• Spectacular!

    I liked your fast, friendly service. You were all knowledgeable in the area of bankruptcy. Your treatment of me as a client was spectacular! You were great at promptly responding to my questions and concerns. I loved that you provided courteous and quick responses to all my questions.
  • Highly Recommended!

    I have worked with Seth and he is the utmost professional in how he works with his clients. If you need an attorney you can trust I would highly recommend the Law Office of Seth Hanson.
  • Very Professional.

    Everyone was very professional and efficient. Seth, and everyone that I had contact with were very knowledgeable. I was very pleased with how we were treated by his staff. My questions were always answered promptly. I was very pleased with the service I received and would not hesitate to refer someone to your firm.
  • Non-judgmental.

    You were very open and answered all of my questions. You never made me feel like I was asking a dumb question. I was comfortable with your knowledge of the law. It was hard for me to make this decision to move forward in my life. Everyone was friendly to me and respectful. Non-judgmental. Every question I asked was answered promptly and appropriately. I would recommend you.
  • More Than Expected!

    I found the firm's representation to be more than what I expected. I was always kept in the loop, all my questions were answered (whether or not I asked more than once the same question), and I felt completely supported by the firm staff when going through this (at times) scary ordeal. Thank you again.
  • Very Impressed!

    I liked that you had very friendly, caring staff. You were all very knowledgeable. Your treatment towards me was excellent and you quickly responded to all my concerns. If a friend asked of your overall impression, I would say that we were very impressed and we would recommend you to them.

Secret Sister Social Media Scam

The Better Business Bureau and local law enforcement are warning those on social media to be vigilant of a popular scam called the Secret Sister Gift Exchange. The scam asks for personal information including names and mailing addresses and promises a return of 6-36 gifts from secret sisters if you send one gift.

Facebook instead of chain letters

The BBB warns, “This is a typical pyramid scheme. This is on Facebook instead of the old way of using letters because social media allows it to spread a lot faster,” the Better Business Bureau warns. “Pyramid schemes are illegal either by mail or on social media if money or other items of value are requested with the assurance of a sizable return for those who participate.”

The message that makes its way around is as follows:

“Welcome to our secret sister gift exchange!! Much easier than it sounds. Here’s how it works:
1) Copy the secret sister insta that I posted on my Instagram, to your own story or page; you can also text people, post on FB, whatever you want.
2) Send one gift valued at at least $10 to the secret sister that is in the NUMBER ONE SPACE BELOW.
3) delete secret sister’s name from #1; then move secret sister #2 to that spot.
4) Add your name to #2 with your info.
5) Then message this info the other ladies that were interested in your post.
1. Person and their address
2. another person and their address
P.S. Don’t forget: move #2 (that would be me) up to #1 and put yours at #2. Or gifts wonโ€™t happen ๐Ÿ˜‚
Then send this to anyone that responds to your post! Thanks a bunch!!! I’m so excited! Feel free to ask me any questions!”

Reporting schemes

The BBB advises, โ€œIf you receive a chain letter by mail, email, or social media, especially one that involves money or gifts, ignore it. Report the post to Facebook by clicking on the three little dots in the upper right corner of the post.โ€
