Joe Pichette and Aforma are corrupt Mortgage Brokers

We originally agree to $1600 in fees. A week before the loan was to close Joe Pichette increased the fees to $6,850. He knew we needed to close and took advantage of us. We are at least the third person that has had such an experience with Aforma. I will continue to look for more people with similar stories. The mortgage industry has a bad name because of people like Joe Pichette and companies like Aforma. This man and this company are morally corrupt. They talk a good game up front, but in the end you will pay between 400-500% more than what they initially promised. Do NOT use Aforma or Joe Pichette to obtain your loan. Additionally, we won a legal judgement against Aforma Financial Services. Since our verdict they are no longer a member of the BBB and they dissolved the corporation. Steven Somogyi and Joe Pichette are predatory mortgage brokers out to take your money. Do not buy his act and do not do business with them. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joseph-pichette/38/8a9/27a

Joe Pichette over charged us $7,500

Joe Pichette over charged us $7,620 during our loan closing. Steven Somogyi supported his actions and refused to meet with us. I will not go into details on this site, but the facts speak for themselves. - We have successfully sued Aforma Financial Services and are attempting to collect $7,500 from Mr. Pichette and Steven Somogyi, the agents for service. - Mr. Pichette lied to us repeatedly via email. He deliberately submitted our loans to lenders knowing it would be denied. It was not until the fees were increased by $7,620 that he submitted the loan properly. Heed my advice and avoid doing business with Mr. Pichette at all costs. Even though the court has ruled in our favor, collecting from Aforma will be difficult.
