Ally Financial's chief executive said the company "screwed up on robo-signing affidavits," but has changed its foreclosure processes and will complete a review of about 25,000 affidavits by yearend.

 "We had a robo-signer problem, no question about it. We're embarrassed about it and we've fixed it going forward," Ally CEO Michael Carpenter said Wednesday on a conference call to discuss third-quarter results. "We are confident that we did not foreclose on anybody inappropriately and it's up to us to prove that."
