I came here because the Arizona button didn't work. I am an appraiser an Landsafe, Countrywides appraisal management company, had me removed from their approved appraiser list after I turned in one of their loan officers for trying to get me to commit fraud on an appraisal. I have never and will never have a problem with me appraisals and do work for the FHA. I am honest and because of that they removed me. They had no reason so they made reasons up. It was ridiculous. I accused them of participating in the fraud and they said it had nothing to do with that, that my work quality was bad. My work quality has never been bad ever and they call me today and ask me if I would please do something for them because a client "needs" me, I told them no way. They are rude crooks. There isn't even anyone or anywhere for me to report the whole stupid company but they are bad news.

As a matter of fact there have been more people quit
Your Chandler Campus than are currently working there in the
last two years the telemarkting center has been open.
Face the facts. You sell the same basic loans every other major
bank sells. The difference with Crappywide is the lousy
customer service and shit head management.

Countrywide sales are on a decline. Go figure, but their profits never seem to go down. That's because their not investing enough in technology, scheming on employee bonuses, sending call centers over to India! But they must continue to invest heavily in a strong legal department. They must have the best attorneys! Hmmmm, I wonder why...

About the loan officers. Countrywide does have a lot of good loan officers. The problem is the management they work under. Countrywide has the most unethical and irresponsable managers running the sales teams. Also the underwriting and processing departments have a terrible, ineffictive, and incompetent system in place. That is very frustrating to the loan officer and the customer when a loan is trying to be done.

Do NOT use Countrywide Home Loans or Full Spectrum lending to finance your home. If you are looking for a lender that will be honest and/or professional throughout the loan process, COUNTRYWIDE is not the lender to choose. The loan officers and managers they have on staff are the most dishonorable, dishonest and unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. I have been in the real estate business for over 10 years and recently (2 months ago) financed my home with Countrywide through Full Spectrum (Montgomery, AL office). The customer service was awful. I was lied to on numerous occasions. On numerous occasions I was told that someone would call me back and I never received a return call. I was told on three separate occasions that they had all of the paperwork they needed and then asked the next day for additional documents or a letter. Each time I contacted the office to speak to someone I basically had to threaten the person that answered the phone in order for whomever I was calling for to get on the phone. To make matters worst, TWO months after closing I am STILL waiting for a copy of my appraisal that I paid $515 for(the most I have ever had to pay for an appraisal). Each time I call about it I am told "sorry I got caught up and didn't send it out the other day but I have it right here and I am overnighting it to you now. You will have it on your doorstep tomorrow. I STILL do NOT have it nor have I received a call to say why I don't have it or when I will. COUNTRYWIDE IS THE WORST COMPANY AND I WILL TELL ALL OF MY CLIENTS ABOUT THEM.

This site has been attempoted to be shut down, but the authorities found it too true and with 1000's of people ready to step up and be sworn under oath, have that Harvard Kenenedy dude go back and rescue that girl left in Chappaquitic who is now dead and f off, a true CHL person with a feable attempt at protecting the company, right on bro, hahahaah

show us one place where a COuntrywide executive or senior manager has ever taken the stand and been sworn under oath and questioned...hahahahaha , has not happened because if under oath they KNOW they are in big trouble and easily proven a bunch of criminals.

I asgree with last poster about Cali and think soon peolle like John Bianchi will go down for all his fraud and criminal actions.

Overtime is waiting for those who ask for it, just got to get the right lawyer...go get em Harvard, still in scholl and not in world yet I see...so smart can't see a damn thing.


Left: July 11, 2006 By: In:

the "Harvard" student must have takne a survey class at Countrywide university in his summer school.

I can name 4 females who were sexually harrassed in just one region, who were made to transfer, retlaiated by the HR department and as a past employee I can also say that I know a Sales Manager who was told that she could not be a Branch Manager because she was too young and that she was a female with too many emotions, not that it matters, COuntrywide hires females and males all the same, but in the end.....

The overtime claim is real real real, and if you prosecute under state laws, certain states can compell arbitration..i.e Texas ruling. If you claim Overtime in California, it is class action time, just google Countrywide Overtime settlement and read how this criminal company paid out $30 million to setle this claim when it was brought about by 3 people. The whole company origination is classified as exempt and soon the Overtime claims will be vlowing in. The Company saves somewhere between $750mil to $1bil a year not paying proper overtime.

The Company actually still denied that this was wrong and stated they though the uncertainty of the court system had them settle it etc....yeah right, no one on this earth has ever heard of a company paying out $30mil for a claim with no merit, and no still has. Show me where Countrywide has ever admitted a thing, ever, show me HArvard, where the company has admitted guilt in the public in their lifetime....never because they deny deny deny ....

I know of so many cusomters and employees who have complained, provided proof, and the company still crushed them.

I will predict that that Harvard education is really one from Countrywide, we all kn ow the company prohibits this site internally, hahahaha, they also have criminals like John Bianchi in California, criminal females like Megan Fink in San Diego.

It is so funny for the fools like Harvard to post here, sent by the company, the site is owned by a customer who complained was proven right.

This is a criminal Company right up to the legal department that protects them and writes responses of known facts that are misrepresenting the truth.

Overtime claims should be made by all present and past employees, including production managers....

Have harvard show us the settlements of ALL the Overtime claims nationwide.

I would guess that Harvard is a criminal scumbag like the rest of the COuntrywide executives and attorneys, and also beleive that Harvard has ripped off his employees, sexuallyt harrassed his employees, and committed fraud against thousands of customers...

ALL EMPLOYEES>>GP FILE FOR OVERTIME< DEMAND IT KEEP DAILY RECORDS OF YOUR TIME THERE< GO BACK NOW AND START PUTTING A CALENDAR TOGETHER OF YOUR HOURS. IF YOU ARE IN CALIFORNIA< EVEN BETTER, FIND A GOOD FIRM AS MENTIONED AND IF YOU WORKE MORE THAN 50% of your time inside selling, bing! OVERTIME!!!!

ALSO REPORT ALL FRAUD< NOT TO THE COMPANY < TO THE LOCAL FRAUD AUTHORITES AND TO THE PRESS...

JUST CALL THE BUSINESS EDITOR AND ASK FOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, PROVIDE INFO and SIT BACK AND WATCH THE COMPANY SQUJIRN OVER THEIR GREEDY GREEDY CRIMINAL WAYS.

I REPORTED FRAUD TO THE COMPANY AND WAS CRUSHED FOR IT ALTHOUGH THEY FOUND IT TO BE TRUE!!!!!! NOW THE AOUTHORITIES HAVE THE COMPLAINT>>>TIC TOC FOR THESE CRIMINALS SIGNING LOAN DOCS WHEN CUSTOMERS MISS ONE AND NOTARY FRAUD AND THE COVER UP THAT GOES ALONG WITH IT....worse than Enron!

I was a long term employee of this company that helped them make a name when they did not have one. This case has already made it throug the fed government. And now it goes to the attorneys and then it goes public. Eeryone needs to know what goes on at this company, is there still forced overtime with no pay, YES. Are they still deducting defi payments from staff, YES. Are they still discriminating against women everywhere, YES. WE ALL NEED TO SPEAK UP EVERYONE. AND IF IT TAKES EVERY LAST DIME I HAVE TO SAVE SOME OTHER INNOCENT VICTIMS FROM WHAT THEY DID TO ME I WILL.

Take the $30 million settlement in Overtime in Rosemead, CA Google it, they still wont even admit they misclassify employees, but paid out $30 mil, hahahahah , noone has ever heard of a company paying out $30mil with something that was not true...this scumbag posts here for the Company but admit, the Company hates this site, are all the people here liars???? not. If the Company was so good and clean, they wouldn't send you people from India to put viruses on this site and post the nonsense. The Companies with Underwriting in the branches are the key to fraud, to pressured approvals, but remember, Cwide audits themselves....hahahahaha, that's right audits 10% of their loans. I personally know of fraud at that Company that was covered up and not investigated further because they would find more fraud. I also know a lying peice of shit lawyer for the COmpany, many of them , who lie lie lie and just like Rosemead settlement, will get the Company deeper into the shit they swim in.

They only fire them.... everyone on this web site blames Countrywide for their lack of morals, financial management and in ability to handle themselves like adults. I guess it is easier to blame the corporation and not look at ourselves. Oh and yes of course maybe we can get some money out of a lawsuit. Good Luck and to the former employees Good riduance the best thing that could happen to Countrywide is for you to be working for our competition.

(The CA posting page is not working, so site manager said to post in other states)


I am currently employed by Countrywide and have recently experienced vile sexual harassment and financial abuse. I recently filed an HR complaint that resulted in my boss' termination. Thereafter, I was transferred for my "protection," given a position that I am lost in and did not want, and have been experiencing what I perceive to be (need to have my lingo legally appropriate) relatiatory actions on behalf of the management and executives.


I am in Southern California. I need to check with my lawyer to see if I can name the region in this forum.


I hate the company. I have been treated like a nothing and a plague. Everything the company does is with pretense and calculation. The game is being played by evil, narcissistic greed mongers. They place no value on human rights or suffering.


It seems to be common belief that the region is corrupt and just a good ole boys' club. I have heard that promotions and rewards are commonly believed to be based on long-term friendships, blackmail/bribes and (extramarital) sexual affairs. There seems to be quite a bit of evidence to support it; it just needs to be put together.


I was on a "privileged" team that virtually made its own rules and put a perverted, abusive non-supervisor in a supervisory role with me, after
(allegedly) having had notice of his past abusive behaviors. He acted as if he were above the rules, because the region had reportedly covered some of his past incidents from HR and even rehired him after he was fired by the parent company: Northwest Mortgage.


I have recently hired a lawyer to deal with executive management. I cannot say here, what it is that I seek; but we are wondering if there are any similar stories in the region that anyone can share. I specifically want to know about HLCs in supervisory roles, retaliation following HR complaints, the encouragement or discouragement of HR reporting, and any incidents that were minimized by higher-ups. My lawyer works on a contingency fee. I would never share names unless I had the express permission of the source. Even if someone can give me an idea of where else to look, it would be greatly appreciated. We'll do our own investigations. I want justice for others like me, and the company to face the consequences of their actions. I'm sticking around until it's done.


P.S. I totally agree with the previous post: CW's technology is a joke!!! The software is archaic in design and completely illogical to the user. Can't everyone see where their priorities really lie? On advertising and self-gratification! They are all about promoting an "image." Our regional VP just gave us a three hour-long seminar on how he became top producer by DECEPTION, such as making himself "Mortgage Banker of the Year," and interviewing HIMSELF for an article that he paid $5000 to publish!

THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO "JOE D" and his worthless post on June 11, THIS IS FOR ALL PRO-CW AND ANTI-CW READERS.

You don't seem to get it.

For many years Countrywide HAS BEEN #1 in customer service. But guess what? Countrywide is soon to be a HAS BEEN.

I know all this because I had just recently quit Countrywide to work for another mortgage company.

Countrywide didn't use move operations over to India, BUT NOW they do! That will be bad for customer service.

COUNTYWIDE IS NOW TOO CHEAP TO KEEP UP ON ITS COMPUTERS AND COMPUTER SYSTEMS. When I worked there, computers froze up at least 5 times a day, and application information was always getting erased.
That is why the number of customers complaining about payments has been increasing in the last few years.
That is why it is now taking Countrywide 30 to 40 days to close a loan. Also because Countrywide now has a lot of untrained, inefficient, and disorganized underwriters and processors. (Countrywide may now also be too cheap to hire an adequate staff)
That is also why payoffs and other items are now coming out wrong.

Also Countrywide requires just about all of its loan originations to use LANDSAFE appraisal, a company owned by Countrywide itself. Their appraisals are extremely conservative, and 9 out of 10 of mine and other A/Eís came in OVER $10K less than comps. Even if the home was in good condition. This forces the A/E to restructure the loan a higher rate, less cashout, fewer bills paid, or a some combination of the factors. Their appraisals set the road for disguised predatory lending, and bait and switch.

Wake up Joe D! Have you ever studied the life cycle of an organization? Check it out. It comes in four stages: Introduction, growth, maturity, and decline. Right now, Countrywide is slowing down in the growth stage about to hit maturity. The only thing holding right now is the brand name. And if Countrywide continues with its path, it will not be long until it is in its decline stage.

ENRON WAS ONCE A FORTUNE 500 COMPANY. Countrywide is riding in the same path.

Also Countrywide was recently sued in California from its conduct as an employer, and apparently it never learned from the lawsuit. Another lawsuit will happen.

Joe D. you are not in the position to call the people here "Jerk Offs". Especially if you're another goon in Countrywide's management. Because only someone in CW management would stick up for Countrywide the way you just did.

Not to meantion Joe, you posted your same pathetic post on all 50 state pages here, claiming to be from different local cities.

And to the Pro-CW idiot who keeps taking up the excessive space in the forum with blank lines. GET A LIFE LOOSER.

You will not keep others from reading the previous posts.

We had a Countrywide agent come to our home. When he showed up 45 minutes late reeking of booze he told us he had car trouble. When we sat down at the kitchen table a small glass pipe fell out of his left brest pocket. Clearly this was an instrument used to abuse drugs.

3. you now have to pay them a closeout fee for them doing nothing.
4. if you hired a candidate outside of using their services, they will charge you the full fee because you was on retainer with them.

SEC Problems for Countrywide?

When you read the quarterly and annual reports filed by Countrywide at www.secDOTgov (use the EDGAR button to navigate to their reports) one can see the true purpose of all of these games that Countrywide is playing with other people's money.

When they scam you on a forced placement policy they are "double booking" that sum. First, they are booking it as revenue since they always place coverage with one of their wholly owned subsidiary insurance companies - Balboa Insurance or Newport Insurance.

Then, they book it again on Countrywide's books as a receivable from the homeowner. When you add up the number of borrowers they have scammed with this little trick and multiply that number by $2,000, the average value of the double-booked entry, it's a large number.

When they receive a claim at their fake insurance company, they defraud the homeowner by retaining a huge portion of the settlement for "fees" and if and when they ever actually do remit the funds to the homeowner, they have kept and used the funds for months or years.

Countrywide is a fascinating operation. When cornered in a foreclosure proceeding recently, and challenged under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Countrywide's documented response was to immediately "transfer" the loan to Banker's Trust NA which then ignored the demands under the FDCPA and tried to proceed to sell the property.

What they got instead, although they have not yet felt it, is a ball-peen hammer between the noggin down at the SEC.

These good 'ol boys running Countrywide have been signing these SEC reports with their accounting scams included, under the criminal penalty of Sarbanes Oxley for quite a while now.

Want to let Countrywide feel a little of your pain? Use the SEC's online fraud reporting feature to complain about their rigged accounting. Do that and before long, we will all get to enjoy the Executive Staff and several Board members doing a little shuffle called "the perp walk."

These people are why we build and maintain prisons. They are nothing but criminals, running a crooked little scam and injuring thousands of people, little powerless people, everyday.

Fight back. Send email to the SEC demanding an investigation of their accounting. Send letters to their "Audit Committee," you can find their names on Countrywide's website under "Corporate Governance."

Complain to your State Attorney General and especially to the California AG's office.

You know, after reading all these complaints I must say I wish I had the internet when I financed my house...

Let me tell you a story, last year I got laid off for the 4th time in as many tears. I have owned my home for over 20 years and paid on time every single month until last year. This hit an all time low. Between collage tuitions and rate hikes I missed a payment. I was 1 month behind for about 2 months but caught up last September. We then paid every month since. Well here is what Countrywide did.

In October of 2005 I got a notice from the sheriff that my house was in foreclosure. We called the bank to find out why. The lady on the phone said it was just a formality to Service men and women to be aware and give them time to catch up. My wife said we did catch up last September and that I received a letter to that affect, she said OK I'll put a not you called and I'm sure things will be straightened out. 1 week went by and still no answer. We called back and they told us to disregard the notices and that we are up to date.

Note: we were only behind 1 month in 20 years...

Christmas time, a relative pulled me aside and said my house was in the news paper and that it was to be auctioned off. I never received a call from Countrywide, a letter or anything. If my sister didn't see it in the newspaper I would never had known! We called the bank the following day and the lady on the phone said not to worry we will straighten it out. 3 days before the auction was suppose to happen, no calls from Countrywide, no letters, NOTHING, a man came to my house to look it over he was interested in buying it. Needless to say I hit the roof. That same day people came in my yard and started taking pictures. I let my dogs out after that. We called a lawyer. To make a long story short my lawyer handled the whole thing and the auction was canceled.

END OF STORY... NOT!

They did it again!!!!!! A man came to my house and said he was interested in buying my property at the auction in March, I received NO paper work, sheriffs visit, bank rep.... NOTHING! AND MY PAYMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE!!!!!!

Time to contact the lawyer again... the saga continues, I will let you know what happens or keep an eye on the news!

Its really not like you have much choice it seems to me. I am in a bid war with Sun Trust and Country Wide for my Re-fi. Countyr Wide has offered a 1 % lower rate and $2,300 less on closing than Sun Trust. Sun Trust admits that it is possible they may transfer the loan to other parties as they desire. I asked who would be likely to assume it.....Sun Trusts answer.....Country Wide. Apparently Sun Trust does over 300 million in business with Country Wide....so it really don't matter...its going to Country Wide one way or another, might as well secure the best rate and terms. Two employees that work with me have had there mortgages with Country Wide for 2 and 3 yrs. with no complaints...so far.

On November 21, 2005, I sent Countrywide an insurance check for $23,294.48 for repairs done on my house after a storm. The work was fully complete and the contractor paid out of some extra funds I just happened to have. The person told me to expect a 5 to 7 day turn around on the check. After not recieving anything for a couple of weeks, I called back and they assured me that it was being handled and I should recieve something shortly. By the end of December, I finally talked to Chrystal Sisk and she told me she would personally handle the situation and on January 19, 2006, I recieved $7000 of the $23,294.48, leaving a balance of 16,294.48. After many calls and faxes, on January 30, 2006, I recieved a check for $1294.48 after being assured that the full amount was being sent. This left a balance of $15,000 which Countrywide admitted to sending to a wrong address in Louisanna (I live in Alabama). Yet, due the COUNTRYWIDES mistake, they want me to wait another month before a re-issue of a check will be done. I am forwarding this email to every banking regulatory body I can find until my issue is resolved.

Foti investigating complaints against Calif. mortgage company
12/29/2005, 6:07 p.m. CT
The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) ó The state attorney general's office is investigating a California-based mortgage company following complaints that the firm has taken too long to release insurance money meant for Louisiana residents whose homes were damaged by hurricanes.

The company, Countrywide Home Loans Inc., issued a statement acknowledging the delays but blaming them on the high volume of insurance claim checks required after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The number of checks overwhelmed the company's system, the statement said.

"This created unfortunate and unusual delays to some of our customers for a period of several weeks," the company said.

Over a dozen formal complaints have been filed with Attorney General Charles Foti's office, alleging that Countrywide has received insurance money meant for homeowners needing to repair their homes, but held on to the cash for an unreasonable amount of time, Foti spokeswoman Kris Wartelle said.

Many such insurance checks require a signature both from the homeowner and the mortgage company before the homeowner can receive the cash. One Louisiana homeowner told investigators that Worldwide held his $111,000 in insurance payments for more than a month, forcing him to produce $50,000 to pay contractors repairing his storm-damaged home, Wartelle said.

The Countrywide statement said the company has caught up with the flow of checks, which "are now being processed in a timely manner."


Countrywide is a subsidiary of Calabasas, Calif.-based Countrywide Financial Corp.

I agree with the poster from September regarding Countrywide in Atlanta. The area is being poorly managed and grossly neglected. They are treating their loan officers badly and that will only result in bad service being passed on to the consumer. Other mortgage companies (like the ones leading the Atlanta market) are doing the right thing. The "other" companies have style and class and they a great deal more about the consumer than they do commiting fraud so that another middle-aged balding manager can drive a Hummer.

Dr. Dyer replied," how are the people where you're from"? they replied the people from Arizona are rude and back stabbers. Dr. Dyer said well they're like that here too.

Then there was this other couple who asked him the same question. "How are people here", he said how are the people where you're from"? They said, people from Ohio are warm, nice, giving, and happy. Then Dr. Dyer said, they're like that here too.

Hopefully, most of you got it and those who didn't will continue living a wasted life. Live with Passion! Go Countrywide.

I don't know about all the name calling, etc. but one thing is certain. Something bad has happened to Countrywide in Atlanta and there won't be an end until it's destroyed. Someone hired people to run this part of the company that either have no interest in the company or just simply aren't qualified to run a company. There is no profit being made and everyone is unhappy -- customers and employees. Seems like a recipe for disaster. Sit back and watch it fall. Maybe a year, maybe not that long. They'll be gone, someone new will be along or they can close down Atlanta altogether. I don't think Atlanta would be missed by the rest of Countrywide.

Just came home a winner. YES, it is VERY easy to sue thru small claims court. Each time, each month for being wrong by Countrywide. In Florida, up to $ 5,000.00. To start, I visited my local court house and found it to be very fair. In my case, the judge listen and look at the proof I had in my file. It was informal, cheap and quick. THANKS to this complaint center, I WON. Good luck to all.

I am a former employee of Countrywide, sorry but I have to laugh at all of these stories, yes COuntrywide has it's problems, just like all the other lenders out there, but most of the problems being stated here are mostly due to homeowner error not lender error, there are alot of laws that Countrywide has to follow, so if you think they can just wipe your credit score clean, or take fees off, that's where you are wrong, it's sad to see ignorant people cause concern for others who know what there doing by trying to bring a company down, it is not right and people need to take responsibility for themselves instead of trying to get through life easier and blaming all their problems on somebody else, when you have a problem in life you must look at yourself first to see what you did to cause it, then correct it, not put full blame on another. In other words pay attention to yourself and see your wrongs before you give a bad rep on a company who tries hard to serve MILLIONS of customers and make sure there is no problems.

Actually, I am a former Countrywide employee and have worked for several large lending institutions. Is this lawsuit your own? If so, I'd watch what you say and write in public venues because anyone with a half-ass lawyer could counter sue you for slander and liable for making the unfounded statements you've made here. If you can back up what you are saying, go to the news media. That's what I'd do. You say they sent back your payments? Where did you mail them? Did you have the proper postage? No lending institution is going to refuse your payment unless you haven't made one in a long time. By the way, if you read my post, I left my personal e-mail so people can contact me for help. I know Countrywide's policies and procedures. I'm more than happy to help anyone I can get out of a bad situation, not like the creator of this website with a link to a company being investigated in the state of Illinois for violations of state lending regulations.
