Keep an eye on your inbox, the lastest consumer news is on it's way!
Sometime about a year ago, I received a notification that BSI Financial was taking over my loan. I was concerned that it may have been because of the impending foreclosure and chapter 13 status, all due to the shenanigans and lies and scandals committed by the company whose loan they sold to BSI. Had that previous lender had modified or refinanced the loan they said I qualified for, nearly 6 years ago, this wouldn't even be a conversation. Now it's well known about the transgressions they've committed. I hoped that I would have an easier time working with them, until I read these reviews, all of which I am sure they are credible.
I just checked with my local tax office and saw my taxes were not paid, and thought that could be possible because I hadn't been able to pay my mortgage to the trustee, which again would have not even been a factor had my rate have been modified or refinanced 6 years ago. Nobody is paying 6.5 % not even now and rates were available for 2.x - 3.x % back when I was proactive and began the process 2 years after the previous modification.
At least I can go ahead with the escrow refund and supplement it with my own payment to get this paid current. But after reading these tales of woe, I'm not sure I'm going to have a good experience with them either. I generally don't write reviews unless I am thrilled with a company's products and services or am very displeased. At least I've been warned -Watch your back. Hopefully the end result is I save my house but move my loan to where I'm assured I get outstanding and responsive service.
If you should have the misfortune of having these people as your loan servicing company, #1 run away as fast as you can and refinance your home! You will have to stay on top of them every month to make sure your payments are posted, you will have to tell them to refigure your escrow, you may have to call them 11 times to get them to do it. When you call customer service, you may as well be talking to your cat. Call back as many times as you want and ask the same question, I guarantee you will get a different answer every time!
If you ask for a LOAN MODIFICATION, YOU BETTER HAVE A SHOE BOX READY TO LIVE IN BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART... They want your house! So do yourself a favor and pay your mortgage. They don't want to help you. If you have just 1 late payment for your whole loan, they will promise to remove the late fee and when you call to find out why it wasn't taken off, they will ask you, "who told you that"! Just fair warning my friends! BBB and the consumer financial protection bureau heard from me today. If BSI is your lender, you may get to know these people too. Have a great day.

This is the worst company I've ever dealt with. I was with previous company for 10 years. Never had a late fee. In the past 11 months I have had 4. One of which was a late fee for February of 2017 and they didn't have the loan, they took over on March 2 2017. I have called several times even contacted the previous mortgage company. My bank sends out the payment on the 10th as it's programmed to. It takes BSI anywhere from 2 to 10 days to process. Some months there is no late fee. Can't figure what they do. All they tell me it's my fault. Been doing this for 10 years. Never had a problem till now. Don't get paid till the 10th, payment goes out on the 10th. Some months it's process in 2 days. This month it took 9 days. Looking for a new mortgage company.

Learn from my headache and do NOT do business with this company if you can avoid it. My original home loan was sold to BSI, so I really didn't have much choice in having to deal with them. In July of 2017, I decided to refinance my mortgage with another company and my loan to BSI was paid in full in August. On September 15, 2017, BSI took a house payment (September's payment) out of my bank account. Of course I was shocked to see that come out of my account, especially when I wasn't expecting it since I had a zero balance with them as of August. I called them to find out why they took the money and the person who could help me was unavailable.
I was promised a callback. Several days went by, no call. I finally called them back and the only answer I could get was, "That shouldn't have happened", but no answer to why it happened or when I would get my money refunded. They needed to investigate. A few weeks later in October, I received a call from the BSI payoff dept stating I needed to send them an email stating I wanted to close the account. (The lady who called knew nothing about my refund, just noticed that the account had been paid off, but I needed to close the account officially. Weird, I've never had to do that on my other home refi's, but ok). She gave me directions of what to do, say and where to send the email.
I sent the requested email that night when I got home from work. On November 9th, I called and spoke with customer service (this company's customer service is the worst I have ever dealt with btw) to check on the status of my refund and I was informed it was being processed and I should receive it in 7-10 business days. The holiday season came and went and still no refund. On Jan 9, 2018 I called them again to see where my refund was. They said I needed to send them a request to close my account.
A close line letter they called it. I told them I emailed it to them back in October, per their instructions. Per the CS rep, they never received it. She then informed me that an email wouldn't work anyway as they needed an original signature on their form. "Fine. Will you email me a copy of the form so I can sign it and send it back?" She said yes and that it would be emailed to me right away. I looked in my email for several days and no letter. I even checked my snail mail thinking maybe I misunderstood her and she was going to mail it to me.
On Jan 19th, I called back to let them know I still had not received the letter and I was told it was still being processed and would be sent out by Jan 22nd at the latest. (Seriously, who takes that long to send out an email?) I asked to speak with a manager as this was getting ridiculous. The rep contacted a manager named Mirrie ** and said they would send me the form immediately. They did, to my surprise. I signed it, emailed and faxed it back. I also emailed Mirrie ** with my concerns and some questions about my refund, to which the reply I received was a very short "We didn't get the form. Resubmit." No answer to any of my questions or any expressed concern or sympathy about the runaround I am getting from their company.
On Feb 5, 2018 I called to check on the status of my refund. They said they had not received my signed copy of the close line letter. She was however, able to locate the email I sent back in October asking them to close my account, but that wasn't enough. I verified where I should be sending a copy of my signed letter and sent it again. (Btw, while this nightmare of trying to get my refund was going on, BSI also closed, then re-opened my auto payments through my bank account (remember, my account with them is a zero balance) and they also put mandatory insurance on my home to the tune of $1200.00 because they didn't have proof of insurance, even though they were no longer the mortgage company that my loan was financed through.
I called 2 weeks ago to find out the status of my refund and they told me it was being processed and I should have it the next week (3/4-3/10). I finally felt relief, like maybe this nightmare was over. Guess what, still no refund and today I received a call from BSI stating that I need to provide them a signed copy of the "Close line letter" in order for them to process my refund and close my account!!! How many times do I have to go through this with this company? How is it that one person tells me it's being processed and the other person tells me they have no record of what they need. I am a very patient person, but I am done with this company and am going to find a way to take action against them. It's been 7 months! SERIOUSLY, DO NOT USE BSI FINANCIAL.
On behalf of BSI, I want to extend my sincerest apologies for the negative experience that you've had. Please note that I'd like to assist you personally in getting this matter resolved immediately. I've thoroughly reviewed the account and believe once you and I speak we can resolve this with clarification. Again, I would be happy to discuss your concerns further. Please reach out to us at 1-800-327-7861 and your call will be directed to me.

If I could give them less than one star I would. They put forced place flood insurance on my even though I pay for it. Then they said it wasn't enough-it is more than the loan amount so that is enough. Now after 18 months of me paying my own insurance and taxes, they say my escrow is 36 months short and are going to jack up my payment for the shortage. But I don't have an escrow account because I pay my own insurance and taxes! Fools. But if I don't pay, you know what happens. It is theft. The customer service people never, ever know the answer but always want 7-10 business days to research it. And they want me to fax them documents, 2 and 3 times because it is never received. And who faxes anymore? FOOLS.

Signed up with "Greg" just after Thanksgiving, had to pay upfront $170 before they would begin ANY settlement discussions. Paid that... It is now over 2 months later, I have paid to them $1048, and still I have NO settlements in place, interest and fees are still accruing on the 2 accounts, and when you call Customer Service they know nothing! They will NEVER provide ANY documentation of monies received NOR monies paid out! No beginning balances... NOTHING! When I requested PROOF of payments made, they REFUSED! Been calling my "Rep" Greg for 3 WEEKS. He refuses to return ANY calls! DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! They are a scam!

Extremely poor customer service! Our mortgage was sold to BSI by our original lender & the transition has been brutal. We received a letter from original lender informing us that our loan would now be serviced by BSI and we should send next month's payment to BSI instead. BSI never sent us a statement or letter or anything so when the next payment became due we mailed it to BSI at the address given by original lender. We included a copy of the letter from the original lender about the transfer which had all of the account info. The check cleared our bank & then we received a letter from BSI explaining that they would now be handling our loan. Still no statement for next payment but a "temporary coupon" was included with the letter so we mailed the 2nd month's payment in with that.
The amount of payment increased by 16% although we were told everything would stay the same. The 2nd month's check cleared our bank but BSI has not applied the payment to our account and continues to send past due notices. We have not had any luck on the phone so by certified mail, we sent copies of the cancelled check. They still can't get it corrected. For the 3rd month's payment we finally received a statement but that too, shows last month's payment has not been paid. Although we made the payment & have sent BSI a copy of the canceled check, they cannot seem to get it corrected. Another phone call today proved unsuccessful. Shopping for another lender.

My mortgage servicing was transferred to BSI beginning December 1 from another servicer with just two weeks notice. I had never heard of BSI before and when I went on ConsumerAffairs to see what I could find out about them, I was not happy. Negative review after negative review, horror story after horror story. Combine those reviews with the $20 BSI charges to make a payment using a customer service representative and that you can't make partial payments online unless you pay the full monthly amount, I was not liking this new servicer at all (I have to split my monthly payment and was able to do so at no charge with my previous servicer).
The good news is that I called BSI today to see if there was anything that I could do and learned that I was assigned someone to talk to who is not a CSR. Her name is Nicole ** and she was wonderful. She was patient, knowledgeable and explained what my payment options are to make it work for me. And she processed a half month's payment for me, no problem. Have to give props where props are due. I'm still leery about BSI but kudos to Ms. **!
They consistently lost our payments and charged us a late fee. We finally had to do auto-pay. When you call it’s nearly impossible to get a person on the phone and when you do, they never follow-up or call you back. Just a very bad experience all around. Borrowers beware!!
I have not yet received the overpayment after the closing of my mortgage. I have now waited over 12 weeks. Every time I call I have to give them my current address AGAIN! Each time they give me a new date that the check has been mailed! How hard it is to write an address down and mail a check! Absolutely the most incompetent people that I have had to deal with.
I have had the worst experience with BSI Financial Services. This is the third home I've owned, and the first time my mortgage is with BSI. Anything that can go wrong with them in the last year has for me. I first had them automatically withdraw from my account my payment. I set up the days of the month I needed the payment to charge my account. Well, twice they charged my account on the incorrect day, thus overdrawing my account. My latest experience is with them paying my escrow to my homeowners.
When my insurance carrier contacted me one month ago to tell me it hasn't been paid I immediately contacted BSI. Well one month later it still is not paid, I had to pay my insurance carrier out of my pocket in order to avoid cancellation of my homeowners and to this day BSI still has not paid the escrow payment to my insurance company. I literally have called 6 times and get completely different answers from every person I talk to. If anyone is looking to use BSI for their mortgage - read this! DO NOT DO IT!!! They are the absolute worst company in the world.
My husband and I filed for a modification and they denied it (a investor owns property mccomick). We filed for bankruptcy and now I am trying to make a payment. Cant talk to anyone. Voicemail is all you get.
After 5 years of trying to obtain a modification from my lender, BSI Financial Services, I was granted one in March of 2016. My 1st payment was due on April 1, 2016 with a 10 day grace period. I sent my payment in the form of money orders, certified mail, on April 2, 2016. On April 15, 2016, I called my loss mitigation specialist, Sandra ** to confirm the receipt of payment. She did not answer, so I left a message and sent an email. I called again on 4-18-2016 and Ms. ** answered. I asked if my payment had been received. She said no. I told her that I sent the payment certified mail and the post office told me that the payment had reached its destination. I also told her that I called MoneyGram to see if the money orders had been cashed. They hadn't. I informed her that I had taken pictures of the money orders after I filled them out, before I mailed them. She asked me to email her the picture. I did. She confirmed receipt of the email.
I called and emailed almost everyday for the remainder of that month asking if the payment had been received. On May 1, 2016, I called BSI to make my second payment over the phone using my debit card. My call was answered by Kyle ext: ** in Titusville PA. He told me that he could not accept my payment because there was a code on my account that needed to be removed by my loss mitigation specialists. I asked to be transferred to my specialist, but Sandra ** was not available. I left her a message letting her know that I was having issues with their system and to please advise me as to what I should do.
Over the next week I called 5 times, but was unable to reach Ms. **. Finally, on May 10, 2016 I was able to reach Ms. ** and she told me that BSI would not accept my second payment because my first payment had not yet been received which meant it was late and I had defaulted on my agreement. She said the agreement was now null and void and BSI would reinstate foreclosure proceedings. I told her that my payment not being received was not my fault and that I had sent it certified mail. She said they hadn't received it yet, and the matter was out of her hands. Later that month, when I received my next billing statement it reflected that my payment had been received and applied to my balance.
I have been trying since May of 2016 to obtain another modification, but BSI has been completely uncooperative. BSI has been trying ever since to foreclose on my home, to the point that I have had to file for bankruptcy protection. I am currently in Bankruptcy. I am not asking for special treatment, I simply want the modification I was promised and worked so hard to obtain so that I may keep my home. An auction sale date for my property has been set for this Friday July 28, 2017.
As a resolution, I am seeking a modification of my loan. I have been told by "Keep Your Home California," a Federally funded program set up by The US Treasury Department that if BSI would be willing to modify my loan and put the amount that I owe as a deferment and not a balloon, then I could reapply with the negative equity as a hardship and would qualify for KYHCs Principal Reduction Program which would pay up to $1000,000 to my lender to help me get caught up on what I owe. Please help. I do not want to lose my home. I am not sure where to go, but after doing research on BSI Financial and their modification procedures, I discovered there are hundreds of complaints against BSI and their business practices. They are pulling this scam all across america and there is no one standing up for the little guy losing his home daily.
On June 6, 2017. I went to the Nationwide Posting & Publication website to view foreclosure sale information about my home. Once I arrived at the site, It stated that my property was to be sold the following day, June 7, 2017. After reviewing the information, I called my loan servicer, BSI Financial and asked to speak to my account manager, Sandra **. I was told that Sandra wasn't available and was asked if I needed help by the person who answered my call. That person was Lazandra **.
Lazandra ** told me that she was an account specialist and worked in the Loss Mitigation Dept. with Sandra **. I told her that I had visited the Nationwide Posting website and that it said my property was up for sale the following day. I asked her if the website was correct and was my home going to be put up for auction on the 7th? She said no. According to her records, BSI had received my request for a Modification and that they had received a complete package. She also said she, nor BSI needed any further documents from me. She told me that because I was under review for a modification, that the sale had been placed on hold, and my property will not be put up for auction the following day.
Lazandra also said that according to California state law, no property can be sold while under review for a modification, that my Loss Mitigation Package was currently being reviewed by the underwriter, and according to California state law, even if my request for an appeal is denied, BSI has to send me a denial letter and give me 30 days to appeal their decision. If BSI denies my appeal, they have to send me an appeal denial letter before my property can be placed back up for auction.
I asked Lazandra several more times throughout our 9 minute and 54 sec. long conversation, Lazandra, are you 100% sure that my property will not go to auction tomorrow, June 7th? She assured me that their was no chance of my property being put up for auction because in her system there was no sale date attached to my property and that the sale had been placed on hold. She told me the only reason Nationwide Posting had a sale date of June the 7th showing on their website was because their system was slow and she had access to the most up to date information regarding my property.
I even asked Lazandra directly, If BSI denies my request for a modification today June 6th, are you saying you still can't sell my home tomorrow because you have to give me time to appeal and resubmit documents? Lazandra said yes, that is correct. Her exact words were We can't place your property back on the market while you are in the appeals process. We have to give you 30 days to appeal, we have to review your appeal, and we have to send you an answer back before we can place your property back on the market because you are in the state of California.
And just because I wanted to make very sure that I was understanding her correctly, I asked once more before our conversation ended, Lazandra, are you sure my property will not go to auction tomorrow? Her answers was, No your property will not go to auction tomorrow because it's under review and it has been placed on hold. She said maybe it would go to auction if there weren't a hold placed on the account, but there is, so you have nothing to worry about. I asked if I could get a printed document that says the sale has been placed on hold? She said, no, but don't worry, your home will not be put up for auction tomorrow.
At about 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 7th., the day after I spoke with Lezandra **, I checked the Nationwide Posting & Publication website to see if there had been any changes in regards to my account being placed on hold. To my surprise, upon reviewing the site, I noticed that it had been updated to now include an opening bid amount for my home and the time in which the sale would start (1:00 pm pst). I immediately called BSI and requested to speak with my account manager, Sandra **. I was told she was in a meeting. I then requested to speak with her supervisor, I was told he was in a meeting as well. I told the person who answered my call (I didn't get her name) about the previous conversation I had with Lazandra the day before. I told her that the website had gone from saying Scheduled sale date 6/7/2017 to listing an opening bid amount and a time in which the sale would take place.
She said The hold on your property has been removed and the request for modification was closed out today. I asked if my property would in fact be put up for auction? She said she couldn't give me that information because she was in a different department and didn't have access to those notes. I asked to speak with her supervisor and she told me that he wouldn't be able to help me either. I asked to speak with her supervisor again and she placed me on hold. After being on hold for a very long time, I was transferred to someone named Daniel **. He said he was a Manager in the corporate office in Dallas Texas.
I explained to Daniel, my conversation with Lezandra and that the woman who transferred me to him said the hold was removed and I was no longer under consideration for a modification. I told him I needed to know if my property will be put up for auction today at 1:00 pm (less than 3hr. from now.) His exact words were Mr. **, let me just confirm with you that BSI is a servicer. We service loans for private investors. Your particular investor happens to be CAM Trust who's the owner of the note. In the state of California, there is a law named the SB-900 law that states that a bank, servicer, or investor can deny the review of a loan modification package if it's sent when there is a scheduled sale date (which is not true). Daniel ** also said We have received your request for a modification and the investor had declined to review it and we are proceeding with sale today at 1:00 pm.
I asked Daniel if Lazandra had lied when she told me I had 30 days to appeal a denial. Was she lying when she said that there was no way for my home to go to auction on the 7th? At that point, Daniel cut me off, mid sentence, and began to get very aggressive and rude. He told me that I needed to Stop talking now if I want my questions answered! He also said Mr. **, you've had your chance to speak, now it's my turn. When I'm done, you can ask any questions you want! He then said, No, Lazandra was not lying. The hold was removed today, you spoke with Lazandra yesterday. She would have seen a hold on the account yesterday because the hold was not removed until sometime this morning.
I then said, Lazandra told me I had 30 days after a denial to appeal. Daniel said, No, thats based on the packet we were going to review you for however, it was brought to our attention today that we have received notification from the investor this morning to remove the hold, we are gonna proceed with sale. I asked him if the sale would be taking place at 1 pm my time or his time. He said my time. I asked for his full name and location, thanked him for his time, and we hung up. I was forced to file a bankruptcy to protect my home. The sale was postponed to June 30. I was not given a full 30 days to appeal their decision. In fact, today is June 28, 2017 and neither myself, nor my attorney have yet to receive a denial letter from BSI. It is my belief that BSI purposely gave me wrong information in an attempt to fraudulently and underhandedly foreclose on my property.
As a result of my conversations with both Lazandra * and Daniel **, I have questions: 1. Why would Lazandra ** tell me that my Loss Mitigation packet was under review with the underwriter if it wasn't? 2. Why would Lezandra tell me that BSI has to give me 30 days to appeal, they have to review my appeal, and they have to send me an answer back before they can place my property back on the market because I am in the state of California, if that was not true? 3. Why would Daniel ** lie about SB-900? 4. Why have I still not received a denial letter from BSI? 5. Why did Daniel ** lie about the investor declining to review my Loss Mitigation package?
I was sent a letter from Sandra ** on April 27, 2017 that stated, my Loss Mitigation package was received and is being reviewed by BSI. A decision will be determined within 30 days from that date. I called numerous times to get an update, but my calls were never returned. However, if I had been under review since April 27th and it takes 30 days to make a decision, how is it possible that the investor decided on June 7th that they would deny reviewing my Loss Mitigation packet? There are too many inconsistencies with BSI's business practices.
I assure you that my statements in this complaint are truthful and factual, however if anyone questions the accuracy of my statements, I would be more than happy to send the videotaped recordings of both conversations. I couldn't attached the videos to this complaint because the files were too big and there was no way for me to cut them into small enough pieces to attach them.
My only goal is to receive a modification. I have sent off another Loss Mitigation package and it is my hope, that this time, BSI will be fairly reviewed and considered my request. I know I have missed payments, but it is my goal to get back on track and repay everything I owe through a modification. I am now able to work with Keep Your Home California, but they do not assist applicants who are in active bankruptcies. My prayer is that BSI will postpone my sale date to August 31, 2017, so that KYHC can have the time they need to review and assist me in my modification and repayment of what's owed. I live in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house in an unincorporated part of Fontana California. My mortgage is $1,600 per month with an interest rate of over 6%.
In my neighborhood and in surrounding neighborhoods in this part of my county, a person can rent a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house for $1,600 per month. In fact, the house next door to mine is for rent for $1,300 per month and it's a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom home on an acre of land. That price is reflective of the current market in my area. At the current amount of my mortgage, getting a roommate isn't even feasible. In order to get a roommate, I would have to charge half my mortgage, $800 per month. It would be impossible to find a roommate because you can rent a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom house in my neighborhood for $700. I need help. If I could just get my interest rate lowered, I would be able to make the payment. I am asking BSI to please approve me for a modification. Thank you.
I recently had an increase in my mortgage payment. I called this company for an explanation and spoke with a female named Jamie at extension ** on July 3, 2017. This person not only could not give me an explanation for the increase, but lied and misdirected me by asking me to go back to the County and ask for a different letter of my new Homestead Exemption. She claimed that the company did not receive this letter that was faxed to them 3 month ago on May 11, 2017.
I called back BSI office in Titusville, PA 1-800-327- 7861 the same day after visiting my County's Office after they told me that letter the letter they had sent me was correct. Jamie had also told me that my escrow increase was due to a tax disbursement that was made back in 2015, which was completely false. I have copies of the taxes that have been paid on my property to prove it. This character of "Jamie" at extension ** was not available, but that was difficult to locate without a last name I was told. So the poor person that answered my call took the heat professionally and took note to send for a correction of my Annual Escrow Account Disclosure Statement (as she told me). Also this person told me that she found the letter of my new Exemption that "Jamie" told me they had not received.
Last year there was another incident with a payment they claimed they had not received. They payment was sent by my bank. Even though I provided them with a transaction number they harassed me with phone calls morning, afternoons and evenings. I had to put a stop payment on the check that the bank had sent and send them the payments with late charge fees included to get them off my hair. I found out on my own that the new escrow increase was due to an increase in my Home Insurance, they still have to correct the financial projection (Annual Escrow Account Disclosure Statement) since my taxes for the year 2017 went down. CONSUMER BEWARE if you have the misfortune of using BSI Financial Services. Keep your eyes open for accuracy for any bill they send you and record the last name of the person you speak to if you have to address any issue. Thanks for reading my review and good luck.
The company I have a line of credit with went bankrupt and BSI Financial assumed the debt. I have received letters in the mail with random charges tacked onto my account without any support or explanation. When I called the number on the letter and asked what the charge was for, I could not get an explanation. My credit rating is excellent. I've filed an official complaint to hold BSI Financial accountable for actions that skim government rules and regulations to protect consumers like me. BEWARE OF BSI FINANCIAL. If you do not question this company's devious methods; you will get mysterious charges attached to your account.
I have been at it with these clowns for going on 2 months now. There is a home and land next to mine that is being sold. Come to find out that my property line goes 1/2 way through their house! So, long story short, we did a lot line adjustment. .60/acre each to fix the boundary line issue and unencumber their title. The lands in question are the SAME... no differences in value whatsoever. Everything is done, signed off by all governmental entities, recorded with the county, etc. But wait!! Because the 'legal' description has changed my servicer - BSI has to do and allow a partial reconveyance of the deed. Basically, they have to 'approve' of the new legal description.
Pretty simple right? NOPE... Lea there won't return calls, you can't e mail them, her supervisor Janell doesn't return calls either. I have even tried to contact their boss, Candice... get a reply... nope... So here we are, the poor folks next door can't complete their purchase of the property until BSI 'get's around to it'... pathetic. Here are some places that we can file complaints with and possibly take it as far as a class action law suit. Let's get this going!
I am really not sure why this company is still in business. My mortgage was unfortunately sold to them. It should not be okay to all of the sudden increase your payment by $350 a month due to failure to pay the taxes correctly. They assign an agent to you however, that person will not call you back. This company has put me in financial hardship and is a nightmare to deal with.
On 11/16/ 2016 I have received numerous calls from my insurance company declaring that they have not received any payments from BSI Financial. I called and spoke with 5 different reps who refused to speak with me because they have to get another authorization from your office in order to help me. This is unfair and now the insurance company is saying if they do not receive payment my insurance will lapse. On 11/16/2017 ** FAX NUMBER, per conversation on 11/16 with Prisca ** she advised the insurance agent to send her the declaration page so that they can pay it. Per Jerry with my insurance company he has sent the documents by fax and email to her on several occasions and she still hasn't responded. I have the emails showing where she read them but never responded.
I have called BSI from 11/2016 to until 01/2017 when I received another call from Agent Mutual and was told Prisca ** with BSI never sent payment therefore my insurance has cancelled effective 11/2016 so now I have to find insurance because she is not responding. Since then on 03/07/2017 BSI has yet again transferred my loan to another company FAY Servicing. I am asking that someone from your company contact me or my lawyer about this matter. I pay too much money for my home and have no proof that where you all sent my money to. There should be records that I have overpaid you all since no one paid my home insurance which is included in my mortgage.
I have been dealing with BSI for over 3 years now. My mortgage was sold to them by Chase when I claimed bankruptcy. They are a complete nightmare. Their agents are rude and incompetent. When they first picked up my loan they stopped paying my taxes and then they stopped paying my homeowners which was eventually cancelled for awhile. They held a check I wrote for the mortgage one month and then sent it back and said it was held for 90 days?? Really?
Last year's transaction history has months where none of my payments were applied to my principal. They have a section on the history called "other". Some of my monthly payments went into that account and no one can tell me what it is for. This year they decided not to pay some of my interest on my mortgage so when I went to file my taxes I had to call IRS. They told me to use last year's numbers. I just don't understand how this company does not get into some kind of trouble. It seems to me some of what they are doing is illegal. I don't get it. I waited 3 years for a loan modification and the payments are higher than my regular mortgage. If you don't have to use them I'd advise that you do not!
THIS MUST BE THE WORST PRACTICING BUSINESS I HAVE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF BEING FORCED TO DEAL WITH!!! Please excuse the caps, but they are an expression of how truly beyond frustrated I have been since this company bought my mortgage from another broker. These people must be stopped and investigated. As customers we must come together and bring some type of action against this company!!! They are playing with my Homeowner's insurance and property taxes just as mentioned in all of the previous statements and this is happening at exactly the same time as the other customers are going through it with this company.
This all started in 2016!!! If anyone is interested in seeking LEGAL recourse against this company, we need to contact each other and find 1 attorney to represent us ALL!!! I hate the day they took over my money for the second time. Yes, I said money. Because they have caused me more undue financial stress in the past year than I have gone through in the entire 10 Years I have been in this property!!!
I have been trying to resolve my account since 2015. My mortgage was assumed in 2016 and the account is still listed in my name. ** does not call her clients back. I am very frustrated. Poor customer service.
My mortgage been sold out from Wells Fargo to BSI only month ago. I called the appointee person Marco but he never care to call me back! To know about my status with foreclosure so I called any one then! Her name was Mary she oh they usually answer back 48 hours later which already been over 48 already! I ask, "Could you check my status?" She said, "Oh the sales date is tomorrow morning and you have no time to do anything!!" I said "how come I just received today the statement saying due date next month? Why you did not send confirmation date letter instead?" She said those statement are just the computer process them automatically. She repeated that nightmare procedure for tomorrow. I couldn't eat or sleep all day all night for this nightmare! They are collection! I'm 71 years old still working my X line side in this house. He is veteran disable!! Any dignity?!
I have never in my life experienced anything like what I have with BSI Financial. My nightmare started in August of 2014. I sent in my monthly payment in the beginning of the month then at the end of the month I sent in September's payment, and then in October BSI said I didn't pay September. We were on the phone with Customer Care and was told the payment at the end of August was put towards principal because you can not make two payments in one month. I now have 1200.00 in late fees that I refuse to pay for their mistake. Every time I call and ask to speak with a supervisor they are always in a meeting and never once have I received a return phone call.
When I finally get the August matter straighten out I receive a bill for a different month that BSI says I missed a payment. When I fax proof that they cashed my check they tell me a different month I missed and never take off late fees that I don't owe, and the kicker is I am now receiving foreclosure notices, and I have all my checks to prove they cashed them and they won't remove them. I have even tried sending my payment registered mail and they got my payment on the fifth, and put a late fee down on the 17th of the month. I don't know what is going on in this company but how can any of this be legal?
My husband & I filed bankruptcy & surrendered our home. We paid out of bankruptcy & was discharged. We started receiving letters & phone calls from BSI Financial Services saying they bought our mortgage from Chase & was harassing us. We explained the bankruptcy & had our attorney contact them. They even showed up taking pictures of our rental home. They called us threatening us all hour of the day & night for over 2 years. It has been six years since our bankruptcy and we have now received a 1099-C from them. This is ridiculous & has to be stopped.
BSI has to be the least customer friendly mortgage holder I have ever encountered. They are slow to process requests for changes. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT HOLD AN ESCROW ACCOUNT WITH BSI - My escrow amount due monthly has changed 3 times in the last 3 months. I'll be glad when BSI sells my loan.
I have lived in my house since 1996. Had purchased it 1999. Of course the first mortgage company sold my mortgage to another investor. Just in the last year and a half, I have been bounced back and forth between BSI and SLS. I was informed that my mortgage is late by one month. I was also informed I had no homeowners or flood insurance on my home. Hello??? This is all supposed to be included as part of my mortgage payment. I had to remind SLS to pay my property taxes. I called on 12/19/16 and again today, because they are telling me they have to review my account and it will take 5 to 10 days. Of course it was reflected on my credit report. I asked them first of all not to say that my call is being recorded in an attempt to collect a debt. Hello? Are you not a mortgage company? Or are you a collection agency? Very rude and degrading I must say.
I was bounced back to BSI in August. So they would only have to review August, September, October, November and December. Can they not look at my account and work with me immediately? Nope! I have to wait till they have time to do it. Why are there customer service representatives? What do they do all day long? Why do I not have insurance on my house? What if, god forbid, something happened to my house? Then what! To top it off after speaking with them yesterday, I opened my mailbox and had a letter from BSI telling me that select portfolio servicing will be taking over my account as of February 2017. What a nightmare! I want to file a lawsuit against these unprofessional mortgage companies. Don't you?
For about a year we had no complaints. Then we decided to change the bank account our payments were being withdrawn from. We filled out the form and sent it in. Nothing happened. Ultimately, since this bank account was a secondary account, we ended up keeping it open solely to accommodate BSI. We lived. Fast forward about 8 months... Out of nowhere, BSI decides they're going to change the date the payment is being withdrawn (from the unused secondary account that we were going out of our way to deposit money to avoid a missed payment). Hello, NSF. We filled out another form to have the date changed back to the original date, and guess what? Nothing happened! They continually (for about 3 months) took payments out on the wrong day from the wrong account.
We gave them the ol' ultimatum and advised they get their crap together or we're going elsewhere. Surprise surprise they couldn't do that either. Now we're here. They are still (3 months later) trying to contact us saying we owe them for their NSF fees from missed payments and fees for next year even though we canceled. I can't believe a 'professional' business would treat any paying customer with such a lack of respect and morale. So if you need home insurance, or any insurance, don't trust BSI. The only part of BSI I trust is the BS.
I got the mortgage with BSI after Chase sold it. It's been a plain nightmare since then. They don't believe in loan modifications. I am disable and they want me to vacate the property as soon as possible. They are sending a real estate agent every week to make sure that I leave the property. They send letters to contact people that never respond to you or maybe they don't exist. Who knows. I will be on the street if I don't get help as soon as possible!
First of all, I give them 1 star because it was required. BofA sold these people my mortgage. If you have a choice don't use them. From the beginning they sent me inaccurate statements then made me pay "trial payments" which were $1500.00 more than the actual payment amount. I ended up suing them because they violated Dodd-Frank.
Condescending/predatory. They just took over my loan. Are late with all paper work. Send confusing dates and addresses. Putting the burden on us to provide ins. information that was on record with previous service. Threats of high priced placed insurance. I have never had a lapse in insurance coverage and am current with home and flood. They sent all payment information after the due date. I do not trust them.
