This dude has more aliases than you can shake a stick at. And more lies too! He’s had more phone numbers than you can shake a stick at too.
The last one is the only one that is actually working now…. I am sure he will change the number or disconnect it at some point. I am about to lay out a timeline of how this piece of trash scam artist screwed me, and many other people, over.
Oct 15, 2020 – I was hired as the Director of Communications & Media for the TAAL
Oct 16, 2020 – Truman Carey was hired as the GM of the West Texas Vipers
Nov 4, 2020 – We hold the official press conference, which was a complete disaster
Nov 9, 2020 – Jim Terry, Arena Football veteran of 20 years and podcaster calls me and tells me that there is no contract to play in any arena that we have talked about in any town.
Nov 9, 2020 – I reach out to Ken directly to ask about these accusations. He gives me a bunch of runarounds about how this guy starts trouble with all leagues, etc, but never answers any questions directly. I finally get him to answer, is the league on solid financial footing. He assures me that it is.
Nov 30, 2020 – Payday.
- Nothing in the bank when I got up.
- I waited a few hours, and hit him up.
- He says that the “advisory board” (more on that shortly) sent it on SATURDAY! Obviously, banks aren’t open on Saturday.
- He offers to pay me through Zelle, so I setup an account and gave him the info.
- He said he will pay me on venmo. I gave him my info
- He asks for the login information for the Instagram and Twitter accounts I setup for the Ft Worth Blaze. I didn’t send them.
Dec 1, 2020 – I woke up this morning (Dec 1, 2020) to find I had been removed as an admin on:
- TAAL Facebook Page
- Ft Worth Blaze Facebook Page
- Ft Worth Blaze Website
- And BLOCKED from his “Kenneth Bowens” and “Dewayne Bowens” accounts
- I reached out to Truman Carey to see if he was having the same issue. Not surprisingly, he was given the same BS about Zelle, Venmo, etc. Not to mention all the coaches who were hired in Abilene for the West Texas Vipers team who didn’t get paid either.
- I reached out to every player he has allegedly “signed” to play for the Blaze to let them know what kind of person this guy is.
He has screwed me over for over $3k, not to mention what he owes Truman Carey and the coaches from West Texas.
I have tagged all the players so that they can see what kind of person this guy is.
