From: Thomas Shipley 204 Sedona Ct Raeford NC 28376 540-993-6574 LAST 4 # on card 1082 07/28 CVV 057 To: Chase Customer support - TO DISPUTE CHARGES Subject: OVATION TAX GROUP Hired to resolve TAX debt with IRS REBILLED Transaction Date Post Date Description Category Type REBILL-OVATION Professional 7/7/2023 9/6/2023 TAX GROUP Services Adjustment Contacted OVATION TAX GROUP 7/7/2023 to perform TAX resolution with IRS. Worked with James Gregory to set up initial paperwork and esign documents quickly "To get the ball rolling". OVATION TAX GROUP - CASE # 28706 Spoke with Leslie about my case, and she only said if I receive anything else to forward it to them. July 24th 17 days later I called and was transferred to an accountant who stated, "YOU MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY TO GET RELIEF FROM THIS DEBT, BUT WE CAN GET YOU SETUP ON A PAYMENT PLAN." At this point I called back and informed OVATION TAX GROUP what my accountant told me, and asked CHASE to cancel this payment within the 30-Day window well under 60-Day grace period. I did not trust TAX OVATION GROUP to assist me with my IRS tax situation at this point! I was later told she misinformed me and she was talking in generalities.
Thomas Shipley <[email protected]> Wed, Aug 2, 4:50 PM to James It was also great speaking with you. The first person I spoke with said she would set up a payment plan. The next one said she would call me back after receiving more information from me. Which I sent 5 minutes later. Then Svetlana's was in court, then she is busy right now, and then today she is on the phone. DO NOT BOTHER TO CALL ME I FILLED COMPLAINT WITH CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND THEY RETURNED 5500 TO MY ACCOUNT. I THINK I WILL CALL OPTIMA TAX RELIEF OR ONE OF THE OTHER ONES. THANKS TOM SHIPLEY MSc The most important email comes from Svetlana on August 8th 2023. Svetlana Brontveyn Tue, Aug 8, 6:07 PM to me Hi Thomas, I tried calling you today but could not reach you. you spoke briefly to Albert, our tax preparer. I asked him to call you to explain the deficiencies that need to be amended. At this point, we need to have a payment from you so that we can proceed to amend the returns and deal with the balances. I will leave it up to you to contact me to give me an ok to move forward. thank you, Svetlana I informed them my answer was NO!! OVATION TAX GROUP: Never proceeded to amend the returns and deal with the balances! NO WORK WAS DONE as stated by Svetlana! Based on this and the fact I only received 5 emails and 4 text messages for 5,500.00 this was a total SCAM! I already had my taxes redone and owed and paid 20,000 out of the 40,000 originally sent as a deficit on my account</[email protected]>
