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!
