LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -A NewsChannel 11 investigation told you about a local business, accused of deceptive and misleading practices affecting those across the state and now other customers are speaking out. NewsChannel 11's Nicole Pesecky has been investigating this story for months.
After our first story aired last Monday we got several emails and phone calls from clients of Enhance Mortgage all with similar claims. We first told you that Enhance is accused of deceptive and misleading practices by two separate clients along with Texas Representative Mark Homer and now two more clients are speaking out, along with others who have had interactions with enhance mortgage.
Enhance Mortgage of Lubbock is suing over 90 of its clients. 4 of them are now speaking out. Nathaniel Rido, the CEO of Southeast Keller Corporation in Houston, Joseph Hayes of Mount Pleasant, Wayne Cameron of Pilot Point and Ben Harper of Brownwood. All 4 have similar stories, all 4 being sued by Enhance Mortgage for breach of contract.
The corporation buys owner held notes, they do business with thousands throughout the state. "The only reason I was selling the contract was because my wife was dying. She had 2 brain aneurysms, 4 strokes and her health was failing her, so I decided to sell them to pay off some loans," Harper explains.
Texas Representative Mark Homer addressed a letter to the Texas Attorney General stating that Enhance Mortgage is using deceptive practices that are hurting innocent Texans. We called the A. G.'s Office to see how many complaints they've received. A spokesperson for the office tells us, "We are well aware of the allegations going on, and will continue to monitor the situation."
Cameron says, "I'm anxious to see what the court and a jury of our peers finds in hearing the facts of the case and how it may affect those people out there that may not be able to defend themselves."
We contacted Jerry Corbin, the attorney who represents Enhance Mortgage regarding the latest developments and have not received a call back. We'll continue to follow and report any developments as they become available to us.
