Yeah, my family got told that they were approved for 80,000 loan, and worked with them for 3-4 weeks because we have never been able to get a house, we dont have the credit score for a real home loan- so long story short my mom actually ended up western unioning them 5,000 dollars out of money she got from a car accident she was in, and we have no real down payment for a house now anyways. but...she was living by the motto "desperate times call for desperate measures" and hoping by all hell that it was real. We all knew it wasnt, but we live in a really bad neighborhood on a pretty bad street and want out THATTTT bad. DONT TRUST THEM!
if you want to contact me we can all try and do something about this together.
one[five seven four] four four zero- one zero two nine.

oh and if anyone did anything as far as stepping legally, please let me know, this would be stronger if we all banded together.

Every lender is different so if you get turned down by one, don't get discouraged! I use a mortgage broker for my own personal mortgage needs and I've been using the same company for about 9 years. They have always been able to help me and all the friends I've referred to him. He's honest first and foremost and he'll give it to you straight! If you'd like more info, email me and I'll give you his number. ... more

If you just filed it may be a problem. A year ago is great, remember that you have to pay your bills for 7 years now and creditors know this. Landlords vary widely anyway, if one says no then another may say yes. A co-signer will help greatly.
