Thanks to Consumer Law and Policy blog for this post which picked up on an amazing NPR audio story. You will find interviews with former Ameriquest employees who detail the level of deception as Ameriquest made loans all over the country, including Alabama.
Given what we have heard from clients who were mistreated by Ameriquest, this story is very credible.

Another resource for you is to join our Facebook Fan Page – Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys where we share useful information about the same types of issues that we cover in this blog.


On the Consumer Law and Policy Blog there is an interesting reference to an paper being prepared by Mark Cohen of Vanderbilt. This caught my eye for two reasons:

First, the paper points out the problems of auto dealers getting a quote for say, eight percent, but telling the customer the bank approved them for ten percent. The dealer keeps the spread. Professor Cohen argues this impacts minorities in particular.

Secondly, we have hired Professor Cohen in several multi million dollar truck wreck cases as an economist and he is perhaps the most credible and knowledgeable expert witness we have ever used. He truly knows his stuff.
