Before this transaction began, there was many instances in the previous years that I personally witnessed Mr. Owens rip people off, start fraudulent companies, and steal peoples money. He has done time in federal prison and has had many lawsuits filed against him. He still owes my spouse $5000 from previous employment in which he put off indefinitely until she stopped asking.

His previous fraudulent companies include Wireless 65, Mobile Advantage Club, and Pledge for Charity. All corporations in which he scammed people to sign up for an illegitimate cell phone service, while providing for himself financially off the credit of the fraudulently established corporation, until he ultimately bankrupted the company to form another.

In saying this I feel extremely incompetent in trusting this person, however he always portrayed himself as a helpful good guy and a friend, someone whom we had even been on vacations with!

 I was approached by Mr. Owens several months ago about business development services. At the time I was trying to establish a moving company and was struggling acquiring the means to do so. Mr. Owens said he specialized in assisting in the development of corporations and credit building. He claimed that for a price of around $5000, he would provide me with my own corporation with trade lines included, (or functioning lines of credit).

He said it would take around 60 days to establish the credit lines and after that point I would have my own corporation with available credit. As Mr. Owens was someone I had known for a few years prior, I was ignorant enough to trust he would complete this service. He had me pay his wife the funds in cash and she gave me a receipt. He emailed me a contract which stated there was a money back guarantee in the event I didn't receive the service or was not pleased. 

 75 days into waiting for the product, he claimed that “his guy used the wrong tax ID” and it would take a little longer. This did not sound correct to me, so I did some further investigation into the corporation he was selling me. At closer inspection, every single detail he told me about the transaction was fraudulent or just plain fictitious. It was then I asked for a refund and stated that I no longer had an interest in the corporation. At this time, I had not received a single service and nothing was put in my name or transfered to me. In addition to this corporation, he was paid $1,000 for credit restoration services which also never happened.

 His initial response to the request for the refund was that he would reach out to “his guy” monday and obtain the refund. Based on the information we found out on the corporation he was attempting to sell us, there was never a third party involved in this transaction besides Mr. Owens himself, this person providing this “service” was completely fictitious.

On monday, he claimed that he “wouldn't ask for a refund” because it would “damage his relationship” with this fake person. I began to ask Mr. Owens that if this was the case, when could I expect any sort of refund? He would not provide a specific answer and I saw this instance playing out similar to that my spouse experienced where he uses “ill have it soon” or “ill pay you next week” until the person owed money finally gives up, only this time I was aware of what his plan was. 

 I was patient and politely contacted him the following weeks asking for an update on a refund. I offered many solutions in order to get at least something back including accepting a partial payment and the rest when it was convenient for him, yet I was never paid back a penny. It has now been over a month without payment or the promise of one in the near future.

I have expressed to Mr. Owens many times that I was in extreme financial distress and was in desperate need of some sort of payment, but it did not appear Mr. Owens could care less. After attempting to begin legal resource, it has become apparent to me that Mr. Owens was doing everything in his power to scam people in a way where they were not able to prosecute him or get a refund. He stays in the amount of money in which has to remain in small claims, and his wages can not be garnished because he is the corporation owner. 

 I recently found out the means in which Mr. Owens establishes his corporations which he uses to fund all his personal expenses, is he purchases seasoned corporations established for the means of doing this particular scam. He then attaches fraudulent proof of income, websites, and clientele to the corporation to scam the banks into approving the corporation for lines of credit. He then runs an entirely unrelated business off this credit while also funding nice cars, fancy meals and vacations only to bankrupt the company, keep all the clients money, and move on to the next scam. 

Mr. Owens lives very comfortably solely off of ripping people off and running corporations to the ground. PLEASE help us stop this guy!!

The Telecom Company in Vista steals money!
