Here an article for those consumers who think choosing a mortgage provider is more about choosing the company than the person who is actually servicing the loan. Buyer beware... If you have the chance, also check out the video that is provided on the website on this link below...

BOSTON -- Community activists took their complaints directly to the offices of one of the country's biggest lenders and called for a boycott.

NewsCenter 5's Jack Harper reported that it was organized by the Neighborhood Assistance Corp. Dozens of protestors occupied the Jamaica Plain office of Countrywide Financial, which they describe as the nation's leading mortgage lender.

"This is the first office we've gone to the start of the boycott. The first office. They've got over 1,000 offices in the country. Obviously, the word is starting to get out before, because there are no customers," NACA's Bruce Marks said.

Many obtained adjustable mortgages and then encountered large interest increases and refinancing fees. They said the company knowingly put thousands of homeowners in unaffordable mortgages.

"I worked part-time jobs. I found all this money went toward my mortgage -- not talking about insurance, not talking about taxes, not talking about food when my kids were hungry," said Kevin Brown, of Everett.

"I will tell you something -- my stupidity is the stupidity and people with such greed. Honest to God, I wasn't trying to be greedy or have more then I could afford. I had to fix my furnace. That's why I refinanced, and I have to tell you, I am stupid, really stupid," said Mary Ryan, of Plymouth.

They're asking Countrywide to save face and their homes by rewriting mortgages.

"Right-thinking people have to stand together and say we have to shut Countryside down," City Councilor Chuck Turner said.

They left Jamaica Plain promising more protests around the country.

I’m Henry Donald by name. I live in CANADA, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called HENRY LOANS COMPANY FROM USA who lend me an unsecured loan of $50,000 under 3hours without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders,i will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from HENRY LOANS COMPANY FROM USA, i pray that God should give him long life.
