Federal Trade Commission Prohibits False claims

The MARS Rule prohibits mortgage relief companies from making any false or misleading claims about their services, including claims about:

  • the likelihood of consumers getting the results they seek;
  • the company’s affiliation with government or private entities;
  • the consumer’s payment and other mortgage obligations;
  • the company’s refund and cancellation policies;
  • whether the company has performed the services it promised;
  • whether the company will provide legal representation to consumers;
  • the availability or cost of any alternative to for-profit mortgage assistance relief services;
  • the amount of money a consumer will save by using their services; or
  • the cost of the services.

In addition, the rule bars mortgage relief companies from telling consumers to stop communicating with their lenders or servicers. Companies also must have reliable evidence to back up any claims they make about the benefits, performance, or effectiveness of the services they provide.

    I was informed by themragroup regarding my refund of which I applied, I almost lost my home thanks to this company. I cannot get anyone to refund me even a partial amount. All they did was delay my mortgage payments but I lost even more in having to pay them plus got way behind on my mortgage.

      Hi Debra, I am supposed to talk to these people tonight. I just paid another co, AmeriHope Alliance to do a mod on my home. They were supposed to work with my mortgage co and I was told that I did not have to accept the 1st offer. That wasn’t true. I was already under water and I now have another $11K added to the balance owed.
      Mortgage Relief Adv are telling me that I didn’t receive the HAMP and that they can help me get my money back from AmeriHope. They are telling me that I can get my paym’ts lowered another $200 a mo and their service won’t cost me anything!
      Here are some #’s you might try. Jack Castillo, Acct Mgr 323-312-5621
      This is the # that they called from 323-303-3363.
      Good luck with this. I’ll see what they tell me tonight.

    I have been a victim as well. I have read over 100 fraudulent complaints about the MRA Group. How are these people able to continue their practice is beyond my understanding. I think its time that all parties affected by the MRA Group get together on a class action law suite. It is by far the only way to both get what we deserve as far as damages, & put these predictors out of business for good. Hopefully to include jail time for Rodger Price himself.

      I have been doing my homework. I have been looking up business names that these people have giving me (ex. MRA) I believe these people are working for Bank of America as a third party. Scamming people out of money. If you google their address you will see how close they are to alot of BOA. I have been researching this for over a year now and anyone who contacts me I let them email me their information and then I research the info. I have found out alot of these places don’t even have physicals address…But there are sure alot of BOA around.

    I have also been a victim of this company the owe me $1,200.00…..and we have lost our home no thanks to them. And ever since I told them that we were serviced with an eviction notice I haven’t heard from them.

    They don’t even care if we are in the street. Plus we were sent papers saying there was an eviction hearing on a certain day and they told us we don’t have to go cause they can’t evict us and guess what we didn’t go and we should have gone. So we go serviced eviction papers. I want there heads on a platter.

    Hello,
    I am Heather H V-. I like to share my story here. I started with MRA Group in Aug 2013 and send in $2,250 payment with all my paper work. Nothing is being done. They assigned me to one Julian Hamilton who started with Men then Mary Smith (whom has a strong Accent ). What I’m I to do? I’m going to lose my house.

  5. Antonio DaRosa says:

    I hope God has no mercy. That Roger Price is a lieing fool who preys on innocent people. I lost my home & got evicted under his watch. Believing him & going along with what he said caused so much problems at home that ultimately caused the seperation with my fiance.
    I hope he ends up in jail for a long time.

  6. Sheree banks says:

    I am also a victim of this so called MRA program. They told me we qualified for a Gov program and it would lower our mortgage. But when I told them I could not pay the $2,000.00 they wanted to get started I was told that our name would be put on a list of gov programs and state that we did not want help so I got scared and sis what he said.

    Now we are 9 months behind on our mortgage and I can not get in touch with any of them all the numbers I have are not in service or disconnected, I’m so scared we will loose our house and I have to tell my husband ,I really hope no one else gets taken by these evil people

I am now reading these reviews and find that I may have lost not only my home but all my money. these people let me to believe that I had nothing to worry about that everything will be taken care of!! now I can see him in a pool with a bunch of other people who are in the same boat I am.
    If there is a class action lawsuit I count me in.

    If there is a class action lawsuit I count me in. The phone numbers above one for Jack Costello, the man told me I should avoid scams like I saw it coming or had I known I would have actually fell for it, that second number use to belong to Alexander McDavis and is a non working number at this time .
