Krystal Barbie, Takaye Reggae, Creative Director/Founder / The Konsortium Group TOTAL SCAM ARTIST!! BEWARE OF THIS WOMAN STEER CLEAR miami beach , Florida
Krystal Barbie aka Takaye Reggae / Creative Director/Founder / The Konsortium Group (the new name she is creating for her fake events planning company is a scam artist. Because of her awful reputation in Miami she si changing the company name from Krystal Barbie to The Konsortium Group. She claims to have all these contacts and in's with top hip hop artists and I will share a true story to prove she is a scam artist.
I replied to a Craig's List job post which is how we connected. She reached out to me and instantly something was off. So I googled Krystal Barbie and found this site plus the article about her in the NY Post about her arrest. I told her I didn't do business with convicted felons and told her thanks but no thanks. She persisted. A month later calls me interested in meeting with me, said that people who have beef with her tried to slander her and she's fighting it legally. Ok so this is when I take out my rope and proceed to give her some to hang herself (which she does).
After several email exchanges I am welcomed to the team and am told we will be hosting an event at The Dream Hotel & Tudor House Miami. Well first there weren't any guests arriving. Then the hotel confronts her asking her to provide a credit card for the event tab or leave. I stepped out wanting nothing to do with the scene that erupted with hotel staff. Few minutes later she leaves the hotel claiming we will take the event up the street to another hotel. That's her new racket. She trolls hotels posing as a party planner dropping names to get free food and drink.
Word on the street, literally is that she is homeless and one was an event planner who had run in's with law and has been hustling ever since. She has no physical address for her alleged company and while she talks a good game there is a tinge of ghetto that she just can't shake. She even when confronted threw the race card.
Turns out the Miami Charity the alleged party she was planning that never happened was for her. She claimed she was robbed and had nothing (yet her laptop and cellphone managed to come away clear).
When I called her out on her scam in the middle of Collins Avenue this random guy overheard me coming at her and said she tried to scam him too!! He was a security worker at St. Regis and she was using his name to try to snake her way into the St. Regis.
Given she talks a good game I feel she once did actually work in the industry but the gut doesn't lie. This chick is a scam artist and she will change her name and company name at the drop of a dime. She also wears fake Dior glasses to hide her eyes. Even at night!
My advice... drop all communication. When crazy comes towards you, cross the street. Not sure what happened to this poor soul to lead her to this life of only God knows but as a human I pray for her. She's about five foot nothing 105 pounds at most, and I pray her antics doesn't get her killed.
I have no gripe against her because I never anticipated being paid. I went along to see for myself what I already knew. Scam Artist! I just want to warn others and the hotels in Miami need to ban this woman.
