if your a homeowner and you have gotten a solicitation from Remedy Law. this firm just switched over from Prudent Law & were also called Novation Law Center very slick of them but they are rumored to be under heavy investigation and this is why they switch names. The owner Matt Brinks or so he calls him self is not forth coming about his real name and is not the owner but the marketing arm of this firm and hires puppet attorneys and pays them a per file fee to keep quiet. So i hope this helps and will shed some light on there activities. i us to work this firm until i saw what they did to people and there $$$$$. good thing i still have eyes and ears inside this place so i will keep people updated on there changes. Call your Bank modifications are free and you should not be getting scammed by companies such as this one. REMEDY LAW is a scam but im sure the owner can make is Lambo payments and keep scamming people to. do not forget Simon Yarandi he is another scum bag partner who is a rip off.

Huge Scam

AUTHOR: Justice - ()

 Remedy Law Center and every other name they go by are nothing more then a scam that crosses the state line of California and can not practice law in any other state, in fact call and ask to talk to the attorney in charge and you'll get an answer of "we'll take your name and have the attorney call you" good luck getting a call back !!!!  How they are able to solicit business is by cold calling or by advertising through the mail. They claim to be able to help with home modifications when in fact they can do nothing except do some fast talking and have you signed up and turning your money over to them in 3 installments. All 3 checks are post dated and are picked up by Fed Ex usually the day after you have agreed to their fake terms. They will have you turning over all your pertinant information under the guise of having to send everthing to their processors, who sends all info to the lender, supposedly. They promise to have modifications done in a timely manner, anywhere from 45-60 days. After they have recieved all the payments and have cashed the checks, this is when you can plan on not hearing much from them, and if you do call,you will get the same answer that "a message will be sent to your particular processor". If you don't get a call back you might get a letter in the mail saying that your new processor is so and so....when you call to talk to your new one, you find out you have another new one who will call you back. What a joke !!!! Then the next thing you know your getting more letters in the mail for the same info that you've filed a gazillion times with them and invariably the answer is that the lender is requesting more info or the info that was sent didn't come through the fax right!!! At this point you might be scratching your head and beginning to think, something doesn't seem right with all of this. So like most of us that have been scamed by these jerks, we begin to investigate and find out how deep these scammers are into this whole thing and that they were able to make their moves on the most vulnerable. Not only are they not able to get modifications, they don't even have a legitimate address  4500 Campus Dr. Newport Beach, Calif. is nothing more then a group of buildings with suit numbers. Remedy recieves their mail through drop boxes. It's my understanding that they have burned Fed Ex with their phony business addresses.  They also will encourage people to get involved with Consumer Legal Credit because it will look good for the lender that you have consolidated your credit cards. They all are in this together. Look up the addresses they both show 4500 Campus Dr. Consumer asks for payments up front as well and they move very slow in order to make money for whoever is handling the automatic withdrawals . They seem to run things through Gateway Debt Pay, which is like a middle person. Remedy nor Consumer want anyone to know that they are involved with this !!! That should have been our first clue, but we didn't think to much about it at first.  What we have learned is that we were lied to, we had our money taken from us with nothing being done, we were given the run around more times then we can count, our home went into foreclosure, but hopefully we are able to save it after calling our lender and explaining everything to them. We found out from our lender that a Cease and Desist had been place on them which we knew nothing about. All the numbers of the people we talked to in the beginning of this fiasco have been disconnected and all e-mails have been undeliverable !!!!!   For those of you who may be reading this....DO NOT DO BUSINESS with these companies. You will be sorry. You can work out things with your creditors without having to pay for it and talk to your lender to see what can be done.    Here are some names of the people that you maybe have come across if you are dealing with Remedy:  Nate Rhoades aka Nate Ferrar (processing Manager ?) Jorge Velasquez, Luis Ortiz, Karl Stordahl, Vanessa Gomez,  Rick Weiss, Mark Weiss, Jenifer Porez.  I know for a fact from a good source that these so called businesses are nothing more then SCAMS !!! Not only that Pam Stacey Gerber Gressiner who is also listed has been disaplined by the California State Bar Assoc. for 15 complaints regarding loan modifications. I tried to find some of these other people from the State Bar and none could be found. If you have been scamed by these people you need to contact the FTC, FBI, Newport Beach Police, Attorney General of California and whatever state your living in contact those authorities.

#5 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

California Attorney Andrew D. Weiss creates all legal documents.


 California Attorney Andrew D. Weiss believes he has created legal documents to sidestep the Federal and State Laws preventing the upfront fees for HOME LOAN MORTGAGE MODIFICATIONS.  It makes one wonder why Mr. Weiss uses a fake name there and does not his name on any paperwork.  He and his partners hire other lawyers who never show up there a very small fee per file.  These Lawyers have no isea how many files are processed.  The orginization run by Attorney Weiss have as amny as 12 names and 6 addresses.  One owner Mike Zadeh says they make over a million dollards a month in profit per month and pay over 50 employees per monthe and this is only for HOME REMEDY CENTER. The REMEDY CENTER  does LOAN MODIFICATIONMS in Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, South Carlonia, North Carlonia and Illinois.

The city of Newport Beach has no record of any licensed business by these names and these people in Newport Beach, California.  The California State Bar Association has NO  record of any of these businesses or attornys at this address.

When walking in the building there are no names of any businesses just numbers on the offices.  The people working in there seem to be afraid they might be caught as if they are doing something illegal.

 Yes and it is the same name and website.   Newport Beach Police Report records show the Police were summoned their and were forced to tazer an employee who was not paid.  It appears they not only RIPOFF the customers but employees.  Upon interviewing some of their employees in the parking lot they bring a new batch of employee victums each month have them work and not pay them.  The psycopaths collecting the money cheet everyone possible.  When you walk in the front door of the building you get a very creepy feeling when you greeted by an armed gard.  Gee I wonder if he will help them when the FBI raids the place!

The Remedy Group aka The Remedy Center, aka various names

AUTHOR: notinourbackyard - (United States of America)

First, let me begin by saying that my elderly father was a potential victim of this phony organization before I intercepted and conducted some extensive basic research on what these companie(s) say about themselves? 

Notice that the alleged "owner"(s) reply, provides in his rebuttal a link that you may click to read "Customer Reviews?"  This may also be found by visiting their advertised website theremedygroup.org- Beware and take caution: anyone can set up a website and cut and past actual logos of creditable organizations they allege to which they claim to be associated.  Well, let's click on each of those logos and visit those organizations websites.  They each with exception of one, provide a "search" for companies that are registered with their organization.  Go ahead and search for yourself.  You will find nothing, just as I found nothing.  

Next, visit the State of CA Bar Association's website to search for this purported firm:  entitled "The Remedy Group;" "The Remedy Center;" (take note this name is the name "stamped" on all of their sample financial institutions they have alleged to have successfully negotiated refinancing of mortgage loans.) http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/MemberSearch/QuickSearch This is a search for firm name; now conduct a search for the purported names provided here on ripoffreport.  "Matt Brink" and "Simon Yaranda"  You will return "no search results!"  A consumer is led to presume that when a "law firm" presents themselves as a "law" firm that their would be licensed attorney's who are either associated with this firm as independent partners or owners.  There is no company nor person(s) name that exists.

Next, visit the State of CA, Secretary of State's Business Search here: http://kepler.sos.ca.gov/
Take the time to enter all the possible "company name(s)" that seem to vary and change according to each consumer's experience with individuals connected to this phony organization.

You will discover as I did at this point, by some simple online research this company doesn't exist. Examine every landing page their website directs you and witness that there are never any names of alleged attorney's that either own or operate or do business with this phony organization.  

In todays digital age: we have new colloquial/cultural terminology that elderly citizens do not understand such as "Phishing," "Spam," "Spamvertising;" much less any likelihood these elderly citizens have the ability to navigate the internet or a computer.  We, are all "Consumer Advocates" and have both a moral and ethical obligation to protect access to and abuse of elderly persons or others.
