    Peter, does J Hass actually provide debt settlement? You know, actually negotiate and settle inside their own offices? Don’t they just out source that function too, just like Newport did to Hass?

  • Peter1954

    Thats because Newport was an affiliate office, Newport closed over a year ago, that is why you can t reach Augusta or anyone else, they worked for J ass.

    AND… Yes.. isnt funny how you sign up with the newport financial services but then you end up with the j. hass group.. same thing happend to us.. Hummm… guess thats not sneaky at all.. no explanation.. and yes.. augusta falls off the earth for us too.. she stops returning calls and or answering emails.. once you are in .. you have no one.. just keep sending them a monthly payment.. they get rich and we get nothing.

    Yes, Augusta Smarr is the very same woman who talked my husband and I into using them as well.. she is very good at what she does and i have no idea how she sleeps as night knowing she is ripping off innocent families.. It makes me sick.

    I would not recommend using J. Hass group or note world to anyone.. Get some real help.. DO NO GO TO THEM.. My husband and I are very sorry we went to them.. big big waste of our money.. there has to be a better way for consumers to get out of debt rather than make other people rich.

    very sad… very upset and very mad.

    Stay away from Newport Financial Services! I talked with acconsultant at Newport Financial Services, Augusta Smarr over 6 months before I decided to sign up with them. She gained my trust and made me feel comfortable. I was dumb, dumb, dumb to not do more research on the company! They are a consultant company whom, after you sign the contract, directs you to the J Hass Group, who’s an even worse company to deal with! Atfer they got my final payment, Newport fell off the face of the earth, screening my calls, and telling me that little B*** Augusta Smarr had moved to another department and that no one except her could go into my file because it was unethical! I canceled my service with them after 4 months and they refuse to refund my money! The other consultant there, the little A**hole Manny Reyes promised to do a confernece call with me if I called back and then ignored all my calls when I did. SCAM, RIP OFF, THEY SHOULD BURN IN HELL for ripping off those who are already broke! Do you research and you will see many others who they have scammed! And to top it off, WITHOUT their help, Amex offered me a 40% settlement! NO ONE NEEDS A DEBT SETTLEMENT COMPANY. They do what you can on your own but charge you a hefty fee. I was just stupid! I have filed with the Attorney General’s Office, FTC, and will file with the BBB. Probably will get me nowhere but I vow I will post on as many sites as I can and save people from losing the money that they don’t have. BEWARE of LIARS AUGUSTA SMARR and MANNY REYES!! Feel free to contact me if you have more questions or want to do a class action lawsuit!

      Judy,

      Did you want me to post your email address so people could contact you directly? The public can’t see it.

      By the way, I received an email from Augusta Smarr objecting to the use of her name and requested that her name be removed.

      Steve
