A reader and tipster (send in your tips here) sent in an inquiry about 1st Choice Document Preparation, LLC. They expressed a concern that the company was tied to others in the California loan modification marketplace so I wanted to take a look and see what I could find.
It appears 1st Choice Document Preparation, LLC was registered in the State of California on November 8, 2011 and is a foreign Delaware corporation. The business address on record in California is 220 Newport Center Drive, Suite 604, Newport Beach, CA 92660. The registered agent is George Parker at the same address. The California address is also used by United Doc Prep (uniteddocprep.com) (source) and 1st Choice Mitigation which has an F rating with the BBB. – Source
The business address in Delaware is 4023 Kennett Pike, #610, Wilmington, DE 19807. This address is a UPS mail drop (source) and was also used for another business named Doc Prep 123 that the BBB has a warning issued as out of business. – Source
However, the website for Doc Prep 123 is still up at docprep123.com.
DocPrep123 is interesting because the website is hosted on the same servers with newportmortgagerelief.com, rescueforhomeowners,resultsforhomeowners.com, and uniteddocprep.com.
Previously we did have a consumer complaint filed that mentioned 1st Choice Document Preparation in conjunction with Results for Home Owners, see it here. I also see some complaints online about the company and a public record about a default judgment in Delaware. The defendant on the case is listed as Lindsey Davis.- Source
What is interesting about 1st Choice Document Preparation is that it appears there is no website for this company that can be found by searching their name. However, one online complaint from a consumer did mention it was PrepareOurDocuments.com.
A look at PrepareOurDocuments.com shows the site is very similar to the ResultsForHomeOwners.com site covered in these consumer complaints.
After taking a quick look at 1st Choice Document Preparation for the reader, I would have to agree, something doesn’t smell right here with the network of related and interconnected companies opening and closing but offering similar services.
