Hi, Debbie, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service,
1. Did they disclose to you that the company buying your house was a company owned by the same person who owned the real estate company selling your house ?
2. Is the selling price comparable with its fair market value, or what you would have received if it were sold to an unrelated third party ?
1. If the company buying your house is owned by the same person that owns the real estate company, there would be a conflict of interest and if you signed a waiver, that probably took care of the conflict of interest;
2. If this is a short sale, and you are trying to get out of the sale, tell your lender that you just found out that the facts that you stated here, and tell them not to approve the sale because you believe that you can get a better price from an unrelated third party. Then you can deal with another real estate company to sell your property.

Anybody can do business in the form of a company without being a corporation.
Is your information about the EIN from the Internal Revenue Service ?
If not, how do you know that it is fake ?
If you tell me what your goal is, i.e., what you wish to accomplish, I might be able to assist you,
You should tell your lender and tell the lender to reject the sale or rescind its approval if it has already given its approval, then you would not have to go through with the sale,
I have no information whatsoever to go on and, therefore, cannot say if this company was engaged in any fraud.
If you received as much for the property as you would have received from another buyer, and you are not related to the real estate company, I think you might be worried over nothing,
