Customer Question
A friend told me...

A friend told me that US labor dept was giving out funds to help low income people. They say you have to pay a batch fee in order to receive the money, for imstance if you want $50,000 then you need to send in $500. Is this true or is it another scam?

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

Alabama

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None yet. I was provided a number to call

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes. This info is circling through facebook messenger

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.
