Here is what others are saying about OCWEN. You are not alone. Let your complaint be heard too.
Ocwen has been accused of heavy-handed mortgage-servicing tactics in the past, and in April signed an agreement with the federal Office of Thrift Supervision that lays out, over nine pages, how the company is to guarantee fair treatment to its customers.
Ocwen is also the target of a federal class-action lawsuit in Chicago over its foreclosures and problems with its mortgage-servicing program.
“Ocwen has been stealing people’s homes, that’s the bottom line,” said Hartford lawyer Kweku J. Hanson, who filed a class-action lawsuit against the company in U.S. District Court in Hartford two years ago that was ultimately merged into the Chicago case.
The company routinely fails to apply payments that were received on time, some that were even delivered via Western Union, Hanson said, and it requires unneeded insurance.
He said the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has received more than 52,000 complaints against Ocwen, and the Federal Trade Commission another 1,000, which he obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request.
“Five months after they signed the consent decree with the Office of Thrift Supervision, they were doing the same things,” Hanson said. “It hasn’t stopped them, if the statements I get from all over the country are to be believed.”
