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.”
I am sick and tired of over-rated stupid AV technicians writing nasty shit about me and sending emails to me and my colleague Tammy Rowe. I’m here to set the record straight!
Tammy and I have been working together for years. I’ve known her since we both worked at VTS. When I left to start The Crew Source, Tammy stayed on at VTS. She used their Rolodex of Techs to help launch TCS. Though TCS has dissolved, I started a new company, The Avent Techs. We do AV labor in San Diego. Tammy still works with me recruiting technicians from VTS to freelance for TAT. So far, it’s been great. Business is good and everybody is doing well.
Bottom line, we pay techs when we feel they do a good job. If you think working a 10 hour gig ensures that you get paid, you’re an idiot. I don’t care if other labor companies always pays their bills! We’re about quality. Tammy and I pay our technicians IF they’ve actually done the job correctly. We will not apologize for that!
If you are an expert technician, contact Tammy here and she will make sure you get screened for one of our San Diego events.
Eddie owes us the money and the reason is he booked us when he was in bankruptcy and knew he wasn’t going to pay us. I had an agreement with Eddie and The Crew Source, now defunct, which is a bunch of bullshit.
Eddie claims someone else owes us the money. Lies, lies, lies. How can someone else say they owe me money when he does? Now he takes all the resources, the employees and claims some other company owes me money. Where’s the logic in that?! It’s like if company “A” closed and company “B” opened. Does company “B” owe company “A’s” employee’s money? OF COURSE THEY DON’T.
The same scumbags NOW running The Avent Techs, who are idiots, still hiring and using freelance AV Technicians and NOT PAYING THEM.
BEWARE OF Eddie Abdalla and The Avent Techs. Do not work for them. They owe me and a bunch of us money for jobs we worked and didn’t get paid for.
