or any other affiliated companies or individuals for mortgage assistance relief services, you may have been a victim of violations of the Consumer Financial Protection Act (“CFPA”) and Regulation O that prohibit advance fees and unfair or deceptive acts or practices by mortgage relief operations, and you may qualify for benefits from a settlement.

The CFPB investigated and sued Chance Gordon, Abraham Michael Pessar, and their companies for violating consumer-protection laws. The CFPB charged that the defendants violated the law by operating a nationwide loan modification scheme that preyed on distressed homeowners. In the lawsuit, the CFPB alleged that the defendants:

  • illegally charged consumers upfront fees for mortgage assistance relief services that consumers rarely, if ever, actually received;
  • falsely promised consumers that they would get mortgage loan modifications that would substantially reduce consumers’ mortgage payments and interest rates or help avoid foreclosure; and
  • falsely suggested that they were affiliated with or endorsed by the Government.

These acts violated the Consumer Financial Protection Act, the Mortgage Assistance Relief Services Rule, or both. The CFPB also alleged that defendants violated federal law by advising consumers to stop paying their mortgages without also warning the consumers that doing so could damage their credit ratings or cause them to lose their home. The CFPB also alleged that the defendants illegally instructed consumers not to communicate with their lenders.
