I went at the end of January 2018 to see about a tax advance, I was told that I was approved for $4,900 has a cash advance that it would cost around 700 in tax-prep fees, I didn't want to pay the 700 my vehicle was broke down and I could use the $4,900 to pay to get the truck fixed after and I repeat after I filed he said I'd get anywhere between 35 and $4,900 back on the tax advance. So the next day I see a deposit of $500 in my checking account and I call him, he said that it was going to be dispersed into different payments once I was accepted I'll get the bigger portion of it, and then after that he said that's how it's been working with most people but I can't promise you that's what's going to happen......
So I called the issuing Bank and they tell me that all I'm going to get is $500. And I asked why and they said that's all I was approved for, then I proceeded to tell them that the man at the preparation office told me that I was approved for 4900 dollars and she said that that was just a pre-approval that wasn't guaranteed. So what they do is they get you to come in and have your taxes filed for an ungodly amount of money because I could have done them for myself for free and ended up with $700 more, then I stack all the other fees on you like the bank fee and whatnot.
but it's just a scam to get you to come in there and have them do a half-ass job anyways charge you out the *** and then promise you things that they can't even guarantee. Be Leary folks the sad part is these people are trained this way I'm sure which is so uncool if I had any suggestion to you I would tell you to just file your own taxes for free on TurboTax
