The Bad, Eddie Abdalla, The Ugly, Stealing Money from Clients

Eddie is no angel. He pilfered money from clients at The Crew Source and when he left a mile high debt in its wake, with millions of dollars in debt and a bankruptcy, he started The Avent Techs Corporation. And, he’s driven that right into the ground, I am told. he changed the name to The Avent Techs LLC – LIKE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

People are smart. I can’t imagine existing clients going with him in his new scam adventure. FOR POTENTIALLY NEW CLIENTS, perhaps give it another thought. I found some pretty damming evidence online about what a crook Eddie and his merry thieves are. Take a peek before booking an event with The Avent Techs.

EVIDENCE

Is The Avent Techs Legit or Circling the Drain?

As a former client of The Crew Source, I remember paying handsomely for a service I never received and later came to learn that The Crew Source, run by Eddie (Edward Abdalla) was nothing more than a fucking scam. If he screwed me, he screwed others.

This guy is a creep to the core. Under one company, he flagrantly stole funds from clients and amassed a huge fortune that he refused to pay, and therefore owes millions of dollars! His debts are enormous. He doesn’t care. I’ve spoken to him about recouping my money and he talks down to me and basically proclaims that I’m an idiot who doesn’t know anything.

Then he started The Avent Techs Corporation. When that when down in flames and he left a trail of debt behind, he turned The Avent Techs into an LLC. Is he going to do the same thing? I don’t know. Speaking for myself, there is no way that I will trust him again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on ME.

BE CAREFUL, FOLKS. Eddie is running the show at The Avent Techs LLC. I can’t imagine he now has good intentions.

Thanks to a Good Samaritan, I can tell my story

I have been in the corporate events industry for years. I love my job so much: multi-tasking multiple events, coordinating countless schedules and admiring the fruits of our collective labors; it was a dream come true!

Unfortunately, my dream became a nightmare. This almost cost me my job of 12-years. Armed with new information, I don’t want other account executives, corporate event planners, or anyone else to suffer what I did.

A while back a colleague referred me to The Crew Source for events we were holding. Instead of going with my proven providers, I decided to give them a try, and they gave me a 15% discount. I knew my boss would appreciate that a lot, especially because the event was 40K.

I connected with Eddie Abdalla. He was really nice and very professional. I thought for sure this guy was going to do a fantastic job. He was referred by someone I knew and he was a real charmer on the phone. Convinced I was in good hands, I gave him the job. Contracts were signed and a check was sent to The Crew Source.

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, I stood in a massive ballroom that was supposed to be transformed into an elaborate and elegant setting for an awards ceremony. One hour into waiting, I called Eddie. No answer. So, I called the company, NO ANSWER. I started to panic when a technician walked in and asked me my name. I gave it to him and asked if the rest of his crew was with him. TO MY FACE HE SAID, “No. Eddie wanted me to tell you that you need to pay another 25K if you want his crew to work your event.

SAY WHAT?!

That’s extortion and insanity, I yelled. I continued calling Eddie. Two hours in, I called the police. There was nothing they could do. The event never happened. People who traveled thousands of miles were sent home. My company looked foolish and unprofessional. I was reprimanded and told that one more mistake of this magnitude and nature, and I was going to lose my job.

WHY AM I TELLING YOU THIS?

TCS (The Crew Source was run by Eddie. He ran it into the ground and had massive legal problems and still owes millions of dollars. He started The Avent Techs corporation and ran that into the ground with a whole new set of unpaid bills and debts to companies. NOW, he’s changed to The Avent Techs LLC. He’s going to do the same thing he’s been doing!!! Who knows how many clients will shell out thousands only to lose money and have no event?! You just know those legal problems and money he owes will come back to haunt him because he keeps doing the same thing!

MY ADVICE TO YOU, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE AVENT TECHS. NEVER USE THEM.

 

Clients BEWARE of The Avent Techs

I am a former client of The Crew Source. It’s very important to me that other potential clients understand that The Avent Techs is likely a SCAM OPERATION.

Eddie Abdalla was behind The Crew Source which he destroyed. He took money from clients, thousands of dollars from my company and never sent crew! He went into bankruptcy and has massive debt in the millions. His legal problems are severe. That being said, he started The Avent Techs Corporation. Apparently, he’s run that into the ground and renamed it The Avent Techs LLC. Like my company, I don’t want other companies to lose their hard earned money.

At our event, we had some pretty disgruntled techs under The Crew Source — They hadn’t been paid and expected us to pay. We already paid Eddie. It was very awkward and we weren’t going to pay twice.

Eddie started the Crew Source under false pretenses and then when that went under, he was in a slew of legal trouble, bankruptcy and owes millions of dollars in debt.

Good luck! RUN AS FAR AWAY FROM THE AVENT TECHS AND EDDIE AS POSSIBLE. I fear the worst. He’s defrauded so many companies under The Crew Source, I can’t imagine The Avent Techs, LLC would be any different. Can you?

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.”
