National Audit Defense Network NADN made me feel like a victim of extortion with their repeated IRS threats and demands for more money Las Vegas Nevada
I paid the initial price of $1412.95 for a 4 year membership, that guaranteed me a refund of at least $3,000.00 a year, or I would get my money back.
My husband and I both lost our jobs with the company we worked for, and I had called NADN to see if I could get a refund on the 4 year membership. The gentleman I spoke with told me that I would have to wait to see if I actually got the $3,000 refund I had been promised and if not, then I could get my refund.
The following month, my husband was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. I also found out that he had been spending his rolled-over retirement money and that we owed the IRS $12,000.00 in taxes and penalties! I began seeing a mental health counselor to help me get through the barrage of obstacles I was facing. We paid the $12,000 and my husband died in August. I was devistated about the husband AND the money situation!
Rita Glazier from NADN called me in September and when I told her of my husband's death and the money he had spent, she quickly told me that I needed a home based business so I could take advantage of the tax credits that came with being a business owner. She also told me that I had to incorporate my business and that my new online business would enable me to get special tax breaks from the IRS because it would be compliant with the American's With Disabilities Act. I told her that I knew NOTHING about running an online business & she assured me that I didn't have to know ANYTHING about it -
A company called Oryan Management would take care of everything for me! I was told that I would have a promissory note from Oryan Management but, not to worry, I had eight years to pay it off and $2.00 would be deducted from the note for every click on each store in my "Mall". That would have the note paid off in no time. (It turns out that I only get $2.00 from TWO sites out of over 140 stores in my mall.) I fell for all of this, and I paid her $2495.00 for my "Mall-For-All" website, $500.00 for my "marketing agent" and $3995.00 to incorporate my business.
I was starting to feel good about the idea of having my own home based business and a little income to see me through my retirement years. I was proud that deaf and blind people would have access to my mall. I opened a bank account for my "profits" and filed all the paperwork with the state of Louisiana for my new business. (My bank account is STILL empty as I have made NO money from my business!)
All together, I have paid NADN over $20,000 for various "upgrades" that turned out to be MORE Mall-For-All websites with an additional $8,000 promissory note for each! (I have 4 "websites" total, now!) I was NEVER told that the upgrade was ANOTHER website!! I FINALLY realized I was involved with a not-so-honest company when I ran out of money to give them at the end of 2003. I would get phone calls everyday from a different person telling me that I had "fallen through the cracks" and that the IRS had me "targeted" for an audit if I didn't get a "hit generator" to direct traffic to my mall. At one point I threatened to "throw myself on the mercy of the IRS" and was told that I couldn't do that because I would "have to pay back all that money". I said WHAT MONEY? The guy said the tax credits I was given in 2002. I told him I would take my chances!
I was asked by EACH person, trying to sell me a hit generator, to get a bank loan or to use credit cards to pay for the generator. I would counter by asking each of them for an itemized statement for all the money I had given them. (I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to show for all the money I spent.) Each one of them promised to either e-mail or mail an itemized statement. I finally got my faxed statement - a HANDWRITTEN NOTE with amounts and a description of what I was buying - the IRS will REALLY like that! (I don't even know what some of the items are!)
I was very stupid (and sick) and sent my 2003 income tax information to these people and THEY STILL HAVE ALL MY STUFF! I am compiling a detailed letter to the Department of Justice with times and names and phone numbers of EXACTLY what I have been through. I am going to call the IRS to see what I need to do to get "right" with them and to get on with my life - I had called the IRS and found out that NADN really DID file for an extension for my taxes. (I feel like the little old lady who has been scammed out of her life savings & is too embarrassed to tell anyone how stupid I am!) I would be very interested in anyone who is filing a class action lawsuit against NADN, as I don't belive I can even afford a lawyer now...
