Terry Keith Hammond, aka Terry Hammond, aka Keith Hammond, currently resides and is perpitrating his scams in Jasper, Alabama.  He manages the WQJJ 100.1 Fox-FM radio station in Jasper, as well as MANY Facebook pages (the most popular of these called "Walker County Area News" www.facebook.com/walkercountyareanews ).  He also has a website called www.monsterfm.com.  He uses all of these mediums to scam money from individuals.  He was convicted of felony theft in Shamrock, Texas for altering checks made out to a radio station that he worked for (owned by the town's Economic Development Commission) and deposited them to his personal account.  He was convicted and was sent to prison.  Because of this, the FCC dismissed his broadcasting license for life (

.....fcc.gov/eb/Orders/2009/DA-09-1370A1.html">http://transition.fcc.gov/eb/Orders/2009/DA-09-1370A1.html).  The station he operates now (WQJJ 100.1 Fox-FM in Jasper, AL) is a Low Power FM station that is licensed in his wife's name (Bessie P. Hammond) as President of the fake non-profit "North Alabama Public Service Broadcasters".  Additionally, he has been charged with multiple crimes in Baldwin County, Alabama in the 1990's (archived on the www.mugshots.com website...just search his name).

Some of the known scams that Terry Keith Hammond has and is currently participating in is asking people to donate money to make-believe cause (one of his favorites involve "single-mother in need") that requests people who view his Facebook pages to send money to his monsterfm.com paypal account that is reciept as "WARN payment" (the WARN payment is another scam altogether in the form of a subscription to weather alerts).  He also scams people seeking help with filing FCC applications for new radio stations.  He masquerades as a "engineering consultant", but once the money comes, all contact is ceased.  An example is here http://littlerock.craigslist.org/bfs/3940698387.html.  

You may expect a rebuttal of this report by Terry Keith Hammond under an anonymous or fake name (such as Brett Elbore, Michael Roberts, Terry Madison, Terry Manassole, etc) (he also uses these and other aliases on Facebook) saying something to the effect that this is a personal attack by a competeing radio station or the like and insert the term "good old boy politics" somewhere.  He always tries to make it seem like others are coming to his defense with "facts" that have no source that can be provided, and he is unable to debunk the facts that I have supplied with these links.  These things will prove that I know who I am talking about and am well versed in his character (or lack thereof).

If you have been scammed by Terry Keith Hammond or any of the aforementioned entities, please contact your local law enforecent agency, the Walker County Sheriff's Office here in Alabama (205-302-6464).  You may also contact the FCC, as they are keeping a report on information on this individual (http://www.fcc.gov/contact-us).

More information on this individual and known his known scams can be found HERE.  You may also report your experiences with this individual on that page.  Thank you and be safe out there!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Other's complaints mirror mine

AUTHOR: Micah - ()

I too have been taken, ripped off, fooled, by Keith Hammond.  Even the rebuttals to people's complaints by persons supporting Mr Hammond are written in the same tense and meter as any email I've ever received from Keith.  

As far as the money I'm owed, I've completely given up on getting anything for it.  Hammond is wise enough in his ways to know that it's not worth paying lawyers for certain amounts, and not worth the time of small claims court, as he won't have to pay monetarily-only in other ways.  He'll just change the name of his company, and move on to the next sap who feels sorry for him.  He knows how people work, and people are generally good and helpful.  Sadly, he takes advantage of them.  I hold no ill will necessarily at Keith, but I do pity him greatly.  However, I'll always take the time to warn anyone in the area of his misguided ways.  Thankfully, I have the resource of this site to direct them to for further reference to support my claim.  

I am not from any other rival, I'm simply a person who deserved better.  Keith has been reported to the FCC, better business burea, Alabama Broadcasters Association, the local police department.  I'll continue my quest to let others know about him, and he'll have to work hard at his game.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Response to complaint of Kim (who is not a real person).

AUTHOR: PT Haynes - ()

Kim, I would be most interested in knowing what business it is that you are affiliated with? I have been the data entry person for this radio station and I pay on the accounts for it also during the time period immediately preceeding your claimed scamming. As much as I hate to tell you, they do not even offer an ad package in that amount. I would also like to know what power company hosts that account that you speak of since the radio station's account is not listed as Mr. Hammond's account just as the home account is not, also. In fact, the name "Hammond" is not on either account. In other words Kim, you are a liar and I can prove it. None of your fraudulent claims are even remotely possible so, you may want to back up and try to come up with a better lie.

#3 Consumer Comment

So true

AUTHOR: Kimberly - ()

Yes, I can vouch that everything in this report is the truth!  I have been taken by this crook to the sum of $900 in advertising on his radio station and facebook pages.  I never got the promised advertising.  Phone calls went unanswered and when I tried to contact his through private message on his facebook page, I was immediately banned without answer.  Not enough lost to trouble with an attorney, which I guess id fortuitous.  While my blood was boiling over this issue, I noticed that he kept asking for people to donate money to pay for these single mother's power bills on facebook.  I got curious and contacted the power company with the phone number he provided with the bill and the account was in HIS name!  Imagine that!  This man is the biggest crook in our area, but the number of people he thinks he has fooled is way smaller than he imagines and is shrinking by the day!  It's just a matter of time before he slips up and gets sent back to prison where he belongs!

#5 Author of original report

WELL???

AUTHOR: Jordan - ()

I didn't think so.  You just feel "obligated" to take up for a criminal and attack those who inform others of his criminality.  Why?  Because he brought you some inflatables at "no cost"...except to publically send people and businesses his way.  So you will be an accomplice to these people eventually getting scammed?  And why do you think that a man of Christ should get on the internet and slander aonther innocent radio station?  I do not work for a radio station.  And just like everything else, you do not have proof.  You were asked to do this by Terry Keith Hammond because he didn't charge you for a couple of inflatables at your "church" event.  You don't play child games?  Nore do I, hypocrite.  Any Christian testimony that you may ave had, well, you have tarnished it here for sure.  And like I said...If that radio station would like to perue legal action against your shooting off at the mouth without facts to back them up, I am available to testify that I have filed this report and have absolutely ZERO to do with ANY radio station.  I'm just a concerned citizen that warns people and shares the not-so-good-news of criminal activities.  And you have a lot to learn about a true Christian ministry.  My suggestion is to leave the facts to me, and you go study the words of Christ (hint: they're written in RED).  Good day, "reverend".

AND???

AUTHOR: Jordan - ()

Reverend,

So, do you have some evidence you would like to submit to debunk the facts that I have presented as they appear on official government documentation, or do you just not like the fat that they exist?

Pure Stupidity-The Walker County Way?

AUTHOR: Rev. Dewayne Guyton - ()

I read this report about Keith Hammond and the first thing that came to my mind was how ignorant and stupid people can be. Seriously how low will someone to go to get rid of the competition? This report was submitted by someone affiliated with another radio station in Jasper, Alabama who is used to doing things to "Walker County Way" which is by intimidation and false accusation. I can't wait until the physical threats start, and they will start because that's the Walker County Way!!!! My question is why can't people in Walker County simply accept that there are other folks who wish to run a business. If folks would mind their own business and pay more attention to their own issues, then maybe they'd be happier.
