Effectur — Received money; did not provide agreed to tax resolution services
I hired Effectur for $6, 000 to an handle IRS debt. Once they were paid in full, all work stopped. I should have looked at www.ComplaintsBoard and before I hired them, as I now see that they contain an encyclopedia of fraudulent-type activity by the company and its sleaze-ball president, Kenneth Johnson, who reportedly got the idea for Effectur after he himself got caught defrauding the IRS by not paying federal withholding taxes (you can see this piece of work at: http://tinyurl.com/Effectur-is-a-ripoff )
I am seeking the full scope of potential legal, regulatory, media and viral marketing actions that can be taken to get a refund, protect myself with the IRS since Effectur has done no work for months, help others who have been ripped-off, and let the public know to stay away from these vermin who have taken the opportunity, in this bad economy, to make money off of other peoples' misery.
Share your story here, if you have one, as well as the names of people you have dealt with there, as there is strength in numbers. (Effectur, on the other hand, is just 15 people working the phones in a small office in Greensboro, North Carolina.) If you have been ripped-off, tell your story and fight back!
