Anton A. Ewing, J.D - Scammer

Anton A. Ewing, J.D. has been active scammer who has successfully extracted dollars from pockets of innocent people. This guy doesn’t even care about leaving the loose ends which could push him into jail again. He’s a very pathetic approach and his actions contradict his words. For example, he files lawsuits in ‘fee waiver’ category when on the other hand, he claims that he is a successful tax preparer which hundreds of clients. Even while harassing his “preys” for extorting money, he doesn’t care what would happen if he gets a counter case filed against his name. Even after getting convicted in April and November of 2009 and getting a sentence of 2 years, he came out without a inch of care. His wife has already taken him to court for domestic violence and some of the brave businessmen have actually made him succumb to his guilt. This guy needs to get his brain back ASAP.

Harrassing Telemarketers

Anton Ewing was mistakenly called by a telemarketer and once he stated he was on the National DNC Registry, he continued to ask questions of the owner name, business license number, reps name, etc.. He kept saying he was filing a lawsuit against the Company, Owner, Telemarketer, etc... This guy tries to talk fast around some legal stuff. After looking him up I see he has been in a lot of trouble before. Trying to pull this scam on people. It is disgusting that after all he has done to people before that this guy can still file these false claims against people and waste the time of these individuals. It's also a waste of tax payer money

ANTON EWING - TAX PREPARER -SCAM ARTIST

Update by user Sep 30, 2015

Website address is incorrect. It should be antonewing.com. He also has other websites, including antonewingtax.com, antonewingjd.com, antonewing.org, and listings for himself and his tax preparation business on many other websites.

Original review posted by user Sep 30, 2015
Anton Ewing is a fraud and a scammer. He claims on his websites antoneewing.com to be a “bookkeeping and tax preparation firm.” Anton Ewing is a two-time convicted felon, who has spent time in prison for racketeering and for extortion and stalking. He’s been taken to court 5 times for Domestic Violence, and 6 times for Restraining Orders against him. There are at least 2 restraining orders in effect against him at the present time. Ewing runs a “Do Not Call” scam. He tells businesses and individual businesspersons to call him at his “business” phone number, which is also his personal phone number, then when somebody calls, he claims that his phone number is on the “Do Not Call” list, and he threatens to sue them unless they pay him thousands of dollars. If his extortion doesn’t work and they don’t pay up, he sues them. In the meantime, Ewing harasses, threatens, and intimidates with letters, phone calls, emails, text message , and he stalks his victim until they pay up. Since he got out of prison, he’s filed about 22 lawsuits in SD Superior Court (one lawsuit per month in the past 3 months), and about 5 lawsuits in Federal Court. He’s got at least half a dozen lawsuits going right now. Ewing also uses his lawsuits to issue subpoenas to find out the personal information of people who criticize him, and then he victimizes them the same way he does to his victims in his “Do Not Call” scam. When Ewing files his lawsuits, he files for a Fee Waiver, which means that he can sue people for free. To get a Fee Waiver a person must receive government assistance or have a limited income. According to Ewing, he has “over 450” clients. It’s likely that Ewing is in violation of California’s False Claims Act by claiming a Fee Waiver when he’s not entitled to it. Ewing claims on his many websites and other online listings that he a number of licenses. 1. Licensed CPA in CA, NM, AZ. His CA license was SURRENDERED, as a result of his Federal racketeering conviction; NM, EXPIRED; AZ, EXPIRED. 2. IRS Enrolled Agent: HE’S NOT A REGISTERED AGENT [IRS]. 3. Licensed Real Estate Broker: His CA license was REVOKED , as a result of Federal racketeering and stalking convictions; NV, NO RECORD; NM, NO RECORD. 4. Certified Financial Planner: NOT CERTIFIED [CFP Board]; NO RECORD [Investment Advisor Public Disclosure/SEC, FINRA]. 5. Series 7 Registered Representative, Series 24 General Securities Principal, Series 66 Registered Investment Advisor and other SEC licenses: NO RECORD [Investment Advisor Public Disclosure (SEC), FINRA]. 6. Life and Health Insurance Broker: The CA Department of Insurance has NO RECORD; AZ Dept. Ins., NO RECORD; NV, Dept. Ins., NO RECORD. 7. JD: He puts “JD” after his name so people will think he’s an attorney. He says he went to lawschool, but he’s NOT LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW IN ANY STATE. He says that putting JD after his name is the same as putting anybody else putting Ph.D. after their name, except that a Ph.D. isn’t trying to defraud anybody into thinking they’re a lawyer. He says “I am fully license (sic), bonded and insured to prepare taxes and the IRS has reviewed and approved me.” The IRS says “AFSP - Record of Completion,” which means Ewing completed an AFSP (Annual Season Filing Program), which is a tax preparation refresher course that can be done online. Anybody who takes an AFSP course can register with the IRS. The IRS doesn’t review and approve tax preparers. “Additionally, the IRS does not endorse any preparer or credential over another.” Until recently he had "Testimonials" on one of his websites that he copied and pasted from somebody else's website. The National Directory of Registered Tax Return Preparers & Professionals website contains a listing for Ewing, prepared by Ewing, which states “For tax preparation in San Diego, California, you can count on Anton A. Ewing, ATTY, CPA, EA, RTRP, SRTP …” These are a lot of letters which mean almost nothing. ATTY = Attorney, which he’s not. CPA = Certified Public Accountant, which he’s not. EA = IRS Enrolled Agent, which he’s not. RTRP = A Registered Tax Return Preparer must be age 18 or older, registered with the IRS (he registered by way of his online tax course), and have a valid Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). His is A174752, which means he completed “the required education (his online tax course) and maintaining a $5,000 tax preparer bond.” SRTP = Supervised Registered Tax Preparer, prepares tax returns under an attorney, CPA, or EA, which he isn’t unless he scammed some real attorney , CPA, or IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) into letting him use their name. Be very wary of doing business with Anton Ewing.
