Cross-claimant NONA TOBIN, an Individual, (Herein “Cross-claimant” or “Tobin”) was the sole successor trustee, beneficiary and surviving member of the Gordon B. Hansen Trust, dated 8/22/08, (Herein “Hansen Trust”) that held recorded title to the subject property from 8/27/08 until a foreclosure deed was recorded on August 22, 2014 transferred title to the alleged purchaser at the disputed HOA sale.
Tobin claims an individual interest in this property as all the GBH Trust’s claims to title were transferred to Tobin as an individual via a quit claim deed, recorded on 3/28/17.
Also on 3/28/17 the Hansen Trust was closed as it was insolvent when its sole asset was transferred out of the trust. NONA TOBIN claims the proceeds of the sale unlawfully retained by Koch & Scow, with interest, penalties and sanctions.
Tobin files this cross-claim against Nationstar Mortgage LLC for treble damages for the loss of the property at 2763 White Sage, along with interest, penalties and sanctions, for Nationstar’s fraud on the court, abuse of process, mortgage servicing fraud, recording false claims to title, and misrepresenting material facts and the law in order to steal Nona Tobin’s property.
Defendant NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE, LLC (Herein “NSM” or “Nationstar”) is an entity of unknown origin whose false claims to own the beneficial interest of the disputed Hansen deed of trust have been without merit filed into district court cases A-16-730078-C, A-15-720032-C, and A-19-799890-C and into Supreme Court appeals 79295 and 82294.
Given that Nationstar was never required to produce evidence to support its claim to be the beneficial owner of the Hansen deed of trust, in this case, the court must determine Nationstar’s standing based on an examination of the Clark county official record for the subject property, APN 191-13-811-052 which is included in Exhibit 1
All Wells Fargo’s recorded liens have been released.
Wells Fargo’s only lien was an open-ended deed of trust recorded on 5/10/07 as instrument number 200705100001127, which has no BATES number as it was intentionally omitted in Plaintiff RRFS’s response (RRFS 001-425) to Nona Tobin’s 2/4/19 subpoena.
Wells Fargo’s release of its 5/10/07 lien by its Substitution of Trustee and reconveyance, recorded on 3/12/15 as instrument number 201503120002285, which has no BATES number as it was omitted in Steven Scow’s response to the 2/4/19 subpoena.
Wells Fargo never claimed an interest in the Hansen deed of trust and has never been a party in any of the quiet title cases related to this property.
Wells Fargo’s only claim was a $15,000 outstanding balance on the open-ended deed of trust, recorded on 5/10/07. Wells Fargo issued an IRS 1099-C cancelation of debt in 2012. On Gordon Hansen’s final 2012 tax return, Nona
Nationstar does not have standing to assert a claim for the proceeds of the sale.
None of Nationstar’s recorded claims wherein Nationstar claimed to be authorized as some other entity’s “attorney in fact” were accompanied by recorded powers of attorney, sworn affidavits, and/or proper acknowledgements compliant with NRS 107 as amended by AB 284 (2011). See Exhibit 20.
Nationstar Wright, Finley, & Zak LLP (Herein “WFZ”) attorneys were well aware of the requirements of the 2011 anti-foreclosure fraud amendments to NRS Chapter 107 and NRS Chapter 205, particularly in terms of the requirement of sworn affidavits to prove the standing to exercise the power of sale.
Nationstar replaced its WFZ attorneys on 4/10/18 with Melanie Morgan (NV Bar # 8215) and Karen Whelan (NV Bar # 10466) of Akerman LLP.
Akerman LLP replaced Karen Whelan (NV Bar # 10466) with Donna Wittig NV Bar # 11015) on 12/10/18 after Karen Whelan ignored Nona Tobin’s attorney’s attempt to get Nationstar to join with Tobin on a motion for summary judgment by providing Whelan with declarations under penalty of perjury that established the sale had been conducted without notice to the owner or the listing agent who had sold the property on auction.com three months before the surprise sale.
Nona Tobin filed a verified complaint against Nationstar for recording false claims to title and abusing the quiet title HOA foreclosure process in A-15-720032-C and A-16-730078-C with the Office of the Attorney General of Nevada on 3/14/19.

Nona Tobin filed a verified complaint against Nationstar and its Akerman and Wright Finley Zak LLP attorneys with the Nevada Mortgage Lending Division on 12/16/20 for recording false claims to title into the Clark County official property record for APN 191-13-811-052 and for abusing the quiet title HOA foreclosure process in A-15-720032-C, A-16-730078-C, A-19-799890-C, and appeals 79295, 82234, 82094, and 82294.
Nationstar recorded into the Clark County property record false, unauthorized, unverified, and conflicting assignments, substitution of trustee, reconveyances of the Hansen deed of trust on at least these dates:
The Clark County property record for the subject property, APN 191-13-811-052, are included in Exhibit 1.
Nationstar evaded detection of its fraud by voluntarily dismissing its claims without any evidence being subjected to judicial scrutiny and without putting on a case and without meeting its Plaintiff’s burden of proof.
Nationstar and Jimijack made an ex parte out of court agreement to steal the house from Tobin.
Nationstar and Jimijack conspired, concealed and misrepresented material facts and law, met ex parte with Judge Kishner, with the corrupt intent of stealing Tobin’s property.
Multiple declarations under penalty of perjury have been entered into the court records show that Nationstar’s claims to own the beneficial interest of the Hansen deed of trust are demonstrably false.
Nona Tobin has filed multiple motions into A-15-720032-C in a futile attempt to prevent Nationstar’s succeeding in its fraud upon the court that have been stricken from the record unheard based on the misrepresentations made by Nationstar at an ex parte meeting with Judge Kishner

 WFZ attorneys represented Nationstar Mortgage from its first filing into A-16-730078-C, a complaint vs. Opportunity Homes, LLC (that held no recorded interest) for quiet title and moved into A-15-720032-C by filing a motion to substitute itself as the real party in interest, set aside the default judgment against Bank f America and intervene on the closed case by filing an AACC counter-claim vs. Jimijack who had the recorded claim when WFZ sued the disinterested Opportunity Homes. WFZ filed into these quiet title civil actions statements known to be false and disclosing false evidence on 1/11/16, 4/12/16 DECL, 4/12/16, 5/10/16, 6/2/16, 6/3/16, 6/10/16, 3/27/17 DECL , 3/27/17, 11/9/17, 2/9/18, (Dana Johnson Nitz NV Bar #0050, Edgar Smith (NV bar #5506) Michael Kelly NV Bar #10101)

Note that Nona Tobin filed a sworn affidavit into A-16-730078-C, Nationstar Mortgage LLC vs Opportunity Homes, LLC stating that she wanted to JOIN Nationstar to void the defective sale so that each would be returned to whatever rights they could prove they had the day before the sale and prayed that the Court would not allow Nationstar to abuse the quiet title litigation process to gain standing that it did not have in fact or in law. 9/23/16 Nona Tobin AFFD
 Nationstar attorneys deceived the court regarding Nona Tobin’s standing to assert an NRS 40.010 claim as an individual holder of a 3/28/17 deed. NSM disclosed the 3/28/17 deed as NSM 208-211. NSM named Tobin individually as a party in all the captions. NSM did not remove Nona Tobin as an individual party when reforming the caption on 3/7/19 NTSO and 3/12/19 ANEO.
Nationstar attorneys knew that Nona Tobin was a party with recorded and filed adverse interests.
Nationstar attorneys knew that to make a side deal with Jimjack in order to prevent Nationstar’s and Tobin’s adverse claims from being adjudicated was fraud.
