Ex-CPA Anton Ewing visits familiar grounds: court

He admits in his suit that he is "no angel himself."

Though the Anton Ewing website states that services include "bookkeeping" and "tax preparation," it is made clear that he doesn't do accounting

On August 31, 2013, Anton Ewing lost his CPA license. According to Patti Bowers, executive officer for the California Board of Accountancy, Ewing was disciplined because he had pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, and in an unrelated case, had been sentenced to two years in prison for stalking.

The racketeering conviction was for his role in a highly publicized mortgage fraud ring. The stalking conviction involved a dispute in which Ewing admitted that he "repeatedly contacted and harassed [the] victim in an attempt to collect a debt with intent to place [the] person in fear." Ewing appealed the stalking charge on the ground that he was exercising free speech. He lost.

Now Ewing is taking to the court against telemarketers. On August 19 in federal court, he filed a suit against 29 Prime Inc., a Nevada corporation based in Orange County, along with two individuals and several other enterprises. He is charging them with violations of California's Invasion of Privacy Act, robo spam calling, trespass, and unfair business practice.

There is another charge: racketeering. "Defendant 29 Prime is clearly a racketeering enterprise and needs to be enjoined by this Honorable Court," says the suit, which complains of solicitation calls to his cell phone, among other sins. Ewing is representing himself in the suit.

Ewing states in the suit that he "is no angel himself but fortunately California and federal laws apply to everyone equally." I called him for clarification on some items, and after asking me why I was interested in the matter, he hung up.

Ewing's website states services that include "bookkeeping" and "tax preparation" but not accounting. Though his website depicts a high-rise building on a "Contact Us" tab, his office is located at 3077-B Clairemont Drive, suite 372.

AlexClarke: The mortgage fraud ring was an interesting case. It was the first time that prosecutors used the racketeering charge to punish those perpetrating such crimes. The concept of the racketeering prosecution was originated to nab Mafiosi. But it has been extended to other kinds of scam -- wisely, I think. Best, Don Bauder

http://www.yelp.com/biz/29-prime-irvine

243 yelp reviews with 1 start overall rating for 29 Prime and Bauder thinks these guys are angels. Wow, serious flaw in research skills for a reporter with over 30 years of experience. Makes you think Bauder got something else wrong.

http://www.bbb.org/sdoc/business-reviews/search-engine-optimization-services/29-prime-in-irvine-ca-1006234/

An F rating with BBB for 29 Prime with 151 complaints. Geez! Bauder, who are you really reporting on that it news worthy.

Bauder forgot to mention that the case with the all-black violent-street-gang happened in 2006, nearly a decade ago. That is what the court records actually show. I read them. Apparently Bauder did not. Hard to believe that one white guys was part of a crime involving 23 black gang members. The court records show that the blacks got paid nearly $100,000,000 dollars and not one penny went to the white guy the Bauder is trying to disparage here. Wow, great reporting and research. I also read in the court files where the white guy's signature was forged. Maybe that is why the US Attorney and the Court approved a "minimal roll" designation in the case for him. I looked up what "miminal roll" means and it says that you have to not know anyone else in the group. That's pretty amazing. Forged signatures, did not know anyone else and did not get paid a dime. Wow, sounds like Bauder is on to something here.

29 Prime also has 772 FCC compaints. Googling them shows a class action case the looks and read exactly like the one that Bauder is reporting on here. Guess they have a pattern of engaging in bad telemarketing and threats. The case is filed in Oakland district court as C 14-00550 EDL. Bauder forgot to do even the very basic research.

The CPA Board actually shows a voluntary surrender, not a revocation. Get your facts straight Bauder.

I also read that the only other white person in the entire case, some escrow officer lady, actualy went to trial and was found innocent. LOL... imagine that.

Methinks Bauder doth protest too much... maybe Bauder has an axe to grind.

I can't imagine that Don Bauder got permission to use/steal the picture he pilfered from the web page. The terms of use say that it is illegal to copy anything from it. Stealing someone's copyright is a crime. I guess Bauder is the real criminal here.

"BauderIsDishonest" is ANTON EWING, of course.

ANTON EWING claims on his websites and other online listings (of which there are many -- this guy really likes himself), to have a number of licenses. I did some research...

Licensed CPA in CA, NM, AZ: CA , SURRENDERED, as a result of Federal racketeering conviction; NM, EXPIRED; AZ, EXPIRED. IRS Enrolled Agent: NOT A REGISTERED AGENT [IRS]. Licensed Real Estate Broker: CA, REVOKED , as a result of Federal racketeering conviction and stalking; NV, NO RECORD; NM, NO RECORD. Certified Financial Planner: NOT CERTIFIED [CFP Board]; NO RECORD [Investment Advisor Public Disclosure (SEC), FINRA]. Series 7 Registered Representative, Series 24 General Securities Principal, Series 66 Registered Investment Advisor and other SEC licenses: NO RECORD [Investment Advisor Public Disclosure (SEC), FINRA]. Life and Health Insurance Broker: CA Dept Ins., NO RECORD; AZ Dept. Ins., NO RECORD; NV, Dept. Ins., NO RECORD. JD: Went to Law school, but NOT LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW IN ANY STATE. [He argues that putting JD after his name is the same as putting Ph.D. after his name, except that a Ph.D. isn’t trying to fool anybody into thinking they’re a lawyer.]

Since nobody is going to hire this guy once they find out his background - and whose “office” is a rented mailbox at a UPS store - ANTON EWING'S primary source of income seems to be his “Do Not Call” scams, and his many lawsuits against anybody who crosses his path. His modus operandi seems to be to try to extort money from people for some alleged violation of his “rights,” then when his victim doesn’t pay up, he sues them. In the meantime, he threatens, intimidates, stalks, and harasses them. Since he got out of prison, he’s filed about 8 lawsuits in SD Superior Court (one lawsuit per month in the past 3 months), and about 5 lawsuits in Federal Court.

ANTON EWING also uses his lawsuits to issue subpoenas to find out the personal information of people who criticize him. No doubt he’ll do the same subpoena scam to find out who wrote this post.

An interesting fact about ANTON EWING’S lawsuits is that he files for a Fee Waiver, which means that he can sue people for free. A Fee Waiver requires that he receives government assistance or has a limited income. I wonder who pays the rent on his fancy condo on Columbia Street? ANTON EWING also has his finger in businesses besides his “bookkeeping” and “tax preparation” business, including a drone company (SD Drone Videos, LLC) and a video company (Video Solutions, LLC). Do you want this guy spying on you with a video drone?

ANTON EWING has been convicted of Federal racketeering, and he’s been convicted of extortion and stalking. ANTON EWING has been brought into court 5 times for Domestic Violence, and 6 times for Restraining Orders against him. It’s just a matter of time before ANTON EWING goes back to jail.

Consider the source when you see criticism of Mr. Bauder’s article.

BTW..."He is a decorated veteran of the Persian Gulf War of the early 90's..." Anton Ewing's website.

"Every one of the military's 3.5 million uniformed troops and reservists in 1991 received a medal after the American victory in the Persian Gulf war, and the 540,000 soldiers who were actually dispatched to the Gulf also received campaign medals from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
