AHMSI- LIAR !!!!! SAVINGS AND HOME STEALER !!!!!!!! Pretending AMHSI is a new company unaffiliated with AHM when you only bought them in bankruptcy and continued to service the loans. You had all originating docs. You chose not to disclose them. SEC bankruptcy contract. ALL files transfer. Means you release them before foreclosure. Not elect to send some of them after foreclosure.
