Robert Palmer, President of RP Funding warns WESH-2 viewers to watch out for HARP Scams.

According to Robert Palmer, President of RP Funding a great way to avoid mortgage scams is to check complaint histories on a company and do research online for complaints. If a company is trying to run a scam, be cautious - don't pay upfront lock-in or appraisal fees unless you are dealing with a reputable lender. Search for Customer Reviews, Complaints and Scams before selecting a lender.

RP Funding does not offer HARP loans at this time, this information is for educational purposes only.
