    the fifth consecutive mhtnoly increase.The backlog is growing in part because delinquent borrowers are still being referred for foreclosure, but the sale of foreclosure properties continued to decline, LPS said.LPS counted 261,153 foreclosure starts in November, about the same number in October and an 18.5 percent increase from a year ago. LPS said foreclosure sales and loans moving into REO inventories were down, but did not provide any figures. Some 4.77 million homeowners were behind on their payments at the end of November, LPS estimated, down nearly 4 percent from October and more than 20 percent from a peak for the year of 6 million in January.The number of homeowners who'd missed one payment dropped nearly 5 percent from October to November, to 1.83 million, reversing three months of growth in that forward-looking statistic. The number of 30-day delinquent loans was down 9 percent from January.Another 771,460 first-lien loans were 60 days delinquent, a decrease of nearly 3 percent from October and 17 percent from January.Some 2.16 million homeowners were behind on their payments by 90 days or more, down 3 percent from October and 29 percent from January.

    and while the thief was on vacation it took a temp replacement worker to notice that the math wasn't adding up correctly. So how could the auditors NOT notice this embezzlement? In our town if there is even one penny off it has to be accounted for. Makes me think the there is more than one person involved in Illinois latest fraud.
