Ideal Tax Services — Fraud and scam
I needed to have past taxes filed. I found Joe Zuniga with Ideal Tax Service (it even sounds cheesy now). Joe gave me all of these warnings of how the IRS was going to get me in trouble and don't trust them and he would handle everything. Joe then asked me for $2500 upfront. I really feel stupid writing this.
I contacted the IRS and handled it myself with an IRS agent that was very helpful - not at all how Joe Zuniga described. The IRS agent told me that I had been taken advantage of. When I told Mr. Zuniga that I had taken care of it. He made up a bunch of lame excuses of why he couldn't return my money right away.
Then he would never return phone calls or would hide like a coward when I should up at his office. He is a sleaze ball, don't fall for his scam like I did. He doesn't have a pot to piss in and spends the money as soon as you pay him. I have heard he has gambling and drug problems. He sounds convincing, don't fall for it.
