Wall & Associates Inc. Guerrilla Marketing - Fear Mongering - Deceptive Advertising Houston Texas
I recieved a letter in the mail from this firm marked "personal and confidential" sent from Wall & Associates, Inc from 4801 Woodway Drive in Houston Texas. The letter began by informing me that there is some public record that indicates a federal, state and/or local tax lien being filed against me. Then it goes on to explain how I should consult them about this problem before the IRS comes knocking at my door. By the time I got to the end of the letter and was able to breathe and calm my heart palpitations, I realized that this was only an advertisement and not an official letter as it is made to appear at first glance. I called the office phone number included in the letterhead to ask to speak to the actual attorney whose name is signed E. Kenneth Wall at the bottom of the letter. A very snarky young woman answered the phone and when I asked to speak with this Mr. E. Kenneth Wall about this supposed tax lien, she would not transfer me to anyone but instead began to give me a spiel about "being a matter of public record" etc etc and so on. When I told her that I did not wish to speak with anyone other than the so called attorney himself, then I was transferred to another sales agent, a smooth talking young man who also began a spiel about accessing my information through public records and that I needed to get legal help through this company immediately. I asked him to transfer me to the actual attorney who supposedly drafted the letter to me "personally" with his name signed "sincerely" at the bottom. But to no avail. The person just kept trying to deliver his sales pitch and was talking over me as I protested. It appears that this company, if it is a legitimate law firm, is engaging in a type of guerrilla marketing tactic which uses fear mongering, a practice which is reprehensible and perhaps even illegal. I am not an expert, but this certainly does not seem legal. In any case, I will never under ANY circumstances EVER consult this law firm if I ever happen to need this kind of service. Wall & Associates, Inc will never get my business.
