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!

Reason of review: Problem with delivery.

Monetary Loss: $200.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Had an Experience with Hud Homes?

I just got the same email from a new name: Kristen Taylor.

They use a phone system so you'll never actually hear the voice of the person they are impersonating. I'm confident all these people don't exist, someone is just sending out emails en masse and hoping to get a response.

Don't sign up!

This is still going on. Be wary of Liz Queen. I'm based on NYC Metro.

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...

I just got an email today from Kiz Queen, but decided to do some research before contacting them. Although I figured this to be a scam, your comment was helpful. We seem to be getting several text, phone calls and emails every week from companies promising buyer/seller leads for a (low) fee

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!
