Major scam artists.  Paid $700.00 up front.  Spoke to Justin Lucchesi who portrayed himself as a lawyer.  He took my money, stated that Sheena Gordon, the paralegal would be handling everything from there.  They dragged their feet for weeks.  Had to beg to have them contact me.  Finally their recommendation was file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to give them and me more time to talk to our mortgage company.  Paid an additional $281.00 for the 1st bankruptcy filing.  Made contact with them again after 1st filing and they never returned an e mail or phone call except to ask me for more money if they were going to continue to work for me.  They never did anything to start with.  Second sheriff sale, and another $281.00 later, closing in and had to file again.  Justin is not a lawyer, Sheena double talks.  Never spoke to a lawyer at this company.  Sheena, if she is a paralegal, went beyond what is legally allowed to do...she filled out my bankruptcy paperwork.  Working with a real lawyer now who is going to get all my money back and then some. How do these slime bags live with themselves?  I've contacted the Banking and Securities of PA, BBB, Consumer Protection, the Attorney General and quite a few other agencies.  They will not get away with this and they won't do it to anyone else.

 Why, as you state in your report, you list several of your "lawyer associates" on the contracts, but yet some of these "associates" have never heard about you? They haven't done any work for you. One "associate" has demanded you take his name off your contracts. You even had a "proposed business deal" that he wouldn't associate himself with because it must have been the scam you ran past him and he was moral enough to run in the other direction. Your world is about to come tumbling down and you have no one to blame but yourself. We have info., supplied by one of your own paralegals, that will be your downfall. Ironic isn't it?

Alia Law Center aka Foreclosure Law Center

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

Before Drew Alia operated as The Foreclosure Law center he operated as Alia Law Center.  This apparently is how he continues to scam hundreds of people and goes  undetected by the people and laws put in place to protect consumers. He uses other tricks of the trade of course. For example listing about 28 other attorney's on legal documents implying that they are somehow associated. As near as I can determine, few have any knowledge they name and state law license are a part of his scam.

I urge anyone who has been scammed by this creep to do some investigation of your own. Check out the other attorneys listed on their documents. Give them a call! Let them know ( especially if you live outside PA) that their name is being used. I think you'll find Mr. Alia will stoop to anything...even scaming other attorney's, to line his pockets.

Seriously, Drew, Are you for real?

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

Did you really say that? The accusations this girl made are totally accurate. How dare you threaten her pubically with legal action because she spoke the truth. Her case is not an isolated one. You treat your clients ( it does seem to be women that you bully the most) with such disrespect it's hard to believe that you have the audacity to hold yourself up as a professional.

Why didn't you sign your own name instead of hiding behind the Foreclosure Law Center PC. You are truly a bully and a coward. Also, if you want to chide someone for spelling errors, I suggest that you look at your own documents where more than one of the attorneys listed have mis-spelled names. It's possible that the name Saharie spelled Sharie and Haas spelled Has  might just be more of your chicanery.

All the people on Ripoff Report cannot be wrong and you right. You stole $3,000.00  from me too. I hope that you have documented all of the correspondence with you clients. And I mean all of it!  I have several documents and recorded conversations myself, as have many others, you have spoken with. As far as I am concerned, you are nothing but a punk with a law degree!  Hopefully, you'll lose that.

Mr. Alia, How do you sleep at night?

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

It's possible that someone might still think that you, and your gang of theives, are credible. They may even believe you can help them and pay you a hefty fee. I hope they don't. I hope they can see beyond your "intake specialist" promises. I hope they take the time to look you up with the PA BBB at see your "F" rating. I hope they take the time to call the attorney listed on your website as an affiliate in their state. I hope they understand that you are not licensed to practice law outside of PA. I hope they ask why the Authorization Form that they sign list another attorney as their designated agent. I hope they are skeptical enough to ask for a signed agreement that you will be acting as their attorney of record with their lender. 

If anyone is foolish enough to allow GMK Solutions to debit their account for your fees, I hope they check out the CT Banking Commission law suit against Drew Alia and GMK Solutions, first. You Sir, are a liar, a cheat and a thief. Someday, and I hope it is soon, you will get what you deserve.

#7 General Comment

Mr. Alia, you have no credibility!

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

I am another one of your many victims/clients. You did precisely the same thing to me. You accepted my money ( 3,000), did nothing, and then threatened to sue me for trade libel if I said anything negative about you publically.

I signed on the dotted line on February the 12, 2013. I told you ( actually it was the " intake specialist" ba ha ha ha, Alan Zaslow) that I had a sale date of March 5th,2013. That gave you more than the 15 days required to stop a sale in the state of Texas. You did not do that. On March 4th, I received a call from your rude, arrogant paralegal Naomi Catchings. I had less than 18 hours notice and was left with no choice but to file a Chapter 13.

If you plan on suing anyone for libel,  I've got news for you; you'll need to sue several of us. We are not going to hunker down to your threats. 

I have dealt with a few sleazy characters in my life. They pale by comparson. You are truly at the bottom of the barrel.

scam - FLC

AUTHOR: parkergirl - ()

 Jane Claire.....thank you for your info. Many of us are in touch with one another, forming a group to get these idiots. We want a refund of our money. please contact Sherry or myself (doglover4jbbi@gmail.com) They haven't heard the last of many of us. Alia threatened me by voicemail, which I still have, and a letter telling me he would sue me for libel because of what I posted here. Guess what, he only made us more determined.

Jane Claire, would love to speak with you about FLC. I too was ripped off for $3000.00. No modification, no returned phone calls or emails. When I talked with the attorney Drew Alia he told me "chill out and have a cocktail I have your back".  Unbelievable!  Please email me at sherryo@kalama.com so we can talk. Some of the information you submitted may have helped me.  We cannot let these people continue to rip us off!

Thanks,

Sherry

A matter of time

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

It's simply a matter of time before you and other loan modification scams are stopped dead in their tracks by the Federal Trade Commission. Your firm is in direct violation of the MARS rule on many counts. I can't believe you are still in operation. What gall you have to threaten a client for libel when you yourself

Mars Rule

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

I would urge anyone who is considering foreclosure options to check out the Federal Trade Commission and the Mars Rule that states that it is not necessary to pay any of the foreclosure/ loan mod companies until they have produced results. I wish that I had know about this rule a month ago. I'd be 3,000 dollars richer right now.

scam artist FLC

AUTHOR: parkergirl - (United States of America)

Mr. Alia...and I use that term very loosely.  It's not libel if it's the truth.  The scare tactics you are trying to use will not work.  Honestly, the first time I heard from you a week ago and the message you left me....you sound bipolar.  I've kept the recording so people can hear how crazy you are and how you tried to threaten me.  What about all those other complaints along with mine that are all over the place on the internet, you know, all the ones that mention you taking money and running with it?  The countless number of people you've hurt?  Oh, I'm in contact with many of them. What about that BIG trouble you got yourself into in CT? Oh yeah, I've done my homework, after I learned some lessons the hard way.  Oh, and by the way, no one signed on an authorized signature line, the info. was filled in below the line as a point of reference, because at the time you were suppose to be representing me until you got greedy with money and wanted more. So get your story straight.  Also, I'd like to mention...I've never, ever once had a phone call or e mail exchange with you until I started to demand my money back. You started out as a patent lawyer then decided the easy money is trying to "help" people in desperate times by taking their money and running.  I have an extremely competent lawyer now. How do you live with yourself by taking money from people who have fallen on hard times, through no fault of their own?  Thankfully, my new lawyer has restored my trust and faith in people after you and your company ripped it away.  I'm in my house and staying here because of him and the work he did and I did to get us there.  Despite not getting any help from you and despite the damage you caused us, I can continue to be a mother to 4 kids and a caregiver to my mother (a stroke victim) and my stepfather.  We were just another source of profit for you and you never saw the story behind it. We are a family who cares for one another, is active in our community and gives back.  I can lay my head down at night and be happy with myself and who and what my family is all about.  I don't think you can think the same thing of yourself and your company.  Although I asked you not to contact me by phone, e mail or regular mail, you filed a rebuttal on RipOff, which you have every right to do, but I will no longer lower myself to comment back to you in any fashion.  You have my lawyers number and address.....you have a problem, contact them.

#15 UPDATE Employee

Rebuttal to false claim

AUTHOR: The Foreclosure Law Center, P.C. - (United States of America)

Dear client:

The terms of our Attorney Retainer Agreement, which you signed and returned on September 17, 2012, were solely to stop the sale of your home and required one payment of $700.

You hired our firm four days before the scheduled sale date, and because of the work Sheena Gordon performed on your case, your sale date was postponed.

The accusations you have made in your complaint are false. You hired us four days before your sale date (as stated above) and our firm did an excellent job of your behalf.

Justin Lucchesi does not represent himself as an attorney. There are multiple emails between yourself and Justin before and after you entered into the agreement with our firm clearly indicating his job title. Also, please refer to the agreement you signed which clearly lists the attorneys associated with our firm; Mr. Lucchesi is not one of them.

We documented every correspondence involving your case and will be happy to provide such evidence.

In addition to posting libelous accusations against our firm, you forged Mr. Lucchesis name on Federal Bankruptcy documents (you even spelled his name incorrectly.) We will be pursuing legal action against you in this matter.

Sincerely,

The Foreclosure Law Center, P.C.
