Dennis L. Hampton, CPA, Oklahoma City, acting as trustee, removed $190,127.50 from my trust account. He left me about $2,000.

He laughed and treated me like an idiot. He is part of a plan to eliminate me to keep his stealing quiet.

Formerly, he was a trusted associate of more than 30 years. I am poor and receive SSDI. After almost a year of attempting legitimate, lawful remedies, it is clear consequences for Dennis and recovery for me aren’t possible.

If you deal with Dennis, you too will soon be penniless and in prison, or worse.

Update: License revocation is permanent

AUTHOR: - ()

 A year after Dennis Hampton's license was permanently revoked, he was indicted July 8, 2015. The charge is "other white collar crime-wire fraud." He was arrested and bonded out of jail. His trial was continued until November 3, 2015. In lieu of a change of plan, he will finally go before a judge on that day. The bulk of the money will have been gone for almost three years by then. Within the last month, the FBI agent told me Dennis has reopened his business and put out his sign. It represents that he is a CPA and is open for business. I haven't seen it. This is what the federal agent told me. He said he talked to the state accountancy board. They assured him Dennis is under revocation and will never be a CPA in Oklahoma. They said what he did with the trust is the worst act of malpractice committed by a CPA the board has seen. Dennis does not hold a valid, effective CPA certificate. Any other representation is factually inaccurate and will always be factually inaccurate.

Fined and certificate revoked

AUTHOR: AccountingFailure - ()

In the last two weeks, the state accountancy board permanently revoked Dennis Hampton's CPA certificate He was fined $25,000.00 plus costs, a little over $32,000.00 total.

It is appropriate despite not helping me recover the money he stole. The board hasn't posted the document. You can see it here: http://trust-accounting-failure.blogspot.com/2014/07/meet-man-of-steal.html.

Yes and yes

AUTHOR: AccountingError - ()

The state accountancy board has done an investigation. All they can do is pull his certificate, and that doesn't happen until he's passed his one year annivesary in prison. Pretty stringent rules, huh?

I filed a civil lawsuit. To move it forward, I have to tell the court what he did with the money. That requires a forensic audit and analysis. Lawyers want $30,000-plus that the trust doesn't have because he took all the money. So, I have to rely on public resources, which makes it slow.

Law enforcement is aware of this trouble. Thy want the forensic audit also, and I can't provide it. Whether or not he'll actually be charged with a crime remains to be seen. It doesn't look good. There are statutes of limitation for various possible causes, of course, and the clock is ticking. Apparently, stealing large sums of money from people who are dirt poor is perfectly legal in Oklahoma. But, if a guy takes $200 from a convenience store, the police pick him up in minutes, although they don't know what he looks like or his name. What a mess.
