Preferred Tax Relief / Unauthorized Drafting of Funds
The manager of BayBreeze Seafood Restaurant of Henderonville, NC called Preferred Tax Relief to inquire on their services. Without authorization or any paperwork provided and thus signed, Preferred Tax Relief drafted $8500.00 from the account of BayBreeze Seafood Restaurant. This draft was not authorized nor did the manager ever indicate that PTR would be hired for their services. Instead, he asked they send information and necessary documents and that once the owners reviewed them, a decision could be made. When the funds were discovered to have been missing from the restaurant account, Preferred Tax Relief was contacted and asked to return the money. They have refused. After a police report was filed they offered $5000.00 and claimed to require the remaining $3500.00 as a minimum fee to cover their expenses. It is unclear what these expenses are since no services have been provided by Preferred Tax Relief to BayBreeze Seafood Restaurant. In fact, no paperwork or contract was even sent until after the manager of the restaurant called to ask for his money to be returned.
