all parents:

do not go to kidstalent.net in neveda. they scammed me out of almost $500 after they told me they would submit my child to agents all of the world! well, they did nothing, my kid doesn't even have an agent now.

the owner, alex simon, is a smooth talking used car salesperson that hooked us right in with his "oh your son is wonderful, he'll make lots of money...he'll be working in a few weeks or so". all complete bs and we fell for it. yes, we were wrong to believing anyone that was guaranteeing work, which we found out is impossible.

also, there is no work in nevada anyways. all the work is out in los angeles. since then, i have been in touch with a reputable service in los angeles and we already have an agent now, who's part of sag, screen actors guild and have had 3 auditions.

Kids talent got our money but don't let ALEX SIMON steal your money too!

Hopefully, this will warn all unsuspecting parents of KIDS TALENT.NET.

THEY ARE A SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T PAY THEM A DIME!!!!!!!!!!!

They claim they're with the BBB, better business bureau. any busines that will pay can become a memeber of the bbb company.

ALEX SIMON, how can you sleep at night?

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

CLARIFICATION FROM KTN'S OWNER

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

After having been in business for over two years WITHOUT A SINGLE COMPLAINT, I am shocked at the recent amount of criticism found about myself and my company, Kids Talent Network, LLC on the internet.

After much research, WE DISCOVERED THAT THESE ABSURD AND FALSE CLAIMS WE and continue to be POSTED BY A COMPETITOR TRYING TO DISCREDIT US.

The person who wrote the first report ("Shirley") actually emailed us to make us aware of the filing. We looked her up, but FOUND NO SUCH PERSON AS A CLIENT OF OURS. I personally emailed her back offering to discuss a refund and to find out the reason for her unhappiness. She declined to discuss a refund, as well as refusing to reveal her real name. This, and other evidence, brought us to the conclusion that ALL POSTINGS ON HERE ARE FROM THIS PERSON (UNDER DIFFERENT ALIASES), and that this person is working on behalf of one of our competitors.

We have maintained a perfect record with the Better Business Bureau, not only as members, but also being part of the BBB's HONOR ROLL for every one of our years as members.

I PERSONALLY INVITE ANY DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY TO DISCUSS A REFUND of any fees paid to my company. We have fully refunded customers who, for whatever reason, believed were not given what was promised to them.

Meanwhile, we will continue to provide our outstanding service of facilitating the road to success to aspiring young models and actors across the United States.

Sincerely,

Alex Simon
Founder
Kids Talent Network, LLC

#3 Consumer Suggestion

yep, they tryed scamming me too! at the kids expo in vegas! another john robert powers!

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

to whom it may concern; other parents;
i was scouted with my child at a kids expo here in vegas by this company.
they said how great my baby was and they could definately get my baby an agent in los angeles or new york. well, their contract said they didn't guarantee anything.

i also have a friend who's well connected in the industry. she said that most agents don't want babies and when they do they go through very well known places in new york city or los angeles. she has never heard of kids talent.net and said it was nothing but a come on. like another person said on this site, if you want your kid to do this, go straight to new york, la or miami. they're are plenty of cute kids there, why would they bother with a cute kid in vegas. i also saw the sleaze factor from their staff.

if you're going to register with them, ask them for a list of agents around the world (as they say) that you can telephone and verify they use kids talent.net, and for how long and how many kids have they taken form the company and how many projects have the got kids from them actually hired and not just in bit parts as my friend said. also ask them if they even use babies, most do not. you'll probably find you've wasted your time with this company kids talent.net.

they also sell you classes, just like john robert powers here in vegas.

well, they didn't get my money, no way guys.

#4 Consumer Suggestion

This company has been scamming parents for a while in Las Vegas! Alex Simon is a con artist...bbb company a scam too!

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

i went to this company a year or so ago after seeing them on the web.

on the phone, i asked them what the cost was. they said we get paid from the producers. ok, fine so i went.

well, i found they wanted a fee of $500 to maybe get my kid an agent. that is a small amount, don't get me worng, but t really made me concerned about them was that they lied on the phone when i asked about fees and it WAS intentional. paying wasn't the issue. again, it was just how misleading they are. i also found out that many of the projects they tout they have cast kids on are mostly lowing paying or NO PAY jobs as extras, which you can do in las vegas or los angeles for much less.

they really mislead me quite a bit and i also met 2 other parents with them who did join and they haven't heard a peep from them since they paid, they basically forgot about it. they just said...we got scammed, oh well. alex is a great salesman who knows what to say and when to get your cash.

one more important item that they tout on their website is that they're on the bbb as a good company. my husband knows someone who used towork for the bbb in vegas as a salesman ans he said that the bbb is a corrupt organization that basically will grade anu business with an excellent rating as long as they have the cash. he personally experienced this. they are just a sales organization and if they get a complaint form a paying business they...get rid of it!

so, i too, would stay away from kids talent.net in las vegas. if you're going to pursue this seriously, you must go to los angeles, and it's not easy.

ask yourself, why are they in las vegas to begin with?

I know all about this company kids talent.net is nevada...run the for the exit! alex simon is a scammer!

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

Here's one of the ad's their running all over the net:

Kid Got Talent?
Boys and Girls Needed. Ages 0-12
Submit Now - Immediate Response!
www.KidsTalent.Net
California


They're trying to scam people out in CA also. I have spoken to several agentsand they do NOT use this company for kids!

They all say...they're in Las Vegas...are you kidding us?

We work with companies here in los angeles, we really don't take kids in places like las vegas that seriously.

one agent stated...oh, alex simon, he's contacted our agency before. we checked him out in nevada, no thank you! we heard many not so nice things.

PARENTS- watch this company, they use their sleazy sales come on's to get you into their system. they can't promise you anything and remember, they're in nevada for god sakes!

watch out!
