Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I'm a little confused as to how this scheme works. Could you clarify it for me?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no that's ok
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Oh, that’s not a problem with the phone call. The system automatically asks if you want one, but there is no problem declining the request. Could you clarify for me though how this scheme works? Your original post has a few typos so I need some clarification so I can help.

I was wanting to know if this is a scam or how it works.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

This isn't a scam at all. You're chatting live with a licensed attorney. The problem though is that I won't be able to help you unless you describe for me in some relevant detail the nature of your problem and what questions you had about it.

Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I apologize. Well, it's hard for me to say only because I'm not sure how the scam works. Could you rephrase it for me?

Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

It's $5 to post your question and $37 for your written interaction with me. Because my time is limited to answer questions, I want to confirm that this is something with which you would like to continue doing. If so, would you be able to answer my question regarding the description of your situation?

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.

What is the cost. I hired a real estate agent on a 3 month
Good afternoon I hired a real estate agent on a 3 month contract. During that 3 months she brought a person by to look at the house. That person never bid or anything.

I signed a contract to sell and then found out it was the husband of the lady I had for an agent for 90 days.
