I’ve heard a lot of feedback lately about companies representing themselves as law firms, who are little more than “boiler room” operations to fish out leads for high-cost loan modifications and debt renegotiation services.
Furthermore, many of these operations aggressively work to make sure they have a “clean” Better Business Bureau record (by paying off people who threaten to complain) and then use that “clean” record as a primary weapon to establish their perceived “legitimacy”.
Many of these firms masquerade as government organizations or even as private law firms. Rarely are they either one of those things, and are usually instead large “boiler room” operations in which an aggressive sales floor behaves more like debt collectors than professional sales people, and harasses their targets quite thoroughly.
If you’re targeted by one of these firms, take heed: It’s probably a seriously overpriced, and nearly certainly ineffective, boiler room operation that likely has little or no real experience or competence as a loan modification service. Buyer beward.
