    I am in the state of Nevada. We are the hardest hit state for foreclosures. It is due to the economy and the unemployment rate that is over 14%. Anyway, I paid $3,000 to Coleman Law Associates to modify my loan. After months and all the paperwork they requested, I found out that they never contacted my lender. Guess who is losing their home?? ME! I am so upside down and disgusted that it doesn’t even matter anymore. They can have this house, the neighborhood has gone down anyway.

    Well, there are scams all over, like McDonalds claims to sell hamburgers – thats debatable – There are also good things, like TGIF’s hamburgers are good. Point is simple, do your due diligence and if its a win-win-win, then go for it.

    I get the 90% (probly higher) from the fact that they were in or near foreclosure before calling the “scammers” in the firast place. They could not afford the home they agreed to purchase. Besides it doesn’t really matter. Anyone dumb enough to fall for something like this deserves to be taken. They are too dumb to compete in the world and ultimately will be bred out of the system. In the grand scheme of things no one gives a crap about the losers. It’s the way it should be.

    Actually, the point of the video is that the scams are not legal. I don’t know where you get your 90% statistic from (probably your imagination), but in any event, it is not necessary to be scammed by a predator to preserve one’s credit. If a person is going to “lose” his home, better to sell it at or near fair market value and recover some, most, or all of the equity than forfeit the entire value in a scam.

    Bucktooth, when you finally move out of your mother’s basement some day, why don’t you tell me how many pages of the fine print you read. Then two weeks later when you’re finished, you can try to explain to me what it all meant.

    Very informative video. I took some notes on the video and how it was done. I gave it 5 stars. Check out our vids and tell me what you think? We have some good stuff also.

    If you did not read the fine print, it is your fault. Nobody put a gun to your head to sign. Take responsibility for your actions.
  11. oicufn812 says:
    Most of these “scams” are legal. Though they may seem predatory, it is a survival of the fittest world. 90% of the alleged “victims” would have lost their homes one way or another. The so-called predators DO help in most cases by keeping a foreclosure off the credit rating of the client.
