I was contacted by Legal Affiliates Group and assured that they could help me with a mortage modification with Chase Bank...I borrowed the money to pay them in 2 payment totalling $1995.00 and I was told to miss 2 payments, Dec. 2012 and Jan. 2013.  After all the initial paperwork was faxed to LAG..I was handed off to a case worker, Angela.  I was able to reach her when Chase began sending letters about the missed payment. She assured me that all was well and the person she was talking with at Chase was very nice..Then I missed the Jan,. 2013 payment and Chase reved up their letters, callls and door hangers.  I was very nervous because I have never missed or been late on a payment and this was getting to me.  Suddenly..ANgela was no longer my case worker and now it was Andy and the first couple of weeks I caould talk with him but then there was no contact.  I called and called and left messages because Chase told me that they needed some documents and LAG had until Feb. 28th or the case was closed. Again, I called and emailed Andy and his assistant but nothing..  3 weeks ago, I had a call from Andy, in the evening, and he told me that LAG had boxed over 300 files and put it all in storage...and there was no Legal Affiliates Group anymore.... He furnished me the owner name Tobey West or Todd West.  He also mentioned a co. called Nouradine and the name Nathan  Charles Bishop..  I still don't have a modification and out $1995.00 which I owe to a friend and must find a way to repay that...

I have contacted the Attorney General in Ca. and the BBB.  I did hear from the ATTY General Office and I have replied.

PROOF TOBIAS WEST OWNES LEGAL AFFILIATES GROUP, US LOAN EDUCATORS, FAMILY FIRST HOME PRESERVATION SERVICES, FAMILY 1ST HOME PRESERVATION SERVICES, COMPLIANCE AUDIT GROUP

AUTHOR: RIpped off by Tobey West - ()

State of Washingington has a cease and desist against him from selling loan modification services in their state...

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I AM AN EX EMPLOYEE AND I CAN ATTEST THAT LEGAL AFFILIATES GROUP IS OWNED BY TOBIAS WEST LOCATED AT 3325 Wilshire Blvd. Unit 940. Los Angeles, CA 90010

AUTHOR: RIPPED OFF BY TODD WEST - ()

Todd aka Tobias West never paid me my last check and fired me because i wouldnt read my script and sucker people into paying thousands of dollars just so he can parade his wife around the office with her brand new Prada and Gucci piurses. I spoke to an attorney about suing Legal Affiliates Group and Tobias West but according to California law SB94 it is illegal for ANYONE in the state of California to collect an upfront fee for a loan modification therefore I have no case on lost wages. Bottom line, if you want to get your money back just go to 3325 Wilshire Blvd. Unit 940. Los Angeles, CA 90010. Tobias West also hangs his California Real Estate License at Nourmand and Associates located at 6525 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. Just ask for Howard Lorey and he will give you Tobias phone number.

#12 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Family First Home Preservation Services Owner Tobias West DRE #01485673

AUTHOR: Scammed By Tobey West - ()

Tobey West, Tobias I.A. West, Todd West, Todd Goodman owner of Family 1st Home Preservations, Legal Affiliates Group, Loan Educators, Family First Home Preservation Services. Tobey uses the alias Todd so people don’t know his real name. I was an employee of Tobey and I know personally he has ripped off all his clients. He never submitted one file to the bank. He just takes client’s money and then never does anything to help them. He also doesn’t pay commissions to his sales people. Everything I was told to tell my clients was prefabricated on a script that we are told to use or we would be fired. Tobey also parades his Arab wife around the office. He buys her Gucci and Prada purses meanwhile clients are losing their houses and his employees aren’t getting paid.

Tobey uses a virtual office and claims his company is based out of Beverly Hills, CA but the truth is, he is located in a Downtown Los Angeles. His exact physical address is 3325 Wilshire Blvd. Unit 940. Los Angeles, CA 90010. Tobey West also hangs his California Real Estate License at Nourmand and Associates located at 6525 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA.

According to California law SB94 it is illegal for ANYONE in the state of California to collect an upfront fee for a loan modification. If you are a victim of Tobey West you can contact the California Department of Real Estate and the Federal Trade Commission FTC.

Tobias I.A. West California Department of Real Estate #01485673.                     

Do not let this scumbag take advantage of you. He will take your money and not save your house.

There is no Michael Bishop

AUTHOR: Stan the Man - ()

If my post isnt legiimate, please contact the California Attorney Generals Office and ask if there are any open complaints against Family 1st Preservation Department. Also the California Department of Real Estate as well as the Attorney General issued a warning about scam companies like Family 1st Preservation. They are in violation of Senate Bill 94. Do not give these companies up front money. The address to their operation is on Wilshire. Please contact me if you need the owners cell phone number as well as his office location where he operates his boiler room.

If you need help modifying your loan, do it yourself. Dont pay them, they will not do any work. They've changed their company name 5x already. The owner is under investigation by the authorities and he isnt even aware of it. He collects money from hundreds of ppl, sits on the file, performs no work and shuts down his business and opens up another entity with a completely different name. He thinks he's smart but he's dumb! He's going to get caught and its just a matter of time. And by the way, he never attempted to contact me to resolve any matter. I am one of the many ex employees who used to work for him.

AUTHOR: info@legalaffiliatesgroup.com - ()

We have verified that the address contained in this post belongs to the offices of an energy company called Montauge Energy. The people mentioned in the post have no affiliation with our company, and the authors of the post have been contacted for resolution. It seems that the author has played a hoax on the employees of Montauge Energy in order to inconvenience them. 

WE HAVE ALSO RESEARCHED THE LEGITIMACY OF ALL LEGAL AFFILIATES COMPANY COMPLAINTS CONTAINED ON THIS WEBSITE, AND HAVE FOUND THAT ALL OF THE AUTHORS  IP ADDRESSES ARE FROM THE SAME LOCATION HERE IN LOS ANGELES. AND THAT NONE OF THE COMPLAINANTS/AUTHORS HAVE TRIED TO CONTACT US TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. WHICH LEADS US TO BELIEVE THAT THESE POSTS ARE FAKE AND LIBELOUS. THE INTENT OF WHICH ARE TO CAUSE HARM TO OUR REPUTATION AND OUR BUSINESS AS A WHOLE. 

It is our intention to resolve any Legal Affiliates Group complaints through our customer service office at 877-209-3080 option 3.

At Legal Affiliates Group, we pride ourselves on our great service and hard work. Thankfully, we have the manpower to fulfill even the hardest of cases. 

We believe whole heartedly in treating our customers fairly and with dignity in their time of strife. We will continue to work with homeowners until bank modifications are a thing of the past.

For more information, please call 877-209-3080 option 3 or email through the website provided by Lennie in his original post.
