Subject: F.T.B. RAID
Date: June 13, 2001

On May 2, 2001, 25 F.T.B. Agents came into my office. They did not knock, or announce who they were. They STORMED though our office doors with GUNS pointed at each of the 18 workers there, YELLING, "move away from your desk, and you will not get HURT"!!!

Three Agents broke though my wife's office, and all three held guns to her head. My wife is 4'10' and 95 pounds, yet the F.T.B. felt that it took three of them with guns drawn, to make sure she didn't hurt any of those poor weak F.T.B. Agents.

Even with guns pointed at her head, and having her life in danger, she still had the courage to ask who they were. Their answer was they didn't need to tell her! Also, she asked if they had a search warrant, once again she was told they didn't need to give her a search warrant.

This stared at 8:45 Am and lasted until 10:55 Pm.

At 9:00 am I drove up to my office in shock to see the people from my office being lead out of the building with guns at their heads!.

Around 9:30 am the F.T.B. went to my home and raided that also. I had asked them to at least let me call our Nanny because she was there alone, with her 3 year old son. I was informed that that was not possible! So I told them not to pull their same TERRORIST ATTACK at my home, as they had done at my office.

When the F.T.B. arrived at my home they did knock, however, the Nanny didn't understand who they were, and would not open the door, so they broke the door in.

While all of this was going on, the Huntington Beach, and Fountain Valley police, just stood there, and watched as the Agents performed their TERRORIST ACTS!

After I arrived, I asked ED WILSON for a copy of the search warrant, his statement was that he didn't need to give it to me! However, after more than one hour, and asking at least 10 times, Agent WILSON handed me the search warrant.

By this time the HUNTINGTON BEACH, and FOUNTAIN VALLEY police, had left. As I read the warrant I noticed that the date for the search warrant was for MAY 1, 2000, yet they were raiding us on MAY 2, 2001. Right away I demanded that they leave until they could return with a valid search warrant. Agent WILSON just laughed, and walked back into my office. So I called the HUNTINGTON BEACH police, and asked them to return, and stop the crime that was going on at my office.

HUNTINGTON BEACH sent over one officer. I asked him if HUNTINGTON BEACH had seen this search warrant before helping the F.T.B. with the raid. His answer was he didn't know. At that time I pointed out that the search warrant was over one year old. Search warrants are ONLY good for 10 days. The officer informed me there was nothing he could do because it wasn't his search warrant!

For the next 14 hours a few us just sat in the parking lot and watched as these terrorists stole 289 items from my office. I had even called the Orange County Sheriff to come and help us. I was told they would send someone, yet not one person came to our aid.

I was so upset that it wasn't until the next day that we noticed that the search warrant didn't even have my office ADDRESS on it! Nor was there even a description of my building! The only address and description on the search warrant was for my home!

By MAY 9th, 2001, I had filed my ex-parte Motion to quash the search warrant in violation of my 4th amendment rights. As JUDGE JAMES P. MARION took the bench he stated that this was not a hearing because he didn't know if he had the right to quash the search warrant. What a LIE!!! He is the one that signed it!! SO once again we came back on MAY 14th 2001 to be heard again. Once again the JUDGE stated that this was not a hearing, and that just the day before Agent WILSON came in with his own ex-parte Motion to get a 30 day extension. We were not informed of that motion at all! JUDGE MARION granted the 30 day extension, without my attorney being there to argue the issue. (Note, section 1534 states, that after serving the search warrant it SHALL BE FILED WITH IN 10 DAYS, not 48 days latter!).

As of JUNE 9th, 2001 no charges have yet to be filed, nor has the search warrant been filed.

Each time we have been in Court we were told that because I was not a defendant, that my 4th Amendment rights had no bearing. Well if the JUDGE would read the 4th Amendment, he would see that no where does it state that our 4th Amendment doesn't apply unless you are charged first! If this were the case, then that would mean that the government could come into every Citizens home, at any time, without a search warrant, steal your belongings and keep them forever, or until they file some sort of charges!

What was the F.T.B. after? Well, after 30 days of my own research, here's what I have found out. My ex-CFO was on a 10 year probation, which I didn't know until a few weeks ago. This CFO had stole over $400,000.00 from people in their 70's to 80's. She had been sentenced to 10 years in jail, yet did only 402 days at the county jail, and then put on a 10 year probation.

On MARCH 15th 2001, the probation officer BRUCE MOORE raided her place, and her boy friends place, because she had stoped paying back the money she promised to pay back.

After going to court she was told she must come up with $376,000.00 by JUNE 28th or go to prison for the next 8 years. So she made a deal with the D.A.. She told them that she could show the I.R.S. that we had under reported what our company made in 1997, 1998 and 1999. However I was on to their game a few weeks before the raid. The I.R.S. had sent a letter to my ex-CFO by mistake to my office. So I called the I.R.S. Agent DAVID VAN DYKE and asked why he was sending information on my company to this CFO. His response was that I had given her Power of Attorney, I told him that was not the case and to please fax me a copy of the power of attorney.

Not until three days latter did I receive the fax. Right away I knew that they were fake. Agent VAN DYKE asked me how I knew they were fake. I told him that the Power of Attorney was for the period from 1995 though 2000. Agent VAN DYKE said so what, I told him that this CFO didn't start working here until late 1999, so there was no way that she had power of attorney for those years. Plus I told Agent VAN DYKE that I had a civil law suit, and criminal charges, filed against her for grand theft!

At this point the I.R.S. knew that THEY could not come in here, so they apparently handed it down to the F.T.B. to come in and raid us.

Then on JUNE 1st, 2001 I went to the I.R.S. building and asked for my IMF file. After reading it once again, I was shocked, the file had been changed!!! Someone at the I.R.S. had changed my file to show that from 1995 though 1999 that I had given someone Power of Attorney to go into my files.

How do I know? Well even though the F.T.B. stole my IMF files from my office, which I had run in 1998 and 1999, they didn't know that what they stole were only copies. I had the ORIGINALS off-site. Now the originals show for the years 1995 though 1999 that NO ONE had Power of Attorney! Which means someone at the I.R.S. had to go in and change my files, so that this ex-CFO could look at my files, and help the I.R.S. doctor up my files, so the she can get off doing her 8 years in the state prison!! ( The I.R.S. will pay any informer 10% of whatever they find.) The only way they can find anything is if the I.R.S., AND the ex-CFO, doctors up my files. What they don't know is that from 1987 thru 1998 we always had an out-side C.P.A. do my returns!

The following is a [partial] report by Nick Jesson, the business owner that was raided May 2, 2001. The described failures to adhere to proper procedure on the part of the police and judge is typical of what is described throughout the country when it comes to tax matters, but the defects, both unintentional and, if Nick's claims are accurate, outright fraudulent in this instance could nonetheless prove more than fatal to the government's case against NTD Electronics. For such a high profile target, it is surprising this would happen. The most damning allegations, if true, whether sactioned by higher levels of the IRS or by renegade lower level agents, describe a high risk gamble on the part of the IRS. Dan Meador
