Complaint Review: Dulany Hill
Dulany Hill So Cal Residential Golden Empire Mortgage American Eagle Finance GEM AEF Real Estate Agent FRAUD Los Angeles California
SHADY. SCAM. FRAUD.
Never issued a pre-approval-EVER-even though he was pressing me to use "his lender", which I thought was a conflict of interest... Gave me a FAKE underwriting/good faith estimate. Wasn't up to standard. It was a random grid plot he made himself with no company name or agent #. Tried to press me for properties out of my price-range. Found one I liked, made an offer, it got "accepted". Still no official pre-approval so I wasn't sure I would qualify for the loan, but he kept saying "I guarantee I can get you approved", and even asked me to "embellish" a few documents to get approved for more. This allll felt wrong- but this was my first encounter with an agent and so I didn't know what to expect.
Tried to have me accept a call from a client for him and set up an appointment???
HERE'S WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING!
As SOON as the offer got accepted, this guy goes on "vacation" to florida. The only contact he'd make with me thereafter would be text messages urging me to send $5000 to the "escrow acocunt" immediately. I know the earnest money deposit is necessary but it didn't feel right. I asked him for info to set up the inspection and the appraisal. He promised it "within 24 hours". I stalled to test him. 36 hours later, no info, and he is telling me "they need it by today, the seller is FREAKING OUT"!!!
No pressure. Lol. I really wanted the house so I was considering sending the money still---wasn't sure what was going on.
LUCKILY I made a friend who happens to be an agent. She informed me that these practices are NOT NORMAL and are even ILLEGAL. I googled his name- "DULANY HILL SCAM" and whaddyuknow? He has lawsuits filed against him from THIS YEAR AND LAST YEAR FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clipperjet, Inc. v. Hill
65 Bankruptcy - Dischargeability - other
67 Bankruptcy - Dischargeability - §523(a)(4), fraud as fiduciary, embezzlement, larceny
68 Bankruptcy - Dischargeability - §523(a)(6), willful and malicious injury
62 Bankruptcy - Dischargeability - §523(a)(2), false pretenses, false representation, actual fraud
This is from the public court documents!!!!!
Also, there is this on him on RIPOFF REPORT:
"Dulany Hill SCAM AEF frauded my company for $200,000. Illegal Bait and Switch loans.Not Certified to close any real estate transactions"
When I asked him about it, he said that was his "buisness partner, not me". HOWEVER HIS NAME IS THE ONLY ONE LISTED ON THE COURT DOCS.
So then I had my good tech-savvy friend call him to get the 411. He asked him how the weather was in Florida. Dulany said, "It's great!". My friend traced the call-he was in TORRANCE, CA. When my friend told him this, he said, "oh yeah, I just got back". He then asked my friend if HE could wire the money!!!
This is a huge post and still doesn't sufficiently describe the whole experience.
Oh yeah, Dulany also made interesting comments while looking at homes.
"Yeah, I don't like this one. It's too ni**er-ish".
I expressed concern about living near Crenshaw Blvd due to high crime rates. He laughed and said, "You're not white!"
He then said "From here east is the land of the brown. Only blacks and Mexicans."
That happened to be the only area I could afford.
Found him on Zillow. :(
Yes-he is very "smooth and responsive". Not in a good way!
Here are the links to the court docs!!!
