REOPro - Real Estate Default Professionals

America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals

Greetings Everyone!

 

I was contacted by Banker REO to sign up for BPO and REO Assignments, for a $345 annual membership fee.  I didn't find any posts for this company, so I thought we better get this one out there!  I did a WHOIS search for this company's website and it shows that it was created on June 14, 2011, and they are based out of Illinois ... the same state as the infamous Absolute REO!  There website address is: www.bankerreo.com  Does anyone have any experiences that they would like to share with this one?

 

Thank you!

Hi, I too was scammed by Absolute Reo,  I have tried to contact them NO luck. If any one has some contact information let me know.  

Just today I got my call. $350 for a lifetime...2 listings waiting for me on Monday.  Nice guy... I asked him to email me the information because I was driving in my car. I wanted to buy some time to check it out. Glad I did.  To good to be true and that red flag is waving.  We should have some fun here.  He is calling me tomorrow. Any ideas?

I filed a complaint with the BBB, when I got scammed by ABS... Perhaps that will get your money back, even tho their BBB status has been revoked.

I just cancelled.  ---------------------------

Mike,
I am on the phone with my card company currently. At my request Chase Credit Card Services has voided the the tranaction noted below. I was advised that should the merchant (BankerREO) attempt the repost the payment their dispute dept. will take up the issue on my behalf.
Under the 72 rule for buyer's remorse, I am canceling or business arrangement. I do not intend to work with or for BankerREO and ask that you cease and desist collections immediately.
Thank you and best wishes.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT!!! I GOT A CALL FROM THIS VINCE CLOWN THIS AFTERNOON. I WENT TO REO PRO TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE HAD TO SAY. I TOLD HIM I WAS IN A BAD AREA FOR CELL RECEPTION WHEN HE CALLED AND TO SEND ME AN EMAIL. NOW I SEE IT WAS HIM AND NOT ME. WOW, ARE THIS PEOPLE WORKING OUT OF A HOMELESS SHELTER? I TAKE THAT BACK, THAT IS AN INSULT TO THE POOR HOMELESS PEOPLE. I TOO GOT SUCKERED BY ABSOLUTE LAST YEAR. THE REP CALLED RIGHT AS MY PLANE WAS BOARDING AND I QUICKLY GOT SIGNED UP WHILE BEING DISTRACTED BY THE PLANE.I CHECKED REO PRO AND SAW WHAT EVERYONE WAS SAYING AND DEMANDED A REFUND. I DID GET MOST OF MY MONEY BACK(THEY KEPT $100)AFTER BEING THREATENING TO THEM. I HAVE DECIDED TO DONATE SOME MONEY TO REO PRO TO SAY THANKS FOR CREATING THIS FORUM. AS MOST REO AGENTS WILL AGREE, WE ARE ALONE. MANY, NOT ALL AGENTS, DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SHORT SALE OR AN REO,  ARE JEALOUS OF US AND THINK WE DO SOME RAIN DANCE AND LISTINGS MAGICALLY FALL INTO OUR LAPS. THE INSTITUTIONS WE WORK FOR, WELL SOME ARE GREAT AND OTHERS, EH, NOT SO MUCH. IT IS NICE TO HAVE THIS FORUM; THAT'S ALL......
got the call yesterday.  I didn't feel good about it.  After grilling the guy (Mike) for 1/2 hour I made him say "Troy, you can trust me."  Told him the same stories- how we have enough work from companies not asking for $ first.  Bottomline-  I gave him a card# and the game is on.  ?? 
OK guys you are right they are a scam I got the BPO and the 75.00 dollars paid but no listing. I did not do my homework one more time. Any way we can stop those people from scamming us. now I am 550 dollars out of my pocket with no listing. What is the solution. any other victims??Any ideas?

Well all I have to say to you is something similar to what I told another member on this forum. While it is not good that you fell for this scam you should have known better. I see you have been a member going back to around 2009. Surely you should have read similar post about scams and different companies doing this to various agents. So, just remember how eager you were to sign up and give away your hard earned money for a promise of work and take that same eagerness and call your credit card company and put a stop to this. Also do the recommended actions and file a complaint with the FTC in Illinois, and the Illinois Secretary of State. If you do not take these actions then you truly will be a victim.

Since they are crooks, we cannot really stop them. Just maintain a policy of NOT giving any money to any company which offers us work.

 

That is what I do. I figure the good companies will recognize that I am a good broker and will hire me.

I offer no excuse.  I was busy, it sounded risked, then rolled the dice.    Question: can I stop payment?  will the 72 hour buyers remorse rule work to get my money back?  Troy

If you gave a credit card YES you can.
do i call the card company or the reo co.   I guess the answer is both.
