SEO Reputation Management at its best!

 A good education always costs you something.  In an effort to obtain an EIN for my LLC, I did a websearch to find how I might submit a request to the IRS.  My websearch came up with simplefilings.com.  In fairness, I did not read the fine print on their website, so shame on me.  Having no experience in this matter and needing to obtain the Tax ID, I gave my credit card information and paid $177 to file.  A few minutes later I received an email from them, indicating that, unbeknownst to me, I already had an EIN, although I never received a letter indicating this.  Sure enough I called the IRS.  The IRS informed me that I had been scammed since they could have just as easily given me the EIN over the phone for FREE, even if I didn't already have the tax number I was seeking.  When I called simplefilings.com, I was told that they would refund my money but keep $50 for their trouble.  When I informed the agent what the IRS told me, she said I should have read the website more closely.  Even if I had, what did they do in five minutes that warranted $50 of my money?   So please, be warned, do not give these people one dime for what you can get for free.  I can only be grateful that I didn't pay the full $177 for something I could get for free.  Stay away from these people.  My bank says I can't recover my money since I agreed to their terms, so learn from my mistakes.
