjoined and enjoined the alleged defendant in plaintiff’s attorneys patterned and practiced racketeering falsified affidavit of service scheme of fraud and fraud on the courts. 83. Anyone who would knowingly agree to a non-judicial foreclosure, where the illegally appointed bank trustee has the power to foreclose on your home at his and/or her whim, is ludicrous and would have to be totally incompetent. 84. The court MUST act under the presumption that the involved attorneys have acted criminally because the fraud has been reported. Please see the attached criminal report attached as Exhibit 3. The presumption of the court must be corrected. The alleged plaintiff’s documented scheme to defraud, collusion, and extortion crimes have been reported to the police, FBI, District Association, Bar Association and other criminal regulating authorities. The presumption that the attorneys involved are correct and the innocent crime victim is wrong must be reversed. 14


85. The fictitious plaintiff’s cannot disavow the below claims documenting the attorneys involved use of criminal violations in civil litigation. The attorney crimes, deceit and misconduct                   

included: New York Penal - Article 190 - § 190.65 Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree 175.05 - FALSIFYING BUSINESS RECORDS IN THE SECOND DEGREE. 175.10 - FALSIFYING BUSINESS RECORDS IN THE FIRST DEGREE. 175.30 - OFFERING A FALSE INSTRUMENT FOR FILING IN THE SECOND DEGREE. 175.35 - OFFERING A FALSE INSTRUMENT FOR FILING IN THE FIRST DEGREE. 175.45 - ISSUING A FALSE FINANCIAL STATEMENT. 18 USC 1341 FRAUDS AND SWINDLES. 18 USC 1512 ENGAGING IN MISLEADING CONDUCT. 18 USC 1503 INTIMIDATE WITNESSES. 185.05 FRAUD INVOLVING A SECURITY INTEREST; 190.40 - CRIMINAL USURY IN THE SECOND DEGREE. 190.42 - CRIMINAL USURY IN THE FIRST DEGREE. 190.45 - POSSESSION OF USURIOUS LOAN RECORDS. 190.50 - UNLAWFUL COLLECTION PRACTICES. 190.55 - MAKING A FALSE STATEMENT OF CREDIT TERMS. 190.60 - SCHEME TO DEFRAUD IN THE SECOND DEGREE. 190.65 - SCHEME TO DEFRAUD IN THE FIRST DEGREE. 190.23 - FALSE PERSONATION. 190.25 - CRIMINAL IMPERSONATION IN THE SECOND DEGREE. 190.26 - CRIMINAL IMPERSONATION IN THE FIRST DEGREE. 18 U.S.C. SEC. 1962; RACKETEERING BY CONDUCTING AN ONGOING ENTERPRISE OF BRIBERY, EXTORTION, OR THREATS OF SAME,

 N.Y. Judiciary Law § 487 inter alia provide that an attorney is guilty of a misdemeanor and is liable for treble damages to the aggrieved party if the attorney:". . . is guilty of any deceit or collusion, or consents to any deceit or collusion, with the intent to deceive the court or any party." See McKinney's Judiciary Law § 487; see also Oakes v. Muka, 56 A.D.3d 1057, 868 N.Y.S.2d 796 (3d Dept. 2008). HARM CAUSED BY THE PLAINTIFFS’ 86. The harm to the alleged defendant subjected to this frivolous law suit and to their falsified affidavit of service, where she has not been properly served, is near incalculable.

87. I have had to go to court in Nassau County while I live in the Bronx county to get the plaintiffs complaint and records, and I have been criminally forced to continue doing such because this documented fraud has not been stopped. I have had to spend substantial amount of time and money researching the above laws, requiring dismissal of this fraud. This frivolous complaint has caused me and inflicted great emotional distress.

15


88. Affidavits of service swear to the truthfulness of the information contained therein. The courts rely on the presumption that the affidavits are truthful. The courts must rely on the truthfulness of the affidavits for the courts to render decisions in those disputes, leaving no question to the validity and fairness of those decisions. The integrity of the court system has been obstructed because of this fictitious plaintiffs’ attorneys documented, replicated, pattern and practice obstruction of the rule of law falsified affidavit racketeering money laundering fraud scheme. 89. The integrity of the court system has been obstructed because the courts depend upon the confidence of the litigants and public that courts provide justice, and there can be no such confidence when there is doubt whether parties received proper notice to appear in court to be heard and to defend themselves from a documented junk debt buying criminal fraud scheme, as epitomized in this case and in the underlying cases in the attached exhibis. 90. Penalties and sanctions must be enforced to stop this falsified affidavit of service money laundering attorney criminal court enjoinment scheme and the entertaining of frivolous law suits. CAUSE OF ACTION 91. By reason of the foregoing, and since no penalties have been enforced, the plaintiffs and their attorneys have replicated their criminal falsified affidavit of service money laundering scheme, despite evidence refuting their falsified affidavit of service scheme. The fictitious plaintiff nd the attorneys involved have filed the attached frivolous law suit against the alleged defendant replicating their improper service scam. The Plaintiffs have a history of criminal fraud as epitomized in the attached exhibits. They have filed a falsified affidavit of service in this matter and a frivolous, malicious, and revenge based non verified, unauthenticated, lack of standing complaint. The plaintiffs and their attorneys have enjoined the alleged defendant and the courts in criminal, indisputable, fraud, misrepresentation, illegality, deceit, unconscionability, lack of due service, obstruction of due process, violations of law, and other illegalities. This frivolous law suit coupled with the falsified affidavit of service and the Plaintiff’s scheme of fraud is aggravating, exemplifies a need for penalties and arrests for attorneys committing these crimes.

JUDICIAL NOTICE CLAIM OF RIGHTS

92. I hereby claim all of my rights at all times and waive none of them at any time for any cause or reason. 93. I hereby invoke the powers and protections of the Constitution of the State of New York, The Constitution of the United States of America, and of the Common Law.

94. I hereby invoke the powers and protections of the of Anastoff v. United Sates, 223 F. 3d 898 ) 8th Circuit 2000), Part II and Part III of the Decision especially, wherein it speaks to the historical underpinnings of the Doctrine of Precedence.

95. I hereby invoke the powers and protections of Hughes v. Rowe, 449 U.S. 5 (1980); Haines v. Kerner, 404 U.S. 519 ( 1972); Labounty v. Adler, 933 F. 2d 121 (2 nd Cir. 1991). as noted above, particularly where they speak to the fact that pro se litigants are not to be held to the same standards as bar authorized lawyers, that the litigants have the right to submit evidence of their crimes to the courts for adjudication, and where the courts dismiss pro se litigants, the courts must provide curative instructions as to how to repair their paperwork and grant leave or permission and provide sufficient time to refile said paperwork. 96. I hereby claim and invoke the powers protections, and benefits of the Statute of Frauds, especially where it references the fact that in order to sue and receive a judgment, a claim of debt MUST BE PROVEN. The only way to prove the existence of a debt is by evidence, in open court on the record, through the testimony, under oath, of a competent fact witness with firsthand knowledge and subject to cross examination. The creditor must prove, with original documentation, that it is the HOLDER IN DUE COURSE and that the alleged debtor signed the document.

97. Since the plaintiffs have no original contracts, cannot produce any documentation, verification and or validation, this suggests that plaintiffs are involved in the holder in due course fraud racket. See New York Penal Law, NYPL 190.65 Scheme to defraud in the first degree; 190.40 Criminal usury in the second degree; 190.55 Making a false statement of credit terms; 190.50 Unlawful collection; 185.15 Fraudulent disposition of (intangible) property subject to a conditional sale contract; 185.05 Fraud involving a security interest; 175.35 17


Offering a false instrument for filing in the second degree; 175.45 Issuing a false financial statement; 175.10: Falsifying business records in the first degree. “Attorney Buying Evidence of Debt-Misleading Court�. Every attorney who either directly or indirectly buys or is interested in buying any evidence of debt or thing in action with intent to bring suit thereon is guilty of a crime. Any attorney who in any proceeding before any court of a justice of the peace or police judge or other inferior court in which he appears as attorney, willfully misstates any proposition or seeks to mislead the court in any matter of law is guilty of a misdemeanor and on any trial therefore the state shall only be held to prove to the court that the cause was pending, that Rubin & Rothman LLC and Marianne Stahl appeared as attorneys in this action, and created unfounded legal sentences to subterfuge law, wherein it is not the law.

98. If the defense be that the act was not willful, the burden shall be on the Plaintiff to prove that they did not know that there was error in their falsified affidavit of service and non-standing complaint. Any person guilty of falsely preparing any book, paper, record, instrument in writing, or other matter or thing, with intent to produce it, or allow it to be produced as genuine upon any trial, proceeding or inquiry whatever, authorized by law, SHALL BE GUILTY OF A FELONY. See NYPL 75.35 offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree; 175.40 issuing a false certificate.

99. In this case the specific subject matter jurisdictional failings are present: no contract, no verification, fraud committed in the procurement of jurisdiction, Fraud upon the court, violation of due process, no justifiable issue is presented to the court through proper pleadings, no independent basis for liability, no cognizable cause of action against alleged, Defendant Miriam Snyder. When there is a jurisdictional failing appearing on the face of the record, the matter is void, subject to dismissal with damages. Please see exhibits 7 and 8 which are NYS court decisions confirming jurisdictional failings.

100. Plaintiff has placed no facts on the record. No fact appears on record whether by verification, deposition, admission; answer to interrogatory, or by affidavit to support the complaint of plaintiff. Documents proffered by Plaintiffs are unverified, out-of-date, irrelevant, and inadmissible. The record shows that affiant and alleged Defendant, Miriam

18


Snyder has stated that material facts to which there are substantial Plaintiff errors, and such errors and issues needed to be addressed before enjoining the courts. 101. It is well stated that statements of counsel of alleged facts are not sufficient to establish facts for its client; counsel cannot testify and represent its client in the same proceeding.

102. Miriam Snyder hereby claims the Due Process right to have findings of Fact and Conclusion of Law included and in support of any Order of this Court.

103. Miriam Snyder hereby questions the authenticity of ALL dates and/or ALL signatures by ALL parties on ALL documents, including without limitations, notarized documents, “contracts”, “deeds”, “titles”, affidavits, and/or the like, including without limitations the dates and/or signatures by notary publics, officers, employees, and any and ALL parties attesting to any and ALL claims, facts, accounting, transfers, recordings, publications, and/or the like, etc.

104. Miriam Snyder disavows any and ALL implied and/or conferred and/or inferred “understanding” of “legalese” terms now and at the time of the “signing” of any and ALL of the documents pertaining to this action.

105. Miriam Snyder disavows any and ALL presumptions made by this Court, Defendant, and any and ALL other parties when said presumption may be detrimental to her interest and/or case.

106. Miriam Snyder hereby demands ALL of her Rights be protected by this Court, including without limitations, State and federal constitutionally protected Rights, God given Rights, Civil Rights, Human Rights, Rights protected by Treaty(s), and/or ALL privileges and/or immunities, and/or the like.

107. Miriam Snyder hereby demands this Court refuse to commit, and act to prevent the fictitious plaintiff from committing, any and ALL acts barratrous in nature.

108. Miriam Snyder hereby demands ALL applicable Rules of Court, Rules of Procedures, Laws, and/or Statutes be adhered to without preference for any party.

109. Other factors that this Court must take into consideration, besides the unconstitutionality of the purposefully disguised confession of judgment, and/or the cognovit contract incognito; but also must consider contracts of adhesions are procedurally and substantively unconscionable contracts and contract foundations built upon mistakes, inadvertence, excusable negligence, newly discovered information, fraudulent conveyance, misrepresentation and fraud in the inducement in violation of Federal and New York State law; are void ab ignition. 19


110. The very existence of a contract is the very heart of our commercial system as both parties operate in good faith and any “illegal provisions of the contract are “void,” and thus those provisions were never part of a validly formed contract.” Three Valleys Mun. Water Dist. v. E.F. Hutton & Co., 925 F.2d 1136, 1140 (9th Cir. 1991), and “voidness” challenges go to the very existence of a contract provision, and are not merely a defense to a legally formed contract.” Unconscionability is not merely a defensive doctrine but rather it goes to the predicate of whether a contract was validly formed in the first place.” California Grocers Ass’n, Inc. v. Bank of America, 22 Cal.App.4th 205, 217 1994): and the “Doctrine of Unconscionability,” procedural and/or substantively are the tools to determine the validity of any contract thus ignoring for now the four main elements of a contract.

111. Plaintiff is raising the unconscionability aspect of the unseen and alleged contract or agreement. Unconscionable contracts or clauses are the substantive element of unconscionability. They traditionally involve contract terms that are so one-sided as to ‘shock the conscience’ or that impose harsh or oppressive terms.

112. Miriam Snyder disputes and hereby rebuts any and all statements in any and all Affidavits submitted by the fictitious plaintiff and/or agents based on their documented malice and deceit, deliberately causing harm. 113.

The terms "due process of law" and “natural rights” as used in the Federal Constitution and/or the

Declaration of Independence, have been repeatedly declared to be the exact equivalent of the phrase "law of the land" as used in the Magna Charta. 16 Am. Jur. 2d 547; The alleged defendant and affiant Miriam Snyder hereby incorporates paragraphs one (1) through thirty-nine (39) of the Magna Carta as if they are set forth at length herein. RELIEF REQUESTED WHEREFORE, Affiant, the alleged defendant, Miriam Snyder demands an order dismissing this replicated Rubin & Rothman LLC fictitious Plaintiff lawsuit which exemplifies unregulated attorney misconduct and deceit embedded in the systematic criminal filing of frivolous law suits and false instruments, specifically falsified affidavits, in the courts to extort money from Miriam Snyder and other vulnerable and or ethnic/gender populations. This fictitious plaintiff matter is a wrong venue, transportation hardship, financial rape, malicious and deceitful law suit with no merit or standing whatsoever.

Dear Public Officials and Prosecutors: I write this affidavit pursuant to 9 ½ years of Attorney Keith Rothman’s unregulated criminally expert fraud in the New York State courts terrorizing and stealing money from innocent people. I seek an end to Keith Rothman and his entourage of criminals, attorney sharing in fees scam, extortion, scheme to defraud, continuous filing of false instruments in the court and the court coercing innocent affiants to partake in the fraud. Please see the attached affidavits documenting the use of the New York State court as a legal playground for unauthorized third party financial and privacy rights rapes disguised as debt collection. Please see exhibits 10-14 in the below affidavit link documenting such. http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/rubin_and_rothman_mailed_dismissal_final?mode=window&viewM ode=singlePage OR http://www.endorganizedcrimeuniverse.com/assets/download/NOTARIZED_RUBIN_AND_ROTHMAN_MAILE D_DISMISSAL_FINAL_WITH_MAIL_RECEIPTS.pdf

I seek the criminal prosecution of Attorney Keith Rothman, Law License # 1419498, Mark Richard Braverman Alleged Law License # 2799260, Marianne C. Smith-Stahl, Esq Alleged Law License 2842581, Elizabeth T Vrachnas, Law License # 4788493, Alex Shafran Server License # 0862826, Edgar Mora, Alleged Server License # 108706 and Gina Tornaman, Account Representative/ Robo-Signer. Please see the above noted affidavit with exhibits detailing their crimes.

37


In summary, Keith Rothman has a history of filing sewer service frivolous law suits against innocent people. Please see this pattern and practice documented in exhibits 10-14 in the above mentioned affidavit link documenting such.

Since his criminal fraud crimes continue unregulated, I became his over 9 year crime victim despite appealing to the courts for over 7 years to stop his criminally expert fraud. Keith Rothman filed a frivolous debt collector lawsuit in 2004. He thereafter enjoined multiple lawyers so he could impersonate the plaintiff. He did not serve the summons or complaint. I found out about the frivolous law suit in 2006 via garnishment. I am being forced to partake in this malicious and unjustifiable fraud and I seek an end to such.

Keith Rothman filed a frivolous law suit with an obvious fictitious plaintiff and NOT one person in the court system; particularly the judges are stopping this criminal fraud. The criminal fraud is exemplified in the complaint, where it lists Ford Motor Credit in the caption as a plaintiff but yet the bottom of the complaint clearly states: THIS IS AN ATTEMPT TO COLLECT A DEBT. THIS COMMUNICATIONS IS FROM DEBT COLLECTORS. In addition, Keith Rothman’s criminal fictitious plaintiff impersonation crimes are exemplified in the Miriam Snyder’s affidavit dated June 25, 2012. In this affidavit please see exhibits 1C, 1D and 7 and paragraph 12 as proof and summary of Keith Rothman’s impersonation crimes. It is located here: http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/rubin_and_rothman_mailed_dismissal_final?mode=window&view Mode=singlePage

In addition to Keith Rothman’ criminal fraud embedded in creating a fictitious plaintiff to steal money from me, he masterminded and implemented a way to make sure I was never served or mailed the complaint. He thereafter hired internet publicized and documented debt deception process servers named ALEX SHAFRAN, SERVER LICENSE # 0862826, EDGAR MORA, ALLEGED SERVER LICENSE #0862826 to notarize a falsified affidavit of service with no mailing receipts. Please see Rubin and Rothman and their process servers posted on the internet under debt deception in exhibit 1G page 32 in the above noted ink.

The lack of service, no mail receipts, debt collector notification on the complaint, while Keith Rothman impersonates Ford Motor Credit each indicates intentional deceit, collusions, and intent to deceive the court and the party. 38


Keith Rothman criminal impersonation, extortion and scheme to defraud crimes are consistent with: N.Y. Judiciary Law § 487 inter alia provide that an attorney is guilty of a misdemeanor and is liable for treble damages to the aggrieved party if the attorney:". . . is guilty of any deceit or collusion, or consents to any deceit or collusion, with the intent to deceive the court or any party." See McKinney's Judiciary Law § 487; see also Oakes v. Muka, 56 A.D.3d 1057, 868 N.Y.S.2d 796 (3d Dept. 2008).

Since there was no service or mailing of the complaint and summons, this frivolous and criminal Keith Rothman law suit was discovered via a criminal garnishment at a professor position I had. The criminal garnishment effectuated a lawless termination from the professorship position within 30 days of the garnishment.

Thereafter, Keith Rothman used his criminal defaulted judgment to criminally freeze two bank accounts, both with exempted income funds. He also used the defraud default judgment to destroy my credit record for over 9 years. January and March 2012 he came after me again.

Miriam Snyder the affiant asks the prosecutors to consider, inter alia, the frequency and persistence of Rubin and Rothman, LLC repeated volatile debt collection practices. Please see exhibits 10-14 and paragraphs 4-7 in the above linked affidavit.. Please note that under 1692k(b) and (c). and Cavallaro v. Shapiro & Kreisman, 933 F. Supp. 1148 (EDNY 1996), a single violation is sufficient to establish liability. Miriam Snyder seeks and end to these crimes and entitled treble damages for the time she has put into defending herself from these 9 1/2 years of fictitious Plaintiff terrorizations embedded in frivolous law suit filing, pursuant to FDCP Section 1692k which also authorizes administrative fees where it is determined that the civil action by a party was brought in bad faith or solely for harassment. Mendez v. Apple Bank for Savings, 541 NYS2d 920 (Civ. Ct., NY, CO . 1989) Attorney Keith Rothman’s robo-signed false instruments filed in the court, coupled with the robostamped, no seal, and non-authenticated judgment exemplifies fraud in and on the court.

The intentional misrepresentations in this matter included: (1) knowingly false allegations contained within the underlying complaint that attorney Keith Rothman was Ford Motor Credit (2) the submission of multiple false affidavits as noted above and in Exhibit D.( 3) Robo-signed fraudulent business records 39


(4) Collusion between multiple unknown attorneys for purposes of extorting monies from Miriam Snyder (5) Defective and fraudulent, insufficient, based solely on conclusory statements and unsupported by factual allegations complaint and summons (6) no mailing receipts (7) Robo-signed fraudulent judgment (8) Maliciously contacting Miriam Snyder’ employer without authority, (9) Use of the defraud judgment to steal money via a criminal garnish of Miriam Snyder’s pay check and the unauthorized freezing of her bank accounts, (10) Breach of Privacy Acts;

Please take prosecutorial notice that the Court of Appeals (Judge Susan Phillips Read, writing for a unanimous 6-0 Court) ruled that Judiciary Law § 487 does not derive from common law fraud, but instead evolved from and can be traced back to the First Statute of Westminster (a statute enacted by the English Parliament at Westminster in 1275 during the reign of King Edward I). (The 1275 Statute, which dealt with many facets of English Civil and Criminal law, inter alia set penalties of imprisonment for a year and a day and a lifetime ban from court for pleaders engaging in "any manner of Deceit or Collusion in the King's Court" or efforts to "beguile the Court" or parties to its proceedings).

Accordingly, the New York Court of Appeals held that § 487 is a "unique statute of ancient origin" and not a codification of common law fraud. Thus, Judge Read wrote, "The operative language at issue, 'guilty of any deceit,' focuses on the attorney's intent to deceive, not the deceit's success" [emphasis added]. Judge Read continued that to limit forfeiture of treble damages under § 487 to only successful deceits would "run counter to the statute's evident intent to enforce an attorney's special obligation to protect the integrity of the courts and foster their truth-seeking function."

By finding that deceitful conduct need not be successful to fall under the forfeiture ambit of § 487, Read, answering the second certified question, found that recovery of treble damages does not depend on whether or not a court was able to 'see through' the attempted material misrepresentation of fact in a complaint (the mere existence of such misrepresentation was sufficient). The Court of Appeals' February 12, 2009 Opinion can be found at: http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2009/2009_01069.htm (2009 NY Slip Op 01069).

Please take prosecutorial note that I, Miriam Snyder called Ford Motor Credit who confirmed they did not own this Rubin and Rothman alleged debt. They were unaware of the law suit. Despite such on September 4, 2012 a hearing was held with Judge Michael Ciaaffa. I informed the judge of Ford Motor Credit’s noninvolvement with this law suit and restated and illustrated the fraud in Keith Rothman’s 40


debt collection letters, complaint and summons. Despite such, Elizabeth T Vrachnas, continued Keith Rothman’s fraud by acting like she was the plaintiff and the plaintiff’s counsel. While in reality the Plaintiff in this lawsuit is a third party (not the original creditor), and basically everything stated in court by her was hearsay and not ruled as such. She was criminally allowed to terrorize me in court regarding private maters she had no business with. Elizabeth T Vrachnas was not present when the alleged debt was allegedly formed and cannot give firsthand testimony to the veracity of the alleged debt, payments made or processed. Elizabeth T Vrachnas testimony about the allegd debt is tantamount to a witness who testifies that while he didn’t actually see a murder being committed, he heard about the details second hand. Second hand testimony is not valid and should have been tossed out. In addition, to advance Keith Rothman’s fraud, during the hearing of September 4, 2012 Elizabeth T Vrachnas presented a computer printout document regarding a 1992 Ford Motor Credit lease. She presented this fraud as evidence and gave a copy to the judge, while I objected. She used the court room for criminal purposes titled filing false instruments and deceitfully gave such to the judge as if this false instrument was authenticated, true and or original. Elizabeth T Vrachnas should be prosecuted for attorney misconduct, specifically fraud, practicing subterfuge and acting in a purely criminal mode. At the hearing of September 4, 2012 she purported to state facts; however, as all competent legal advisors know, statements of counsel in brief or in argument are not facts before the court. What Elizabeth T Vrachnas called facts were in actuality fabricated theories and conclusions about this Keith Rothman fictitious plaintiff frivolous law suit. She made no attempt to state actual facts through a competent fact witness. Instead, she deliberately and deceitfully acted as both witness and counsel. She should have known that counsel cannot be both witness and counsel in the same cause. See United States v. Lovasco (06/09/77) 431 U.S. 783, 97 S. Ct. 2044, 52 L. Ed. 2d 752, Gonzales v. Buist. (04/01/12) 224 U.S. 126, 56 L. Ed. 693, 32 S. Ct. 463, Holt v. United States, (10/31/10) 218 U.S. 245, 54 L. Ed. 1021, 31 S. Ct.

She was used to further harass and extort. She did not and cannot prove standing to bring the action and failed to prove up the claim of damages.

2012 NY Slip Op 50008 Midland Funding LLC d/b/a in New York as Midland Funding of Delaware LLC, Plaintiff, v. Dianne Wallace, Defendant. 1788-08 City Court of Mt. Vernon Decided on January 5, 2012

Rubin & Rothman, LLC

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP Counsel for Midland Funding LLC & Rubin & Rothman, LLC Dianne Wallace Defendant Pro Se The Lawyers' Fund For Client Protection Mark A. Gross, J. By Decision and Order dated September 6, 2010, this Court ordered a hearing to determine whether sanctions would be imposed upon plaintiff and/or plaintiff's attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit. On or about June 18, 2010 plaintiff moved ex parte to vacate a default judgment entered in favor of plaintiff and against defendant on June 17, 2008 and to discontinue the action. Although the plaintiff failed to provide any explanation regarding why the judgment was erroneously entered or the reason for the two year delay in seeking to vacate said judgment, the Court granted plaintiff's request to vacate the default judgment so that the defendant would no longer be prejudiced by having a default judgment on her record. Plaintiff and plaintiff's attorney were directed to appear before this Court on October 5, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. for a hearing to determine whether plaintiff's attorneys should be sanctioned under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1 for their frivolous conduct in entering a default judgment against the defendant in error and failing to vacate said erroneous judgment in a timely fashion.

EXHIBIT 11 2012 NY Slip Op 50974 LVNV Funding LLC, Plaintiff, v. Annetta Guest, Defendant. 2091-10 City Court of Mount Vernon Decided on May 29, 2012 http://www.plol.org/Pages/Secure/Document.aspx?d=wmmFBB%2fuxTRX86gr5ucwtw%3d%3d&l=Cases&rp=4

Rubin & Rothman, LLC Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP Counsel for Midland Funding LLC & Rubin & Rothman, LLC Annetta Guest Defendant Pro Se The Lawyers' Fund For Client Protection Mark A. Gross, J.

This Court ordered a hearing to determine whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit and whether plaintiff's counsel should be held in contempt of the Court for failing to provide court ordered documents. Plaintiff commenced the instant action on June 8, 2010. Defendant filed her answer on July 23, 2010. The matter was scheduled for a Pre-Trial Conference to be held on September 28, 2010. On September 28, 2010 both sides appeared and the plaintiff was ordered to serve on defendant and file with the Court its proof of the entire chain of assignments of the alleged debt, the credit card agreement and other documentary proof of plaintiff's prima facie case by October 29, 2010. The Pre-Trial Conference was adjourned to November 16, 2010. On November 16, 2010 both sides again appeared, however, plaintiff still had not provided the ordered documents to defendant nor filed them with the Court. Plaintiff's counsel requested an adjournment until January 18, 2011 so that they could obtain the documentary proof the Court had ordered it to provide by October 29, 2010. The Court informed plaintiff's counsel on the record that it would not tolerate any additional delay in plaintiff's counsel producing the required documentary proof. On January 18, 2011 plaintiff's counsel appeared and still did not have the documentary proof and requested to discontinue the case. The Court refused to accept plaintiff's request to discontinue the action, dismissed the case with prejudice and adjourned the case to February 24, 2011 for a hearing to determine whether plaintiff's attorneys should be held in contempt of the Court for failing to provide the requisite documents as directed and whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1 for their frivolous conduct in commencing a lawsuit without having the requisite proof needed for a prima facie case. The hearing was held on February 24, 2011. With respect to the issue of whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit, plaintiff's counsel contended that plaintiff had a valid case against Ms. Annetta Guest, the defendant herein. In support of their contention that plaintiff had commenced a valid action against Ms. Guest, plaintiff's counsel produced a copy of a statement by Leonard Turnbull, a Senior Sales Specialist at GE Money Bank, which is entitled an Affidavit of Sale and which is dated February 11, 2011 and allegedly sworn to before a notary public in the State of Georgia. In his statement, Mr. Turnbull swears that GE Money Bank sold Ms. Guest's account, account number 6018595219157951, to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC. Mr. Turnbull further swears that the correct amount owed by Ms. Guest as of the February 14, 2009 date of sale was $1,781.54. Plaintiff's counsel also presented an undated Bill of Sale which references a Forward Flow Receivables Purchase Agreement dated December 19, 2007 between GE Money Bank and SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC. The Bill of Sale indicates that GE Money Bank sold and assigned certain receivables as set forth in certain files delivered by GE Money Bank to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC on February 14, 2009. Also presented to the Court was an undated document entitled Declaration of Account Transfer which indicates that on February 27, 2009 SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC sold and assigned certain receivables identified on a receivable file dated February 17, 2009 to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC. The document further states that SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC subsequently sold the same assets to LVNV Funding, LLC.

SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 HEARING

55


1. CERTIFIED US MAIL CRIMINAL REPORT: RUBIN $ ROTHMAN LLC DEADLY AND CRIMINAL DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/finalee_rubin_rothman_fraud_judgment_ enjoinment_in?mode=window&viewMode=singlePage AND http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/rubin_and_rothman_mailed_dismissal_fin al?mode=window&viewMode=singlePage 2. In this matter Rubin & Rothman conspirators are process servers who have engaged in repetitious fraudulent affidavit attesting to service. This fraudulent affidavit attesting scheme effectuated a default judgment via the alleged debtor failed to appear in court. Consequently, a default judgment was entered based on this documented scheme to defraud affiant. 3. The fraud racket process service conspirators are: Alex Shafran Alleged Server License # 0862826 and Edgar Mora, Alleged Server License # 4. Affiant files this affidavit to refute Rubin and Rothmans’s attached fraud based affidavit of service and affidavit of additional mailing. Affiant submits this affidavit under penalty of perjury and is seeking an end to this Rubin and Rothman ignominious and shoddy practice of “sewer service” as defined in the matter of: Kovalesky v. A.M.C. Associated Merchandising Corp. , 551 F. Supp. 544, 546 (S.D.N.Y. 1982) (“‘Sewer service’ constitutes shoddy practice. It delays the process of justice and must be discouraged. This court has discretion to do just that.”). 5. Affiant Miriam Snyder declares decrees and affirms that she did not live at 100 Terrace Apartment 332 Hempstead New York at any time in 2004. This is the address where the fraudulent service of process was allegedly mailed and affixed to the door. 6. Affiant further affirms that she was not served any summons or complaint on August 2, 3, 4, 5th, 2004 or any other day as she was living and working in Bronx County teaching as indicated on the attached supplemental affidavits. 7. Affiant Miriam Snyder affirms that NO complaint or summons copy was mailed to her as exemplified in the fact that no mail receipts are in the file as noted in her affidavit dated December 19, 2006, located on page 61 in the alleged Plaintiff’s Affirmation In Opposition or here: http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/rubin_and_rothman_mailed_dismissal_fin al?mode=window&viewMode=singlePage 56


8. The evidence shows that contrary to the alleged plaintiff’s falsified affidavit of service, there is and was no Mr. Archie, the neighbor mentioned in the falsified affidavit of service as there is no description for this alleged neighbor. 9. Nothing in Edgar Mora’s affidavit of service and or Alex Shafran’ affidavit of additional mailing establish service of anything and nothing in Ruin and Rothman’s fictitious plaintiff’s suit establish a contract or chain of assignment of the alleged debt. 10. Both Mora and Shefran’s affidavits were created, long after the litigation was commenced, and neither of such affidavits would be admissible in evidence as only photocopies were ever submitted and neither was accompanied by a certificate of conformity verifying the authenticity of the notaries who have acknowledged execution of such affidavits. 11. Under the circumstances presented here, the alleged plaintiff's counsel did not and could not have properly served the Affint because the entire matter was based on fraud and was frivolous as exemplified in the improperly certified complaint they filed in the instant action. 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1-a requires that "by signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person's knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in subsection 130-1.1(c)." 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1(c) defines conduct as frivolous if: (1) it is completely without merit in law and cannot be by a reasonable argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law ... or, (3) it asserts material factual statements that are false." 12. The alleged plaintiff's counsel administered improper service, because there is no documentary proof for a meritorious lawsuit in the instant case. No contract was filed with the law suit. 13. Rubin and Rothman LLC hired publicly advertised deceptive process servers to get a default judgment because the fictitious plaintiff could not prove a prima facie case. 14. Please see the link below to see the public internet notice that Rubin and Rothman’s Alex Shafran process server is known for debt deception and is currently under criminal investigation for sewer service. Please see page 32 here: http://issuu.com/prayerwarriorsneeded/docs/rubin_and_rothman_mailed_dismissal_fin al?mode=window&viewMode=singlePage 57


15. The affidavit of service submitted discloses three attempts at service at three different times, however, no showing of due diligence to serve by way of CPLR § 308.1 or 2 has been proffered. The fictitious plaintiff did not mail the summons at his or her last known residence, when he could have. 16. Thus, the affidavit of service, which is the only testimony submitted by the process server is insufficient to show that the process server exercised the due diligence necessary to serve someone under CPLR § 308.4. Leviton v.Unger, 56 AD3d 731 (2d Dept. 2008). 17. The affidavit of service states "served documents as last known address per attorney’s records", however, the statute requires that service be made at the actual place of business, dwelling place or usual place of abode of the person to be served. Notably absent from this list is any reference to the defendant's "last known address" and notably absent from plaintiff's opposition is any evidence that the served location meets any of the requirements of the statute. Merchants Ins. Group v. Coutrier; 59 AD3d 602 (2d Dept. 2009); State Insurance Fund v. Khondoker, 55 AD3d 525 (2d Dept. 2008). 18. Further, a failure to make a genuine inquiry about a defendant's whereabouts and place of employment has been held to fail the test of due diligence even where three service attempts have been made at defendant's home. McSorley v.Spear, 50 AD3d 652 (2d Dept. 2008). 19. Due diligence has been held to be absent when there has been no attempt to locate a business address, Sanders v. Elie, 29 AD3d 773 (2d Dept. 2006), where the process server failed to attempt to learn the working habits of defendant from neighbors, County of Nassau v. Yohannan, 34 AD3d 620 (2d Dept. 2006) or when there has been no attempt to check telephone listings or governmental records to ascertain where service may be made. Estate of Waterman v. Jones, 46AD3d 63 (2d Dept. 2007) Balkin, J. 20. There is no proof or evidence to verify the attached false affidavits of service because these affidavits falsely assert personal and mailing service while the alleged defendant did not live at the purported address reported. 21. An affidavit of service which merely alleges that the service of process statute has been complied with is insufficient to meet the proponent's initial burden of establishing proper service. 58


22. Affiant Miriam Snyder, moves for dismissal for lack of personal jurisdiction under various provisions, such as CPLR 3211. Affiant Miriam Snyder was not served the summons or complaint for this fictitious plaintiff fraud based law suit as detailed in the affidavits filed in this instant matter. 23. In summary, in order to secure default judgments, Rubin and Rothman LLC routinely file false affidavits of service claiming that people were served when they were not, and false affidavits of merit claiming that Defendants have personal knowledge of the facts necessary to secure a default judgment when they do not. Relying on these false affidavits, the Court issued another fraud based default judgment. Please see Rubin and Rothman’s corrupted pattern and practice of filing false affidavits as noted in exhibits 10-14 in Affiant’s Order to Show Cause affidavit 24. Rubin and Rothman have fraudulently obtained a default judgment. They wrongfully restrained the alleged defendant’s bank accounts and criminally garnished wages, This fraudulent judgment appeared on the affiant’s credit reports and prevented her them from obtaining employment, insurance, and affordable credit. 25. On behalf of justice, there is need to end these abhorrent practices once and for all. Affiant is entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, including declaratory relief, and damages. 26. Rubin and Rothman LLC history of filing disingenuous, misleading and false affidavits, coupled with their pattern and practice of filing non meritorious law suits, needs to be stopped. 27. Due diligence has been held to be absent when there has been no attempt to locate a business address, Sanders v. Elie, 29 AD3d 773 (2d Dept. 2006), where the process server failed to attempt to learn the working habits of defendant from neighbors, County of Nassau v. Yohannan, 34 AD3d 620 (2d Dept. 2006) or when there has been no attempt to check telephone listings or governmental records to ascertain where service may be made. Estate of Waterman v. Jones, 46AD3d 63 (2d Dept. 2007) Balkin, J.

28. There is no proof or evidence to verify the attached false affidavits of service because these affidavits falsely assert personal and mailing service while the alleged defendant did not live at the purported address reported. 29. An affidavit of service which merely alleges that the service of process statute has been complied with is insufficient to meet the proponent's initial burden of establishing proper service. 30. Affiant Miriam Snyder, moves for dismissal for lack of personal jurisdiction under various provisions, such as CPLR 3211. Affiant Miriam Snyder was not served the summons or complaint for this fictitious plaintiff fraud based law suit as detailed in the affidavits filed in this instant matter. 31. In summary, in order to secure default judgments, Rubin and Rothman LLC routinely file false affidavits of service claiming that people were served when they were not, and false affidavits of merit claiming that Defendants have personal knowledge of the facts necessary to secure a default judgment when they do not. Relying on these false affidavits, the Court issued another fraud based default judgment. Please see Rubin and Rothman’s corrupted pattern and practice of filing false affidavits as noted in exhibits 10-14 in Affiant’s Order to Show Cause affidavit 32. Rubin and Rothman have fraudulently obtained a default judgment. They wrongfully restrained the alleged defendant’s bank accounts and criminally garnished wages, This fraudulent judgment appeared on the affiant’s credit reports and prevented her them from obtaining employment, insurance, and affordable credit. 33. On behalf of justice, there is need to end these abhorrent practices once and for all. Affiant is entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, including declaratory relief, and damages. .

Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York, Second Department. December 2, 2008. In an action to recover damages for personal injuries, the defendants Yellow Cab SLS Jet Management Corp. and Manhattan Maintenance Corp. appeal from an order of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Schulman, J.), entered January 30, 2008, which denied their motion pursuant to CPLR 317 and 5015 to vacate a judgment of the same court entered September 13, 2005, upon their default in answering the complaint, which was in favor of the plaintiff and against them in the principal sum of $100,000. Ordered that the order is reversed, on the law, with costs, and that branch of the appellants' motion which was pursuant to CPLR 5015 (a) (4) to vacate the judgment entered September 13, 2005, is granted, and the remaining branches of the motion are denied as academic. It is "`axiomatic that the failure to serve process in an action leaves the court without personal jurisdiction over the defendant, and all subsequent proceedings are thereby rendered null and void'" (Elm Mgt. Corp. v Sprung, 33 AD3d 753, 755 [2006], quotingMcMullen v Arnone, 79 AD2d 496, 499 [1981]; Matter of Cartier v County of Nassau, 281 AD2d 477, 478 [2001]). Under CPLR 5015 (a) (4), a default judgment must be vacated once a movant demonstrates lack of personal jurisdiction (see Citibank v Keller, 133 AD2d 63, 64-65 [1987]; see also Harkless v Reid, 23 AD3d 622, 622623 [2005]; Steele v Hempstead Pub Taxi, 305 AD2d 401, 402[2003]). Here, the process server served the summons with notice upon a receptionist in the appellants' offices, and there is no evidence that she was an officer, director, managing agent, cashier, or an agent authorized by appointment to accept service on their behalf (see CPLR 311 [a] [1]; Gleizer v American Airlines, Inc., 30 AD3d 376 [2006]). Accordingly, jurisdiction was never obtained over the appellants, and the Supreme Court should have granted that branch of their motion which was pursuant to CPLR 5015 (a) (4) to vacate the default judgment.

Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York. March 13, 2012. Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC, New York, N.Y. (Edward N. Gewirtz of counsel), for appellant. Rubin & Rothman, LLC, Islandia, N.Y. (Elizabeth T. Vrachnas of counsel), for respondent. In an action to recover damages for breach of a lease, the defendant Anna Gansburg appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Rockland County (Weiner, J.), dated April 11, 2011, which denied her motion pursuant to CPLR 5015(a)(4) to vacate a judgment of the same court entered September 10, 2010, upon her default in appearing or answering the complaint, pursuant to CPLR 2004 for leave to serve a late answer, pursuant to CPLR 510 to transfer venue of the action to Kings County, and pursuant to CPLR 3211(a)(8) to dismiss the complaint insofar as asserted against her. ORDERED that the order is reversed, on the law, with costs, and the matter is remitted to the Supreme Court, Rockland County, for a hearing to determine whether the defendant Anna Gansburg was properly served with process, and for a new determination of the motion thereafter. Under CPLR 5015(a)(4), a default must be vacated once a movant demonstrates lack of personal jurisdiction ( see *870 Hossain v. Fab Cab Corp., 57 A.D.3d 484, 868 N.Y.S.2d 746; Matter of Qadeera Tonezia D., 55 A.D.3d 606, 866 N.Y.S.2d 223). A party who moves to vacate a judgment entered on default is relieved of any obligation to demonstrate a reasonable excuse for the default and a potentially meritorious defense when lack of personal jurisdiction is asserted as the ground for vacatur ( see Deutsche Bank Natl. Trust Co. v. Pestano, 71 A.D.3d 1074, 899 N.Y.S.2d 269; Harkless v. Reid, 23 A.D.3d 622, 622–623, 806 N.Y.S.2d 214). While “[a] process server's sworn affidavit of service ordinarily constitutes prima facie evidence of proper service” ( Bankers Trust Co. of Cal. v. Tsoukas, 303 A.D.2d 343, 343– 344, 756 N.Y.S.2d 92; see Deutsche Bank Natl. Trust Co. v. Pestano, 71 A.D.3d at 1074, 899 N.Y.S.2d 269), where “there is a sworn denial that delivery to the defendant was accomplished, the affidavit of service is rebutted and the plaintiff must establish jurisdiction by a preponderance of the evidence at a hearing” ( Bankers Trust Co. of Cal., 73

Here, the defendant Anna Gansburg (hereinafter the defendant) stated in an affidavit that she did not reside at the address where copies of the summons and complaint were left by the process server, and submitted documents in support of her allegation that she resided elsewhere. Accordingly, a hearing is required to determine whether the defendant was properly served. Thus, the matter must be remitted to the Supreme Court, Rockland County, for such a hearing and a new determination of the defendant's motion thereafter.

Under CPLR 5015 (a) (4), a default judgment must be vacated once a movant demonstrates lack of personal jurisdiction (see Citibank v Keller, 133 AD2d 63, 64-65 [1987]; see also Harkless v Reid, 23 AD3d 622, 622623 [2005]; Steele v Hempstead Pub Taxi, 305 AD2d 401, 402[2003]).

28 A.D.3d 468 811 N.Y.S.2d 595 2006 NY Slip Op 02526 STACIE SCHWERNER, Respondent, v. CONSTANTINO SAGONAS, Appellant. 2005-03047. Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Second Department. April 4, 2006. In an action to recover damages for personal injuries, the defendant appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Taylor, J.), dated January 11, 2005, which, inter alia, denied his motion to vacate an order of the same court dated September 21, 2004, granting the plaintiff's motion for leave to enter a judgment upon his failure to appear or answer the complaint. Ordered that the order is modified, on the law, by deleting the provision thereof denying that branch of the defendant's motion which was to vacate the order dated September 21, 2004, on the ground of improper service of process, and the matter is remitted to the Supreme Court, Queens County, for a hearing on the issue of whether proper service was effected and, thereafter, for a new determination of that branch of the defendant's motion; as so modified, the order is affirmed, with costs payable to the defendant. On this record, the defendant's sworn denial of receipt of process was sufficient to rebut the affidavit of substituted service. Accordingly, the plaintiff must establish personal jurisdiction by a preponderance of the evidence at a hearing (see Verille v. Kopic, 304 AD2d 823 [2003]; Bankers Trust Co. of Cal. v. Tsoukas, 303 AD2d 343, 343344 [2003]; Kingsland Group v. Pose, 296 AD2d 440 [2002]). The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit. Upon remittal, if the Supreme Court determines that it acquired personal jurisdiction over the defendant, then the matter shall be set down for an inquest on damages, on a date to be determined by the Supreme Court.

303 A.D.2d 343 756 N.Y.S.2d 92 BANKERS TRUST COMPANY OF CALIFORNIA, N.A., Respondent, v. STEVE TSOUKAS, Appellant, et al., Defendants. Decided March 3, 2003. Ritter, J.P., McGinity, Townes and Mastro, JJ., concur. Ordered that the appeal from the order is dismissed; and it is further, Ordered that the judgment is reversed, on the law, with costs, the order is vacated, and the matter is remitted to the Supreme Court, Richmond County, for a hearing, to be held with all convenient speed, to determine whether personal jurisdiction was properly obtained over the defendant Steve Tsoukas. The appeal from the intermediate order must be dismissed because the right of direct appeal therefrom terminated with the entry of judgment in the action (see Matter of Aho, 39 NY2d 241, 248 [1976]). The issues raised on the appeal from the order are brought up for review and have been considered on the appeal from the judgment (CPLR 5501 [a] [1]). CPLR 308 (2) authorizes service, inter alia, by delivery of the summons and complaint within the state to a person of suitable age and discretion at the defendant's dwelling place and mailing the summons to the defendant's last known residence. The plaintiff bears the ultimate burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that jurisdiction over the defendant was obtained by proper service of process (see Frankel v Schilling, 149 AD2d 657, 659 [1989]). A process server's sworn [303 A.D.2d 344] affidavit of service ordinarily constitutes prima facie evidence of proper service pursuant to CPLR 308 (2) (see Kaywood v Cigpak, Inc., 258 AD2d 623 [1999]; Manhattan Sav. Bank v Kohen, 231 AD2d 499, 500 [1996]). Where, however, as in this case, there is a sworn denial that delivery to the defendant was accomplished, the affidavit of service is rebutted and the plaintiff must establish jurisdiction by a preponderance of the evidence at a hearing (see Bank of Am. Natl. Trust & Sav. Assn. v Herrick, 233 AD2d 351, 352[1996]; Frankel v Schilling, supra). Even if a defendant eventually acquires actual notice of the lawsuit, actual notice alone will not sustain the service or subject a person to the court's jurisdiction when there has not been compliance with prescribed conditions of service (see McDonald v Ames Supply Co., 22 NY2d 111 [1968]; Bank of Am. Natl. Trust & Sav. Assn. v Herrick, supra; Frankel v Schilling, supra). In support of its motion for summary judgment, the plaintiff submitted the affidavit of service in the underlying action, which established, prima facie, that the appellant was properly served pursuant to CPLR 308 (2). However, the appellant submitted the affidavit of his wife, in which she averred that the process server threw a copy of the pleadings at 77


the steps of the closed back door of the appellant's home without any explanation of the nature of those documents. Contrary to the determination of the Supreme Court, the element of delivery pursuant to CPLR 308 (2) was not satisfied by the allegations contained in the affidavits submitted by the appellant. A process server may satisfy the delivery requirement "by leaving a copy of the summons outside the door of the person to be served upon refusal of `a person of suitable age and discretion' to open the door to accept it, provided the process server informs the person to whom delivery is being made that this is being done" (Bossuk v Steinberg, 58 NY2d 916, 918 [1983], quoting CPLR 308 [2]). A defendant can rebut a process server's affidavit by a detailed and specific contradiction of the allegations in the process server's affidavit. Here, a conflict exists as to whether service was properly made, and the appellant is, therefore, entitled to a hearing on this issue (see Bank of Am. Natl. Trust & Sav. Assn. v Herrick, supra at 352; Frankel v Schilling, supra). In light of this determination, at this juncture, we do not reach the appellant's remaining contentions.

the defendant's sworn denial of receipt of process was sufficient to rebut the proffered affidavit of service and the plaintiff, therefore, was required to establish personal jurisdiction by a preponderance of the evidence at a hearing (see Schwerner v Sagonas, 28 AD3d 468 [2006]; Bankers Trust Co. of Cal. v Tsoukas, 303 AD2d 343, 343344 [2003]; Kingsland Group v Pose, 296 AD2d 440 [2002]). It is "axiomatic that the failure to serve process in an action leaves the court without personal jurisdiction over the defendant, and all subsequent proceedings are thereby rendered null and void" (McMullen v Arnone, 79 AD2d 496, 499 [1981]). Accordingly, the Supreme Court erred in determining the plaintiff's motion before resolving the threshold issue of jurisdiction (see Pena v Mittleman, 179 AD2d 607 [1992]). In light of this determination, we do not reach the defendant's remaining contentions. Prudenti, P.J., Adams, Rivera and Lifson, JJ., concur.

Pursuant to the below Rules, alleged Defendant Miriam Snyder, hereby moves the Court to dismiss the alleged Plaintiff's Complaint with prejudice and vacate the voided default judgment. This Affidavit and the Exhibits and Memorandum in Exhibit D are mailed in because the alleged defendant Miriam Snyder lives and lived in the Bronx when this case was maliciously initiated. 3. This Keith Rothman vexatious law suit was brought in the improper venue, which was neither the venue in which the alleged debtor entered into the alleged contract or where the debtor resided at the time of commencement of the action. Attorney Keith Rothman initiated this lawsuit obstructing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act §1692i via bringing this legal action in an improper venue. This was done maliciously and to harass. 4. The alleged defendant Miriam Snyder states it is a transportation hardship to get to this improper venue court. Consequently, she is submitting this Order to Show Cause, Affidavit, and the Memorandum and Exhibits in Exhibit D via U.S. certified mail. The bases for this Motion are summarized below and are set forth in the accompanying Exhibits and Memorandum.

K. COMMON LAW FRAUD

7. The facts in this matter via the alleged plaintiff falsified and defective papers conclude that the alleged plaintiff had not only failed to comply with the notice provision of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, but more importantly, lacked standing to pursue the alleged debt as the Plaintiff has not properly identified itself to this court or to this alleged defendant. 8. In this matter, attorney Keith Rothman used Ford Motor Credit as the fictitious plaintiff. Attorney Keith Rothman played three roles in this matter. He impersonated Ford Motor Credit, the alleged plaintiff, the debt collector and the attorney for the plaintiff. Please see the attached exhibit D, which is the alleged Defendant’s Miriam Snyder’s affidavit dated June 25, 2012. In this affidavit please see exhibits 1C, 1D and 7 and paragraph 12 as proof of Keith Rothman’s impersonation crimes. 9. Keith Rothman lacks the legal capacity to bring the lawsuit. That is, Keith Rothman is trying to stand in Ford Motor Credit shoes and does not have the right to do so. Standing involves the question of whether the party bringing the action has sufficient interest in the controversy so that he or she is the proper person to bring the action. In this instant matter, Keith Rothman’s impersonation crimes obstructed the ability to identify the true person bringing the action. Please see the above noted exhibits. 10. The court should not proceed in the absence of a person who should be a party. CPLR 3211(a)(10) provides statutory support for a motion to dismiss in the absence of such a person. 11. There is no evidence of Ford Motor Credit in this matter. By definition a fictitious plaintiff is a person appearing in the writ, complaint, or record as the plaintiff in a suit, but who in reality does not exist, or who is ignorant of the suit and the use of his name in it. The alleged Plaintiff has failed to establish itself as the real party in interest. It is a contempt of court to sue in the name of a fictitious party. BLACK’S LAW DICTIONARY, 6th Ed. (13th reprint, 1998), p. 624. 12. This means that Keith Rothman should be sanctioned for contempt again, for the replicated filing of cases in court that have no real party, no standing, are frivolous and vexatious. In addition, Keith Rothman should be sanctioned and prosecuted for leading an indisputable attorney sharing in fees conspiracy against rights via enjoining attorneys Mark Braverman and Marianne SmithStahl and other persons in the illegal conduct of impersonating Ford Motor Credit and extorting money via fraud judgment creation. 83


13. Each of the attorneys signing their names in this matter, individually and collectively, participated in this deceptive debt collection criminal extortion case via sharing in fees earned there from, and doing such in VIOLATION OF 22 NYCRR 1200.41-A , DR 7-111. Attorneys and paralegals in New York may not split fees. This is a violation of the Lawyer’s Code of Professional Responsibility and subject to disciplinary action. See DR3-102 (22 NYCRR § 1200.17). Please see the fairing in fees unwarranted attorney signatures in Exhibit D, specifically exhibit 1B and 1D. 14. Please see Keith Rothman’s other fictitious and frivolous law suit sanctions noted in Exhibit D, which is the alleged Defendant’s Miriam Snyder’s affidavit dated June 25, 2012. In Exhibit D, please see exhibits 10-14. These exhibits exemplify Keith Rothman’s reckless assault and money extortion crimes on consumers in New York State. He is a consumer terrorist that must be stopped. 15. In this matter, Attorney Keith Rothman has impersonated Ford Motor Credit, criminally enjoined attorneys Mark Braverman and Marianne Smith-Stahl, so Rothman could act as the plaintiff, submitted a falsified sewer service affidavit, refused to produce a contract, and obstructed the requirements under CPLR § 3215. All of this was done to improperly seek default judgment because he did not have the requisite proof of facts constituting the claim. 16. The alleged plaintiff could not provide the Court with documentary proof of the alleged claim in the instant action establishing plaintiff's prima facie case, including the contract or account number of the debt alleged, because Ford Motor Credit is being used as a fictitious plaintiff.

17. Furthermore, Attorney Keith Rothman’s failure to establish the real party is also highlighted in his asserts of material factual statements that are false, as exemplified in his affidavits. For example, the alleged plaintiff’s out of state Arizona falsified affidavit of merit, is by a non-titled employee of attorney Rothman’s office and as such is not an affidavit made by the party as required under CPLR § 3215. 18. If Ford Motor Credit was the real party and not a fictitious plaintiff, a real party affidavit of merit would have been easily accessible and submitted to the court, as required under the law. 19. Instead a Rubin and Rothman Ford Motor Credit fictitious hearsay affidavit of merit was filed in the court as a false instrument. This affidavit obstructed the statutory conformity rules. This 84


Keith Rothman CPLR § 3215 falsified affidavit was notarized in Arizona. Please see exhibit 1E attached in exhibit D of this affidavit. This is Rothman’s falsified affidavit of merit. All of these facts show that in this instant case there was never any meritorious intent. All of the acts were undertaken deceptively and to primarily harass and maliciously injure the alleged defendant and the criminals did so by effectuating an erroneous scheme to defraud default judgment. 20. Under the circumstances presented in this matter, the plaintiff did not and could not have properly certified the complaint he filed in the instant action. Please see exhibit D attached, and exhibits 1C and 1D in Exhibit D. 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1-a requires that "by signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person's knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in subsection 130-1.1(c)." 22 NYCRR § 130 1.1(c) defines conduct as frivolous if: (1) it is completely without merit in law and cannot be supported by a reasonable argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law; (2) it is undertaken primarily to delay or prolong the resolution of the litigation, or to harass or maliciously injure another; or (3) it asserts material factual statements that are false."

21. The alleged Plaintiff cannot show prima-facie evidence to bring this action nor has the alleged Plaintiff offered any proof of ownership of the alleged obligation that is the subject of this claim. The alleged plaintiff has not produced a contract that reflects a possible agreement with the alleged Defendant. The contract sued upon is not attached, and thus the alleged Plaintiff has failed to state a cause of action. 22. Plaintiff's failure to state a cause of action or claim upon which relief can be granted is exemplified in the fact that there is no documentary link or other sufficient showing of standing. 23. The alleged Plaintiff’s defective papers as epitomized in exhibits 1A-1H, in exhibit D, constitute serious misrepresentation and construed fraud upon the court. Please take judicial notice that the only identification of the Plaintiff appears in the caption of the Complaint and the first paragraph where the Plaintiff is identified simply as, “Ford Motor Credit”. The Plaintiff’s name is not set off or specified within the body of the Complaint or in any other pleading nor is any description 85


provided to explain the legal nature of the entity. 24. The last insert in the fictitious plaintiff’s complaint clearly states: WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT. ANY INFORMATION WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. THIS COMMUNICATION IS FROM A DEBT COLLECTOR. Ford Motor Credit Company is not a debt collector. These types of defects and inconsistent statements, coupled with conspirator Marianne Smith-Stahl’s signature, on the face of the complaint, exemplify fraudulent and intentional deceptive debt collection practices. These attorney acts are criminal, calculated and violate Judiciary Law § 487. These deceptive attorney acts establish intent to deceive. 25. N.Y. Judiciary Law § 487 inter alia provide that an attorney is guilty of a misdemeanor and is liable for treble damages to the aggrieved party if the attorney:". . . is guilty of any deceit or collusion, or consents to any deceit or collusion, with the intent to deceive the court or any party." See McKinney's Judiciary Law § 487; see also Oakes v. Muka, 56 A.D.3d 1057, 868 N.Y.S.2d 796 (3d Dept. 2008).

26. Additional deceit and collusion is established in Conspirator Marianne Smith-Stahl’s signature on the face of the complaint. Her name as an attorney was used on the complaint because in that calculated capacity Keith Rothman was proudly impersonating Ford Motor Credit Company. She was impersonating as the fictitious plaintiff Keith Rothman attorney. The fictitious plaintiff, Keith Rothman had no capacity to sue and extorted money and defrauded Miriam Snyder and the court. 27. The issue of capacity to sue may be raised by motion to dismiss where the defect appears on the face of the complaint. Hershel California Fruit Products Co. v. Hunt Foods, 111 F. Supp. 603 (1975), quoting Coburn v. Coleman, 75 F. Supp. 107 (1974); Klebano v. New York Produce Exchange, 344 F.2d (2nd Cir. 1965). 28. In this matter, the complaint is insufficient, fraudulent, based solely on conclusory statements, and unsupported by factual allegations. This complaint must be dismissed with prejudice. Please see: Melito v. Interboro Mut. Indem. Ins. Co, 73 AD2d 819, 820. 29. Additionally, Rubin & Rothman, LLC malice and deception is further exemplified in their obstruction of FDCPA (§1692i): which requires Legal actions to be brought in proper venue. Legal actions taken must be brought in the proper venue, which is either the venue in which the debtor entered into the contract or where the debtor resides at the time of commencement of the action. 86


30. In this matter, the alleged Defendant Miriam Snyder was not served period. She lived in the Bronx and was never served. This case was never supposed to be in Long Island. There was and is no jurisdiction. 31. The case was filed in Long Island to inflict transportation hardship and to additionally harass alleged defendant Snyder. This vexatious and not merited case causes and caused a transportation hardship as it is and was a burden to have to come to Long island from the Bronx to fight off this frivolous Keith Rothman fictitious plaintiff law suit. 32. Civil practice summons rules clearly state that the summons is served by PERSONAL DELIVERY. The Plaintiff’s fraudulent Affidavit of Service is additionally in violation of procedures set forth for serving a commercial summons in that there is no personal service and or mailing receipts to validate sending the summons and or complaint to the alleged Defendant and or in compliance with rules set forth. 33. The files show that the Plaintiff failed to offer proof that the mailing of process was made by first class mail and or certified mail, as required. Additionally, the alleged Defendant has copied the entire file and there are no mailing receipts whatsoever because Plaintiff’s entire case is based off of fraud, misrepresentation, and attorney misconduct in filing non procedural, defective, harassing, improper, and fraudulent documents in the court. See all of the attached exhibits in this affidavit and in the attached exhibit D affidavit. 34. Again and for the record, Miriam Snyder was never served any summons or complaint regarding this matter. This was done because this was a premeditated vexatious, malicious, and non-merited claim. This ongoing Rubin & Rothman LLC debt collection fraud and harassment has maliciously continued into 2012. Please see exhibits 1H and 2 in exhibit D attached. 35. In summary, the alleged defendant was never served any papers regarding this instant matter. She was notified of this case via garnishment and criminal income stalking and theft as noted in the exhibits. Keith Rothman failed to comply with any of the debt collection provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Act. 36. Please see exhibits 8 and 9 in exhibit D. These are credit reports showing that the Ford Motor Credit alleged and non-existent debt in this matter was paid in full and never late. The Plaintiffs approached this case viciously, in bad faith, with unclean hands and with malice. They were unscrupulous. No money whatsoever is owed to Ford Motor Credit. Keith Rothman literally took an outdated good debt and used criminal defraud to scheme tactics that enjoined the court to 87


criminally and magically turn such into a fraud based bad debt. 37. Keith Rothman thereafter, under the impersonation of Ford Motor Credit used the courts to create a fraud judgment to scandalize Miriam Snyder’s name at her place of employment via contacting the employer and garnishing her check. Miriam Snyder lost her job without cause or reason within 30 days of the alleged Plaintiff’s garnishment. The causal relationship and timing of the false instrument garnishment filing at Snyder’s place of employment, effectuated termination, and these tactics exemplify malice and immeasurable harm to her professional reputation. 38. Plaintiff's actions, as stated above, constituted a violation of §1692d since their natural consequences were calculated to harass, oppress and abuse the defendant at her place of employment without authority of law. 39. Attorney Keith Rothman’s vexatious, unscrupulous, deceptive and scandalous debt collection practices has stalked and assaulted the defendant for over nine years.

40. Miriam Snyder the alleged defendant asks the court to consider, inter alia, the frequency and persistence of Rubin and Rothman, LLC repeated volatile debt collection practices. Please see exhibits 10-14 and paragraphs 4-7 in Exhibit D exemplifying such. Please note that under 1692k(b) and (c). and Cavallaro v. Shapiro & Kreisman, 933 F. Supp. 1148 (EDNY 1996), a single violation is sufficient to establish liability. 41. Failure to provide Full Disclosure is Fraud, predicated upon violation of Due Process of Law. Fraud is gaining at the loss of another using trickery or deception. Fraud vitiates a Contract. Since the above actions were a nullity, no valid judgment was secured in this matter and therefore the alleged plaintiff’s actions in obtaining a judgment and securing a wage order violated §1692e and 1692f of the FDCPA. 42. Attorney Keith Rothman’s robo-signed false instruments filed in the court, coupled with the robostamped, no seal, and non-authenticated judgment exemplifies fraud in and on the court. Above all, this dismissal is required under the statute of fraud. No written note or memorandum of agreement exists that is signed by the persons bound by the alleged contract's terms or their authorized representatives. 43. The intentional misrepresentations in this matter included: (1) knowingly false allegations contained within the underlying complaint that attorney Keith Rothman was Ford Motor Credit (2) the submission of multiple false affidavits as noted above and in Exhibit D.( 3) Robo-signed 88


fraudulent business records (4) Collusion between multiple unknown attorneys for purposes of extorting monies from Miriam Snyder (5) Defective and fraudulent, insufficient, based solely on conclusory statements and unsupported by factual allegations complaint and summons (6) no mailing receipts (7) Robo-signed fraudulent judgment (8) Maliciously contacting Miriam Snyder’ employer without authority, (10) Use of the defraud judgment to steal money via a criminal garnish of Miriam Snyder’s pay check and the unauthorized freezing of her bank accounts, (11) Breach of Privacy Acts;

97


THIRD: Nassau County Courts have no jurisdiction over this matter as the alleged respondent lives in the Bronx, New York and Ford Motor Credit is located in another state. See exhibit 2, acknowledging the fact that Ford Motor Credit knew of the Defendants correct address, but fraudulently, frivolously, and harassingly litigated the matter outside the jurisdiction of alleged Defendant’s residence, in violation to CPLR Commercial Claim procedures. FOURTH: The alleged Respondent does not owe any money to the attorney and or Ford Motor Credit and the fraudulent debt cannot be validated, because no money is owed.

FIFTH:

The Alleged Defendant seeks an immediate vacate of the judgment and dismissal of the complaint

based on the fact that the entire matter is based on fraud, specifically, misrepresentation of facts, no personal or proper service as required, a Plaintiff defective/fraudulent affidavit of service citing improper service rule codes, and above all because the alleged defendant owes no money to the Plaintiff and or his attorneys AND THE DEBT CAN NOT BE VALIDATED. SIXTH:

The alleged Defendant seeks the immediate vacate of the attached garnishment because it is based

on fraud and greed, the alleged Defendant owes no money whatsoever, the debt can not be validated.

SEVENTH:

The Alleged Respondent will win on the merits of the case because she does not owe the Plaintiff

any money and Petitioner’s claims cannot be validated.

EIGHTH:

The Alleged Respondent does not have any outstanding debt with Ford

Motor Credit. NINTH:

The alleged Defendants First Cause of Defense is that the alleged Defendant does not reside in the

county in which this action is brought. See Exhibits 2 and 3, verifying and confirming Alleged Defendant’s place of residence. Second, as a result of Defendants non/improper service and fraud, embedded in Commercial Claims Procedural Violations and the Plaintiff’s inability to validate the debt, the entire matter must be dismissed and the judgment vacated. The fraud is exhibited in the attorney’s willful misrepresentation in the citing of CPLR 3215 (g) on his Affidavit of Additional Mailing, when this citation has nothing to do with serving a commercial transaction notice and or summons. In fact, this citation and or authority is supposed to be used when more than one

year has elapsed between the date of the default and the filing of the motion. The attorney improperly served the default judgment motion upon respondent misrepresenting CPLR 3215(G). THIS IS FRAUD! Third, the Plaintiff complaint is in violation of Section 1809-A of the Uniform City Court Act, in that the Plaintiff does not have its principal office in the State of New York.

98


TENTH:

The Plaintiff’s affidavit of Additional Mailing is fraudulent, improper, and defective and

exemplifies Plaintiff conspiracy to defraud and convolute via using CPLR 3215 as authority to serve a summons and or complaint, when CPLR 3215 is for judgment for excess where counterclaim interposed. See Defendant Exhibit 4, Plaintiff’s fraud and defective Affidavit of Additional Mailing sworn August 5, 2004 citing CPLR 3215 as authority for service. See Defendant Exhibit 8, citing CPLR 3215.G authority, which has nothing to do with summons service and or additional mailing rules. ELEVENTH: See alleged Defendant’s Exhibit 5, which is the Plaintiff’s fraudulent, non procedural and conspiracy to defraud the courts Affidavit of Service. This Plaintiff’s Affidavit of Service is non procedural, epitomizes “sewer service” of legal documents, and is in violation of Section 212.06 and Section 214.41aCommercial claims procedure. Summons, see Defendants Exhibit 6, Section 212.06, Civil practice summons rules clearly state that the summons is served by PERSONAL DELIVERY. The Plaintiff’s fraudulent Affidavit of Service is additionally in violation of procedures set forth for serving a commercial summons in that there is no personal service and or mailing receipts to validate sending the summons and or complaint to the Defendant and or in compliance with rules set forth .

TWELFTH:

Up to today’s date the application and the files show that the Plaintiff failed to offer proof that the

mailing of process was made by first class mail and or certified mail, as required. Defendant has copied the entire file and there are no mailing receipts whatsoever because Plaintiff’s entire case is based off of fraud, misrepresentation, and attorney misconduct in filing non procedural, defective, improper, and fraudulent documents in the court. See Defendant exhibits exemplifying such.

THIRTEENTH: Pursuant to CPLR 5015 the alleged Defendant has presented excusable default via Plaintiff non service documentation, Plaintiff Affidavits epitomizing willful sewer serving to a wrong address, when personal service is required. Defendant has provided evidence substantiating her correct address the same date/time frame this fraud was being initiated August 2004. Plaintiff fraud, misrepresentation and attorney misconduct are exemplified in the Plaintiff use of defective forms, citing improper rules and plaintiff failure to provide any mailing receipts. Above all, Plaintiff fails to establish and or present any evidence that the alleged defendant received a copy of the summons and complaint prior to the default judgment being entered against her. Additionally, the alleged defendant decrees lack of jurisdiction.

FOURTEENTH:

The Alleged Defendant Snyder specifically objects to the allegations of the complaint and

asserts affirmative defenses as noted above. This demonstrates that Snyder has a meritorious defense to the action (Beverage Distributors of Nevada, Inc. v SchenleyIndustries,Inc.,supra; In view of the above, and the well established public policy that favors a determination on the merits wherever possible, so that the parties may have their day in court to litigate the issues (see, Crooks v Lear Taxi Corp., 136 AD2d 452 [1st Dept 1988]; Stark v 99


Marine Power & Light Co., 99 AD2d 753 [2d Dept 1984]), the Alleged Defendant Snyder’s motion to vacate the default judgment should be granted. FIFTEENTH: The alleged Defendant further states that she has requisitioned and copied the entire file, and that there is no certification and or proof of mailing of any demand letter as required pursuant to UDCA section 1803A.a. This is another procedural violation exemplifying attorney frivolous conduct in litigating civil matters.

SIXTEENTH: The Alleged Defendant attests to the fact that a copy of this affidavit and Order to Show Cause will be mailed via U.S. Certified mail to the attorney incorporating this fraud upon court acknowledgment. Rubin and Rothman, LLC Attorneys At Law 1787 Veterans Highway, Suite 32 P.O. Box 9003 Islandia, N.Y. 11749

AFFIDAVIT OF MERIT SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION WITH VALIDATING LAW ON THE DOCUMENTED ATTORNEY FRAUD AND MISREPRESENTATION.

The alleged defendant further reinstates that she has requisitioned the files again and there IS NO PROOF OF SERVICE MAIL RECEIPTS for anything. Defendant objects fully to placing any backdated mailing receipts in these files. When one reviews the false allegations made in the attorney’s documents, one can see that the attorney violated his ethical obligation to be truthful. He used false papers to lie and say he served the alleged defendant when he did not. He used sewer service documentation to subterfuge the fraud and to substitute required personal service procedure. Thereafter, he used defective forms and obstructed procedural rules to defraud the court. See exhibits. An attorney's reputation for veracity is the measure by which he/she is regarded and which holds one in good stead with courts and fellow attorneys. The presumption of good faith dealing which this Court assumes all attorneys conduct themselves, should not be cavalierly dissipated for the simple expediency of attempting to prevail on a motion at all costs.

Counsel needs to be reminded of the Disciplinary Rules contained within the Code of Professional Responsibility. Specifically DR 1-102 [22 NYCRR § 1200.3] providing in pertinent part that a lawyer shall not engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; or engage in conduct which is prejudicial to the administration of justice; and DR 7-102 (A)( 5) [ 22NYCRR § 1200.33] which provides a lawyer shall not knowingly make a false statement of law or fact. (see Matter of Aaron, 232 AD2d 119 (1997), where the Appellate Division, Second Department found submitting a false affidavit, affirmation to the Bankruptcy Court 100


violated DR 1-102(A) (4) and (5) and DR 7-102(A) (5); and Matter of Kramer, 235 AD2d 87 (1997), lv denied 91 NY2d 805, lv dismissed 93 NY 883, cert denied 528 US 869, where the Appellate Division, First Department found that making false statements in an affidavit to the District Court violated DR 1-102(A) (4) and (5) and DR7-102 (A) (5) ). As was stated in the case of Matter of Schildhaus, 23 AD2d 152 (1st Dept 1965), affd 16 NY2d 748, appeal dismissed, cert denied by Schildhaus v Association of the Bar of the City of New York, 382 US 370 (1966).

Attorney Rothman should be held strictly accountable for his statements, documents, procedural violations, obstruction of justice, and unethical conduct which reasonably could have the effect of deceiving or misleading the court in the action to be taken in a matter pending before it. The court is entitled to rely upon the accuracy of any statement of a relevant fact unequivocally made by an attorney in the course of judicial proceedings.

Part 130-1.1 of the Rules of the Chief Administrator [22 NYCRR 130-1.1] provides for the imposition of financial sanctions for frivolous conduct in civil litigation. Under Part 130-1.1(c)(3) frivolous conduct includes the assertion of material factual statements that are false. The defective attorney Affidavit of Additional Mailing, his fraudulent, sewer service, non procedural Affidavit of Service, and his misrepresenting CPLR 3215 (g), and his imaginary, fictitious, invalidated debt created out of thin air, all exemplify assertion of material factual statements that are false, procedurally incorrect, and fictitious.

The affidavit of service cannot be validated, just like the fraudulent out of thin air created debt, cannot be validated. There are no mailing receipts and there was no personal service, despite this being a procedural requirement. There is no proof of MAILING ANYTHING in the file as of today because the alleged defendant was not served or mailed notice of this fraud or she would have answered, like she is doing now.

Additionally, the attorney frivolous and contemptible conduct is further exemplified in his CPLR 3215 attached Affidavit of Additional Mailing. This frivolous non procedural form epitomizes the creation of a document to appear as if it cites authority to serve notice, when it is pure fraud, in that it is improper, misrepresents, violates the rules for servicing a summons, and has no proof of mailings. The citation of CPLR 3215 on the attorneys affidavit, when CPLR 3215 has nothing to do whatsoever with serving a summons, is a prime example of frivolous litigation.

Defendant is invoking a counter claim for the attorney fraud, misrepresentation and frivolous civil litigation acts. Defendant asks the courts to award the $5,000 to the Defendant for having to work hard in correcting, outlining, researching and unraveling the attorney’s multifaceted fraud, misrepresentation and frivolous litigation stratagems. The courts should award the defendant, vacate the judgment and dismiss the complaint based on the unethical, fraud based, and procedurally corrupted documents and attorney conduct. 101


Moreover, the court should set an example via sanction so these corrupted practices will discontinue immediately. Defendant Snyder respectfully requests that the court sanction the attorney and award monies to the Defendant for being victimized by this indisputable, contemptible, and documented attorney misrepresentation and mischief. Please see the below exhibits which validate and document the Plaintiff’s fraud and Defendants defense. Thank you.

1. Miriam Snyder is a natural person residing in Bronx New York. As such, the aggrieved natural person demands that the attached frivolous complaint and its fraud based judgment be dismissed based on law and the detailed fraud below in accordance with the attached alleged plaintiff’s fraudulent and defective documents that exemplify fraud on the court. Please see exhibit 1 showing that this 2004 case is still being used in 2012 to terrorize and harm affiant requiring the filing of this counterclaim based on Attorney Keith Rothman’s unregulated fraud. 2. Ms. Snyder files this affidavit of truth demanding dismissal of the fraudulent judgment as a matter of law. The alleged Plaintiff’s acts are criminal and reckless and as such Ms. Snyder is filing this criminal affidavit with the Attorney General, NYC Police Chief Kelly and the FBI. 3. Keith Rothman, individually and as a member of Rubin & Rothman LLC, has engaged in criminal expert debt collection fraud, deceptive practices, and defamed and injured affiant’s reputation by his fraudulent and

non-authenticated, non-seal bearing and non-wet ink

signed judgment, a published writing. Keith Rothman and his racketeers are using the courts for the criminal administration of Torts, in accordance with the tort definition in Black’s Law Dictionary 4th Edition. Affiant Miriam Snyder seeks relief and damages for these crimes, pursuant to every remedy secured in the FDCPA Section 813. Civil liability, N.Y. Exec. Law § 63(12) (McKinney) and N.Y. Gen. Bus. Law §§ 349 and 350. 4. Attorney Keith Rothman and his criminal debt collection enterprise have a history of repeated criminal and unscrupulous debt collection acts similar to matters addressed in this case. For instance, recently they were sanctioned $10,000 for filing frivolous debt collection law suits that had no lawful evidence. Please see: LVNV Funding LLC, Plaintiff, v. Annetta Guest, Defendant. 2091-10 City Court of Mount Vernon, Decided on May 29, 2012. This case is located at: https://www.plol.org/Pages/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fPages%2fSecure%2fDocument.aspx%3fd %3dwmmFBB%252fuxTRX86gr5ucwtw%253d%253d%26l%3dCases%26rp%3d4&d=wmmFB B%2fuxTRX86gr5ucwtw%3d%3d&l=Cases&rp=4&u=mirisni@aol.com&UUID=15cde5c2-f67d4cfe-b024-1f354b0d2a34 5. A recent investigative report by MFY Legal Services, Inc. found that in 2007, Rubin & Rothman filed 31,661 cases in New York City alone. See Consumer Rights Project, “Justice Disserved,” June 2008. The defendant appeared in court in only 9.29 percent of those cases. Thus, the vast 108


majority of those cases resulted in default judgments against the consumer because the consumers were never served. 6. As in this case and in nearly all of Attorney Keith Rothman’s debt collection lawsuits, Keith Rothman and his racketeering enterprise do not possess and cannot obtain proof that the people they sue owe the alleged debts. Consequently, they sewer serve and criminally get default judgments, like what was done in this matter. Failure to provide Full Disclosure is Fraud, predicated upon violation of Due Process of Law. Fraud is gaining at the loss of another using trickery or deception. Attorney Keith Rothman has engaged in and specializes in criminally expert fraud administration in the New York State Courts, to the detriment and expense of innocent New Yorkers. 7. In another recent federal court case, Rubin & Rothman, LLC, a consumer-debtor accused the law firm of violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. See Clayson v. Rubin & Rothman, LLC, 2010 WL 547476 (W.D.N.Y. 2010). The abusive and deceptive tactics alleged against Rubin & Rothman included contacting third persons and discussing the consumer’s debts as well as financial condition, without knowledge or permission of the debtor consumer. Despite the fact that the plaintiff consumer was on full disability, Rubin & Rothman threatened to “drain all of [her] accounts” if she did not pay the debt and falsely and misleading told plaintiff that any money in her accounts, including disability payments was subject to attachment. Based upon these alleged facts, the Court denied Rubin & Rothman’s motion for summary judgment in its favor. 8. This Affidavit of Truth Demanding Dismissal of this Rubin & Rothman LLC, unregulated and Continued fraud, specifically their fraud based judgment is submitted under penalty of perjury and is submitted pursuant to the below laws and the laws noted in affiant’s attached Memorandum of Law: A. CPLR RULE 5015 SECTION A3 – RELIEF FROM JUDGMENT OR ORDER BASED ON

LAW § 172 B: NY CODE - SECTION 172: SANCTIONS

9. Miriam Snyder Demandant and Affiant reference the plaintiffs as alleged plaintiffs because there is no evidence that they Represent Ford Motor Credit Company. The alleged plaintiffs have failed to produce a CONTRACT with the affiant as required under law. They have failed to prove that they are a party of interest in the alleged agreement that the Consumer had agreed. Without a contract, or proof that they are a party to an agreement with the Consumer, then they are not a holder in due course. Furthermore, the racketeers have failed to produce "every document bearing affiant’s signature that in any way supports the alleged plaintiff's claim." 10. The racketeers have failed to produce the prima facie - documents they allege affiant has made purchases amounting to the figures extorted. The alleged plaintiffs have defrauded the courts and Affiant with respect to plaintiff impersonations as Ford Motor Credit Company. 11. In the instant alleged case #21456-04, The Rubin & Rothman, LLC racketeers have criminally Impersonated Ford Motor Credit Company, while disguising as debt collector and attorney. They have committed this false personation crime in a most criminally expert, patterned, practiced, 110


deceptive, fraud based, misrepresentation, misconduct, and fraud on the court manner. Please see Exhibits 1B,C,D, and 7.

12. Examples of the above noted Keith Rothman and his co-conspirators holder in due course fraud racquet, money extortion, and impersonation crimes include: A. In exhibit 7, the undated, signed by Keith Rothman violative and criminal money

extortion letter, Keith Rothman is disguised as the debt collector. B. In Exhibit 1D, the alleged Plaintiff, un-ratified complaint, Keith Rothman is disguised as

the attorney. C. In exhibit 1C, the Keith Rothman unsigned summons, Keith Rothman is impersonating as

Ford Motor Credit, the alleged Plaintiff. 13. The above noted Attorney Keith Rothman acts are criminal pursuant to: 190.23 False personation. 190.25 Criminal impersonation in the second degree. 190.26 Criminal impersonation in the first degree. 14. In this Keith Rothman extortion and fraud case, additional fraud was practiced in obtaining complaint warranting vacation of “complaint� 21456-04: KEITH ROTHMAN LAW LICENSE # 1419498, MARK BRAVERMAN ALLEGED LAW LICENSE # 2799260, ALEX SHAFRAN SERVER LICENSE # 0862826, EDGAR MORA, ALLEGED SERVER LICENSE # 108706 and GINA TORNAMAN, ACCOUNT REPRESENTATIVE, each one of these conspirators individually and collectively committed felony fraud by advancing writings which Keith Rothman law license # 1419498 knew were false with the intent that Miriam Snyder and the court would rely on to deprive Miriam Snyder of money, property and rights. KEITH ROTHMAN LAW LICENSE # 1419498 knew that he lacked standing to demand any sum of Miriam Snyder under any lawful theory. 15. Consequently, since Keith Rothman Law License # 1419498 and his above noted co-conspirators, were unable to present admissible evidence of the entire chain of assignment of the alleged underlying debt in this matter, they filed multitudes of false instruments in the courts to deprive Miriam Snyder of money, property, due process, and other rights. 16. The complaint is insufficient/fraudulent on its face. The complaint is not ratified by the signature of a judge. This suggests that each and every one of the aforementioned alleged plaintiffs are involved in the holder in due course fraud racket. See NYPL 190.65 Scheme to defraud in the first 111


degree; 190.40 Criminal usury in the second degree; 190.55 Making a false statement of credit terms; 190.50 Unlawful collection; 185.15 Fraudulent disposition of (intangible) property subject to a conditional sale contract; 185.05 Fraud involving a security interest; 175.35 Offering a false instrument for filing in the second degree; 175.45 Issuing a false financial statement; 175.10: Falsifying business records in the first degree. 17. This fraud racket is rooted off of “Attorney Buying Evidence of Debt-Misleading Court”. Please see: Title 21. Crimes and Punishments Chapter 19 Section 554, Oklahoma Statutes Citationized. 18. Examples of rackets of the enterprise: (1) The holder in due course fraud racket. In the holder in due course fraud racket, racketeers affect interstate commerce by buying evidence of debt, suing for collection, usually in the name of the original maker of the debt, when the racketeers know that the party sued is not responsible and does not owe the debt. They make false statements, and submit false documents to the court to defraud people of money and property. For example of prohibition of the holder in due course racket, review Oklahoma public laws: O.S. Title 21, Chapter 19, § 554, “Attorney Buying Evidence of Debt-Misleading Court. Every attorney who either directly or indirectly buys or is interested in buying any evidence of debt or thing in action with intent to bring suit thereon is guilty of a misdemeanor. Any attorney who in any proceeding before any court of a justice of the peace or police judge or other inferior court in which he appears as attorney, willfully misstates any proposition or seeks to mislead the court in any matter of law is guilty of a misdemeanor and on any trial therefore the state shall only be held to prove to the court that the cause was pending, that the defendant appeared as an attorney in the action, and showing what the legal statement was, wherein it is not the law. If the defense be that the act was not willful the burden shall be on the defendant to prove that he did not know that there was error in his statement of law.” Any person guilty of falsely preparing any book, paper, [({ record, })], instrument in writing, or other matter or thing, with intent to produce it, or allow it to be produced as genuine upon any [({ trial, proceeding or inquiry whatever, })] authorized by law, SHALL BE GUILTY OF A FELONY. See Oklahoma Statutes Title 21. Crimes and Punishments, Chapter 13, Section 453. 19. In this matter, additional fraud was practiced by Attorney Keith Rothman’s filing of a noncertified summons and complaint. Keith Rothman’s signature is missing on the complaint and the summons. His signature is not missing on his undated, false, deceptive, misleading, unfair, and harassing debt collection, extortion, and FDCPA violation letter. Please see exhibit 7. 112


20. Keith Rothman, the attorney and Plaintiff impersonator, in this matter, did not and could not have properly certified the Ford Motor Credit complaint filed in the instant action because 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1-a requires that "by signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person's knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in subsection 130-1.1(c)." 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1(c) defines conduct as frivolous if: (1) it is completely without merit in law and cannot be by a reasonable argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law ... or, (3) it asserts material factual statements that are false." Please see exhibit 1D. 21. Keith Rothman could not sign or certify the complaint against Miriam Snyder because the complaint, summons, and the affidavits, were all based on malicious fraudulent asserts and allegations, created out of thin air and designed to and did damage Miriam Snyder. Keith Rothman could not certify the complaint or summons because under 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1-a a proper certification of a complaint can only be made after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances establishes that the claim asserted in the complaint has merit in law and asserts truthful factual allegations. 22. Fraud was practiced and filed in the courts in Keith Rothman’s falsified affidavit of sewer service. Affiant was not served like the many other Rubin & Rothman, LLC sewer service and fraud based default victims. Please see: CPLR 3215 DISMISSALS CALENDAR http://www.nycourts.gov/courts/10jd/suffolk/dist/pdf/4dismiss.pdf. This is a list of the many victims Rubin & Rothman LLC, has defrauded via sewer service and this fraud effectuated premeditated, meaning before the date dismissals. 23. Above all, in this matter, Keith Rothman’s robo-signer process server failed to engage in a diligent search and inquiry of affiant prior to resorting to substitute service. They did such because they did not want the affiant to answer and replicate her FDCPA validation request. They knew this matter was based on fraud and misrepresentation as exemplified in their fraudulent documents. They were trying to extort money from affiant as well as thousands of New Yorkers via their sewer service scam that criminally and effectively effectuates fraud based DEFAULT judgments.

113


24. Fraud was practiced and filed in the courts in Keith Rothman’s falsified Affidavit of Merit which was deceptively used to appear as fulfilling the requirements of CPLR § 3215 in obtaining the default judgment. CPLR § 3215 requires submission of an affidavit of merit setting forth the factual proof constituting the claim made by the party in support of such party's application for a default judgment. 25. The Keith Rothman’s affidavit of Merit criminally filed in the court with his default judgment application was deceptively written to appear as an affidavit satisfying the requirements under CPLR § 3215. However, the affidavit is by a non-titled employee of Rubin $ Rothman’s LLC, servicing agent and as such is not an affidavit made by the party as required under CPLR § 3215. See HSBC Bank v. Betts, 67 AD3d 735 (2nd Dept. 2009). 26. CPLR § 3215 sets out the requirements for affidavits, it requires that the affidavit be made on personal knowledge. Hearsay, of course is not personal knowledge. The affidavit of Merit attached to Rubin & Rothman’s, LLC extortion and default application does not constitute a basis which the personal knowledge of the facts contained herein can be determined. Please see Rothman’s patterns and practice of filing frivolous Affidavits of Merit in exhibit 1E,10,11 and 13. 27. Additionally, the allegations asserted in the affidavit are not made by an individual with firsthand knowledge of the facts. Although the affidavit is carefully drafted to appear as if the affirmant has actual knowledge of the underlying facts, in fact, the allegations are based upon hearsay. 28. Exhibit 1E is the defendant’s default judgment affidavit of merit. This affidavit actually asserts that it relies on Keith Rothman’s records to verify it merits. Clearly, the affirmant had no firsthand knowledge of the facts constituting the claim as required under CPLR § 3215. Above all this non-qualifying 3215 hearsay affidavit of fraud was notarized in the state of Arizona when Ford Motor Credit, Affiant, and this case is NOT located in Arizona. Again, the Keith Rothman racketeers obstructed and misrepresented the statutory requirements embedded in CPLR § 3215. 29. It is impossible to have the firsthand knowledge necessary for a statutorily proper affidavit of merit as required by CPLR § 3215 such party must have obtained the entire chain of assignment(s) and the underlying documentary proof as well as have done such in the statutorily proper state where the suit is filed. Rothman’s Affidavit of Merit is notarized in Arizona and not in NYS. 114


30. Recent court decisions confirm that Rubin & Rothman, LLC do not possess, and cannot obtain, the evidence required to make out a prima facie case. See, e.g., Clayson v. Rubin & Rothman, LLC, 2010 WL 547476 (W.D.N.Y. 2010), Bolanos v. Arrow Financial Services, LLC and Rubin & Rothman, LLC, and 10-cv-07243 (S.D.N.Y. 2010), 2012 NY Slip Op 50008 Midland Funding LLC d/b/a in New York as Midland Funding of Delaware LLC, Plaintiff, v. Dianne Wallace, Defendant.1788-08, City Court of Mt. Vernon, Decided on January 5, 2012, Rubin & Rothman, LLC. 31. Rubin & Rothman, LLC should have known that under New York law, a full chain of assignment in addition to documentary proof of the contract and debt is required in order to prove a prima facie case in a consumer debt action where the plaintiff is an assignee of the original creditor. See, Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); Palisades Collection, LLC v. Gonzalez, 10 Misc 3d 1058A (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); DNS Equity Group, Inc. Lavalle, 26 Misc 3d 1228A (Dist. Ct. Nassau Cty. 2010). 32. Rubin & Rothman have a high rate of defaults in their debt collection lawsuits, because they have designed a criminal scheme to defraud the courts and consumers by denying consumers due process via sewer service, which stops victims from challenging their nonexistent proof. This has happened in this matter and in several hundred other matters. Please see: CPLR 3215 DISMISSALS CALENDAR http://www.nycourts.gov/courts/10jd/suffolk/dist/pdf/4dismiss.pdf 33. In this matter a default judgment was rendered against affiant because she was not served. The Rothman enterprise alleged to have served their frivolous law suit and not signed summons and complaint via “sewer service”. The term "sewer service" is widely used to describe the practice of failing to serve a summons and complaint and then filing a fraudulent affidavit of service. 34. Sewer service deprived plaintiff of due process because she did not get notice of the lawsuit and was denied her day in court. A default judgment was then entered on the basis of this Attorney Keith Rothman patterned and practiced sewer service scheme to defraud. 35. Additional fraud is noted in Keith Rothman’s fraudulent judgment that was obtained via fraudulent means and is defective and fraudulent via the missing wet ink signature of the clerk and the judgment has no seal or authentication as required under law. Please see exhibit 1A-B and read the signature section that references a signature and a seal that is not there. 36. There is no logical reason for this magnitude of fraud in the courts including a non-authenticated judgment, a judgment with no seal, no judge’ s signature, no court clerk’s signature and a court 115


robo- signer disguised as court clerk and court notary. What is even more scandalous is that the court robo- signer ROBERT SHIMONSKI fraudulently stamped the judgment and this fraudulent and defective judgment had and continues to criminally have out of thin air, criminal, magical, satanical court ruling and extortion powers that criminally stole, garnished and froze monies due affiant. 37. Reasonably and logically, the rubber stamp mark of Robert Shimonski either appears on the attached putative judgment without knowledge of Robert Shimonski or Robert Shimonski chose to stamp the judgment rather than sign it to be able to later deny knowledge of the fraud clearly articulated at NY PL 175.25 Tampering with public records in the first degree; 175.35 Offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree; 175.40 Issuing a false certificate. These false instruments caused extreme commercial harm and duress by garnishing wages, freezing two of affiant’s bank accounts unjustifiably and unnecessarily for one year. 38. The unsigned and unsealed judgment in this instant case is not a lawful judgment. It is also true that an unsigned order is not an order. See SECOND NAT. BANK OF PAINTSVILLE v. BLAIR, 186 S.W.2d 796. Yet this fraudulent document acting as an order has inflicted immeasurable legal, and commercial abuse and emotional distress damages. 39. Attorney Keith Rothman’s affidavit of service appeared facially valid, but was based on fraud. Plaintiff lived and lives in the Bronx and the affidavit alleged serving a Long Island address. Affiant Miriam Snyder challenged the improper service and Rubin Rothman’s lack of standing in the court. Her lawful challenge was disregarded and a reason for such is needed on behalf of consumer protections. This should not have happened. 40. Affiant Miriam Snyder was harmed when Attorney Keith Rothman used the default judgment to freeze her bank account, garnish her wages, and criminally pressured her into making settlement agreements on this alleged debt of nonexistent merit for which no documentation is available. Affiant has also been harmed by this judgment appearing on her credit reports. 41. The robo-signing of affidavits and the judgment in his matter served to cover up the fact that Keith Rothman and his conspirators cannot demonstrate the facts required to conduct a lawful debt collection law suit. The court robo-signer clerk titled Robert Shimonski, did indeed sign off on the attached default judgment without review, and committed fraud by claiming knowledge of a financial matter of which he/it had no personal knowledge. 42. Additional fraud is noted in Attorney Keith Rothman suing in the name of a Fictitious Plaintiff. Ford Motor Credit Company was used as Attorney Keith Rothman’s Fictitious Plaintiff. Black’s 116


Law Dictionary 4th Edition (Page 752) defines a fictitious plaintiff as: A person appearing in the writ or record as the plaintiff in a suit, but who in reality does not exist, or who is ignorant of the suit and of the use of his name in it. It is a contempt of court to sue in the name of a fictitious party. See 4 Bl. Comm. 134. 43. Please note that Attorney Keith Rothman’s Fraudulent Debt Collection Practices also included criminally suing affiant Miriam Snyder in a remote jurisdiction that is not where the alleged consumer resides, or the one in which the contract was made. This is a proud Attorney Keith Rothman violation of FDCPA § 1692 i(a)(2). 44. Attorney Keith Rothman also criminally and fraudulently charged for items not due under the alleged contract. Please see exhibit ____1H___. This is another proud Attorney Keith Rothman violation of FDCPA § 1692 i(a)(2). 45. Exhibit 1H, 2 will show Attorney Keith Rothman’s Unlawful post-judgment charges. It is unlawful to add certain post-judgment costs. As such, this is another proud Attorney Keith Rothman violation of FDCPA § 1692 d and § 1692 e(10). He added $4,000.00, in addition to the extorted judgment and criminal garnishment. 46. Please note that Attorney Keith Rothman’s Fraudulent Debt Collection Practices also included speaking with affiant Miriam Snyder’s employer in order to get "payroll" information and advised him that legal process would be served there. In other words, Attorney Keith Rothman told affiant Miriam Snyder’s employer that his employee was a no-good deadbeat. Thus Attorney Keith Rothman and his conspirators disclosed this false and demeaning private information to a third party, a big "no-no" under the FDCPA 15 USC §1692c(b) . 47. In addition to Attorney Keith Rothman and his conspirators criminally contacting affiant’s employer regarding this frivolous and vexatious lawsuit, Affiant Miriam Snyder was criminally terminated from a professorship position, within 30 days of Attorney Keith Rothman’s fraudulent and malicious garnishment. She was criminally terminated without cause or reason and while her payroll checks were being criminally garnished and ultimately criminally terminated. She was ousted from a college professor position because of these Attorney Keith Rothman unregulated, criminal, debt collection crimes. Please see exhibits 3-7. 48. This court is noticed that in the record made in this instant case and in the above noted other Attorney Keith Rothman extortion cases, Keith Rothman, Head of Rubin & Rothman LLC, their

117


documents and acts effectively confess primary business as the holder-in-due-course fraud racket. Please see exhibits _10-14____, these court decisions and cases exemplify such. 49. The Attorney Keith Rothman/Ford Motor Credit impersonation crimes, the Rubin & Rothman LLC, deceptive and racketeering documents, coupled with lack of standing, epitomizes vexatious litigation, abuse of process and malicious prosecution. Each act individually and collectively demands for the fraud judgment dismissal immediately, sanctions, a needed injunction stopping the impersonation, extortion, fraud, misrepresentation, trickery, magical, satanic, and racketeering crimes and requires restitution. 50. On behalf of public safety, immediate investigation and penalty enforcement is needed regarding ending Robo-signing and stopping premeditated multitudes of court Robo-signing, under the disguise of clerks, judges and notaries, as noted in this matter. The below link will show the root of Robo-signing fraud administration as it is being transferred from lawyers to the courts. Please see: http://www.nycourts.gov/press/pr2010_12.shtml. The ramifications of the continued use of court robo-signers is deadly and puts the sheriff, police, officers and innocent and targeted New Yorkers lives in jeopardy unwarrantedly and while these atrocities are preventable by ending robo-signing via severe commercial and criminal enforcement. 51. Robo-signing is a satanic manifestation implemented as a form of magic embedded with a ruthless unseen ruling force as exemplified in this matter. The Robo-signed judgment in this matter has had ruthless, uncontrollable, fraudulent, unseen, damaging spiritual power that has harmed immensely and could have left someone dead. 52. Robo-signing is an unGodly control/ruling phenomenon/diety developed from the satanic creation called plausible deniability. Satanists have infested and infiltrated the Bar Association, Mortgage Industry and banking with their robo-signing phenomenon. Since unregulated, this satanic manifestation is infesting and ruling in the courts. This should not be happening. No one should have a robo-signed judgment, particularly when there are civil and criminal penalties against such. 53. Please note the purpose of robo-signing, is just like the satanic purpose and creation of plausible deniability. Both of these man-made words, acts, manifestations, and phenomena specialize in advancing the works of the kingdom of darkness. Specifically, robo-signing is a manifestation of plausible deniability and was created to advance criminality embedded in master deceptions, secrecy, hiding blame, concealing evidence, enjoining third parties in deadly schemes, avoiding responsibility, and hiding/silencing wrongdoing or abuse. 118


Plausible deniability is defined as:

the denial of blame in (formal or informal) chains of command, where senior figures assign responsibility to the lower ranks, and records of instructions given do not exist or are inaccessible, meaning independent confirmation of responsibility for the action is nearly impossible.

 In the case that illegal or otherwise disreputable and unpopular activities become public, highranking officials may deny any awareness of such act or any connection to the agents used to carry out such acts.  forethought, such as intentionally setting up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility for one's (future) actions or knowledge 

Refers to the ability of a "powerful player" or intelligence agency to avoid "blowback" by secretly arranging for an action to be taken on their behalf by a third party ostensibly unconnected with the major player.

 Plausible deniability enables candidates to stay "clean" and denounce third-party advertisements that use unethical approaches or potentially libellous innuendo.  Plausible deniability" can also apply to any act that leaves little or no evidence of wrongdoing or abuse. Examples of this are the use of electric shock, waterboarding or pain-compliance holds as a means of torture or punishment, leaving few or no tangible signs that the abuse ever took place.  Plausible deniability is also a legal concept. It refers to lack of evidence proving an allegation. Standards of proof vary in civil and criminal cases. In civil cases, the standard of proof is "preponderance of the evidence" whereas in a criminal matter, the standard is "beyond a reasonable doubt." If your opponent lacks incontrovertible proof (evidence) of their allegation, you can "plausibly deny" the allegation even though it may be true.

54. An example of plausible deniability is exemplified in the below linked creation. By creating a new law appearing to make attorneys strengthen their verification of debt processes, you plant judicial, clerk, and notary robo- signers all across the courts to do more fraud and damage than attorneys did. This is called forethought plausible deniability where you use a new disguised law to intentionally set up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility or knowledge of premeditated fraud via judicial, court clerk and notary robo-signing in the courts. Please see: http://www.nycourts.gov/press/pr2010_12.shtml. 55. Court ratification of documents, verification of court official signatures and verification of authenticating original seals is needed to preserve the Integrity of the courts. Court signature and authentication verification is also needed to stop the use of court clerk and notary robo-signed fraudulent judgments to enjoin third party officers in a forethought deadly scheme to defraud or conspiracy to murder.

CONCLUSION 56. Attorney Keith Rothman and his council should be ORDERED TO PAY AFFIANT Miriam Snyder MAXIMUM AMOUNT ENTITLED in this court and should be sanctioned for deliberately and consistently continuing to file frivolous complaints without merit, and wasting the public’s resources and the Courts valuable time, while neglecting to follow and continually violating the Civil Procedure Rules and the Rules of Judicial Administration. 57. It is beyond the comprehension of a lay person how a Court would allow such conduct without properly reprimanding Keith Rothman and every participant in this scheme to defraud for such continued behavior would burden the tax payer with the misuse of public resources. 58.

The term most often refers to the denial of blame in (formal or informal) chains of command, where senior figures assign responsibility 128


to the lower ranks, and records of instructions given do not exist or are inaccessible, meaning independent confirmation of responsibility for the action is nearly impossible. In the case that illegal or otherwise disreputable and unpopular activities become public, high-ranking officials may deny any awareness of such act or any connection to the agents used to carry out such acts. It typically implies forethought, such as intentionally setting up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility for one's (future) actions or knowledge. In politics and espionage, deniability refers to the ability of a "powerful player" or intelligence agency to avoid "blowback" by secretly arranging for an action to be taken on their behalf by a third party ostensibly unconnected with the major player. In political campaigns, plausible deniability enables candidates to stay "clean" and denounce third-party advertisements that use unethical approaches or potentially libellous innuendo. More generally, "plausible deniability" can also apply to any act that leaves little or no evidence of wrongdoing or abuse. Examples of this are the use of electric shock, waterboarding or pain-compliance holds as a means of torture or punishment, leaving few or no tangible signs that the abuse ever took place.

ROBO-SIGNERS assume paperwork to be correct and sign it automatically, like robots. In the third and fourth quarters of 2010, a robo-signing scandal emerged in the United States involving GMAC Mortgage and a number of major U.S banks. Banks had to halt thousands of foreclosures in numerous states when it became known that the paperwork was illegitimate because the signers had not actually reviewed it. While some robo-signers were middle managers, others were temporary workers with virtually no understanding of the work they were doing. Rather than actually reviewing the individual details of each case, robo-signers fraudulently certify that the financial institution has the correct and required legal documentation to foreclose on the property. Unfortunately, the signers have often used fraudulent and fictitious names and obtained invalid notarizations on documents recorded throughout the United States. The “robo-signing� scandal revolved around massive abuses of notarization, including forged signatures, lack of screening for awareness and misuse of Notary seals by non-Notaries, among other violations READ MORE: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002417170 129

Clayson v. Rubin & Rothman, LLC, 2010 WL 547476 (W.D.N.Y. 2010) http://www.newyorkconsumerprotection.com/consumer-law-help/debt-collection/rubin-rothman-llc Rubin & Rothman, LLC Rubin & Rothman, LLC is a high volume debt collection law firm located at 1787 Veterans Hwy, Suite 32, Islandia, New York 11749. Rubin & Rothman, LLC has been sued repeatedly by consumers for its unfair and deceptive debt collection practices. For example: 

A 2003 New York court lambasted Rubin & Rothman’s conduct when the firm attempted to reserve a defendant while the defendant appeared for a traverse hearing to challenge the firm’s earlier defective service. The court said that Rubin & Rothman’s conduct “essentially allow[ed] the plaintiff to use a defective default judgment as a weapon with which to compel the defendant to submit to service of process.” Ford Motor Credit Co. v. George Bobo, 1 Misc.3d 901(A) (N.Y. Dist. Ct. 2003). The court expressed its disapproval of Rubin & Rothman’s questionable conduct when it remarked, “[t]he Court takes a very dim view of a plaintiff who serves process in the courthouse on a defendant who has appeared for a traverse hearing.” A recent investigative report by MFY Legal Services, Inc. found that in 2007, Rubin & Rothman filed 31,661 cases in New York City alone. See Consumer Rights Project, “Justice Disserved,” June 2008. The defendant appeared in court in only 9.29 percent of those cases. Thus, the vast majority of those cases resulted in default judgments against the consumer. In a recent federal court case, Rubin & Rothman, LLC, a consumer-debtor accused the law firm of violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. See Clayson v. Rubin & Rothman, LLC, 2010 WL 547476 (W.D.N.Y. 2010). The abusive and deceptive tactics alleged against Rubin & Rothman included contacting third persons and discussing the consumer’s debts as well as financial condition, without knowledge or permission of the debtor consumer. Despite the fact that the plaintiff consumer was on full disability, Rubin & Rothman threatened to “drain all of [her] accounts” if she did not pay the debt and falsely and misleading told plaintiff that any money in her accounts, including disability payments was subject to attachment. Based upon these alleged facts, the Court denied Rubin & Rothman’s motion for summary judgment in its favor. Schlanger & Schlanger, LLP recently filed a lawsuit against Rubin & Rothman, LLC and Arrow Financial Services in federal court (Southern District of New York), alleging that Rubin & Rothman and Arrow Financial Serviceswrongfully sued a consumer in state court on a medical debt she did not owe, in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and state consumer protection laws. Bolanos v. Arrow Financial Services, LLC and Rubin & Rothman, LLC, 10-cv-07243 (S.D.N.Y. 2010).

EXHIBIT 13 2012 NY Slip Op 50974 LVNV Funding LLC, Plaintiff, v. Annetta Guest, Defendant. 2091-10 City Court of Mount Vernon Decided on May 29, 2012 http://www.plol.org/Pages/Secure/Document.aspx?d=wmmFBB%2fuxTRX86gr5ucwtw%3d%3d&l=Cases&rp=4

Rubin & Rothman, LLC Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP Counsel for Midland Funding LLC & Rubin & Rothman, LLC Annetta Guest Defendant Pro Se The Lawyers' Fund For Client Protection Mark A. Gross, J.

This Court ordered a hearing to determine whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit and whether plaintiff's counsel should be held in contempt of the Court for failing to provide court ordered documents. Plaintiff commenced the instant action on June 8, 2010. Defendant filed her answer on July 23, 2010. The matter was scheduled for a Pre-Trial Conference to be held on September 28, 2010. On September 28, 2010 both sides appeared and the plaintiff was ordered to serve on defendant and file with the Court its proof of the entire chain of assignments of the alleged debt, the credit card agreement and other documentary proof of plaintiff's prima facie case by October 29, 2010. The Pre-Trial Conference was adjourned to November 16, 2010. On November 16, 2010 both sides again appeared, however, plaintiff still had not provided the ordered documents to defendant nor filed them with the Court. Plaintiff's counsel requested an adjournment until January 18, 2011 so that they could obtain the documentary proof the Court had ordered it to provide by October 29, 2010. The Court informed plaintiff's counsel on the record that it would not tolerate any additional delay in plaintiff's counsel producing the required documentary proof. On January 18, 2011 plaintiff's counsel appeared and still did not have the documentary proof and requested to discontinue the case. The Court refused to accept plaintiff's request to discontinue the action, dismissed the case with prejudice and adjourned the case to February 24, 2011 for a hearing to determine whether plaintiff's attorneys should be held in contempt of the Court for failing to provide the requisite documents as directed and whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1 for their frivolous conduct in commencing a lawsuit without having the requisite proof needed for a prima facie case. The hearing was held on February 24, 2011. With respect to the issue of whether sanctions should be imposed on plaintiff and its attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit, plaintiff's counsel contended that plaintiff had a valid case against Ms. Annetta Guest, the defendant herein. In support of their contention that plaintiff had commenced a valid action against Ms. Guest, plaintiff's counsel produced a copy of a statement by Leonard Turnbull, a Senior Sales Specialist at GE Money Bank, which is entitled an Affidavit of Sale and which is dated February 11, 2011 and allegedly sworn to before a notary public in the State of Georgia. In his statement, Mr. Turnbull swears that GE Money Bank sold Ms. Guest's account, account number 6018595219157951, to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC. Mr. Turnbull further swears that the correct amount owed by Ms. Guest as of the February 14, 2009 date of sale was $1,781.54. Plaintiff's counsel also presented an undated Bill of Sale which references a Forward Flow Receivables Purchase Agreement dated December 19, 2007 between GE Money Bank and SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC. The Bill of Sale indicates that GE Money Bank sold and assigned certain receivables as set forth in certain files delivered by GE Money Bank to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC on February 14, 2009. Also presented to the Court was an undated document entitled Declaration of Account Transfer which indicates that on February 27, 2009 SHERMAN ORIGINATOR III, LLC sold and assigned certain receivables identified on a receivable file dated February 17, 2009 to SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC. The document further states that SHERMAN ORIGINATOR, LLC subsequently sold the same assets to LVNV Funding, LLC.

152


Attached to the Declaration of Account Transfer as Exhibit A, is an untitled document which indicates that the receivable files dated February 27, 2009 were designated as part of transfer group number 114723 and portfolio number 12639. A copy of a statement from Ms. Nikki Foster, an untitled, allegedly authorized representative of Sherman Originator LLC, dated February 10, 2011, was also produced by plaintiff's counsel and allegedly sworn to before a notary public in the State of South Carolina. Ms. Foster swears in her statement that account number 6018595219157951 is owned by LVNV Funding, LLC and that the account was acquired by LVNV Funding, LLC from its affiliate Sherman Originator, LLC. Plaintiff's counsel also provided a copy of the computer screen printout that contains the electronically stored information regarding defendant's alleged credit card account which was reviewed and testified to by Jean Paul Torres, a witness for plaintiff, at the hearing. Mr. Torres is an employee of Resurgent Capital Services, LP, the servicing agent for Sherman Originator, LLC, Sherman Originator III, LLC and LVNV Funding, LLC. Also produced at the hearing was a copy of the Resurgent Placement Print that Resurgent Capital Services, LP allegedly sent to plaintiff's counsel and which purports to contain data concerning defendant's alleged credit card account, which plaintiff's counsel allegedly used as their basis for commencing the instant action. Ms. Valerie Watts, an associate attorney of plaintiff's counsel, testified regarding the Placement Print at the hearing. Mr. Adam Acuff, an associate attorney employed by plaintiff's counsel who signed the complaint in the instant action, also testified at the hearing. It is plaintiff's counsel's contention that they did not file a frivolous lawsuit against the defendant. Counsel contends that defendant has admitted that she filled out a credit card application and that based upon the testimony of Mr. Torres, the exhibits introduced at the hearing and the purchase agreement submitted with counsel's post-hearing memorandum, it is evident that LVNV Funding, LLC owned defendant's account. Counsel further contends that based upon the testimony of Ms. Watts and Mr. Acuff and the documents produced at the hearing, it is clear that plaintiff's counsel had good reason to believe, based upon reasonable inquiry, that the claims against defendant were meritorious. Specifically, plaintiff's counsel asserts that it reviewed the Resurgent Placement Print and conducted its own investigation to determine that the account information provided by Resurgent was accurate. It is plaintiff's counsel's position that they have no legal obligation to independently verify the information regarding defendant's account that they received. Further, counsel contends that there is no rule that requires debt collectors or their attorneys to submit affidavits evidencing the chain of title regarding ownership before commencing an action. Lastly, counsel asserts that neither the Fair Debt Collection Act nor 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a requires that parties and/or attorneys have all the evidence necessary to prove the claim when filing the complaint. First, the Court notes that defendant's credit card account at issue herein originated with Monogram Credit Card Bank of Georgia. Plaintiff's counsel entirely failed to establish the relationship between the original creditor Monogram Credit Card Bank of Georgia and GE Money Bank. Plaintiff's counsel was only able to posit at the hearing that they are related entities and produced a copy of a Certificate of Merger regarding the merger of GE Capital Consumer Card Co. and Monogram Credit Card Bank of Georgia with its post-hearing memorandum. However, there has been no explanation or documentation offered regarding either the assignment of defendant's account by Monogram Credit Card Bank of Georgia to GE Capital Consumer Card Co. or the relationship between GE Capital Consumer Card Co. and GE Money Bank. Accordingly, the sworn statement of Mr. Turnbull that GE Money Bank owned the debt and subsequently sold it to Sherman Originator, LLC is entirely unsubstantiated hearsay and of no probative value. The Court also notes that the documents presented by plaintiff's counsel are contradictory regarding the chain of assignment of the alleged debt. Mr. Turnbull's sworn statement indicates that the alleged debt was sold by GE Money Bank to Sherman Originator, LLC yet the Bill of Sale produced indicates that the batch of accounts set forth in the Notification files of February 14, 2009, in which defendant's account was allegedly included, were sold and assigned to Sherman Originator III, LLC and not Sherman Originator, LLC.1 The Court finds Mr. Torres' testimony to be inconsequential to plaintiff's contention that it had a prima facie case against the defendant. Mr. Torres, who is an employee of Resurgent Capitol Services, LP, the servicing agent for plaintiff, acknowledged that he had no personal knowledge of the assignment of the alleged debt between any of the parties. Rather, Mr. Torres' testimony relied solely upon the documents that were provided after the assignment took place. Mr. Torres' testimony regarding the electronically transferred documents highlights the fact that there is no evidentiary proof that defendant's account was actually assigned by or to any party.

153


According to Mr. Torres' testimony, his understanding of the assignments is that numerous accounts are transferred pursuant to a Bill of Sale. After a Bill of Sale is executed, the account information is transferred electronically. Exhibit A references transfer and portfolio numbers for the accounts that were allegedly transferred as part of the agreement. Apparently, portfolio number 12639 refers to a specific batch of accounts. The computer screen printout is a physical representation of the information that was transferred. However, there is absolutely nothing in the documentation to indicate that Ms. Guest's account was among the batch of accounts transferred pursuant to the agreements. Nothing in Mr. Torres' testimony establishes the chain of assignment of defendant's alleged debt. The Court notes that the Turnbull and Foster affidavits were both created on February 11, 2011, long after the litigation was commenced, specifically to bolster plaintiff's counsel's position at this sanctions and contempt hearing. Neither of such affidavits would be admissible in evidence as only photocopies were ever submitted and neither was accompanied by a certificate of conformity verifying the authenticity of the notaries who have acknowledged execution of such affidavits. Further, Mr. Turnbull's and Ms. Foster's "affidavits" that defendant's account was assigned from GE Money Bank to Sherman Originator, LLC and from Sherman Originator, LLC to LVNV Funding, LLC, respectively, are hearsay and are not sufficient as a matter of law to prove that such assignments did, in fact, take place. See, Palisades Collection, LLC v. Gonzalez, 10 Misc 3d 1058A (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005). As such, there is no admissible proof specifically establishing that defendant's credit card account was one of the accounts assigned. Plaintiff's counsel was unable to present admissible or any other evidence of the entire chain of assignment of the underlying debt in this matter and therefore, plaintiff's counsel could not show a prima facie case against defendant.

The testimony of Ms. Watts and Mr. Acuff demonstrates that plaintiff's counsel relied solely on the Placement Print sent over from Resurgent Capital when commencing the instant action. Although plaintiff's counsel contends that they conducted their own investigation, the record is devoid of any testimony delineating exactly what other investigation was conducted.2 Rather, the testimony clearly establishes that it was only the placement sheet that was relied upon. The Court finds that under the circumstances presented here, plaintiff's counsel did not and could not have properly certified the complaint they filed in the instant action. 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a requires that "by signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person's knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in subsection 130-1.1(c)." 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1(c) defines conduct as frivolous if: (1) it is completely without merit in law and cannot be by a reasonable argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law ... or, (3) it asserts material factual statements that are false." Under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a a proper certification of a complaint can only be made after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances establishes that the claim asserted in the complaint has merit in law and asserts truthful factual allegations. The Court takes judicial notice of the fact that over the past five years alone plaintiff's counsel has commenced well over five hundred consumer debt actions on behalf of assignee plaintiffs in this Court alone. In many of those prior actions after the Court directed that plaintiff provide proof of a prima facie case, including proof of the chain of assignment(s) of the debt claimed, the actions were either dismissed by the Court for plaintiff's inability to produce said proof or discontinued by the plaintiff. Clearly, plaintiff's counsel knew what documentary proof was required for a meritorious lawsuit and knew that they did not have the required proof in the instant case when they filed suit. Further, even though plaintiff's counsel well knew that it was routinely filing actions on behalf of assignee creditors when it could not prove a prima facie case, such attorneys continued to do so. In order for any inquiry by counsel into the merits of the instant matter to be reasonable, particularly under these circumstances, counsel had an obligation to obtain the required documentation substantiating a prima facie case, including proof of the entire chain of assignment(s) of the alleged debt, or, at least, certification from an identified individual(s) with personal knowledge of all elements of the case, prior to filing the instant action. As such, since plaintiff's counsel failed to obtain either the requisite documentation or other first party certification substantiating the merits of plaintiff's alleged cause of action against the defendant, plaintiff's counsel could not certify the complaint as required under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a. Accordingly,the certification here is disingenuous, misleading and false.

154


In addition, counsel has a continuing duty to assess the legal and factual basis of a claim in order to avoid the imposition of sanctions under Part 130 of the Rules of the Chief Administrator of the Courts. See Worldwide Asset Purchasing, L.L.C. v. Akrofi, 884 N.Y.S.2d 631 (Ithaca City Ct. 2009). In the case at bar, counsel was presented with multiple opportunities to re-evaluate the claim especially in light of the fact that it was ordered by the Court to produce documentary proof of the alleged claim, including the entire chain of assignment of the debt, since the matter first appeared on the Court's calendar. Only after being threatened with possible financial sanctions and with being held in contempt of court did plaintiff's counsel obtain even some of the court ordered documents. Even now, the chain of assignment has not been produced. The Court finds that plaintiff's counsel's failure to produce the directed documentary proof is even more egregious given plaintiff's assertion at the very outset of hearing in February 2011 that the judgment herein was valid (despite plaintiff's prior request to discontinue the action) and further given the fact that the hearing was adjourned to allow counsel additional time to submit documentary proof of its case, production of which would otherwise be required in the ordinary course of pre-trial discovery. The apparent lack of a factual basis for the claim renders plaintiff's counsel's conduct in commencing this action without having proof of its merit frivolous within the meaning of 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1(c). Moreover, the Court takes issue with plaintiff's counsel's contentions that they have no obligation to independently verify the information regarding the defendant's account and that there is no "rule" requiring evidentiary proof of the chain of title prior to commencing a lawsuit. Clearly, plaintiff's counsel knows that under New York law, a full chain of assignment in addition to documentary proof of the contract and debt is required in order to prove a prima facie case in a consumer debt action where the plaintiff is an assignee of the original creditor. See, Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); Palisades Collection, LLC v. Gonzalez, 10 Misc 3d 1058A (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); DNS Equity Group, Inc. Lavalle, 26 Misc 3d 1228A (Dist. Ct. Nassau Cty. 2010). Without proof of the chain of assignment, or alternatively, verification from an individual with personal knowledge thereof (and of the other elements of the case) plaintiff's counsel knows it is and will be unable to show its standing to sue the defendant and a lack of standing renders a litigation a nullity, subject to dismissal without prejudice. Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005). The sentiment behind counsel's assertions renders meaningless the intent behind both the certification requirement under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a and the affidavit of merit requirement under CPLR ยง 3020. The Court further notes that consumer debt actions are not akin to negligence actions where extensive discovery may need to be had before a plaintiff can prove a prima facie case. Rather, consumer debt actions are primarily document driven and thus, in general, a plaintiff should be able to establish a prima facie case without any discovery whatsoever. In the instant matter, plaintiff's counsel commenced an action without having sufficient documentary proof to establish its prima facie case and did so, this Court believes, in bad faith, fully knowing what proof was required to prove a case, that it was not in possession of such proof, and, most significantly, that, in all likelihood, it could never obtain and produce the requisite proof. The conduct of plaintiff's counsel not only improperly denied defendant the due process of law but is egregious, dishonest and unprofessional and holds the courts and the entire legal profession up for public scorn and ridicule. Such conduct shall not be countenanced by the Court. With respect to the issue regarding whether plaintiff's counsel should be held in contempt for failing to provide court ordered documents, Ms. Watts testified about the attempts made by counsel to obtain the requisite documents as such efforts were recorded in the firm's computer notes, which were produced at the hearing as an exhibit. Ms. Watts testified that the firm's computer notes indicated that plaintiff's counsel's office requested certain limited documents from plaintiff's predecessors in interest, that being an affidavit of merit, billing statements and a bill of sale, shortly after the defendant's answer was received.3 Ms. Watts further testified that the only document received by plaintiff's counsel before the January 18, 2011 court date was an affidavit of assignment from Sherman Originator III, LLC to LVNV Funding, LLC. A review of Ms. Watts testimony clearly indicates that plaintiff's counsel had not even attempted to obtain the chain of assignment, original credit agreement, any modification of the credit agreement and an affidavit of merit from an individual employed by the original creditor who has personal knowledge regarding the creditor's record maintenance, all of which were required prior to the January 18, 2011 appearance date.

155


Although plaintiff's counsel contends that good faith efforts were undertaken to comply with the Court's directive that plaintiff serve on defendant and file with the Court its proof of the entire chain of assignments, the credit card agreement and plaintiff's prima facie case, the testimony adduced at the hearing coupled with the attorney computer notes entered into evidence make it clear that plaintiff's counsel made a minimal attempt at best to comply with the Court's order. Plaintiff's counsel's office put in one request in July 2010 for an affidavit of assignment, billing statements and a bill of sale. After the Court's order on September 28, 2010, plaintiff's counsel did not re-request any of these minimal documents, or the remainder of the documents as ordered by the Court, until after this matter was scheduled for the sanctions/contempt hearing. Rather than trying to proactively obtain these documents from their client, plaintiff's counsel waited for over five months for the client to send them the documents. Moreover, as noted above, the documents requested were only some of the documents ordered to be produced by the Court. Based upon all the foregoing, the Court finds that plaintiff's counsel Rubin & Rothman, LLC's failure to obtain the requisite documentary or other verifiable proof of the claim alleged, including the entire chain of assignment(s), prior to commencing the instant action against defendant constitutes frivolous conduct within the meaning of 22 NYCRR ยง 130.1-1. Based thereon the Court hereby imposes a monetary sanction against Rubin & Rothman, LLC in the sum of $10,000.00 which is to be paid by Rubin & Rothman, LLC to the Lawyer's Fund for Client Protection no later than July 25, 2012. Proof of compliance with this Decision and Order shall be filed with the Clerk of this Court by that same date. Regarding the issue of contempt, in its sound discretion, the Court declines in this instance to hold plaintiff's counsel Rubin & Rothman, LLC in contempt for failing to comply with the Court's directive. The Court trusts that plaintiff's counsel shall commence actions on behalf of assignee creditors in the future only after having received sufficient documentary or verifiable proof of the alleged claim and that they will adhere to future directives issued by any court before which they appear. Any future failure by plaintiff's counsel to comply with an order of this Court will not be tolerated. This constitutes the Decision and Order of the Court.

2012 NY Slip Op 50008 Midland Funding LLC d/b/a in New York as Midland Funding of Delaware LLC, Plaintiff, v. Dianne Wallace, Defendant. 1788-08 City Court of Mt. Vernon Decided on January 5, 2012

Rubin & Rothman, LLC

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP Counsel for Midland Funding LLC & Rubin & Rothman, LLC Dianne Wallace Defendant Pro Se The Lawyers' Fund For Client Protection Mark A. Gross, J. By Decision and Order dated September 6, 2010, this Court ordered a hearing to determine whether sanctions would be imposed upon plaintiff and/or plaintiff's attorneys for filing a frivolous debt collection lawsuit. On or about June 18, 2010 plaintiff moved ex parte to vacate a default judgment entered in favor of plaintiff and against defendant on June 17, 2008 and to discontinue the action. Although the plaintiff failed to provide any explanation regarding why the judgment was erroneously entered or the reason for the two year delay in seeking to vacate said judgment, the Court granted plaintiff's request to vacate the default judgment so that the defendant would no longer be prejudiced by having a default judgment on her record. Plaintiff and plaintiff's attorney were directed to appear before this Court on October 5, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. for a hearing to determine whether plaintiff's attorneys should be sanctioned under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1 for their frivolous conduct in entering a default judgment against the defendant in error and failing to vacate said erroneous judgment in a timely fashion. 157


Specifically, the plaintiff was directed to provide the Court with documentary proof of the alleged claim in the instant action establishing plaintiff's prima facie case, including the entire chain of assignment(s) of the debt alleged. The Court further directed that plaintiff and/or its attorneys provide the Court with a sufficient explanation as to why the default judgment was entered in error and why there was a two year delay in seeking vacatur of said erroneous default judgment. The hearing was adjourned several times and finally was held on January 10, 2011. Contrary to the assertions in plaintiff's motion, at the hearing, plaintiff's counsel informed the Court that it had mistakenly sought to vacate the default judgment entered due to an error by one of plaintiff's counsel's associates. Plaintiff had instructed counsel to vacate a judgment on another file counsel handled for plaintiff, however, counsel's office inadvertently transposed one file digit which led to the mistaken motion to vacate the judgment in the instant matter. Plaintiff's counsel contends that plaintiff had a valid judgment against Dianne Wallace, the defendant herein. In support of their contention that plaintiff's judgment against Ms. Wallace is valid, plaintiff's counsel produced an Assignment of Accounts from Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC to Midland Funding LLC dated February 10, 2006 which references two other agreements which were not produced. Plaintiff's counsel also submitted a sworn statement of Andrew Carlson, the Manager of Portfolio Sales for Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC. In his statement, Mr. Carlson swears that CompuCredit Corporation is the parent corporation of Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC and that CompuCredit Corporation acquired certain credit card accounts issued by Columbus Bank and Trust Company. Mr. Carlson further swears that after the accounts are charged off by CompuCredit the accounts are transferred and assigned to Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC. Mr. Carlson also affirms that Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC subsequently sold many of the accounts it had acquired to Midland Funding, LLC which sale was consummated by an Assignment of Accounts. It is further sworn that the accounts associated with the Columbus Bank and Trust Company accounts are identified as being in bin 410636 and that all information regarding those credit card accounts was transmitted electronically to the account purchasers. Ms. Danielle Wohlfehrt, a legal outsourcing manager for Midland Credit Managing, the servicing agent for plaintiff, testified at the hearing that based upon her experience in the 158


consumer debt industry, a credit card account in the name of Dianne Wallace was included in the account bin referenced in Mr. Carlson's affirmation.

The Court notes that only one actual assignment of plaintiff's account was submitted to the Court in support of plaintiff's counsel's contention that plaintiff's judgment against Ms. Wallace was valid, that being the assignment from Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC to Midland Funding LLC. Plaintiff's counsel was unable to present admissible evidence of the entire chain of assignment of the underlying debt in this matter. Noticeably missing was an assignment from the original creditor Columbus Bank and Trust Company, with whom defendant allegedly entered into a credit card agreement, to CompuCredit Corporation. The alleged assignment from CompuCredit Corporation to Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC was also not produced. Mr. Carlson's hearsay assertion in his affirmation that such assignments took place is not sufficient as a matter of law to prove that such an assignment took place. See, Palisades Collection, LLC v. Gonzalez, 10 Misc 3d 1058A (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005). Moreover, the Court finds Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony to be inconsequential to plaintiff's contention that it had a prima facie case against the defendant. First, Ms. Wohlfehrt acknowledged that she had no personal knowledge of the assignment of the alleged debt between any of the parties. Rather, Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony relied solely upon the documents that were provided after the alleged assignment took place. Second, Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony regarding the electronically transferred documents highlights the fact that there is no actual proof that defendant's account was actually assigned. According to Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony, the assignment of accounts refers to a series of credit card accounts grouped together by the first seven digits of the account numbers referred to as the bin number. In fact, Ms. Wohlfehrt acknowledged that she does not know if all of the accounts issued by Columbus Bank and Trust having the same bin number were part of the assignment. As such, there is no admissible proof specifically establishing that defendant's credit card account was one of the accounts assigned.The Court also notes that Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony is itself contradictory in that she testified that the bin number was the first seven digits of the credit card account numbers yet the documents submitted by plaintiff's counsel as evidence of the assignment only show a bin number that is six digits, not seven. Nothing in Ms. Wohlfehrt's testimony establishes plaintiff's chain of assignment of defendant's alleged debt and therefore, plaintiff's counsel did not have a prima facie case against defendant.

159


It is plaintiff's counsel's contention that plaintiff need not be able to establish a prima facie case before issuing a summons and complaint. Rather, counsel contends that the rules requiring certification of a summons and complaint require only that plaintiff have a basis in law and fact before commencing an action and need not have the requisite proof to establish a prima facie case prior to commencing an action. Counsel further contends that they fulfilled the requirements of CPLR ยง 3215 in obtaining the default judgment. They further argue that although plaintiff had never actually obtained an assignment from the original creditor at the time they filed suit and obtained the default judgment the "rules" did not require a full chain of assignment at the time the debt was acquired. The Court finds that under the circumstances presented here, plaintiff's counsel did not and could not have properly certified the complaint they filed in the instant action. 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a requires that "by signing a paper, an attorney or party certifies that, to the best of that person's knowledge, information and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, (1) the presentation of the paper or the contentions therein are not frivolous as defined in subsection 130-1.1(c)." 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1(c) defines conduct as frivolous if: (1) it is completely without merit in law and cannot be supported by a reasonable argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law; (2) it is undertaken primarily to delay or prolong the resolution of the litigation, or to harass or maliciously injure another; or (3) it asserts material factual statements that are false." Under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a a proper certification of a complaint can only be made after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances establishes that the claim asserted in the complaint has merit in law and asserts truthful factual allegations. Plaintiff's counsel should have known what documentary proof was required for a meritorious lawsuit under New York law and knew that they did not have the required proof in the instant case when they filed suit. In order for any inquiry by counsel into the merits of the instant matter to be reasonable counsel had an obligation to obtain the required documentation substantiating a prima facie case, including proof of the entire chain of assignment(s) of the alleged debt, prior to filing the instant action. As such, since plaintiff's counsel failed to obtain the requisite documentation substantiating the merits of plaintiff's alleged cause of action against the defendant, plaintiff's counsel could not certify the complaint as required under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 1.1-a. Accordingly, the certification here is disingenuous, misleading and false. In addition, counsel has a continuing duty to assess the legal and factual basis of a claim in order to avoid imposition of sanctions under Part 130 of the Rules of the Chief 160


Administrator of the Courts. See Worldwide Asset Purchasing, L.L.C. v. Akrofi, 884 N.Y.S.2d 631 (Ithaca City Ct. 2009). In the case at bar, counsel was presented with multiple opportunities to re-evaluate the claim both when it applied for a default judgment against defendant and after it mistakenly sought vacatur of the default judgment, especially in light of the fact that it was ordered by the Court to produce documentary proof of the alleged claim, including the entire chain of assignment of the debt. Ignoring their obligations, plaintiff's counsel merely produced the one assignment from Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC to its client and an affidavit containing hearsay allegations regarding the remaining assignments, including the one from the original creditor.

The Court finds that plaintiff's counsel's failure to produce the directed documentary proof is even more egregious given plaintiff's assertion at the very outset of hearing that the judgment herein was valid (despite plaintiff's prior request to vacate the same) and further given the fact that the hearing was adjourned from its originally scheduled date at counsel's request and then was further adjourned in mid-hearing for one more month to allow counsel yet another opportunity to obtain the necessary documentary proof. The apparent lack of a factual basis for the claim renders plaintiff's counsel's conduct in commencing this action without having proof of its merit frivolous within the meaning of 22 NYCRR § 130 -1.1(c). Moreover, the Court takes issue with plaintiff's counsel's contention that they fulfilled the requirements of CPLR § 3215 in obtaining the default judgment. CPLR § 3215 requires submission of an affidavit of merit setting forth the factual proof constituting the claim made by the party in support of such party's application for a default judgment. In the case at bar, the Court does not consider the affidavit submitted by plaintiff with its default judgment application to be an affidavit satisfying the requirements under CPLR § 3215. First, the affidavit is by a non-titled employee of plaintiff's servicing agent and as such is not a affidavit made by the party as required under CPLR § 3215. See HSBC Bank v. Betts, 67 AD3d 735 (2nd Dept. 2009). Second, the allegations asserted in the affidavit are not made by an individual with first hand knowledge of the facts. Although the affidavit is carefully drafted to appear as if the affirmant has actual knowledge of the underlying facts, in fact, the allegations are based upon hearsay. At one point the affirmant actually asserts "[u]pon information and belief, defendant(s) used or authorized the use of credit card account to obtain loans from the original credit grantor ...." Clearly, the affirmant had no first hand knowledge of the facts constituting the claim as required under CPLR § 3215. For an assignee plaintiff to have the first hand knowledge necessary for a statutorily proper affidavit of merit as required by CPLR § 3215 such party must have obtained the 161


entire chain of assignment(s) and the underlying documentary proof. Counsel's contention at the hearing that the "rules" had changed since the time plaintiff was assigned defendant's alleged debt is not just incorrect, its absurd. The rules have always required a plaintiff to have first hand knowledge of the facts constituting the claim when seeking to obtain a default judgment against a defendant. The fact that the New York City courts had to explicitly delineate how to satisfy the statutory prerequisite under CPLR ยง 3215 for assignee plaintiff's in consumer debt cases because of the abusive conduct of counsel for assignee creditors' does not mean that the rules have changed. Rather, it means that assignee plaintiff's and their counsel were improperly seeking default judgments in consumer cases where they did not have the requisite proof of facts constituting the claim and so the courts felt the need to direct counsel regarding the proper statutory pre-requisites for a default judgment in a consumer debt action. The Court is outraged at counsel's cavalier retort "so we don't win at trial" in response to the Court's contention that plaintiff's counsel could not have had an actual basis in law and fact because plaintiff did not have a complete chain of assignments. See January 10, 2011 Hearing Transcript, pg. 16, line 14. Clearly, plaintiff's counsel knows that under New York law, a full chain of assignment in addition to documentary proof of the contract and debt is required in order to prove a prima facie case in a consumer debt action where the plaintiff is an assignee of the original creditor. See, Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); Palisades Collection, LLC v. Gonzalez, 10 Misc 3d 1058A (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005); DNS Equity Group, Inc. Lavalle, 26 Misc 3d 1228A (Dist. Ct. Nassau Cty. 2010). Without proof of the chain of assignment plaintiff is unable to show its standing to sue the defendant and a lack of standing renders a litigation a nullity, subject to dismissal without prejudice. Citibank v. Martin, 11 Misc 3d 219 (Civ. Ct. NYC 2005). The sentiment behind counsel's statement renders the intent behind both the certification requirement under 22 NYCRR ยง 130 -1.1-a and the affidavit of merit requirement under CPLR ยง 3215 utterly meaningless. The Court is similarly appalled at plaintiff's counsel's conduct in the case at bar. First, plaintiff's counsel both commenced an action and took a default judgment without having a chain of assignment or proper documentary proof of a claim. Then plaintiff's counsel made an ex-parte application to vacate the default judgment two years later on the grounds that it was entered in error without providing a further explanation. The Court ordered a hearing to determine if plaintiff's counsel should be sanctioned for frivolous conduct for entering a default judgment in error and failing to vacate the default judgment in a timely fashion. 162


After multiple adjournments for over three months, plaintiff's counsel appeared at the hearing and asserted that its ex-parte application to vacate the default judgment had been made in error and that the judgment entered herein against the defendant was, in fact, a valid judgment. However, notwithstanding plaintiff's assertion that the judgment against the defendant was a valid judgment, plaintiff's counsel did not and could not provide any proof to substantiate its blatantly bald assertion. The Court even granted plaintiff's counsel a further continuance of the hearing to give counsel an additional month to obtain the proof required to substantiate its claim and plaintiff's counsel still failed to provide the requisite proof. Clearly, plaintiff's assertion that the judgment against the defendant was a valid judgment was tantamount to counsel

attempting to perpetrate a fraud upon the Court. The Court further notes that contrary to plaintiff's counsel's assertion, consumer debt actions are not akin to negligence actions where extensive discovery may need to be had before a plaintiff can prove a prima facie case. Rather, consumer debt actions are primarily document driven and thus, in general, a plaintiff can establish a prima facie case without any discovery whatsoever. In the instant matter, plaintiff's counsel commenced an action without having sufficient documentary proof to establish its prima facie case. Thereafter, plaintiff took a default judgment against the defendant and did so, this Court believes, in bad faith, fully knowing what proof was required to prove its case, that it was not in possession of such proof, and, most significantly, that, in all likelihood, it could never obtain and produce the requisite proof. The conduct of plaintiff's counsel not only improperly denied defendant the due process of law but is egregious, dishonest and unprofessional and holds the courts and the entire legal profession up for public scorn and ridicule. Such conduct shall not be countenanced by the Court. Based upon all the foregoing, the Court finds that the failure plaintiff's counsel, Rubin & Rothman, LLC, to obtain the requisite documentary proof of the claim alleged, including the entire chain of assignment(s) either prior to commencing the instant action or to obtaining a default judgment against defendant constitutes frivolous conduct within the meaning of 22 NYCRR ยง 130.1-1. Based thereon the Court hereby imposes a monetary sanction against Rubin & Rothman, LLC in the sum of $7,500.00 which is to be paid by Rubin & Rothman, LLC to the Lawyer's Fund for Client Protection no later than February 29, 2012. Proof of compliance with this Decision and Order shall be filed with the Clerk of this Court by that same date. 163

166


THIRD: Nassau County Courts have no jurisdiction over this matter as the alleged respondent lives in the Bronx, New York and Ford Motor Credit is located in another state. See exhibit 2, acknowledging the fact that Ford Motor Credit knew of the Defendants correct address, but fraudulently, frivolously, and harassingly litigated the matter outside the jurisdiction of alleged Defendant’s residence, in violation to CPLR Commercial Claim procedures. 167


FOURTH: The alleged Respondent does not owe any money to the attorney and or Ford Motor Credit and the fraudulent debt cannot be validated, because no money is owed.

FIFTH:

The Alleged Defendant seeks an immediate vacate of the judgment and dismissal of the complaint

based on the fact that the entire matter is based on fraud, specifically, misrepresentation of facts, no personal or proper service as required, a Plaintiff defective/fraudulent affidavit of service citing improper service rule codes, and above all because the alleged defendant owes no money to the Plaintiff and or his attorneys AND THE DEBT CAN NOT BE VALIDATED. SIXTH:

The alleged Defendant seeks the immediate vacate of the attached garnishment because it is based

on fraud and greed, the alleged Defendant owes no money whatsoever, the debt can not be validated.

SEVENTH:

The Alleged Respondent will win on the merits of the case because she does not owe the Plaintiff

any money and Petitioner’s claims cannot be validated.

EIGHTH:

The Alleged Respondent does not have any outstanding debt with Ford

Motor Credit. NINTH:

The alleged Defendants First Cause of Defense is that the alleged Defendant does not reside in the

county in which this action is brought. See Exhibits 2 and 3, verifying and confirming Alleged Defendant’s place of residence. Second, as a result of Defendants non/improper service and fraud, embedded in Commercial Claims Procedural Violations and the Plaintiff’s inability to validate the debt, the entire matter must be dismissed and the judgment vacated. The fraud is exhibited in the attorney’s willful misrepresentation in the citing of CPLR 3215 (g) on his Affidavit of Additional Mailing, when this citation has nothing to do with serving a commercial transaction notice and or summons. In fact, this citation and or authority is supposed to be used when more than one

year has elapsed between the date of the default and the filing of the motion. The attorney improperly served the default judgment motion upon respondent misrepresenting CPLR 3215(G). THIS IS FRAUD! Third, the Plaintiff complaint is in violation of Section 1809-A of the Uniform City Court Act, in that the Plaintiff does not have its principal office in the State of New York.

TENTH:

The Plaintiff’s affidavit of Additional Mailing is fraudulent, improper, and defective and

exemplifies Plaintiff conspiracy to defraud and convolute via using CPLR 3215 as authority to serve a summons and or complaint, when CPLR 3215 is for judgment for excess where counterclaim interposed. See Defendant Exhibit 4, Plaintiff’s fraud and defective Affidavit of Additional Mailing sworn August 5, 2004 citing CPLR 3215 as authority for service. See Defendant Exhibit 8, citing CPLR 3215.G authority, which has nothing to do with summons service and or additional mailing rules. 168


ELEVENTH: See alleged Defendant’s Exhibit 5, which is the Plaintiff’s fraudulent, non procedural and conspiracy to defraud the courts Affidavit of Service. This Plaintiff’s Affidavit of Service is non procedural, epitomizes “sewer service” of legal documents, and is in violation of Section 212.06 and Section 214.41aCommercial claims procedure. Summons, see Defendants Exhibit 6, Section 212.06, Civil practice summons rules clearly state that the summons is served by PERSONAL DELIVERY. The Plaintiff’s fraudulent Affidavit of Service is additionally in violation of procedures set forth for serving a commercial summons in that there is no personal service and or mailing receipts to validate sending the summons and or complaint to the Defendant and or in compliance with rules set forth .

TWELFTH:

Up to today’s date the application and the files show that the Plaintiff failed to offer proof that the

mailing of process was made by first class mail and or certified mail, as required. Defendant has copied the entire file and there are no mailing receipts whatsoever because Plaintiff’s entire case is based off of fraud, misrepresentation, and attorney misconduct in filing non procedural, defective, improper, and fraudulent documents in the court. See Defendant exhibits exemplifying such.

THIRTEENTH: Pursuant to CPLR 5015 the alleged Defendant has presented excusable default via Plaintiff non service documentation, Plaintiff Affidavits epitomizing willful sewer serving to a wrong address, when personal service is required. Defendant has provided evidence substantiating her correct address the same date/time frame this fraud was being initiated August 2004. Plaintiff fraud, misrepresentation and attorney misconduct are exemplified in the Plaintiff use of defective forms, citing improper rules and plaintiff failure to provide any mailing receipts. Above all, Plaintiff fails to establish and or present any evidence that the alleged defendant received a copy of the summons and complaint prior to the default judgment being entered against her. Additionally, the alleged defendant decrees lack of jurisdiction.

FOURTEENTH:

The Alleged Defendant Snyder specifically objects to the allegations of the complaint and

asserts affirmative defenses as noted above. This demonstrates that Snyder has a meritorious defense to the action (Beverage Distributors of Nevada, Inc. v SchenleyIndustries,Inc.,supra; In view of the above, and the well established public policy that favors a determination on the merits wherever possible, so that the parties may have their day in court to litigate the issues (see, Crooks v Lear Taxi Corp., 136 AD2d 452 [1st Dept 1988]; Stark v Marine Power & Light Co., 99 AD2d 753 [2d Dept 1984]), the Alleged Defendant Snyder’s motion to vacate the default judgment should be granted. FIFTEENTH: The alleged Defendant further states that she has requisitioned and copied the entire file, and that there is no certification and or proof of mailing of any demand letter as required pursuant to UDCA section 1803A.a. This is another procedural violation exemplifying attorney frivolous conduct in litigating civil matters.

169


SIXTEENTH: The Alleged Defendant attests to the fact that a copy of this affidavit and Order to Show Cause will be mailed via U.S. Certified mail to the attorney incorporating this fraud upon court acknowledgment. Rubin and Rothman, LLC Attorneys At Law 1787 Veterans Highway, Suite 32 P.O. Box 9003 Islandia, N.Y. 11749

AFFIDAVIT OF MERIT SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION WITH VALIDATING LAW ON THE DOCUMENTED ATTORNEY FRAUD AND MISREPRESENTATION.

The alleged defendant further reinstates that she has requisitioned the files again and there IS NO PROOF OF SERVICE MAIL RECEIPTS for anything. Defendant objects fully to placing any backdated mailing receipts in these files. When one reviews the false allegations made in the attorney’s documents, one can see that the attorney violated his ethical obligation to be truthful. He used false papers to lie and say he served the alleged defendant when he did not. He used sewer service documentation to subterfuge the fraud and to substitute required personal service procedure. Thereafter, he used defective forms and obstructed procedural rules to defraud the court. See exhibits. An attorney's reputation for veracity is the measure by which he/she is regarded and which holds one in good stead with courts and fellow attorneys. The presumption of good faith dealing which this Court assumes all attorneys conduct themselves, should not be cavalierly dissipated for the simple expediency of attempting to prevail on a motion at all costs.

Counsel needs to be reminded of the Disciplinary Rules contained within the Code of Professional Responsibility. Specifically DR 1-102 [22 NYCRR § 1200.3] providing in pertinent part that a lawyer shall not engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; or engage in conduct which is prejudicial to the administration of justice; and DR 7-102 (A)( 5) [ 22NYCRR § 1200.33] which provides a lawyer shall not knowingly make a false statement of law or fact. (see Matter of Aaron, 232 AD2d 119 (1997), where the Appellate Division, Second Department found submitting a false affidavit, affirmation to the Bankruptcy Court violated DR 1-102(A) (4) and (5) and DR 7-102(A) (5); and Matter of Kramer, 235 AD2d 87 (1997), lv denied 91 NY2d 805, lv dismissed 93 NY 883, cert denied 528 US 869, where the Appellate Division, First Department found that making false statements in an affidavit to the District Court violated DR 1-102(A) (4) and (5) and DR7-102 (A) (5) ). As was stated in the case of Matter of Schildhaus, 23 AD2d 152 (1st Dept 1965), affd 16 NY2d 748, appeal dismissed, cert denied by Schildhaus v Association of the Bar of the City of New York, 382 US 370 (1966).

Attorney Rothman should be held strictly accountable for his statements, documents, procedural violations, obstruction of justice, and unethical conduct which reasonably could have the effect of deceiving or misleading the court in the action to be taken in a matter pending before it. The court is entitled to rely upon the accuracy of any statement of a relevant fact unequivocally made by an attorney in the course of judicial proceedings.

Part 130-1.1 of the Rules of the Chief Administrator [22 NYCRR 130-1.1] provides for the imposition of financial sanctions for frivolous conduct in civil litigation. Under Part 130-1.1(c)(3) frivolous conduct includes the assertion of material factual statements that are false. The defective attorney Affidavit of Additional Mailing, his fraudulent, sewer service, non procedural Affidavit of Service, and his misrepresenting CPLR 3215 (g), and his imaginary, fictitious, invalidated debt created out of thin air, all exemplify assertion of material factual statements that are false, procedurally incorrect, and fictitious.

The affidavit of service can not be validated, just like the fraudulent out of thin air created debt, can not be validated. There are no mailing receipts and there was no personal service, despite this being a procedural requirement. There is no proof of MAILING ANYTHING in the file as of today because the alleged defendant was not served or mailed notice of this fraud or she would have answered, like she is doing now.

Additionally, the attorney frivolous and contemptible conduct is further exemplified in his CPLR 3215 attached Affidavit of Additional Mailing. This frivolous non procedural form epitomizes the creation of a document to appear as if it cites authority to serve notice, when it is pure fraud, in that it is improper, misrepresents, violates the rules for servicing a summons, and has no proof of mailings. The citation of CPLR 3215 on the attorneys affidavit, when CPLR 3215 has nothing to do whatsoever with serving a summons, is a prime example of frivolous litigation.

Defendant is invoking a counter claim for the attorney fraud, misrepresentation and frivolous civil litigation acts. Defendant asks the courts to award the $5,000 to the Defendant for having to work hard in correcting, outlining, researching and unraveling the attorney’s multifaceted fraud, misrepresentation and frivolous litigation stratagems. The courts should award the defendant, vacate the judgment and dismiss the complaint based on the unethical, fraud based, and procedurally corrupted documents and attorney conduct.

Moreover, the court should set an example via sanction so these corrupted practices will discontinue immediately. Defendant Snyder respectfully requests that the court sanction the attorney and award monies to the Defendant for being victimized by this indisputable, contemptible, and documented attorney misrepresentation and mischief. Please see the below exhibits which validate and document the Plaintiff’s fraud and Defendants defense. Thank you. 171
