I was contacted in early March 2012 by telephone call from David Niman with the CLS Group (EQUITY PARTNERS)and was told by him he was in the business of working with mortgage companies to get the best deals on mortgage-refinance possible. I gave him information he said was needed to submit to mortgage co. to get prequalified,he called me back in several hours and said he had found a company that would refinance me at 2.9% for 30 years and he would fax me all the papers and information to get the process rolling, I filled out all paperwork and sent it back to him . Niman then called me back and said everything looked good and all he needed now was a $1500.00 check to take care of legal work,title&etc.before he could do anything else so I sent a check to him made out to Equity Partners and that was the last contact I have ever been able to make with him ,they got my money and vanished.
Consumer Action Taken:
I made a police report with my local police dept. and they have tried to get the authorities in Wilmington Ca. to help with this situation to try to do something about these scam artists and have had no luck at all,I hav contacted numerous California State and Federal Authorities with my complaint and have now seen on the internet where many other people have suffered the same scam and have filed many complaints and no one has gotten any help from anyone yet, it is as if no one cares that people have been scamed out of thousands of dollars by the CLS Group and David Niman of Wilmington Ca.
