Help for Homeowners Hurt by Sham Mortgage Relief Company

Share this page

A homeowner who’s worried about foreclosure or desperate to refinance might listen to a caller who promises to help. Unfortunately, not all cold-calling telemarketers do what they promise. Enter the Federal Trade Commission’s nearly $3.6 million settlement with Prime Legal Plans. Claiming to represent a non-profit, Prime Legal Plan’s telemarketers called homeowners nationwide, and promised expert legal help — for a fee — to stop foreclosure. Homeowners who paid the company $595 to $750 a month to save their homes ended up with more debt, and little or no help. The FTC will work with the court to return money to the homeowners.

If you're having trouble paying your mortgage or have a foreclosure notice, contact your lender immediately. You may be able to negotiate a new repayment schedule. Legitimate resources are available to help, including housing counselors who are knowledgeable about foreclosure prevention options.

The FTC enforces the Mortgage Assistance Relief Services (MARS) Rule, which makes it illegal for a company that sells mortgage assistance relief to collect any fees until it gets the result you want.

Please let us know if you paid a fee in advance to a company that claimed it would help modify your mortgage or save your home from foreclosure but didn’t come through.

They originally told me that they were part of the government, and that they were created after the housing crisis of 2008, but that doesn't look to be the case when I see the actual application they sent me.

Any new info on this company ?

I'm dealing with the same company ncrc
And wanted to know if it is a scam

I was working with them NCRC with David Goldman and sudently stopped calling then it was Steve smith and now they want 4 payments of 1200 dlls, I walked away I'm trying the Bloom Law group but still 4 payments of 880 and I have to file for bankruptcy my self, the only ones I trust are hamp and hope, but their help is very limited, this is very discouraging. Has anyone dealt with bloom law group?
