A Piece of Work

Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you.

Dear Rob,

After hearing about the work attorney Melissa Huelsman is doing in the foreclosure rescue-rescue business, I thought it appropriate to recommend her to a couple I’d heard about.

Foreclosure Rescue-Rescue Attorney
Melissa A. Huelsman

They are involved in a foreclosure rescue gone bad and are being evicted, losing all their equity in the process.

A couple months ago, thinking I was helping, I gave them Melissa’s number and suggested she’d be a good one to talk to.

Wrong.


No help whatsoever

They met with her and at least according to them, haven’t heard much of anything since. And although they continue to leave messages, their phone calls go unreturned.

Now, nine weeks later, with little time left and not hearing anything from Melissa, they’ve asked me to help.

I thought I’d start with Melissa.

Here’s my email . . .

To: Huelsman, Melissa
Subject: Weaver matter

Hello, Melissa Huelsman,

As you know, I recommended you and your office to the Weavers, hoping you could assist them in their foreclosure rescue matter.

According to the Weavers, you met with them and now, for whatever reason, refuse to return their phone calls. As you can imagine, they now are about out of time and need to hear from you immediately.

Please contact them to let them know your intentions. They deserve at least that from you.

I feel badly, having recommended you to them and you apparently not caring enough to treat them with even the most minimal respect.

— Joe Kaiser

And her response . . .

Mr. Kaiser,

I will not speak with you about the Weavers or anyone else who has sought out legal advice from me. That would be a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct and the attorney-client privilege. I understand that they have retained attorney xxx in Tacoma and you can contact her if you so desire, although she is bound by the same rules as I regarding discussions with third parties.

Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you. You should absolutely recommend some other attorney to those with whom you speak and work, and never contact me again in any fashion.

No cameras, apparently

Obviously, she doesn’t care about people like the Weavers.

At least not enough to return their phone calls to let them know whether or not she’ll help. Apparently, in her book at least, it’s okay to leave people hanging, even if they’re on the verge of losing their homes.

And did I ask her to discuss their case with me?

Of course not.

I simply requested she return their phone calls so they can do whatever they need to do to save their home. To make it about me is beyond ridiculous.

Likewise, the venom spewed in her statement “I do not need nor desire referrals from you” is more than a little troubling. Clearly, she’s got issues of her own here.


Me Me Me Me Me

But, my favorite line from her email, after thinking about it for the last 24 hours, is this . . .

Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you. — Melissa Huelsman

Is it possible Melissa believes I recommended the Weavers go see her because I was interested in what Melissa needs or desires?

How goofy is that?

I sent the Weavers to her because I believed she could help them save their home, not because I thought she could use more business.

Excuse me for thinking that’s what she does.


Thanks for nothing, Melissa

If you happen to see Melissa at some Foreclosure Rescue Scam conference, Rob, please let her know I will never recommend her to anyone for anything.

Noooo problem.

And, even though she’s asked me not to, I contacted her again . . .

You are a piece of work, dear.
— Joe Kaiser

Must run.

Someone’s got to help the Weavers, and that someone sure ain’t Melissa Huelsman.

In the arena,

Joe Kaiser

    Joe I think your name has been tainted in the professional world.

    The good news is that people haven’t stopped believing in you and your solutions. When I think of Consumer protection I think those professionals out there should help everyone they possibly can. As your proof shows, some professionals aren’t providing a good and valuable public service.

    Let’s just call Joe as we see him, a good businessman that saves families. Fire fighters save families, police save families, I think it’s fair to say we can put Joe in that equation. After all the are all just doing their jobs.

    It’s almost like it’s his duty, only he doesn’t have a boss paying him, but he should get paid for saving families, shouldn’t he? With all these “Joe’s” out there, imagine how much WORSE this foreclosure crisis would be.

    I for one want to tell all those “Joe’s” out there, thanks, you do make a difference.

    Joe,

    Have a very Merry Christmas and a Battle Royal New Year. That Tom Petty song never meant much to me before I listened to it here. It’s as inspiring as you are. You’ve got A LOT of people pulling for you Joe.

    Exactly what useful purpose does she serve, again? Something like rescuing folks who have already been rescued by you? Oh, yeah… I forgot. They didn’t know they were scammed and her mission in life is to let them know that.

    But she won’t do the initial rescuing to begin with? Ugh, yeah, that would mean actually having to roll up her sleeves and doing useful work that folks are willing to pay for. It’s that risk/reward/responsibility thing again. That’s why she doesn’t want your referrals. Talks tough about problems that don’t exist, but couldn’t pull off a REAL rescue that exists right now in front of her nose… if she wanted to. Who is the real scam artist?

    Greetings,

    I dont think that she does foreclosure rescue work for homeowners. What she does is help homeowners sue foreclosure investors and “rescuers”.

    Thank you.

    La, la, la, I once knew an attorney that desired ‘easy’ pay.
    So he chased closely behind the ambulance all day.
    He never said he’d heal whilst vulturing ‘a deal’.
    Just ‘wresting’ , “my dock on the bay”, la, la, la……
