This class action lawsuit claims that Ocwen and Cross Country Home Services unlawfully enrolled Ocwen primary residential mortgage customers in home warranty and service plans offered by a third-party company called Cross Country. The Plaintiffs allege that Ocwen provided its customer lists to Cross Country which then mailed Ocwen’s primary residential mortgage customers checks for $2.50, $3.50, or similar low sums. Plaintiffs also claim that the checks were designed to appear as if they were rebates or refunds issued by Ocwen for its residential mortgage customers, but when cashed or deposited, resulted in Ocwen customers being enrolled in Cross Country’s home warranty or service plans. Defendants allegedly charged between $14.95 and $54.95 per month for the plans on customers’ monthly residential mortgage statements.
