Idaho Now Issues Mass Joinder / Tort Litigation Warning About Corvus Law Group

With more and more states now taking action to protect consumers from bogus marketing of mass joinder and tort litigation suits against their mortgage company, now Idaho has jumped in the pool. The Idaho Attorney General says:

A company called Corvus Law Group is mailing ads to Idaho homeowners inviting them to join scam lawsuits against their mortgage lenders, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden warned today. The ads look like government forms and claim homeowners can get large principal reductions or other monetary relief if they join the lawsuit.

“The scam is a pretext to collect an unlawful $5,000 upfront fee from homeowners,” Attorney General Wasden said. “The representations in the solicitations are false and are designed to prey on vulnerable homeowners. My office is currently investigating this company.”

The ads, which appear to be “notices,” may be mailed to homeowners or posted on their doors. Typically, the business asks for a “retainer fee” and may ask homeowners for their credit card numbers or offer to set up a weekly payment plan.

State and federal laws prohibit companies from charging upfront fees for foreclosure rescue or mortgage modification services. Beginning September 1, it is unlawful for a person to charge a fee, upfront or otherwise, for these services, unless the person offering the service is licensed with the Idaho Department of Finance or exempt from its licensing requirement.

“I encourage homeowners who have lost money to this business or other mortgage rescue companies to file complaints with my Consumer Protection Division,” Wasden said. Complaint forms are available here or by calling (208) 334–2424. – Source

  1. Corvus Law Group lawsuit filed 11/9/11 in the state of Idaho, U.S. District Court, District of Idaho. Case No. 1:11-cv-00549-EJL.

    Clients are represented by the reputable Marcus Mumford.

    Case filed against BANK OF AMERICA, N.A.; COUNTRYWIDE FINANCIAL CORPORATION; BAC HOME LOANS SERVICING; COUNTRYWIDE HOME LOANS, INC., AND RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A.; MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC.

    We have been rather disappointed that we were catagorized alongside those who were legitimate scam agencies, such as Kramer and Kaslow, who were never even affiliated with attorneys. We are in the process of working on a resolution with the Idaho Attorney General’s office, who have specified their issue was with the format of a mailer we sent to notify potential candidates that they qualified for a future case, rather than the legitimacy of our services. This has been rectified. They made their claims without performing an investigation, or even attempting to contact us, and now they’re actually performing the research and we are ensuring full compliance on our end. The BBB has also confirmed that we have never had a complaint lodged against us. More importantly, we have no claims filed with the State Bar. Being that we have great working relationships with the attorneys general in other states in which cases have been filed, some of them also sponsoring cases against lenders, we have full confidence that this issue will soon be resolved.

    We are soon to be filing our Case against Bank of America and Countrywide in the state of Washington, in addition to national campaigns against Chase and CitiBank.

    We have received no contact attempts from any media agencies to verify any claims or investigate our firm or case histories.

    If you would like, I would be happy to provide a copy of our current mailer, which is in full compliance.

    • You (Corvus, Ryan, et al) have been in the “process of working on a resolution with the Attorney General’s office” for MANY months now.   You also told me you were going to sue them for slander.   Looks like you didn’t, for some reason.  And they fully stand behind their statement about you.    Pudd(proof)ing.

  3. I’m doing reserach for a third party about Corvus.
    I’ve checked with Better Business Bureau and their have been no complaints filed against Corvus. I called the Attorney General’s Office, and there are ZERO active/open complaints filed by Consumers.
