Berger law firm told my client to stop talking to his lender and to stop making mortgage payments. The lender said they never received anything from Berger.
In violation of the Federal Trade Commission MARS Rule, the law firm required $2500 up front before starting any work. Once they had my client's bank account number (which they required for payment) Berger law firm continued taking money out of the account until my client stopped it. The total stolen from my client is $4750.00.
The law firm committed several ethical and legal breaches. Making a mailing look like it is from the government, requiring any money at all before actually getting a mortgage modification, telling my client to stop making mortgage payments and to stop talking with the lender . . .
On behalf of my client I have filed complaints with the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (where my client lives), the Florida Bar Association, the Florida Attorney General, the Better Business Bureau and the federal Loan Modification Scam Prevention Network.
It seems that one of the people at Berger law firm contacted my client to give him "some" of his money back or reply to the Wisconsin complaint. My client has called and I have called Berger with no response.
