Correction: Mortgages-Robo-Signing Story

In a July 18 story about the continued practice of using fraudulent signatures on mortgage documents, called robo-signing, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Essex County registrar of deeds in Salem, Mass., erroneously reported that since Oct. 1, 2010, the office received 1,300 documents all robo-signed with the name Linda Green. That office now says none of these documents had Green’s signature but instead carried signatures of other known robo-signers. Green worked for DocX, a mortgage paperwork processing company that shut down in May 2010, four months before the robo-signing scandal came to light.
