Capella University - Capella Lawsuits - Don't get SCAMMED

Capella was hit with a class action lawsuit alleging the school focuses on growing enrollment, but neglects current students. Capella falsely advertises the time and money it takes for students to get their degrees. https://www.twincities.com/2018/04/23/class-action-lawsuit-alleges-capella-university-lied-about-time-cost-of-advanced-degrees/

Tax Defense Network - SCAM ! CROOKS !

TOTAL SCAM ! DON'T GET ROBBED $4,000+ ! This scam "tax relief companies" merely file the EXACT same IRS Forms - that's it! They don't contact the IRS for you! They don't use tax law/strategy nor conduct legal hearings for you! YOU can do ALL this without wasting more money! Steps YOU can do yourself to attempt resolution with your (IRS) Federal Tax Lien: # 1: Complete/Send IRS Form # 12277; # 2 - Wait for response from IRS; # 3 - Dispute the lien with all three Credit Reporting Agencies; # 4 - Await correspondence. "Under Internal Revenue Code Section 6502, the IRS has 10 years to collect that tax deficiency. Before the end of the 10-year period set forth in the statute the IRS can take the taxpayer to federal court and obtain a judgment" (IRS.GOV). Again, several factors and legalities weigh into one's OIC being granted, so please research and consult further. To "file" your "Offer In Compromise"[OIC], complete/submit IRS Form # 433 for individuals or IRS Form # 433-B for businesses. GOOD LUCK. REASONS TO AVOID TAX RELIEF COMPANIES: 1.] These SCAM ("tax resolution") companies charge ridiculous, HIGH fees - all to just file IRS forms, and they DON'T RESOLVE ANYTHING FOR YOU! If a "tax resolution" company is going to charge you $3,000+ for "representation", you need to have a KNOWLEDGABLE, RELIABLE & TRUSTWORTHY agent/firm who does an up-front analysis of your tax problem and ACTUALLY provide you a FAIR, FINAL & REALISTIC FEE, not keep charging you with ongoing, outrageous fees - which these "tax resolution" companies will do, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CAN FILE THE IRS FORMS ON YOUR OWN; 2.] They have a tendency to keep charging you new fees once you've retained their (POOR, MISGUIDED) "service" - basically putting you in a corner with nowhere else to turn since you've already paid them A LOT OF MONEY; 3.] They give (REALLY!) BAD/UNQUALIFIED advice, and they will advise you to do the WRONG actions; 4.] They give DISHONEST advice and LIE: Their sales pitch is that they indicate that they'll qualify YOU for an IRS "Offer in Compromise" ("OIC") to settle a tax debt when they clearly do not qualify & OICs are RARELY GRANTED by the IRS! (SO WHY PAY TO THIS SCAM?). These companies TV commercials lie & are MISLEADING, SHADY sales pitches; 5.] Their TV ads state misstating urgency and use scare tactics: Tax resolution companies are sales people and telemarketers who harass those with tax liens, and they're notorious for lying and using false, intimidating scare tactics! Tax relief companies will often manipulate your emotions to make the sale. There's no reason to fake urgency, as an honest tax professional will present all options for you without emotion or scare tactics; 6.] High employee turnover: Tax resolution companies are notorious for having high employee turnover. As many of the companies are reliant on "salespeople," employees who can't meet sales quotas are fired, so your case will keep getting handed off from representative-to-representative - all to further complicate your IRS situation and keep charging you MORE; 7.] They “drop the ball”: They lack a track record alleviating, assisting, DOING MERELY ANYTHING for you, as many of these companies are famous for failing to “follow through” with their obligation (false promises!); therefore, YOU are now facing IRS levies, wage garnishment; 8.] They go out-of-business: Running an effective tax resolution business requires a unique blend of great customer service with excellent marketing.

Camping World - Thieves and Liars

I wouldn't even give [ANY!] CAMPING WORLD one star. 1 day after buying my RV here - I am told I need 2 new ACs, so I spent the nite @ a hotel because I travelled 160+ miles to this CW to purchase my (used) RV with only 33,000 miles. Unbelievable - not only did my RV break down (160+ miles from CW where I purchased my RV) - JUST 3 hrs after buying my RV @ the Tallahasse CW location (and spending over $6,000 in repairs, replacing inoperative ACs, paying for a full/detailed inspection, on the day of purchasing my RV here - it "failed" an inspection and required repairs just a few months after buying it, and broke down 2x in a few months. On one occassion trying to leave after a camping trip - being "stuck" (again!), as the jacks wouldn't retract - with this happening JUST 1 month after buying the RV causing more repairs & replacements! Less than 30 minutes of leaving CW, having JUST bought it here.... I complained to the Svc Dept of my problem/my concern not being able to put a DROP (literally) of fuel in my RV - being told, "I am not pumping gas properly!" REALLY? A RV gas tank IS a regular frickin gas tank! Like an ***, I even went to 3 different gas stations trying to put fuel in my newly-purchased RV (again, not even after being off CW's sales lot 10 minutes - unable to put ANY fuel in it!). The gas pumps kept "kicking off" like I was "tapping off" the gas tank, so I assumed the fuel gauge was faulty and the fuel tank was full. NOT! Well, the fuel pump AND the fuel gauge didn't work! Well, I "broke down" (less than 3 hours leaving CW!) because of course - my fuel tank was empty! Leaving me stranded @ midnightght in 30, with my 2 dogs & over 160 miles from CW - where I JUST bought my RV! So, the fuel pump had to be replaced, costing nearly $1,800 - just LESS than 48-hrs after buying my RV here! And, I PAID for an (apparent) "FULL" inspection @ CW, on day of purchase! Well - the wrong roof sealant type was applied by CW. A month after buying my RV here - the stairs didn't work so I had to spend $1,200 on its replacement. Then, 6 months later - the RV breaks down 2x - BOTH TIMES within 48-hrs after a drive from FL to CA, only to find out ALL the spark plugs basically exploded and looked like sparklers because previous owner applied electrical tape to damaged wires! Then, the RV breaks down AGAIN in 110 heat - stuck in the middle of nowhere, in the desert! The next day, RV breaks down AGAIN (on a busy freeway!) as the CAM sensor failed. Again - after my RV "passed" CW's complete, expensive "inspections"! Also, another RV dealer, 6 months after purchasing my RV @ this CW, found my LP tank "failed" inspection and that the LP gauge was faulty. Again - this too was inspected by CW but "passed"! I only found out about this serious problem because I had serious doubts of CW, so I had the LP tank get a 2nd inspection by a different RV dealer! But...what a dumb *** I am to fall for this ***, AND - what vehicle dealer would keep ANY TYPE of vehicle on its lot on an empty gas tank when they know it's gonna be test driven? (again....cause I am a *** I don't doubt them, and worse...TRUST them!). NOTE TO SELF = RED ALERT on ANY sense of shadiness - eventhouth the sales rep is being your "best friend", as they see NOTHING BUT $ signs - being SHADY, a thief AND greedy! BUT again, what does one expect - falling for the cliche "car" salesmen ***! Oh - BTW....speaking of 'trustworthiness" - sales guy (TIM), I hear regurgitating: "I am a retired cop - you can trust me" - recalling this B.S. SALES PITCH - totally trusting a former police officer - "falling" for typical, expected car dealer mentality/disgusting, selfish motive & LIES - just [really] irritated with yet ANOTHER SALES REP. And worse.....I'm retired/TOTALLY, permanently disabled (with a short life expectancy, for a 49 year old, thus my seeking (sought) the RV full-time lifestyle! Why would one EXPECT - any - better from ANY (vehicle) sales person RVs? ESPECIALLY BE AWARE! AND - especially of [ANY] CAMPING WORLD, cause they're TRULY a "world" of their own!
