Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Vanguard Documenting Agency, at that address, has a D- rating with the Better Business Bureau. The notes on the report indicate that this company is running a scam where they use tales of a false sweepstakes to bilk people out of money. The false sweepstakes scam is rampant, and some people have lost tens of thousands of dollars, or more.

I can't find any information on the other two companies - neither has a BBB rating. The BBB doesn't function in Australia, and the Canadian company sounds like it's a law firm, which isn't something the BBB typically has records on. If it is, ask the lawyer you are dealing with for his bar number. Then, check with the Law Society of British Columbia to see if he's heard of them.

I'm not sure what Client Services is. If it's a company that's purporting to offer some sort of work from home credit card processing service, that is usually a scam. I tried to look up the company, but it's such a generic name, that I didn't get anything concrete. I did see scam warnings for companies with that name and similar, but the warnings didn't give an address. So, if you can give me more information on what they do, or a website, I'll try to dig up more on that company.

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.
