Another Florida-Based Loan Modification Outfit Tagged With Civil Suit; Allegations Point To A Foreclosure Relief Scam Operation, Says Ohio AG

In Cincinnati, Ohio, Courthouse News Service reports:

  • The Ohio attorney general says a Florida-based outfit called the American Residential Law Group is bilking Ohioans in a foreclosure-relief scam. Despite its name, nothing in the state's complaint indicates that the two men who run the business are lawyers.

  • Ohio sued the Fort Lauderdale-based business and the two men who run it, Oscar Estevez and Joel Jacobi, both of Miami. The attorney general says the men charge $1,395 to $3,350 for their purported services in "debt adjustment," but "often failed to perform the services listed in the contract."
