  • in 2010 we payed ameripride tax group to help us with our tax issues and now we cant get ahold of them they do not return our calls and we recently received a final notice to levy properties and bank acounts they have not done anything they were payed to do and now we are risking loosing everything we have worked for our entire life..

  • I got Torin Beeler and Jared Bocachica fired from United Law group. Jared would tell his sales people that they earned bonuses, but he would never pay them out. Since Sean Rutledge was already under investigation with the bar, I called in to a contact at the bar and put more heat on Sean.

    When they found out it was me (this was after I had left the firm the week before), they asked me why I did it. I then told them it was because Jared owed me money that he never intended to pay.

    They paid me the $1800 that was owed to me. Believe me when I say, I was the only contractor to ever get a bonus from ULG. Damien Kutzner fired Torin and Jared the next week, failing to pay them tens of thousands that he owed them : )

    Payback is a mutha…all for $1800. Torin, Jared, Damien and Jaime Esparza are all con artists who will spend their most sexually active years in prison!

  • I found myself on the end of a relentless series of marketing text messages to my wireless phone, all with fake numbers that do not identify the company or allow you to speak with anyone. In order to stop them I finally replied “help” via text and got a live call. The  female operator took my bogus info (tax obligation 10K plus, employed, need help) and within a few minutes I got another call and was on the phone with Juan Bocachica, an “advisor” with Pinnacle Tax and Financial.

    I’ve been investigating them for few weeks now, attempting to discover who sold them my info as a lead. They allege a third party company originated the text messaging and  the screening call, yet refuse to provide any evidence to support their claim.

    Through numerous call backs I’ve spoken with Victoria Burns, CPA who confirmed that she, Jaun Bocachica, and Torin Beeler are now with Pinnacle, coming over from Ameripride about 90 days ago.

    I’m working on a story about illegal text messaging (the new spam) and would be happy to communicate with anyone who has more information about this group. Please feel free to contact me via email: jbir6711 AT gmail or by phone 281-870-2950. Confidentiality is assured.

    Wouldn’t you guess it.. these guys are all playing the “change the name of the company and move” game.. They moved their original company and are now calling it Ameripride Tax Group. One of the same owners of Kirkland Green “Kenny Epstein” just so happens to be a registered owner for Ameripride. They’ve also hired United Law Group’s Ex employees after it got shut down in a FBI raid in March of 2010.

    There is also public record of a Lawsuit United Law Group is in against Kenny Epstein and all the previous Managers and Directors of United Law Group. I guess the attorneys are upset that these scammers move from place to place. See for yourself online at the superior court website at:

    I hope everyone does their homework before doing business with what seems to be a “New” Tax settlement company on paper but is actually just seems to be another scan, ran by the same scammers as Kirkland Green and United Law Group.

    I went to the California Secretary Of State California http://kepler.ss.ca.gov/cbs.as… and pulled up Ameripride Tax Group and Kenny Epstein (Owner of Kirkland Green) is listed as the owner of Ameripride Tax Group. This is a typical scam companies do wipe the slate clean and gather in a new set of victims with a brand new image! Buyer Beware! Make sure you do your own research before you decide to do business with these guys!

    Torin Beeler and Jared Bocachica from AmeriPride Tax Group told me that if I did not pay their company $6,800 for my Federal tax debt that I was going to go to jail. They told me that they were tax collectors collecting on behalf of the Federal Government.

    They indicated that if I paid them the $6,800 that I would be in compliance and not have to go to jail. I was so scared because I was afraid that I was going to get thrown in jail that I set up a payment plan with AmeriPride Tax Group for the $6,800 they were demanding.

    After they had deducted the $6,800 I was still getting notices from the IRS. I called the IRS and explained the situation, and the IRS indicated to me that they had no record of AmeriPride Tax Group, Torin Beeler or Jared Bocachica ever contacting them in regards to the matter and that nothing had been done.

    It turns out that I gave the $6,800 that I should have given the IRS to AmeriPride Tax Group, Torin Beeler and Jared Bocachica who stole my money.

    Please do not fall for this scam. If they contact you do not let them steal your money.

    Ameripride is what the BBB calls “accredited.” What the term “accredited with the BBB” actually means is that Ameripride bought their rating. If they had not paid the BBB Ameripride would almost certainly have an F, which from my experience with this organization is what they actually deserve. I say that because to the best of my knowledge the BBB does not give out “F minuses.”

    Jared Bocachica from AmeriPride Tax Group told me that if I did not pay them $4,800 to settle my taxes the IRS was going to throw me in jail. He guaranteed that if I paid him $4,800 that he would get the taxes reduced to anywhere between 10% of what I owe and nothing at all. Three months later the IRS still had not been contacted byAmeriPride Tax Group. I called up AmeriPride Tax Group to demand a refund and Torin Beeler told me that if I filed a complaint against AmeriPride Tax Group that I would be thrown in jail for tax fraud.

    I have since found out that Jared Bocachica and Torin Beeler are notorious for this type of fraud. Their last firm United Law Group was shut down for exactly the same type of theft. The three ring leaders from United Law Group and AmeriPride Tax Group are: Jared Bocachica, Torin Beeler and Jaime Esparza. The three have earned themselves the nickname “The 3 Theft Amigos” for ripping so many hard-working people off.

    If The 3 Theft Amigos from AmeriPride Tax Theft Group contact you do not fall for their lies. They are not looking to help you. They are only attempting to steal your money.

    Every professional knows that you do not go to the Better Business Bureau (because the BBB allows scam artists like AmeriPride Tax Group to buy ratings) to do your due diligence. Taxes are just like going to the doctor. You always want to get a second opinion from someone local that you can sit down with, and they can examine your situation with you before making any rash or impulsive decisions based on fear that someone is trying to extract from you over the phone.
    Regardless of what AmeriPride Tax Group says there are plenty of highly qualified tax professionals in your area. If you actually live in one without one please let me know and I’ll move there to set up shop. In all of my time as a tax professional I’ve never run into an area that did not have an abundance of tax professionals that are more than qualified to handle tax controversy. Be smart. Don’t get hustled by someone from AmeriPride Tax Group that you’ll never meet face-to-face because they want to steal your money, over the phone. Take the time to meet with someone local and then make up your mind. It is doubtful that an additional day or two will have an impact on your situation.

    Jared Bocachica-Torin Beeler-Jaime Esparza are scamming American Homeowners and Taxpayers and getting away with it! These so called “3 Amigos” go from shop to shop taking their sales team and sales tactics across Orange County operating as a SALES Mill. They leave a trail of corruption and lies. I am investigating this group and under covering their tactics that they have been trying to hide. First they have fake titles to sound important “Compliance Manager” “Paralegal”, “Tax Consultants” or whatever the CURRENT industry they are in they use some fake names as titles. These guys are something else.. They started at” Help Modify Now” with Larry Gunter. Who was the owner. Jared Bocachica is the Leader of the group. The followers are Torin Beeler and Jaime Esparza. They go into each office and setup the sales floor based on false promises. They setup the Sales scripts and training manuals for Help Modify Now. They left” Help Modify Now” right before the company got raid and shut down. Larry Gunter went to jail. Jared Bocachica and the “3 amigos” left in time to cover their trail (“3 Amigos” is their nickname according to those that worked for them) . They moved on to United Law Group, Inc. Where they took the same sales outline and training manuals as Help Modify Now. I interviewed several employees and they explained that Jared Bocachica, Torin Beeler and Jaime Esparza would have daily meetings with the SALES floor and train on “HARMING” this is a tactic to emotionally put down an individual so they are broken. Which is a form of Abuse. And LIES.. They Worked at United Law Group for one and a half years with the Owner Sean Rutledge and COO Damian Kutzner. Sean Rutledge lost his Bar license and sold United law Group to Robert Buscho who is just as bad as Sean. Robert Buscho is still doing Loan Modifications even after it is a felony to collect upfront fees per SB94. Damian Kutzner is being sued by FTC and being sued by the BK Trustee for ULG. The interesting part is that Jarred Bocachica, Torin Beeler and Jaime Esparza left 3 months before United Law Group got raided by the FBI. They left in time to cover their trails again! They are now at AmeriPride Tax Group in Santa Ana with all the EX EMPLOYEES of United Law Group and Help Modify Now.I have seen 40-50 employees coming and going from the offices off Pullman that i can identify as ex employees of ULG and/or Help Modify Now. Joe Dochrin, Billy Joe, Joe Greschim, Eric Polin, Phillip Brenton just to name a few. They are operating the same SALES tactics as a “SALES MILL” with the same group that goes with them from company to company hurting customers and leaving in time for those left behind to deal with their mess. I am currently investigating this operation and believe that these 3 (Jared Bocachica, Torin Beeler and Jaime Esaprza) are the main reason these companies have issues as it starts with the SALES FLOOR. The owners are responsible as well. However these guys need to be STOPPED. Any information is helpful in my search for more information into these 3 guys. Below are links to the trails of companies they started up then ran each company out of business but they all left right before each company got raided. Call that coincidence or guilty conscience?

  • Bpreston- if you still need to make an arrangement to pay your taxes, here is how:
    1. Make sure you have filed all of your tax returns
    2. If you can make a $150-200 a month payment to the IRS (for about 5 years), then you can set up a payment plan with the IRS on-line at http://www.irs.gov/individuals
    3. If this is the first time you have had an IRS problem, ask them to waive your penalties under the “first time penalty abatement” procedures- it may save you some of the money that you lost

    Lastly, complain to the FTC, your attorney general, and to your local police department.

    If you need some more help, for free, you can contact me at irsmind.com or at my email [email protected]

  • Torin Beeler and Jared Bocachica from AmeriPride Tax Group told me that if I did not pay their company $6, 800 for my Federal tax debt that I was going to go to jail. They told me that they were tax collectors collecting on behalf of the Federal Government.

    They indicated that if I paid them the $6, 800 that I would be in compliance and not have to go to jail. I was so scared because I was afraid that I was going to get thrown in jail that I set up a payment plan with AmeriPride Tax Group for the $6, 800 they were demanding.

    After they had deducted the $6, 800 I was still getting notices from the IRS. I called the IRS and explained the situation, and the IRS indicated to me that they had no record of AmeriPride Tax Group, Torin Beeler or Jared Bocachica ever contacting them in regards to the matter and that nothing had been done.

    It turns out that I gave the $6, 800 that I should have given the IRS to AmeriPride Tax Group, Torin Beeler and Jared Bocachica who stole my money.

    Please do not fall for this scam. If they contact you do not let them steal your money.

    • Bpreston- if you still need to make an arrangement to pay your taxes, here is how:
      1. Make sure you have filed all of your tax returns
      2. If you can make a $150-200 a month payment to the IRS (for about 5 years), then you can set up a payment plan with the IRS on-line at http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=149373,00.html
      3. If this is the first time you have had an IRS problem, ask them to waive your penalties under the “first time penalty abatement” procedures- it may save you some of the money that you lost

      Lastly, complain to the FTC, your attorney general, and to your local police department.

  • This comment is from Jeremy Foti AKA the Con.

    Kirkland Green was closed by the owners after Elias Ponce stole over $192,316 from refunds supposed to be sent to clients via the servicing of Jeremy’s servicing company Bankruptcy Alternative Servicing. Kirkland Green’s owner in fear of a class action lawsuit from the 200 customers that were ripped off from their refunds closed the business and had Elias Ponce arrested for check fraud and money laundering. That back fired when the Police determined Elias Ponce had help from an Owner. The owner is supposedly Kenny Epstein.

    Kenny Epstein stole the funds from BAS in order to start Ameripride Tax Relief. It is estimated that the cost of startup was roughly $120,000 as some of the old managers from Ameripride Tax Relief have said they heard Kenny Discussing.

    The meat and potatoes of the organization came from United Law Group which was raided by the FBI for stealing $3,000 per customer from 8,000 customers in the USA.

    Kenny when you see this just know that you had many opportunities to right your wrongs. Unfortunately you cannot see the light.
