It all started out very nice,I found Power Tax on the internet, I spoke with a Craig Dahl,I told him i closed a business 8 years ago and put my head in the sand from my last obligations. I owed NYS about 15,000 but they wanted 80,000 Craig said no problem that he could get it down to the original amount for a fee of 7000.00 dollars, I thought about for about 2 weeks in which time he would call me every day being the good friend he was ( HA HA ) That he would get this done in 60 to 90 days at most.
I asked how he was going to do this and he told me that there are so many loop holes that the Tax Dept never follow, He also told me it is a barginging process how they make a offer and the state will come back with one usually 2 or 3 times he explained ( I got him to fax me a letter to this fact stating this) I had to go over all my assets and salary and he said i was the perfect candidate for this reduction( again this was done before he got my money).
At that point since he seemed so concerned about me I paid him the money and this is were it all started,I told him i don t use credit cards that i would send him a check,No that will make every thing take an extra weeks time due to the mail and the Check clearing.( Again he was only concerned with my well being)
So i wired him the 7000.00 out of my bank account. Funny that was the last time I ever Spoke with this Craig Dahl I later find out that he was just a salesman not the owner of the company, He told me he was one of the partners..
Now the fun begins they had a girl name Stacy start my case she filed wrong amounts on my offer on the amount due to the state she had no clue what she was doing so after about 4 to 6 weeks of me always correcting her mistakes. thay told me she left to have a baby( i heard from somebody in the company she was fired) So now they put kay Tse on my case. she seemed pretty good at first at least she could get the numbers right.
Well after about 6 or 8 months after she got my case ( Almost 10 months from the time they stole my money) In which i had to call all the time at least 3 times a week to get a call back from her and when i did it was like i was really bothering her, But all i was trying to tell her that the state kept calling me as to what was happening with my case. Then she tells me that i am rude for keep calling her office that she would call me when needed (this never happened)
So after many months they finally made the state an offer Which by the way was 10,000 more than they said it would be. there offer was 25,000 Nys came back and said it would have to be at that due to my salary and my homes equity,now i am told this..
Now they have someone name Gohar come into the picture that see would be helping Kay well she was worse than Kay with return phone calls to the point i did not think she even existed, So after many weeks of phone calls i tried a different way i called there sales # and got somebody to give me to the VP named Barry Krevoy ( another real freind he was personally going to see this thru completion) well he got Gohar to call me.
Well after about another month or so ( It is now 3/18/08 I wired them there money on 3/23/07) I was told i should pay the full amount due, that because my equity and my salary i could not get the reduction that they had promised me that NYS wanted the whole amount.And that that would not speak to me anymore because i was rude to them that i called them too many times ,and would hang up on me, so of cause i would call back after all i hired them and gave them 7000.00 dollars, they must have caller ID because when i would call they would pick up the phone and put on a tape recording of the terminator movie with there gov Arnold S on it.
I thought that it must be me, but after speaking to LA BBB #909-825-7280. I found out that there were at least 40 other complaints against them and there rating was a F the worst any body can have ( when i told power tax this they said that they were suing them for deformation of character now is that a joke or what)
Then i spoke with the federal Trade commionssion This is were we can all get our help from,, we need every body that they did this too to make a complaint ,they have the power to shut them down and hopefully recover some of our money.. There # is 877-382-4357 then you need to call Cal Attorney Generals office 800-952-5225 .
We have all get together and shut them down look how many of us that have the same complaint with them and than add up how much money it is,, it is in the Hundreds of Thousands.. Please make these calls and end there criminal ways. I have also contacted the LA times I will be speaking with a reporter on it this week.. LETS SHUT THEM DOWN
