Is he back?

Seems just like his MO... Been about 6 months since anyone has said anything, then out of the blue, I get an email:

 

I think he is at it again. This is so frustrating. I think he is just a kleptomaniac. If he knows you, lock up everything or he will circle around when you are not looking. If anyone knows his latest whereabouts, please post.

 

So is he out there ripping people off? Let us know!

He Just Can't Stay Out Of Trouble

You would think Darien would try and stay out of trouble..... Apparently he's violated some MORE traffic laws.

Update on Darien!

This was posted in a facebook group this morning:

 

UPDATE ON DARIEN SMALL from court on Friday 11/4/11 at the 2 PM:

He pleaded guilty on multiple charges of theft and fraud. Next date: Sentencing on January 27th at 2 PM – victim statements can be made at that time. He needs to come up w/ the full $8300 to avoid jail and get 3 years probation OR if he comes w/ a partial payment he will receive up to 2 years in jail OR if he’s a no show a warrant will be put out for his arrest at back to back 8 year sentences (16 years). The judge was very firm with him regarding the idea that he MUST be there- on time – in the correct courtroom AND that the judge would take no excuse other than him being incarcerated or admitted to a hospital bed in a legitimate hospital (not an ER trip, etc.)

New E-mail Addresses and Company Name - Images Tales

Looks like Darien is using a new company name called Images Tales just another scam! I honestly can't believe he is doing this while he is AWAITING TRIAL!
 
  • images.tales@gmail.com - his 'business' email
  • small.darien@gmail.com - his personal
  • small.audrey@gmail.com - probably an email he set up for his wife, so he could send email from it to pretend to be her, it could also be her real email, but given the way darien sets up so many gmail accounts, I'm sure this is a fake account he set up!

 

Sounds like he has two new aliases too:

  • Alex Simmons
  • Dare Simmons
     

 

Also, please do no post Darien's private information on here (DL numbers, SSN, etc) as much as I think the dude is a piece of trash, it's not necessary (not to mention I already have it!).

If you have personal information about Darien, please fee free to use the "Contact" form and send me an email. I do not give it out to anyone except the authorities.

Also, to date, it seems as if his wife is not involved with his dealings, I can't speak for his children, but please don't drag them into this unless you have concrete evidence they are involved.

Upcoming Court Dates

Looks like the next three months will be fun for Mr. Darien Small... I hope at some point justice is served. This guy has literally ripped off at least $200,000 and pretty much been untouched.

Trial Postponed? Next Court Date 5/26 (Violation of Probation)

HWYS 05/06/2011 POSTPONEMENT FORM FILED; HICKS (MD RULE 4-271) WAIVED

I'm by no means a legal expert but doing a little searching, it would appear Darien Small and Nancy Aram filed for a postponement of the trial and waived Hick's. What Hick's you might ask? Well so did I:

"Commonly referred to in Maryland as "Hick's Rule," a defendant's right to a speedy trial guarantees that the court set a trial date no later than 180 days after the arraignment or after the first time the defendant's attorney enters an appearance.

By waiving that rule the defendant is allowing the trial to start latter."

Based off this, it would appear Darien is going to be free for a while.

He's back in court on 5/26 for violation of his probation terms set forth in another fraud case.

Darien still ripping people off.. while he awaits court!

Got an email from a user saying Darien is STILL ripping people off, even while he awaits trail on multiple counts of fraud? I simply cannot understand this guy!

"Darien Small responded to my solicitation on Craig's List for a room in SW Balt.  He was "Alex".  I met him at a rowhouse on Wilkens Ave.  I gave him $425 for May rent and $400 deposit.  He disappeared.  When I came to the house, the locks had been changed.

Small represented himself as the new owner of this property.  Small might be in collusion with the owner of this property, Jack McCabe, P.O. Box 32, Arnold, MD 21012  410-209-7520."

Darien Goes To Court

Tomorrow, it looks like Darien is in court on several of the felony charges. If any of you attend in person, I'd love to hear what happens!
