Guess whos at it again?? Kathy Hicks of course. You may remember her from her illegal activity and connection with acclaim legal services. Well now acclaim doesnt want anything to do with here she has found another lowlife with no ethics just like herself. And her new business partner is .... Michael Baumhaft aka Michael J Cooper , yes the convicted felon. Who is NOT an attorney but has been punishied in court portraying one. Yes he acted like an attorney is is not one!

Michael Baumhaft aka Michael J Cooper  has now started a new company company called "Foreclosure Prevention of Michigan" he charges people up to $5,000 and tells them he can save there home from foreclosure by filing a lawsuit on there behalf. The problem is he is NOT AN ATTORNEY. Which is 100% illegal. He also "guarantees to stop foreclosure" which again is illegal. He has been in trouble before for impersonating an attorney, ripping off real estate investors, defrauding the government, lying in bankruptcy court and he has a $600,000 judgement against him from some of these law suits. you
can look up all this info your self on the courts websites. Now he has teamed up with Kathy hicks. Kathy is well known in the realestate field.
How is she known?? She has been in trouble before for illegally telemarketing and splitting fees with a attorney , which again is illegal, has also been sued for ripping off investors. But here main line of work now is illegally telemarketing and ripping off people who are about to lose their homes to foreclosure. and she guarantees that if they pay her or the company she works for which right now is "the foreclosure prevention of Michigan" she will stop the foreclosure.

apparently neither one of these horrible people really care about helping people in distress all they are trying to do is collect as much money as possible before they get caught and then have to change the name of the company again.

Stay far away from both of these people.

Watch out for these people

AUTHOR: tomg - (United States of America)

I am glad i searched the internet before i paid these people. I am in foreclosure and cathy hicks called me late sunday night. and said she could guarantee to save my home. She had michael baumhast call me. he said he was an attorney and would sue the bank and could save my home for $2,800 to start and then 3,500 later. he wanted me to write him a check made out to him. we were ready to pay him when my wife googled him on the internet  and found out he is NOT a attorney. And has been in trouble before for impersonating a attorney and forging clients names and is a convicted felon. And it also looks like his name used to be michael cooper.   i called him back to ask him about not being an attorney and he said he sends  people to emmett greenwood ?????? who i guess is a real attorney????????thats who i was supposed to pay the $3,500 to??When i asked about the 2800 he wanted and what it was for he got very mad and hung up on me.

I have called the michigan attorney general and filled a complaint about baumhast and hicks and found out i am not the only one. they told me to also contact the FTC and the state bar of michigan. i also filed a complaint with the ftc on cathy / kathy hicks for telemarketing since i am on the do not call list.  you can file a complaint on her by calling 888) 382-1222.

it looks like this cathy / kathy hicks lady got in trouble before for telemarketing for a different attorney william johnson from acclaim legal services. according to the website i was reading it is illegal for a attorney to hire telemarketers like mrs hicks.

These people are disgusting. thay take advantage of people who really need help and they dont care who they hurt. 

I really hope they get whats coming to them..
