I am checking on Retention Law in California and I am not finding that name. Do you have a website link?



The up front fee they are charging concerns me

The Attorney General has posted information on Loan modification scams.

Customer:

LeslieEsq :

The law prohibits fees until services are performed.


And advises not to stop making mortgage payments.

Customer:

LeslieEsq :

The law prohibits fees until services are performed.

LeslieEsq :

LeslieEsq :

The up front fees is a red flag.

LeslieEsq :

You should continue making payments. I am seeing complaints for this company.

LeslieEsq :

The bank can foreclose while you are applying for any modification program.

LeslieEsq :

Did I lose you?

Customer:

the bank isn't foreclosing on me they just won't refi my loan 2 help me out i just dont no what to do payment to high

LeslieEsq :

Retention law is not showing up as a registered corporation.

Customer:

have they been ripping people off

LeslieEsq :



There are numerous complaints. The best thing for you to do is contact the Attorney General and ask them if there are issues with the company.

Customer:

and should i not do this and is there any way i can force my bank to refi my loan. retention law they said i qualify for a program for the modifacation

LeslieEsq :

There is no way to force a lender to provide a loan modification.

Customer:

they told me thats what they do im confused

Customer:

where can i see the reports on them

LeslieEsq :

This is a link for the Attorney General contact information. http://oag.ca.gov/contact The attorney general can provide with reports.

LeslieEsq :

You asked if they are a scam, and I am telling you that the Attorney General for the State of California is saying that paying up front fees is illegal and do not stop paying your mortgage.

LeslieEsq :

I know that this is difficult and that they seem to be able to help, however, I do not want you to lose $4,000 to a scam'

Customer:

Customer:
