I have a bad feeling about The Avent Techs

I have a very bad feeling about The Avent Techs. I used to be a client of The Crew Source which was run by Eddie Abdalla. I worked with Eddie a few times. You know how they say, “The third time is the charm?” In my case, it was a disaster. A day before my company’s event, we were all supposed to meet at the location to set it up. Nobody showed up – I mean nobody, not a technician, a project manager, or Eddie. When I tried to reach him, he refused all of my calls and pushed them to voicemail.

A few months later, I came to learn that Eddie had done this to several other clients. The Crew Source, Eddie and a slew of other folks were in serious legal trouble! As a result of their misconduct, the judge found Eddie guilty and he’s in debt millions of dollars. He also filed for Bankruptcy because he “didn’t have the money to pay.” I use quotes because Eddie’s such a liar that I have a hard time believing he didn’t have the money. If I wasn’t the only client who gave him money and didn’t get the service I paid for, I have to believe there are others. Right?

Then Eddie started The Avent Techs corporation. Though I have not worked with him again for obvious reasons, I find it impossible to believe that he will leave clients high and dry as he did with The Crew Source. I think I might be right because a colleague told me that he ran it into the ground leaving another pile of debt in its wake. What I can’t fathom is that he RE-LAUNCHED The Avent Techs, LLC. I have good reason to believe that he plans to do the same thing again with clients he hasn’t burned.

Eddie is a con-artist, that’s very clear. I just want people to be aware of this and reconsider before booking this company for their next event. JUST, PLEASE GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT FIRST. Check Google. Here is my Google Search and results for “Eddie Abdalla Court Cases.”

The Avent Techs is a Scam Operation, AV Techs Beware!

Here is a copy of the latest email I received about what has happened. The following message is not mine but from a fellow free lancer. I’ll omit too much personal info but contact me if you need more info. I do have phone numbers and emails of attorneys and people involved.

Hi fellow former TCS folks, As you probably know, TCS is bankrupt and apparently no one is going to honor our invoices (I am owed $1250.00). After a ring-a-round the emails game of tag today (text from Eddie saying to send invoices-did that saying he would not pay, and a subsequent text to Eddie which is so far unanswered-he said he would get back to me after talking to his lawyer), I am coming to the conclusion that it is likely we may never be paid. I believe the only recourse that we have, short of a lawsuit, is to potentially withhold our labor until this matter is resolved. (Eddie and others have taken jobs at The AVent techs. But this will stand a much better chance if we act together. Between the all of us, we may have 20-30 contacts and that may matter. I look forward to any thoughts you all may have.
