Seriously Beware of Collectibles with Causes / Works of Life

30 Jan

Somebody claiming to be Cameron Arballo from Works of Life called both my wife’s and sister’s places of employment and left threatening messages saying that he knows where she/we/I live, amongst other creepy things.

I’ve never said anything about Mr Arballo. I’d only heard of him in comments other people left in response to the 2+ year old blog post about my less than smooth experience with Works of Life / Collectibles with Causes. There you’ll find other peoples’ tales and accusations, not mine. My story summarizes sketchy communication problems and delays I dealt with. Nothing more.

I guess the moral of the story is, if you don’t have a great experience with one of Cameron’s many charities, don’t say anything about it or he (or somebody claiming to be him) will threaten your family.

EDIT:
If you’ve had bad dealings with him or his charity, this guy is looking for evidence and would appreciate your help.

    Can I have a contact number?

      I don’t make a habit of giving out anybody’s contact info, even when it belongs to people harassing me, but allegedly Cameron’s is publicly available.

      I’d never heard of this dude Cameron until somebody mentioned him in a comment thread on this site two years ago. *I hadn’t thought of him since*, until he started menacing me and my family two days ago. I used to have neither opinion of nor knowledge of the guy; my limited recent exposure to him makes me long for those days.

    If you want information about Cameron Arballo(Works of Life). He is under investigation right now by the FBI and Fresno PD. Give me contact information and I will forward copies to you. You would be surprised to know Camerons name is no where to be found but he is the only one on all bank accounts. His alias is the secretary and treasurer. His puppet Tim Yarbrough(President) left because of the investigation. Im told it is in the prosecution phase by the FBI.

      Thanks, but no. The less I have to do with this guy and his organizations, the better. …But thank you!

      There’s a guy in TN going after him Contact him with your story, if you want.
