Alec Defrawy, through his minion Joe Gomez, has set up and runs a defamatory website claiming to spread the truth about detractors of his pals and supposedly former business associates at Fashion Rock LLC. Ayman Ahmed El-Difrawi aka Michael Difrawi aka Alec Defrawy aka Alexander Defrawy with "buddy" Dave Linn. This defamatory site is similar in content to the 14 sites set up by Lou Pearlman's Fashion Rock CEO Mark Tolner which accuses its detractors of being delusional nutbars who run "hate sites". One of the sites is even in the name of one such person at www.billrosenberger.com

What the good people at Hirebug apparently don't want you to know, based on its recent removal, is the fact that they also set up a porn collection and distribution site at www.stripbunnies.com. Now that may not be totally true. Alec and Joe might have simply been collecting pictures for their private collection but it seemed like a business opportunity based on this text.

Defrawy diversion tactics

AUTHOR: Klaas - (Netherlands)

Chris' contribution seems a very questionable one indeed. On the site scam.com single posting new member coolrecords also tried to suggest mr. Niehr's involvement in Defrawy's latest job-search phishing scams. (see about that http://www.klaasdevriesjr.nl/k-files/talentrock/alec_defrawy_difrawi_defrawi_phishing_scam.htm

Even though mr. Niehr's own activities smell rather scammish themselves, no connection to Defrawy was found by some of the best researchers on that board. See http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=2931&page=3 and

((ED READ))Re: William G. Niehr, Jr - RBI Associates

AUTHOR: Beach - (U.S.A.)

Fact 1:
I personally know William G. Niehr, Jr and Roger Boffardi and know for fact that Chris in Orlando, FL has his facts incorrect. William does not know Alec Defrawy, any of his acquaintances nor is he associated with Hirebug, Fashion Rock, etc.
Fact 2:
I was personally mislead by the Emodel & Options Talent scams and know that William G. Niehr, Jr was never involved with this company or its affiliates.

Once I inform William & Roger of the incorrect information that has been posted about them; I am sure you will hear from them or their attorney.

Kindest Regards,

Alec's name change and new scam: RBi Associates aka Action Funding, Inc with a new patsies: William Niehr & Roger G. Boffardi... Colombos are pissed!

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

Alec Defrawy thinks he will be protected simply by taking on a new name; Dr. Allen Madison. Meanwhile, he has dragged his old buddies into this new scam... luring people to his site and tricking them into giving personal information, which he sells to mortgage brokers. Terri Bears works on this scam, as do Joe Gomez, Armand Kulpa, Michele Presley Bell and several others recently cleared by Charlie Crist and his amnesty for sale program. Lou Pearlman has contributed over $5,000 openly.

In order to do business with impunity, Alec has gotten in bed with made men, although he is not aware of the turf rules. Meanwhile, the FBI is asleep at the wheel... Antonacci saw to that. Oh sure, some low-level gumshoe may get whiff, but any investigation will get killed. Hell, Alec's daddy was able to get military intelligence to run interference for him.

Alec's father, (a real Dr.) Ahmed el-Difrawi, works for Army intelligence in Quarterback Operations. He is the expert and the intelligence officer tells him what to do while he attends conventions and seminars. In exchange, they let little Alec rip off the American public. Real nice! In exchange for what Eqypt knows about interstellar telemetry?

Well, let's tell the people so they will know, since our government WON'T protect us.

Both R.B.I. Associates, Ltd., Inc. & Action Funding, Inc. share the same address in New York state:

Since the US Government will not bring us justice... hopefully we can appeal to the Colombos... Bringing this out in the open is not what they want. It is an embarrassment. Capito?!

Not so professional at Pro

AUTHOR: Les - (Canada)

Now I'm not sure if Allan liked the company so much that he bought it from the Kimbells, or whether he is just the latest Photographer and Field Representative for Pro Images Studios & Model Look International Magazine who has taken it upon himself to run their website and register it in his name.

The first person to do this was Dr. Daniel "Halcion" Hocking back in 1998. Like Allan and all the other reps from Pro Images, he criss-crossed small town America looking for anyone and everyone willing to pay $300-$450 to be in their magazine, optimisitic that "one of the thousand industry recipients" would see their headshot and call to book them.

Hocking wasn't just a photographer though. He had over twenty years experience as a mental health professional, educator, hypnotist, and organizational consultant. He had a B.A. degree in psychology from Illinois College; A Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from University of Illinois - Springfield; and had done doctoral work (Ph.D) at Southern Illinois University and at the University of Illinois.

Since the beginning of his professional career, Daniel had been actively involved in treating clients with biofeedback and hypnosis in addition to traditional counseling and psychotherapy. He even wrote a book, "The Depth of His Sin", about one of his clients who was seduced by someone she trusted. http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/sexabus6.htm

That summer Dan and his wife were even offering a money back guarantee at the 9th Annual Copper Harbor Marriage Retreat set for July 23 in Michigan.

Unbeknownst to his wife, he had already prepared the groundwork for his divorce. He was perhaps not a model husband, it seems.
-----------------------------
'Provocative' photos shot by ex-therapist are found in his Decatur home.

November 25, 1998
Herald & Review (Decatur, IL) Page: A3

An arrest warrant was issued Friday for the 45-year-old Decatur man, said Decatur police Cmdr. Mark Barthelemy. Hocking, who is charged with aggravated battery and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, had his bail set at $50,000. The charges stem from allegations that Hocking drugged a woman against her will.

They were in Iowa conducting a model search.

January 21, 2000

Daniel Hocking, 46, was found guilty of administering a harmful drug without consent.

The woman alleged Hocking, a family friend, photographer and a therapist who had treated her for depression, slipped her the sleeping pill Halcion while they were in Clinton conducting a model search.

March 16, 2000

After his victim talked of her fear and her wish for death, a Decatur man was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison for
administering a harmful substance.

Daniel Hocking, 46, also must undergo a psychiatric evaluation as part of his punishment for slipping the sleeping pill to the former Pana woman, who was his patient, while they were at the Frontier Motor Inn in June 1998 on a model search.
----------------------------
Then, with either the aid of an excellent lawyer or his hypnotic powers, Hocking evaded doing much time in jail. I could find no indication that he is licensed to practice in Illinois at this time.

Judge releases man 53 days into a five-year sentence - Lori Allesee, Herald Staff Writer May 12, 2000

The therapist convicted of drugging a female patient who accompanied him to Clinton on a model search was recently released from an Iowa prison and was spared time in an Illinois prison Wednesday in a similar case.

CLINTON - The therapist convicted of drugging a female patient who accompanied him to Clinton on a model search was recently released from an Iowa prison and was spared time in an Illinois prison Wednesday in a similar case.

Daniel Hocking, 47, Murrayville, Ill., was released from custody Monday upon a court order by Clinton County District Court Judge David Sivright. Hocking had served 53 days on his 5-year sentence.

As part of Sivright's order, Hocking must avoid contact with the 21-year-old victim, seek a sex addiction evaluation, complete a sex offender treatment program, abstain from illegal drugs and submit to random drug testing.

Sivright based his decision on Hocking's age, lack of criminal history, psychological report and potential for rehabilitation.

The therapist was convicted Jan. 20 of administering the hypnotic drug Halcion to Abby DeBrun while conducting a modeling search June 10,1998, at the Best Western Frontier Motor Inn in Clinton.

Just two days after his release from prison, Hocking appeared for another sentencing in Macon County, Ill. Hocking avoided additional prison time in exchange for his guilty plea to a charge of unlawful possession of a prescription drug. He was sentenced to 30-months probation for that crime.

The charge alleged Hocking used the medication to drug another woman in 1998, according to First Assistant Macon County Attorney Jack Ahola. However, charges of aggravated battery and possession of child pornography filed in connection with the case were dismissed.

The probation will run concurrent to the two-year probationary period already ordered in Clinton County.

Macon County Circuit Court Judge Jerry Patton also ordered Hocking to turnover his computer equipment and catch up on his delinquent child support payments within three months.
----------------------------------
So anyway, these model search road trips sure seem to bring out the worst in people. Or is it just that the worst people are out on the road trips?

Let's see who else is behind the operation, starting with Robert Holmes (wife Jackie) the owner of Model Look Inc in Charleston, Illinois.

Now there's also an Ollie Olsen and Charlotte Olsen, Oliver K. Fretz, Roger Perron, Kimberly Fountain, Kimberly Grooms, Amy O'Connor, Rebecca McGraw, Carrie Veach and others involved somehow, but how is anyone's guess. You can often never tell who's a photographer, President, editor, office manager, Model Evaluation Director, or otherwise a principal.

One person who has been asking is Beth Summerlin, an investigator with the Clayton County District Attorneys Office. She may be reached between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM EST Monday thru Friday at 770-477-3450.

It's been said that they offer jobs that never appear. Maybe there was a misunderstanding about what they offer. They say they are not a school or agency but have generated contracts which offer jobs. They seem to just take head shots for inclusion in their quarterly magazine (industry trade journal) but may also use people in their own commercial work. "Every month, we book models for a variety of magazine shoots."

"If selected, Model Look and their clients may elect to pay all, part or none of any travel expenses. At the end of each year, a grand prize winner will be selected of the years entrants to receive a $500.00 cash for a magazine assignment. Grand prize is sponsored by Pro Images Studios. If you wish to be evaluated for a Guaranteed Modeling Contract, please send us at least 2 photos, one full length and one close-up head-shot along with your measurements. We will respond in a couple days after we receive the information."

The shots I saw from their on-line magazine reminded me of my high school yearbook or the rejects from a passport photo shop. But then again I am not a professional photographer so I can only go with what I perceive to see. They accept any aspiring model regardless of age or physical attributes unless I am wrong. So I wonder how tough the Model Evaluation Director's position really is?

"In February 1997, when she was 60 years old and size 16, Stone paid Pro Images Studios $300 for their guarantee of three paid modeling assignments within the next year." http://www.readthehook.com/stories/2002/02/14/fearlessConsumerModelSeduc.html

"Applicants took turns walking in front of the agency's representatives, with each demonstrating his or her posture, smile and ability to pose for the cameras. Those who scored well were encouraged to sign contracts with the agency that would guarantee at least four modeling jobs over the course of the year. However, models must also spend up to about $450 for classes and pictures."

http://www.nwfdailynews.com/archive/news/01/011129news4.html

Maybe this charitable ignorance of genetic flaws is why Pro Images gained membership in the PROFESSIONAL MODELS ASSOCIATION INTERNATIONAL, INC, a creation of their own making.

But surely it's not just the prestige of belonging to their own association that keeps them going. Perhaps not. "Since the summer of 1995 Model Look has published over 8000 potential models." Wow, that's $3,600,000 worth of business less expenses. And if having to leave several towns because they didn't have a business license means they kept expenses low, that's a lot of dough.

It seems that the Georgia crew want to reduce expenses even further by printing a cheaper b/w version of the mag as Model Styles Magazine which Bob in Illinois at least does in color.

THIS MAGAZINE IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE A "SLICK" HIGH DOLLAR MAGAZINE. IN KEEPING IT SIMPLE, WE ARE ABLE TO HOLD DOWN EVER INCREASING COSTS, ALLOWING US TO MAKE THIS AN AFFORDABLE SERVICE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE.

Have they parted ways? Have they paid taxes on all the cash payments from models? Do they seem to live beyond their means? I don't know. Maybe someone down there in the sleepy town of Riverdale will send a picture of their homes or vacation properties at Hilton Head.

Not just whistling Dixie

AUTHOR: Les - (Canada)

That's a pretty darn good question, and one I've had to mull over for a bit.



Just as I wholeheartedly agree that people should have the right to express their opinions and state true facts both online and in other mediums, I will stand behind everyones right to generate money legally, provided it does not infringe on the rights of others.



That said, even though it may not be illegal for someone to run a porn site, I feel than when it is at odds with the general perception a person or company might give prior to, or after, establishing one, it bears some investigation.



By that I mean to suggest that a disparity might exist when a clown actually hates kids. Or when a child molester is running a day care center. Or when a devout Christian minister takes pictures of naked young girls. Or when a modeling agency for impressionable teens starts a hard core porn site. That sort of thing.



Take for example the self-appointed founder of the Coefield Spirit Filled Ministries in Madison, Georgia. Let's call him Reverend Allen Coefield for the sake of argument. The good Reverend is a bit of a shutterbug and talent scout based on his impressive resume.



From his "already nationally known base of operations" at Southern Views Inc. located at 638 Carriage Lane, Madison, GA 30650 US 770-315-9095 / 706-319-9617 / 706-319-9616 he has run

more photography, publishing and talent companies than there are exposures on a roll of film.



And like most of the pictures I take, several just didn't seem to turn out. I even suspect there are some he doesn't want exposed.



To name a few, Peach Photography www.peachphoto.com , Peach Model Management www.peachmodelmanagement.com, Peach State Photography, Coefield Photographics, Madison Photography, Spirit Filled Ministries, Southern Views Inc., SVI Talent Management www.svitalent.com, SVI Records, SVI Publishing www.svipublishing.com - http://spiritfilled.bizland.com, SVI Commercial Photography www.sviphotography.com , AKI

Commercial Photography, American Talent Magazine www.americantalentmagazine.com, Erotic Dreams On Line Magazine www.coefield.bizland.com/dreams, Southern Travels Magazine, Travel Dixie On Line Magazine, http://www.traveldixie.com/ Talent Focus on line Magazine, Modeling Advice Magazine.



According to his one website, "Allen Coefield is the owner and manager of SVI Talent Management. He has been involved in the talent industry as a photographer, client, seminar speaker, talent training instructor, radio talk show guest and talent industry consultant since 1982. Allen is a graduate of the University of Miami, graduate of the Recording Institute of American, and has been voted into membership with numerous talent industry organizations.



Allen is also an author for three talent industry related magazines. Allen is most noted for his award winning photography which has been published in over 500 publications world wide and used on numerous web sites and advertisements. Allen also has experience in radio broadcasting, sports casting and voiceover for advertisements and promotional materials."



From his other site it gets even better: "AKI Commercial Photography is a national leader for over 16 years in professional magazine photography. We have been published in over 800 national and international magazines and have worked withover 8000 models from 26 states.



We are always looking for models for assignments we are working on for ourselves as well as for clients. We also have an insite web site design and publication department and a professional

modeling career consulting office for full time career models. Contact us today to see what we can do to assist you in your photography needs."



http://akiphotography.bizland.com/aki/



Personally I'd fire the entire web design department. They suck.



"Allen was voted into the National Directory of Professional Freelance Photographers in Washington DC in 1992 and has been published over 70 times since then. He was named one of the top 10 photographers in the state of Georgia by the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 2001, 2002, and 2003. http://www.newslibrary.com/sites/ajc/ - no Coefield in archives, no other Google reference to a National Directory apart from his site



Allen has also won numerous awards for his talent industry seminars which are conducted for models, agents and others. He has appeared on radio talk shows to discuss the talent industry

and current issues from Virginia to Arkansas.



VOTED THE TOP MODELING INDUSTRY SEMINAR SPEAKER IN THE NATIONAL BY THE AMERICAN MODELING ASSOCIATION IN 1999, 2000, 2001 AND 2003



SVI Publishing and SVI Records works with musical talent in the fields of Bluegrass, Country and Gospel Music. This mirrors the organizations that recodnize SVI as a quality member of the music industry. Our history in the music industry goes back to the summer of 1982 and includes musical recording, radio marketing and broadcasting, and marketing."



Never too busy to take on work, he is also a photographer with Pro Images International where he displays his work and another online magazine.



http://proimages.bizland.com/tfm/



Now, like the old commercial said "I don't know art, but I know what I like." And I don't like his art. It's been said that his photos are lacking a little something. I can't say what without possibly insulting the aspiring models. You decide.



http://www.sviphotography.com/



Now I can't fault him for trying. And his heart seems in the right and virtuous place.



He's been devout enough to set up the Christian Talent Forum and even hosts the Christian Model and Photographer's Association Web Site at http://www.sviphotography.com/cmpa



"Greetings and welcome to our forum focusing on the top Chrstian talent in the world. Thanks and may this forum bring success to you and Glory to God."- Allen



SVI Talent Management is the nation's fastest growing talent management company. We are located in the metro Atlanta area and work with talent all over the nation. We work with models

and actors 12 and older for all types of work and provide our models with 100 to 400 job leads monthly.



SVI is a professional company that seeks to conduct business, treat others and conduct ourselves with principals and standards consistant with the Christian faith. We give all glory and honor for our success to Jesus Christ and seek to do his will in all that we do, say and practice.



We do not require our models or clients to adhere to the same beliefs but we choose to operate in this manner and seek to let our actions be a living wittness to He who created us and whom we seek to please."



Heck, he even gets such religious sites as http://www.alteredegg.com/ and

http://www.advocateministries.org/

to advertise in his "publications". And no wonder.



DO YOU HAVE A BUSINESS THAT YOU WANT TO ATTRACT TRAVELERS TO? WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OVER 500,000 WEB SITE VISITORS PER MONTH? THEN TRAVELDIXIE.COM IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOUR ADVERTISEMENT.



He's got to be a believer, or make them believe something, considering Alexa.com doesn't have even a poor ranking for his site www.traveldixie.com which only has one url reference in Google.



But back to modeling, his real bread and butter: "If you are serious about working in the talent industry and ready to get started visit our web site at www.svitalent.com then e-mail us at peachmodels@yahoo.com and send us one color photo and information about yourself."



"MODELS LISTED ON SVI MODEL PAGES HAVE BEEN HIRED FOR, CONSIDERED FOR AND FEATURED IN LOCAL ASSIGNMENTS TO THE ATLANTA AREA, NATIONALLY RECODNIZED MODELING AGENCIES, DISNEY, VH1, FOX, ABC, CBS, MTV, AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER OPPORTUNITIES. THEY ARE PERFECT FOR YOUR NEEDS AS WELL. ALL HAVE BEEN TRAINED VIA THE SVI TRAINING SYSTEM AND ARE READY TO WORK FOR YOU"



"Very, very few of any of our job leads require any form of nudity and we do not and will not work with any leads associated with adult (pornography) jobs."



That all sounds great even though someone might dispute the claims about being the nation's fastest growing talent management company based on the dozen clients he displays along with unattributed photos.



Now you are probably asking yourself what's wrong with that and I'd have to say nothing except that, for a start, in 1998 Peach Photo was set up for Adult Discrete Film Developing until it switched over to a talent agency for young girls.



"Peach Photo provides Confidential & Very Discreet Photo Finishing. Naked Men, Naked Women, Whatever you choose to photograph should not be anybody's business but your own."



"Our clients trust us to provide the best private photo-processing lab with no questions or hassles. We provide a safe and secure area to process adult subject matter photographs for

artists, celebrities, models, lawyers, doctors, law enforcement, private investigators, amateurs, couples, individuals, gay & l*****n's, honeymooner, bachelor and bachelorette parties, fraternity / sorority parties, any adult party at all."



So before, after, or during your wedding you can rely on Allen.



"Coefield Photographics is a national leader in wedding, family, talent, and commercial photography. Our wedding photography has been the studio of choice for individuals and families in 17 states for over 18 years. Our cempetitive rates,unmatched servce and unequaled quality is what makes us the best."



Now his associate David Bruchs aka Roger LeSmith, appears to be his right hand man, constantly seeking out new business opportunities and magazine names.

Welcome to the new voice of the talent industry. American Talent Magazine is a new on line publication with an unslanted focus on the talent industry for pros and beginners.



Concerning TCT or Options Talent I do believe that false advertising can justify a company getting the title of sham. False Advertising centers more around fraud. A scam, as I state in the article means you pay them and you never hear from them again. Yes, there have been thousands of complaints against TCT/Options but when you consider how many people they have done

business with it makes one wonder if the percentage of complaints is normal for the amount of business done as with anyother company.



Dont misunderstand me or the article. I am not justifying TCT/Options, I dont know if they should be justified or not. They may be the biggest scam ever..."



Other staff include RYAN McKENON Administrative Manager and MIKE LISTER Director of Promotional Services.



Meanwhile Allen is cruising the countryside taking pictures of young girls nipple rings after luring them to his "photo shoots". But no fat girls please!

I am in need of four glamour (including topless) models 18 and older for sessions I am doing in Wichita KS the weekend of August 7th. 18 and older only please and need to be in reasonable shape. To be considered e-mail me directly at the link listed and include a photo (NOT A LINK). I will respond to all.



Thanks

I will be in the Dallas area for the next two weekends and am looking for female models 18 and older for freelance tfp and tft sessions. No porn...mild nudity required....tease clothing...and glamour themes required. for consideration e-mail me directly a link to a web page with info about yourself and at least one photo.

Thanks

I am glad that he draws the line at what he considers porn. Of course after developing presumably thousands of rolls of "discrete adult film" that line might get blurred a bit.



Now don't get me wrong here. There is nothing wrong with young girls breasts. I was quite fond of them in my youth and would be sorely tempted if I was poked in the eye with one.



But I don't have a wife named Kathy Coefield sitting back in Madison baking cookies (Azlinda) thinking I am out on some religous mission to promote Christian models, all the while zooming in on some supple, yet firm, buxom bounty from God with a spirit-filled urge to expose my film.

So what's with that business model? Does the photographer work just for "tips"?



It's good enough to try to lure investors it seems. I wonder if they are licensed to offer securities?



from http://www.prweb.com/releases/2003/9/prweb82012.htm



"National Management Company looking to expand: SVI Talent Management, a division of Southern Views Inc is looking to expand it's already nationally known base of operations

SVI Talent Management, a division of Soithern Views Inc is looking to further it's operational base from 14 states to all 50 states over the next year and is looking for investors to assist in this expansion.



SVI has a prven profitability record and can show potential investors how an investment of $50,000 or more can be returned in one year plus 18% to 20% within a year.



For additional information and to talk to an SVI representative simply contact us via mail at Southern Views Inc P O Box 27 madison Georgia 30650 or call 706-319-9616"



Now I don't know about southern views regarding supposedly devout Christians taking pictures of young girl's breasts and calling it glamour photography but my view is that the guy is a hypocrite who made the mistake of spreading defamatory lies about me and my co-defendants on numerous forums under assumed names.



Lies only annoy. It's the truth that really hurts.

#6 UPDATE Employee

What's the scam?

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

Les, I agree with Darren. There are several posts on this site regarding the owners of HireBug. There are several other posts regarding HireBug itself. But there is nothing at all regarding the scams that they apperently run. What is the scam? How many people are legitimate victims? Where is the documentation that proves your point?



I see plenty of photos of people, and a few whois queries. But nothing indicating that there really is a scam. I appreciate that you are trying to provide information to the public. But your rants seem to be comparable to what Chemical Ali did for Saddam Hussein. Lots of colorful propaganda that amounted to absolutely nothing. Please, Les. Tell us what they have done to scam people as it will make you seem much more credible.

More information please?

AUTHOR: Darren - (U.S.A.)

Les,

Besides creating and marketing porno sites could you please tell us what they are doing that is a Rip-Off or a Fraud? Porno is a matter of taste, but it isn't illegal in America (yet).



From what I gather, people are attacking them and they are attacking back. Intesting, but why were they attacked in the first place?



Call me lazy, Attention Deficit or too busy. But if you are looking to make a statement concerning a company or an individual, could you please make it clear exactly what they are doing so we can get an idea.
