My family business became behind in our Federal taxes a few years ago. Over time the I.R.S. began assessing penalties and interest...before long we were facing a SEVERE problem... We made the mistake of hiring LARSON FINANCIAL, INC in Westminster, Co. They charged as a LARGE FEE and we have not received any help from them what-so-ever. We are still being hounded by the I.R.S. and are now out $3,500. We even used our mortgage payment money to hire them and GOT NOTHING IN RETURN! So it looks like now our family will need to close it's doors!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Defend Your Website

AUTHOR: Peter Fotopoulos - ()

I'd like to have the name of a spokesperson for Rip Off Report and a phone number so consumer advocate Tom Martino can have that person on air to defend your business model and ROR founder Ed Magedson's criminal history.

Don't be cowards. If you have nothing to hide, you'll accept my challenge.

What's this?

I worked for Larson Financial for about three years. Jack and Ron Larson are honest people who started a tax resolution company with an emphasis on customer service and honesty.

The so-called complaints against Larson are fabrications. If Larson really cleaned out your bank account, why don't you sue them and file a complaint with the Colorado Attorney General?

I've worked for three companies in the tax resolution industry, and know that some companies pay Rip Off Report to delete complaints about them.

Ripoff Report founder Ed Magedson is a criminal and scam artist. Check out this link: (((REDACTED)))


EDITOR’S NOTE: ..setting the record straight.
Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, even when it is about us.  We understand that people who have complaints written about them are upset and want to place blame somewhere, especially if they feel the content of the Reports are false.  We also understand that individuals want to blame our website rather than where it belongs – on the person who wrote the Reports in the first place.  Using the same method that we provide free of charge to all of our users, we would like to “set the record straight” as to the comments posted about our website through this Rebuttal. 

 Every user of our website has the opportunity to tell their side of the story, for free, just as we will do here.  We certainly encourage users to “set the record straight” and tell their side of the story by using the free methods available to them before they consider other paid Ripoff Report programs (such as our VIP Arbitration Program or the Corporate Advocacy Program) or alterative avenues (such as filing a lawsuit against the Author of the report) that cost money.  After all, all we know is that users of our site affirm, before posting a Report, that the information is truthful and accurate and the user acknowledges that the information will become a permanent record.  This is why we allow Reports, Comments, Rebuttals and Updates, for free, by anyone (including the person/company posted about) who has information to share about the situation.  This includes the ability to upload documents that support the position that is being advanced.  By doing so, all sides of the story are able to be heard so other users of the site can make an educated decision about the situation for themselves. We encourage people to stick to the facts and write calmly worded accounts of the situation. 

 It is clear that the author of the above Rebuttal is upset about the content that the original Report Author wrote about them and seemingly wants to blame Ripoff Report for providing a forum where people can come and openly comment about their experiences.  Again, we encourage people to stick to the facts and write calmly worded accounts of the situation.  Further, it’s absurd to propose that Ripoff Report, which is an open and interactive website, should not be available for people to make comments without fact checking every single statement of fact posted.  With that kind of rationale, one could kiss the internet goodbye.  Do you think that Facebook or Twitter or any other mainstream interactive websites, including news blogs, would exist if you told the users that no one could post any comments about anyone, or anything without first fact checking everyone’s comments?  Of course not!  To require such action would be to stifle the freedom of speech and the free exchange of information and ideas.  Ripoff Report is “for consumers, by consumers” and, in fact, our Terms of Servicesay, at paragraph 3, “Opinions, advice, statements, offers or other information or content made available through ROR are those of their respective authors and not of [Ripoff Report] and should not necessarily be relied upon.  Such authors are solely responsible for the accuracy of such content.  [Ripoff Report] does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information on ROR and neither adopts nor endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice or statement made.”  Ripoff Report does not hold out that any information posted by users of the website is accurate or necessarily reliable.  We encourage people to conduct thorough research, through more than one forum/medium, before making final decisions about an particular individual or business.  After all, no business can please 100% of their customers 100% of the time.  Sometimes there are miscommunications.  Sometimes a business’s staff member is having a bad day.  Sometimes the customer is having a bad day.  Warranted or not…all businesses get complaints.  We believe it’s how businesses take care of the complaints that separates good businesses from the rest.

 The above Rebuttal author had the opportunity to write a calmly worded Rebuttal to explain their position regarding the Report at issue.  They did so, in part – but then chose to lash out at Ripoff Report and Ed Magedson by writing their own version of the truth claiming that they “know some companies pay Rip Off Report to delete complaints about them” and further making serious allegations about Ripoff Report and its founder, Ed Magedson.  For the record, Ripoff Report does not have a single program that allows for removal of complaints.  Sometimes, however, situations may warrant redacting of information.  If you are looking for REAL and CURRENT information, you have to do your homework.  It’s important to do REAL research and not simply believe everything you read on the internet and take it as gospel – including information found on this site.  We are in the technology age and people and businesses, deserving or not, will be blogged about.  Ripoff Report itself falls prey to internet trolls who have nothing better to do than bash and complain.  Again, DO YOUR RESEARCH before assuming that everything you read on the internet is true.

 Consumers – if a business reaches out to you to try and resolve a problem, whether it be through postings on our website or other avenues, we encourage you to work with the business and work through the situation with fairness in mind.  Sometimes a resolution just cannot be reached and each party is entitled to his/her opinion about the situation.  We don’t condone businesses trying to take advantage of consumers – that’s why our website was started in the first place.  At the same time, we don’t condone consumers, other business competitors, or disgruntled ex-employees or partners trying to take advantage of businesses either.  To all parties:  Keep it calm.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair. Do your research.  Don’t be the kid that gets caught copying test answers from your neighbor who actually has the worst grades in class.  Make appropriate educated decisions based on the most reliable, up to date and current information available.

 We thank you for taking the time to read this Rebuttal and allowing us to “set the record straight.”
