The records from the various addresses are confusing. It appears that at different times, he may have run businesses out of his home address or lived at his business address.
He has bragged to various employees that he rarely pays rent for either his home or business space. Once paying the initial deposit and rent, he is aware of the length of time it will take to complete eviction proceedings. He often rents only from landlords that he perceives will be unlikely to press charges or pursue eviction. Although - one particularly funny story was from a former employee who said the landlord at 2080 Ronald Regan Blvd actually moved all of his office furniture, files, etc. out to the parking lot. Apparently he spent the night trying to guard his belongings from being stolen from the parking lot while trying to move as much as possible to his next office space.
It appears he may have purchased a house at 4580 Sloan Ridge at one time. It was an extremely large house in the Sloan Ridge Estates section of the Green Summers subdivision near Cumming, GA. He often referred to it as “The Mansion”. Property taxes were unpaid and the house was ultimately foreclosed. It is unclear from Public Records whether he was the actual owner or not – or – if his actions caused the actual owner to go into foreclosure..
In mid 1982, New York State public records indicate that Joseph Zeock was convicted of “Scheme to Defraud 1st”, where he was sentenced for 1-3 years at Sing Sing Prison in Ossining NY.
In mid 1989, Washington State public records indicate that Jay Crowden was indicted for a number of charges – Theft 1, Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Perjury 1, Indecent Liberties and Guilty of Harassment. It is unclear which charges resulted in conviction or incarceration.
In late 1998, public records indicate that the third Circuit of the US Court of Appeals ruled on an unidentified charge in the US v. Joseph Raymond Zeock.
In 2002 and 2003, Virginia State public records indicate there was at least one civil judgment of $12, 048 and a separate civil judgment of $534 – in the Henrico District Court and Virginia Circuit Court.
In late 2003, Georgia State public records indicate a civil proceeding for forcible entry/detainer in Forsyth County Magistrate Court.
In early 2007, Deleware State public records indicate a “State Court Collection Enforcement” of $85, 054.20 against Joseph R Zeock.
In early 2009, Georgia State public records indicate a criminal proceeding of unknown origin in Forsyth County Criminal Court.
There seem to be many various civil or small claims court cases over the years. Many former employees have claimed to take him to small claims court to get paid – but public records are not available for that.
If you visit the various websites for being scammed or ripped off, you will find references to Jay Keldon or Joseph Zeock at various companies littering the landscape for years and years. While I cannot speak to whether he actually defrauded these individuals, I would say that the volume of complaints from all over the country lends credence to the premise.
I probably could go on and on about various stories of car repossession, evictions, court cases and more, but I think it might be interesting if you all add your personal experiences to this thread. Just the facts, please – no hearsay.
It’s fun hearing about Jay – he should write a book.
