March 25, 2005 I had an appt with JK Harris. They told me at that time that they most definely could represent me. For a fee of $2700.00. I wrote out a check that day for $1350.00 the rest to be paid in 2 months. They also told me that my case was so minor and could easily be settled in less than 6 months. In addition to the ease of my case in stead of owing $13,000.00 Frank, the Des Moines Iowa "recruit" said, that I would probably end up owing $1500.00 to the Federal and approximately $1000.00 to the State of Iowa.

At the time that I hired JK Harris, my husband was unemployed but JK Harris reassured me that my husbands unemployment status would not affect this matter as this was MY tax liability. I had this debt prior to meeting my husband.

Well, after I assigned a "case specialist" who went by the name of Tiffany, she informed me that Dwight WOULD have to be employed prior to an offer of compromise! Well, my Father became deathly ill and in the course of his brief illness and death I was fired my job. I contacted JK Harris, they told me that with my unemployment status I could not do an offer of compromise. I told them that I did have income I had my unemployment check. They said that would not work.

I then took a traveling nurses job in South Dakota. I tried feverishly to contact Tiffany, my case specialist at JK Harris. I never could contact her, I then emailed John "the supposid President of JK Harris" to which I recieved a phone call from a woman named Dee Dee Boseman. She told me that Tiffany was no longer with JK Harris. I said, "well, what happened with all my reciepts, bank statements and so on, how is the offer of compromise coming" Dee Dee informed me that when Tiffany left somehow my file got lost. I would have to collect all of the information again, I did, sent it in. To which JK Harris replied that with me working out of my residential state, I was not in a position to do an offer of compromise.

I returned to my resident got a job, at which time I was told to collect an addition 3 months worth of bank statements, every reciept, car payments, utilities etc and send them in again. I did. Well, it is now November 14, 2006 and to date I have never received any services what so ever from JK Harris.

I wrote to the BBB of South Carolina and JK Harris is "willing" to give me a partial payment of $1943.00 to which I replied to BBB I don't want partial payment I want the full $2700.00. They have until the 16th of November to reply to my response. I am now so angry that I am collecting all of my information that I have on JK Harris and am taking them to small claims court. Now that they have made me mad I am also asking in addition to my $2700.00 I am also asking for the cost of my divorce in addition to pain and suffering.

This company is not only a rip off but secretly they ARE the IRS in JK Harris clothing. The government will get their money one way or the other! I would like to see them 60 Minutes, Dateline, CNN with the people that they have ripped off. Class action law suit? ABSOULETLY!!

Small Claims Works

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

Jenelle, As you can see by other postings, it is the same old scam that JK has perpetuated on you. You are doing the right thing by taking them to small claims court. When you file papers, ask for the maximum allowed in your state. Name JK Harris as the defendnt, and the sales person that you met with as the codefendnant. If that person is not there, get the name of another sales person, that is very important. Sent the papers to their sails office.

When you go to your small claims hearing, ask for "Treble "damages (3x's) the amount asked for. Explain to the judge the hell they have put you through. JK does not appear at these hearings, for they think that they are above appearing, and that the arbitration clause exempts them. Don't listen to any crap they give you. They (JK), must appearing court to argue any points of law, and they won't, for if they do they will have to explain why they haven't performed.

After 30 days, go to a collection hearing, and get a "Capias". That is an arrest warrant for the sales person. You can now have thier ass dragged into court to tell the judge why they haven't paid you. Ususally if you send a copy of that to the sales person, and to JK Harris, you will get you funds very quickly. Also, when they offer to send you your money, DO NOT sign any type of non disclosure agreement, you don't have to. They are being ordered by the court to pay.

Good luck
