Ameriquest Mortgage Company
As noted in this post, subprime mortgage giant Ameriquest is the latest in a list of lenders getting their comeuppance for having engaged in questionnable practices (most in connection with refinances). Prosecutors in the Garden State announced a national, $325 million settlement last year in favor of 725,000 borrowers in 49 states. That agreement was among the largest consumer protection settlements ever reached by a government plaintiff. A similar $484 million settlement was obtained by a group of states in 2002 from Household Finance Corp.

One response to “one bad apple …

  1. Would you be kind enough to list some of these questionnable practices? It is becoming clear, only those actually “caught” can be pursed. Consumer’s need to re-address their current finance options – and what to avoid.
