be firmly traced back to the tsunami. it is expected more of these items will show up over the next couple of years. live in san francisco, kim bber tere, nbc news. a few months ago state attorney general harris told us about new legislation that is helping thousands of homeowners to fight foreclosure. however, there are thousands of others here in the bay area who are simply out of luck when it comes to saving their homes. the rules are stacked against them. tonight we have a joint investigation by nbc bay area and the center for investigative reporting. steven joins us tonight from the newsroom. steven? >> reporter: raj, it's been more than a year since 49 states attorneys general settle with the five biggest banks over questionable knorr closure practices. but we found thousands of bay area homeowners still in legal limbo, a quarter of them have been facing foreclosure for three years or more. this process raises questions
6:03 pm

6:04 pm
then to make up the difference, thomas paid a lump sum of nearly $28,000, an amount he says he believed he was supposed to pay, an amount found on three different mortgage reinstatement statements sent to him by his bank. thomas says one bank of america representative told him the bank got his cashier's check but another bank representative told him the bank never received it. then, according to court records another department at bank of america foreclosed on his home, put it up for auction and sold it out from under him days before christmas. >> i don't show my frustrations outside because my family. >> reporter: thomas is not alone in the struggle to keep his home. according to reality trac, an organization that tracks housing trends, from june 2008 to october 2010, 184,000 notices of default have been filed against homeowners in the bay area.
6:05 pm
that's $86 billion worth of loans and bnk of america's foreclosure trustee handled one in five of those defaulted properties, 25% of the defaulted homes in the bay area have been in default for more than three years. that's more than three times the statewide average for a home in foreclosure. >> this is all too common. >> reporter: experts say mortgage certificaservicing com stretch the process out by design because it benefits them financially. >> they are often not particularly motivated to restructure loans. they would rather foreclose on them. >> reporter: levitan studies the foreclo foreclosure system. >> servicers want to maximize the amount of their feed income. >> reporter: that's him telling congress in 2010 that the mortgage industry tacks on fee after fee that homeowners have to pay to get out of default. he has also testified on behalf of homeowners in lawsuits

against banks. take joji thomas' case. in the last year he's received four different statements from his bank outlining what he would owe in fees to reinstate his loan. the highest was $4,200 for things like property inspection fees, foreclosure fees, and other miscellaneous fees. >> the mortgage servicers are able to keep any fees and the longer they're able to stretch out a fror closure they're able to pile up more fees. even if the sale doesn't bring in enough money to pay off the mortgage loans, the servicer still gets paid. it's the investors who take it on the chin. >> reporter: bank of america's own ftc filings show it collected nearly $5 million in servicing fees in 2012. d dustin hobbs is with the california mortgage bankers association, the only industry represe representative who agreed to talk to us on camera. is this a financial model to string them along? >> no, not at all. the financial model that all
6:07 pm
servicers strive for is keeping borrowers in their homes, making their payments on time. >> reporter: he says servicers are increasingly helping borrowers make changes to their mortgages. >> servicers don't want to go into foreclosure because they're going to lose money and a customer. >> reporter: would you concede there are problems is this. >> absolutely. the industry has made tangible improvements over the years. >> i didn't do anything wrong. >> reporter: because he believes the bank foreclosed on him illegally joji thomas is now suing bank of america. in early april a contra costa judge signed an agreement between thomas and the investment group that bought his home at foreclosure auction back in december. the agreement forces thomas, his wife, and their three children from the only home they've ever known in america. the banks and investors now get their dues while thomas and his

6:34 pm
you and your wife? this wasn't just a few nights. this was several weeks housing these americans. >> three months. well, i think at least with respect to the canadians, i'm not suggesting that we're any more courageous or valiant or what have you, to us there was no discussion. there was no discussion with respect to ourselves and tehran nor with the prime minister. these were u.s. diplomats in trouble. it was the right thing to do at the moment. >> but in hollywood, the right thing isn't always the truth. true or false, in the movie when you were watching this, were you upset by watching this movie because of the falsities or something where you took some pride in it? >> well, i was bemused, quite frankly. i said i don't really remember this. >> one night when the americans were in your home, whether it's sitting and having dinner or hiding in the corner of the house -- >> really two aspects. one wondering every night to
6:35 pm

6:36 pm
true story. that's maybe where we lose our way. if you said roughly based upon a true story, i think it would have been closer to the truth. >> smiles about it now, even former president jimmy carter got involved saying the canadians were 90% responsible for getting those americans out of iran. we'll be posting this segment on our website tonight. you can see our other high-profile interviews g. to >> now to an nbc bay area follow- follow-up. allegations of so-called patient dumping have prompted the feds to crackdown on a nevada psychiatric hospital. the centers for medicare and medicaid say they have ten days to correct deficiencies or it could lose its status as a medicare provider. the ruling comes days after the california state senate accused nevada officials of providing one-way bus tickets to 1,500 discharged mental health
6:37 pm
patients without warning california can and other states that it was sending the patients their way. >> a rare owe can kurns in washington, d.c. every single democrat and republican in the senat agreed to a crucial piece of legislation. a rare moment of political harmony. furloughed air traffic controllers will go back to work and flight delays in theory should be diminishing. the furloughs were part of the federal sequester cuts and delayed more than 6,000 flights since sunday. the new bill allows $253 million earmarked for airport improvements and that money will be used to pay air traffic controllers instead. the famous movie "pulp fiction" comes to the bay area again. what local police discover. a new survey reveals teenagers and surprising thoughts of what influences them while driving. and good evening. i'm jeff ranieri live in petaluma with the butter and egg day parade and festival coming up tomorrow. we'll be joined by tony of the

we are counting down to the first pitch, giants on nbc bay area tonight in about eight minutes. but first we start with jim kozimor at the big ticket event. guys, what an exciting place to be, right here, oracle arena, game three, western conference playoffs. the warriors and the denver nuggets. tied with one win apiece. for the warriors there is concern heading into game three. in it game two seth curry injured his left ankle. earlier tonight we witnessed seth curry on the floor.
6:53 pm
he began by jumping rope. he had a wrap around the left ankle. he was getting himself warmed up and ready to go. he then went through the paces to determine whether or not he could play in game three against the denver nuggets and, remember, the guy shots the lights out in game two, big reason that the warriors won. earlier marc jackson gave us the word on the availability of seth curry. >> he looked good. i didn't really have to see him shoot around but i'll wait to have a discussion with him when i'm done here, but he looked -- obviously he didn't look 100% but he looked like he's definitely able to play. i don't know how he felt, though. >> all right. first home playoff game for the golden state warriors in six seasons. this place was explosive in the we believe years. and as the fans continue to file into oracle, the warriors players themselves are hoping
