Nine Year Mortgage provides a service to its customers that allow them to pay off debts within nine to ten years. Their program is automated and guarantees people get out of debt that are seeking help. The service is something that an individual could do on their own; however, they have found that it provides the structure that is needed to help them become successful in eliminating debt through the use of discipline. Nine Year Mortgage (NYM) stated that their customers must be current on all debts and they generally turn away 95% of inquiries because of that standard. It is a service for those that have tried on their own and been unsuccessful.
Like many competitors in their market, NYM advertises on the radio through national spots and Sirius Satellite. Although, they state that other companies try to negotiate with credit card companies and mortgage companies for rates that have a negative impact on the clients credit history. Their program allows for a one stop shop that lays out a plan for paying off debt in the fastest manner possible. They state that their company works with clients to make sure they have a great experience and if not, they will provide a full refund and help them with fees still owed to NYM.
Nine Year Mortgages sales process starts working when a client inquires about their services. The company states that a CD is mailed to the individual and they cover the shipping charges. Once an individual has received CDs an outbound agent calls to discuss qualifying questions to discover if they are a good candidate for the program. If the client moves forward, a plan is created and two people from NYM work with them to complete the sale. The client is then responsible for making monthly payments.
The company notes that they very rarely have complaints because they are working with clients for nine years. For the first month, they are usually talking to clients every day to get their plan established, and then communication becomes less as clients progress in their program. When they do have issues that arise, they try to work out the problem by phone; however, the company states that complaints are rare. One thing the company is aware of is that they have over promised in some areas when closing a sale. They stated that they are currently working to under promise and over deliver through specific parameters that will better help in qualifying candidates for the program while providing the best customer service possible.
Since Nine Year Mortgage is part of the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program they have added a Money Back Guarantee, free End of Life legal services, and become more lenient in times of hardship. The company thinks that it is great that they are working with Ripoff Report to redeem their reputation and take a proactive approach to complaints in their industry. Like Ripoff Report always says, .. All businesses make mistakes.. how they take care of them is what separates good businesses from bad businesses.
Ripoff Report found the Nine Year Mortgage management team to be high caliber, well trained, and competent. Bill Erickson, VP of Customer Services stated, "I have seen great dedication to each client's success from every member of our team. The fact that we guarantee their success is a natural result of that commitment. Our passion is to fine tune things so that clients can reach their debt free goals months, or even years ahead of schedule. In my 40+ years in the banking and financial services industry, I've never had the extraordinary level of personal satisfaction that I have here over the lives that we change for the better. This program has proven invaluable to thousands of families who are getting the help they need to get out of debt."
Nine Year Mortgage employees truly enjoy serving clients and treating them as family. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this from Financial Plan Coordinator Steve Larsen, "Nine Year Mortgage provides a very positive work environment for us. Opportunities for suggestions and improvements are encouraged and implemented. Every level of management is concerned about our contribution to the company and providing growth opportunities for us. They take the time to listen and communicate with both employees and customers."

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Nine Year Mortgage Nine Year Mortgage Has An Enticing Radio Ad...BEWARE! It's a SCAM! Internet
Anyone ever heard of Nine Year Mortgage? They have an enticing radio ad on Sirius radio that promises to lower your monthly expenses by eliminating all your debt...in as little as nine years. They use words like "compound interest" and claim they have a special program that has secret mathmatical algorithms that allows them to be able to guarantee that you be completely debt free in the promised time or you get 110% of your money back! Seems to good to be true, doesn't it? It is. Unfortunately my fiancee was laid off recently and is struggling (as many are) to find another job. We are both military reservists trying to make ends meet on one full time paycheck and Nine Year Mortgage seemed like a promising solution.
After undergoing three conference calls that averaged 2.5 hours long to "qualify" for their program...which if you have any debt at all, you qualify. They never really clarify what services they offer and lead you that since their commercial claims they lower your monthly debt, they do this by working with your creditors to lower interest rates. Not so! Be aware that all Nine Year Mortgage does is pay your creditors every month by electronically drafting money out of your bank account. Well hell, my bank has Bill Pay and it's free. They pick one creditor with the highest interest rate and pays more to them. Their special financial plan to get you out of debt is no different than Dave Ramsey's snow ball effect for eliminating debt. You can do this yourself!
Want better finance tools? Sign up for mint.com, it also is free. If you ask to see Nine Year Mortgage's mock version of their financial plan and online account system prior to signing up with them, they won't provide it. They pray on those who are financially struggling and make their financial situation worse for their own financial gain.
Nine Year actually has a "refund committee" that only meets every Friday to make refund decisions. Let me tell you, they will never issue a refund, but try and swindle you out of more money by staying with their program at a "substantial savings". They always have an excuse why they still have not made a decision on your refund. We have filed complaints with the Utah BBB, the FTC and the Utah and Arizona attorney general. Our attorney has reviewed our contract with Nine Year Mortgage and has determined that we have been swindled. We will still fight, even if we must file a lawsuit.
