Complaint / review text:
Lincoln National Group is a fraudulent company. I gave them $1800 to modify my loan. They asked me to assemble a ton of paperwork, and all they did was fax it to my mortgage company. I was awarded a forebarance agreement and a trial period where I was allowed to pay less than the full mortgage payment.
Lincoln National Group did not follow-up with the mortgage company, and, therefore, my loan modification file was closed. I now owe the mortgage company thousands of dollars in back mortgage payments, and my credit is being destroyed.
I spoke to two individuals with the company. One lady told me that their job was done because they "got me a loan modification." But, that is totally un-true. I was awarded a trial period, not a permanent loan modification. I am much worse off now than I was before I signed-up with Lincoln National Group. I spoke to another employee, the salesman that hooked me, and he said that he thinks that Lincoln National Group is a terrible company, and he has since opened another company where he can really take care of his clients. He then tried to convince me to spend another $1800 on his new company.
Since then, I have been in contact with my mortgage company, and they are working with me on my own. You DO NOT need any company to help you get a loan modification. All that company does is fax the mortgage company the documents that you tirelessly gather. Loan modification companies are a scam.
