Home Mortgage Protection Services, Christopher Tuft2913 El Camino Real Suite 567 Tustin, California United States of America
Beware of a home based business launched by Chris Tuft, Rich Weinberg, Robert Watkins, Patrick Williams, and Kristi Brungardt of Orange County, CA that go by several different alias's and scams homeowners out of $7,500 under the theme of "Saving Your Home From Foreclosure" via use of the court system.
This unregistered (home based business) is ran out of an apartment building in Costa Mesa, CA and touts to the general public a huge success rate of SUING the lender in order to keep your home and saving you from foreclosure with a FAKE impression that they have large offices in Southern California. Using 5 different names: Home Mortgage Protection Services, Home Mortgage Protection Services & Litigation Services, Home Mortgage & Bankruptcy Services, Robert Watkins Legal Services, and MTM Services are just a FEW of the alias's this scam is run under.
That last publically known address of their BIG TIME office space, when investigated, turns out to be nothing more than a MAIL BOX company where they rent a small box.
This company quotes the law when in fact there is NO attorney on record but they do offer a glorified paralegal that spins paper and prints a fairly empty, 3 page legal claim filled with several misspellings and marked IN PRO PER. HMPS/MTM Services then faxes you the few sheets of paper you get for $7,500.00, pats you on the back, and advises that you are off alone and file it yourself.
This company STRATEGICALLY does not take personal checks, ONLY Cashiers Checks so that you cannot trace them back. If you did trace back a check and looked at the back, you will find that the check you wrote is laundered thru a check cashing service as HMPS/MTM Services does not have normal business bank account in an effort to dodge the police dept and the law. To further float below the legal radar, they don't even have a DBA on file in any county in CA.
Caution, this group of thieves will also use different names (the most recent one is Mark Richards) so make sure you investigate any legal organization before you pay them money to save your home. It is illegal for any one, other than a licensed attorney, to charge money up-front to save your home from foreclosure in California.
