Gary Dourdan

My Bank Screwed Me Over

3/12/2012 4:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Dourdan says the bank that holds his mortgage is flagrantly violating his legal rights and demonstrating heartless indifference to people caught up in the recession ... and he's ready to prove it to a judge.

Dourdan just filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- in which Gary confesses he's one of the victims of the economic downturn that hammered the entertainment industry. Gary took out a $922,000 mortgage in 2004 which requires him to pay $5,000 a month.

All was going peachy until Gary was laid off from his acting gig in 2010. The actor couldn't meet his monthly nut so he contacted Union Bank and asked for mortgage assistance, which he claims it was required to give him under California law.

Gary says the bank told him to pound sand for an entire year, when they finally offered him help ... but Gary says the bank didn't honor the new terms and now foreclosure proceedings are underway.

Gary wants the court to stop the foreclosure and damages to boot.

I've had it with these stupid Hollywood 'stars' who make a s-load of money for a few years and don't set up their finances so they're set for life. You don't need 3 Maseratis, morons. Pay off a nice house, get some investments, take care of your fmaily, and then have some fun with what's left over. Unless you're Paul Newman or whatever, the money flow WILL stop at some poing.

Cigarette smoke???

As for the foreclosure, good luck with that! Sounds like this one contributed his major share to his own financial problems, and we all know what I'm talking about!

You had it all and you blew it, mister.

So you stopped paying for the loan on your house and your bank is a meanie?

This has to be racism. Obama promised black people wouldn't have to pay for anything anymore.

He got booted from CSI shortly after getting arrested for heroin in LasVegas. I don't think the bank made him shoot up.

Didn't I read he did drugs? Guess he had money for that and all the smokes he is buying. He is broke.

The film and music industry is known for it's ups and downs. Moral of the story, don't spend more than you can afford and always save for a rainy day. Plus, there are plenty of hard working Americans who work 40+ hours a week or have been really laid off or lost their jobs who are suffering more than you are Gary. No sympathy from me for blowing all your cash.

I read about the drug problems too. If he had money for that, then I don't feel sorry for him. There are plenty of people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own and lost everything. So, you have to move to a cheaper, smaller house Gary. Sad. Grow the f--- up!!!!
