State Investigators Arrest Two Riverside Men In Tax Fraud Probe

November 01, 2013

Posh home and Auto Sales Businesses Raided

State investigators with the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization raided a million dollar-plus residence in Riverside and two automobile sales businesses Tuesday, October 29.   After serving the search warrants, investigators arrested Ahmad Mohamod Sami, 38 and Nader M. Sami, 45, both of Riverside.   According to the Riverside County Jail’s website, the two men were each booked on three felony charges including white collar crime, failure to turn over government money and filing false tax returns.

Investigators searched the homes on Wyndham Hill Drive and could be seen loading potential evidence into rented moving vans.  Parked on the two acre parcel were two Bentleys and a Jaguar, all with paper auto dealer plates on them.

Investigators also searched and removed items from A-one Auto Centers located in Riverside and San Bernardino.

“While this investigation has stirred up questions and intrigue among the public in Riverside, the investigators must go about their duties to determine what laws have been violated and see this case through the prosecution process,” said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents nearly 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California including investigators with the Franchise Tax Board.

is it hard to qualify for a car dealer license bond ???

EZDealerBond.com


In order for a bond company to approve a vehicle dealer bond  of $10,000 or $50,000,

they will run your credit report.

If there are no negative items showing on your credit report and have a decent credit risk score,

you should not have any problems obtaining the bond.

You do not have to own real estate in order to obtain a vehicle dealer bond.

You will have problems obtaining the bond if you have any negative items showing on your credit report,

such as, bankruptcy, collect accounts, short sales, foreclosures, current past dues, etc.

It is possible to obtain the bond with other than perfect credit,

although the bond company may require financial statements (both personal & business statements),

copies of bank statements for the last 3 months, sometimes a co-signer is required.

Some bond companies will approve the bond with negative items showing,

but will charge a larger premium for the bond.

EZDealerBond.com

Mike at 714-797-5780 can help you with your bond needs, good, or bad credit.

You do have the option to post a cash deposit with DMV in lieu of the vehicle dealer surety bond.

You need to be aware that the law states that DMV may keep the deposit up to 3 years

after you are no longer licensed as a dealer or a superior court judge orders release of the deposit.
