Instead he pro longed it a whole month of telling me he could help me and then once I did everything he asked be switched up and told me he just couldn’t help me. He also had all of my boyfriends paper work..he gets 1099 and he knew he didn’t have it a full year and still ran his credit…leaving a hard inquiry knowing he couldn’t help him..I really had such positive thoughts be could help me and my family but instead he talked it all up. If he tells you that you won’t get calls from other mortgage company’s he’s also a liar."
