Complaint: I was contacted by ******* *********, after calling a solicitation to inquire about Mortgage insurance for my home Mortgage. I specifically asked her for a product that would pay off my mortgage in the event of my death. She came to my home and sold me a policy that was not Mortgage Insurance. She informed me that this was in fact Mortgage insurance, and the policy would fully cover my mortgage. She signed me up for automatic deductions every month. When I signed the contract, it was much different than the copy she mailed me. She took the original with her and then mailed me a copy much later. When I reviewed the copy it was not what we discussed. When my daughter caught her lying, she said that Life insurance is mortgage insurance and they are one in the same. She also said that I purchased life insurance for which she was taking out of my account monthly. I asked her to cancel and she continued to cancel. She came to my home to solicit my business then when I attempt to cancel she does not respond or help. She continues to fraudulently withdraw funds from my account monthly.
Desired Settlement: I would like a refund however I don't see this as happening because she won't even return my calls. So I would be so thankful if this matter can be fully investigated. She took advantage of me financially and committed fraud. My daughter is planning on notifying Adult Protective Services to ensure she never takes advantage of other seniors. We are living on limited income and when we reach out to Agents they should never take advantage of us. Everyone will be senior citizen one day.
