In the continuing saga of attempts to deal with underwater mortgages, some companies have made a business around trying to "Quiet Title" as a means of eliminating the mortgage on the property -- and in a few cases have actually gotten default judgments. 

Here's an article from the Palm Beach Post describing the practice and naming some of the companies involved.
