Templeton Group1025 Old Country Rd WESTBURY, New York USA
The Templeton Group Came to my house and stole my money and have my personal information Westbury New York
Let me start off with this... This company changes its name every few months to avoid reports like this. The Templeton Group and its employees monitor this website and try to remove any reports against them. Google their name - Do you see any GOOD reviews of their services. I can see that ALL THEY DO is target people who are not "in the know." Their strategy is to target people who are desperate and don't have time to research.
I didn't even want a loan modification. I called this company about refinancing my home. All I wanted to do was have them get me a lower interest rate. Ralph Iantosca came to my house and told me the best thing to do was a loan modification.
At first I didn't trust ralph. He's a younger looking chubby man. He's maybe in his mid-to-late-twenties. He came wearing a suit and driving a budget sedan. He looks like he has never held a steady corporate job. According to google he has tried to create a cell phone repair company. There's a domain registered in his name with his cell phone and home address. Apparently his father lives at this house in oceanside and he does not.
Anyway, back to the story. By the way, this is the internet and you are literally free to write what you'd like to as long as it's true. I love the first amendment. Ralph has been through a few company name changes. They work under one name until the Department of Fiancial Services shuts them down and they start working under another name. BUT they never change their location. Take a look at 1025 Old Country Road in Westbury. This is a shotty office without any signage. I know that if I had a legitimate business I would have a sign up. According to the previous posts there is no one here that can help you. This place is basically a front for a scam. The people who work inside this building are thugs and secretaries. When you call templeton's 1-800 number you speak with a clueless secretary who only sets up appointments. I bet the secretary doesn't even know what this company does. There is no management to help you when you show up at this address or when you call.
I won't waste my time with what happens when you get scammed by these guys.. I will talk about what we can do. Lets get together and form a larger class action law suit and help the Distrit Attorney prosecute these guys. They normally keep the amount under $5,000 to prevent civil cases. Everything is small-claims and not larseny. Unfortunately for them, all of the cases put together are in the 10's if not 100's of thousands of dollars and therefore is a federal crime. According to Google, their previous company "Claremont Funding" was shut down by the Connecticut Department of Financial Services for working without a license. They were forced to pay $100,000 in damages to victims. Unfortunately they skirted their responsibility by closing the LLC and screwing all of these customers. I have spoken with the District Attorneys office and they advised me that if we can get many people together who were scammed that they can be prosicuted federally.
Please email me if you were scammed. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org - I will take your information and pass it onto the District Attorney's office and they will contact you. These people cannot continue ripping off normal consumers.
PS - STOP POSTING THE DOLLAR AMOUNT THEY SCAMMED YOU!! Each "Sales Man' They have working there starts at $2,000 and works his way up by $100 each customer he rips off. This way they can keep track of WHO YOU ARE. If you post here "Joe Smith took my $2,500" they will see who you are and contact you. THEY WILL THREATEN YOU TO TAKE DOWN THE POST.. Don't listen to it though if you are contacted. As per the First Amendment you can post anything true on the internet. Slander and Libel only apply if it is UNTRUE. If you write the truth you should not be afraid.
Thank you for your time!
