Well looks like the real Avraham Lehrer has been exposed! Arrested at least twice and now the we can see what the “consultant” looks like. The glamorous spy that would make Austin Powers blush!
Looking Dapper Joe, or Avraham, or whatever!
Let’s break down the statement made about Joe Levin.
“His lawyer told The Daily Beast that Levin is technically a consultant, and not a private investigator, so he doesn’t need a license.”
Ok, so, his website he clearly states:
T.O.T. Services: Private Consulting Serving The Jewish Orthodox Community Worldwide
T.O.T. Private Consulting specializes in a variety of investigative services for the Orthodox Jewish community worldwide, including surveillance, matrimonial and missing persons. Our experienced team of investigators are themselves practicing Jews whose familiarity with the Orthodox lifestyle, including the language and customs, enables us to integrate into the Jewish communities and discreetly perform our investigations.
Well, three times alone in this paragraph he discusses INVESTIGATIONS. But he is not a Private Investigator.
He has self promoted himself in several media outlets claiming to be a Private Investigator.
In his own lawsuit against the MTA his lawyer claims he is a Private Investigator (Wait did he just lie to the Federal Court?)
The Daily Beast stated that two men hired a Private Investigator
He provides the services of a private investigator
He charges people to conduct surveillance (I am pretty sure that is what a private investigator does)
What type of training has Avraham Lehrer actually received? Or Joe Levin for that matter? Or any one of his other fake names?
Would you hire a person without knowing their credentials? If they were licensed?
He does not provide any information about his training so one would have to assume that there has been none? His lawyer stated that he is not a Private Investigator that he a Consultant, some type of Super Consultant you would have to assume.
We also know that everywhere you look there is a different business name, TOTPI Private Investigations, poof that was gone and then it is TOT Private Consulting, then it is TOT Services, oh and who can forget about Haredim Consulting, which is actually the name of his company.
Stay clear of this guy!
TOTPI Exposed signing off for now! We will see you soon!
TOT PI Exposed is back and here to warn you about Joe Levin, AKA Avraham Lehrer. Recently an article appeared in the Daily Beast, (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/05/15/who-ordered-the-hit-on-a-husband-refusing-to-divorce-his-wife) which outlines how Joe Levin, aka Avraham Lehrer, worked with the FBI to have two Jewish men arrested. The problem with this case, as well as the article, is that Joe Levin, aka Avraham Lehrer, aka The Hasidic Sleuth, aka “The Con Man”, claims that he is a private investigator when it suits him, and not when it doesn’t. When he wants to get paid, he puts on his “Private Investigator” hat. He has been quoted in many articles saying that he is a private investigator, as well on his own website!
Shame On You Brian Condon – Council For Joe Levin aka Avraham Lehrer
The problem is that Joe Levin doesn’t exist. Avraham Lehrer claims he is on disability and also is unlicensed. You can’t have it both ways and say, I am not a Private Investigator, but claim that you are a private investigator (even on your own website) as well as commence with the actions of a private investigator. Walk like a duck, quack like a duck and you are viewed in the law as a Private Investigator. SHAME ON YOU, Brian Condon! You are a lawyer, an officer of the Court and you are trying to pull this sham! How many documents have you signed for Joe Levin, Avraham Lehrer, etc, to get him paid! That might make some look at you as a co-conspirator. Not sure if the fake PI is worth your Law License…
According to The Daily Beast
“His lawyer told The Daily Beast that Levin is technically a consultant, and not a private investigator, so he doesn’t need a license. And the other charges on the websites, which have since been removed, are libelous, he said.”
Your statements alone are libelous, false and leading you down a path of legal problems! The problem is that the article clearly states: “In July 2016, an Israeli rabbi met with a private investigator specializing in Orthodox communities.” Hmm.. That is sort of tough to get around! So according to his lawyer and the FBI, two rabbi’s contact a “CONSULTANT”. What type of consultant did they think they were hiring, I mean the article said “Private Investigator”, and his lawyer just verified that he is not licensed. We are to believe that consultants do surveillance? I think not, and looks like Mr. Wonderful “Joe Levin” is an going to be asked some REALLY tough questions in the future.
Joe Levin, charges $250 an hour and needs 100 hours to conduct surveillance. Sounds like a consultant to me! #sarcasm
This guy is a joke! The thing that these two did wrong was to hire a loser like Joe Levin! The greatest part is, anyone can say that Joe Levin is a loser or anything else, because HE DOESN’T EXIST! It is a FAKE name!
If anyone releases that information again, “I have been authorized to bring appropriate legal action,” Condon wrote.
Brian Condon, not sure where you got your law degree, but I don’t know how you take legal action when your client “Joe Levin” as you refer to him, doesn’t exist. You should have learned that at New York Law School. His company TOTPI Private Consulting doesn’t exist either! How do you take legal action for a party that does not exist, unless you are conspiring with him? The Ethics Board and the Bar Association would love to hear that a lawyer takes legal action for a party under a False Name and a False Business. It is called due diligence, Mr Condon. Technically ANYONE can say anything they want about Joe Levin, because unless you have a client with the real name JOE LEVIN, you can’t defend a JOE LEVIN in court, silly Rabbit! I think it is so cute when lawyers bolster themselves and actually compromise themselves in the interim.
But before he hung up, Levin chuckled about the website set up to take him down.
It is sad that The Daily Beast doesn’t realize that they are right on edge of a great story! How a person using a fake name, who is unlicensed, was working with the Federal Government. That is a GREAT STORY!!!!
And just a note to the readers of TOTPIEXPOSED.com, any documents posted on this website have been received by Public Record. Posting of Public Records is not liable, because you cannot say something is liable just because you don’t like it. For it to be liable, it has to be UNTRUE, which there is nothing untrue, but the TRUTH DOES HURT SOMETIMES!
TOTPI Private Consulting is a one man illusion. It is a website, photoshop, stock images and a unlicensed scammer, name Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin. In today’s post we are going to break down the illusion of TOTPI Private Consulting.
Let’s start with the command center illusion.
TOTPI Private Consulting Headquarters
A simple search of this image shows that it is for sale as a stock image, which means that you can buy the image and use it on your website.
This is actually an image of the new control room for the subway in Milan Italy.
TOTPI Aviation Unit – Search and Rescue
TOTPI Private Consulting has a great aviation unit, well, not really.
The image is not a TOTPI Helicopter. It is a helicopter is actually operated by an officer from Seagate Police Department. Not sure if Seagate Police Department is aware that their resources are portrayed as the services of TOTPI Private Consulting, but they will be asked how they provide the services for TOTPI.
TOTPI HEADQUARTERS EXPOSED
TOTPI Headquarters is in Wesley Hills, New York. It was unclear how this could be the Headquarters because there is no heliport and it looks like a single family house. The local authorities have been notified about TOTPI Private Consulting and are looking into an unlicensed business running out of a residential home.
It is a great illusion that has been created but the fact is that there is no great headquarters. The one man show of Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin is simply a GREAT ILLUSION.
The Criminal Past of Lehrer aka Joe Levin
Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin has a serious criminal past. Arrests by the MTA Police and Nassau County are the ones that shine the brightest!
We have had a source that wishes to remain anonymous that has claimed as early as last week that they were taken advantage of for over $4,000. Innocent people that have been defrauded.
TOTPI Private Consulting Does Not Exist As A Legal Business
Avraham Lehrer was actually fired by his own attorney! In documents obtained by TOTPI Exposed, Avraham Lehrer who likes to hide behind the name Joe Levin, possibly because is defrauding the government claiming he is disabled, was in the process of suing a Martial Arts Company in Kings County (Brooklyn, NY). On September 29th, 2011, his attorney filed paperwork “Permitting the Law Offices of Alvin M. Bernstone, LLP, to withdraw as attorney of record for the plaintiff, AVRAHAM LEHRER”.
What attorney fires their client? Why would that ever happen?
Avraham Lehrer (Joe Levin) of TOTPI Private Consulting Was Fired By His Attorney
The paperwork continues to discuss the reasons why.
“On the grounds that plaintiff, AVRAHAM LEHRER has not been participating in the prosecution of this action; that there are differences between the attorneys and the client and an impasse has been reached regarding the manner in which this case should proceed;”
Ok, seems like a difference of opinion. Seems strange that a person that claims to to investigate other people has not been participating in his own lawsuit. Glad I did not hire him! If he is not going to be involved in his own lawsuit, how we he handle your issues, right?
But then it becomes a little clearer! The document continues:
“and that the plaintiff, AVRAHAM LEHRER has been verbally abusive to members and staff at The Law Offices of Alvin M. Bernstone, LLP;”
Verbally abusive to his own attorney’s staff that is helping him? Ouch! This is concerning. I wonder what this pillar of society would have said in order to have his attorney fire him?
Then the document contained this:
“Permitting and allowing the Law Offices of Alvin M. Bernstone, to have a charging lien on any recovery in this matter and to direct any incoming attorney to pay the reasonable expenses incurred to date”
This means that the law firm spent their own money out of pocket to move forward in this case and that whenever Avraham Lehrer hires a new attorney, the new attorney to get paid back in the event of a successful settlement of the case. The attorney was willing to walk away with money out of pocket, just to get away from this guy!
We are not sure where Avraham Lehrer received any of his experience to even conduct any type of investigations. He was operating AR Dental Supplies in 2010 and was being sued by his suppliers, Manufactures and Traders Trust Company. You can read the lawsuit here: AR-DENTAL-SUPPLY-AVRAHAM-LEHRER . Yes this is the real paperwork, as is all of the documents posted on this website. Joe Levin or Avraham Lehrer (let’s just call him the “Conman” for further purposes here). These have all been obtained through online searches and publicly available means.
But it has come to light that Avraham Lehrer was arrested, by the MTA Police in 2010. According to documents obtained, on December 14, 2010 ,he went to the Long Island Railroad train yard at 10th Avenue in Manhattan, New York to look investigate an employee of the MTA. Not only was he not successful he got himself arrested for Criminal Trespass in the 3rd Degree by the MTA Police.
He plead guilty to the charges and then filed a lawsuit against the MTA Police. According to his lawsuit, he was humiliated by being arrested and having a dog sniff him, because they views his actions as suspicious and thought that he might be there to do harm to someone.
Sources that are familiar with the case said that he was pleading and crying at the scene and through the process. He was detained for 36 hours, and the sources said he was acting like “a REAL CRYBABY JERK!”. The problem is that the MTA Police did not charge him correctly. They should have charged with not having a private investigators license!
Read the portion of the Joe Levin lawsuit here:
The Real Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin Photo
As reported earlier, Avraham Lehrer was arrested on another occasion as well. A year later Avraham Lehrer was arrested again, this time in Nassau County for BRIBERY. You can read more about the story here: Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin Arrested For Bribery
Beware of Joe Levin
BEWARE OF JOE LEVIN, AVRAHAM LEHRER, AND TOT PI CONSULTING! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
TOTPI Exposed uncovered a document that shows that he was claiming disability and had not worked since 2006. The form was completed by a doctor in Monroe, New York on 11/7/2014. He claimed he first saw Avraham Lehrer on 2/17/14 and the last visit was on 11/7/14. The reasons for the disability included Reflex sympathetic dystrophy, chronic nerve pain and back pain.
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) facts.Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is characterized by a group of symptoms including pain (often “burning” type), tenderness, and swelling of an extremity associated with varying degrees of sweating, warmth and/or coolness, flushing, discoloration, and shiny skin.
It also included that the conditions have not improved.
This form was completed for Guardian Life Insurance to request relief in reference to the premiums. This document was also provided as part of a lawsuit and is deemed to be of public record and anyone now access this document. Once this document was entered into the public domain by Avraham Lehrer, any privacy/HIPPA concerns regarding it’s publication were negated.
Please Read The Avraham Lehrer Disability Form For Guardian Life Insurance
The question is not, does Avraham Lehrer have these ailments or not. The problem is that he is working and has been for years based on his own admissions.
A New York Times article, interviewed our Hasidic Super Spy, in 2011. Where gives a full interview about being a private investigator. We also know from his arrest that Joe Levin is actually Avraham Lehrer. We now know that Avraham Lehrer is claiming to be disabled. Is he receiving disability as well as working? If so, that is a crime and insurance fraud.
Here is a picture of him from the 2011, New York Times article:
Avraham Lehrer (aka Joe Levin) Working While Collecting Disability Benefits?
So, our crime fighting super sleuth is not working since 2006? This is interesting.
Based on many people that we have spoken to, Joe Levin (Avraham Lehrer) have taken their money, when he was not supposed to be working and possibly collecting disability benefits.
Now form is public record and there is no expectation of privacy. Certain information was redacted, even more than the public record redacted, so there is no question that it is able to be published.
Let us know your thoughts on how the Hasidic Super Sleuth is so good that he can work investigations without a license and on disability!
Joe Levin, the so-called founder of TOT PI, operates the unlicensed private investigation company that claims to work within the Orthodox Jewish Community. The actual company name is Haredim Consulting Inc. TOT PI has been scamming the community by having them hire him to do private investigation work, yet he is unlicensed (a felony in the State of New York), and ripping people off for over a dozen years.
It is time to expose this man for who he really is! His real name is actually Avraham Lehrer, he changed his name because of the bad press that relates to his arrest.
Avraham Lehrer Arrested By Nassau County Police
The incident arose when he was trying to help put a Kosher Supermarket out of business (real friend to the community here!). The store was called Stop Delight in Great Neck, NY. He tried to get an employee to download the whole computer system and was going to deliver it to the party that paid him.
He lied and called the store claiming to be a person that works for the department of social services, and wanted to speak to a certain employee of the grocery store, the employees name was never disclosed. Joe Levin was able to get her outside by lying and claiming he had information regarding their child’s teacher. This is where he offered to pay, and tried to bribe her to sabotage the Kosher business that employed her. The person was an honest worker, unlike Joe Levin, so the employee of the grocery store made sure to contact the owner.
She then agreed to work with the Nassau County Police department to nab Joe Levin. She then agreed to meet him at a Starbucks for cash, and in return she would hand over the business records from the grocery store. The exchange never took place because he intercepted her car and eluded the detectives waiting for him. The problem was the cops were looking for Joe Levin, and not Avraham Lehrer, this is his real name. He had been working under the alias Joe Levin and it was throwing everyone for a loop as Joe Levin didn’t exist. He had been running the T.O.T. Private Investigation company with the name Joe Levin as well. They found more about him in the New York Times article that made him seem like a great guy, with amazing skills, but the truth is that he’s a con-artist that just wants your money.
Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin Charged With Felonies
Avraham Lehrer (aka: Joe Levin) was charged with two counts of computer trespass, and two counts committing a bribe in connection to the kosher grocery store in Great Neck.
The attorney for Stop Delight, Rosen, said that he was hired to obtain their business records, list of clients, list of vendors, copies of invoices, statements sent to customers, statements received from vendors, and the store’s computer hard drive that contained all the private, and personal information of the store, and employees in it. Rosen was unable to say why they wanted to obtain it, and what they planned to do with the information. Their next step was to find out who hired Joe Levin, or as you know now Avraham Lehrer, and hold them accountable.
This is a Jew that is willing to put another Jew and all of his employees and their families, completely out of business. This is PREDATOR of the Jewish Community.
The name change worked for a while because they were looking for him under the wrong name, he tends to change his name the second he screws over the wrong person, or has a run in with the law. People have trusted his company TOTPI and have paid Avraham Lehrer, aka Joe Levin, hundreds of thousands of dollars; they have got nothing but their money taken from them. He has worked in Brooklyn, as well as Monsey, and other Jewish communities like Israel.
Beware of Joe Levin and TOT PI
It has been reported that he takes money from the person that hired him and then tries to extort money from the target as well. He likes to work both sides to make as much money as possible.
He will take your money and does produce little results. Be aware of TOTPI, and Joe Levin as his false information may be enough to trick you like it has many other people!
The Joe Levin Investigator that claims to be the Kosher Spy is an unlicensed scam artist. BEWARE!
We looked a little further and this a Corporation that has been attached to TOT PI , or Avraham Lehrer, aka Joe Levin (or whatever he is calling himself today! It is hard to keep up!)
Notice that his website makes no mention of this corporation, which is required. So why is he hiding it?
Here the company information of Haredim Consulting Inc.:

As we discussed previously, Joe Levin or Avraham Lehrer states that he has been the private investigation business since about 2004, yet the corporation only was formed in 2012? He was interviewed by media outlets in 2011, and they never even checked to see if he was licensed!
A further check revealed Haredim is not registered as a Private Investigation Service or licensed to perform any actions involving private investigations.
If he can fool the, he can fool you!
One of the reasons that Avraham Lehrer aka: Joe Levin, does not have license is that the little thing called an arrest could have got in the way. We will discuss that arrest in our next post!
The question that is asked is, who is behind TOTPI?
Well let’s break that down. There is no TOTPI Corporation that is listed in New York State. There is, however, a TOT Consulting, Inc.
Actually, Private Investigators, are required to give the name of their company and licensing information, if they do not, like TOT PI Consulting Service, then that should be a HUGE RED FLAG! So we dig…..
The official name of the business does not appear on the website, but if you dig a little there is an article from 2011, which states that Joe Levin started his business 12 years ago. So doing some simple math it seems as though Joe Levin started TOTPI in around 2004 (approximately). The reason that the word approximately is used is because there were no business records that could be found that shows an actual business that represented what we were searching. We understand that Joe Levin is not actually Joe Levin, but actually Avraham Lehrer. Hopefully he does not invent a few new names to continue to throw everyone off! Oh, he did! We will get into that shortly!
A search of New York State’s Business License, did reveal something interesting.

Did you noticed something interesting there? YES! The corporation was created in 2015! So, does that mean that he was operating illegally since there was never a corporation? Well the type of work that is being advertised does require a Private Investigator’s license. It has already been established that he Joe Levin does not have a Private Investigator’s license nor does TOT Consulting, nor does Avraham Lehrer.
So, the address is in Staten Island, Let’s take a look at the Corporate Office!
Where the heck is the helipad? Where are the choppers? Where is the Search and Rescue k-9 Teams? I don’t see the undercover vehicles, maybe because they are so uncover, they are invisible!
TOTPI has been around for a while. When people need help they sometimes turn to a Private Investigator for help. Unsuspecting people have turned to TOTPI and Joe Levin (which is not his real name).
Joe Levin actually goes by the name of Avraham Lehrer and does not have a private investigators license like he claims. He rips people off by claiming to have search and rescue helicopters, undercover vehicles, K-9 units, and more and can use these resources with his investigation services but he is UNLICENSED and just takes their money, in some cases from both parties.
Yes! Taking money from both sides! People have reported that they have hired him to investigate someone, only to find out that he approached the party that he was hired to investigate and demand money from them not to expose them to the original party.
So let’s map this out.
TOTPI Joe Levin Playbook
First Reported Scenario:
Person 1 – Goes to Joe Levin and hire him to investigate Person 2 and pays him money.
Joe Levin – Starts to poke around and hopes he finds something – or simply makes something up based on the original information from Person 1.
Person 2 – Joe Levin approaches Person 2 and demands money so that he does not give the information back to Person 1.
He takes money from both Person 1 and Person 2 and never delivers anything.
If you go to his Facebook https://www.facebook.com/joe.levin.77 you will see phony pictures, and posts where he falsely advertises his investigating services. He rips people off and doesn’t come up with any solutions and takes credit for closing major cases.
Joe Levin Quotes
In an interview he once said:
His organization’s mission is encoded in the name T.O.T., an acronym for the Yiddish expression “Tuchis afn tish.”
“It means ‘Put your tuchis on the table,’ ” “In other words, ‘Show me the proof.’ And that’s what I do. I bring my proof to the people.”
So let’s do this:
“Put his tuchis on the table”
“Show him the proof!”
“Bring the proof to the people”
Since he has been exposed several people have come forward to report that they have been victims as well. The numbers total several hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If you are a victim, you are encouraged to report your experience to Law Enforcement or share your story, so that others will not be victimized.
We will continue to be the voice of the people and expose who TOTPI is, who Joe Levin is, who Avraham Lehrer is, and the victim’s story, so that nobody will be his next victim.
