Advocate Law Groups Of Florida Lindeman Title and Escrow, Lindeman Commercial capital lending, ALGOF RUN THE OTHER WAY! miami lakes Florida
RUN THE OTHER WAY!!!!  I have been with Advocate Law Groups of Florida for 3 years and after paying them over $20,000 I have not gotten any results. I called bank myself and they told me ALGOF has not contacted them in years. I contacted ALGOF and they could not provide me any information saying otherwise. I dropped ALGOF and called the bank myself to get a modification. WITHIN 2 MONTHS I GOT MYSELF A MODIFICATION FOR FREE THAT DROPPED MY PAYMENT TO LESS THEN HALF!!!To my understanding ALGOF has untrained negotiators that never respond to my calls. They have very little negotiators that cannot support the workload and your file is worked once every 3 months!!!LOAN MODIFICATIONS AND THE APPLICATION IS DESIGNED FOR CUSTOMERS TO DO IT THEM SELF!!! Last time I went the office they had posted also as Lindeman Commercial Capital Lending and Lindeman Title and Escrow. I said to my self if they don't even have the capacity to focus on foreclosures why are they branching out to make the foreclosure department worse?

Advocate Law Groups of Florida P.A. For 3/1/2 years they took $23,000.00 to do a modification on y house with no results. I was loosing my house until I hired another attorney. Miami Lakes Florida
On September 3, 2011 my wife and I went to the office of Advocate Law Groups of Florida, after seeing their add on television, because we had bee denied a modification from our bank, Wells Fargo Mortgage Corporation on the basisi that we were paying on time. The person who took our information, named Pablo Sr. told us not to pay any more, because, (his exact words) banks don't want to work with you if you are paying on time. He asked for a down payment of $3,200.00 in three installments: $1,200.00 at that moment; $1,000.00 on October 3; and another $1,000.00 on November 3. Then he said that if they weren't able to get the modification within those three months, wich was very unlikely, they would need to withdraw $495.00 from our checking account on every subsecuent month, beginning on December 3, 2011. Since then, and until March , 2015, they have taken from us the total of $23,000.00, and we would have lost our house, set for public auction on March 31, 2015, if we had not acquired the services of another (an honest one) attorney.In the beginning, apparently, they did some work; but after Wells Fargo transfered the account to another company, they did nothing but lie. After going thru four mediators or negotiators that never answered their phones, and never called back, even under their promises to call back within 24 to 48 hours; and if we called their main desk most of the time we would get an answering machine that would ask for a short message and a phone number to call back, which they never did. During those three and a half years I never saw an attorney, not even a para legal; all I saw and spoke to were mediators who asked for additional documents. The last one of the mediators, a Mr. Fuad Morales, even told me that he had send a proposal to the bank, (PennyMac), offering $1,000.00 down so they would put the house on a retention plan; but according to him, it was refused. Now, after such a long time, and being tired of the same words, (no positive results whatsoever), and being in the verge of llosing my house, a month ago I decided to disregard their advise not to talk to the bank, and called them, and; surprise! surprise!, I was told that there had not been any communications from my attorney for at least six months.I don't know if I be able to recover any of the money I paid Advocate Law Groups of Florida, but even so, I'll like for eveybody to know that they are running a scam, taking advantage of the people havinf problems with their mortgage loans.

At first the US Advocates address, phone number was incorrect /and or missing. I emailed Michelle the info I had found from the BBB's website and a few days later address phone and credit rating is A+. My Father signed Proposal on 1-14-09 for $3,500.00.       Michelle advised us that US Advocate Law Group will call us will a update contact person.  On 2-23-09 we were contacted by email ~  by  Heather Torres and advised, I will be your Case Manager and one point of contact through your loan modification process. On average it takes 10-12 weeks for completion. During the process, you may or may not get phone calls, letters, or emails from your lender, however, if you do, its vital you forward any information you receive to me. It is very important that we stay in constant communication throughout this whole process for us to have a successful loan modification. Our contract reads we are not to speak with anybody but US Advocate,  Heather  Torres Case Manager, US Advocate Law Group, 1-866-903-0949 ext. 504-Toll    Free 1-866-703-8809 Heather.Torres@usadvocatelawgroup.com. Then our paper work got lost, pages missing, and we had to refax  and send all the personal paper work again. Heather Torres was taking a long time to return calls and emails so I contacted a Manager Elizabeth Moriel elizabeth.moriel@usadvocatelawgroup.com    1-866-903-0949 ex 513 on 3-20-09,because Heather didn't know how to open attachments.

Advocate Law Group of Florida ADVOCATE LAW GROUP OF FLORIDA...BIG SCAMMERS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA Orlando, Florida
On March 2010 I used the services of Advocate law Group of Florida, for a home loan modification. They took almost $7,500 on fees. They promise to lower my mortgage payments around $596.00. It's been more than a year and these people have done nothing for me. I made several calls to the people or employees working in my case. They never return my calls. Several times I made a trip to the local office to see if I can speak to someone. Sometimes I find someone and he promised not to worry about nothing. Finally in August 2011, my house went into foreclosure thanks to them.I will not rest until I get these people with the state of Florida Attorney General..Advocate Law Group of Florida, your days of scamming people will come to an end soon.

Paola Molinari Loan Modification fraud by Paola Molinari Orlando , Florida
I was contacted back in June of 2010 by Paola Molinari and talked into signing with her for help on our house payment. she led us to believe for a flat fee of $1495, she would work directly with our lender to have principal dropped off our loan (due to depreciation), lower our rate and most importantly, lower our payment. I had to continually call her for updates and all she ever told me was that it was pending. she kept telling me that my lender was the one holding up the process. Needless to say after their four month process (that was supposed to be max time this would take) passed, I contacted my lender and found that they weren't really negotiating anything. They told me I should have contacted them directly. I in turn sent them some of my information directly and asked for a refund from Paola Molinari. she said that since I had contacted my mortgage company that I had breached the contract and was not entitled a refund but she said she would continue to work on my package to get it finished. Paola Molinari was the one I most worked with. she was nice at first but then started getting short with me and when I asked for a refund became rude and would not return my calls. Then on 10/2010 her cell phone was disconnected. I received foreclosure papers from my mortgage company! I called to Paola Molinari and she said she would get a hold of them and find out what was happening. So now, basically at this point, I decided to contact the CEO of US Bank, my mortgager, they in turn called US Bank to make sure my papers were being handled correctly and I received a call the next day from the supervisor there who had me refax my check stubs to her and started over on my account as the number for the trial mod were still too high for us. Bottom line is that Paola Molinari did nothing but forward my papers from her office to my lender and never negotiated anything. I am going to fax her a request for a refund but doubt very seriously she will help me with that. She is the worst person I have ever dealt with and I feel so stupid for falling into her trap. I feel like she stole $1495 from me and have done this to everyone that deals with her. Therefore, I wanted to report her as a problem person to the FBI, Attorney General Office of Orlando, FL and every agency there is and maybe no more people will get into trouble with this person Paola Molinari. Please call the following numbers to file a compliant against her, she's be investigated by the following agency's:   Attorney General Office:                       850-414-5300 FBI Office:                                             813-253-1000 or 407-875-9976 Florida Office Of Financial Regulations: 850-410-9805

Advocate Auto Consultants Advocate Auto Consultants (FL) Out of Business and has closed their doors and Fired all employees Winter Park, Florida
Advocate Auto Consultants was a company who has a website about diminished value, they also utilize public records such as police reports to mail out letters to the parties who are not at fault for accidents and inform them they are also entitled to Diminished value in addition to the repairs and rental car. The reason for the website and letter is to have individuals contact Advocate Auto who would make it seem much harder than it really is to collect Diminished value from insurance companies and that Advocate Auto would be able to collect 3-4 times more than any regular person trying to make such a claim on their own. In order for Advocate Auto to be able to handle a claim for anyone Advocate Auto would need a consumer to sign an Assignment Agreement signing over their rights and entitlements for the diminshed value they are entitled to over to Advocate Auto however when doing so the consumer then has NO SAY what amount to accept or decline, that decision is made by Advocate Auto cause they own the rights and can do what they please to do. Advocate Auto Consultants used to be Advocate Auto claims. Advocate Auto Consultants has fired all their employess except for 3 people as of September 15, 2011. If you are a person who has signed up with Advocate Auto you may want to contact them and tell them to accept whatever offer you have with the insurance carrier and collect whatever money you can before they have no money left to pay anyone.     If you read the other post on this site you will find one from a prior consumer and one from an Ex-Employee Jason Huet explaning who Advocate Auto Consultants is and what the BBB complaints were for however Jason Huet is no longer an employee along with many others who were employees. The sad part is that Advocate Auto was not even professional enough to even inform their own employees that the business was going to be closing so they could look for other jobs and not just be kicked to the streets. The company Advocate Auto Consultants likes to make it sound like they are bigger company that what they really are when in fact there has only been roughly a total of 10-15 people and some people who worked there had several different titles Such as Manager, Supervisor, National Claims Director (National makes it sound like they have more than one office when there is only one). This is a warning to anyone who is doing business with this company or is considering doing business with this company. DO NOT USE ADVOCATE AUTO CONSULTANTS. STAY AWAY FROM ALL THE LIES. Do your research on this company and you will see.

First Premier Bank Card First Premier has caught the eye of major consumer advocate groups Sioux Falls South Dakota
We all have been reading on this website and many others how First Premier Bank Card has been truely ripping off unsuspecting folks around this country. We have seen how folks respond to this website and say well folks should read the rules and regulations as they are clear and they are their its their own fault. Well for a long time too I have been watching this what I call scam bank as they stay just above the law in South Dakota and that is pretty much below the law in most other states. I watch First Premier as they are on my radar screen constantly. I direct your attention to the URL listed below on an extensive study done by Cagey Consumer. They have taken First Premier's advertising sent to unsuspecting folks around this country and they show how First Premier uses every trick in the book to hook these folks into high fees and high interest. They show how this bank truly is ripping off the consumer. I mean when you get a credit card with a $300 credit limit and the first month is over $200 in fees from the bank alone you got to say this is a real scam bank and they are...First Class Scam. So please check out the URL and see what the consumer advocate group has to say about First Premier: http://cc.edumacation.com/finserv/firstpremier.html There is also a good chance that Kiplinger's magazine is going to do high interest high fees credit cards as a feature article in next few months. You can believe First Premier will be right up at the top of the list. Best thing we can do is get the word out to folks on First Premier and that will end their business of ripping off the unsuspecting consumer. Kevin Indianapolis, IndianaU.S.A.

ADVOCATE LAW GROUPS OF FLORIDA P.A. JON B. LINDEMAN JR. SCAMMERS BE AWARE OF THEM MIAMI LAKES, Florida
A few months ago while watching TV my husband saw a commercial of a lawyer that does Loan Modifications.  We contacted this law firm Advocate Law Groups of Florida, P.A. and they gave us an appointment to one of their fly by night offices located in Orlando, Florida.  We had the appointment with one of their representatives Jane Pena- and she explained to us that she represents the main lawyer called Jon B. Lindeman, Jr.  She explained to us that Mr. Lindeman opened his own office because he wanted to fight against the banks to do loan modifications.    In order for us to be able to hire such law firm we had to give a deposit of $3,400.00 upfront signing a non-refundable agreement and also authorizing Advocate Law Groups of Florida, P.A. to deduct on a monthly basis an amount of $595.00 from our checking account to cover their fees.  Supposedly the loan modification was going to take anywhere from 3 to 7 months and we were told that we had to fall back in our mortgage payments so that they can contact our loan company to make the modification.  A couple of months passed and we received a package of about 30 pages of documents that supposedly were sent to the loan company to do a loan modification for us.  In that paperwork there was a letter directed to the 3 credit bureaus stating not to put us in collections because of the late payments on this property, because we were in litigation doing a loan modification.  All these documents were NEVER sent to the loan company and the letter to the credit bureaus also was never mailed or sent to them.   After 4 months of not hearing any news from our supposedly  Negotiator called Adrian Rodriguez we tried contacting him always getting an answering service operator and having to leave a message for him to call us back.  (A law firm with an answering service FIRST RED FLAG!)  Our  Negotiator Adrian Rodriguez would return our calls within a few days if we were lucky.   He always would tell us to not contact your loan company or answer any mail that we might receive from them because WE are taking care of it (SECOND RED FLAG).   After 4 months of receiving a letter from a collection company stating that we where already late in our monthly payments and possibly going into foreclosure we contacted the collection company directly stating that we have a lawyer in charged of the loan modification.  This collection company informs us that nobody has contacted them at anytime.  We immediately called our supposedly negotiator Adrian Rodriguez and questioned what was going on.  We got the following answer from him WHY DID YOU CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY? YOU WERE TOLD THAT WE WERE TAKING CARE OF IT.  We also asked Mr. Rodriguez that we wanted to speak DIRECTLY with the main lawyer Jon B. Lindeman Jr. and he refused to give us his number or where he could be reached at.  We tried on our own means of trying to contact him but he was no where to be found.          We immediately contacted our bank to stop the monthly payments to this company Advocate Law Group of Florida and filed a chargeback with the bank.  Unfortunately, the bank couldnt return our funds because of the agreement that we signed with them (on a non-refundable basis).  As soon as Advocate Law Groups of Florida noticed that we stopped payment on their monthly fees they sent us an invoice for unpaid fees of an amount  three times higher than what the payment was.     They have small offices (fly by night locations) in Orlando, Miami, Palm Beach, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Naples and Jacksonville that we know of.  They also are listed with an F rating in the Better Business Bureau website.    Not only they have charged us more than $5,500.00,  but now we are losing the property and our credit is totally ruined because of them.  For us to try to save our property from going into foreclosure we must pay $7,700.00 (money that we dont have) to the collection company.   We have learned our lesson.  Be aware of these SCAMMERS and do not hire them and NEVER sign a document that is done on a Non-Refundable Basis.

This company is a big scam they advertise assistance with loan modification.  I was a victim of this scam losing almost $7,000.  I first went to Orlando to meet a lady called Janet Pena who was a representative to this company.   Due to my desperation on not losing my house i went  ahead and gave all my  tax return  putting my trust and being the last resource giving them $3,400 up front then 500.00 a month.  Time went by nothing was done, no phone calls or followup, when i try to call all you get was the answering service taking your name and number and wait for a return call which means you never spoke with a lawyer, if you needed immediate attend you will not get a hold of no one.  The only time i got a quick return call was when I first call them to find about out their service... Now I am still in a foreclosure schedule for court next month with no representative i am very upset with this company if i would have research first and would have avoid all this lost of money and time.  Which now i am going to need it for a rental house..  If they is any other victims out there we need to get together and get our money back.. This is no joke our hard worked money giving it to bunch of thief but i hope one day they get what is coming to them..

I am just one of too many people that put their hard earned money on this Law Office, they used to be New Horizon, and now  Law Offices of John Ribarich. they moved to a new location in Sherman Oaks. Judy Newman, one of the  paralegal  asked  for 6 thousand dollars upfront, and $250 for 4 months retainer fee. My case has dragged on for 9 months, and each time I call this Law Office they always give me a run around. I finally had a chance to speak to my Lender, and they told me that I've been denied for a long time and this Law Office did not even divulge that to me. Each time I call them They would always say that its under review.(Obviously trying to buy time till I paid the 4th month retainer fee.) This Judy Newman would call and say that they spoke to the lender and that the lender  would like to play safe  with the loan, and would offer debt consolidation under the Consumer Advocate Group, which is another rip-off (and she is the trustee on this one.) The Law Offices Also tries to intimidate their client about a sale date on the property when in reality there is none. This law Offices will tell you that you dont have to pay your mortgage while under modification but they would make a turnaround and denied that. this Law Office Of John Ribarich AKA New Horizon are being run By the same crooks and  playing the same game. They should be stop and sent  to jail.  Pls post this as a warning to everyone..

Herbal Groups, Inc. False Guarantee, nonworking products, Gave refund assurance of 120 days from receipt of product 1802 N. Carson Street Suite 212 Carson City, Nevada
After viewing an informercial for an toenail antifungal product called MiraclePlus Toes I decided to order it, based on the fact that they had a 4 month period to use the product and a return guarantee during the period if it did not work. I used a credit card to order, and received the order within about a week. I used the product according to the instructions and found that it did not work, after nearly 6 weeks of daily use as the product instructions indicated. I called their customer service toll free number and spoke to a woman and told her I was not happy with the results and wanted to return the unused product and get a full refund per the advertisement on tv. (the ad ran late night on 4/2/08 in Miami, FL cable). She told me I had only used it 6 weeks and should continue using it as it was herbal and took more time than drugs, and that I needed to use it at least one more month. She also informed me that if it still did not show results, then I could return the product for a full refund. She assured me she would note this on my account, and she would also deactivate the 'automatic order' that would occur at the 4 month point (they send out more product and charge you again!). She seemed sincere and thus convinced me to use it longer (I know some herbal remedies do need extra time to work compared to drugs). I continued to use the product over the next 6 weeks, and last night (7/22/08) I called their number again and was told it was past 60 days and no refund was available for orders past then. I was livid!! I asked for a supervisor and spoke to a Mark Lloyd (his real name???) and he reiterated that I had used the product past 60 days and no refund was due! So, I asked for his boss and was given a lady named Donna Artz who apparently works in the Nevada HQ (these guys who take the phone orders are in Van Nuys, CA). So, I have tried to call this other person to no avail. Knowing that they will soon try to send me more of this snakeoil, I went ahead and contacted my credit card company and had my card deactivated, and a new number issued just in case. I sure don't want to have another $209 charge for stuff that not only doesn't work, but this company will not honor their own refund guarantee!! So, beware if you ever order from Hebal Groups, Inc. or their online operation Long Life Solutions as you will be not only unhappy with the results of their products, but any refund you have coming will be denied thanks to the way they do business!!

Florida College Of Natural Health, Steiner Education Groups Shame on the leadership of this school Maitland Florida
Students primarily attend FCNH, to further their careers in the areas of massage or skincare. Skincare students are taught exclusively from the Milady textbook, which is full of misinformation and half-truths. For instance, in the career chapter, the book suggests that with an aesthetician license, one can walk into jobs that actually require further education and licenses -- mortuary cosmetics, for example. Job skills (resume writing, cover letters) are discussed in the broadest and most basic terms. Again, no specifics germane to beauty, cosmetics, skincare, etc. The teachers tend to push pseudo-science and some pressure students to follow their thinking on subjects with no data to substantiate. Staff turnover is high, and the student body is disregarded when demanding higher standards, called negative by the administration. All in all, the school's/Steiner's corporate culture is one of wishful thinking, obfuscation and confusion. Slap dash presentation of educational materials and minimal clinic curriculum are the norm. While other FL schools cover body wraps and peels, FCNH does not. Real world advice on getting a job in the field is nil. Staff in the admissions department ought to wear masks. Their misrepresentation of what the school offers, in exchange for the high tuition, is tantamount to highway robbery. I say this in the strongest language that I can, as students graduate devastated by debt, only to be ignored by the so-called Department of Career Services. Shame on the leadership of this school, and shame on the corporation that promotes it. S Apopka, FloridaU.S.A.

IGIA SINGER ripoff, false billing, fraudulant sales, fraudulant advertising, RICO act Los Angelas California
Same deal,got four {4} vacuumes sent FED-X. I asked the same questions as others, why would anyone order four vacuumes? It does seem that SINGER has gotten an injunction for IGIA to stop selling their vacuumes due to complaints. {SINGER website} Vacuumes were sent from the same California address after the injunction took place.... I wonder if this has stopped IGIA from doing business in New York only? Have contacted the California Atty. General as well as the B.B.B. located there. Sent them a copy of the article off the SINGER website as well. This to me seems like a violation of the RICO act, companies,people conspiring to defraud individuals. They are a shell corporation under the umbrella of TACTICA When you do a search though, www.singervac.com and www.seenontvmarket.com comes up and its run by IGIA and TACTICA, lots of other tha link you to IGIA and TACTICA Doesnt seem the injunction order by the judge is being honored... What about a class action lawsuit against IGIA,TACTICA,SINGER and name a few of the network/sattelite channel providers as defendants as well? News FEDERAL JUDGE ISSUES INJUNCTION AGAINST TACTICA INTERNATIONAL, INC. September 28, 2005, New York, New York: On September 22, 2005, Singer terminated its License Agreement with Tactica International, Inc. Yesterday, Singer filed a lawsuit in federal court in New York seeking, among other things, an injunction barring Tactica from further sales of Singer and Lazer branded products, including the Lazer Storm vacuum. Singer sought this injunction to stop further sales by Tactica because of complaints it is receiving from consumers concerning Tactica. The court today issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting Tactica, effective immediately, from selling or advertising products bearing the Singer or Lazer names or trademarks, including Tactica's Lazer Storm and other products in its Lazer line. The order permits Tactica to continue to make a certain number of limited additional shipments, through October 4, 2005, to customers who have already ordered and paid for their product but have not yet received it. Customers who ordered Lazer Storm vacuums or other products from Tactica may continue to contact Tactica about those products. Tactica's email address is customercare@igia.com and its toll-free customer service number is 800-716-8667 (business hours 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. EDT).

Consumer Advocates Group , Consumer Advocate Group Mortgage Modification Fraud in Violation of California Law West Los Angeles, California
I am writing this on behalf of a client who was absolutely promised that Consumer Advocates (!) would get her a lower interest rate and a lower mortgage payment with another lender.  They did nothing but require more and more paperwork.  Michael Anderson is listed by the Better Business Bureau as the contact person. My client (who has authorized me to file complaints on her behalf) was scammed out of $2897.06 for work that was never done and which is in violation of California Law  Section 10085.6 of the California Business and Professions Code and Section 2944.7 of the California Civil Code. Watch out for this company and any company like it.  They never do the work and are nothing more than crooks committing fraud. What I really hate the most is that these crooks know that the police don't have the resources to go after them and they prey on people who are trying to do the right thing -- pay the mortgage holder.

Syntax Groups Olevia TV rebate ripoff City Of Industry California
I sent a rebate for $300 for an Olevia LCD TV to the above mentioned company. The rebate forms and all originals magically disappeared, yet the bills I sent that same day from the same mailbox made it to their destinations safely. There is no record of my rebate. I no longer have the originals, only copies. They only accept originals and have no advice for me other than I apologize for the inconvenience. I absolutely will not buy any product that is affiliated with Syntax groups again and advise everyone I know to do the same. This company is reported quite often on this forum for this problem; there needs to be a class-action lawsuit against them. Jackie Indianapolis, IndianaU.S.A.

American Residential Law Group Polished Thieves American Residential Law Groups Fort Lauderdale, Florida
American Residential Law Group are nothing but a bunch of thieves. I had a problem with my mortgage and wanted to modify my mortgage. I happened to come across the name of the firm from the web, filled an application and got contacted after couples of minutes. The person i spoke to name was Bill and I have every documentation from them if anybody wants to verify the truth.  This man gave me a payment option of two month which was $1025.00 per month so for the two months was $2050.00. After the money was withdrawn from my account; that was it. I tried calling them and nothing ever happened from there. I had to make repayment  arrange with the mortgage company so as to prevent them from processing to foreclose my house. I've tried every effort to get my money or talk to someone, however all my attempts has been in vain. I tried to sue them but the attorney is also charging $1500.00 before he takes the case. and that has left me in limbo..So ladies and gentlemen American Residential Law Group are thieves. I don't have or know anyway of getting them to pay back my money. Therefore should anyone finds a way please contact me via email or phone. My email address and phone number is listed.
