I have received someone else's documents regarding their foreclosure in MD. I called to law firm to ask why the mistake and where was my personal information sent to. At first they insisted I wasn't reading the documents correctly then stated they would look into it. They will not talk to me now. I need the foreclose to happen since the bank has not made a yes or no decision on the last three contracts in the home. Something is obviously wrong. I want to know where my personal information went and I'm sure the person who's information I received is just as upset. I would like to retain a lawyer to sue for distributing my information and would like to work with the person who's information I have received.
While there may have been an error on the bank or law firm's part, in my opinion you would not have a basis to sue for this. In any civil lawsuit, you need to show liability and damages. Even if they are liable for, for example, an identity theft or other breach of security, I don't see yet that you have any provable damages. I think your best bet is to keep trying to get in contact with them, or the lawyer responsible on the case, and make sure this doesn't damage you.
