This is a tax preparation scam website run by a Costa Rican girl (Mila Gamboa, AKA Milagro Gamboa, AKA Maria Gamboa, AKA Mila Miranda, AKA Maria del Milagro Gamboa Miranda) and her Canadian boyfriend (Darren Olstad). It is based in Costa Rica. The scammers use social media (facebook, etc.) to recruit their victims, who are mostly international students who have studied in the U.S. and don't know how to file their taxes. In short, once their victims hand over their tax information, the tax refunds are diverted into another account, never to be seen again. When victims complain, they are given all sorts of BS excuses and are told they are being "selfish" and "greedy" for asking for the money that is rightfully theirs, AND that has already been deposited by the IRS into the scammers' bank account(s).
This scam was formerly known as instanttaxback.com. Likely due to the number of complaints, they changed their name this year to simplestudentrefund.com.
