#5 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Pastor Lisa Benjamin is NOT a Crook

AUTHOR: Ashley K.Spencer - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, March 01, 2016

I began doing business with Mrs.Pastor Lisa Benjamin in October of 2011, shortly after I moved to Illinois. I have a background in Real Estate and Accounting, however I had no work and I needed help finding a job. I have family as well as friends who reside in Hazelcrest, Illinois that attend Pastor Benjamin's church. When I moved to Hazelcrest my Aunt Yolanda Sampson a dedicated member of Pastor Lisa's congregation invited me to attened one of Pastor Lisa's sermons. My first time attending her church I felt Pastor Lisa's spirit before I actually heard her message. Shortly after the sermon, My aunt Yolanda introduced me to Pastor Lisa and I told her I had just moved from South Carolina and that I worked as an accountant for over 15 years as well as in Real Estate for over 10. Pastor Lisa explained to me that nothing is a coincidence, God brought us together for a higher purose and that if interested she had a few projects I could help with. Pastor Lisa Benjamin and I have a mutual love for the community and we both noticed how there is a Lack of Knowledge within our community about credit and finances. We both agreed that Pastor Lisa being an active and powerful voice in the community should use her platform as a Pastor and help educate her clegry members on the importance of Credit and how to repair credit. That is all.

Pastor Lisa and I created a credit consultation service free for all current church members, and everything went extremely well. I never heard or saw her ask for any money, and I worked first hand with Pastor Lisa for over 3 years, making calls on behalf of our members to different credit beauru agencies also connecting those who needed funding with the resources they needed (i.e loan brokers,banks etc) and I can contest that nothing was derived from greed or mischief. Pastor Lisa Benjamin's intent was and is to help the community and help those spiritually with the Faith.The many people of God who we helped over the years who saw the results of our ministry would often feel the need to donate and we accepted all donations. Pastor Lisa Benjamin should not be listed on Rip off report as all clients involved with utelizing our services knew that we outsourced with 3rd parties which could result in a direct loss. All clients have/had knowledge of these terms and conditions. We all have been in the middle of a deal that did not close or go right, however I know for a fact Pastor Lisa Benjamin did not recieve money to process any loans or better yet Garunteed any funding. Pastor Lisa Benjamin is a woman of God who still and will always do Gods Work. I am unaware of this claim and the account of which it was made.

I don't even know if you really exist.  For all I know you could be Lisa, pretending to be someone else.  You are concerned that your livelyhood is in jeapordy?  What about lives you ruin while holding high offices in churches...takin peoples' money and then don't accept their calls or call them back....causing evictions and undue medical expenses from the stress of being scammed by you.  Yes you have my addresses.  You obtained them as part of your scam.  Filing false police reports is just as much a crime as the other things you're doing.  Go ahead and file the report.  I'm sure the judge would love to see all of the text messages, email messages, and hear the taped conversations.  Phoney taxes and checks?  Now you're lying to cover your own tracks. I have an attorney, too!
