DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH QUANTUM FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS.
This company will give you a quote for you to pay upfront. They will tell you this is your flat fee to solve your problem. They will promise to get you a low monthly payment with the IRS, and then... just 2 weeks before they are to serve as your savior, they will turn on you and make you afraid of the IRS. They will tell you how hard it will be for them to go forward with the material you have provided...but if you will send them a few more thousand dollars, they can get the job done. This just happened to me...and I have been in touch with others who have experienced the same problem just this month. So I will post this complaint everyday. I am asking for my $1800 back, and maybe we will get enough enough people to move forward with a class action.

    I too have been scammed by Quantum Financial and have posted a complaint on /link removed/ and filed a complaint with the BBB. They scammed us while my husband was battling cancer for the 3rd time, and was not expected to live. They said they could help with back taxes but all they did for the money we paid them was to set us up with a payment plan with the IRS, something we easily could have done ourselves.
    DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE! They are cruel and heartless.

    This group specializes in scams. They called our house several times and suggested they needed to talk to me about my "federal taxes". The IRS to my knowledge, does not hire collection agencies. I called them out of annoyance and spoke to an assistant, who had the nerve to act put out when I was rude. She then proceeded to tell me that I need to "pay my taxes" and that Antonio was calling for a reason. Total scare tactics and blatent lies. I have never not paid my taxes in my life. My husband (an attorney) called and not so nicely suggested they take us off their call list.

    Stay away from this group. Bad news all the way around.

    IRS Suspends Tax Practitioner for Failing To Provide Service Related to Offers in Compromise

    WASHINGTON — An enrolled agent was suspended from practice before the Internal Revenue Service by the Office of Professional Responsibility on April 6 for not performing services related to offers in compromise (OIC) paid for by taxpayers.

    Enrolled Agent Richard Hargus worked in California for two separate, now defunct companies that specialized in tax resolution services, which included submitting OICs to the IRS.

    Multiple taxpayers paid the companies for Hargus to resolve their income tax liabilities through the OIC program. In many instances, the taxpayers either did not receive the services for which they paid or received very little assistance with resolving their tax issues.

    An offer in compromise is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Absent special circumstances, if a taxpayer has the ability to fully pay the tax liability in a lump sum or through installment agreement payments, an offer in compromise generally will not be accepted.

    Tax practitioners are subject to the regulations issued under Treasury Department Circular 230. Specifically Circular 230 provides that a practitioner must exercise due diligence in preparing or assisting in the preparation of, approving, and filing of tax returns, documents, affidavits, and other papers relating to Internal Revenue Service matters.

    Following an investigation by the IRS, Hargus admitted a lack of due diligence in these taxpayers’ situations. The IRS suspended Hargus from practice for a period of time lasting at least 18 months.

    The IRS is taking a closer look at tax resolution companies, and is also litigating known OIC abuses to ensure that tax professionals fulfill their legal and ethical obligations to their clients in dealing with IRS tax matters.

    I have worked for several of these companies over the past ten years and have the inside scoop on all the major tax resolution companies in Colorado.

    For the 411 on these companies: http://taxresolutionincolorado.blogspot.com/2010/05/blowing-whistle-on-colorado-tax.html

    If you need any additional information on these companies I'd be more than happy to tell you the truth. My email is tax.truth@yahoo.com

    They have now moved on to doing home mortgage modifications, or at least advocating on the side of the borrowers in their attempts. Well guess what, same crooks, new suit new subsidiary name. I should know I worked there for a little under three weeks. The company is( and there maybe more dummy names operating simultaneously) Homegroup llc, out of Grandville, Mi. The new scam is to enroll people into paying them for constructing HAMP paperwork and then charge them "less than 1500" for the privilege. Same client passing, same dereliction of duty as company SOP. And of course, the same over the top boast offers followed by a lack of results. So you'll understand most of the employees do not know each other past work because it's a VIRTUAL COMPANY. That's right no physical address- the company may also be linked to a closed company NC Home Solutions, another virtual company. The reason that I believe that they may be related- and also the reason that I know Quantum is related to Homegroup-- both of the two managers that I met, each has a connection to one or the other. One manager actually has Quantum listed as her employer on one of social media sites. The other lives in close proximity to the old mailbox address for NC Home Solutions. The crazy thing is both prefer to communicate- with their own underlings, through Skype and both skype numbers show, NC. So you may ask, why outside of anger, would an ex- employee help to keep them linked to their long background of treachery? Well I'm the kind of person that does customer service strictly for the sake of helping people. I mean, I like the paycheck as well, of course; but at the end of the day, if I feel like i've helped someone out, I get a big ole' woody I guess. Either way, I didn't stay for long, once I went through a few weeks of the daily lies, and realized exactly what was going on, I resigned. I also reported them to a host of governmental agencies that govern both federal guidelines for some of modifications that they were selling, and any state agency that I could find specializing in the appropriate fields. As things develop- I will repost just didn't want to give to many details before things start stirring- meanwhile stay away from these people no matter what they change their company name too-- they are a bunch of crooks.
