I refinanced through Lend America, and everything went through the closing just fine. However, they never paid off the original mortgage that was being refinanced. Now we are in a real mess. We have the original lender trying to collect on the outstanding debt, plus the new servicing company is trying to collect as well. They are a real big fraud. Take it from my first hand experience DO NOT USE LEND AMERICA. Find a legimate company to do business with.

Lend America is one of the largest mortgage companies in the country, helping hundeds and hundreds of families every month purchase and refinance homes. When doing a huge volume of business there will be an occasional problem or issue, many of which are beyond our control due to the nature of our business and outside vendors, but for every complaint, I can show you hundreds of thank you letters from grateful individuals. If anyone has a legitimate problem or complaint I would like the opportunity help resolve it. Please contact me directly at (888) 536-3001 x5733 or email mprimeau@lendamerica.com

The real owner of the company is Michael Ashley. The reason why he cannot be CEO is because he was arrested and cannot run the compnay legally. His father, which owned the original company, we sent away for 4 years for fraud under Ideal Mortgage Bankes. So, to keep the company going, Primeau is the president only in name and has nothing to do with the day to day operations. That is why you only see Michael Ashley on the commercials. Stay away. Loans never funds....

out of curiosity, what is the new servicing company? I think my current servicing company and Lend America are affiliated somehow because my servicing company is pushing me to refi with Lend America for the H4H program --- I just have a feeling that they are affiliated and will get a kick back

Predatory lending at its finest! Make yourself crazy to close 5 deals a month to make 5K and the company makes 50K on 5, 100K dollar loans.... How you like that? Michael Ashley is the owner of the company. Uniondale is right.

I was actually trying to find their info to work for them. They sound just like all the other now non-existent companies i used to work for. FFF in Long Island did the same thing to me when I first started in the business. I closed 9 yeah 9 loans in one month and got less than 4000 dollars. In shock I quit when I saw how much they made (even though I was new i am still too embarassed to say how much they made) and Candice the proceesor made sure we all paid for the clients flood certs out of commission until someone realized and complained, and they also took .5bps with the argument that due to the volume they gave a certain bank that money was for the house.
They worked subprime over and now they are after seniors with Reverse Mortgages. HELP, Obama Bush, anybody!!!!!
I cant find an honest company that has the clients interest at heart.
The worst part is that the purchase of a home is the single most important purchase of ones life and all these companies literally drag uneducated untrained high school kids to handle peoples finance so that no one will know their little secrets and the "loan officers" aint got a clue!!!!. Go figure.

I work at Lend America and it is a great company. Most of the people complaining just couldn't make it there. The biz. has always been a commission based biz. so anyone complaining about being paid a salary never closed any loans and never made any money and if they did close loans then they complain its not enough money.they dont even know how lucky they are to make anything in this economy right now. As far as subprime we do mostly all loans thru fha hud makes the rules if you want to call it subprime because people with low credit scores get loans then you dont know what a subprime loan is. to say they charge to much money for the transaction they are a company with 600 people and it cost a lot of money to run a company that size and market the company they way they do so they should just do everything for free. every comapny has to make money to stay in biz. So glad all of the negitive people quit so i dont have to work with them
