Fredrick James Accounting Tax And Consulting in Clearwater, Florida - I Paid $7500 For Tax Prep, All I Got Were Invoices totalling $9800

I hired Fredrick Fredrick James Accounting Tax & Consulting of Clearwater Fl, to do a few years of Tax returns. They told me the fee would be $7500. And they asked that I pay them upfront. They seem legit, so I paid them, and I started working with them on my 2016 tax return. I'm a single guy, work from home, and have no employees. After filling out a spreadsheet they gave me, they told me that they were ready for me to look at the final draft. But, I was told to call the office, because they needed an additional deposit before we could continue. I was puzzled, because I paid them a huge deposit upfront, and I was under the impression that I had paid in full, but when I called, I was told that they needed another $4500 to continue, and it was going to cost $18,000 more to finish the other returns! I could have went to H&R Block and got everything done for a fraction of what they charge. I told them no way, and I wanted my money back. Fred Daus the owner called me, and he said that I wasn't getting any money back, and they were done with my account. He texted me later saying that I was going to get another invoice for $2300 more. Can you believe it? I got nothing for my $7500 but an invoice, and they expect me to pay $2300 more. I got scammed.

I've heard similar things about them. My friend wasn't happy when she got the bill, they collect money upfront, then they told her that they needed more money to continue. She ended up paying hundreds more than they quoted her
