The company hud homes department is a scam!After paying roughly $200 in attempt to increase my presence in the South Florida real estate market, they wouldnt respond to my emails or call!

I was supposed to get REO training material...at least 2 listings every 45 days...and a few buyer leads per month as apart of their package. AFTER I PAID, I COULDNT EVEN GET THEM ON THE PHONE! They sent me a total of 5 buyer leads, EXCEPT 3 OF THEM WERE FOR BUYERS INTERESTED IN NEW YORK.

DONT TRUST MARK AVERETTE.PROOF OF EMAILS ATTACHED!

I just received a call from Liz Queen (240) 437-3988 Direct line after receiving a email the day before from Kristen stating HUD Homes, (Thats how they get you, They say it is HUD Homes) She was good at her script. I fell for it and gave my Credit Card #, she gave me her Email Liz@Hudhomesdept.com and told me it would be $195 per month! I was all excited because she told me I would start recieving leads already pre-qualified by tomorrow morning 3/24/17 by 9am. I hung up and started doing my research. I went into their website and called 4 different real estate agents that are feature on there site Homeandhousesearch.com all 4 told me they have been doing it between 1 to 2 months and are trying to cancel but they have not received a call back or email back to cancel so they are cancelling there credit/debit cards! They also stated the leads are not good as in wrong numbers, people looking to buy in another state not the state they are representing and the leads are NOT PQ at all. Thank God, they did not take the money from my credit card yet, so I cancelled/reordered my card and called Liz to cancel. When I explained to her why with out mentioning anyone's names, she got really defensive and stated, "They are telling you that because they are worried you will take their leads, What are their names so I can call to confirm if they really want to cancel"!! I told her that would not be necessary as I am cancelling my membership with them!! When you tell them the truth about... Show more

Hudhomedept.com pooped in my cereal this morning! The nerve! Also, they appear to be either a collection of scammers or one scammer pretending to be a bunch of different employees of that website. Either way, don't fall for their tricks.

Thank you very much for posting this and for the replies! They called me today. When I asked "Liz" why I have never heard of hudhomesdepartment.com or homeandhousesearch.com in my tens years of being a Realtor, she demanded that I give her a county where I work so that she could give me stats for that county.... no thanks!

Thanks for taking the time to post. I am glad I didn't fall for this scam. I have just Replied All to their initial email to me, which was also sent to a long list of fellow REalty Executives agents. All those agents will now know what I've discovered by searching for reviews and finding your review, as well as 2 others. I hope you are able to get your money back, but they have only been in business for 6 months, and they are definitely not legitimate, so you may not. Also, watch out for Bgin Online, another scam that called me this week, with high pressure sales tactics to sign up now to get this great deal!

Thank you for your post! I just talked to them on the phone and told them I was going to do some research before calling them back. It's amazing how someone can completely lie to you and not have a care in the world. I couldn't find a facebook for either of them or anything online about the company.

I received the same email showed above from Darlene Gopalan. First, the .com was (is) suspicious as HUD is a governmental agency. The domain would end with .gov. Second, I always do my due diligence and look for info on the company online. Thank you for your posting. Sorry you got screwed.
