Homecomings Funding Uses Deceptive Practices to Obtain Mortgage Refinance Clients

I received another one of Homecomings Funding's deceptive phone calls a few days ago (be sure to also read my first article about this sleazy mortgage company).  This last call was almost the exact same wording as the first message - clearly Homecomings gives their employees a script to make these calls.  To me, that means it's the company, not just a bad employee, that is being deceitful.  Although I do NOT have a mortgage with Homecomings, here is the message I received:

"Hello, my name is George Parker and I work with Homecomings, and I'm calling in regards to your last mortgage payment.  We need you to give us a call here at 888-202-.... Thank you so much and we look forward to your call."

I didn't even bother to return the 2nd call since I knew they were just trying to trick me into calling so they could talk me into refinancing my house.  It doesn't seem to matter to this company that:

  1. They are violationg the Do Not Call List
  2. They are being sleazy, deceptive and unethical
  3. I've asked them to take me off their list already - just over a month ago

So whether you're buying a house, land, commercial property or just refinancing your current mortgage, DON'T TRUST HOMECOMINGS!

So can you tell that Homecomings has completely annoyed me with these phone calls?! I guess I just don't like companies who assume I'm stupid and attempt to profit from it!

Hi John,

The best way to acquire the info you want would be to contact a title company that serves Cochise County, AZ. There will be a fee but it's probably well worth it, especially if you're out of state or not currently in Cochise County. If you're looking to do the research yourself, you should start by contacting the Cochise County Recorder:

They don't seem to have their records available online though, so you may have to physically visit their office to get the information you want.

Hope this helps. Thanks for stopping by BlogArizona.com!
