Arie Abekasis is the owner of Diditan Group luxury home builder in Los Angeles and Arie Abekasis is founder of Diditan Financial, as mortgage company that offers home loans, mortgage refinance, short sales and home loan modifications. 

First, I want to make it very clear that I was employed as a freelance SEO and web developer for Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial, and did some random work, for free, for Diditan Group home builders. I was never a customer. However, the way Arie Abekasis treated me and the lies he tells about Diditan Financial is a clear reflection of how he does business, how the public is in danger of falling prey to his dishonesty, and therefore as a consumer and member of the Los Angeles public, I feel it is my duty to warn people who may seek Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial for a home loan, and warn people who are considering working with Arie Abekasis. [continued below]....


This is a copy-and-paste from my e-mail showing proof that Arie Abekasis does not value people, especially people who work for him and those who are not full-time. It also shows he admits to having an unstable "daisy chain business" and it is so bad he won't pay his people on time. Is this someone you would want to get a home loan from, or work for? If you want to see the original e-mail in its raw form, contact me and I will send it to you:

Hi Telma,
I am writing to let you know that the payment due on October 1, 2016 was not received. Please send a check for $550.00 ($500 for the services performed as outlined on the invoice, and $50 for the late fee) to the following address, ASAP. Thank you. <>

You keep your demanding language for your self, If you don't like it you can quit, we are all running on a daisy chain in business and if you don't understand it you should go work a full time job and I am sure you will get paid like a clock.
Sometimes business is short and if it gets delays is because it carries from others, next time you will approach us this way I will simply move on.

Thanks & Rgds

What This E-mail Says About Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial. 
First, I should add in what was almost a year I worked on the Diditan Financial website for Arie Abekasis, he only paid me on time twice. He ignored my constant e-mails stressing that it was important for me to be paid on time, and as I was only charging him $500 a month for something I normally get paid triple for, one would think he would comply. The reason I did this work for cheap was because he said he was financially strapped, and at first he struck me as a good person. Lesson learned. So, here you see that my late payment notification e-mail is direct, straightforward, and professional. You can see by the ridiculous response by Arie Abekasis, that the following hold true:
  • Being paid on time is demanding
  • The "if you don't like it, you can quit" is a subtle way to say "I will fire you if you demand to get paid on time" (I fired him, by the way)
  • He admits to running a daisy chain business, which is frightening considering it is for home loans in Los Angeles
  • He thinks only people with full-time jobs deserve to get paid on time (Google me, I hold a full-time executive position for a digital marketing agency...I just do off jobs on the side because it is fun)
  • He admits his "business is short" and that others cause delays in his business. This shows it is not stable or being run efficiently to best serve clients who go to Arie Abekasis for a home loan. 

Other Things to Say About Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial:

  • He is not licensed, insured or bonded
  • Diditan Financial says they are an in-house company of agents, finance experts and builders. This is a lie. He simply sends people out to realtors he knows and collects referral fee checks (and I bet he expects to be paid on time)
  • He probably doesn't value his customers. Think about it, most people who need to refinance their home loan or get a short sale do so because they are strapped for cash, and losing your job is the number one reason why people face losing their homes. I bet lots of people who do freelance work or part-time work are his ideal customers because they likely need a home loan refinance or short sale more than someone well-to-do with a full time job. Rather hypocritical. 

Arie Abekasis still never fully paid me what he owed. He made a direct deposit into my account that was $50 short, and two weeks past due. His failure to pay me on time, as par our working agreement, made my life a living hell as I had a new financial obligation in which another person was relying on me for help. His poor business ethics hurt others. Had he told me from the start that he would not be able to pay me on time, I wouldn't have worked with him. It is a bad sign. But he gave me every impression it was fine, and made working with him a pain in the a*s. At the end of the day Arie Abekasis is nothing but a salesman who knows how to charm people and manipulate them. I learned a lesson in dealing with him. i will never help another person again by giving them a cheap rate, no matter how great they seem. Arie Abekasis destroyed my trust in others. I also feel bad for the people going forward who will work with him, and any poor client who gets suckered in to his "daisy chain business" that is oh so delicate things fall apart and money is short.

#1 Author of original report

The Author wants you to Disregard this Report

AUTHOR: - ()

Dear readers,


I ask that you disregard this report I wrote for two reasons.


Reason one: Recent evidence revealed to me shows that my report of Diditan Financial not having their own finance and 

real estate personnel is false. Therefore I wrote this without full clarity and I wrote it not being entirely informed of their operations.


Reason two: As human beings, we have bad days, and as a result we can speak rashly and bullishly. We have all done it, because we are all human. After giving the situation further thought, a practical human being should not judge a business because someone had one bad day and expressed themselves in an unfavorable way. Therefore, I ask that you disregard it. Thank you.
