If you thought they were gone, think again. The foreclosure phenomenon known as a ‘zombie foreclosure’ has proven that it is here to stay. A zombie foreclosure occurs when homeowners leave their homes when they receive a notice of foreclosure only to find out years later that the bank decided not to foreclose on the property; leaving title in the homeowner’s name.
Oppenheim Law is currently investigating and evaluating recall claims pertaining to the mislabeling of herbal supplements, vitamins, and nutrients. The New York Attorney General recently sent out cease and desist letters to suppliers who have deliberately, knowingly, recklessly or negligently mislabeled herbal products. This includes products from Wal-Mart’s Spring Valley brand, Target’s Up & Up brand, Walgreens’ Finest Nutrition brand and GNC’s Herbal Plus brand. These products, which allegedly contained herbal ingredients such as Gingko Biloba and Saw Palmetto, were found to contain little to no trace of their labeled ingredient and instead were made up of fillers such as powdered rice, beans, peas and wild carrots.
Some supplements contained unlisted fillers such as powdered legumes, a class of plants that includes peanuts and soybeans, which can both trigger allergic reactions.
A product which was labeled “gluten free” was also found to contain wheat as filler. These companies have been deceiving the public into believing that they are receiving the benefits of these herbal supplements, vitamins and nutrients, when in reality they are ingesting nothing but fillers with potential risk for allergic reactions. If you have purchased any of the products listed below, please contact Oppenheim Law at 1 – (888) 384-6114.

It should have been a straightforward case, but a clerical error put Bank of America on the losing end of a four-year foreclosure case Wednesday.
The bank won a final judgment against homeowner Heather Epstein in 2009. By the following year, she had vacated her Tamarac condo, and Bank of America gained control of the property with a new certificate of title.
The problem was the mortgage and all subsequent documents included an incorrect legal description of the condo.
“It’s about mistake upon mistake upon mistake,” said Epstein’s attorney Roy Oppenheim, who teamed with Donna Greenspan Solomon of Solomon Appeals Mediation & Arbitration and Jacquelyn Trask and Geoffrey Sherman of Oppenheim & Pilelsky. “And the mistakes continue to compound.”
