CMI Enterprises Informative - FHA refund recovery scam
SAGINAW, MICHIGAN -- I was contacted by telephone by a company called GMI Incorporated, based(they said) in Portland Oregon.
They called themselves a 3rd party recovery program.
The idea was to contact homeowners who had paid off their FHA loans and inform them that they had money coming back on their loans.
All I had to do was to send CMI check for $69 dollars and they would send out a computer generated list of people to contact.
For every contact I successfully made, the U.S GOVERNMENT would send ME a check for between $400 and $800 dollars.
Pretty sweet eh?
I called the number I got when I spoke to their operator and of course I got the same sales pitch repeated to me before..
The number is unlisted on line but for what it's worth it is 971-285-3130 in Portland, Oregon..
I have forwarded this information to the local FBI office and await their call back in order to satisfy my curiosity if this is a new scam or an old racket with a new name..
For all you folks that are new to this site, remember, if you have to pay someone for the opportunity to make a buck, it's almost always a scam...
