Action News Troubleshooters investigate a minister and businessman apparently hiding violent criminal history

Monday, November 25, 2019 10:24PM
COATESVILLE, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A minister and businessman with his own YouTube channel claims his mission is to help the poor help themselves, but our Troubleshooters investigation reveals a man apparently hiding in plain sight from his violent, criminal history.

The investigation was prompted by complaints about a local man's business but turned into something far more disturbing, opening up questions about the safety of our families.

Minister Alif Allah has a high profile social media presence promoting his company, Family Business Credit.

Minister Allah claims his business helps set up companies and charities for a fee.

The minister first got on our radar when we were contacted by two customers of Family Business Credit.

"He stood out because he said that, through his program, he could help nonprofits who were starting up just like myself, he could help them attain business credit," said Darryl Catay with The Firmament Foundation.

Joe Watkins added, "He seemed very professional. He had been in the nonprofit business for the last 10 plus years."

But both customers told the Troubleshooters they paid the minister and were unhappy with his results.

"The service was $2,500," said Watkins.

"I trusted him and trusted his word," said Catay.

We first went to Minister Allah for answers about his customers.

Nydia Han asked, "We talked to two of your customers who say they did not get what they paid for."

"I'm just behind on work. That is all that is," Minister Allah answered.

But this would not be the only time we tried to talk to the minister.

And the reason that brings us back raises disturbing questions.

Our investigation reveals Family Business Credit is registered to Arthur Commenger, aka Minister Alif Allah.

And it turns out, Arthur Commenger is a convicted sex offender.

Convicted sex offenders in Pennsylvania are required to register their name and correct address on the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law website, which says "Public access is intended as a means of public protection."

Commenger is not a resident of the Philadelphia address listed on the Megan's Law website.

And every time we look for him, we find him in Coatesville at the same address on his Family Business Credit website.

We tracked down the minister once again for an explanation, "Minister Alif Allah, we know your real name is Arthur Commenger and you're a registered sex offender... We know you are not living at the address you listed on the Megan's Law website," said Nydia Han.

When Commenger ran away, Nydia asked, "Mr. Commenger, why can't you answer our questions?"

"I answered your questions," he responded.

"You have not answered my questions about being a registered sex offender," Han replied.

Commenger never did answer our questions about his past or the inaccurate information online.

So, the Troubleshooters reported the information to State Police, the agency tasked with maintaining the registry.
