Omni Financial started pursuing my business in 2011. I can't remember the dates but they would periodically call me and tell me how aggressive the IRS would become in collecting monies owed to them and how we were good candidates to have our balance greatly reduced.  I blew them (Omni) off approx. 3 times and told them that I was doing it on my own and couldn't afford to hire an outside agency as at that time I had moved in with my mom to be her caregiver (who had Alzheimer) and had given up my job to help. 

Approximately the 4th time they called, a Tammy Strang, caught me at a weak moment (my Mom had recently passed away and I was dealing with putting all her affairs in order and the IRS was threatening liens and garnishments).  She said that we could get on  a payment plan of $25 monthly (whereas for the past 2 years we had been paying the IRS $100 monthly on a payment plan and to this day still are). At the time we owed the IRS $13,000.00 and the DOR $800.00 and still do.  To this day the figures have not changed at all.  What I'm saying is that Omni had me go through weeks and weeks of documenting every penny we paid and to who.  Birth cert., death cert., marriage licenses, RMV licenses, insurance policies, etc . . . They invaded every part of my life and what bothered me most is that they knew that I was dealing with the recent death of my Mom and the selling of the family estate which my parents had to put a reverse mortgage on due to medical bills.  I am telling you this because these people are heartless and because of my position I did feel like I needed help and did let my guard down. 

In the first month I gave Omni $1250.00.  They said that I would be in safe mode at this time, meaning that there could be no liens or garnishments.  A week later the DOR levied my husband's bank account.  When I called Omni and asked about this, their answer was that they were not hired to take care of the State part of the tax (from 2005 and 2006).  During this time I had approx 4 conversations with this Tammy Strang who promised the world and  kept telling me that I would be talking to MY "Team of Lawyers" as soon as they heard from the IRS (I am still waiting for this conversation ! ! !).  I have documents to verify everything that I am telling you and  supposedly our phone conversations were recorded.  Right around Christmas 2012 Tammy Strang (Who as far as I am concerned IS Omni Financial, as I never spoke to anyone else except a Renee Simpson, two times to back up Tammy's talk (like what was my husband's pay in October of 2011), she tried to get another $3,000 in payments because her supervisor said that we were so appropriate for some other type of resolution (some kind of compromise). She told me that she would be revoking POA right after Christmas and that I was to follow up their processes on my own.

The only paperwork that I ever saw from them were the forms giving them POA and a 2" stack of papers that I sent to them when they asked for my financial life story (it was a copy of what I sent to them) and a copy of how the "Lawyers" whom I never spoke to, got paid.  The IRS as of yet has nothing on file from them except papers revoking my so called lawyers who are no longer employed by Omni.  I am sure that my lawyers are the equivalent of Tammy Strang.  And I'll bet money that all she is, is an admin. person.

Throughout my life when I've done wrong I've had to pay the consequences (and I was ok with that).  Please don't let these people think that they can rob good people and just get away with it. It just isn't right.

I have been in correspondence with Omni Financial and we have come to a resolution which works for both of us in a peaceful and respectful manner.  I feel that they did the right thing to rectify matters and we are parting on good terms.  Thank you A.R. for doing business like a gentleman.
