I saw the advertisement on TV about US Tax Shield. It was a good one and I got mislead. This was the first mistake that I made. I trusted someone with great advertisement. The second mistake that I made was trusting the good reviews on the internet. I should have taken some more time to do a bit more research before coming to a conclusion. I finalized about handling my tax problems to US Tax in just 2 days.
I never thought that this would be the return of paying in advance. I paid them $2500 in advance. For this amount, they did was close to nothing. They called the state once which had a tax lien on my bank account. Then they reported it to three different major reporting agencies. However, nothing was accomplished. When I called them asking for the update, they made excuses.
They said that no one would answer from the state, or they could not get in touch with anyone or if nothing worked, they simply said that no one would cooperate. But, this was their job to get it done. That is why I hired them and paid them $2500.
After making those excuses, they said that they could do nothing for my case as they had already made a lot of attempts. Finally, they closed my case. I did not understand. I was already doing that, and I wanted an expert to take over. This was the reason I paid them in full.
When they were not able to do anything, I asked for my money back. I had the right to do that. But, they stopped answering my calls. They even ignored my mails. They put me on hold when they received my call, by mistake.
This was very unprofessional and completely unethical. Wouldn’t it have been better if I had used this money to pay my tax lien, instead of paying these clowns? I had to pay fort the lien anyway. So, my money was wasted and so were my effort and time. How would this company justify the charges that it took from me? And shutting off a client when the problems are not resolved, what kind of company does this.
I believe that US Tax had nothing to do with my loss. They were looking to make some quick money and invest a part of it for the fake advertisement that promises world to you. But, if you would deal with them, you would understand that all their promises are a bait for those who believe companies without doing a depth research about it.
I would not comment much on that, as I did the same thing. But, this was a lesson for me to take care of these things before handing over the money. I could have at least paid them half of the amount. This could have forced them to work for the other half. But, it is already done, and I learned my lesson for life.
