Dear Ms. O’Malley,
October 01, 2013
I have found that Mr. Leonard Stephens owner of OUR TV station in OAKLAND is not licensed as a legitimate business registered neither in the County of Alameda nor in the State of California.
It’s unfortunate that I have to write this letter, more so, of my own in meeting con-artists in the likes of a Mr. Leonard Stephens and Mr. Andre Alporter technical assistant. Mr. Stephens presented himself as a legitimate business man, licensed to do business in the State of California and the County of Alameda, CA with his d.b.a OUR TV; 10700 MacArthur Blvd; Foothill Square #4E; Oakland, CA 94605; and Andre Alporter’s address: 9316 MacArthur Blvd #6; Oakland, CA.
Under this guise, Mr. Stephens persuaded me, in his con that his business would assist me in the development and broadcasting of a television production which I am producing, called the West Oakland Stories 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s Project (WOS). A contract was signed with Mr. Stephens as the executive of d.b.a, OUR TV (terminated by the Secretary of State of California).
There is a second party involved in this matter. It is Mr. Stephens’s video camera/editor production assistant, André Alporter, who coned me to believe that he no longer was working for OUR TV. To prove his point he removed all of his editing equipment from OUR TV facilities to his apartment and from April to August 2013, we completed the editing of West Oakland Stories Project in his apartment. Now, Mr. Stephens and Mr. Alporter are stating by email that OUR TV is the producer of the WOS and that they now own my project. Rip off.
Mr. Stephens, thus far has gotten away with his con of theft through deception.
Figuring his con to be white collar and given to lengthy and expensive litigation process, and the search for his whereabouts to serve him, he thinks he has a pretty full proof con game.
The businessmen, owners of Oakland’s “OUR TV” Station, Mr. Leonard Stephens and Mr. Andre They lost the court battle and still has not given all the tape/film footage/files up to this day. There is a Bench Warrant out for them but the police will not serve the warrant. They are a classic example of too many of our own business people’s negative attitude with our people.
Just describing the trials and tribulations that you go through producing something positive as the West Oakland Stories film, you win your case in the courts and the Slave System still does not carry out its law. It just keeps you spending your money. But you don’t let that stop you.
