Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

What you've said so far sounds very much like someone is scamming you. Can you please tell me more about your situation so I can see if I'm able to assist? (If they've stressed how important it is to keep the transaction a secret, that's MORE evidence of a scam and a very good reason you should tell me what's going on. I can keep the conversation private if you'd prefer.)

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
