Save The Homestead From TFNB

$35,000 for legal expenses re: a predatory lending (fraud) lawsuit against TFNB, the McGregor-based bank that loaned us funds in order to refinance our home loan and to construct The Homestead at 3218. Any donation amount helps in what could be a lengthy fight to save our home & business.

Mark Mattlage-Thurmond and Rob Snowden, the owners & operators of The Homestead at 3218, averted the October 6, 2020 scheduled foreclosure by TFNB (The First National Bank of McGregor) on their Crawford, Texas farm and men’s hospitality venue, by filing a predatory lending lawsuit against TFNB, its president & an executive vice president on Monday October 5, 2020.  This action in District Court, Waco, placed a temporary restraining order (TRO) against TFNB’s ability to foreclose on Mark and Rob’s property and business thus enriching the bank through their predatory lending practices (Fraud) against their former clients.  The next step is a Temporary Injunction (TI) hearing in District Court.  However, TFNB has requested and been granted a continuance on this TI hearing to some future date.

While Mark and Rob averted a personal and professional disaster with their last-minute legal action, the prosecution of this lawsuit against TFNB by their Dallas-based legal team could last many months and incur thousands of dollars in legal fees.  Therefore, we are keeping our GoFundMe page open so interested parties can make donations to help offset the legal expenses.

We are very hopeful of success in this proceeding to end “our struggle” with TFNB.  However, your financial support will be most appreciative in this ongoing legal matter.  A sincere “thank you” to those who previously donated to raising funds on our behalf.
