Back in November of 2007 a good friend of mine turned me on to his neighbor, Alden Allen of Hesperia, whom he had just recently introduced himself to. Alden had mentioned that he has a sports memorbilia business and was also able to get LCD TVs at wholesale price in bulk orders. At the time my heating and air business was struggling and I thought this would be a good way to get ahead of my bills for a couple months. Another buddy of mine invested in the TVs as well which made me feel safer about the whole deal.

Well, needless to say, things went south. Delivery dates of before or by Christmas were pushed to New Years, then later in January which rolled into February and is now in March. Excuses compounded by lies, including the death of his mother, along with his personal financial troubles due to her death were daily occurences. The person who reported him using fradulent or bogus UPS tracking numbers with his old business A&C Mobile Audio is all too familiar, as is Gomez Tires in Fontana where the delivery truck which contained my TVs was supposedly being held as collateral for yet another mess he had gotten himself into.

After trying the threats of court and police I decided to play pathetic and let him know he was hurting my family financially and emotionally because of his actions, and that I needed help to make my house payment before it was 30 days late. He then gave me a bank routing number and account number to make my payment over the phone last minute, apoligized for the inconvienence and said he would make it all up to me, that he was gonna take care of me for being so cool and patient with him.

After another week there is still no sign of TVs, and the cut off day, today was met by the excuse of a car jacking resulting in a skull fracture (I wish). I decided to google his name, not expecting to see anything, when this site popped up. I saw the article written in 2004 and as soon as I began to read it I just knew it was the same guy burning the same kind of people, hard working, nice, family men looking to cash in on a good deal. I immediately thought of the account number he had given me just days before, I looked up the bank the routing number belonged to and found it belonged to an account drawn in McCallen Texas. My nightmare continues.

If anyone who reads this has any information that can be helpful in getting this scum off the streets and behind bars, please respond to this article. I will update with further information as I get it.

My Two Cents About R. P.'s Comments

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, May 14, 2008

I just got a chance to read R. P.'s comments above regarding how legit Alden Allen Jr. is and his sob story about his family. Honestly, I could care less what happens to him and his family and you obviously are either him posing as someone else or one of his family members posting on his behalf. Lets get the facts straight here. Alden Allen doesn't care about anyone except himself and I have lots of proof and people who can back up that statement. We all know he will soon get what he has coming, but to sit there and try and sell us, the people who he bent over, on some sad story about his family and how they need him is just ridiculous. If he cared about his family at all, he would have never had got himself into this mess he is in. Bottom line is the guy just has lies coming out of every orifice in his body. Don't believe anything this guy tells you, its all lies.

Now regarding Bryan's follow up advise... I completely disagree. If you know where this guy is and where he is living now, post that info all over the web to get the word out. Take action and do everything you can to report what he has done. Who cares if you don't get your money back at least you maybe he will get put on radar so that these things wont happen to other hard working individuals. Soon, the name Alden Allen Jr. will be all over so that everyone will know what this guy is like.

I made the mistake of waiting to long to take action. I have signed stuff by him and records of everything he took from me. I even took the place where he left my truck to court and was luckily able to get money out of them and my truck back. Don't think that doing something will result in nothing because you never know... that is all I have to say about that. We need to get in contact with each other some how.

Up to his old scams again?

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Hey guys... my name is Chris and I am the one who posted the report on Alden Allen Jr. from back in 2004. Man it seems like ages ago but it refreshing to hear that Alden is back up to his old tricks again because that means that theres a chance that I can still find him. Personally, I though he would be dead by now because of the stupid stuff he pulled. One day he will cross the wrong person and it may just happen that way. At any rate guys, feel free to contact me and we can talk. if you want my cell phone number, email me (((ROR redacted))) and I will give you my number. Alden if your reading this, don't think I forgot about you. You owe me a lot and you almost cost me my marriage.

By the way, the only reason why I did a search for his name just now is because another one of his victims contacted my today to tell me that Alden might have used his SS# to get cell phone accounts and avoid paying taxes. This is serious crimes and if it was really Alden that did these things then hes in for more then just a small claim coming his way.

Contact me guys I would be more then happy to contribute.

Regarding my "I wish" comment

AUTHOR: Bryan - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Thursday, April 10, 2008

Bad choice of words I suppose, and to imply I have anything to do with the incident that occured is a bit presumptious. I was actually sitting at home with my son, my girlfriend and my best friend awaiting a call from Al about "the tvs" when I was informed he was involved in a car jacking in Hesperia which I confirmed with the Hesperia P.D the next morning. Thats when I decided to do some research, found past court cases and this website. So as far as me posting it on the day the incident occured, and it being "interesting", tell me what YOU would do in my situation.

Tell me what YOU would do if someone took $9490.00 of YOUR money and didn't produce. Tell me how YOU would feel when YOU havent been able to make a house payment for 3 months. Tell me how YOU would feel when YOU cant afford to give YOUR son a first birthday party. Maybe YOU can give me money to pay my friends back what they're out. Im very interested how YOU would handle the situation after 6 months of waiting for any resolution. "I WISH" YOU felt how my family and I do, and then YOU can tell me if he's still a legit business man and if my comment is still "interesting." However I do regeret posting an address, but I can't take that back either. As far as everyone else posting about Al, good luck with any criminal action. I was told that it's not criminal, but civil because there was a verbal agreement, and we all know civil judgements are a joke. I've basically come to realize I might as well have blown my money in Vegas, cuz I'm never gonna see it again and at least then I woulda had fun at the craps table for a few days.

Also, if anyone posting or reading this who is involved with him is palnning or persuing physical harm or revenge, please think again. It's not worth it, its only money. As much as its hurt me mentally and financially to be in my situation, I'd much rather let law enforcement and the court system do the punishment. You live, you learn, you go on.

#4 Consumer Suggestion

Bryan and Ed, we should exchange safe contact information.

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, April 09, 2008

Bryan and Ed,

Again, our stories are identical. There is power in numbers, therefore we must all come together to lawfully take action. Several months ago, I spoke to a Los Angeles Major Fraud Division Investigator suggested by a local district attorney's office and found similar information on Alden Donald Allen Jr. We should arrange a reasonable time and place to meet and discuss further legal action against Alden Donald Allen Jr.; I suggest we convene at a police station. Please respond as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Sounds like Brian and Mike got scammed the same way we all did. Same LCD tv story. Same rip off, lying scum bag. He got about 30 of us in San Bernardino. We have alot of good info on this guy but I would still like to hear what you guys have on our friend Alden. We can trade info. We too, have police officers investigating this situation.

Oh. And whoever R.P. is. You sound alot like his wife or some family member. You mentioned "Positive Customers", he positively stole $20,000 from us.

Here's a list of MORE positive customers that did business with Mr. Alden Allen. I pulled this from the San Bernardino Superior Court web site. Alden and his equally scum bag wife are being sued by everyone.... And this is just one county. 03',04' and 05' look the same as this.

Bryan,

I have contacted three law enforcement agencies (Baldwin Park Police Dept., Major Fraud Division of Los angeles and the San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept.) concerning Alden Allen Jr. We share the same hope of lawfully taking action against this heartless person. My brother was scammed by this individual one month prior to your contact with him; Our story is identical to yours. Please respond as soon as possible. I will check this website daily.

"Information regarding Comments Made In Report"

AUTHOR: R. P. - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, March 29, 2008

First of all, I would like to start off about the comments that were made in regards to a Car Jacking incident that resulted in a Skull Fracture to Alden Allen is far from an excuse. He suffered very serious injuries from this incident, and is very lucky to even have survived this attack. What concerns me the most is that this report was filed on the same day, just hours after the incident took place while he was in the hospital being treated for his injuries, and the comment (I Wish) was made as well regarding this incident, very interesting.

I would just like to state that I have done business with Alden Allen in the past, and he has been known to delay things, and he has had a habit of saying things that end up looking like they are just excuses and lies. Speaking from my own personal experience with him, as well as a few other people that I am aware of, have had a positive experience with him in regards to the end result/outcome of a business deal or situation.

He has always ended up either providing what was initially purchased or promised to his customers, and if that was not possible within a reasonable time frame then he would give his customer or individual involved a refund, to resolve the situation, maybe not always in the time frame as originally agreed upon, but he would make it right. I know that his main problem has always been that he tries to do things or make promises, without being 100% sure that he can do what he is saying or promising.

I am posting these comments because I know this individual and I know that he does not always conduct his business situations in the proper manner, as far as giving a delivery date and then not coming through on that date as promised, and instead of being straight up and honest in regards to what the delay or situation is, he just has a habit of giving excuse after excuse and that is what frustrates people and causes them to think the worst of him, and immediately think they are being ripped off or scammed.

Alden Allen just sometimes does'nt think before speaking, but after what happened to him recently and hearing the statements that were made about him, I just want people to know that he is not a scam artist, and he does'nt just go around ripping people off. I just don't want people to get the wrong idea about him after reading that report that was posted on March 04, 2008 and then something happen to him like what recently did, without hearing the positive things about him and his business transactions from people who have had a positive experience with him, and I hope I will not be the only one to reply to this report on his behalf.

He has a family that he loves and needs very much, and I know that need him as well. I just hope and pray that other people out there that have had a positive experience with him will speak out as well, and to other people that read that report, just please remember that there is always two sides to every story and situation. I guess some people just don't realize that sometimes because of what they say and do, without knowing certain facts and just assuming things in a negative way, can seriously affect other people for the rest of their life.

Thank You & God Bless.
