    I just got scammed by this group. They were calling themselves “Estate Law Group”, and all of a sudden they are out of business. They scammed me to the tune of $2000. I had been paying them in installments to stave off foreclosure. They had indeed engaged with my banks, and somehow issued a cease and desist order to prevent immediate foreclosure action by the banks, but it turns out they were a fake and from other postings here it seems they simply change there name and place of business from time to time then move on. Someone has got to do something about this!

    This “State Law Group” are simply a group of attorneys who prey on people who are either facing foreclosure or have began the process. This “State Law Group” makes a habit of sending predatory notices that are designed to appear to look like a “Final Notice”. The mailers do not identify them as “State Law Group” but does provide a phone number of 1-866-594-9162. When you dial the number, they are very skeptical to identify themselves and their mission is to simply get your name and address. Their notice claims to have been provided with information from your lender regarding your loan status. Remember, you bank is not permitted to provide any information regarding your account to anyone without your knowledge and consent. This outfit has many bad reviews and numerous complaints in Better Business Bureaus across the country. First of all a reputable law firm doesn’t need to use trickery to ambiguous mailers to attract clients. The simply fact that they conceal their identity should make even the most desperate run away. If you examine your mailers, notice not return address at the top nor is there any address within it. When I called to remove my name from the list, the person who answered the phone didn’t even identify the firm when she answered. I simply asked her to please remove my name from the list as I am not interested in any form of relationship with them. I advised her that I was not open to the deceptive mailers and ambiguous “call center”. She responded with “Is that all of you have to say sir”, I responded for now it is. If you don’t stop sending me these mailers, I will have more to say. At that point she hung up. Isn’t that great customer service? I called back and spoke with Duane. He was as equally useless as she was. Although eager to help me get off their “scam hit list”, he said I would receive maybe one or two more notices before this tok effect. I reminded him that if they continued to arrive at my home, I would forward the document to the Maine State Attorney Generals office for further review. I warn anyone who get a mailer from this “State Law Group” or a call from 1-866-594-9162 to immediately disconnect the call and to forward the mailer to your states attorney general office (or the office handling consumer affairs for your state). Because of they general practice of this firm, I have made a personal mission to spread the word of their actions. I have not done business with them in any way nor have I spoken to any of the thieves with the exception of asking to be removed from their list. My mission is to protect others. Please take a moment to read up on current complaints in their own state as well. They do have a physical address and here it is. 1720 East Garry Avenue Suite 111, Santa Ana, CA, 92705, Phone: (866) 920-8917. They also go by Consult Law Group.

    I’M STILL FIGHTING THE BANK ABOUT THE SCAM ABOVE.  IN SOME WAY THE STATE LAW GROUP GUY .GOT THE CANCELED CHECK SIGNED IT ,CASHED IT IN MY NAME WHEN THE BANK HAD SUPPOSEDLY VOIDED IT. MY SIGNATURE WAS FORGED WRONG AND THE BANK IS CLAIMING I HAD SERVICES FROM THIS FRAUD SIGNATURE AND SCAM LAW GROUP.  THEY HURT MY CREDIT REPORT AND ATTCHED FEES TO THE BILL FOR ME TO PAY. I’M STILL FIGHTING BUT IT SEEMS THE SYSTEM GOES AFTER THE VICTIM NOT THE SCAMMER. THE BBB DOES NOTHING, FEDERAL TRADE COMM. NOTHING, OCC NOTHING CONSUMER PROTECTION AGENCY NOTHING. SO THE SCAMMER KNOWS THIS AND THE SYSTEM FAILS THE VICTIMS.
    MY SIGNATURE IS A FRAUD ON THE CHECK FOR $3500.00.HOPEFULLY I CAN HAVE SOME REAL PERSON OR PEOPLE REALIZE THIS FROM CHASE BANK AND GET THIS RESOLVED IN MY FAVOR. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR FOUR MONTHS AND THE BANK WANTS TO DUMP IT ON ME. I HAVE RECIEVED NO SERVICE OR RECIEPTS ,NOTHING FOR THE MONEY THAT WAS STOLEN IN MY NAME. THE DECISION WAS BASED ON–GET THIS!!!! SERVICES RENDERED. ALL THE PROOF I SHOWED THEM ALL THE PEOPLE I CONTACTED TO STOP THE SCAM, DID NOTHING FOR ME. NOW IT’S THE SIGNATURE THAT I HAVE A LEG LEFT TO STAND ON TO FIGHT THIS BULLSHIT OF A BANK STATEMENT OF A $3700.00 BILL. YES THEY ADDED LATE CHARGES AND FEES. CAN YOU BEAT THAT. I FIND THIS INCREDABLE AND DISGUSTING. ALL SHOULD NEVER DEAL WITH CHASE BANK. THEY ARE FOR YOUR MONEY AND THAT’S IT. VERY UNRELIABLE AND THE PROOF AND CALLS I MADE TO STOP THE CHECK AND THE SCENERIO GOES ON AND ON ,THE BANK JUST DON’T CARE.

    I too was approached by State Law Group, but I followed through with signing up. I work for an IT company, so I know that digital signatures are not uncommon in this day and age. I’m a little confused by your post as you didn’t really give a reason that you changed your mind other than the digital signature which many companies use these days to conduct business. I did my due diligence and research and found a handfull of complaints, but you can’t please everyone all the time. Incidentally, State Law Group did get my interest rate down to a flat 3% for the next 10 years, cutting my payment almost in half. I am a real homeowner that had been denied twice by my lender prior to hiring the attorneys. Don’t let the lenders get the upper hand. You don’t have to use this company, but make sure you get an attorney involved if you really want to get the reduction. It’s the only way you’re going to get it.
