Just received a brown envelope stating "Loan Documents Enclosed" from an Illinois zip code from a company in Newport, RI - Embrace Home Loans" offering FHA approved rates of 4.375% home mortgage and consolidation loans. Seems weird, they have BBB stamps and Equal Housing Lender logos on their packet. Sounds to good to be true. They have all the right pictures and testimonials. Can anyone help here. I went to TrustLink and they have no record of this company. Hmm? Sounds fishy. Richard

In regards to the facebook page...it's funny how most of the reviews are from people with only a few friends and almost none of them have posted comments before or since their review. Also I like the one who's profile states she is an employee at embrace. Oh and the girl living in Germany? You guys apparently helped her too. ????

Almost forgot...they have only been accredited since last August but the company has been around since 1983? What's up with that? And how are they rated A+ with 106 complaints in just over a year since being accredited?

Actually http://www.trustlink.org/FindReview.aspx?Name=Embrace+Home+Loans& They are listed on here. Johnny J. Did you read the reviews on BBB? They were about people refinancing and not get appraised for what they thought their home was worth. They also said the appraiser kept their money, duh, if you pay for it and you don't get the answer you wanted it does not mean you get your money back. And Embrace, or any mortgage lender at that, does not have anything to do with the appraiser. Not one complaint on BBB was about Loans. The lenders at Embrace have MLS numbers which means they are accredited. Do your research.
