Customer Question
I joined a singles...

I joined a singles club and they lied to me. I thought they were checking my credit but they had my cards and withdrew 8,000 from my cards. They will not talk to me. I am out of state and am 67 years old. I thought they were going to charge me 167.00 a month but they took all my money from four cards. I will not live long enough to pay it back. Yes I was stupid, but they lied to me. I guess I will just go bankrupt.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And has anything been officially filed?

I am in Arkansas but the transaction was in Texas. My credit card companies filed things. I cannot use the service because it is 300 miles away. I did sign for it, but I didn’t know what I was signing.

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

I reported to Arkansas Attorney General and Texas BBB. Neither one replied. That is all that has been filed.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Did you get a chance to speak with the club about why they withdrew that big amount of money?

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
