Readers in the San Diego area have likely heard the term "robosigning." The term refers to the unethical practice of a bank signing off on financial documents without first verifying the details or having an employee review them. The problem saw a lot of attention during the widespread foreclosure wave that affected nearly every corner of the country in the last several years, recently resulting in a $25 billion settlement between 49 states and five of the nation's largest lenders, including JP Morgan Chase.

As readers in Escondido know, one consequence of the economic downturn of recent years has been the increase in credit card default by cardholders.
