Green, Jason Green, Chris Rascionato, Tom Liguori, Barry Cohen, JosephRivera, Michael Dreitlein, Peter Orena, Marilyn Mader, Corey Singer, Karen Clark,Howard Gelfand, Brett Margolin, Dan Phillips, and Kevin Allison (collectively,"Defendants"), hereby allege the following based upon personal knowledge as toPlaintiffs and their own acts and documents, and information and belief
as
to all othermatters based upon,
inter alia,
the investigation conducted by and through Plaintiffs'attorneys, which included, but was not limited to, a review
of
Defendants' publicdocuments, public filings, interviews
of
Plaintiffs and other homeowners and personswho have had contact with Defendants, and information readily obtainable on the Internet.
Preliminary Statement
1.
Plaintiffs are a group
of
homeowners who were defrauded out
of
thousands
of
dollars as a result
of
loan modification scams perpetrated by Defendants.

2.
Defendants belong
to
a growing industry
of
fraudulent loan modificationcompanies operating in the

scam is labeled as a "retainer." Homeowners thus are lured into believing that loanmodifications are the domain
of
attorneys, and that they cannot enter into the loanmodification process without legal representation.
4.
Defendant David M. Green ("Green"), an attorney admitted in
New
York,
New
Jersey and the District
of
Columbia, has developed and led the loan modificationscam at issue in this Complaint. He is at the center
of
a sprawling network
of
interconnected companies that operate either under the guise
of
professional law firmsdirected by or affiliated with Defendant Green, or as non-legal companies crosspromoting Defendant Green's legal services. The corporate Defendants, which are also3
