Home Relief Services (HRS) Complaint - HRS is a major SCAM - Home Loan Modification Services

Review by bonnie007 on 2009-03-19
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- I paid HRS $2000.00 to assist in a loan modification. They gladly took my money and never contacted my lender on my behalf. After 90+ days of waiting and calling for a status update, I requested a full refund. They promised me a full refund, however, I have never seen a dime of it. Major run around for over one month so far. Now I've been told that they are no longer in business. DO NOT GO TO HOME RELIEF SERVICES !!

It is a financial scam, preying on unsuspecting home owners who are already in dire straights.

Sue them in small claims court for failure to provide service under contract.

It doesn't matter that they are closed, they still have a contractual obligation to you and they promised to give you your money back.

If they are no longer in business who is the OP going to sue? When you take someone to court there has to be a defendent sitting across from you in the court room. Now if they are still in business then that is a totally different story

The former owner of the company, of course.

Anyone who owns a company has it listed as either a LLC or a corporation just for that one reason. You can sue the individual but you will get nothing but a huge bill from your lawyer because a LLC or a corporation protects the owner of a company from losing their personal assests when a company is sued. Hence the reason people do it.

RGuy is right. You can't sue an owner and pierce the corporate veil unless there is proof the company was set up specifically to shield the owner from illegal activities. I'm sure this company was set up with the intent of doing loan modifications, not being a crack house front or the like. And yes, you cannot sue a company that doesn't exist. Being out of business also makes the poster's instructions, "DO NOT GO TO HOME RELIEF SERVICES", relatively easy to follow.

I am a victim as well! My money was wire transferred from my bank to the criminals bank account US Bank. The account needs to be frozen, if emptied, then information to the arrest or at least explanation to the clients what has happened.

Teacher, remove your phone number from this post. This is a public forum and is viewable by the general public.

Not a good idea to put your phone number on a public website.

I also put in the paperwork for a loan modification with Home Relief Services, this was in October of last year and nothing was done. They did go out of business but I believe they over to Anaheim under a different name. Have you put in a complaint at small claims court yet?
