I purchased services from the National Audit Defense Network or NADN in January after hearing their ad on a radio commercial. I tried out there services that claimed at least $3,000 in new tax deductions in 30 days or your money back. This guarantee is posted on their web page at (http://www.awayirs.com/our_services/os_yg.htm). I did not get at least $3,000 in tax deductions nor was I satisfied with the service they provide. The services they are selling you are tax planning and irs protection if you get audited. The tax planning services and the tapes they send you are simply condensed information taken straight from the IRS documents you can download from the IRS web page or send away to get them for free. After you join for $710, NADN's way of saving you tax money is to get you to start a small business, claim a higher number on your W4 form thereby putting more money into your paycheck and write your losses off of your taxes at the end of the year. If you don't have a business to start, they do. There whole plan is to get you to join, tell you tax planning strategies already provided for free by the IRS and get you to sell their product. NADN simply put is running a traditional MLM scam with a slick marketing scheme.

I didn't like this service they provide so I requested my money back. I recieved the proper number to return the package they sent me, returned everything, and was told that I would recieve a refund within 45 to 60 days from the day they recieved my package back. They recieved the package of materials back on March 5 and 14 weeks later I still have not recieved my refund. If you take any advice from me DO NOT BUY THIS COMPANIES SERVICES. If you want to save money on taxes, talk to your accountant and pay him $30 for his time.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Shopn2000 solution

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

Every time a person clicks on a banner add in the showcase area (ads on the right side of the screen)of your shopn2000 website, two dollars goes toward paying off your note. If you click the banner add from your home computer the two dollars counts as reportable income. If the banner ads are clicked from a distant computer, $2.00 goes toward paying down your note and no reportable income is accrued by you. This is one way you have eight years to click down your note.Your friends, family and customers can help with this project.

To see the progress on your statistics go to the back office portion of the website. shopn2000.com/backoffice, type in the zip code, create a password and relax a little. You can do this and it's legal. I have a problem advertising the banner for NADN on my site because the National Audit Defense Network is under investigation by the Nevada AG's office. If you don't want to direct your customers to this site call Joseph the web master at Oryion and he will show you how to rotate it out of your front page. It will still be there but it will be harder to find.

NADN is dishonest

AUTHOR: Lawrence - ()

I too have been bamboozled by NADN. They sound friendly and knowledgeable, but don't be fooled. I was promised that by investing with ADA Adventures run by ORION Management I would recoup a tax deduction and tax credit.

These tax advantages would virtually double the money I had invested, or so they said. Since the deductions were based on a selling price of the business worth far more than my investmentI asked numerous questions about who was paying for the site.

I was repeatedly told that an agreement was worked out with advertisers and that this made it a "great deal" for me. When I got my return I found that I didn't even recoup my original investment, so I called ORION Management and Joe Prokopf told me that that I'd fallen into an income level that missed their projections, but that I could role my tax credits into future years.

In the meantime I had sent them thousands of dollars for a second year of this business while awaiting the IRS returns, that as stated above, demonstrated that their projections were off.

I talked to the IRS and did some calculating and found that it would take me upwards of 9 years to eventually take advantage of their "tax breaks". And there's more complications than the 9 years that I won't even get into here, so I called Joe Prokopf back up and he agreed that the investment wasn't in my best interests. He said, and I quote, "I'll take care of it on my end and you take care of it on your end". Without belaboring the minutia details let me just state that they NEVER sent my money back.

I have called dozens of times and they've only called me back a few times, I'vefaxed several letters and they've never responded to them. I've complained to the appropriate departments within their company as best I could. I now realize that they don't care and never did.

I did some more research on this company and it seems that they also have some complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB of Southern Nevada states that they have an unsatisfactory record with the Bureau due to one or more unanswered complaints. You can look at the report on the following web page: http://www.vegasbbb.org/cgi-bin/fillallbdb?RecID=National%20Audit%20Defense%20Network .
