This company scammed me. This company worked in affiliation with the Payment Reduction Cntr in S.Francisco. I was working with both companies regarding a HAMP modification mortgage. I sent in all the paperwork and information required.
They told me they had been able to get it approved and I had to send a money order in the amount of $1,877.00 in order to pay the legal firm that was trying to foreclose on my property. That was sent on October 15, 2012.
On November 28th I received a letter from the Supreme Court of Albany from One West Bank (my mortgage company) for a settlement conference regarding my foreclosure. At that point I called this company to ask what was going on. I had thought they had approval and had sent my money over to the legal firm that was representing my bank. I also called my bank to explain to them I had been working with this company (along with the Payment Reduction Company located in San Francisco) and they should have all the paperwork. The bank stated they had no paperwork in their files whatsoever.
Since November 28th I've been trying to get this resolved with the Home Retention Center and the Payment Reduction Center. My contact at the Home Retention Center is Walter Sullivan who has successfully ignored dozens of my calls. I did speak with him a couple of times and each time he told me there was just some kind of mistake and everything was being taken care of. For over a month he has strung me along and when I asked for my money back I was told I had to fill out forms. These forms were never sent.
I've left messages, I've tried to get the name and phone numbers of the head of the company or higher managers and I was not given any.
I am seeking the resolution of a refund of $1,877.08. This company has scammed me and other consumers have to be aware of this.
I left dozens of calls for Walter Sullivan and Aubrey and except for one call back never heard from them once the problem began.
This company took my money, did not do what they promised, did not answer my calls, did not refund my money. They scammed me and have probably scammed others.

I too was scammed by them. However, also we sent a cashiers check in the mortgage company's name they cashed the check. There has to be something additional wrong with this picture.
I have had the same experience. How can I get my money back? Andy Lund 919-201-7119
Unfortunately, a lot of these companies that propose an option of foreclosure or mortgage relief do tend to be scams, or not necessarily following the rules and regulations of the states that they reach into to operate under. In this circumstance, if you have not already, you should contact the Attorney General’s office for your state. There is also a process for reporting these companies, available through www.loanscamalert.org, which also has a large amount of information available to help homeowners currently going through foreclosure. Also, you stated that you received a notice of settlement conference. If you have not already taken advantage of this option, you should contact the court and let them know that you were under the impression that a third party company was working on this for you, and that you would like to be included in this option. That settlement conference is supposed to help evaluate you for home retention options to avoid the foreclosure.
Let the PeopleClaim community help resolve your dispute.
PeopleClaim.com is a member-supported online dispute resolution system designed
to settle most common disputes quickly and efficiently—without mediation,
arbitration, or litigation. We provide a secure, confidential negotiation channel
where both sides can review facts, communicate with each other, propose terms, make
counter-offers, and reach resolution. Both parties control their side of the process
and avoid the uncertain outcome and costliness of legal action. PeopleClaim.com
is a facilitating channel: we take neither side in disputes and do not involve ourselves
in any aspect of negotiation between parties. We are supported by member dues and
non-member use fees, rather than sponsorship or advertising.
There are four steps to the PeopleClaim system: 1) Stating your complaint; 2) Making
a claim; 3) Negotiating Terms; 4) Settlement. We help you at every step of the process,
providing smart features that make your case understandable and actionable. A clear
statement of your complaint allows the other party to identify you and your problem,
and respond in an appropriate and timely way. Transforming your complaint into a
claim means establishing terms of settlement that can be acted on by the other party.
We help you organize and present your terms to encourage response and action. PeopleClaim’s
secure online channel lets you and the other party negotiate terms in confidence.
Our automated email system tracks progress, advising both sides of changes in terms,
revised offers, and any other claim-related activity. This helps the negotiation
proceed smoothly with minimum time slippage. Settlement occurs when either side
accepts an offer. Generally speaking, when executed by both sides, the PeopleClaim
online Agreement is considered a legally binding contract.
Remember, we provide a channel and structure but we stay out of your business. The
substance and outcome of your claim is entirely up to you and the other party.
There are many possibilities. We designed PeopleClaim to be affordable enough to
be used for common consumer complaints, but powerful enough to handle larger disputes.
Disagreements with retailers, product defects, and poor service of all kinds are
common claim types. But you could also use PeopleClaim to deal with problems between
individuals, or to register a complaint in a public advocacy cause. The mechanism
of stating a complaint and filing a claim is applicable to a wide variety of situations,
and we expect claimants will be inventive in their use of the system. Naturally,
in complex and large-stakes matters, or where a party is looking to establish legal
precedent, there is no substitute for professional counsel. If you think your problem
may be too big or too difficult to resolve via one-to-one online negotiation, or
have any doubts about PeopleClaim’s applicability, you should ask a lawyer.
