Scammed
Posted by Tanequa on 09/13/2009
I paid Foreclosure Defense Law Center to modify my mortgage nad they did nothing. I paid them $2,000.00 with the promise that they would modify my loan or reimburse my money. I have been calling them for 2 months and no one will return my calls. I am now in danger of loosing my home.

Yeah, a lot of those type of places are scams. Where did you find them? Did they have a hand painted sign up on the highway (like a lot of them do here) or did you get their flyer in the mail? Contact your State's Attorney's office and file a complaint.

They are operating under a few different names: Oceanview Investment Services, Corp. Oceanview Financial Services, Corp. Financial Powerhouse Services, Inc.

The attorney general of Florida has an investigation currently underway. Go to http://www.myfloridalegal.com/ and enter Oceanview Investments in the search for more details.

These people are about the lowest you can get, taking advantage of people's desperate situations for their own personal gain.

Attorney General, that's what I meant.

Dear passing by i checked out the florida states attorneys office website and checked on oceanview and there is NO active investigation. as for foreclosure defense law center i also checked them out and found nothing on them and the attorney that owns it has been a fl lawyer for awhile. Do your research

Scam?
Posted by Jojojo on 01/04/2010
FLORIDA -- The Foreclosure Defense Law Center in Florida seems to be a scam. They received a check from me about 6 weeks ago to help me in my home foreclosure. About a week after cashing it they called and said they could not help even after reviewing my file and said they could and I was a prime candidate. Well they said they would send back the money the first time I talked with them. The second time I talked with them they said the same. It will go out today. I have been calling sense and they never return my calls. the operator says they will get back to me and never do. I will continue to call everyday until I get my money back. Its toll free!

I would check local before I use these nobs. Talk about low, To take advantage of someone in this position is inexcusable.

How much did you send them if you do not mind me asking?
Posted by PepperElf on 2010-01-04:
have you contacted the FTC and the police yet?
can't hurt to press charges if you can


but i agree - i think a REAL financial solution company would have a free consultation, and then they'd do it in person in an office.

without hearing anything else about this company, the thought that they'd ask you to send them money and THEN they'd review your issue...

it sounds more like they're trying to take advantage of your situation & the fact that you're worried.

Funny (not funny, haha) thing is, they list on their website ways to avoid scams.

Red Flags



If you’re looking for foreclosure prevention help, avoid any business that:
guarantees to stop the foreclosure process – no matter what your circumstances
instructs you not to contact your lender, lawyer, or credit or housing counselor
collects a fee before providing you with any services
accepts payment only by cashier’s check or wire transfer
encourages you to lease your home so you can buy it back over time
tells you to make your mortgage payments directly to it, rather than your lender
tells you to transfer your property deed or title to it
offers to buy your house for cash at a fixed price that is not set by the housing market at the time of sale
offers to fill out paperwork for you
pressures you to sign paperwork you haven’t had a chance to read thoroughly or that you don’t understand.
If you’re having trouble paying your mortgage or you have gotten a foreclosure notice, contact your lender immediately.

If they, too, are scamming people... *shakes head*

Consider contacting the office of the Attorney General in Florida. This might be something they would take an interest in.
