Double Take 'Toons October: Robo-Signing

NPR Double Take revisits 2010 with a month-by-month year in review.

In October, the housing industry experienced two messes. In the first, mortgage companies that had rushed through paperwork on thousands of foreclosures were forced to suspend many of these proceedings. A mortgage-bond mess also came to light when the New York Fed and other investors asked Bank of America to buy back thousands of toxic loans.
