====== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Daniel Peterson Charged $1500 appliation fee before loan was approved. Verbally guaranteed that the loan would be approved. Did not furnish written proof of work to find a broker who could approve a loan or not approve. Houston Texas
This broker had an expired license and should not have been practicing. In October 2008, I was seeking financing for an 8 unit in Dallas TX. I came across the broker's website and submitted an application. Upon discussing the application further on the phone, this broker advised me that he was able to get my loan approved, and that I was to wire a $1500 app fee. Trusting his word, I wired the fee.
A week later, the broker advised me the market had changed and that my loan could not be approved. I advised the broker to keep working on my file to continue to look for people who could help me with getting approval. I continually asked for written proof and also rejection letters from banks or lenders that he had connections with but in the whole month that I was emailing him and calling him, he replied saying that he was "busy" and doing "large loans" for either himself or other people.
He could not keep track of the documents I sent him two or three times on the property and was not focused on finding a lender for me. I consulted a legal advisor on this matter and when they tried to reach him, his phone # was out of service and was unreachable. I am filing this report because this person should not be practicing without a license and I recently received emails from him for loan mods. I want my money back.
