Complaint Review: About the Children LLC . - Goleta California
About the Children LLC . ATC About the Children LLc did not provide me with a finished and approved document and they kept drafting from my bank even after the agreed amount was paid. Goleta California
On May1, 2017 I entered into an agreement with ATC LLC., for them to draft a Custody Pleading and Order for me. I only hired them because I had special items that needed to be inserted and I wasnt sure where to enter those request. There was a packet for Pro-Se for $5.00 at my local Law Library.
They drafted a payment of $388.00 which was a down payment on a flat fee of $688.00 for their service. To this day they have pulled a total of $898.00 from my account. I used my Debit Card for this trancaction.
On May 4th, 2017 I filled out their interview sheet and submitted those things I needed skillfully added into the Pleading. No reply. I assumed they had got all the documents I had sent and emailed and called to inquire if they did.....No answer or Reply to email
On May 26th, 2017 I received a roguh draft and to my surprise none of the request were in the rough draft and there was a minor typo in the pleading as well but seeing as though the special items werent there I inquired again about did they get all the paperwork I sent. This was my last correspondence from them. not a document I could print and take to court but one with rough draft splashed all over it.
I began to call them to see whats up....No answer and no return call. In one call I left a message to just forget it. I assumed since I cancelled their service the only way I could in light of their relutance to return calls or emails by leaveing a voice mail that they would no longer draft money from my account.
As I had already started the case in March the courts sent me a letter informing me in June that I needed to file the orders or risk dismissal. It had been months and I still hadnt received anything from ATC so when I went to talk to the Judge I went to the Law Library and bought the packet and filled it out and set the hearing myself.
I think you intend to committ fraud when you cannot do a job professionally but you take a clients money and then just down right stealing to take more than agreed upon in the written agreement you produced. To charge $688. for something that cost $5 ought to be a 1st degree felony.
So November 4, I noticed on my bank account them drafting amounts we didnt agree to after they did not even provide me a usable product.
$900.00 later I dont have a finished document to view for approval or to file in Court. Nor any reason to feel like this company exist for any reason other than to rob people with little legal knowledge.
November 14, 2017 I sent them a demand email for return in full of all my money since they never produced me a document to sign off on, one that was to my approval so that I could submit it to the Court
Bottom line from May 1, 2017 to November 14, 2014 I have not received any document at all from ATC LLC., that I have seen or approved or that didnt have "rough draft" watermarked on it but this company of theives has drafted the agreed amount plus moneies not agreed upon forcing me to close my account.
