Posted by Andrea, a Foreclosure client,
I was a CLIENT of Michael Schonberger's last year when I consulted him about how to handle my house after my husband died.
I signed an agreement for him to provide services if I needed them and I gave him a $1000 deposit.
After 8 months I never received an email from him. Just one phone call. Never received a statement or a recapitulation of services. No services had been rendered and I did not think I was going to have a problem with the house. So I emailed Michael Schonberger and asked for my deposit back.
He refused and said that my deposit had been used towards services rendered. I asked what services and also asked why I had never received a statement.
The agreement I signed did not have an expiration date for the deposit nor did it state anywhere that the deposit was non-refundable. But he still refused to give me my money back.
