Unlicensed Loan Modification Services

May 15, 2013

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has received a complaint from a Washington consumer, who received a “mailer” solicitation for loan modification services. The mailer does not identify the entity offering these services, only a phone number: 888-410-8098. This phone number now appears to be disconnected. When called an individual who answered identified the name of the business as the “Litigation Law Group” located in Anaheim, CA, and provided their website as www.litigationlawgroup.net. The website is no longer operational, but when operational it also made reference to itself by the name of Legal Loan Review. Legal Loan Review had a website of www.legalloanreview.com with the same phone number as on the mailer and the same address as for the Litigation Law Group, Inc. This website is no longer operative.

Litigation Law Group, Inc. and Legal Loan Review, Inc. are not licensed by DFI or registered or have an open account with the Washington Secretary of State, Department of Licensing or the Department of Review.

The California Secretary of State website indicates it has issued a business license for the Litigation Law Group, Inc. at 505 S. Villa Real Drive #100, Anaheim, CA 92807 with a Bruce Weiner as the agent for service of process. The California Secretary of State website indicates the entity is now dissolved.
