filed chapter 7 in 2008 used Ostling thru there pekin office. paid up front and always a lil more along the way. they bleed you constantly promising to get things done along the way. did most of the research myself. credit checks etc etc . by the time i went to court they sent me to the wrong place." lincoln hotel in springfield." they looked at me like i was homeless wandered in from the street. found out court was 5 blocks away behind a subway sandwich shop of all things, actually had to enter subway go out a side door into a vacant building and find the other pittiful souls to find i was in the right place finally. then no one from my esteemed attorneys office showed up.!when the judge called our name we went forward, he asked who my attorny was i told him ostling but no one has spoken to me or came forward as being my attorny. finally a woman in the back of the room reading a romance novel said they couldnt be there and she was gonna sit in for them. i dont even think she was an attorny and she didnt utter another word thru the whole process. and now 4 years later i just 2 months ago got a local hospital off my back, constanly say they never got theyre letter or papers saying i filed and they were included, also found out that theyres a judgement against my wife in the county courts here for a credit card balance that was included, ostling wont return my calls cant speak to anything but someones voice mail etc etc . THEYRE MUST BE SOME SORT OF ACTION WE CAN TAKE AGAINST THESE HACKS!!!1

I meet with Michael Blissenbach of their staff the first of March was told that the TOTAL COST WOULD BE $969. This consisted of their fee of $550, $306 for the Court filing fee, and $100 for the surrender documents for the home. At that time I PAID THEM $500 in CASH and was given a receipt for same. Their receipts are nothing special and do not bear the firm name or another indication of the Ostling Firm name and I am sure that this is a ploy that they planned carefully in that these are available from ANY OFFICE SUPPLY SOURCE. Thus they can CLAIM THAT THEY NEVER WROTE IT!!! I sent the next 6 weeks playing phone tag. Never getting beyond their telephone BOILER ROOM, they kept sending me to a voice mail, NO ONE WAS EVER available. I finally left a MESSAGE April 20, 2012 THAT ON MAY 1st. I Wanted EVERYTHING READY and I was given a 10am appointment. On May 1 @ 9:15, I finally receive MY VERY FIRST AND ONLY RETURNED PHONE CALL from Mike telling me that NOTHING HAD BEEN DONE YET and that he would give it to his legal ass... the following day to get started. I told him I had hired someone to bring me to his office based on the previously scheduled appointment that was given to me and that they WERE already on their way to pick me up. I was told it would be a TOTAL WAISTE OF TIME for me to come as HE HAD NOTHING READY and had not EVEN STARTED IT. I told him that since I was already committed to pay for the ride I would be PICKING UP EVERYTHING AND WANTED MY DEPOSIT RETRNED TO ME AS THEY HAD PROVIDED NOTHING BEYOND THE ADVERTISED ""FREE""" initial consultation. When I arrived I WAS GIVEN THE DOCUMENTS THAT I had done but was told that a check would have to be sent from their MAIN OFFICE. Today I was able to find their MAIN OFFICE PHONE NUMBER and called inquiring about the refund check and when I should expect it. The lady???? who answered was EXTREMELY RUDE AND TOLD ME THAT THEY had just received the documents (an obvious lie as these are in MY POSSESSION) and that I Wouldn't receive the REFUND FOR MY DEPOSIT minus their HOURLY FEE for ANY WORK that had been performed. WHAT WORK???????? the did nothing. The FIRST MEETING IS ADVERTISED AS FREE -- If they plan on charging me THAT'S FALSE AND MISLEADING ADVERTISING AND THAT IS FRAUD!!! FRAUD IS A CRIMINAL FELANY!!! As I had already done ALL ON THE LEG WORK MYSELF. I went ahead and purchased the software myself and am filing PRO-SE it will only me the Court filing fee of $306 plus the $50 for the software program and my friend can also se the software to do his. Let All join together in a class action against this scum bucket. Begin by filing a complaint at the Illinois Judicial Review and disciplinary board website. https://www.iardc.org/index.html

WE HAVE A MAJOR ADVOCATE ON OR SIDE --- LET'S USE HER !!!
This is what she is trying to do to Ostling's Major Competitor - Let's get her to also do it to Ostling ---
Copied from Illinois Attorney General website: --- Monday October 24, 201
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed lawsuits against three Chicago area companies for fraudulent mortgage rescue and debt settlement schemes that apparently cheated consumers out of thousands of dollars. Madigan filed the lawsuits in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the three companies “took large upfront fees from consumers with a promise to help them obtain a loan modification on their mortgage or to reduce their mounting debt, when in fact, little or no work was performed on the consumers’ behalf.”
In an article on www.hispanicallyspeakingnews.com, Madigan stated, “’These companies are nothing more than scam operations, illegally charging consumers upfront fees but doing no work to help modify their loan or negotiate with creditors. They scammed families out of thousands of dollars while putting people deeper in debt and at higher risk for foreclosure.’”
Suits were filed against Debt Care Financial Group Inc., and its president Malgorzata Baran; Starlex Financial Consulting LLC; Flagship Mortgage Corporation, and its employees Jeffrey M. Entratter and Neil Borland as well as E.A.C. Financial LLC, and its owners Everett D. Pope and Colbi Andry.
In her lawsuit against Debt Care Financial Group and its president, Madigan said the defendant advertised debt settlement and loan modification services in Chicago’s Polish community, promising to reduce the consumers’ debt by 50 to 70%. They charged clients at least $66, 000 for work that was never performed while repeatedly ignoring requests for refunds. In some cases, Ms Baran also allegedly harassed or intimidated her clients.
Starlex Financial and Flagship Mortgage charged clients between $500 and $950 in upfront fees for loan modification services that were never performed; these consumers lost almost $5, 000 in the schemes.
Madigan also alleged that E.A.C charged consumers upfront fees as high as $2, 000 each to help get them a loan modification or resolve their debt. These clients were instructed to cease making payments to their creditors while the alleged debt-relief services were being provided, leaving many consumers facing higher payments than those with which they had started.
The lawsuits seek court approval to close these businesses and obtain repayment for their clients. In addition, the suits seek to prevent the defendants from providing mortgage rescue or debt settlement services in Illinois and to order each defendant to pay civil penalties for violations of the Consumer Fraud or Mortgage Rescue Fraud Act.
It is important to remember that allegations by a government regulator are not factual until proven. However, the allegations made in the above cases are a good reason why you should hire a licensed attorney for loan modification or debt alternatives. Macey Bankruptcy Law can offer bankruptcy alternatives, and can also help you with any of your debt needs, including loan modifications or non-bankruptcy alternatives. We have helped over 100, 000 consumers since 1994 with their debt problems. For your free initial consultation, please call 800-260-1402 or long onto www.maceybankruptcylaw.com.
