__________________________________

On October 11, 2009, California modified the California Civil Code, Business & Professions Code, and Financial Code to prohibit the upfront payment of fees by homeowners to anyone assisting with loan modifications. The most important provisions of the law are included below.
General Provisions

No person or company – including attorneys and real estate agents – can demand advance payment for providing loan modification services in California. Cal. Civ. Code § 2944.7(a) (2009), Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 10085.6(a) (2009).

Attorneys cannot request or collect a retainer until after the loan modification services promised have been fully performed (even if they are holding the money in a client trust account). Cal. Civ. Code § 2944.7(a)(1).

This ban on upfront payment applies to loan modification agreements entered into on or after October 11, 2009 and stays in effect until January 1, 2013. Cal. Civ. Code § 2944.7(e); Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 6106.3(b), 10085.6(d).

Any homeowner who paid a fee after October 11, 2009 on an agreement entered prior to that date must be given a refund.

    HOME REMEDY CENTER, Attorney Andrew Duff Weiss is the man behind the fraud in both Federal and State courts. Evidence also shows coaching and extorting false testimony from witnesses. He had Joe Persaud setttle a case and sign as the CEO for a Corporation Joe was not working for or an employee of. He used extortion to secure his signature on a settlement which Attorney Weiss then used to defraud Orange County Superior Court and then Federal court. He is teamed with convicted felons to commit all these crimes court records show.

      Hello Robert and thanks for your comments here. I fear that I have been scammed out of four thousand dollars. Are you aware of anyone attempting legal action against these individuals? If so could you put us in touch with them. We are in Florida.

  3. Andrew D. Weiss August 1, 2013 at 11:14 PM Reply

    Mr. McDonal:

    You should conduct some research on Robert Milton Prestwood, III before relying on any information he posts on the Internet. Mr. Prestwood is unhappy that I represent a client that was awarded $94,915.35 in a non-dischargable malicious prosecution judgment against Mr. Prestwood by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California in Moore v. Prestwood case number 8:11-01154-TA. Judgment liens have been filed in two of Pretwood’s lawsuits, Prestwood v. Wells Fargo Bank, Orange County Superior Court case number 30-2011-00522572 and Prestwood v. McAfoose Orange County Superior Court case number 30-2011-00513640 preventing him from recovering any funds in those actions. Prestwood is reportedly penniless and his wife is divorcing him in Murphy v. Prestwood Orange County Superior Court case number 12D007911. I have no connection with Home Remedy Center. Feel free to conduct you own investigation.

    Hello,

    I need your assistance I fear that I’ve also been scammed out of $5000 fees that i was asked to pay up front for loan modification. I’ve contacted the Remedy Group Law Firm several times with no success. I’ve sent several emails without a reply now I’m trying to call all the phone numbers I have with no success of reaching anyone. The lines are constantly busy. I am a widow, a single mother and not working. I am about to lose my home and don’t know what to do. Please can you assist me or point me in a direction to go. I’m in Florida and can’t get to California to see this company.

    Good Afternoon Everyone:

    I hope you can help me. Home Remedy Center contacted me in regards to a loan modification and for this they charged $4,000 up front.

    All seamed above board until the last two months were there has been no correspondence from them and the number they gave me is no longer in use. The mortgage company has been no help. I am now in fear of loosing my home as they have sent a letter of pending foreclosure. What can I do?

    Thank you.

    Well I too have probably been scammed out of close to $4,000.00. I need your assistance please. These fees that I was asked to pay up front for loan modification. I had no difficulty contacting these people until after the fees were paid. Now I’ve contacted the Remedy Group Law Firm several times with minimal success.

    I did received an email reply from a Mike Anthony who represents himself as assistant to the director. He says that I am not entitled to a refund as the “3rd” part of the process is in motion but nothing has been done. I started this process in March and was told that this was a 90 day process. Then in September I was told that they were so overwhelmed with business that they are behind but will expedite the process.

    I received one more reply in October pretty much saying the same thing and nothing since.,. I’ve sent several emails without a reply now I’m trying to call all the phone numbers I have with no success of reaching anyone. The lines are either busy or I get sent to a voice mail which never replies.

    I have filed a complaint with the BBB and they could not get a reply from them either. I am single and have just finished a year long battle with cancer.

    can people be so heartless. I should have known better. Please help!!!.

    Hello everyone,

    I too paid Remedy Center $4,000. which was suppose to sit in account (escrow) until they resolved my loan which is in pre-forclosure. I have tried calling since before Christmas and can not get through. I called and checked on the attorney I was working with a Ryan Cummings. The BBB said they had no complaints on him. My senior loan officer was Dennis Serna and I have a voice message saying he is working on it and will contact me in two weeks. That was 4 months ago. I’ve made payments cause I have no money, no spouse, and no living parents.

    It is my equity line of credit that I am way behind because of a bankruptcy. I did a loan modification, but they could not help me with the equity line. I have all the copies of the money I sent them and really thought I was going to save my house.

    Please can anyone tell me what to do. How can I get my money back, take them to court, or what!!! Devastated in Florida.

    Fraud Protection in Florida

    On October 1, 2008, the Florida Legislature enacted the Florida Foreclosure Fraud Protection Act. This law prohibits loan modification companies from receiving upfront payments for loan modification services that may never be rendered. This law also mandates that homeowners must receive specific written disclosures informing them of their rights and a “cooling off” period.

    The new law, Fla. Stat. Sec. 501.1377, was intended to protect the consumer, but it may ultimately hurt the very people it meant to protect. Some bad apples created a negative perception of the loan modification industry, which is unfair. Reputable loan modification companies have been providing a very valuable and much needed service to the consumer − loans are being modified at very favorable terms, which include interest rate and sometimes principal rate reductions.

    By conducting audits of the loan in question and detecting errors or insufficient disclosures, loan modification companies are very effective in exerting pressure on financial institutions to modify loans or face the consequences of those violations. Banks can sometimes be difficult to reach, which requires persistent staff from these loan modification companies to maintain communication with them. All of these efforts result in significant overhead, which loan modification companies must front. By creating a law, which makes it illegal for a loan modification company to receive an upfront payment until the benefit is obtained; loan modification companies have to stay afloat until the bank decides to resolve a claim.

    Under this present scheme, banks are fully aware of the financial strain placed on the loan modification companies and, thus, have no incentive to resolve a modification expeditiously. Secondly, once the loan modification company obtains the benefit, there is less of an incentive for the consumer to pay the fee to the loan modification company.

    I posted my complaint on http://www.Ripoffreport.com and is posting it here.

    In June 2013, my wife and I signed an agreement with Home Remedy to represent us for a home loan modification. We aid $3995.00 over several payments by check to do this.

    They made a promise that they could get the lender to agree to a loan mod. We had previously gotten a HAMP modification and were told by Remedy Center folk that the HAMP made no difference and they could get us another loan mod. It turns out the HAMP prevented any further loan modification because our payments were current.

    On September 3, 2013 we received a letter saying they had completed the third and final phase. They never followed through on their contractual agreement signed on June 23, 2013.

    Scammed here also out of $3,995.00 between May 2013 and July 2013. I provided them the information that was requested, sent them the 3 checks – just like everyone else who has posted comments on this site. As it stands currently: Out of the $3,995 bucks, ding on my credit report for missing a payment, found out that the $3,995.00 is not tax deductable (which they noted it was). I did file a complaint with BBB in August 2013 – did not receive any communications from them.
