For FIVE YEARS, I made EVERY child support payment, on time, and as required by court order. I made those payments directly to my b**ch of an ex without any intervention from corrupt government agencies. A year ago, my ex wanted more money (even though I've been on disability for six years) and the b**tards at Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department (LACCSSD) started harassing me.


1. Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department head shyster, Lori A. Cruz, fraudulently and maliciously reported me in arrears to my part-time employer, without court order, and had my wages garnished.

2. I was subjected to vile treatment when I tried to get LACCSSD to stop stealing my part-time wages as I had actually OVERPAID my child support - as documented by both court records and six years of canceled checks. One of their b**tards, who was too much of a coward to provide his first name, "Mr. Beasley" slammed the phone down on me (after I had waited on hold for 30 minutes) and REFUSED to let me speak with a supervisor. I made trips into LA (I don't live in LA County) and was further subjected to abuse at both LACCSSD's main office, as well as their office in West Covina. Again, they refused to provide me with ANY information regarding their fraudulent collection activities against me.

3. I filed suit against the LACCSSD b**tards and was forced to drive more than 70 miles (one way) to get them to stop their abuse. The court ordered LACCSSD, on April 17, 2006 (more than four months ago) their shyster, Dennis Coe, to cease and desist their fraudulent collection activities against me.

To this very day, shyster Coe and LACCSSD have continued their ongoing abuse.


Even though Dennis Coe and LACCSSD were ORDERED to stop, by the court, they have intentionally and continually refused to do so. Some examples included (but are not limited to):

1. They continued to garnish my wages

2. They fraudulently reported me to the State of California which then tried to get my part-time wages a SECOND time.

3. They tried to get my teaching credential revoked - I was only able to get this matter, along with the state's attempt to garnish my wages (for the second time) stopped after I received assistance my state assemblyman.

4. When I was laid off of my part-time job, LACCSSD garnished my unemployment checks.

5. LACCSSD fraudulently reported me as being 60 and then 90 days past due to all three credit bureaus (this happened again, just a few days ago) and have REFUSED to correct this lie

6. Due to shyster Coe's and LACCSSD's fraud, I was forced to hire an attorney. At a second court hearing, on July 7, 2006 shyster Coe agreed (as evidenced by another court order) that I had OVERPAID my child support. That; however, hasn't stopped their ongoing abuse.

7. During the month of July, LACCSSD stole nearly $2,000 more from me. In addition to refusing to stop stealing my unemployment, they also STOLE MY TAX REFUNDS.

8. So far this month, they've stolen more of my unemployment checks, and continue to abuse me by sending more statements that fraudulently state that I'm in arrears.

Shyster Dennis Coe REFUSED to respond to three (3) letters my attorney has written to him in the past month that again, DEMANDED the abuse I'm being subjected to be stopped. When shyster Coe finally called my attorney, he again promised, more than a week ago to correct that fraudulent information on my credit report, etc. Of course, that was a blatant lie and to date, nothing has been done. As nothing else has worked and LACCSSD continues to steal all that I have, a new web site has been established to report on these thugs - (((ROR REDACTED LINK FOR SECURITY PURPOSES))) Please stop by and report on other abuses there. LACCSSD is run by a bunch of unethical and malicious thugs who abuse fathers and their children.

LACCSD uses enforcement tactics to take money.

AUTHOR: uninhibitedwun - (United States of America)

LACCSD is an organized crime syndicate, getting away with "legal theft." I have been trying to recover $30K for LACCSD over the last eight years and no one inside will talk to me. I am not represented  by an attorney. Can you imagine that! I wonder why?

There was a mistake in a 'Step-Up' order issued by LACCSD against a judges' decision. This 'Step-Up' order was not sent out for correction until I forced LACCSD to effect an audit. There was a judgement in place to garnish wages from two full time employers.

After seeking another job (part-time) to assist my improvished lifestyle, LACCSD was preparing to issue a third wage assignment. Keep in mind, first this legal theft was initiated by an inept LACCSD attorney or some other inept employee.

To this day LACCSD will tell me who the employee is. Secondly, I was forced to pay anywhere between $1200 - $1700 dollars per month to LACCSD monies I did not owe to them. I asked if I could be refunded and I was told that the money was used to pay off my balance.

My balance increased some $20K dollars plus interest and penalties for a mistake made by LACCSD. I am in possession of a LACCSD Position Statement with a type written statement from a LACCSD investigator stating that there was a mistake made and not sent immediately sent out for correction.

I eventually contacted my county supervisors office who assisted me and had someone from LACCSD contact me one time and one time only. I made telephone call after telephone call and no one woulod take my call. I was assigned to a VIP team and still was not contacted by anyone.

The declarant has manipulated the system to the point to where she will arbitrarily make claims for other children in her home and her claims would be granted by the court. 

This woman has applied for, and has been granted Section 8 housing which she rents out to other people and has a bank account in access of $100K, has never filed a financial declaration always claiming that she is unemployed.

Can anyone give me guidance to what step I should take next. I am still paying support and the child is not with the mother. There has been several occasions where the child has been away from the mother and the mother was still given child support.
There is plenty more but I don't want to create a 4-5 page report. I can substantiate all of the aforementioned.

Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department Nazis and the #$@$

AUTHOR: Abused - (U.S.A.)


My ex is, like the thugs at Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department (LACCSSD), a real #$@$. It sounds like you and your ex were able to handle things very well - I wish my ex would (she's the one who left me). The only thing she has done for the past six years is to hound me for money - in fact, it's about the only thing that every comes from her mouth.

She has; however, literally ignored the needs of my children and I've spent thousands upon thousands trying to stop the damage she has caused them. While I won't go into too many details here, I will say that I have legal (and shared physical) custody of my children as a direct result of my ex's ILLEGAL actions that harmed my kids.

Of course, the shysters and thugs with LA County don't give a d**n about anything I've done for my kids (and the well documented fact that their mother has harmed them) - the only thing that LA County cares about is STEALING money that was never owed and refusing to stop their abuse.

I forgot to mention another one of LACCSSD's shysters - Deborah Vorwerk Echeverria - who recently wrote to my attorney when I sent more letters of complaint to every member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors about the abuse that won't stop. Apparently, at least one of those supervisors forwarded my letter to LACCSSD which, in turn, passed it on to shyster Echeverria. Like EVERYONE else I've had the misfortune of dealing with at LACCSSD, Echeverria displayed her gross arrogance by literally ignoring the all of the abuse I'm still being subjected to and tried to pretend that I was merely "dissatisfied."

The fact of the matter is that Echeverria, as a shyster, allegedly has a few brain cells (assuming that she really did pass the Bar exam), but is so unethical that, like Dennis Coe and Lori Cruz, is nothing more than another lying thief.

As it appears that Rip-Off Report won't post URL's, I would like to suggest that those wishing to report their abuse by the LACCSSD do a Google search for:

"los angeles county child support services department sucks"

using the quote marks. That'll turn up the site where other horror stories can be posted.

You Are Not Alone Abused Father! At Least My Ex Did Not Have To Contend With Me Being A #$@$

AUTHOR: Deana - (U.S.A.)

Back when my ex and I decided on the child support we secured it with the courts in what we THOUGHT was going to be a simple and trouble free situation. WRONG!

My ex chose wage assignment to make it easier on himself, by having it directly taken out of his paycheck right away, and esier on me since I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and receiving a personal check is a pain in the butt.....

Right from the start he was treated as if he was a DEAD BEAT because he was "wage assignment"! It did not matter that it was HIS choice and HIS request that it be taken in such a manner.....

What we did not know was that he was not paying the amount required by law considering his income, (the 25% of his gross monthly income after his expenses). For some reason he started wondering about the amount he was paying, and told me he was going to do a little research to find out what the Child Support Mandates were..... he discovered that if his support order was reviewed an unavoidable modification would ensue, so to protect himself he sent way more than the amount he was ordered to pay.

He was correct that this could be trouble, because eventually the order WAS reviewed and they went after him like he had never paid a dime!! The court finally decided that he was to pay only $100.00 a month more than the original order and we heaved a sigh of relief.

Meanwhile NOT ONE DIME OF THE $3000.00 he over-paid to date has been issued to our now 14 year old daughter.

Well my ex died April 28th of this year and after his death I contacted the child support division to inform them of his death. I was told that there was an over-payment of child support remaining at just over $3000.00.....I was told it would be distributed to me.

I never received it. It is now August 2006, just under four months since I was told the money would be released to me.

I called last week and somehow this money has simply disappeared! I mean disappeared!!! I contacted the Ombudsman's office and they said it is not in the recored, they cannot find any record of the more than $3000.00!!

I wonder where it went? If not for his smart thinking of the future, (he left an insurance policy and pension, plus the SS survivor benefits our daughter is now recieving), I don't know what shape we would be in.....He always cared about his child not needing anything, and made sure she was taken care of, both while he was alive, AND he prepared for the unthinkable, (his death) by making sure she was not left destitue....no matter what problems we had that ended our relationship, he loved his daughter so very much.....he was a good man, he was an honorable man, and the California Child Support system treated him like s**t! I will never forgive them for that!

Again, I wonder where that $3,000.00 went? A mystery, no?

I never bothered him about money for our daughter....I never had to even worry about her....he would call me, (as if he were psychic sometimes, LOL), out of the blue and ask me if there was anything she was needing. If she did I would tell him and in a few days the money was there and her needs were met! He thanked me in February, (two months before he died) for not being a hateful, money sucking b**ch he had seen his friends deal with....he also thanked me for being a good mother.....

The good and honest fathers are the men that get treated like crap by the support system, while the REAL dead-beats are not bothered at all, or even treated with kid gloves most of the time. It is sickening!
