Remind Me Never to Rent a Place to @AlohaArleen

Well I guess the continuing saga that I blogged about here about @AlohaArleen continues.

I broke the story wide open here: Where’s the Aloha… Arleen Pt. I

I then followed this up with a Big Island Resident that was scammed by @AlohaArleen here:  Where’s the Aloha… Arleen Pt. II

The complaints seem to be coming in one by one… I understand those folks that don’t want to come forward with their stories as it does suck to get scammed by someone that you did trust.

Trust is something that is key in many relationships… you mess that up… your screwed.

Now it looks like she is also someone that doesn’t care to much about rental contracts or the way she lives in general.

Where’s the Aloha… Arleen?

There is no malicious intent with this post.  I have a blog and have been asked to help some folks to “out” someone who seems to be scamming quite a few people these days.  It’s not just one or two people… it really seems like a lot of folks.

I hope those folks that are friends with both of us… Know me well enough to know that I don’t put up with much BS.  Online scammers, make it difficult for people who do try to make legitimate business online that much more difficult to do.

You may have seen her on TV, you may have seen her in person, and if you’re on Twitter… there is no way that you can miss her with 80,000+ followers.

  11. How well does anyone know @alohaarleen? She seems popular on twitter?1:13 PM Sep 8th from web

Now your probably thinking… “Damon… why are you even meddling in this ladies life”…

Well the problem is… She burned one of my friends… Well known comedian Andy Bumatai for what I understand is close to about $4,000.

His official Statement is as follows:

  1. Andy BumataiAndyBumatai My official stance will be “She misrepresented herself and her ability to perform agreed upon promotions.

Mr. Knowlton is just now putting things on twitter to piece this case together. It’s my understanding that Mr. Bumatai has sought the advice of a Lawyer in his attempts to recoup his money.

I’ve never met AlohaArleen myself. She has always seemed rather nice and cordial to me. However, I have met others in real life now that have warned me long before today… that she was someone to be careful of.

Backstage at Tonights Andy Bumatai Show

If you missed tonights Andy Bumatai show, it was one of the better ones that I have seen in a long time.

It featured local news anchors Diane Ako, Ron Mizutani and Dan Meisenzahl.

Bumatai is a big time fan of Twitter. His twitter address is @Andy_Bumatai and he actually answered a few twitter questions on his show tonight. I didn’t send any in… but I sure thought about it.

After the show I twitted him that it was a great show and he replied with a photo album of the show. It’s a great little photo album and it gives you a great insight to the making of the show.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from the album:

You can check out the Andy Bumatai Show website, but if you want a direct link to tonights pictures, you can view them here.

Andy Bumatai is hilarious and if you haven’t checked out his show, I recommend you do.
