All I have to say is that all of this mess is a DAMN SHAME! Yall need to cut this mess out. Yall are at each other's throats because of someone elses crimes. And half of yall don't even know the real story of what took place. The other half of you do and you are hiding behind all of these weard ass screen names. What the hell. I am Pinkey Deville of Perris, CA. And I have to say that this mess has left a real bad taste in my mouth. Some of yall need to get a grip! And I won't start name calling and pull the covers from over some of you because that is not my MO! But I must say, If you want to fight somebody, don't hide behind the wall and through rocks. Step yo ass up a catch a fade! And that's as real as I can put it!(pinkeydeville@aol.com)

Theres a couple of points that everyone seems to be ignoring. The 87 year old victim in this case was on the verge of losing her home. It was in foreclosure and Countrywide (Yeah, those crooked ***) had it listed for sale at the foreclosure auction. Only the Claremont police stopped it. If they hadnt intervened then that elderly woman would be homeless right not, just like the lady in Los Angeles who is now living in her car because she trusted leroy dowd and he split with the proceeds from the sale of her house.

This message is directed at the person who calls himself/herself "The Truth." Not quite. My friend who had given dowd money was in court on the day that Trevino got his bail reduced. He didn't make any deals with the prosecution. The judge reduced his bail because the prosecution did not have proof that Trevino was involved in some other crooked transactions with Dowd and Moore.

First of all, Bishop Charles E blake needs to step down if he donsen't stand up and put Derrick Rimson in jail! You know that he is in Compton at heis new church with all of the furniture he stole from Liberty COGIC, so why isn't he in jail?
Blake must be in it with Rimson! If not then why aren't there any charges against Rimson! Bishp Dowd, needs to be put in jail also. First of all, God has never called anyone that was not working!!!!!!!! All of his discipels had jobs. The diciples worked for aliving and took care of themselves they did not have to steal from the church!. I am soooo sick of this "home made" Bishops! Most of you do not even have a church, don't own a chruch building, only have 10 members, you lie about being a prophet, you charge pieple to pray for them and for your blessed oil and so on, and so on! You wear all these funny lothes and want everyone to respect you and give you honor! Most of you are phonies and need to go to HELL! GOD HAS NEVER TOLD A HOMOSEXUAL GAY PERSON TO DO ANYTHING FOR HIM!! SO ALLOF YOU GAY BISHOPS NEED TO GO TO HELL!

I know Alex Trevino. And while I don't believe him to be innocent in any of the crimes he is accused of, I don't believe he is the ring leader of this Scam. I also know a person who is very close to Bishop Dowd. She also told me that Mr. Dowd had tried to pull the same scam on her and tried to pass bessie moore off as his wife. What I wonder is where is the money.????? The only people who they were trying to help in this situation was themselves. They made alot of money. The only interest they had was that of their own selfishness and greed. While Mr. Trevino remodeled his home and his girlfriend is driving a new car and is shopping up a storm, does anyone believe they do not have this money.??? Please. Anyone who stands behind any of these individuals is an idiot. I Know Mr. Trevino and have known him for over 11 years. I will say this, Mortgage Qwest in Glendale had no part, nor do they want any part in this. They infact fired Mr. Trevino and are planning to do their part to prusue matters futher. They have also given over all of Mr. Trevino's files to the police department. I believe justice will be served in one way or another to all parties involved.

Also to Derrick Dowd, You're an Idiot to think your uncle is innocent. I even talked to Dowds God son up in Northern California, Even he said Dowd is guilty. Mr. Dowd has come to my home with Mr. Trevino, and believe me when I tell you this buddy, I know for a fact that they are not innocent of any wrong doing. I promise you all this. JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED IN A COURT OF LAW. Fact's speak for themselves and while Mr. Trevino was found innocent of all charges, do you believe a money hungry obsessed person would not find themselves under simaliar circumstances once again. Oh how I will expose more in the months to come.

My grandmother was one of the people that brought bishop out here to start his ministry and his church I would tease her because bishop always wanted money. his church was falling apart and he had a limo. he had hundred dollar lines and thousand dollar lines and i knew he could prophisied but i thought he used it to gain money. My grandmother would be ready to kill me for calling him a crook but a little bit before she past she would always say bishop was a crook she wouldnt say why but for some reason her opinion about him did a 360, now i know why. Hate to say I told you so but I did.

I knew Pastor Rimson in Detroit in 1992. He started out being annointed, but he was always trying to get money to build a church and renting buildings all over Detroit. Then he moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan.He has given his family's name a bad name. His family is well known in the church. I saw him again in 2006 at Bishop,s Knight's church here in Detroit. He seemed different and he was talking about the church while he was a guest preacher that day. I happened to look on the internet to see what was happening with him now. I could not and still am in shock to learn what he has done. Nobody could have ever told me he did this stuff. He was married to someone else when he lived here in Detroit. California went to his head. He started out as a man of God and now he is a monster cheating people out of their money and leading people to hell. I knew he was different when I last saw him. I didn't get the same feeling that he was like he used to be. That lady said he came out to California to do just what he did. She was in Detroit with him and he asked her to go to California with him.

Leroy Dowd had another member of his so-call congregation by the name of Ada Smith in 2005. After Mrs. Smith's death he took over after he found out that her friends was trying to help and that her sister had not arrived in town as of yet. He walked in her home and took everything out with the help of some of his friends. When we attended the funeral services he announced that he had paid for her services and HOW MUCH he paid and he passed out his business card which had nothing to do with his funeral home. He is nothing but a scam artist and I did call him on it. After I wrote him a letter telling him what he had done he would not return any of my calls. He was upset that he could not get any of her belongings out of her garage. So he and his buddies in crime needs to get LIFE IN PRISON...I'm just saying...
