No Loan Modifications or Refunds for Investors Finance Inc. Customers

William Becerra and Heather Molinari are two distressed homeowners who would not recommend Investors Finance, Inc. Both paid the Rancho Bernardo-based company upwards of $1,400 to help them restructure their loan payments. They also say they got no help from the firm or its owner Michael Monaco and neither got a refund when they requested it.

Monaco, who, according to an article in the San Diego Union Tribune, has been sued at least six times (lost two cases, settled two, two are pending), was ordered by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE) in August to stop taking upfront payments. According to the article, Michael Monaco states he has restructured Investors Finance, Inc. with a plan to get the borrowers to sign over their homes to him, which he will then lease back to them at a lower payment. Sounds scary! Company files from a former sales agent do not show any completed loan modifications.
