    Scammed by Entitlements Agency

    Scammed by Entitlements Agency 16th Jul 12 at 12:11 PM
    My wife was overpaying tax all last year so, we looked for the official tax website to find out how to get a refund. Like !!!!!!! idiots we thought was the official site to get the tax refunds so, filled out the form to get the refund pack. Filled out the form and waited for them to get back to us (still thinking it was a refund branch of the official HM Revenue & Customs).

    We received a letter from HM Revenue & Customs saying she was untitled to a refund and repayment would be made to The Entitlements Agency which we still thought was a part of the HM Revenue & Customs.

    Today we get a letter and cheque minus;
    17% processing fees +VAT.

    We were thinking why would the HM Revenue & Customs be charging fees when we realised that this is not all we thought it to be. You might think we were stupid but, there was no mention of any type of fees that would have to be paid and they made it look like they were from HM Revenue & Customs.

    Do we have any chance of getting this reversed or at least getting the fees reduced, we haven't put the cheque in the bank yet?

    I don't understand how this is allowed to happen, my wife worked very very hard for the money and we are in a situation where we really need it!

    Any advice would be great. BTW; they didn't send the P60 back with the cheque, should we be worried?

    I was scammed by the tax rebate or repayment agency (they use both names) on my tax refund . I was due 1673, they sent me back 871 pounds, they took 40% excluding vat which amounrs to 806 pounds. The guys name is david brennan a young cocky financier who hasnt filled any earnings for his company since its start in 2014. HMRC hasnt done anything to help with this sad and very detrimental situation (i am jobless and was relying on the money to pay my rent) , in fact despite many complaints HMRC protected him and his interests. He has since removed from his website the sentence "claim your taxe refund from HMRC" leading me to think it was a govrnemental agency !!!! I even emailed consumer rights who explained they can not represent me since i asked for the cancelation of the contract before the end of one month (you are allowed 90 days to cancel a service contract if unhappy with how they are dealing with your requests) . I EVEN FILLED AN ONLINE POLICE REPORT FOR FRAUD. Not only mr david brennan didnt explain such high commission, he even showed off that he put the date wrong wrong on the contract (19th april instead of august) and he is not backing off nor recognising it was abuse of my good faith. The mail can track when i received their claim form and when it was sent back. But guess what mr david brennan is now 800 richer in a country that allows him to mislead people enrish himself and not pay his taxes and GET AWAY WITH IT
