Quick Loan Funding Exec Gets Help from Citigroup While Leaving Others to Twist in the Wind

The “little man” whose taxes are bailing out Wall Street giant Citigroup is getting a boot in the face when it comes to loan modifications. But at the same time Citigroup is bending over backwards to help the owner of Quick Loan Funding, the subprime lender whose risky lending practices contributed to Citigroup’s near collapse.

Daniel Sadek, founder of Quick Loan Funding, got an offer from Citi Residential Lending to modify its loan terms when he fell behind on his mortgage payments at 65 Briar Lane in Irvine, which may not even be his primary residence. He never made one payment on the new loan and on December 18, 2008 City filed a Notice of Default against Sadek.

On the other hand, Dave Karecki, 47, has been unable to get lenders Citi and Countrywide to modify $420,000 in mortgages on his Norco home after he lost his job and his wife’s hours were cut back on her job as a teaching aide. Their home is now worth approximately half of what they paid for it.

“They’re not working with us,” Karecki said. “My frustration is I call back and call back and get a different person every time and they tell me to refax everything. It’s an absolute circus.”
