Wall & Associates — fraud/breach of duties
My spouse entered into an agreement with Wall & Associates for tax representation on March, 5, 2012 at the companies’ Albuquerque NM location through Martin C. Satz. According to Mr. Satz” This is a simple tax case that will take about 6 months”. Mr. Satz assured us that the resolution would be “settled around $1, 000” and I was led to believe I was dealing with an organization in New Mexico. On March 6th and 7th we made an initial payments of $2, 500 via debit card to initiate representation service per agreement. Since then Wall & Associates has cashed checks in the amount of $3, 150.00
The first employee that began to contact me about information that Wall & Associates might need was Erica Mandi out of the Kingsport, Tennessee office. I found out that the office of Wall and associates in Albuquerque is just a rented office space with one employee (MR. Satz) that operates out of Arizona. In April, I know that she filed for State of New Mexico temporary hardship status. In May I was contacted by Erica for any possible additional information to help resolve this matter. In June I sent that information and for two months the employees at Wall & associates in Tennessee couldn’t seem to find it. I have asked every month for the last 6 months for information regarding my account and was assured that “we are working on it”. In December I asked again for information and an employee said” the lady in NM with the state is on Holiday leave”. In January I asked again for information regarding the resolution of claimed taxes owed and was told by an employee at Wall & Associates “ the contact with the State of NM is on extended leave”.
