Carol asks…

Has anyone gotten a letter from AFT offering a principal reduction on your home loan?

I called them because I thought the letter was from my lender, Wells Fargo, but it was from this AFT company (Automated Financial Transactions) saying that they could work with Wells Fargo, I belive they said they buy or sell morgages, and can help us reduce our home loan principal amount considerably, just wanted to check them out and see if anyone has heard of them, or knows anything about this program. Thank you.

John answers:

SCAM alert –
This company is not out there to help you.
They will charge you about 2% of the price of your loan and promise to help you re-fi.
After they get your check – good LUCK getting them to help you.
Just wave bye- bye to your money.
Don’t be so easily fooled by mail you get – be more careful next time.

Contact Wells Fargo if you need a loan modification – if they can help you they are required to help you. If not contact Making Home Affordable website.
These people will call wells fargo and make sure they get your home refinanced if you qualify.
