Memo to JP Morgan Chase Bank: O.J. Simpson‘s safely tucked away in a Nevada prison.
Showing once again the ridicule in mass foreclosures, JP Morgan’s process server tried to hand their filing to the fallen NFL icon on a daily basis at the former running back’s homestead on SW 112 Street in Kendall, according to court records.
Couldn’t find the former Buffalo Bills running back at home.
Maybe that’s because The Juice is dwelling in a desert prison the next 33 years after being found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008?
Somehow, Simpson figured out the bank was after him and decided to fight the attempt to have the ranch house sold on the courthouse steps!
Records show Simpson, 64, took out a mortgage after he arrived in Florida in 2000. At the time, he avowedly moved here to escape paying a $33.5 million civil judgment to the family of Ron Goldman, the man he was accused of killing along with his ex-wife Nicole in 1994. While he was found not guilty of the murders, Simpson was found liable in a civil trial.
Simpson eventually settled on the four-bedroom crib in Kendall after several gated communities rejected him.
And he took out a $592,000-mortgage to buy the $575,000-house, according to property records.
The former Heisman Trophy winner, however, quit making payments in March 2010, according to the filing. By then, he’d been in prison for nearly two years.
He currently owes $724,354.15, including interests, fees and penalties. And attorney Leonardo Starke reps Simpson.
Starke didn’t return calls but his pleadings deem JP Morgan’s filing “ambiguous and vague.” While JP Morgan’s going after him, the loan was made with the defunct Washington Mutual.
