Read Complaints From Clients Of Taylor, Bean & Whitaker..COMPLAINTS AGAINST TAYLOR, BEAN & WHITAKER MORTGAGE
May 05, 2008
I work for the Federal Government; In traveling with my job, I asked a family member to pay my bills while I was away, so that payments wouldn't be late. Sadly, they weren't paying the bills but I didn't find out until it was too late. I've sent payments in to TB&W, trying to bring my mortgage current, but they sent them back - they won't allow me to bring the account current. I paid $196,000 for my home, they want me to pay $203,000 to keep it. I've contacted VA via phone and email. They promised to help but nothing is been done. We've contacted TB&W, as they asked us to and the attorney's office. We were led to believe that we would be allowed to pay what we currently have toward our mortgage (which is current expect for the month of May) but received a letter today, telling us they were going to list our home for foreclosure sale on June 3, 2008. The letter also stated that partial payments would not be allowed. That TB&W doesn't "trust us to ever pay our mortgage on time." We're new to Georgia; this is our first home. We don't want to lose it. We are good Christian people. We believe a miracle will occur - but we're scared to death.

Rotten people- mostly the Corp leaders. Farkas & Bowman are lying crooks- if you are not homosexual you dont stand a chance in that org. The Tres Ms. Brown is cooking the books.
Posted By Bubbles on July 10, 2008 at 03:59 PM

I had Taylor Bean for a year, I lost my home to them (foreclosure) in April. We fell behind on our Mortgage due to a loss of a job. When we tried to work with them they put us on a modification plan for four months. We paid on time, and when it came to the workout time I could not afford a higher payment (as he had left) I offered to continue paying but I could not take an increase. They said the only way to keep the home was to add on $350 a month to the payment. Making my home for a then single mom (he left) $2900 a month. I'm not sure if that situation can help at all. I did lose the home and loved that home.
Posted By Christina on July 16, 2008 at 11:45 PM

My daughter who is a single mom is about to lose her home to Taylor, Bean & Whitaker. She was behind, so they put her on a payment plan whiach is so high she can't possibly make it. If there is a lawsuit I would like for her to join in.
Posted By Elizabeth Wooden on August 13, 2008 at 05:15 PM


Has anyone fell victim to the " we have no record of hazard insurance so we took money from you escrow and purchased a blanket policy" After you proved to them you do have insurance. They did this to me plus paid my school tax twice. Then they tell me I do not have enough in Escrow so they raised my payment by $200.00. When I pointed out that they double paid my tax and the insurance was in fact there they tell me they need to request a refund from my county in order to fix the payment. Guess what I am now stuck paying the extra for their screww up. I think this a fraud because no two people at TBW give me the same story its always something different. If this has happened to you please email me (((ROR redacted))). I am looking to see if class action can be created.

I paid my loan on 8/29 one hour at 2:00 PST. They told me it would not post until 9/2/08 and it would be reported late to the credit bur.
Is this legal?
Posted By sjensen on August 29, 2008 at 05:11 PM

Like someone said, it depends on who you talk to at TB&W. I am in the PST time zone as well. In October I made a payment that was due the last day of the grace period.I saw a late charge show up in November. I called and they said a payment recorded by 4:00 EST is on time.I asked them to look up what time I paid it. They stated 10:30 am EST. When I challenged it, it was ignored.Is it legal? Probably because they make and twist the rules and are doing everything they can to make more money.
I will never pay it.I purchased my home for $230k when it appraised for $235k. Now it's worth $133k. Because I only put $25k down we had to pay mortgage insurance for 1 year, then 2 years and now because the home value loss to equity it will never be discontinued. theres another $100 per month in those greedy peoples pockets.

If you are at the end of the six months and time is critical, see an attorney. In some states you can "homestead" and if nothing else, you can file a chapter 13 and repay the back payemnts as the lender must work with you, the court and the trustee.

I feel your fear and frustration and I was toloosing my home. Do not wait, be proactive. Help is available. But if time is of the essence, file a chapter 13. Most lawyers will work with you on their fees.
Posted By RandyGoldheimer on September 06, 2008 at 09:52 AM

i have the same problem about the escrow account. and they are trying to get me to do the loan modification.
Posted By sjohnson on September 16, 2008 at 03:50 PM

We are currently behind on our mortgage and are seeing foreclosure I called them on several occasions before I fell behind and they would not work with me when we bacame two months behind because of decrease in pay due to economy I sent them a payment in the third month and they sent it back and proclaimed if I make two months payments the one they sent back and this month they will just add the two months into 6 monthly payments raising my payment $600 more a month! These people are crooks and don't care to work with people so they can keep thier house! We did not overspend or live beyond our means we did not overpay for our house we fell on hard times and lost more than $1000 a month due to economy! My question to whoever has went into foreclosure with this bank is how long do they give you from the moment you fall behind to get out?
Posted By Melanie on September 23, 2008 at 12:29 PM

This company has conintually charged me fees for missing a payment (that I've not missed), wouldn't let me make partial payments and refused a payment plan that they set up themselves, then won't accept a full payment either. If a class action comes against them, I sure want in.
Posted By Collin Hargett on October 13, 2008 at 05:42 PM

We're are in the process of filing for bankruptcy and I'm trying to become current on my mortage so we can file chap 7 instead of chap 13. Taylor Bean has not been too helpful! I submitted the loan modification paperwork over 3 weeks ago and have heard nothing. I do not want to lose my home. I have about 75% of what I owe to become current yet they will not take partial payments. Any suggestions?
Posted By stacie on October 14, 2008 at 10:51 AM

I actually got a loan mod from TB&W, What they did was add the payments I owed to the end of the loan.(of course that charges interest twice)yipee. What they neglected to do was change current mortgage % rate, lower my payments or anything else that would have been beneficial long term. Now I must say it was neither easy or pleasant working w/ them. Now we are back to square one again trying to afford to pay let alone in a timely manor.I feel Im subject to predatory lending since they used OT hours as income, and our credit score was questionable as well, who do I contact for info on that?
Posted By Deb on October 14, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Yes, I am another tbw customer. I wished I would have found this b-4 signing the papers.I too fell bhind on payments due to an injury @ work. They also sent back payments W/ a letter saying "insuffent funds".They also cost me about 400.00. They were surpose to pay my insurance in april and didn't.they finally paid a new company in August. But course it was more than what I had in April.
Posted By l har on October 21, 2008 at 07:03 PM

yes iam involved with tbw they did load mod now they want to raise my house payment and have me sighn papers for a high loan then my house appraised for when i sighned papers when i got the loan of them i hate these ppl dont know what to do
Posted By james bryan on November 07, 2008 at 09:29 AM

I AM ALSO BEHIND IN MY PAYMENT, I SENT IN 8000.00 EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS TO BRING UP MY PAST DUE TO ONE MONTH BEHIND AND THEY SENT THE PAYMENT BACK AFTER COUPLE OF WEEKS. I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON A PAYMENT PLAN WITH THEM, EVERYTIME YOU CALL SOMEBODY IS TELLING YOU SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I ACTUALLY PROMISED TO PUT SOME MONEY.SOME ONE PLS TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

My husband and I not only fell victims to "mortgage fraud" from Taylor, Bean & Whitaker out of Ocala, Florida, but also the realtor/Great Commission Realty/Gilbert "Bud" Jones, Oakstar Bank/Executive Vice President/Julie Barker..Their appraiser Mary Kym Craft..Their "fraud manager" Craig Weitzel promised to make it right for us, if the home came back as a one bedroom and built in the 1800's.."Well it did!" and TBW backed out on their promise and foreclosed on 10-06-08..The home was suppose to have been at least a two bedroom, built in 1954 and all the proof is there in "our favor"..TBW as well as the others I mentioned are "lowlife, rotten, thieving, pathetic liars"..http://www.ripoffreport.com/ <---Go to that site and file a complaint..What will happen then is your complaint will be on "all search engines" which is so cool for the public to see..When you go to this site and registered, in their search bar type in: Great Commission Realty and you will see "our" complaint "or" go to your "search engine/browser" and type in: Great Commission Realty.."Yes we would love to be part of this suit!!".."Thank You"..Don & Wanda Reed..Kingman, Az.
Posted By Don & Wanda Reed on November 15, 2008 at 11:50 AM

I'm with the whole lot of you. I fell behind on my mortgage payment when I lost my job in March. I was told my a Stephanie in Loss Mitigation that they would be sending me a work out package....instead, I got a letter from their attorney saying that they were initiating foreclosure. I haven't slept a wink in nearly 8 months, but I haven't given up this fight. s**t happens to all of us and there are few who keep battling. I was very lucky to find a non-profit agency that is going to help with saving my home. NOT by giving me free money or handouts, but by strong holding the mortgage company into a lower interest rate for 5 years. We'll see what happens! The name of the national non-profit company is NACA. Feel free to check it out at www.naca.com. Good luck and god bless all passengers in my boat!!
Posted By Denise on November 16, 2008 at 05:59 PM

I also am having issues with TBW but not as far as foreclosing. I had TBW for a little over a year to find out that my FHa Loan was never insured when i tried to talk to them they more or less said they couldn't help me so i had to get a lawyer then i was fixed within hours. Now i find out that they haven't paid my Real Estate Taxes or School Taxes they tell me its human error and that they will try to get to the bottom of it but it my taxes do not get paid they will send them to the Tax Collection Bureau. This mortgage company has been a complete nightmare and i am at my wits end something needs done about the way they do business.
Posted By Natalie on November 20, 2008 at 08:03 PM

I have TBW for over two years now and looking at doing a foreclosure. I have filled out their Loss Mitigation Packet and sent it a week ago. Do you know how long it takes for somebody to respond with the influx of requests? I am assuming a month at least is what they told me. I have a payment of $5000 a month which I cant afford due to my wife losing her job. I have been current on payments and am wondering if i should stop payments next month. Suggestions?? After reading the info here it seems I will not get a reduced interest rate/payment a month on my loan modification even if they agree to it.
Thoughts? Email me if you want to share your experience, I really want to know if they have been flexible over this last month due to the economic bailout.
Posted By Oam on November 20, 2008 at 08:20 PM

To the people that have been e-mailing me about Taylor, Bean & Whitaker..I have tried to reply back to you, but the e-mail comes back "undeliverable"..I just replied to Natalie and Oam by via "comments@afscanhelp.com" and it comes back "underliverable"..I guess anyone that wishes to contact me, would have to go through their regular e-mail addy instead of "comments@afscanhelp.com".."I don't know.."Don't give up people..Don't let TBW intimidate you in the least..Don't be fooled by the lies they will tell you..Stand your ground..Good Luck..
Posted By Wanda Reed on November 20, 2008 at 09:22 PM

Let's add Insurance Fraud to TB&W list of nastiness. I was in a Chapter 13 and catching up with my payments with TB&W. I was watching my account catch up online. All the sudden my account went offline. Little did I know the payments I was sending in for my condo was going to an insurance company they chose. I didn't even know I was falling behind. I called and they said they were sending me a modification letter but I got something on my door that says from Fed EX saying I have a letter that needs a signature, I am sure they are lying and it is a foreclosure letter. I am going to investigate their relationship to the insurance company...and I am calling NACA today myself.

These people are crooks and we need to unite and expose them for what they are!!!

"Absolutely Sandy!!!"..TBW are no good, rotten, lieing, yellow belly cowards..Incase no one knows this here is some information on them: TBW (National Headquarters) 315 NE 14th Street, Ocala, Florida 34470..Ph.(800)7281129..E-Mail: cweitzel@taylorbean.com "Let me give you a heads up though about the person in question e-mail addy..His name is Craig Weitzel and is suppose to be TBW's "fraud manager"..My husband & I have had many conversations with him via e-mail and landline.."First and foremost, he is a FRAUD and a "LIAR!!!"..Second, he will try to intimidate, threaten, make promises, whatever it takes, because he gets paid by TBW and is only one sided..The side that pays his paychecks..To give ya'll an idea and to make a long story short..Recently he told both my husband and myself if the home we purchased by "mortgage fraud"..If it came back as a one bedroom, built in the late 1800's, etc..TBW would make sure this serious matter was rectified to "our" satisfaction..See we bought this home "sight unseen" but we did have what we believed were honest (realtor, appraiser and original lender) and professional people working for us.."We had no idea from the get go, that we were being "scammed"..The original lender (Oakstar Bank) sold our sell contract to TBW..We believed we were purchasing at least a two bedroom, possibly three home that was built in 1954..We paid $54,000's for this "piece of crap/dump home"..Oakstar Bank, Great Commission Realty, their appraiser Mary Kym Craft & TBW "stoled our "entire savings, almost $13,000's for the down payment)..The home was appraised twice by TBW..Their first appraiser (Cynthia Speckman) falsified the report off of the original (Kym Crafts) report stating the home was a three bedroom and built in 1954..TBW (Craig Weitzel from TBW)got caught immediately, so then he said he would send out another appraiser..This second from TBW (Samatha Balsamo) did an "excellent and professional appraisal!!"..Her report came back as my husband & I stated all along..The home is a one bedroom, built in the late 1800's with severely damaged/warped wooden floors..TBW stated if the home came back as a one bedroom, etc. they would get together with Oakstar Bank and rectify this matter for us.."Well the home came back as stated, and TBW (Craig Weitzel) backed out on his word to rectify the matter..So TBW forclosed on the home last month.."Note"..We never got to live in the home, because it was't the home we were led into believing we had purchased..Not only that it is unliveable..Now TBW has a realty with the home on the market and guess what?..The home on the listing shows as a one bedroom, "buy as is" and the price is much lower ($37,790's) then what we paid for it..I got an e-mail from a gal named Diane awhile back..She claims she is involved in a "class action lawsuit" against TBW..Here is info on her if anyone would like to contact her.. (((ROR redacted))) This is the lawfirm that is suppose to be handling the suit.. Douglas S. Schapiro, Esq. Koch & Trushin, P.A.
