No Bailout Help For OCWEN Customers

Anonymous's picture
Filed Under: 

Dear President Barack Obama:

I pay my taxes. I pay my mortgage. I am triple upside down on my note. My house is now 200% undervalued. I do not qualify for any bailout programs to help homeowners stay in their home. I live in an OLD house (fixer-upper) that needs plumbing, electrical, and flooring just to live in but cannot afford to make any improvements. I have had twp loan modifications but no reduction in principal. The cherry on top is that LITTON sold my loan to OCWEN who immediately increased my monthly payment since taking over my loan. I can not afford the monthly mortgage and am MAD AS HELL I do not "qualify" for a loan modification. I was told that OCWEN doesn't "do principal reductions" they only process foreclosures.

I have always tried to do the right thing. Now I'm ready to walk away and let my neighborhood go to hell. Who is there for me when I am paying for bailouts for the banks, for the bad loan, and NOBODY is helping me?

You can have my house. I did my best to hang on. I did my best to help the California economy reverse the downward spiral and to keep my neighborhood from going to hell. The house next door recently sold for less than $100k. I owe almost $300k. I will borrow from my family to get into another house that is already completely remodeled for 1/3 of the cost of my house which most people would not live in.

OCWEN is not helping its customers stay in their homes. The only people I spoke to at OCWEN were citizens of India not the US. They are not accepting any short sales. They are only in business to process foreclosing.

There are websites dedicated to fighting OCWEN. We need YOUR help.

The Better Business Bureau is not helping. Will you? I voted for you. I plan to again. But I'm getting screwed coming and going here.

Thank you!

JoAnna

Ocwen has taken advantage of my husband every since they acquired the loan. He modified in 2010, only to end up with a balloon payment in the end, as well as Ocwen tacked on additional reserves (an additional $300 extra) a month for property taxes, claiming it's there just in case we get behind! They were the ones paying the taxes out of our payment. Now we are behind because Ocwen arbitrarily changed the terms of the agreement & we couldn't afford the extra amount we never agreed to with their in-house modification. They refuse to give us a government modification even though a HUD counselor says we qualify for it! How can a lender get away with such predatory practices?! Something needs to be done about these thieves who play around with the securitized loans, conduct in robo-signing & the such. I don't think Ocwen even knows who the true, legitimate lender is on our home loan. It's time to call the media and file lawsuits!!

Ocwen started taking funds for ins escrow, I've always paid my Ins myself. Asked in July and again in Aug why my bill appeared that I've been Paying almost $200.00 more each month than I have ever had to pay. An the modification section showed they modified loan to $98. Less than my original statements, so on paper it "appeared" they were saving us almost $300.00 a month. So like I said Spoke to
Relation ship manager, 7/14 and 8/14, about this and the answer I got was, "that's nothing don't pay any attention to that, why are you worried about that". 9/14 I asked again same answer only it came with an attitude. So turns out this was escrow for ins I already was paying myself. R/M told me to have certificate of proof sent to their Ins dept, did. That the last week of Sept and on Oct 10, 14 they paid my ins anyhow after I also backed out of the Trial Mod. Now they are using that, and I am behind this month only 24 days, against me saying I am 84 days behind. "F" them Ins co sending them a refund check and borrowing g the rest to get
The Mortgage Nazis off our backs.

Hello Mr President? Why are these obvious Predatory Lenders still allowed to conduct Business here in the states? It appears obvious at least to me that neither you, the Atty Gen or the Court care! My Flag now Flies upside down, for my Brother and Sister in this struggle who have no alternative to pay for Ocwen's shady practices!!!! "So Much for Change"!!!

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET A LOAN MODIFICATION AND OCWEN KEEPS SENDING THE PAPERWORK 30 DAYS AFTER THE FACT SO I KEEP GETTING REJECTED FOR THE LOANS. IN FACT THE FIRST TIME I WAS REJECTED FOR THE HAMP THEY(INDIA) DETERMINED I DID NOT LIVE AT THE PROPERTY. I DO LIVE ON MY PROPERTY AND NO WHERE ELSE. I TOO AM SICK AND TIRED OF CALLING INDIA. I AM BORN AND RAISED IN THE USA AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW THE HELL MY MORTGAGE WENT TO A COMPANY THAT THE ONLY PEOPLE I CAN SPEAK WITH ARE FROM INDIA. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE MY HOME BUT UNLESS SOMEONE CAN TAKE SOME ACTION AGAINST OCWEN I JUST MAY LOSE IT.

Ocwen uses Loan mods to bait and switch, they want to forclose your house for a affiliated company that handles rental properties. I was in a trial Mod numbers kept changing. Oh yeah it's a C.Y.A world so bearing that in mind " this is my express opinion, based on my own experiences from the mountains of info I have read on the net"...
Spoke to different lawyers "they"recommended to not to lock in the Mod and get out of it. also file complaint with State Atty Gen Office! Like that's gonna do any good, it's all slanted in Ocwen's favor, they get caught doing something wrong, they get a slap on the wrist like in New York State. They were ordered by the court to Hire. Monitor to make sure they followed the rules! Key part? they hire, how about an independent court appointed monitor? It's in the bag for them...

We have been with Ocwen for a couple of months and have figured out that they are not trying to help us but try to make us loose our house. We have tried to call for a modification since I am now single and have 8 living in the house that are in a financial stump. We have finally caught of with the late fees that they have charged us but now even though we are not late they call every day to say we are behind and that we need to pay now.They keep sending reminders saying they have not recieved our payment but on the website it shows our payment was received and processed on the same time. Please do something to help out all of Ocwen's customers because if you can't help many of families could loose their homes with no where else to go.

Sincerly,

Folks, I am in a similar situation with Ocwen. You have to do your homework and by that I mean RESEARCH YOUR MORTGAGE docs that are located at your county clerk's office. Write a letter requesting the original Note to your home and you will most likely discover that Ocwen does not have it. Since they do not, TECHNICALLY they have no legal right (check the laws of governing your state regarding the original Note) to foreclose on your property. They are not the Note Holder and unless they have proof that they can act on behalf of the holder of your mortgage...dispute it and GO TO COURT!!. If your mortgage was recorded with the "MERS"
which stands for mortgage electronic registration system, chances are you can fight to stay in your home for a very long time.

"The Nurse"... good point, definitely look at your documents to see if OCWEN has any legal rights.I just wanted to point out that you SHOULD be able to see and download your documents from the OCWEN website - https://www.ocwencustomers.com and under the main menu, go to Loan Documents, there you should see your documents. Once you open them, you should be able to download and save them.

My loan was sold to Ocwen by Morgan Stanley. From the start they applied my last payment to Morgan Stanley directly principal, claim it can't be fixed and the following payments since reflect as late 30 days. I've read story after story about how this company forces people into a late status only to foreclose on them. Based on public records, I guess they paid only about 5% the value of my note. Obviously they stand to profit huge gains if they accomplish their evil. Please help stop this company. I've never been so afraid. I'm convinced they really are "that bad". Please stop them!

I applied for a modification after reading about the June 1, 2012 revisions. The guy I spoke with (Of course, in India, Paul Praveen) told me because of the revisions i would probably get qualified. I submitted all documentation (2 or 3 times) and received a website (Ocwen) that i had been approved. For the next six weeks I thought i had been approved for a Hamp loan. Then my husband got involved when we received a one page agreement (very vague). We contacted a lawyer which advised us we should ask for a contract or at least an amortization report. You have to make appts with these people from India. We did, They refused the amortization schedule but did tell us there would be a $37,000 balloon payment plus if we sold the house we would have to give them 25% of the sale. Morons. I am 57 and no moron. I keep dates of calls, notes, who I spoke with, etc. I contacted my congressman and today the Department of Justice. The funny (ha ha) thing is that i was approved for their personal loan modifiction and then denied later for a Hamp. They do not date their letters. They are scammers and i think are predators of people like my and my husband. We have NEVER been in a financial situation until the economy breakdown and then my husband was diagnosed with ocular migraines. He is saving lives by not working is profession (an independent truck driver). We have worked our entire lives and it comes to our golden years looking like this. Obama, your plan is not working, but not your fault, it is the scandalous ways that these companies are taking advantage of the good you did to help people like us. Call me, I will be your "joe the plummer" to show the the fradulent, greedy and scaming ways they are applying your programs. I am not shy. I do not take advantage of programs are available. Our outgoing expenses exceed our income by about $2,000. I finally got a prn job after two years. I got job training thru WIA and was tenantious enough to keep plugging away and of course, my faith and prayer sustained me. I am broken, I used to be in a position where I could loan money to people to needed it. I am one of twelve kids and helped out a lot of them. I am willing to be your spokesperson regardless of the humulilation and embarrassment to get your plan back into place and get you re elected. I believe in paying what i owe but I am going thru a humbling experience which I am the one now needing help. My email is Shift3334@aol.com Contact me, I will help you show part of th reason your plan is not helping. It is the greedy companies such as Ocwen taking advantage of your bail out money. Help me Mr. President, I will even join you for a beer.

Hector "The Frustrated Homeowner"'s picture

I, like many of you, am in the same boat and OCWEN is just not making it any easier or providing any real help in the situation. I live in Ca and have a loan balance of about $285K, value is somewhere around $180K. I took this loan in 2005 with a company which later sold the loan to JP Morgan Chase., then bundled up and sold as a package to who knows who, I can't even get that answer. It was initially being serviced by Litton loan, then transferred to OCWEN. When I signed the loan, the deed of trust says “Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Uniform instrument” at the bottom of each page, which leads me to believe that it was a Fannie/Freedie loan, which is a fundamental requirement for the HARP program. When I've asked OCWEN about it, they just tell me that the loan is not a Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac loan and that I do not qualify for it, but can't tell me why it isn't a Fannie/Freddie loan any longer.
Have any of you seen similar events with your loans? Have you been able to find out why it is not longer a Freddie/Fannie Loan? Why did it change? They also tell me that I don't qualify for the HAMP programs due to my financials, although I've sent complete applications three times and have been denied each time, each showing that I should qualify. Furthermore, they tell me that I can't reapply for the HAMP programs because it has been denied three times. SO the only thing they will offer is an "in house modification" with a large balloon payment on it.
On a monthly basis it would help some, but not enough to make it worth it, especially considering the balloon at the end.
I also have reached out to them and every time I do I end up speaking with someone of Indian descent, even if I ask for a manager, which is like pulling teeth to get one on the phone, they are also Indian and difficult to communicate with or to understand. Like with most call centers, they have scripted responses and not able to provide any valuable information or assistance. Doesn't anyone hiring Americans that you can have a conversation with? We are all trying to live the "American dream" and own our own homes, but is extremely difficult to do with the state of the economy and housing market, then it's compounded with having to deal with OCWEN.
OCWEN is such a nightmare company to deal with.

Mr. President, if you even know about these letters of frustration that we have all been writing to you, PLEASE do something. These companies find loopholes or any possible way to NOT have to help their customers. We keep getting doors slammed in our faces at every attempt to find help, the last door being slammed is when we're all being kicked out or walk away on our own free will due to the lack of help we've been able to receive.

They did almost the same thing to me.... and... they took my house. They gave me an amount to pay and I paid it for 6 months then they told me the payment they sent me was wrong and wanted more $$$ I didn't have it all at one time and they told me there was nothing they could do to help me and I was evicted from the home I'd lived in and paid on for 10 years.

I really appreciate the job that you are doing for this country, of which some people just can't understand that taking over where someone else has left off is'nt easy,especially when that person did such a banged up job you have to figure out the head from the tail.Believe me it's hard work trying too hold down two and three jobs and at the same time trying to save face at the same time,it is'nt easy.O'kay that said and done I have a question concerning TAXES. Why is it so hard for the poor and down out people who try and ammend (money that's mine!) their taxes from the government to be told YOUR LOST OUR GAIN! when in fact it's my money and I want it now! So I past the due date too file ,I have a very busy schedule and I can't afford a personal tax person to keep me informed.But don't owe the goverment , they will and do get theirs no matter how long it takes them,and believe me I'm a victim who can't afford to WRITE IT OFF,( if I were rich!) as the well to do can.So please answer this question for me I sure could use that money right about now. Thanks and keep up the good work!!

Just read online and in the Wall Street Journal that Ocwen stock has increased 249 percent...they've paid off litigants for their shady practices and yet continue their dirty business, probably for their stockholders. I'm in the same boat as all of you and have just been 'denied' a modifcation for documents not submitted, though i submitted them three times. It's so annoying. Does anyone know if President Obama has read these letters? Apparently there is some "concern' by government agencies about Ocwen's "abuse" of their own customers...and the FTC is trying to block Ocwen's acquisition of yet another big company who "services" loans but I don't know if anyone will do anything in time to stop all of us from losing our homes...heck maybe we should take our loan payments and invest in ocwen instead since this appears to be the only way to achieve anything of worth from this worthless company...just kidding...it will be a cold day in hell before ocwen gets another red cent from me. Perhaps we should all just refuse to ever borrow money or use a credit card ever again until someone checks these people...what would the banks do then? President Obama, please help us!

I have read the following post about Ocwen and I am so disgusted right now. I have tried to make payments and they refuse them. I am 2 payments behind due to illnesses and trying desperately to catch them up. I bought this home trying to provide a safe place for my grandchildren to live but I feel like Ocwen is invading my home. When I call to attempt to make a payment all I ever speak with are Indians that all they can say is I am sorry I can not help you or that they understand. THEY DO MOT UNDERSTAND AT ALL!!!!! I am at my wit end and have no idea what to do or to expect. I am so afraid that one morning we will wake up with the deputies there to throw us out. I am living in fear in my own home. Please help me keep my family safe an don't let them take my home.

I did a loan modification with them and they gave me a payment amount... I paid that amount for 6 months and then got a call saying they had given me the wrong amount and wanted me to send an additional $2500 immediately.... needless to say they wouldn't work with me. I tried to short sell the house and they wouldn't allow that either. They ended up taking my house from me. Why is there no help for us? What can we do?

I am reading all these letters and I already knew about there scams because I have been dealing with them since Litton sold my loan to them. I am unemployed but my family has been helping me make the payments. My Grandmother sends them in on time every month. They keep saying we are behind, but we are not. We did not put in for a loan modification yet but they have sent papers saying we requested them. After reading these letters I don't think I will send them in. There has got to be a way to get an HONEST loan modification. If anyone can help please let us know. And President Obama, I voted for you both times because I thought you were concerned for the poor and middle class people of America. You are the President ! If you can't squash dishonest companies like this what is the point of having a government ? Aren't you here to protect people ? I mean no disrespect in any way but people are crying out for help from this company that is preying on people. My house is just about all I have, please help me.

My loan has been foreclosed on everything I bought my house in 2004 my payments started at 725 and I was always told that when I bought the house that my rate wasn't a fixed rate but I could always change and get refinanced after a few years but my second year my payment went from 700 to 1000. So I get behind and they put me on a loan modification that was a joke all it did was make you further behind in your payments before it was all said and done I was paying 1300 dollar in payments and everytime you modify you get deeper in debt I had to eventually let the house go. Now I see that they have come to an agreement for a settlement from Obama Gmac,Countrywide, and three other big mortgage companies but what about Ocwen customers that went through situations just as bad. I've already lost my house but I wish that Ocwen customers could some kind of acknowledgement of what we went through.

I am in the same boat as everyone and no need to repeat all of the same details. My question to you is once they started the process and you got a letter stating the same, how long before you actually had to move out,. I have quit making payments and have been told that the foreclosure process has started. I have no intention of keeping this house but just curious on how fast they complete the steps.

Mr President, if you or your associates read these emails, are you happy that this scamming company in India is literally buying the property in USA and jerking the land out from under your tax paying citizens?

We fell three months back on our mortgage and when we tried to make one payment they refused us. After submitting and re-submitting paper work for almost six months they told us we didn't qualify for the HAMP program because they were not aware that we did not reside in the property. It was clearly disclosed in the hardship letter. We have been trying to get an in-house modification but each time we make appointment in hopes of getting an answer they tell us they need more time. March of 2013 will be a year since we have been trying to get something done. After reading all of the post it is apparent that they really do want us to lose our property. When I ask them what happens if we can't afford the payments after all these months and the answer was we will be able to help you. I don't understand all of this.

How is this helping if I will never own my house probably won't be able to afford it when I'm an old fart and will get kicked out when I can't make the balloon payment. Unless by then the elderly will be ground up for dog food so won't need a home.

I am in the same situation as most of the people on this site and there seems to be no assistance from anyone to fight against OCWEN. I have even had Spring Board try to help me but to no avail. They said I didn't not qualify for HAMP or the in-house modification. According to the counselor at Spring Board I do qualify. We have done a three-way conference with OCWEN and their relationship manager said that the deicision was made and there was nothing could be done. We requested documents to see who the lender was and it said private investors and WMC. Which is odd because WMC and Litton was on the original loan which was sold to OCWEN. I looked at my loan documents online and everything shows Litton and WMC.

I'm in the same sinking boat as all of you. Just got off phone with my relationship manager in India. Nothing more than a puppet trained to answer no to every question I asked. Americans are losing their homes and Ocwen will not do anything to help. I have tried the Hope line. They spoke with Ocwen on my behalf and still the answer is no. When is the government going to step in and help us? The government has turned their back on the middle class working Americans.

I have been reading all the comments about OCWEN and it does sound encouraging. I am currently trying to bet a modification with OCWEN because fail behind in my mortgage. I didn't qualify for the HAMP nor the in-house modifcation. In the process OCWEN has given me the run around. I've made appointments and on the appointed time and date they did not call me but they annotated in their records that they did which is untrue. I contacted HOPE for assistance and they tried to talk to them and informed that I did qualify for in-house modifcation. The counselor and I did a conference call with the relationship manager. The counselor asked them why didn't I quailify and who was my lender. They were very vague and told me that the decision was made and that I could not get a modifcation. I received a letter on the lender and it listed private investor and WMC. I searched MERS and it shows the lender as Bank of New York Mellon. Any advice on how to deal with OCWEN.

I have dealt with Ocwen for over 10 years. They are the most bulletproof untouchable loan servicing company out there. The fact is that most banks sell the mortgages to companies like ocwen and they spiral out of control. They damage your credit by falsifying documents and reporting to the credit agencies false information. DO NOT agree to loan modification with them: they will document you as being late the whole time and no other lender will look at you once your credit is so far damaged. I have contacted the PA department of banking, alledged watchdogs for the consumer, but they are also impotent. Apparently this company has some strong hold on the banking business because they defy logic and spew nothing but lies in the name of profit. The customer service is a joke with absolutely NO ENGLISH SPEAKING agents and they are told to say only what their employer tells them to say. It is a disgrace this kind of business can exist in American society...it makes me wonder if the government did the right thing by eradicating the MAFIA! This si the lowest form of banking...steer clear at all costs

I have also been riped off by ocwen do not fall for their loan modification pograms they report your credit as being bad during the trial period stating you are not making the payments look at the fine line it states we will report to the credit agency as you are default on your loan durning the trial period that ruining your credit completely PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY IT IS WRITTEN IN THERE AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT A FORBEARANCE BECAUSE NOT ONLY IS YOUR CREDIT RUINED you are also responsible for the extra money you thought you were saving at the end of the 3 months exp: they give you a payment for 350 for 3 months your original loan is 600 so you pay 1050 for three months and at the end they tell you y dont qualify and they want 750 plus 2500 in fees and a ballon payment of 20000 DO NOT AGREE TO ANYTHING MY ADVISE IS TO GET AN AMERICAN MORTAGAGE COMPANYB OR BANK WHO YOU HAVE BEEN WITH FOR YRS GOOOOOOOD LLLUUUUCCCKKK THEY ARE LYING THIEFS

I was transferred over to these Guys,on last month.They didn't have my records,when i called to make a payment. Now,they are telling me that I have to fax over my Bank Statements and Western Union Confrimation Numbers.So,it's my fault,that they did not get all records transferred over to them.By reading all of these comments,I can see where I'am headed. This does not look good!

I am in the same situation as most of the people on this site. I did not qualify for HAMP but they said I qualifyed for in-house modification on a phone interview that would reduce my principal balance to current market value and reduced my interest rate from 8% down to 2% but the only problem with that is my payments doubled from paying 700.00 a month to 1400.00 a month if I am having trouble paying 700.00 a month and is why I need help to start with, how in the world do they think I can pay 1400.00 a month we have lived in this home for 12 years only owe 78,000.00 left, I refused the modification because it only brought it down to 68,000.00 and I can't pay those monthly payments of 1400.00 and they keep sending me certified letters that they charge me for and sending people out to take pictures of the house every 3 months are so and charge me 300.00 every time till I am getting so far behind I can not get caught up. And as part of this modification they also wanted 25% of the property if I sold it or if the value increased. Something is not right with this company. Ocwen is the worst of cheats and something needs to be done. Good luck to all who have them as there mortgage company.
