    Also go to the FTC website which mind you the “underwriter” I spoke with kept saying they are ‘FTC” regulated and under the MARs rule states:
    http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0100-mortgage-relief-scams

    It’s illegal for a company to charge you a penny until:

    it’s given you a written offer for a loan modification or other relief from your lender; and
    you accept the offer. The company also must give you a document from your lender showing the changes to your loan if you decide to accept your lender’s offer. And the company must clearly tell you the total fee it will charge you for its services.

    This includes taking money from you and putting it in ANY kind of escrow or client holding account!

  2. K.T says:

    Please beware that when we got solicited through the mail we did end up signing a form from “Randall Law” to start the process to let them help us with a loan recontructure (mod) whatever they want to call it. After my gut instincts kicked in and reading documentation on laws from the Federal Trade Commission that states you can not even be charged in escrow for a load modification case and California also has a SB 94 that I think may have ended or something but anyways it says lawyers cannot charge prior to client RECEIVING AND ACCEPTING A LOAN mod from their lender. These people are scammers. We never actually sent any checks but they do have all our personal information and our bank accounts. She told me the ACH document didn’t authorize them to debit our account, but it does indeed so now those accounts are closed. I am gathering the vast websites talking about all these companies. Randall Law, Phillips Law, from Irvine CA COsta Mesa NewPort…..where ever, its all the same. What a horrid thing this company is doing. So they give you 5 days to withdraw from your agreement. The next day after I signed I submitted these withdraw papers. Spoke with my “underwriter” and had her confirm via email that my account was closed. This was Friday. Today being monday I get a call from her saying she has my account on hold because she thought I was still thinking about it??? WHAT? So I had to re-email her our conversation which is “in writing” to remind her of the fact that not only was it supposed to be closed but she said she destroyed all my personal documents. There are several people online that have reported this to the Attorney General and gotten their money back. We haven’t given them any money, but all of info and they are still harassing me. I am glad I followed my instincts, but I am irritated that I am an intelligent working nurse who saves peoples lives everyday and was almost taken by these creeps.

    PLEASE spread the word that if ANYONE is sending you ANYTHING through the mail, please don’t trust it. Go straight to your bank/lender and try to work something out, or just save and try to pay what you can. DONT GIVE THESE SCAMMERS your money to work any deal. Remember it is against California and Federal law for anyone to take money in advances, even if put in a client account or escrow for loan mod cases.!!! The fact of how they say nothing will be taken out until each service is rendered yet they charge the most for the beginning but notice at the end they only charge 200 or 300 for the actual loan mod, thats because all the other ‘services” can be rendered despite what the bank decides and if they decide no, they have made at least 2400! Also keep in mind that they want you to send postdated checks… that didn’t sit with me well either. And on the ACH form it dates it out to take your money once a month? How can they guarantee that at that time services will be complete? They cant! but they can still take your money…why? Because you signs a form given them permission to debit your account…even when they say the form is only to “verify” your checks…My mom always told me not to postdate checks, so that little bird sung in my ear and all the articles I read on http://www.bankrate.com about mortgage scams and how to never pay anyone up from to do these kind of services..but out of pure brainwash I signed the papers…I am so glad I backed out. Still not over, but at least they don’t have my money!

    Please beware of this company!
    This group has several different names:

    • Silver Law Center
    • Phillips Law Center
    • Phillips Law Group
    • Randall Law Group
    • Forest Law Group
    • Forest Law Center

    There are many many more! They will keep on scamming and changing their names. Please everyone beware! they promised me a loan modification approval and instead I got a denial and no phone calls.

    Let me tell you how they operate! First they will have a person call you basically asking you for few information based off of a a lead system they have. They will call you constantly and act like they can help you. You then will get a call from various individual calling themselves an underwriter. They will then ask you for an UPFRONT FEE! They will constantly call you and then when you pay because you need help they stop calling you. Please be aware of these scammers!

    There different steps that these con artist take! they will get your money and a girl by the name of Veronica Guitereezz will call and tell you who you can call. When you are done speaking with her you will try to contact the people and no one will ever pick up! NO ONE!

    I recall myself calling constantly and no one would ever pick up. One day a gentleman by the name of Hennery Tren picked up the phone and assisted me. He ask me what Problems I have and got me to talk to people, but he keep repeating that he is not a processor and can only help to get me to talk to other. I call in many time and i realize that the only reliable person i get is Hennery, so I keep calling and emailing him for answers.

    It seem like the whole company the only person that pick up the phone is Hennery. Soon, I call my lender myself and found out nothing has been done with my file and this Law center has been lying to me the whole time. They do nothing and keep lying. I found out there is many processor I name them all here for you. Rosie Garcia, Betty Betancur, Betty Green, Rose Cruack, Nancy Grosso. When you talk to these People they will lie their heart out to you and nothing good will come out! Please be aware!

    If you ever ask for a refund they will get you to talk to Nancy and then a man by Robert Newton also known as Bobby Gamboa (This is his real name). Please beware this man is RUDE AND VERY STUPID. HE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MORTGAGE.

    This man hang up on me and is very rude over the phone! The only way you will ever get you money back from these scammers is by going through your State Attorney general! I got mine back! go get yours!

    Please report this company and spread the words! This company is A BIG SCAMMMMMMMM! BEWARE!

    We were SCAMMED!!! By Phillips Law Center – BRENT RANDALL PHILLIPS himself. We filed a complaint with the BBB and BRENT PHILLIPS lied his ass off and that was the end of that. We didn’t get our $3000 back and BBB said … oh, well….we tried. The case was closed and so much for trying. EVERYONE PLEASE BEWARE. We continue to get Phillips Law Center’s fraudulent flyers in the mail every few weeks or so. Why isn’t that guy in jail??

  5. Todd says:

    Paul, this info may help answer your questions. I was also solicited by the Randall Law Group and found out this info:
    Website stating Marlon E. Messer and Jason G. Khano work for Randall Law Group
    http://randalllawgroup.com/about/

    The link to Phillips Law Center stating that Marlon E. Messer and James G. Khano work or did work for Phillips Law Center
    http://phillipslawcenterplc.com/about-us/attorney-bios/

    The better business bureau report on Phillips Law Center. This is an “F” rating with 29 complaints and 25 having a problem with your product/service.

    Hi JL,

    My name is paul and i’ve been trying to research complaints against this Brent Randall Phillips.

    We are in a similar situation as urself,seeking loan modification and the Randall law group, headed by Brent Randall Phillips has offered us that option but are asking for 3,500 to be deposited in an escrow account 1st.they say it will not be touched till After the new loan is secured.We are tempted but Very leary.

    From what i hear this Randall person is belong to many various law groups with differing names,just as you have stated. may i ask, what has happened in ur case? do u know for certain this Randall Law Group is a scam? any assistance is appreciated, i feel for ur situation and hope we can alert others if this person is continuing to ripoff people..

    I’ve been looking for complaints but have only found urs and 1 other who also stated being asked for $3,000…

  7. J.L. Moulton says:

    We have been SCAMMED! We paid Phillips Law Center $2,995.00 August 2011. They said that they were experts in getting mortgage companies to work with them. We were told that they would get our mortgage modified so that we would not lose our home. Today is 11/30/2012 and NOTHING has been done by Phillips Law Center to assist us in getting our mortgage modified.

    They simply took our money and SCAMMED us! We filed a complaint with the BBB in California but Brent Phillips lied and worked the system so that the case is now closed and there is no way for us to comment any further. We were told that the only thing we can do is go after him in small claims court.

    Brent Phillips said on the final BBB report that we (the people trying to obtain mortgage modification) no longer claim that we were scammed – THIS IS REDICULOUS AND IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!!!

    Brent Phillips is a total crook and needs to be arrested and placed in jail. He changes the name of his law firm every couple of months to cover up his criminal activity. WE DO STILL CLAIM THAT BRENT PHILLIPS SCAMMED US AND TOOK $2,995.00 FROM US AND DID NOTHING TO MODIFY OUR MORTGAGE. All he did was leave a few messages on the voice-mail of the Wells Fargo mortgage phones.

    There was no follow up and nothing was accomplished. BRENT PHILLIPS TOLD US TO FILE FOR BANKRUPTSY! HE PROVIDED THE NAME AND NUMBER OF A BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY!!! DO NOT BE SCAMMED BY BRENT PHILLIPS, PHILLIPS LAW CENTER, FARMERS LAW GROUP or any other name he is going by at this point in time.
