Brookhaven, PA asked in Contracts and Collections for Pennsylvania

Q: Can I revoke Limited Power of Atty with Asset recovery company? They stopped answering questions once I signed.

The tax borough told me they could hold the funds up to three years. I went to them in February 2022 with a notarized letter requesting my funds. They told me they needed it in order to release my funds. The tax borough said check back in a year! I received a letter from this Asset recovery firm saying the tax borough and or county governments stall with releasing money and there is only a limited time to get it. They made me believe I wouldn't get my money without their help. I signed to receive my check today and they tell me it has to go to the Asset Recovery company so they can take the fee first. I signed paperwork May 18, 2022. They requested my funds on May 24, 2022. I'd appreciate any advice as soon as possible. I only have until the end of the business day today. Thanks in advance.

A: Sounds like you may have been scammed. If I understand correctly this Asset Recovery company had you agree to have the check sent to them so they could cash it and take their fee. You should speak with an attorney and have the agreements and paperwork reviewed. You may be fine, but it also may not. Check with an attorney.
