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.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

On Saturday the 7th my wife went to a car dealership to
On Saturday the 7th my wife went to a car dealership to explore getting a car through her company. She was told by her employer to go to the dealership and select the car. At the dealership she informed them that was what she was there to do. She asked the salesmen if he know about this type of transaction. He said no, but he would talk to someone who would. When he returned he told her that the person in the office said they she needed to proceed with the purchase of the car and turn the paperwork into her HR department. My wife was concerned with the response and the salesmen again went in to talk with the person in the office. He came back as said that the person said he is sure they do this all the time. As we proceeded through the process she continued to say if this is not the process I will not be able to purchase the car. She was assured repeatedly this was how it was done not to worry. When they presented her with the papers for the lease she again said I do not think I will do the lease with the dealership I think it is with the company that deals with her employer. She was told that no what is done you setup the lease and the third-party company will pay all the expenses once she turns the paper work into her employer. She expressed this concern throughout the process with the person the salesmen had talked to in the office, the insurance people, and the finance person. All of whom said not to worry this is how it is done. The only person who said he was not sure was the finance person, but he deferred to the salesman and manager from the office. Today my wife was able to talk with her HR department they informed her that was not how the process was to be done. She told my wife that they had worked with this dealership in the past and they completely understand how it operates, but that they continue to mislead people and talk them into signing paper work that is not the way to do this. Is there some recourse we have with the dealership to undo what has been done and do it the proper way? … read more
