Consumer Statement:

I received from RELC, pc that form about them going after your loan company for basically charging too much. I signed up with them thru a woman @ (657) 210 5207. Because I’m broke, I had to pay the $6,000 in two cashier checks. Then I’m to pay $29.95 each month for paperwork, faxes, etc. Suddenly I received an email from this woman stating she is no longer working for R.E.L.C.,pc. Then I was told I can follow their progress on a superior court web site. When I tried to do that they gave me a case # I’m to punch in to get an update. Another person’s name came up. Then calling all the different numbers they gave me and finally getting thru to a person, they thought I was with Bank of America’s suit. I said I was with Indy. They said they’ll get back with me. Never did! Then I called last week and spoke with Deepak Parwatiker who reassured me and said he’ll fax me my info. He never did. Call the numbers, and the re is no answer!

Consumer Action Taken:

Thru simple communication, and I called the Better Business Burough. Then a guy called me that same day and I believe he called because BBB called him, but I don’t know for sure. I called BBB in the beginning and they assured me the company has never had any complaints. The woman I mentioned whom I went through was named Anouchka Fairon/[email protected] She seemed to be a very nice woman.I’m afraid if I stop paying the monthly 29.95 the contract says I then forfeit and they don’t represent me anymore and keep all money!

  • I was under the impression that Attorneys can not ask for fees up front while processing a modification for a client, whether a principal reduction, payment reduction, or eliminating a second mortgage.  Accordingly, the president passed legislation that speaks to this issue.

    • Mr. Pratt,

      We are thinking of signing up with your firm, can you tell us how many cases you have won on the basis of predatory lending with Wells Fargo, and Bank of America in the last two years.  This would be valuable information to those who are considering your firm.
