Jg Wentworth - Sales issue

Posted: 2014-05-22 by    Joe Belogishi
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I was doing a transaction with J.G. Wentworth after calling in from their tv ad and they offered me only $20, 000.00 for over $150, 000 in future payments. As I was in dire need for the money I went ahead and took the offer. 15 days after they filed my paperwork I was contacted by a Structured Settlement broker by the name of Michael Davis. He explained to me that J.G. Wentworth take advantage of people who do not know the industry. He also explained what he does and he takes these deals around and shops them with individual private investors to get the best deal- he found an investor willing and...

I contracted with JG Wentworth several years ago agreeing that my annuity would be sent to them from METLIFE in return for a set amount of cash at the start date and then the payments would return to me at the end of the contract. It was nearly impossible getting them to send a letter to METLIFE releasing me from the contract and returning the annuity back to my name. They sent a letter to METLIFE informing them that the payment sould return to me. I checked with METLIFE and they stated that the annuity payments would be placed in my checking account, but the actual owner of the annuity stayed in...

JG Wentworth has promised so much and given NOTHING. The paperwork was sent to us next day, FedEx, filled it all out n sent it back. The little man we dealt with was SO helpful up until that point. Sent us a 250$ Discover card with NOTHING ON IT. because HE lost paperwork, (and never called to tell me he lost it) it hasn't been funded. I call and call but he hasn't been to work in a week. Promised us a advance on our settlement and, wouldn't you know, more paperwork I was not informed about. The guy I spoke to today, cause little man went home early AGAIN today, says it must be a...

this company does all it can do to get your business. once they get your business on a partial selling of your annuity they are constantly late on sending out the remaining portion to your account. they tell you they havent got the check from them company when the check has been sent to them weeks before. they make millions in interest if they do this to everyone. bad mistake doing business with this company, cute commercials but it ends there....

Jg Wentworth - Slow in refunding annuity payment

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
Dragging out payment of my annuity.

I had requested to cash my annuity from J G Wentworth but after 30-45 days we were not able to complete because of tax consequences. Well that was at the beginning of July. It took a week for Wentworth to notify the annuity holder. So my August payment was made to Wentworth !!! The Check was cashed by J G Wentworth August 1st and I still have not received my fund from them all I get is a response that customer service is looking into it and they will refund the fund to me.

These funds may not mean much to them but it is to me. I am...

Jg Wentworth - Kansas, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania - TAKING ADVANTAGE OF DISABLED

Posted: 2012-01-11 by    Disabled Father
Complaint Rating:  57 % with 7 votes
I was wondering how easy it is for JG Wentworth to make billions of dollars from structured settlements mostly from individuals who have been disabled and hurt in accidents. Could it be these people are medicated up and not in their right mind? That would be pretty smart of them to come up with that idea. JG Wentworth has a clause in their long contract that just asks are they under the influence of medications. All you have to say is NO and the contract is valid. My opinion is the disabled and hurt people just see money signs and reply No. When the medication is no longer taken these people regret...

Two weeks ago I called JG Wentworth to apply for a advance against a pending lawsuit that I have. Since my first initial phonecall to the company not one person has had the decency to call or e-mail me back. I have not been kept in the loop as to what is going on as far as my application is concerned. I have sent electronic messages to their customer service department through their website with no reply back for over a week now. I have left voicemail messages and nobody has called me back and every phone number for JG Wentworth online is either not in service or does not get answered. This is pathetic...

Jg Wentworth - They cannot be allowed to get away with this

Here is my issue-please bear with me because for you to fully understand, I have to tell you the whole story. My 15 year old nephew was killed 5 years ago, in his home in Martinsburg, WV by a 9 year old holding a loaded 30 odd. His father who had basically nothing to do with his son for YEARS and lives in SD, felt compelled to sue my sister's home owners insurance. Don't ask me how he got away with that. Anyway, they awarded him $100, 000.00. $35, 000.00 was to go to my niece in payments starting at the age of 18. Some went to his step brother. I do not know why. Shawn hated him and they...

Due to my Disability I am on very strong medication for Depression and Pain. I hardly remember doing so called business with JG Wentworth back in 2008. I can just remember being swooped on like a Giant bird had gotten ahold of me and took 3/4 of my Annuity from my 4 year old and my self. We are now struggling! That money was fought for by myself and my son when my wife died unexpectedly in a Doctors Care. I just now have a question. Can you legally sign a Contract while being under the influence? Is the Contract Binding? Please email me at, auto-dude@msn.com Thank you!...

After a lot of thought and planning, a structured settlement was set up for Kathryn to have a lifetime income starting in May 1987. Kate has been receiving payments monthly for income. We have just discovered that JG Wentworth convinced Kate in August 1996 to take part of her settlement out of Liberty Mutual. This decision has reduced her income leaving her only able to afford a studio apartment, no transportation and with very little spending money. JG Wentworth with its exorbitant interest rates. has...

I am DEAF (HEARING IMPAIRED) single mom of four, victim of JG Wentworth as well. They offered me an quote to get 40k out of my annuity. Then the judge approved, finally I got only 38, 000.
