1st United Consultants contacted me approximately a month ago telling me they may be able to save me approximately 300 a month for the length of my morgage. This service there was no charges involved. (If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is a scam)
I told this man John Khoury I did not think so because I only had about 5 years left with a 50,000 balance. He said he would call me back in 10 minutes and when he did not I assumed he could not do anything.
This evening appproximate 5pm I received a call from a different John Khoury with great urgency in his voice that my contract to receive this reduction was going to expire. He wanted to know why I did not sign this contract and return it. I had not received it. He had me to go to my computer and they emailed me documents that I could download in PDF form. I became very uneasy as I was going forward with these documents. I asked him how he was getting paid and he said four months of my new mortgage would go to them while they get me in this universal great rate reduction program. I asked him why my morgage company would want me to pay less and to them he said because I am paying over the average rate. It was my morgage company who refered me to them. After I sign this document my morgage company will be sending me documents. My husband walked in and tried to talk with the man and he would not let my husband talk.
I told him I would call my bank, on Monday and he said it would be too late the documents had to be turned in today. There was allot of double talk going on, he kept saying he hated to see me lose this deal.
I told him he could have called before so I could have checked this out and maybe I would have signed. I let the deal go and after reading the complaint above I hope some one stops this company. I also hope everyone can get their money back from this company.
Consumer Action Taken:
I did not electronically sign the documents or give my credit card number. I hope by viewing and opening the documents I will not have any trouble.
