    Live Well Financial

    Hi there

    Has anybody had dealings with 'Live Well Financial'? (http://www.livewellfinancial.com/). A company that provides reverse mortgages to senior citizens...

    They're advertizing loan officer positions that sound (and probably are) too good to be true.

    Thanks

    Saw this as well, and just wondered what your experience has been if you pursued it?

    I didn't see the exact nature of their offer on their website. What are they offering to LOs?

    The BBB has received complaints regarding Live Well Financial. Complaints on file are not a result of customer issues concerning reverse mortgages, but rather concern employees who have contracted with the company to do marketing on their behalf by purchasing sales leads. Complaints to BBB allege delays in receiving leads, the quality of delivered leads and billing errors that have resulted from the purchase of leads. These issues have resulted in refund requests by former employees.

    The company has responded to complaints by stating that some complainants have resigned from the company prior to the specified timeframe contracted for leads to materialize. The company has stated that not all leads will result in a sale. Live Well Financial has advised the BBB that training and contractual agreements with employees preclude refunds. Some complaints have been resolved with refunds being granted to former employees.

    BBB met with the president of the company regarding these complaints. As a result of these discussions the company has advised BBB of the following actions taken in an effort to eliminate the underlying cause of the issues:

    (a) The company has changed its contract language for employees who request their marketing services. Specifically, the language has been changed from “lead purchases may take as long as thirty (30) to ninety (90) days” to “lead purchases may take as long as ninety (90) days”.

    (b) The company has instituted a case by case review of disputes/refund requests to be conducted by a member of its management team. The company has advised BBB this is only a review and refunds/adjustments will be made only in unique situations.

    These guys are a complete disaster. They lie, promise the world, don't support you and then charge you a ton of money for crappy leads. RUN FROM THEM!
