ELDERLY SCAMMED BY TAX MAN-cyber-begging for help.
Thank you for visiting our Web Site. We are cyber-begging for help because we have been scammed. We beg, beg, beg for your help.
In August 2000, our tax man called and asked us if we wanted to invest some money for a short time with a high interest rate. Naturally, we said we would. So we gave him $30,000 to be used for a real estate deal.
The next month, he said some more money was needed to complete the deal he was working with. So we gave him another $10,000. The deal he was to be completed in December, at which time we were to get our money back plus $5,000.
We received our monthly interest on schedule. Then in december we were asked if we would extend the deal until the end of March, coninuing to receive our monthly interest. We siad that would be fine. Then on March 2, 2001, he called and said they needed $27,000 for attorney fees to complete the deal, which we also gave him. We were to get everything back by the end of March. A few days later he gave me a check for $27,500 to cash the next day. The next day he called and said the funds were not available and to wait a couple of days and he would call us when the funds were available.
Well, after that we just got the run around. We called every other day or so to check if the funds were available, with the same answer of no. He kept telling us his partner was working on it. We continued to receive our monthly interest for a couple more months, then that stopped also.
We would check with the bank frequently, to no avail. This went on until the beginning of November, 2001, when his office phone was disconnected. We went to his office and peeked through the mail slot in the door and found the office empty. We tried calling his home number and were repeatedly told that he was out-of-town. Then we started calling his partner and got the same run-around. Telling us the money was supposed to be wired to his account on certain days, but it never showed up. We call his cell phone every day and leave a message - never getting a return call. Now, he's left town and we don't know where he is. We did find out that in November our tax man was sent to jail.
We were planning on retiring the end of 2003 and buying an RV and do some traveling, using the money they took from us. Well, I didn't get to retire because I got laid-off in December of 2001. Now we don't have the money to purchase our RV and don't have a job to try to save up for one, therefore we are not able to travel. We are absolutely devastated!
We heard about that one woman who had so much credit card debt and went on-line to ask others to help her get out of debt, so we decided to give it a try, hoping someone would be willing to help us in whatever way thet could.
We thank you for whatever you can do for us, it will be greatly appreciated.
