Worst Client Ever

I had a terrible client I was finally rid of I thought. They were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and always needing a “loan” to save them.

after leaving me because I was not help enough to help borrow their way out of debt they contacted me.

Their new lender promised them a line of credit but the Naucs code was not right in the last return I did. They wanted me to amend and change it. Their current CPA said it would be easy for me. I have dog my heels in and told them I had no obligation to do so. Plus I looked at their website and it looks like my choice of business was correct

Beware of shaky lenders and clients trying to get you to be a party to their lending issues!
