Back in November of 2011, Joseph Nicoletti contacted me and sold me his three year contract for $1500, instead of his usual price of $3200. However, the money had to be wired the next day, immediately. Two months later, he convinced me to
purchase both a license as a songwriter and a publisher from ASCAP in New York, charging me $575 for this; each license costs only $35 online.
However, he insisted I complete the paper forms, with my Social Security number, and mail them back to him. In less than a month later, I needed to upgrade to a commodity for another$375, so that he could list me on Wall Street and sell me to potential investors.
When I called the NYC office of ASCAP five months later, I discovered that I have no license with them, nor do I even exist in
their data banks! Red flags have continually gone up concerning the trustworthiness and credibility of Joseph Nicoletti. [continued below]....
I have never received any list of to where and to whom he has sent out my promo material to, as promised every 15-45 days in his contract. As a published author with a 400 page book, plus a singer/songwriter with two CDs and lyrics to sixty-six original songs, Id like to know exactly what he does send out about me?!
I should have heeded the advice of my computer savvy son long ago when he did some research on Nicoletti being a scammer.
Also, not one friend or family member ever trusted my decision to send him money.
After consulting with David King of Dreamer Music in Oregon, I discovered that he paid $7K to Joseph Nicoletti Consulting with no results too. Another client, Elaine Brewer in Missouri, paid Nicoletti $3200 with the same story as ours.
Most every time Ive ever contacted Nicoletti by phone, which is not an easy thing to do, he was always too busy on another call to talk with me, promising to call back shortly- which usually didnt happen. His email responses are so short, poorly worded and misspelled, that I often wonder if he writes them while driving in Laguna Beach traffic. Youd think a man of his supposed caliber
would act professional, not shady. Ill probably never get my money back or see my ASCAP licenses from Nicoletti, but I will
get the truth out in the open about this unscrupulous character, masking as a talent agent. He doesnt seem to be credible or trustworthy. Shame on you,
Joseph. Musicians beware!
