I sold my house and now escrow is refusing to give me the money because they claim I have two loans in my name that I never took out or are not showing on my credit report. I want to my house back.
You should discuss this with an attorney. First, you said you sold your home. This means you need to give the buyer clear title. You then say you have loans that you never took out. Either this means you found a judgment that you were not aware of (sometimes such judgments pertain to other people with the same name and can be cured by affidavit) or there are mortgage loans you say you didn't take out. This latter problem would be quite unique, as a mortgage is a notarized document recorded as a public record. If you didn't sign a document that is notarized and filed as a record, that is a crime and you should contact the sheriff of your county to report the fraud. Finally, you say you want your house back. If you sold it, you should only be interested in getting the money you have coming after paying to clear the title as your contract of sale requires. Again, you need to talk to your own attorney.
