I have the same identical story as most who have express them on TRX Complaint. It is sad that the people at TRX Alliance, has deceived us like this.
The waiting to see what happens next has been very difficult. I really don't know what to do and would like other victims views on this situation.
TRX has scammed us told us that we can add money to their service bureau fee for our pockets and now it seems like they spent it.
Please respond anybody that has been duped by this company.
I wonder if they spent the money on their new building and the upgrade to their telephone system?

I was told the same lies. They have moved - got a new phone system etc and we still do not have our checks. They first tried to tell me that I was due less. They sent me a smaller check and it bounced. Now he is saying another 30 days to get my service bureau fees. They should not be running this office again. I have paid for software with them and will be looking for new software company. I don't want to do business with them anymore. I am very disappointed. what do you think they have done?

It is very frustrating. I have seen complaints from other victim and I have emailed them and talked to them. They have not called me back or emailed me. I really think they have spent our money on their new building,new phone system and going to all the IRS seminars. They are now trying to find investors to pay us.

TRX has not lived up to its promise to distribute the money. The owner has responded to e-mails stating that he will issue the money. He should not be allowed to operate anymore. Many individuals who are victims posted their complaints on complaints now website.

I was laid of from TRX in July, 2010. I knew something was up with the service bureau fees, but didn't find out the details till after I was dismissed. I am absolutely appauled by what is transpiring there. You think you know someone and then BAM!!!! looks like he's running a ponzi scheme. As a sales rep. saling software, I truly believed in what I was selling, which kept me in the top 5 sales for most of time there. now that i have heard that Doug Hughes kept over $1,000.000.00 dollars in svc bureau fees I about passed out. Idid some research and saw tons of postings from ERO's that have yet to receive a dime. There is a lady who already had an attorney willing to pick up the case and represent all effected. her email address is "LORISUE1962@yahoo.com. I also encourage you to visit www.wsmv.com then click on "I-TEAM" and view some of the videos of what the i-team does then you will have know problem submitting via email your complaint. I already have and am going to post this info everywhere that i can to help all the ERO's get what is rightfully theirs and send someone to jail. I apologize to all ERO members for what you are going thru. I am still in shock that I worked for such a cunning, deceitful, dishonest,sneaky,greedy person. Shame on you Doug Hughes!!!!!! This is just wrong...What the hell were you thinking. Did you really think that you could spend your ERO members money and think, "Oh, I'll pay it back it's all good.....NOT

I HAVE BEEN WITH THIS COMPANY FOR THE PAST 3 YRS, ONLY CAUSE THE SOFTWARE WAS CHEAP... THE CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE ALL 3 YRS, THEY HIRE SEASONAL WORKERS AND DO NOT TRAIN THEM PROPERLY. THEY ARE RUDE, LEAVE YOU ON HOLD AND ALSO LIE. LAST YEAR WAS MY WORST OF THEM ALL, DUE TO HAVING MY OFFICE INFORMATION TIED TO SOMEONE ELSE AND I WAS UNABLE TO PRINT CHECKS. BUT TO PUT THE ICING ON THE CAKE AND STEAL THE MONEY THAT WAS OWED TO ME WAS INSANE. DOWN RIGHT DIRTY. THEY STARTED CALLING ME IN MAY ABOUT THE CHECK AND WHEN THEY WAS GONNA SEND IT OUT.. THE AFTER BEING LIED TO FOR 2 MONTHS I STARTED CALLING AND WAS THEN TOLD THAT THEY MAILED IT OUT TO THE WRONG ADDRESS... LIES, LIES, LIES... THEN ANOTHER PERSON TOLD ME THAT THE EMPLOYEES THAT WAS PROCESSING THE CHECKS STOLE THE MONEY AND DOUG WAS IN THE PROCESS OF FILING A SUIT AGAINST THEM TO GET THE MONEY BACK,,, THEY ARE PLACING BLAME ON ANYONE TO TAKE THE LIGHT OFF OF THEM. IF YOU BUSINESS MAN THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT THAT BELONGS TO YOU. WHY WASNT THE SB FEE'S SEPERATED FROM HIS PERSONAL ACCOUNT... BAD BAD BUSINESS.

I can't believe that the IRS-Chase Bank and whoever took out the
fees won't get invovled. I did not have a taping device so I did
not tape our conversations, but I kept every email 5 of them since
July 2010. Each one tells a different lie. From someone stealing it, to it being put into the wrong account, to being investaged to
check in the mail.I can't believe this is happening I thank you for
sharing with us, and I wonder if we will ever get our money. Some
ERO's $30 was taken out others to $60 and probably more. The service was awful and there was a break down, or shut down almost
daily. If anyone knows what we can do share it please. If you report them to Det. Snyder will any thing come of it? Can they do
something. I am 65 and I have been doing taxes for over 20 years and I have never had something like this happen to me.

I talked to Det. Snyder and he told me it was a civil matter and there was nothing they could do.
He referred me to the consumer complaint department in Tennesee. I sent in all the information I had and they sent me letter stating there was nothing they could do. They refer me to a private attorney. Did you receive an email from TRX stating that Doug is talking to investors today and as soon as they find out something they would email us? I am just waiting to find out what is going to happen.

I was told the same thing below is a copy of the email I received
this morning.Another office here in Louisiana said that she would
get her money today through pay pal. but she has not receive it
as of yet.Doug knows that the only way we can fight him is to hire
a lawyer and he knows if we need our check as bad as we do, that we
do not have the money to hire a lawyer and file suit. I too am waiting to here from them from the message below.
"TRX wanted to send you an update on your Service Bureau Fees. As you know, Doug Hughes met with an acquisition attorney on August 24th, and he was told the deal would close within 30 days, which is September 24th. This is where we got the September 24th date. Again, Doug spoke with the investors on Monday, September 13th to make sure the deal was still set to close for September 24th, and Doug was told that it wouldn't be a problem. Doug has a conference call about this on Friday, September 24th and we will update you about your Service Bureau Fees after the meeting is over."

Well guys here is the email I got at 5:50p.m today
Friday Sept. 24th. Just another lie I don't know
what i'm going to do.
"Update on the Rebate Money owed to you. I have been in meetings and conference calls all day today and for the past 4 weeks constantly. I was told on September 24th that we would have everything finalized within 30 days and in turn I relayed the same message to you guys. I am working this on two fronts, one of which is through a group of investors that will also bring TRX Financial a new product for TRX Alliance Members to offer this tax season. Working with the investment group does take time and these groups of investors do understand the urgency of getting every single one of you paid NOW! I tell them how urgent it is every day. The second method is that Kathy and I have been working with the mortgage company to get a loan to make sure everyone gets paid, but everyone knows how the closing dates get changed or underwriting holds you up especially with the current banking industry today.
I will assure you every one will be paid and starting Monday I will be sending out an e-mail advising you the status each day until you have been paid. As I am sure each of you realize with my staff and I we are on the verge of a complete melt down because we have not been able to pay you guys yet, because we all think of you guys as not only TRX Members but members of the TRX Family. I personally want to thank everyone that has been praying for TRX and me to get through this. Please remember be kind to my staff they are not responsible for any of this, it is all on me and if you will allow me I will get you paid very soon."
Sincerely,
Doug Hughes

Thought I would put my comment here because it just seems that it is where it belongs. According to what I was told by one Doug's own employees, everything is being held up because Doug's so called investors have backed out of the deal. And I couldn't believe it, but was told that we who he owes should have charges pressed and have him do a little jail time. There have been several who are having family problems because of him. Some are so behind on bills that they have to deal with credit scores going down and some who are being put out because of no rent and others who have lost their homes because mortgage companies don't want to hear that they will get paid as soon as Doug pays them.

Myself, I begining to think Doug is buying time to see if he can file bankruptcy to get us off his back.

There should be an attorney who would take this case just for a cut.

Have a blessed day!!

There is a email address in one of the comments at the top.
I think it's Lorisue or something like that. I don't know
what we can do I know how everyone is feeling because I am
having some financial problems because of him. If we could
sue and not cost any money then I would probably go along
with something like that.
You are right he is just buying time, for what I don't know
but this should be a crime. I wonder if Chase can help us, they
took the money out for him.
God Bless

I think we should I have been lied to since July about these checks. It wasn't their money to use as they pleased. I like others depended on the lies they told and now are in a financial hole listening to their lies. They should of told the truth not lying to their members for their own gain. I think we should take them to court as a class action lawsuit. I sick of their lies and they are telling their staff to lie.

I have information that Doug Houghes never intended to refund any of the money. It was all a scheme for him to convince everybody to rise the SB Fee because banks like republic were not giving any rebates back after the Tax season. It was a way for him to keep even more of your money. Never intending to refund any of it back. What people should do is contact the Attorney General of Tennesse and the FBI's Economic crimes unit. This is clearly a criminal case and Detective Snyder should take another look at it.

I'm not sure where you got your information but Doug's intention all along is to pay the money to all his members. I know of 50-60 people who have gotten paid thru PayPal and once he gets the rest of the money all TRX members who participated in the service bureau fee bucket will be paid, which is only a couple more hundred people out of TRX's 5,000+ members. The Service Bureau fees have only affected about 8% of TRX's Members. If this was a scheme then TRX would have already shut down, but Doug has been working very hard for months to get the money.
