STEVEN SEARS ATTORNEY AT TRUMAN,IRVINE18 TRUMAN IRVINE, California United States of America
KNOWLEDGE YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT CPA, ATTORNEY. We came to that CPA Attorney Steven Sears out of Irvine whose office is located at 18 Truman, for a tax advice regarding back taxes and an unfiled returns due to missing records and how to legally minimize my tax burden.
We checked his State bar of california website, it showed how dishonest this man is. However, I thought that Mr. Sears may be a good CPA. So, I asked him for his advice of what to do, Steven Sears first sold me four different companies that I had no idea what these companies are and tricked me to sign an agreement called "Company Services Agreement", and I paid him $17,500 which I later realized that this piece of paper is a contract states "...services of an attorney, cpa and financial advisors are not included..." that means that I did NOT hire his services of an attorney or CPA... my question to him then .. whom did I hire? Norma Hoskins who is his receptionist who is barely knows how to answer the phone.. is that whom I hired and seeked a tax advice from?.In addition, this piece of paper states and forces "Arbitration", meaning all the defrauded clients were forced to go to arbitration which is not public records. So the public will not be able to file a public record lawsuit against him. During the arbitration proceeding, Steven Sears claimed that he nothing to do with this piece of paper and he has nothing to do with the services that I was seeking.
Steven Sears stated that he only charged me $250 for the initial consultation and that the rest of the $17,500 went to a company called "Company Formation Services Inc." which he does not own, controll or having any financial interest in. I seeked his advice. I met with Steven Sears. Steven Sears instructed me to sign this agreement. Steven Sears adviced to purchased four of his shelf companies to minimize my taxes. Steven Sears instructed me to make my check payable to this company, and when it comes to a refund, Oh I DO NOT HAVE his money to begin with therefore, he cannot refund me my money.
