When I answered this question the first time you posted it, I told you that courts generally do not accept this argument. The court generally not require the creditor to produce the original note and certainly not without a lawsuit. What do you have to lose? A lot of time, energy and legal fees. You are free to go about tilting at windmills, but these types of lawsuits are almost always a waste of time and thet don't belong in the bankruptcy court.
