I heard on the radio a guy talking about all these ways you can save on filiing your taxes, and a offer for the first 75 callers to recieve a free book guiding you in doing so. I then called in in which they explained I was one of the first 75 callers, and that all they needed was my credit card number for the shipping and handeling charges of $4.95. Once recieving my card number which was my visa debit card number they began with preasuring me into buying there Tax services. Not having the $995.00 they were asking for it made it very easy for me to tell them no.
I was then transfered to another high presaure salesperson in which she began verifing my credit card number for the $995.00 in which I stopped her immediatly and explained I had no intention what so ever on purchasing there services that all I wanted was there free book and was paying the $4.95 shipping charges. She began trying to sell me her pitch, and I stopped her and said "No I don't want, or have the money to give you". I fet real uncomfortable.
The following Monday i was doing my checking account online and my balance was in the negative. To my horror they had charged me on my debit card $995.00 which has put my checking account in some kind of mess. I immediatly called my Bank which it was now three days later and filed a fruadulant charge report and was told it will be at least two weeks before I will refunded the charges, and thats only if they charge it back to my card. I alsi immediatly began making calls to tax ready in hopes that they had made a mistake, and have yet to recieve a call back from them.
I have filed a report with the BBB - Better Business Bureau, and am now filling this one. The damage is done to my checking account, and I am now having problems paying my bills due to the charges I'm am recieving for insufficient funds. Could you Guy's please help, and give me any further action I could be taking against this company. I would get a lawyer, but that too takes money that has already been taken. Can I file a police report? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone reading this has any suggestions. Thank you for your time.
