We posted regarding the good news of the birth of our son, Liam...this was after years of BS from Len and his "staff". and now we'd like to inform the surrogacy community about what has happened with us, and Mid Atlantic Center for Surrogacy/ LEN BROOKS.
We worked with Mid Atlantic Center for Surrogacy for three years... In that time, we were "matched" with three surrogate mothers... This was the most difficult time of our lives, not bc we had difficulty becoming pregnant or having miscarriages, but bc of Len's actions. We feel that our funds were misappropriated and we still have not received a full refund on our escrow acct...
We have a signed contract refunding money that Len agreed that he owes to us. But since Len has stopped taking our calls, email and will not speak to us... this is our only way of getting in contact with him. If you take the total amount of money that Len owes us, subtract what we agreed upon as an amount of refund... Len still makes on like a bandit.
LEN, THIS IS OUR FINAL ATTEMPT TO RECOVER OUR FUNDS. Next, we will begin with our storey making it public online, and in the media. We have already spoken with two talk shows who are interested in our story, two magazines and we are also in the works on a documentary regarding our quest to have children.
Being that we are from Massachusetts originally, and that we are legally married to each other now, the angle that the production company want to focus on is the new American family. Gay families and our adoption of our son... and how we went through **** with you before finally calling it quits and moving on. You will be named publicly and you will not have any recourse, bc everything is documented,
You owe us money and I am tired of your crap, lies and stories.
I will say one final comment to you before I post this message.... We know about documents being falsified... and we will drag J into court as well.
I guess we are not alone in this ongoing problem with Len Brooks of Mid Atlantic Center for Surrogacy.
We have filed a complaint with the BBB, but according to them... MACS and Len Brooks did not respond to their requests for information. We are now in the process of placing a complaint with several other agencies. Today we heard from the New Jersey office of business affairs and the Attorney Generals office. I urge you all to file complaints with the BBB if you have had any issues with this agency.
Len is a LIAR and a THIEF. Len has spoken to me several times regarding his own personal finances (his two car payments 1-$1200 per month, 2-850 per month, his home morg of $4,000 per month.....the list goes on and on).
I have known Len for many years, and considered him a friend until recently. He seems to know exactly what to say and when to say it to keep your hopes up. He takes advantage of a persons desires to be a parent. He uses emotional torture to hold you under his thumb, promises he cannot keep~ but you want to believe him.
If you enter into the world of surrogacy, DO YOUR RESEARCH!,
Rich Shaun and Liam
