Customer Question
I've already tried once...

I've already tried once ... I was scammed by an employee of a publishing firm - one Debbie Rohde. ($3,000 give or take a few cents. This for my late husband's bio. Brought to court, restitution ordered but not received. SPER and court appear unable to do anything.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Queensland

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes, I have a number O 012 919 906

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
