Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates Questions Raised

Written by Steve Rhode

A reader posted a very interesting comment about Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates. The reader said:

“https://nacalaw.org/
1503 South Coast Drive, Costa Mesa
Pepe Abad’s Current Office.
Right Hand is Roman – Robert Kutz.
Brother to Damian Kutzner – recently sent to federal prison for fraud from ULG. They all utilize Alias’s. Multiple start up companies claiming assistance and preying on people’s current situations and trust. They even go as far as to pray and claim God while lying and ripping off the public.
They work in unison with Pablo Garcia / or “Paul E Garcia”. They aren’t even slick, look at their linked in profiles where they literally follow themselves and their other fictitious companies.”

I have no idea if any of that information is factual or not so I took a look at the NACA website to learn more.

Here is what I found. If you are interested in doing your own research, please post in the comments what you discover.

I Want to Hear From You

Please post your information, comments, or feedback in the comments section below or reach me here.

Quick Look

What surprised me was the site uses the same acronym NACA as the National Association of Consumer Advocates. I wonder if consumer ever get confused.

I’m curious why the site would make their site disclaimer on the bottom so hard to read.

What is actually says is “Disclaimer: The owner of this website makes no representation as to the results to be achieved in your particular situation, since the results to be achieved will depend on the advisability of filing Claim or Lawsuit and will vary depending upon the State where you live, and your particular goals, assets, debts, income and expenses. Everything on this website is intended to be truthful and accurate, in every regard. Nothing is intended to mislead you or anyone else. However, with so much material written and presented, even the best of intentions, we will not have caught all errors in grammar, context, spelling, etc., nor will we have envisioned all possible interpretations of the material presented, some of which might well give rise to ethical or legal concerns.

We invite and welcome your feedback. Having taken into full account this and other disclaimers included on this website, you still feel that something on this website: (1) Constitutes a material misrepresentation of fact or law, or omits a fact necessary to make any statement, considered as a whole, not materially misleading, or (2) Is likely to create an unjustified expectation about results we, as California and other State lawyers, can achieve, or states or implies results that we, as lawyers, can only achieve by means that violate the Rules of Professional Conduct or other law, or (3) Compares our services with the services of other lawyers in a way that cannot be factually substantiated, please let us know.

Videos Presented On This Website: This website contains copies of various ads, press releases were created for purposes of advertising on TV. Many of these ads contain people, other than attorney Peter L. Nisson himself. With one exception, all of these particular ads contain dramatizations and do not depict actual events or real persons. That is, these people are actors, not clients, hired to help produce the ads.”

Now that’s interesting – “With one exception, all of these particular ads contain dramatizations and do not depict actual events or real persons. That is, these people are actors, not clients, hired to help produce the ads.

I did enjoy their statements “we will not have caught all errors in grammar, context, spelling, etc., nor will we have envisioned all possible interpretations of the material presented” and “Metaphors, analogies, slang, turns of phrase, idioms, actor or actresses, stock pictures and other literary devices utilized on this website are NOT meant to be read literally.” I thought I was the king of typos.

Curiously they say, “Please address your feedback, complaints and concerns to us by email addressed to [email protected] You can call (855) 622-2435. (We do not list an email here solely for the purpose of avoiding the generation of unwanted internet spam.)” But isn’t that their email address right there? That’s a rough way to hide it.

The site lists Peter Nisson as the Senior Director of Legal Services. – Source

However, that title does not mean Nisson is the owner of the company.

According to the State Bar of California, Nisson is currently eligible to practice law in California. However, he has been suspended twice. – Source

It appears past unfortunate issues surrounded mortgage modification issues with clients. See this.

NACA Non-Profit Claims

The State of California has no company registered to do business under the name Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates as either a corporation of LLC.

According to the IRS there is no nonprofit listed under the name Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates or NACA in Costa Mesa, California. – Source

Ownership of the domain name nacalaw.org is hidden.

I was unable to verify the nonprofit status of the company or the name they may be registered to do business as if it is not Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates.

Pepe Abad

A Pepe Abad does say he is the Managing Director at Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates,

I did write about a Pepe Abad before in conjunction with a company named Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition.

And this might be a complete coincidence but as part of that story I noted Pepe Abad owned a very similar domain name – nacaloanmod.com. I even saved a PDF of the site in 2011.

However, at the time the company was calling itself NACA and the National Association of Consumer Advocates but said NACA was a subsidiary of Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition Corporation.

The IRS has no registered nonprofit in Costa Mesa under the name Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition Corporation. – Source

According to the State of California, Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition Corporation was dissolved and not a company in good standing.

There was also a company named Consumer Protection Assistance Coalation, Inc. that was a Delaware corporation registered in California. The status of that company is Surrender.

A 2011 letter attached to a filing for Consumer Protection Assistance Coalation, Inc. identifies Pepe Abad as the president of Consumer Protection Assistance Corporation.

Serve All, Help All, Inc.

I did find a reference that NACA is a division of “Serve All Help All Inc. (SAHA), a public-tax exempt 501(c)(3) Charity.” – Source, Source

The IRS has no listing of a nonprofit under Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates currently operating as a nonprofit.

The last public tax filing for the company appears to be from 2013. Others are available.

Serve All, Help All, Inc. is currently an active corporation in California. The CEO is listed as Purandar Amin. The Secretary is Rhutu Amin Gharib. The CFO is listed as Nataverlal Patel. – Source

The Serve All, Help All, Inc. website actually says, “In the current economic cycle, SAHA has realized that when there is no roof over the head, education and a healthy life style become academic concepts. In association with the Non-Profit Alliance of Consumer Advocates, SAHA educates home and small business owners at no cost to maintain their homes and a decent lifestyle, providing necessary tools and information. In the past 15 months, this non-profit has helped hundreds of homeowners either by completely free home loan modifications or by legal help to bring the lenders to the negotiating table to settle with them. Visit us at: www.NACALAW.org.” – Source

A Ravi Jain claims to be the cofounder of Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates.

I Invite You and Nonprofit Alliance of Consumer Advocates to Post Clarifications in the Comments Section Below

I’d love for NACA, or any reader, to post any update to any information I have pnon-profitve that may be in error. If someone can identify the IRS registered nonprofit company they are operating under, I would be most appreciative.

  • Help you with what? If it is a mortgage rescue/promise to get you a mortgage modification – do not pay money up front. It is simple to get non-profit status wit the IRS. All you need to do is make sure a few key provisions are included in the corporation’s governing documents (Articles of Inc. & by-laws). If what you send the IRS fits into their 501(c)(3) definitions/requirements, then you get “nonprofit” status. Don’t count on the nonprofit status to provide any assurance of honesty. Check Charity Navigator online to see what they can tell about this nonprofit.

    I ran into this group a few years ago offering mortgage modifications to reduce the homeowner’s interest rate. They required money up front for the modification. This is illegal.

    Any business has to be checked further than the BBB. The BBB exists to facilitate a good resolution between business and customer. In one case I dealt with, the business owner refused mediation with the customer, handled by the BBB, and that was the end of the BBB involvement. The BBB is not a consumer focused resource. They have some useful information about officers, top staff, locations, phone numbers, etc.
