Some Arkansans to Benefit from Ameriquest Settlement

JANUARY 23, 2006 - Posted at 2:50 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas is part of a nationwide settlement with Ameriquest Mortgate as it plans to reform its lending practices.

Arkansas Attorney General Mike Beebe announced today that the state is part of the overall $325 million deal.

He says affected homeowners in Arkansas are in line for refunds totaling about $600,000.

Beebe says the time frame involves homeowners who refinanced through Ameriquest since the start of 1999.

About $295 million of the total will be paid to consumers by California-based Ameriquest.

Beebe's office said the investigation involved alleged high-pressure sales schemes to refinance mortgages.

The settlement involves 49 states and the District of Columbia.

Eligible homeowners will be contacted by mail.
