Jennifer Lam was introduced to me through realtor Gene Davis. I was looking to buy a home and this personal friend Gene told me he could get me government funding for a housing grant through his business partner and grant writer Jennifer Lam. I was told that Jen was a graduate of Notre Dame and a Lawyer with a Law degree from Stanford Law. She claimed to have worked for the DA's office but given it all up to help change people's lives. She explained to me that I could qualify for a housing grant and a women's grant, but that there were fee's for filing the grant. I wrote out a check to Gene Davis in the amount of $2500, then Jen issused me a reciept that stated that if the government did not approve me within 14 business days my money would be refunded. Shortly there after she called me into her office to show me my approval letter that was emailed to her from the grant department. It stated that I was awarded $754,233 dollars that would be electronically put into my checking account on September 17th 2008 all with an official government seal. She always had an excuse why she couldn't print up the approval letter. She also told my husband and I not to go to respiratory therapy school which we were both accepted, instead she would help us get millions of dollars to open a non-profit organization to help the community. When we kept hounding her to print our letter she distracted us with yet another grant. She said the Nevada Power was giving out grants for going green. She had us bring in our power bill and told us we would be getting $60,000 from Nevada Power in 2 weeks. Unfortunately my husband believed her and hastely quit his job. Needless to say the money never came from Nevada Power or from the Government Grants. We now have been demanding our money back, which has still not been returned to us, after six months. She also had a business associate named Joey Pham who is the owner and operator of Boba's Cafe on Eastern and Silverado. He was seen taking large sums of cash out of the office, she bought him a new vehicle in cash, and saved him from foreclosure. All of which her own husband knew nothing about. Jen did admit to us that she has a felony for check fraud that she got years ago....which she only admitted when a few clients did a background check on her and revealed this to other clients. I myself am lucky considering that some individuals gave her upwards of $75,000. She also claimed to have a heart condition and only had six months to live....her husband also verified that as a lie. He also said she never went to Standford or was ever a colonel in the military which she also claimed. She still to this day will not admitt it is a scam and says she will give us our money back and get us a grant....both bullshit. She has been seen with a high roller card from station casinos and I believe she gambled most of the money away and gave the rest to her adulteror lover Joey Pham! She closed down her office several weeks ago, and is now supposedly working from home. She couldn't afford her office any longer......Where did all the money go that her over 60+ clients gave her.....She ruined my life. If you are also a victim please file a report with the police fraud department, the DA will pick up the case. if you have any information or need help you can contact me at (((ROR redacted))) CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report.
