Unearned Legal Fees Attatched to Foreclosure Costs
Posted by truthinlending on 2007-07-02
NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- If you are in the middle of a foreclosure and Harmon Law office out of Newton,MA is handling it BEWARE. They tack on costs for Appraisals ( which have not been performed), Foreclosure Fees Projected Costs and Advanced all of which HAVE NOT BEEN EARNED. This is against the law according to the FDCPA and a class action suit decision in the US District Court of MA ( Civil case # 03-cv-10932-RGS). But they haven't stopped their practicies. I just signed a forebearance agreement in order to stop the foreclosure on my house, they had delayed the processing so my back was against the wall and I signed the agreement with over $11,000.00 of legal fees that I have to pay of which only 2000.00 were identified as incurred!!! I am sure that I am not the only one in this predicament and I would like some input regarding others experience. I have contacted the Federal Trade Commission and am filing a complaint with the Attorney General in MA & NH. If you are or have experienced HARMON LAW doing what they do best, please provide feedback. And just to let you know that they also own their own auction services, doesn't that seem like a conflict of interest?

MASSACHUSETTS -- Letter from Atty @ Harmon's stated my home was in pre-foreclosure; then the cards & letters started coming in from every outside scam thug who wanted to help out. What in the world was Harmon's office thinking; they didn't even investigate before threatening! How in the world could this scum bag think that he's going to get my rear out of my estate by saying I'm in default on an old Fleet HELOC now "BofA" when I have documented evidence that My payments weren't posted properly and I have cancelled checks and this jackdog thinks he knows everything? Give me a break.
This is my first time dealing with such a bozo and the more time I spend researching the issue, the more ammunition I gain for a whopper of a suit(s) to make his office and BofA look like a couple of real donkeys.
