On March 3, 2009, After doing some research through the Better Business Bureau (BBB) on Hope Now Financial Services Corporation, I could not find no negative reports/remarks on this company. Mr. Barry Parker (Loan Modification Counselor) with Hope Now Financial Services stated that his company approved me for the Hope Now Modification Program.
I completed and sent the modification package back to Mr. Barry Parker by fax (1-206-338-2147), along with a check debit for ($2000.00) as part of the $3495.00 for fees/legal services. Thank God! I had change the bank account on 20 March 2009, due to fraudulent activities not associated with Hope Now Financial Services Corporation. Two additional check debits in the amount of ($1495.00) was suppose to come out of the the old bank account on the 22 March and 1st April 2009.
I had ask Mr. Barry Parker if his company/services was a (HUD) approve agency, and he stated that it is was. He also stated that his company provided real estate legal services through (Kwasnik, rodio, kanowitz & buckley, P.C), approved the the Attorney General of New Jersey, and that they would represent me throughout the loan modification process with my mortgage company
I tried to contact Mr. Barry Parker by email/phone several times on the new bank account information within the past week and a half, but he has not responded to the email that I sent him nor can I leave a message, due to his voice/message box being full!. When I try to call customer service, the phone will keep ringing or the customer service representative would state to me that they would leave a message/return a call back to me, which has never happen. After becoming very suspicious after not hearing from the company and Mr. Berry Parker within a week and a half, That when I had found on the website (ripoff report: Hope Now Financial Services Corp). I am in the process of contacting the Better Business Bureau, and the Attorney General in Virginia/New Jersey.
