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 tshurden@neo.rr.com if anyone reading this has any suggestions. Thank you for your time.

Toby,

My heart goes out to you. I'm happy you posted the scam against you, hough. Let this be a lesson to all the readers--never use your debit ard to order over the Internet or phone. Your debit doesn't always have he same protection as a credit card.

But the crime against you is considered an ACH (automated clearing house) raud because that's how they got it out of your account. Hopefully the ank gave you an affidavit to fill out. If not, march right back to your ank and ask for the appropriate papers. Also let them know you've notified the authorities or plan to if you haven't yet done it.

Call the Las Vegas Financial Crimes Unit and ask for the Fraud Detail Unit at (702) 229-3285. Their FAX number is (702) 229-5626. The Las Vegas police are quite savvy and have these fraudsters operating in their midst regularly.

Also contact your local PD's financial crime unit AFTER you've made contact with Las Vegas. Give the local detective the name of the officer you contacted in Vegas and his number.

What you want is for the Las Vegas PD to investigate your complaint and tell you owns the business so you can take him to small claims court in case he tries to fold up business and you don't get your money back. Once you get the name of the owner write me back and I will tell you where to go from there. Usually the crime of theft is so egregious that small claims judges give you a small award as a punitive measure as well as
actual losses.

Good Luck
The Fraud Chick
