I received a mortgage litigation notice from Consolidated Litigation Group in the mail. It said I was a potential plaintiff in a national lawsuit against Suntrust Mortgage. They stsate that there were potentially fraudulent lender actions.
I called and spoke to Meshawn Davis.(323)-410-7502. She stated that there was a 100% chance that my loan was fraudulent and said the settlement would be a new loan at 80% of my homes current market value with a 2% interest rate fixed. She siad it would cost $1,350 upfront and $2,650 balance.
Is there any legitimacy to this or is this a scam?
Everything you are being told is pure speculation, if not downright lies. I’m not sure how anyone can tell you on a phone consultation that they are 100% sure your loan is fraudulent, huge red flag if you’re asking me.
Statements and warnings have been issued by state bar associations, Attorneys General, and many other consumer advocacy groups about avoiding the mass-joinder pitch. I would tend to side with them and suggest that you save the $4k, especially if you can’t afford to lose it.
