“Incredibly, sometime in January 2017, defendant Altisource for Deutsche contacted Pepco Electric and had the power company change the account into the name of Altisource. Plaintiffs learned after contacting the utility supplier that Altisource established an account with the power company, giving false information that the property was vacant and “bank-owned”, despite the ongoing physical occupation by plaintiffs as their primary residence since 2006.”
