I met Anthony Tuan Nguyen at a fundraiser for local politician Van Tran. Mr. Nguyen is a great talker who convinced me that he should take care of my accounting needs. After a few meeting at his office I decided that he should do the yearly taxes for myself and my family. What a huge mistake!

Here's a partiality list of what went wrong.

-He told me that he was an experienced tax lawyer as well as a CPA. This was a LIE. Mr. Nguyen has never practiced any type of law, he does have a law degree but lies about experience.

-He failed to identify the most basic deduction that we were entitled to. I could have done a better job using turbo tax!

-He was late filing my taxes, when I asked him about this he told me that he filed an extension and that I would not be getting any penalties. HE LIED!!! No extension was ever filed and I got penalties!

-I gave Mr. Nguyen the receipts for the year in a very organized fashion, but when I retrieved them half were missing and piled in to an old copy paper box that fell apart as soon as I got it to my car.

-Getting Mr. Nguyen on the phone is like pulling teeth. He never answers once he has your business.

Please do not give this man any business, trust me he has no idea what he's doing.

FRAUDULENT COMPLAINT-I CHALLENGE THIS PERSON TO COME FORWARD

AUTHOR: Tuan Anthony Nguyen - (United States of America)

Dear clients, friends, colleagues:



    For the past many months someone posing as one of my clients posted fabricated complaints about me on the internet.  



THE COMPLAINT

    The facts, the fees, the works he described were all fabricated, false, and dishonest.  I am a one person firm.  I know who my clients are.  No one fits the client he described.  He is a phony and a fraud.

    These complaints appear to be written by an angry person holding a grudge against me and/or is somehow related to one of the parties in my investment fraud lawsuit.   

    I challenge this person to come

forward and meet me at the California Board of Accountancy with a tax return I signed.  I challenge this person to meet me at the State Bar of California with a will and trust I prepared or a case I represented.

    So far he has been hiding like a rat.  He is a dishonest and hateful person.

    He distorted the facts to retaliate against me.  He claimed to have met me at a fund-raising and became my client.  I invited two persons to one fund-raising and I know exactly who they were.  I never got any clients from any fund-raising. These accusations were baseless, false, hateful and dishonest.



THE LAWSUITS

    He distorted the truth to claim I was involved in more than 50 lawsuits because my Vietnamese name is Tuan Nguyen.  Tuan Nguyen is name for tens of millions of Vietnamese.

    If this person is Vietnamese, he has lost his Vietnamese heritage.  He is a disgrace to his family, his parents, his ancestors and his Vietnamese race. 

    In October 2008, I filed a lawsuit against Mitch Ngo, Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik, and Yuri Vanetik for

investment stock fraud involving my $200,000 investment in oil fields in Kazakhstan. (30-2008-00113558-CU-BC-CJC).  These people then filed lawsuits against me for defamation, slander and libel.

    On July 23, 2010 Hiep Trinh sued Tuan Nguyen for more than $300,000 (30-2010-00392585-CU-FR-CJC).  He dismissed with prejudice his case in less than two months on September 17, 2010.

    On January 9, 2009 Yuri Vanetik sued Tuan Nguyen (30-2009-00117093-CU-DF-CJC).  He dismissed with prejudice his case in less than five months on May 28, 2009.

    On April 30, 2010 NRG Resources, Inc. sued Tuan Nguyen (30-2010-00368722-CU-BT-CJC) for $5,000,000.00.  I won most of the causes of actions.  It appealed to the California Appellate Court

and then dismissed with prejudice the appellate case and the Superior Court case on July 18, 2011.

    There are close to 50 Vietnamese investors in Turan Petroleum, Inc. and NRG Resources, Inc.  

    At one time there were 43 shareholders/investors suing these people for fraud and other causes for their investment in Turan Petroleum and/or NRG Resources, Inc. 

    Twenty of these investors/plaintiffs are Vietnamese.  

    And Hiep Trinh, Yuri Vanetik and NRG Resources, Inc. alleged that I defamed them in Vietnamese newspapers and the Orange County Register.



THE PICTURE (see original picture below)

    Hiep Trinh through his attorney, John Dolkart, Jr. posted a paid-for press release about his lawsuit against me, with my picture that was cut off from a group picture with him (Hiep Trinh), Yuri Vanetik taken August 10, 2006.  This same picture again appears in other internet complaints against me.  Only the people in the picture would have access to this picture.

    In August 2006, Yuri Vanetik, a Republican National Committee Eagle Club member, and Hiep Trinh asked me to go to an Eagle Club members event at President Bushs ranch in Crawford, Texas.  For a politically lowly person like me I was impressed with Yuri Vanetiks connections and Hiep Trinhs

connections.  I was impressed with the many powerful people they know.  I was impressed with their aspirations for powerful political appointments and positions such as ambassadors and cabinet members. 

    Because of them, I had my picture taken with the president for the first time.  This was also the first time I heard of the RNC Eagle Club.

    As a Vietnamese in the Little Saigon area, I support any Vietnamese candidates for offices.  I do not know any congressman.  I have no aspirations for political positions.  

    I do fairly well for myself with my own labor both financially and professionally.  I do not need to impress anybody with any alleged political ties.

    Read all the complaints thoroughly.  Google all the parties involved.  Check all the lawsuits

regarding all the parties involved at the court website (www.occourts.org). Check www.huffingtonpost.com and www.campaignmoney.com for all parties involved.  Please judge for yourself.

Comments to an Anonymous Complaint

AUTHOR: Tuan Anthony Nguyen - (United States of America)

This complaint appears to be written by the same person(s) who also posted another complaint on scaminformer.  Here is the complaint and comments.

  Anthony Tuan Nguyen JD CPA Tuan Nguyen aka Anthony Nguyen

  aka Tony Nguyen Horrible Lawyer Zero Knowledge on Estate Planning Fraudster

  Internet 

  

  18th of Jun, 2011 by User335250

  

  I was referred to Tuan Anthony Nguyen aka Tony Nguyen for an estate planning matter. I should have known better. A lawyer who puts Esq. after his name and on his Ferrari license plate (which was paid for by his wife's family) is trouble. Anthony T Nguyen went to a third tier unaccredited law school and graduated about 5 or 6 years ago. But that does not matter since he never really practiced. I hope he is a better accountant than lawyer. Nguyen did absolutely no analysis of our estate plan. He recommended   family limited partnerships and irrevocable insurance trusts, but his work product according to real attorneys that I had review his documents were the kind of stuff you get from Nolo press or legal zoom - horrible boilerplates.  Nguyen could not admit that he did not know what he was doing, and instead of   refunding the $5,000, he threatened to sue me and report me to the IRS and FBI, claiming that I had approached him to find ways to avoid taxes.  Obviously, these were lies. This guy has no shame. When my lawyers looked him up, it was clear that he is a seriel litigant. Tuan Nguyen has been in at least 50 lawsuits in Orange County alone. He has also been written up in papers and it is not pretty. This guy is a bully and a fraudster in my view.  If you come across him and are considering any business with this guy, do some thorough background, and you will find what I have uncovered. He also claims to be tied to congressmen and state politicians. Big deal - even if it is true.

The tone of this letter appears to come from someone who has a grudge against Mr. Nguyen, or was in a legal battle with him. I guess if I search all the lawsuits Mr. Nguyen was involved, and your name and your company's name repeatedly came up as one of the parties in the lawsuits, then you must be the guy writing this message. If you were dissatisfied with his services, go to the state bar or sue him for malpractice to recover your $5, 000. That was a lot of money. Many lawyers will recover that for 20% of that.



If you know him and his family that well and if you know he went to a third/fourth tier law school, why went to him. I know people who went to top tier/ivy league law school and try so many times and are unable to pass the California bar. Kudo to someone who went to a low tier law school and passed the bar exam!



Beware! Tuan Nguyen is a very common Vietnamese names!

This complaint is interesting!



As suggested by the writers of this post, I went to the Orange County court website (occourts.org) and the internet to check and here are the findings:



I looked for Mr. Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA and Esq. because there are so many Tuan Nguyen, Tony Nguyen and Anthony Nguyen (a common Vietnamese name) there was ONE lawsuit filed by Mr. Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq. against Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik, Yuri Vanetik and Mitch Ngo for some sort of investment stock fraud (30-2008-00113558-CU-BC-CJC).



There were three lawsuits filed against Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq., by Hiep Trinh (30-2010-00392585-CU-FR-CJC); by Yuri Vanetik (30-2009-00117093-CU-DF-CJC); by NRG Resources, Inc. (owned by Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik, Yuri Vanetik and others) (30-2010-00368722-CU-BT-CJC). These lawsuits were connected to the lawsuit filed by Mr. Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq. against these individuals. These lawsuits appear to be retaliatory, bullying and intimidating lawsuits against Mr. Nguyen.



Far from being a serial litigant, there was only ONE lawsuit filed by Mr. Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq. On the contrary, there are so many lawsuits connected to Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik and Yuri Vanetik. Who is the real serial litigant?



Interestingly, the State of California also sued Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik, Mitch Ngo, NRG Resources, Inc. and Turan Petroleum, Inc. for some sort of investment stock fraud connected to these cases. (30-2010-00389990-CU-SL-CJC). The Court even issued an injunction order against these people for violating California securities laws.



Talking about having ties to or being a friend of politicians, Mr. Nguyen is no where a friend of politicians as compared to Hiep Trinh, Yuri Vanetik and Tony Vanetik. A search of www.huffingtonpost.com and www.campaignmoney.com reveals hundreds of thousands of dollars donated by Hiep Trinh, Yuri Vanetik and Tony Vanetik to politicians. Their pictures with politicians are all over the places.

These days, there is no way to know if an internet complaint is genuine or just a place for people to express their personal vendetta.



What a shame!

I agree with the comments by Conrad. The author of this complaint must have a personal grudge against Mr. Nguyen or is in a lawsuit with Mr. Nguyen.



If you are not satisfied with your attorneys services, you dont write anonymously on the internet about his car license plate; his car was paid by his wife; he went to a fourth tier law school or he was tied to politicians. You write to the State Bar. This is so cheap and petty. The complaint seems so low.

You sue him to refund your fees. People hate attorneys when they dont do a good job and charge you too much.



Attorneys are ethically prohibited from threatening to report clients to the IRS or FBI. The State Bar will discipline him. The author of the complaint claimed that his attorney threatened to sue him; sue him for what? If his attorney did not do a good job, what can he sue for? More money? This allegation seems so untrue.



The author of the complaint said his attorney threatened to report his tax avoidance to the IRS and the FBI. First of all, you dont report tax avoidance to the FBI. They dont care. That is not the FBIs job. The FBI will investigate investment stock fraud, false promises to take companies public, IPO, Ponzi scheme or stuffs like that. They dont do taxes.



The author of this complaint deliberately and dishonestly misled the readers by alleging that Tuan Nguyen was a serial litigant involving in 50 lawsuits. Tuan Nguyen is a very common Vietnamese name. A check of the courts website (occourts) reveals that these Tuan Nguyens come from different professions, different cities, different ages and different backgrounds. The author dishonors the Vietnamese language by failing to understand that Tuan Nguyen is like John Smith in English. If the author of this complaint is Vietnamese, he really dishonors his parents, his family and his ancestors!



At the suggestion of the author of this complaint, I went out looking for 50 lawsuits that he said, was filed by Mr. Nguyen. So I checked the Orange County courts website for lawsuits filed by Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq., I found only one, but I found three lawsuits filed against Tony Tuan Nguyen, CPA, Esq.. All three lawsuits seem to involve the same parties, Hiep Trinh, Mitch Ngo, Tony Vanetik and Yuri Vanetik.



The author of the complaint said Tuan Nguyen was written up on the net. So I checked. I found two paid press releases, again by Hiep Trinh and NRG Resources regarding their lawsuit against Tuan Nguyen. The names of these people keep coming up. I found one complaint about Tony Nguyens tax services that sounded like it was written by the same author of this complaint. I decided to look up Hiep Trinh. Here what I found.



Hiep Trinh was sued for stealing $10, 000 from a disabled bank customers while working at a bank in Orange county. (Hank S. Rivera v. Hiep T. Trinh, Case No. 04CC02020. Orange County Superior Court),



Hiep Trinh was sued for investing customers funds in a fraud, Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Concord Capital Enterprises and Scott Yoshizuma. This man went to prison. Hiep Trinh was ordered to disgorge $656, 029.97 by the Security and Exchange Commission. He filed for bankcruptcy. (Joseph Aguilar v. Hiep Trinh, Case No. 02CC17493, Orange County Central Justice Center)



Hiep Trinh was banned by the United States Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) from ever associating, working with any financial institutions for his wrongdoings (OTS order No. SF-01-008, September 7, 2001).



Hiep Trinh was banned by NASD (National Association of Securities Dealers) from associating with any NASD (now FINRA) members. It means he cannot take any company public. (NASD Regulation, Inc. No. C02010024, CRD#2458464)
