[redacted] a. [redacted] promised to return ($680)
money payed for citizenship and has threatened and is denying paying money back for over 2 months.
In July of 2012 [redacted] started legal immigration paperwork for myself and my family. He had asked for $100 for each application and a money order for $680 for the each citizenship fee. When we gave him the payments, he wanted them blank so he could stamp and send to U.S. department of homeland security. In Sept. of 2012 I received a letter from immigration stating I had yet to pay the fees and to make a payment within the 14 days.I contacted [redacted] and he asked me to fax him the paperwork and he would handle it. I called back several times to seek a status but I did not get any response after I had contacted him. 2 weeks later Immigration sent a final notice that my application had been denied due to lack of payment. I have tried reaching out to [redacted], but he refused to see me at his office or take my calls. November 28th I finally got a hold of him and he clearly stated he HAD cashed in all the money orders into his personal bank account. When I told him what he did was illegal and asked for a refund he asked to give him a day (until nov.29th) to go to the bank and get me a cashier check. We made an agreement to meet on Nov.29th at 3p.m at his office for the full refund. November 29th arrived and he refused to meet with me for my refund and threatened me with a restraining order. I had made a police report and I'm taking this matter to the department of homeland security and will proceed with legal action. I have all proofs of documentations and letters from Mr. [redacted] and the U.S.Department of Homeland Security if needed.
