My wife and I received a letter via US Postal mail from Litigation Law Group located in Annaheim, CA. In this letter Litigation Law Group (LLG) stated that they were able to secure us a refinance on our mortgage through the HARP II loan restructure program. The loan was to be for 2% fixed rate for 30 years.
We were requeted to fill out forms which were faxed to us. The forms included such forms as RMA, DODD-FRANK, 4506-T, a question and answer sheet, as well as a Financial Work Sheet. We were also requested to submit our 2 most recent bank statements and our tax returns for 2010 to 2012.
After faxing all the requested paperwork we were then requested to send a processing fee of $3500.00. LLG sent us a FedEx label to expidite the fee delivery. The requested money was sent on a Friday evening. On Monday morning my wife attempted to contact someone at LLG to confirm the delivery of the funds. My wife phoned, faxed, and emailed four different people at LLG. No one replied or responded. This went on for 1 week.
We contacted our bank and found that the check had been deposited. Our bank advised us to close our bank account due to the fact that LLG had personal information on both my wife and myself. We filed police reports in Elgin, Illinois and Annaheim, California. We also contacted the Better Business Bureau. We then contacted the 3 credit reporting agencies to put a fraud alert on our accounts.
LLG persons contacted are: Amy Gonzales, Senior Underwriter, at (714) 924-7128, firstname.lastname@example.org
, Mary Gonzales at (714) 919-7200 ext. 308, email@example.com
, Mia Jones, (888) 410-8098 ext 228, Mary Perez, (714) 919-7200 ext. 308, firstname.lastname@example.org
, and Oscar Rodriguez, email@example.com
Our resolution would be to be refunded the $3500.00 as no work whatsoever has or had been done to secure us a Governemt backed HARP II loan.
The time period involved and the processing of the paperwork have only added to our problem
