Review 6/15/2010
This company sent us a letter stating that their client, State Farm, was suing us for $12,500. The letter stated that we had only 10 days to send them this money or they can go as far as garnishing paychecks, putting a lien on the house or contacting the DMV to have licenses revoked. We contacted Goldsmith and Hull and NANCY GARCIA was extremely unprofessional due to her immediate rudeness, her grammar skills, tone of voice and choice of words. She hung up on us more than once and did her best to cause animosity with us. The only purpose as to why we attempted to contact Goldsmith and Hull was to figure out why were getting sued and Nancy demanded to only speak to who the letter was addresses to. We also contacted State Farm to figure out why they were suing us and they were not able to help us much because the letter that Goldsmith and Hull sent us had no reference number that they can refer to, which they found extremely odd. While State Farm attempted to put the puzzle pieces together, I contacted the FBI and an FBI agent was extremely kind enough to offer to give Goldsmith and Hull a call to see if he can get any info as to why we were getting sued. A State Farm agent finally was able to get us on a three-way call with a State farm agent, us and Nancy Garcia. Nancy first attempted to get our social security number to help identify us which we refused to give her. She then gave us a driver's license number and a date of birth that matched no one in our home. Nancy then stated to just forget about it and that it's nothing for us to worry about. After that phone conversation, I called back that State Farm agent who stated that she felt the phone conversation with Nancy Garcia was bizarre and found it weird that she wanted to get off of the phone as soon as she found the info she provided did not match any one in our household. Aside from Nancy's bizarre behavior, she also found it weird that the letter Goldsmith and Hull sent us had no reference number for State Farm to refer to and that they requested the payment to go directly to them. The letter stated that State Farm was an automobile insurance company and if we were being sued for automobile issues, the payment should be given to an insurance company. In addition, the letter stated that they made several attempts to get a hold of us. They never attempted to get a hold of us before this letter and we immediately found it weird that if State Farm was suing us, that they did not attempt to get a hold of us before suing us. The State Farm agent expressed that she was going to get a hold of their corporate office to see if in fact Goldsmith and Hull has a company that they actually hire. She had more than reason to believe this was a hoax. The FBI agent that was so kind enough to help me by attempting to call Goldsmith and Hull said that Nancy told him that the case had been resolved and that there was a mix up. I can not conclude that this company is in fact a fake law firm or a fake collection agency based on my single experience. However, PLEASE, based on my experience, if you ever have to deal with this company just double check and do extensive research before settling with the idea that you may owe them money because there is a chance that you may not!
