In July of 2011 I received a postcard from Lauren E. Womack, Attorney at Law, notifying me to contact her for cause of predatory lending. Since I knew I was a victim, I called and they convinced me that they would provide me legal services to resolve the matter. I received and signed a contract from Lauren E. Womack, and sent $3,000. (I was diagnosed with a brain tumor that month and was afraid I would get behind in my FannieMae backed mortgage.) I never spoke with an attorney, no attorney would call me back, and I was foreclosed on today. Her web is no longer in service, she won’t return my calls, and said operates under numerous addresses. The last call I made was to Mike Fernando, the scammer who was the intake “specialist”. I have been callling him since October. Finally, I called the number he said to contact in his absence. The phone number is to Realty Law Center. They never heard of him or Lauren Womack. I suggest you call his direct number at (818) 201-3750 and hear it for yourself. They are using the Realty Law Center as a cover. Fernando’s e-mail is: Mike@lwintake.com
Consumer Action Taken:
I have called Lauren E. Womack numerous times and the only person I have spoken with in the past month is an Aggie Grice at (818) 201-3748. I asked her to return my money. No answers. No return calls. It is obvious from speaking with the people at Realty Law Center that they are being used as a tool.
With the recent brain surgery and now facing eviction due to foreclosure I am at a loss. Lauren E. Womack uses the phone number: (323) 303-3343 with the address 19528 Ventura Blvd. Suite 247, Tarzana, CA
(I have bank receipts and a copy of my contract but not online).
