Finance Maryland DBA Mariner Finance Descriminatory Lending Baltimore Maryland
Ok, here is how it starts. My wife and I took out a loan to buy a very expensive puppy and fish tank. We are told that financing is available through Finance Maryland. We sign on the dotted line and all goes well until about 2 months ago. With a decent amount of credit card debt we enrolled in CareOne credit counseling. The idea was to consolidate all of our payments into one large payment and possibly end up saving some money. Anyway, in first contact with CareOne, they tell us they had dealt with CareOne in the past and were fairly certain that they would accept $69 a month instead of our normal $92. Ok, so the proposals go out... Months pass and we start getting nasty collection letters from Mariner Finance. A phone call reveals that they didn't receive the proposal, surprise. After wrangling with the local branch entirley too much, they decide they are going to call CareOne to straighten it out. So, needless to say they reject the proposal and now the account is past due. I wouldn't have a problem with that except that we didn't come up with the payment amount ourselves, it was based on CareOne's previous dealings with Finance Maryland. After asking around, nobody can tell me why it was denied nor explain to me why the proposal was denied. At this point, our account is still past due which we need to bring current to get out of collections. As far as Finance Maryland is concerned, they are the biggest ripoff I have ever seen. They send you checks in the mail trying to give you more money - how secure. Their interest rates are higher than a credit card. Also, they apparently discriminate against their borrowers. If you can help it, stay away from these crooks... We are going to pay them off in a few months just to get them out of our hair. Derek Grantsville, MarylandU.S.A.

Conseco Finance Greentree Financial degrading harrassment Minnesota
We got behind for 2 weeks on a payment and they called day and night and harrassed me and my husband, I had a stroke and my father had just died and my husband who has a heart condition and is disabled. They called for instance and told my husband he needs to get off his lazy ass and go to work. that was their exact words. They said i may as well give them the house since i was sick and we could no longer afford it. We hurried up and refinanced the house to get rid of them only to lose it anyway because we could not afford the new finance company wich is another story, but conseco charged us over 9000 dollars in early payoff fees for a 102,000 dollar loan and it ended up costing us 112,000 to refinance, then when the house was repossed we found out they had not even let the title office know the house had been refinanced and that cost us another 6 months of fees. they kept calling even after the house was no longer with them and harassing us and we told them it was not their problem any more. two years later we ended up broke and bankrupt and all because of their harassment, I am on disability now because of a stroke from diabetes and high blood pressure and the house I land and home I lost had been in my father's family since 1908, the house that was worth over 140,00 was sold for 38,000. I felt sick. Bank one and conseco did a number on us i was not of sound mind having had a stroke and my father just dying and my husband sick also with a nerve problem and heart trouble , now has a stent in his heart after having a bad heart attack. Predatory lending should be stopped in south carolina before more people fall victim like us. Freda spartanburg, South CarolinaU.S.A.

Aqua Finance Aqua Finance is unscrupulous Wichita Kansas
3 years ago, we purchased a water softner system and receiving financing through Aqua Finance. Approximately 2 years ago, we defaulted on our contract and were sued. Judgment was entered against us 1.5 years ago. From the month that judgment was entered against us, we submitted to Aqua Finance a repayment plan, to which they never responded. We immediately began making payments under our proposed payment plan, exceeding our original payment plan, and to date have not missed or been late on one payment since initiating the repayment plan. Today I was contacted by an attorney's office representing Aqua Finance stating that they had a judgment and wanted to make payment arrangements. I explained to the attorney's office that I was making payments to Aqua Finance and he stated that he does not have any record of payment for 1.5 years (since the judgment). Clearly I have proof through my canceled checks that payment has been received, and I've also received confirmation directly from Aqua Finance in the form of letters stating they've received my monthly payments. I suggested to the attorney's office that he contact his client for proof of my payment history and he told me it was my burden to prove I've been paying. I explained that my obligation under the judgment is to repay Aqua Finance and that is where my obligation ends. He said he would initiate garnishment proceedings since i'm not paying. I reiterated that I am paying and have been paying and he told me that I need to provide him proof. We went back and forth for some time until he became very beligerant and eventually hung up on me. I immediately called Aqua Finance and spoke to a representative. The representative told me that she cannot discuss my account with me and that I would need to speak to their attorney. I explained that I have tried to but that he refuses to contact you and that you need to provide proof that i'm paying. I requested a full accounting of my history and she stated she would mail it to me. I asked her to provide to me the name and address of the attorney and she said she did not have that information available to her. When the attorney's office contacted me, they had blocked their number. My frustration with Aqua Finance is their obvious complete disorganization with collection accounts and their practice of contracting with attorneys and agencies who resort to bully tactics in an attempt to collect on their accounts. While I'm an exception (as I am paying on my account per the judgment), how many others are out there experiencing this clear violation of their rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act? I fully intend to file complaints with the Consumer Protection Division of the district attorney's office against both Aqua Finance and the attorney representing them as well as with the Kansas Bar Association. My advice - stay away from Aqua Finance. They're unscrupulous and have extremely poor business standards. Perhaps we'll soon see them on Capitol Hill asking for a bail out.

Maxi Finance Questions About Maxi Finance Ripoff
I received a receipt from the post office saying I have a package from a company named Maxi Finance. I did not order anything from this company, I have not even heard of them before. I have not picked up the package. I decided to take a look on the internet to see what I could find out about this company. Reading other reports here, I seen that some of you were threatened to be reported to the credit bureau. Can or have they done that? Even if you don't pick up the package. I think its obvious this is some sort of ripoff. I mean to be sent a package and a bill you never ordered doesnt really give me too high of expectations. Well I just wanted to know if anyone can help me out, on what to do here. Thanks. Laria Roswell, New MexicoU.S.A.

Beneficial Finance
My husband received a phone call yesterday at his place of work (how they got this phone number is beyond me)from a representative at Beneficial Finance. They asked for me by name, stated I had an account, and would not give my husband any further information stating that his name was not on the account. They gave him a toll free number for me to call. When I called the toll free number - I was asked for my account number. Never hearing of this company before in my life, I did not have one - they then asked for my social security number. I said absolutely not!. I told the representative that their company called for me, disturbed my husband at his work place, stated it was about an account I did not have... and I would like to know what information this is based on. Said they called a phone number and had my name.. they should be able to look up the account with that information. She said I was nowhere in her computer, and she could not look it up without my account number or social security. I recently opened a business, and have been dealing with soliciting phone calls left and right. I hope this was not such an attempt... especially upon stating I already had an account with them to my husband! It also scares me that they are asking for my social security number when I call.. they had my name and telephone number.. they called me. I makes me wonder how many people just go ahead and give them their social security number.

If Beneficial Finance owns your mortgage and you refinance for a better rate with another company, beware! I refinanced and had to pay a substancial pre-payment penalty for the entire term. It was not pro-rated as most are. Now I get a statement from Beneficial Finance for a late charge, over and above the pre-payment penalty because their payoff arrived a day late. Beneficial Finance may be the third largest lender, but they will try to suck you dry, when you leave them. They probably make more money from people trying to better themselves by incerting get rich clauses in their conracts, then they do, just collecting interest!

January 16, 2001 The following is a letter that I sent to Household Finance Corporation. They have been beyond reasonable and have done every underminded thing to make someone's life miserable. The letter only hits the tip of the iceberg as to how I was treated. They even had a private investigator calling my home to bully me. When I called HFC for the name and address of the corporate headquarters, I was transferred 4 times and was told they could not give out that information. Since when is such information confidential? Household Finance Corporation CERTIFIED MAIL Executive President 2700 Sanders Road Prospect Springs, IL 60070 Dear Sir/Madam: I am writing this letter to you for many reasons and I will explain them all to you as you read on. I have had a car loan with your company since 1996. For two and a half years of the loan I paid early and on time. I had fallen onto some hard times where I had been temporarily disabled. When I had phoned to look into my disability insurance on the loan, I was told I did not have it. Unfortunately, when I had signed my agreement, I took the word of the salesman that the insurance was included. The salesman also informed me that I would be able to refinance at a lower interest rate after one year, which was also false. I had called the loan company to ask for some help with making some type of arrangement to pay the loan, but I was told there was nothing anyone could do for me. I continued to make payments. I was not on time any longer and sometimes I was just unable to make the payments. HFC made it impossible for me, even with all of my attempts to try to make some kind of arrangement. Times became even harder for me. I was the given a Three month deferral, and in just a few weeks my phone was ringing up to ten times a day if not more, stating that I was late and had better pay. The calls continued from 8 am until 9 pm, all day long. I have struggled through these hard times and tried to work with your company but I was insulted, called a liar, a squelcher, I just didn't want to pay my bill, that they new people like me and I can go on with the insults and disrespect that I have had to subject myself to with your employees. The only thing I got was kicked when I was down. I finally called for a payoff in September of 2001, and was quoted a figure of $884.79. At that time, I requested a final bill to send they money and have never received it. I have made countless phone calls trying to get this from HFC, but have not been successful. As time passes on, my payoff is certainly mounting. I have been more than patient with this request. I have done some researching on HFC through the Better Business Bureau and several other sites available on the internet, and have found countless complaints regarding HFC that were very similar to mine. I am asking you to please have the requested information forwarded to me so that I may pay off this car loan and acquire the title of ownership. Thank you for your immediate attention in this matter.

I borrowed 12,500 in 1995. and I just got rid of the scammers last month after refinancing and combining my first and second mortgage. After examining the report I found numerous finance charges, that were not fair, yes I had a few late payments but thousands of dollars were extorted from me. My payoff was 12,350, they made alot of money off of me, I may have paid for someones vacation or condo. By the way they charged me 350.00on top of my payoff for a foreclosure fee that they thought I needed to pay. This company is making alot of money off of people that dont have the finest credit history. the way the loan was for my son to attend college and was short of money.

For a couple of years now we have had a problem with our local collection agency, PROFESSIONAL FINANCE. Yes we have past debts, most are medical and I stay home with our children and my husband is self employed. I was working for a brief time and had agreed upon payment arrangements and took a payment in one day. I was a little short, $2.75 to be exact and the lady refused payment. I told her it was all I had and she became very hostile with me. I became very upset and left. Since then they have taken out a judgement on us with the courts and at one time lied to me about what my rights were. this was a scare tactic obviously but since I was unaware of the laws I could not argue my point. Because the judgement had already been entered and they had lied it was past the deadline for me to act on our behalf after reading about collection laws. As it is now the judgement is still there and we are refusing to work with them as they have refused more than one payment, garnished wages ( when I was working) and harrassed us horribly. I am in the process of trying to get many of the old debts dropped as they are past 7 years. If anyone has had a bad experience with them please let others know and if you have any advice please let me know. Thank you

Triad Finance Ripped off and repoed, Internet
I am in on the Class-Action Lawsuit. In fact if someone blew this company to h*ll and watched their faces burn off, then I would be there laughing. These people deserve the worse possible that could happen to them.Purchased a vehicle in 2005, paid and struggled for 4 years. Almost had it paid off and got 2 payments behind. They came a repoed this vehicle and added the next payment due BEFORE it was actually due. (due on 1/27, repoed on 1/21).I will never finance a car again through a servicing company like this. I paid over $14,000 and got zero, zippo for my car. That's reason enough to kill people. $14,000 is enough to start a lawsuit against a company.FYI: No note or phone call prior to the Repo, either. Most respectable banks will send you a note in the mail at least.-TC

Mariner Finance Virginia Total Ripoff Internet, Internet
My wife and I purchased furniture from Value City Furniture.The total cost of the furniture was around $1,900.  So they offered us a 3 months interest freeloan. We purchased the furniture in November and didn’t receive any bills orstatements from the company. So I called them and I was told that they haven’tprocessed the loan yet, and that I shouldn’t be worried, once they process theloan I will get a bill.I finally received a call from Mariner Finance on December15 telling me that they have my loan, and that my first payment will be due onDecember 24th, which happens to be a Friday. They told me that they will send me a payment coupon soon.I did not receive a payment coupon until December 30, 2010.I called them on that day to ask them how they would expect me to pay a bill I received after due date, but of course, their office was closed.So I mailed them a $500 check on January 1st that cleared my account on January 6th, 2011. Later that month, my wife mailed them another check in the amount of $700. Then on January 28th, I wrote them another check in the amount of $300. So, yesterday I called them to pay off the remaining balance which was supposed to be $400 or so. And they are telling me that my balance is $580. They have charged me over $100 for making a late payment. And the lady I spoke with was telling me that, “It is an unfortunate situation,but I should be glad they haven’t charged me additional interest, but just for the period of time that I was late on my payment (why would you charge me interest on an interest free loan which we made $1500 in less than two months?). She also told me that I was called on December 15 to be reminded that my first paymentwill be due on December 24, and that they sent me a bill on December 18th,which happens to be a “SATURDAY.”I think this is a total rip-off.  The only reason they called me on the 15 was to cover their a**es, and then sending me a bill after due day. And who would you charge interest on a “Three months interest free (like cash) contract? I called Value City Furniture to ask for a copy of my contract. I will review my contract and willing to take them to court.
