The CLS Group / David Nieman – Consumer Complaint – 7-7-2012

Consumer Statement:

I was told that I qualified for a home modification loan which would drastically reduce my current interest rate…I responded to an email targeted to me as a teacher. I was asked to send in $1,500 along with a copy of my tax returns, current mortgage information, and W2s. They never contacted me again and when I was finally able to reach them they said they were waiting on my bank…when I contacted my bank and initiated a conference call, they back tracked and said they would call me back. $1,500 and 7 months later I am left worried and afraid because not only do they have my money–they also have our social security numbers.

Consumer Action Taken:

I contacted David Nieman at the CLS group multiple times daily and left multiple messages…after one month of not hearing anything, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau which was unresolved. I also contacted the bank where the $1,500 check had been cashed…another alarming detail–I mailed the check to California and it was cashed at a bank in Portland Oregon…the bank said they could not tell me who cashed the check. After 60 days, I filed a dispute with the Los Angeles County of Consumer of Affairs. This too was unresolved because they could never reach anyone with the CLS group.
