Preferred Tax Relief — False Advertising
This began in March 2008. I called PTR because they advertised that they can reduce your tax debt. I first talked to a Kevin Logan, he stated that they work with the IRS and can resolve the issue, for a payment of $3500 to get the ball rolling. After I sent in the money (which was the last of my savings) I next was turned over to a Dave Beccerril who did absoulutely nothing. When I complained I was then given to a Patricia Lopez who came up with an OFFER IN COMPROMISE where I would owe $9000 out of $20, 000 which sounded good, however I would have to pay $1500 up front plus IRS fee of $150 then $1875 /mo for four months. I explained th them that I am already paying $350/ mo and that I am having trouble paying that and asked them is there any other way this can be paid? Never heard from them again, so I filer a complaint with the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. A week later I received a call from this guy who said his name was Dillion that he is an attorney and represents PTR. He wanted to worked this out, he also wanted me to withdraw the complaint, which I sent BBB a statement saying I was contacted and they were working on it.
My first mistake was falling for their line and paying them $3500, the second was believing that they were actually going to help me. I believe that I should get a refund because they did not do what their Ads say, so I consider it fraud. PTR ( Preferred Tax Relief ) is the name of the company and anybody who runs into them stay away, don't be a sap like me and fall for it.
