Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

These phone calls are a scam, they are robo calls trying to get people to pay them $500 for non-existent cases. If you owed GE Capital money, you would be getting written notices in the mail and if they had a case against you they would have served you the case with a process server.

Do not fall for this scam.

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.
