This is a fraudulent company through and through. They are LPS Service Provided and commit the same crimes Lorraine Brown was convicted for - http://www.scribd.com/doc/237271086/LNV-vs-Breitlings-Breitlings-Motion-for-Judicial-Notice-of-Lorraine-Criminal-Indictment

You must understand that all is not as it appears. Dovenmuehle is not what you think it is nor where you think it is. LNV Corporation is definitely not what you think it is. LOOK very closely, dissect under microscope and you will be amazed as to what you will find. D. Andrew Beal and accountant Tom Montgomery and cronies are soon in for a rude awakening.

This company is fraud and the world know it. God don't like ugly and sure don't favor pretty, therefore they time is coming to and end and they will get caught up. Their paper work is fraudulent and they sign people name on paper work themselves, but don't sign the name correct. Dumb!

This is the worst company ever. I called this place and they did not know I was at my attorney office. They haven't report to the credit bureau since 2010 on my account. Then the office continue to give you a run around. Lies after lies. Worst company ever. The staff doesn't even know who there supervisor are. Praying someone else buy my account.

Beware. LNV Corporation is not a real company, is only a company on PAPER. They need Dovenmuehle for a conduit to get your home. Sue them both and you will get only one attorney. Nothing is as it seems. Research everything. Fight. Beal will be taken down and soon.

This company launders money for D. Andrew Beal and a group of his sham companies: LVN Corporation, MGC Mortgage Inc., LPP Mortgage, and many more.... If you are a victim call Mortgage Fraud Defenders at 888-612-6664. A group of victims is fighting back - they have collected a ton of evidence of fraud, money laundering and other criminal activities by these companies. We are reporting them to a variety of government agencies including the IRS, FBI, U.S. Attorney and our State Attorneys and representatives. We are also looking for a large law firm that will represent us in a civil fraud and RICO complaint. We will be putting up more information online soon.

I fell ill for approximately 2 years. My husband is permanently disabled. We had an excellent credit score. I somehow made payments on time even during my illness but when my loan was sold to this horrifying company and I asked for help with loan modification until I was well and could get back on my feet, they advised me to miss 3 payments so I could get the loan modification. I did not miss 3 in a row and my loan modification documents have been lost 3 times. In working with loan modification, I have had to start all over again and during the process I made 2 house payments of which they sent back to me in an envelope that looks like junk mail. Now they say I am 7 months behind and turned it over for foreclosure, even though the loan mod dept. said I am safe because I am working with them. I was told they would mail me new paperwork too for loan mod as my printer was broken and to this day I still have not received them by mail, since I did not trust them I had gone to the library to print out the paperwork. I am being forced to possibly go ahead and file bankruptcy in order to keep our home. Plus they are holding a check for over $3000 from my insurance company for roof repair and I can't seem to get it released besides sending them all estimates via mail and fax. I have no money for an attorney to sue them. We need a class action lawsuit going and personal attack lawsuits filed coming at them like darts. They purposely try to make you late. I am also a victim of late fees when I mailed my payment 3 weeks at the least before payment was due, they hold the checks until it is late. My nerves are shot, my time is wasted and my health is suffering due to lack of sleep. Does anyone know of any attorneys in KY willing to take them on? or of a class action lawsuit I can be a part of? They are criminals and need to be put away and we all need justice for their unfair practices!!!

Dovenmuehle is a hoax and all of you that were with MGC who are now with Dovenmuehle are here because MGC does not have a license. Ask for William Mynatt President of Dovenmuehle Mortgage. In fact write Mynatt a letter and cc all of your representatives. They are helping D Andrew Beal commit fraud.
by Kathy From New Durham, NH on February 16, 2013
Beginning in March of 2010 we have had three separate catastrophes beyond our control. We have suffered significant financial hardship as a result. We applied for a loan modification and we were denied. Theresa Orc stated that we would not be able to keep up payments within their expectations. I sent her a letter outlying the irrational notion that we would not be able to make reduced payments, when we have managed to maintain our mortgage (albeit sometimes a few days late. She has not answered my letter, nor returned any of my calls. I also requested a review of our request and an explanation of the decision made. In November 2012 I used their contact us form on their site. Pasted a copy of the letter. Still no reply. We will most likely face foreclosure at some point. This is not the company we originally mortgaged with. If given a choice, I would advise one to live in a cardboard box rather than do business with these heathens. They care nothing about the customers, file false collection claims, and seem to prefer to foreclose. That being said, as juvenile as this sounds, if we are foreclosed on, I will make damn sure it costs them more than they will ever make attempting to resell this house.

I paid off my mortgage on 8/23/12. I have talked to 17 lying people from Dovenmuehle lien servicing dept. I should have had the release of lien by the end of 9/2012. Nothing. Each person gave a complete different story than another person. Now on JAN 10, 2013 a different supervisor acknowledged that the entire lien release processing for our home is a mess. She is working with a supervisor directly from the lien release dept. They said that if they can't figure out what is happening, they will start over in processing the lien release, including contacting the county where the released lien needs to go. I want them to start over because it will take months to figure out what happened. I just want my lien released, then sent to the county to give us the deed to our home. Wish me luck because I have ZERO confidence in Dovenmuehle. There are lies, broken promises to start over, blah, blah, blah.

I am posting on this site again after 2 years. Dovenmuehle was our new loan servicer as of March 2010 We were served papers on December 2nd 2010 stating we haven't paid them since February of that year. Our Checks cashed, 6 of them for about $6,000. They wanted us to pay them again? Our Sept, Oct. checks were never cashed and were out their all that time? They Finally came back to us after several weeks. We were about to pay Nov. and that's when coincidentally on the same day we were served those checks came back. Also stating with those two, we owed them $8,000. We began to wonder why? So thinking it was the right thing to do, we hired an attorney as suggested. We didn't want to handle it ourselves seeing we are talking about a home. Now after two years we WILL be losing our home! Can't even believe it! So much for the # spent on an attorney! We have lived here 19 years, and now have NOTHING to show for it! I feel for EVERYONE here who has had problems with such a horrible company. It's been SO stressful to deal with. On top of that, I guess it contributed to my recent health problems as well as a stay in the hospital, in which a few health problems were diagnosed. Now I have a HUGE medical bill. My wife and myself have to now try and put this behind us. We will. I refuse to let Dovenmuehle ruin the rest of my life. I just wish Karma on those dumb asses who made the mistake. It has taken a toll on our marriage as well put a lot of strain on our daughter's well being also. So we have to look at this whole mess as "It's just a house" Our health and family is what is important. So screw you Dovenmuehle if you read this! We now are on the road to recovery. And this will make us stronger! It would be easy to except this foreclosure if I simply didn't pay my mortgage. But to be put out of your home because they either screwed up or intentionally caused this is a hard one to swallow.

by Anonymous From Keene, NH on October 23, 2012
This company takes payments that make to the loan and applies them as "additional principle" therefore making you look past due, then charges a late fee and then you still "owe" the $1200 you just paid plus the next months bill. So they expect you to just pull another $1200 out you bum,! They are A-Holes!

by jj From Vancouver, WA on July 06, 2012
I feel sad for all of us. We have absolutely NO IDEA where we, or our loan, stands. We know we're not current because they said to "miss 3 payments so we would qualify for modification". The Modification was denied, and they wouldn't let us pay the due three payments because THEY HAD TO HAVE PAYMENT IN FULL AND THEY HAD ADDED OVER $20,000 IN "FEES". No calls, no letters, no anything. The new Fed law about "face to face" meeting = well, they didn't even have the intention,the knowledge,or the follow through. So, once again, we have no idea where we stand. We'll probably be on the street soon if they are as bad as you all say. Anyone got a couch we can sleep on. Poor us.

Dovenmuehle is the worst company in the entire world. I have never been past due on a payment. I have a tornado damage roof and they have my insurance money and will not release funds. There should be a law against Dovenmuehle I will get a lawyer and put a 19th century company under. Where is the CEO. U assume lodging in a property paid by my interest money. Not for long!

We had to move in with my husband's grandmother after two hospital stints last year. With the market being as horrible as it's been in the Sacramento region in general we new our only choice was to short sale. We listed our home right away and had at least five very qualified buyers with accepted offers over the course of seven months and wouldn't you know each one of them either pulled out because of the hassle of working with Dovenmuehle or because this mortgage company found away to decide after offer approval that they would back out for some reason that made no sense. Our realtor who was excellent with working on short sales could not believe the stuff they pulled. My question is...isn't this mortgage fraud because it seems like they were just going through the motions to collect the PMI? Also, worried that we were headed to foreclosure my husband called daily to try to figure out a way to salvage our credit or get some assistance such as "deed in lieu" or anything and they would just transfer him to their "foreclosure attorney" who would say "this case is closed, you need to speak to them". Then just to add insult to injury, they changed the locks so we could not get the remaining items that we left in the house for "staging purposes" to make the house look nice for potential buyers as well as making it look lived in. My husband called and they wouldn't even let us have our stuff back.

This company does suck. I also tried for a loan modification and was denied. We weren't even asking for a lower finance rate. We just wanted to be able to make two smaller monthly payments, because we now get paid biweekly. They are rude on the phone and make you fell like scum for asking for help.

My mortgage was sold to this company when the originating bank was bought out. I have tried many times to work with them (well actually, they had me work with TIB). I was behind on my mortgage and I made a full month's payment on TIB's website. 3 weeks later the payment was returned to me. I contacted the BBB of Dallas regarding the return of the payment which prompted a call from TIB Corporate Headquarters. The representative asked for some additional documentation for the loan modification, which I provided via email that same day. I also asked this representative, what options would I have if the loan modification wasn't approved. He stated that as he was with Corporate they had more options available to him to help prevent foreclosure. However, they are still "reviewing" my loan modification request and I have received a foreclosure notice. TIB Corporate office is not returning my calls nor my e-mails.
by Qiana Marinni From Trenton, NJ on January 20, 2012
when i first got behind on my payments which was only one or two payments they told me to apply for a loan modification and by the time i got my denial from them my payments added up which put me further behind. i explained my situation had changed and they didn't care they went on to the foreclosure proceedings , i had also did 2 special forbearance and was still denied the modification. so i am really confused about what is going on.

I am self employed and have not been able to pay myself every month as I have allot of time and money invested in my company. I also have allot invested in my home. I am a hard working american man trying to do the best I can to provide for my family. I fell behind on my mortgage and now it's been over 2 years fighting with this company. No help from them and dragging me along worried sick that they are going to take everything I've worked so hard for my whole life. This is my retirement plan. My home. Goes to show hard work doesn't pay off in the end when you have scum like this company. Not helping you when you need it the most. Good job DC bail out some more corrupt corporate idiots while the rest starve.
by Jill From Santa Rosa, CA on January 16, 2012
I am submitting this review and complaint of Dovenmuehle Mortgage regarding the treatment I received while dealing with their customer service department and their lack of up to date options for making mortgage payments in a timely manner. After refinancing of my mortgage this last fall of 2011, I was notified that Dovenmuehle would service it. My previous mortgage had been held with an institution that provided on-line services for making the monthly mortgage payments. Apparently, Dovenmuehle does not offer this service. I received a booklet from Dovenmuehle with monthly coupons, which were to be included with my check for payment and sent through the mail. I have always paid my mortgage on time and have never received a late charge. I take my financial responsibilities very seriously and have always maintained a high credit rating between 700-830. I used the last payment stub in November of 2011 and did not receive a new booklet for making my December payment. My mortgage is due before the 16th of every month. Concerned that I had not received the payment coupons by Dec. 13th I called Dovenmuehle customer service to find out how I should proceed to make my payment. The representative told me I to ahead and mail the payment without the coupon since I still had time before it would be considered a late payment. She made no mention that the postal date would not be considered as a valid attempt to pay nor did she give any other options for making this payment, i.e.: over the phone (to which Dovenmuehle attaches a fee of $9.00). Therefore, I mailed it that day so I would be sure to have the postal mark provide evidence that I had mailed it before the 16th of the month. A week later I received an undated letter from Dovenmuehle stating that I had been delinquent on my December payment, a late fee was charged and the letter instructed me to contact them right away. I called immediately to find out if indeed they had received my check and to find out why it had been considered late. I spoke with Roseanna, a representative of Dovenmuehle. Trying to explain the situation, she abruptly cut me off, said the late fee was applicable, that the payment was not processed until Dec. 20th and there were other options I failed to use in making the payment on time. I was stunned by her extreme rudeness along with her accusations that I made no attempt to avoid the late charge. I explained that in my prior conversation the Dovenmuehle representative had suggested mailing my payment and had never advised me of alternate ways to make payment before the deadline due date. Roseanna, continuing with her rude tone advised me that she could waive the late fee THIS one time only, that if I were to ever be late AGAIN this courtesy would not apply, those were the TERMS of the loan. I made the last two months of payments without the coupons because Dovenmuehle was two months behind in getting me the payment booklet. This is the company I have entrusted with my largest investment, through no choice of my own. It is obvious to me that Dovenmuehle has glaring back office inefficiencies, poorly trained personnel, supports the practice of "payment delay" by not providing their customers with timely payment coupons, charge a fee for over the phone payments and fail to provide on-line payment services. All this actually punishes the customer for trying to make "in good faith" mortgage payments. I will be submitting this letter to all the appropriate Federal and State Agencies, The Better Business Bureau, Bureau of Consumer Affairs and as many on-line complaint sites as possible.

After reading all the above comments, I now see that we are not alone in the way we have been treated and what they have done to our credit rating. Mutual of Omaha was our loan company and servicing was taken over by Dovenmuehle. Mutual of Omaha should be ashamed of their company for having this company represent them.

After reading several of the reviews about this company, I am NOT surprised. When we asked for a modification on our loan, we found out they added $25,000.00 to our loan, lowered our monthly payment by $40.00, and they still have tried to foreclose on our home. This company doesn't care about people that need there understanding. The Obama (HAMP) program is not followed by these people at all. We are barely making because of them. They will not work with you, and WILL NOT take partial payments. It is ALL or NOTHING. Then.... when you are in foreclosure, they work with a company that takes up to a week to get you the amount you owe to bring your loan current. WE NEED HELP!!! Someone out there must see this mortgage company is doing things against the law to their mortgage borrowers. So sad. Everyone works so hard for their homes, for this company to take take them away with a snap of the fingers. so SAD!!!

This is the absolute worst company I have ever dealt with in my life. I can't believe that the board members and president of the company would want their names associated with this company.

They are criminals and whatever government agency monitors these companies should do something about it!

My mortgage was sold to Dovenmuehle when my regional state bank was taken over by another institution. My spouse has chronic medical conditions & has been unable to work. I try to pay the mortgage on time but when I have difficulty I had always been able to work with my previous lender. Not these guys. When I call they refer me to their collection department of TIB. Very frustrating as I'm trying to work with then and they send me to another company, Last week, I received a call from TIB regarding my late payment and I told them I would be able to give them a partial payment. I was told they did not accept partial payments by a very rude individual. Seems they would be glad to get any payments at all in this economy.

After living with this nightmare for almost 2 years and trying to get a loan mod for over a year, piles of paperwork, a lost payment from 2009, sleepless nights, my "Loan Mod" and guess what all they did was lower the interest 3/4 of a percent kept me on a 3 year arm, added $10,000 to my loan, and in 3 years my loan adjusts up to 14.4% interest. I am done filing bankruptcy on this place and getting out. I have paid them thousands of dollars in extra money for a escrow shortage, cannot get a print of my escrow from them, there is no one to help AS THEY ARE PRIVATELY OWNED!

Our mortgage servicer switched to Dovenmuehle in the spring of this year. We were served foreclosure papers recently stating we haven't paid our mortgage since February. 2010! Well, that is the first we had heard anything about non-payment! Jeez...They cashed our checks each month and that amount was taken out of our checking account so how would we know about there screw up??? We have the checks and bank statements to prove that. Now we are going to take this matter to court. It's been VERY upsetting having to deal with this mistake! It's also on "public & court records" that we are in default. We have had letters from attorneys and investors about our "assumed" situation... This is not a little mistake, it is a slam to our credit, emotional wel being and character. There is no excuse on Dovenmuehle's part for being so negligent!
by fed up From Wauconda, IL on December 16, 2010
We have been paying our mortgage only to find out our payments were not going to our account! We were served a summons this month from an attorney representing LNV corporation stating that we owe 9 thousand dollars and haven't paid since February. 2010. Who the hell is LNV!? never knew they were involved. We thought we had MGC mortgage. LNV has filed a complaint to foreclose the mortgage. You would think that a company would at least be in contact with the borrower! No letters or phone calls!!! The last time we spoke to someone was about a year ago about a loan mod. I have been unemployed for over a year and have this to deal with as well. So now we have filed an appearance in the courts and sent a copy to LNV's attorneys, who then will set up a court date. We were at an incredibly good attorneys office yesterday and have learned allot! You would not believe the things the lender will or won't do just so that you don't qualify for loans etc. They actually try and get you out of your home! That probably explains while this Summer i was at my neighbors house and saw someone drive up and take a picture of our property! They had already started their procedures and assumed we were well behind in our payments. It seem that the problem starts back in march when one of the only letters we have received was that Dovenmuehle was the new servicer of the loan. I recently went to our bank and got copies printed out of the front and back of the checks proving they were deposited. I will have to be patient and let this play out in court. I wish it could be solve right now. It has elevated my blood pressure and has been on my mind almost every waking hour! I feel for each and everyone of you that is going through the BULL that Dovenmuehle has caused them. It is hard to believe that there are companies that treat customers as such!!! Lets hope somehow this company gets put out of business!!!

Dovenmuehle has screwed me in the same ways... Saying I missed payments when I didn't, making me pay them anyway to keep my home out of foreclosure, and then slamming me with an outrageous "escrow shortage" of $1200. I think it's called Predatory lending, where they want to take your house if it's got allot of appreciation. I found these lawyers who filed a suit against Dovenmuehle. It sounds like they will represent me on a contingency basis which means I don't have to fork out any cash to them unless they win my case, which is good because after paying Dovenmuehle all this extra money, I have no money...

Dovenmuehle Mortgage is simply the worst mortgage company, PERIOD. We got a loan modification and we made the payments faithfully. We noticed that a payment didn't get processed and tried to call. No one answered the phone until about the 10th time (went to general VM). As a result, the error wasn't corrected and they proceeded to foreclose and had their henchmen (attorneys) to buffalo me by putting it up for auction! I suggest that everyone stop paying Dovenmuehle Mortgage and let them feel the wrath!

My mortgage was sold to Dovenmuehle, from the first day the escrow payment was incorrect. They refused to correct it saying they will not modify any escrow. They started charging additional hazard insurance through escrow even though my insurance was prepaid 14 months in advance !!

My mortgage company was sold to Dovenmuehle years ago and I have never been so dissatisfied with a company like I have been with them. I received a payment book on August. 13 telling me my mortgage would go up almost $100 beginning Sept. 1st. WTW? I called to ask them about this and the lady didn't want to discuss it with me and told me an analysis was mailed out on July 31 that I never received. I spoke with someone about a repayment plan and thought I had it squared away and to my surprise 8 months later I was notified that I was 4 months behind on my payment. Mind you I was making payment every month and had my documentation to prove it but since they were threatening me with foreclosure I didn't think time was on my side so I had to make the 4 months of payment within 2 days. I'm so frustrated with this company and I don't know what to do. Rude, unprofessional, appears to encourage customers to foreclose on their homes. Any suggestions about what I should do. I do admit my credit score isn't the best but I have tried to work with this company for years and it has been a brick wall.

My mortgage was sold to Dovenmuehle Mortgage by Golden First Mortgage and I have never dealt with so many rude, unprofessional, and low down individuals. I was going through a loan modification with them and I believe that they wanted no more than me to foreclose on my home. You call and the phone would place you on hold for as long as an hour or more. Sometimes it would ring several times only for it to pick up and then you get a dial tone. Everyone transfers you to anyone but who you need to speak with. Finally after I had been going through this modification with loss mitigation for 15 months, my modification was approved and my loan was sold on the same day. After the loan being sold I was thinking that the new mortgage payment was still in effect, come to find out they did not even transfer it. When I called to speak with them about the modification approval, I was told that no one could speak with me because Dovenmuehle no longer had my account. Luckily I had ALL of my paper work and the new mortgager mirrored the approved loan. Dovenmuehle plays games with you!!! Stay on top of them weekly they are HORRIBLE and should not be in business.

They posted it the wrong account. THey posted wrong account # on check. They got more money from our checking account then payment was to be. I made copies of our cancelled checks for the last 2 payments. Spent $9.00 to fax all this to them for them to investigate their mess up. Today we got a letter that says it might take up 60 days to investigate this matter.

We were able to set up electronic payments through our credit union. Never been late on payment. I agree we all should file a class action law suit.

Just found out on November 28th that our mortgage was sold by our local bank (that we have been doing business with for 30 years) to this Dovenmuehle Mortgage Company effective December 1st. We got two days notice - over the Thanksgiving Holiday, with no time react or no choice to seek out another bank on our own. I am really frightened by what I am reading here, and I don't think I am going to like this at all. My mortgage is due on the first, but they do not take electronic payments, so I just don't know what I am going to do. With the economy so bad and my husband just getting bank to work, we cant refinance because of time on the job and debt to income ratio is not good. He worked for another company for 34 years and then the great day of change - Inauguration Day - he was laid off so needless to say he took a big cut in pay. How can things like this be happening to us in America!! The great land of opportunity - yea for who?? Certainly not for the working class. This really sucks!!!! There has got to be something that can be done. Maybe a class action suit. Seems like there is enough people to get one going. Anyone out there know how to get one started??

I have tried to make payments even though I am divorced and getting no support from my ex. I have run into a hard time and have sent payments by priority mail to be there by the 15th.It is there however it is still late. Found out that they had a special agreement with the post office to hold the mail to be delivered to the overnight mail address and they would send a private company to pick it up. The private company would come to the post office at 5 - 5:30 a.m. and the mail for them had not even been sorted yet - my payments were being recorded at being late. What a ripoff. I would call to see if they had received my check and they had it and had already deposited it but told me that they had not received it and I would have to pay another late fee.

My mortgage was raised just prior to them selling my account to Dovenmuehle, and as soon as they got my account it was raised again in less than a month( three times in a year) Customer service is the worst, and they are the biggest stallers in the world.

My loan was sold to Dovenmuehle just prior to closing. They were late in making my first tax payment at which point it took forever to get to the bottom of it. But believe me I gave them hell. Most recently (nearly three years later) I was a day or two late in making a payment, they wasted no time in sending me a late fee charge.

other Mortgage companies try to help you with deferrments and things of that nature. Dovenmuehle will not defer anything. I was put on a payment plan until I became current in which I made payments on time each months for nine mos. Dovenmuehle reported me consecutively late for all those nine mos. to the credit agencies as if I were not making those payments on time. this has really lowered my credit score with lenders and making it look like I do not pay my debts timely. contacted Dovenmuehle to discuss how can I get some credit by making the repayment plan payments on time. And was told there is nothing that can be done. Trying to refinance with another company but I don't look credit worthy because of Dovenmuehle. This company really SUCKS.

When I ask to speak to manager they put me on hold and when manager comes on after a long time they will check but nothing gets done in the meantime I have individuals calling me late at night using scare tactics and sending me notices about late fees and claiming they can foreclose.

I used to work with this company and all i have to say watch your back if you end up having a loan serviced by them. This is a private company so it is not regulated, the owner has no social skills, treats his employees as bad as he treats the homeowner, by cursing, being rude and having no compasion. I the 2 years i have workwed with this company i have seen so many ilegal things going on and so little in trying to help the homeowners. Most of the time their principal is if we can hit them with a fee go for it. As I said earlier watch your back, if my mortgage would end up with them I would refinance the next day.

This company kept mailing me notices stating that we had to get more more insurance coverage then we had, even though we had the coverage we needed per our insurance company. They wanted us to insure the land, which makes no sense, if the house burns down the land is still there. I had to call several time to get this straightened out and finally got a manager who said I was all set. When I asked her if she had even looked at my account information she hadn't...how on earth would she know if I was all set if she had not even looked at my account!! When you speak to them, document dates and times that you spoke with people and names of who you spoke with. Be very persistent on the phone. They will try to tell you it's a long wait to talk to a manager, but sya you will wait and a manager gets on the phone in a few minutes. Don't give up.

Dovenmuehle Mortgage is a horrible mortgage company. They hold my payment up to 10 days before posting it to my account and then send foreclose notices.

My mortgage was sold to Dovenmuehle by another lender that I was happy doing business with. I called Dovenmuehle to notify them that I was having some financial problems and that my mortgage payment would probably be a little late. I received nothing but grief from the person on the other end of the line. She told me that the mortgage company would not extend my payments, would not work with me to make any kind of payment plan, and that if I didn't have my payment in before the end of the month that they would automatically attempt to collect. How's that for customer service. It seems to me that this company is in the habit of buying up mortgages and ruining the home owner experience for everyone that they do business with.

All they do is send letters out saying that they are going to forclose and will help. They promised they would grant me an extention, but didnt. They are not working with us at all. I am 2 payments behind.

I am a mortgage broker and business is very slow. I have a balance of less than $3,000 on my mortgage and I was 3 payments behind. After being 1 payment behind, I was told that I would qualify for a "work out" where the payments would be extended due to my small balance. I was waiting for the "paperwork" so that I could extend 3 payments, but instead I received a foreclosure notice. THIS WAS AFTER I WAS TOLD OVER THE PHONE THAT I WAS GUARANTEED AN EXTENSION. They wanted the 3 payments I was behind plus the one payment that was not even due yet. It was very difficult for me to get the money together because due to the economy no one has any money to lend me. Fortunately, a friend helped me out and I send in a cashier's check by overnight delivery to cover the delinquent payments that they said would get extended.

I send all of my payments certified mail. It cast 2.35 a month at the post office, but when collects calls I can prove that my payment was received on time and there had better not be any late fees

Unfortunately, Countrywide sold my mtg note off to Dovenmuehle. Payment options stink; no on-line option and phone pay is pricey. You are forced into auto w/d or mailing a pmt. I received a monthly shortage charge on my account without any clear explanation - terrible.

I absolutely hate this company. Mortgage was sold unfortunately and all I have received were late fees though my payments are mailed 2 1/2 weeks prior to late day. Do not process payments on a timely basis and then charge late fees???

No way to pay on-line but they charge a large fee to do it by phone. That is a rip off!Customer service is awful. I wish they would sell my loan.

For some reason you are showing up in my credit report and I have never dealt with your company. Please remove this or prove to me that I have had business with you.

Unresponsive, difficult to deal with, tries to run up costs, would not do business with Dovenmuehle Mortgage if my mortgage hadn't been sold to them.

Very unprofessional. Dovenmuehle Mortgage sends statements out in the middle of the month and then calls and harasses you for payment, and also charges late fees on top.

Paid off mortgage with Dovenmuehle Mortgage on 2 February 2007. As of 24 August 2007 still have not received the deed or other pay-off documents even after numerous phone calls. Totally ignored two inquiries by the BBB.

Dovenmuehle Mortgage is the worst mortgage company that I have ever dealt with in 35 years of home ownership. They are non responsive and very unprofessional. Surprised they are still in business.
by David Dunham From Bostic, NC on July 18, 2007
I have found Dovenmuehle Mortgage to be rude and very un-compassionate....as well as very unprofessional in their treatment of mortgagees.
