AccountNow / tax refund

1 2603 Camino Ramon #485San Ramon, CA, United States Review updated:

This company has not rejected our state taxes. they are holding them still after a week. We have sent in all the documents to verify who we are, and still no contact back from anyone, even though they state they will call you within 3 days. They removed my husband from our account and set up another account without our authorization. They do not allow you to call and speak to anyone in the fraud department or risk department. They block you out and steal your money.

    Account Now did this to my family as well. They took, and still have a sizable tax return from last year. They let you set everything up yourself online, but you can't update your address or phone online. When we called to change our address the account got blocked because the customer service rep said I was supposed to be a man. After several call backs, faxes, and jumping through all of their verification hoops, more stringent than any regular bank in the country, they still changed the card number, have kept the money, and won't release it. In the end it was requested several times that they just return the money to the IRS and we would deal with them. No response- nothing.
    Its now been almost a year and nothing. The IRS tried to retrieve the money and the account it was transferred to is closed or blocked. I am starting to wonder if they intend to keep the money and look at this company as a complete scam! Don't use them.

    Almost everyone that I know that has used ACCOUNT NOW( including myself ), has ended up regretting it. They keep peoples money for no apparent reason, and make you do all sorts of repetitive things to try to get them to release your money and then after all of that... they still don't. I would HIGHLY recommend AGAINST anyone using ACCOUNT NOW if they want ANYTHING whatsoever to do with their money anytime soon .

    I have had an account now account for around 4 years, had refunds direct deposited to them for those 4 years, went smoothly. Then this year, BAM out of the blue after getting my "pending deposit" text on my phone for my refund, I go to log in and got the following message: In an ongoing effort to keep our accounts secure, we review all deposit activity. Due to recent tax deposit activity on your account, we have suspended your account and we are not currently allowing any additional deposit activity...
    This is the first time I have had a problem with them, but I am NOT a happy camper !! Once this get straightened out, if ever, I am CANCELLING my account..

    Well all you need is the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number, that's your pin, but only if you haven't changed it already.

    Hi I'm Anthony Hudson, I faxed over documents.Did taxes through ez-tax return sponsered on Accountnow site. I contacted EZ-tax return no help. Nowhere like SBBT the best in getting your refund to you mailed checks and all.
    Im complain. Im planning on just getting rich by lawsuit. Many people post on this Risk Department Fraud. Its more like embezzlement and money laundering being investigated. Direct your theft complaint to the FBI. There is a 98% chance of getting crooks arrested and answers to the victims about our money. They freeze your money and make double money. Faxing documents is a safety procedure that is being used to cover fraud tactics.
    If you just call the FBI and state your complaint. I hate this company. my funds been locked since 06-22-2011. on address issues. I have completed the fax game numerous times. I need my money to keep my lights on and feed my family. Dont worry we the people can just shut account now down. Start filing complaints with the FBI everyday they have your money and you have faxed documents by Federal Goverment Employees. Great credible witnesses. send the same fax to you opointed investigator...jnsjrrd at aol
