Another day, another scammer gets busted in Atlanta!
Sadly, my city has become a breeding ground for frauds and fakers and this story is no exception.
The man above goes by the names Demetrius McCollum, Trey Colston, Trey Watkins, Trey McCain and Treyvone Levette and he was recently arrested after defrauding several women across the country out of nearly a million dollars!!
Demetrius McCollum (his government name) faces several charges after he reportedly scammed at least 30 victims out of their hard earned dough by convincing them that he had access to bid on government vehicles and properties.
An investigation revealed that once McCollum gained the women’s trust and had money in hand, he would make excuses for why the vehicle or land deed was never delivered and/or cut off communications after he’d ran off with the dough!

The owner of a dry cleaning business in Southwest Atlanta is now officially on blast after being caught in a race-fueled rant on camera.
The video was captured by Andy Foster, who suffered the verbal abuse in front of his 10 year old son, who was riding along with him as he picked up his cleaning. Foster was so shocked by the owner’s behavior that he pressed play on his cell phone.
The fiery exchange occurred at the Ben Hill Custom Cleaners on Fairburn Road in Atlanta and in the video, the store’s owner, Amin Chaudry, can be clearly heard spewing racist rants.
Foster can be heard in the vid, stating ‘You shouldn’t be prejudiced in Black neighborhoods.” And the store owner responds, “you *expletive* are more racist than anybody!”
At one point, when Chaudry is told that he’s on video, he slams the store’s drive-thru window shut while yelling… “Send it to Obama!”
