Joe Levin is Avraham Lehrer

It has been established that Avraham Lehrer is Joe Levin, lying about his name to try to shield himself from the fact that he was claiming disability.  You can read the story here: Avraham Lehrer On Disability But Working As An Unlicensed Private Investigator?

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!

Avraham Lehrer aka Joe Levin Arrested For Bribery

Beware of Joe Levin and TOTPI

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.

You can read the whole story here:

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!

TOT PI Is Actually Haredim Consulting Inc

TOT PI Avraham Lehrer

It is important that people know who they are dealing with when they turn over their money and open their personal lives to a Predator of the Jewish Community such as Joe Levin (real name: Avraham Lehrer) and TOT PI.

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.:

DOS ID # 4335456
Initial DOS Filing Date December 12, 2012

Current Company Status ACTIVE

Company Address Information

TOT PI Avraham Lehrer
Beware of TOT PI

Someone doesn’t want to be attached to this company at all:

Contact Information

Telephone n/a
Email n/a

Additional Information

Estimated Revenue no information
Employees no information
Brands no information

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!

Who Is Behind TOTPI Consulting Inc

TOT PI Avraham Lehrer

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.

Selected Entity Name: T.O.T. CONSULTING INC

Selected Entity Status Information

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!

We will start to dive into more shortly!  Like who is Haredim Consulting, Inc.?  Stay tuned, Stay Informed, Stay Away from Joe Levin and TOTPI!


Meet The Real Joe Levin and TOTPI

TOTPI Joe Levin Unlicensed

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 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.
