 I dont even know where to start. After contacting this company that seemed to have good rates, the sales person was outstanding in helping me get started. After the loan was locked in and i sent my paperwork in thats where things went very wrong.

The processing and under writing people did not seem to know what the hell they were doing. After multiple request for the sale documents I had sent in to the sales person, they emailed me repeatedly threatening loan cancellation if I did not supply the same documents. And this was just the begining of the process

I dont want to go into all the details but here is just a taste of the issues.

1. processor was an idiot

2. under writer did not know the guidlines- I went to HUD.gov and sent them to her so i could get approved

3. The loan took more than 65 days to close

4. The sales person gave up on giving me excuses and actually agreed that they didnt know what they were doing

5. I found out the company is not a 40 year old lender. They bought the name a few years back. They are relatively new to the mortgage business. They used to do car loans and other types of consummer loans

6. The company regularly fires people and then hires them back then fires them again.

7. Both Larry Dear and his brother Gary made a sales person names David Zilberman into running most of the company. He was just a loan sales guy and now is basically running the company. You can check out the licensing on the consumer access site for the licensing.

8. They charges me almost 3000.00 in lock extension fees at closing

9. I saw an internal email where the processing people called me names.

Bottom line- avoid this company. They are great sales people but after that, you are just a number to them.

This article is about the finance company. For the Death Grips album, see The Money Store (album).

The Money Store was a consumer finance company that was based in Union, New Jersey, but with most of its corporate employees in West Sacramento, California. It specialized in sub-prime home equity loans, and also was a large Small Business Administration lender. First Union Corp. of Charlotte, N.C., paid $2.1 billion for the lender in June 1998. First Union closed the company two years later, at a loss of $1.7 billion, as a result of a shakeout in the sub-prime market. However, the student loan division, Educaid, and the SBA loan division were retained by First Union.[1]

Alan Turtletaub founded The Money Store in 1967. He was succeeded as president by his son, Marc Turtletaub. In 1991, the company went public, and in 1997 was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Baseball Hall of Famer Phil Rizzuto (with his "holy cow" ad) was a longtime advertising pitchman for the company. He was then followed by Jim Palmer, another Hall of Famer.[2] Four known commercials also featured his wife Joni Palmer.

In 2006, the Money Store name was purchased from Wachovia Corp. (formerly First Union) by a mortgage lender based in Florham Park, NJ, but the current company is not related to the former company.[3]
