I have become a victim of fraud as well from this company, staff, procedures and coercions. I have attempted to contact this company but to only get unanswered calls, I have attempted to email this company but never to get responses. I have mailed letters to this company but to get nothing is return for services they had never provded and the theft of my $3300 dollars. I have conducted some research on this company which has changed it's name several times do to this company having been suspended both by the California Secretary of State's Office and the Franchise Tax Board. As of today's date, November 1, 2012 this company (AKA The law offices of Janian and Assocaites, A professional law corporation) are suspended by Franchise Tax Board. I encourage you to ready what I have located which is public information that I had to pay for. But before I release this information, I lost my home to foreclosure do to the illegality of this comany, their deceptions, lies, coercions and failures in provided the services and necessities necessary. This company is a fraudlant organization and needs to be punished by the "Office of the Chief Trial Counsel Intake", The State Bar of California. I have demanded responses to me emails, letters etc. and have received only a quick message from Mr. Armen Janian himself, as I cannot verify this. See below: Dear Mr. XXXXXXI am in receipt of your fax and email accusing me and my Law Firm as being "false, deceptive, misleading and an all out lie", and "a criminal organization". I am reviewing your file and I will be responding to you after I have concluded my review.
In the meantime please send me any proof that you allege I being "false, deceptive, misleading and an all out lie", and
"a criminal organization".
If you are in fact entitled to a refund, arrangements will be made for such purpose. Please be advised, however, that I
intend to fully prosecute any and all individuals, who maliciously, and with impunity, falsely accuse and defame me and my law firm. I will be filing appropriate court actions.
Now please read this:
Mr.Armen, November 1, 2012
You will find the research that I have conducted: I have purchased the information from the Secretary of States Office and have found the corporation numbers you have incorporated under and to find that these have all become suspended.
Date you first incorporated in was August 1, 2000 then suspended for doing business in the State of California on 10/23/2002. The second attempt to do business in California was 10/17/2003 and again suspended for doing business in California on February 1, 2008. The third time you attempted to do business in California was incorporating on January 25, 2008 and again
suspended on January 4, 2010. During these periods you are not authorized to conduct business in California as you will see below.

Armen Janian and Associates, A professional law corporation - Corp# CXXXXXXX- suspended (10/23/2002)In California, both the Secretary of States office and the Franchise Tax Board have the authority to suspend a California corporation. The Secretary of States office can suspend a corporation based upon the failure to file and pay the annual Statement of Information. This statement contains the identity of the officers and directors of the corporation, as well as its agent for service of process. The failure to file a Statement of Information on time may result in a $250.00 late fee.
The Franchise Tax Board has the authority to suspend a corporation based upon the failure to pay the minimum tax of $800.00 a year or the failure to pay any taxes that are owed. In addition, a corporation may be suspended for the failure to file tax returns. Tax returns are required on an annual basis even if the corporation is not doing business.
The impact of a corporation being placed in suspended status is substantial. When a corporation is suspended, it has lost all rights and privileges as a corporation and cannot legally operate. In that regard, technically a suspended corporation is required to close its business and stop all business related activity. Moreover, a suspended corporation cannot sue or defend any action in court.
Furthermore, a suspended corporation that provides a service, or goods, to third parties while suspended may not be able to collect payment for such services or goods since the suspended corporation technically was not permitted to engage in any business transactions.
A California corporation can be placed back in good standing after its has been suspended by being revived or reinstated. Until the corporation corrects its suspended status, the corporation is prohibited from transacting business and any contract executed by a suspended corporation is voidable at the demand of the other party. The only exceptions to the loss of corporate privileges upon suspension are that the corporation may (1) change its name by amendment to its Articles of Incorporation and (2) apply to the Franchise Tax Board for tax exempt status.
Once notification is received of the suspension, it is important to move as quickly as possible to have the corporation revived or reinstated. A corporation that was suspended by the Secretary of State because of the failure to file the required annual Statement of Information can be revived by sending a letter to the Secretary of State along with (1) the delinquent Statement of Information and (2) the payment of the overdue fees and/or penalties imposed. Provided that the corporate name is still available, the Secretary of State will send a Notice of Reviver to the corporation and notify the Franchise Tax Board. If the corporations name was taken by another corporation during the suspension period, then the Secretary of State will advise the corporation that it must change its name by amending its Articles of Incorporation before the corporation can be revived. In the event that the corporation was suspended by the Franchise Tax Board, the suspended corporation may have its corporate privileges reinstated only by filing all delinquent tax returns and statements, paying all applicable taxes, penalties, interest and fees, and filing an application for a Certificate of Revivor with the Franchise Tax Board. Before the Franchise Tax Board issues the Certificate of Revivor, the Secretary of State must again approve the corporate name to insure that another corporation did not take the name during the period of suspension.
In summary, the potential adverse consequences that can flow from the suspension of the California corporation dictate that both the required Statement of Information and the payment of the minimum annual franchise tax and tax return be transmitted on a timely basis. While a corporation can be revived or reinstated following a suspension, the danger exists that the corporations name will be taken by another entity during the time of the suspension. Additionally, the risk of being unable to participate in litigation,as well as the risk of having a contract voided by the other party, greatly outweigh the burden of complying with the requirements of the Secretary of State and the Franchise Tax Board.I DEMAND MY MONEY TO BE REFUNDED
