Complaint Review: Legal zoom - Glendale California
Legal zoom LegalZoom promises to get you legal documents for starting your business and they don't do it at all when you call they stop answering the phone Glendale California
*Author of original report: LegalZoom/Legal zoom is 100% a SCAM!
LegalZoom is a scam! I paid hundreds of dollars for my DBA, EIN and sellers permit on Sept 29 2020. They allegedly filed on the 6th they've hung up on me since then.
When I confronted them on Twitter they acted like they were just then starting to file my DBA documents and then they filed another one without my affidavit of identity-& which you're supposed to do through a notary service then they found it without an affidavit, [I have no idea what they did with my first set of documents maybe they threw it away until they realized that I was fighting back so they had to start afresh] sent it to a newspaper which you can't do without the affidavit of service which requires my signature and personal appearance at the notary. Then they pretended that they DID get me my DBA but they did not because I got it myself!
And then after I said I didn't get my EIN, they also tried to do the same by sending me a bogus document to sign SS4 to send to the IRS for m8 EIN. I'm sure they did that because they tried to get the ein for me and found out that I already got it-- the IRS gives one EIN per person, just like a social security number. What they do and would have done with that form would have been to then send me another bill for the einsaying the money I paid for the EIN [which is free] is for their services, that this money they're asking for now is for the IRS! NOT TRUE. That form is to request a copy of the ein you already got yourself and then they'll send it to you saying that they got it for you!
I read complaints from two people on their BBB page that they charged $400 for the EIN and then they charged another $900 allegedly from the IRS to get the ein which you can get for yourself for free.
It took me 15 mins or less to file for a DBA. I got my EIN in minutes. Also filed for seller's permit. The total it cost to get your DBA in California is $26 and two dollars for the form if you do it online EIN and Seller's permit are free!
