The Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services issued a cease and desist order to Ocwen on Thursday and said that Ocwen has had difficulty keeping accurate records and with properly crediting borrowers' payments. Ocwen, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in the servicing and origination of mortgage loans in the United States and internationally.

"Ocwen has repeatedly made mistakes and taken shortcuts at every stage of the mortgage servicing process, costing some consumers money and others their homes", CFPB Director Richard Cordray, who was appointed by President Obama, said in a statement.

"Borrowers have no say over who services their mortgage, so the Bureau will remain vigilant to ensure they get fair treatment", the statement continued. The frustrating and expensive experience of one consumer cited in the CFPB lawsuit illustrated the problems some borrowers confronted when dealing with Ocwen.
The company said the accusations by the federal agency are "inaccurate", "unfounded" and the result of a "self-serving conclusion". "I can't tell you the number of hours I and others spend on basic servicing technology blocking and tackling".
