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.

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.
- Scroll, scroll, scroll, legal documents and videos about Eddie from disgruntled techs, I think.
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.
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.”
