They called me about modifying my house loan. I check them out for 2 weeks and then I called them back. They said they had lawyers handling all loans and that they would be able to assist me, and had been in business since 2007, which was true. I have been giving them paper work since September 2011. They asked for $2900.00 up front to modify 2 home loans.I did informed them that it was illegal to ask for money up front, they said it was true, they also stated because they have lawyers working on these loans, that they could ask for fees to start working on my loans. How do I feel about this? I feel scammed…I am horrified that I won’t be getting my house modification, at this point the money is gone but so are my chances of keeping my homes. I have an upset down mortgages and I don’t know what to do. My story is so much more complicated that I have indicated, but since they are not returning my calls, I gather they are no longer in business. I do have documentation with contracts with this company will fax them to you if you can help me.
I will be traveling down to Beverly Hills tomorrow (3/5/11) to find their company. Hopefully you can help me find the right channels to help me…Thank you
