I received a letter in the mail that seems exactly like the mailer one of your posters described from another one of your posts.
I called the number on the letter and spoke with a man named Art Tores, he also said his name was Arturo Tores who explained to me that his company Elite Financial Solutions could renegotiate my mortgage with Bank of America and save me five hundred dollars on my payment.
My wife and I have had a very hard time making our payments lately so we thought we would give this a try. We sent a check to 15866 Imperial Highway, La Mirada CA. 90638. The problem is we have called our bank and they have never heard of this company, and said that they have not received anything regarding our modification.
After some research we were told that it is illegal for Elite Financial Solutions, also known as Elite Legal Group/Elite Financial and also Elite Financial Real Estate Services to even take any advance fees for a loan med ication.
I was able to get a hold of someone at the eight hundred number, since their website is now down, who actually told me his wife Claudia Flores owned the company and it is registered either in Los Angeles county, or Riverside County. Can you tell me what I should do to get my money back from this scammer. We have recently received a notice of sale date from the bank so we are desperate for your help. Thank You in advance for your help Steve.
Is Elite Legal Group/ Elite Financial Solutions/ Elite Financial/Elite Financial Real Estate Services a scam? How can I get my money back from Arturo Torres or Claudia Flores?”
Apparently you live in California and it is not permitted to charge in advance for modification help. I would suggest you follow this refund guide I wrote, step-by-step. It is probably your best shot.
