My sister, who is not well, answered an ad in the newspaper that was from Stoltmann Law. After speaking with the person and giving them her personal and identifying information she was told someone would contact her. She had already decided not to pursue the issue they were advertising for because she couldn't afford the up front fees and future fees because of her medical bills.
Nobody ever called her back but not too long after her call with Stoltmann law office she found out a credit card had been opened in her name and it had $10,000.00 in charges on it. I got her a credit report and someone even applied for a mortgage in her name. Fortunately they didn't get it. We have spent countless hours trying to straightening up this mess. She knows better than to give information like that to someone over the phone but she said they told her "it would help her" if she did and she believed them.
I've always heard stories about dishonest lawyers stealing money from the elderly but I never thought it could happen this way. Stay away Andrew Stoltmann and his lawyers or they might steal your identity too. My sisters credit is now ruined. Thank you Andrew Stoltmann!
