FTC Sends Checks to Consumers Who Paid Brookstone Law and Advantis Law
The FTC is returning more than $164,000 to people who were harmed by a bogus mortgage relief scam that operated under the names Brookstone Law and Advantis Law.
The FTC sued Brookstone and the attorneys who operated it for falsely telling homeowners that they could join so-called “mass joinder” lawsuits against their lenders that would save them from foreclosure and provide additional financial awards—if they paid for a “legal analysis” and other recurring legal fees. The Court ruled that the defendants “made numerous false and/or misleading material statements to consumers,” including falsely claiming that homeowners could get “at least $75,000” or their homes “free and clear.” Although the defendants filed some lawsuits, they failed to file all promised lawsuits and never won any of the lawsuits.
If you get a check, please cash it within 90 days.
