Um Hi my name is Payten, I am 15 years old now and I can no longer keep my silence. I was 13 years old when I met Mark Valinsky at the Santa Monica Mall. Mark gave me his business card and said I had the look for modeling and that if I was interested in modeling to give him a call. At first I thought it was weird that a grown man of 40 something was giving me his business card, but deep down inside it was my dream to be a model. I waited like a month before calling Mark, I had to get my nerve up.

He answered when I called, I told him who I was and where I met him and he said he remembered me. I said I wanted to be a model and I asked him how much would it cost and what do I need to do. He said it would not cost anything and all I had to do was pose. Mark said he wanted to do a test shoot to see how photogenic I was. I said do I need my parents to go with me and Mark said no because it was a test shoot and that the photos would no be used for anything.

So Mark picked me up where we met and he took me shopping to buy some clothes for the shoot, he told me I would be perfect for glamour modeling. I said can teens do that? And Mark said yes, he told me of a site that specialized in teen glamour modeling (www.trueteenbabes.com) and that I could make a lot of money with them. So we got to Mark's studio and he showed me the website he mentioned.

He asked me if it would be ok to take test shots like the girls on that website and I hesitated, but he convinced me to and I went along with it. Mark first took pictures of me in a dress, then in a bikini and finally implied and semi nude. Mark must have shot over 400 pictures of me, I felt naked and exposed. Mark took pictures of me with barely any clothes on, I mainly wore a thong, high heels and open shirt with no bra. Mark then asked me if I would do implied nudity and I said no I am not getting naked.

He said implied nudity is not nudity at all, that it gives the impression that I am nude. He offered to pay me $500 to do it and I did. Some of the pictures my nipple was showing and Mark said he would edit it out. After the shoot, Mark dropped me off where he picked me up and said he would contact me when he selected the best pictures. About a week later Mark called me and told me he selected the best pictures. So once again he picked me up at the mall and we went to his studio. Some of the pictures I liked and some of them I hated.

I asked Mark not to show anyone those pictures and he said that he could do whatever he wanted to do with the pictures because they were his property. I said how much do you want for me to buy those pictures and he said $5000.00. I said I don't have that kind of money, then Mark put his hand on my leg and moved it up my skirt. I was nervous and scared. Mark said I could have the pictures or he would destroy them if I performed a striptease for him and be completely naked in front of him.

I did it because I wanted those pictures. There I stood completely naked in his studio, I was nervous and scared, I was more worried about my parents finding out what I did. Mark had his pants open and he was touching himself as i stripped. After I was done he wanted me to touch him where he was touching himself. I said no way!!! And I started to cry and I wanted to go home. Mark said if I touched him while I was naked, that I could get the pictures and that he would drop me off.

When Mark dropped me off at the mall, all he did was smile at me and then he drove away. I cried and was ashamed at what I had did. If this is what modeling is all about I don't want anything to do with it. The reason I made this post 2 years later was because I saw one of my pictures on Mark's website (www.markvalinskyphotography.com), it was a picture of me in my dress. This scared me and I wondered if Mark still had copies of all the pictures he took of me. I sent him an email to take my picture down, which he did.

If anyone reads this beware of Mark, I checked online and the things on Mark's Model Mayhem profile #431659 and his website are not true, Mark has done nothing that he claims. Mark use to own a company named Valcom Media, he said he use to be a movie producer too. I think Mark is a liar. What Mark did to me, I wonder if he did it to his two daughters. Yes, Mark has children too, I worry about them, I hope they don't go through what I went thru when I was 13 years old.

There is no such police report! - Never was! - Check for yourself! - It is filled with LIES!

Don't forget to follow-up!

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

You're parents should have a case number, and the name and phone number of the investigating detective.

Don't let "the system" forget about this.  Your parents need to contact the investigative detective WEEKLY to obtain investigation updates.  Your parent should also contact your county/city District Attorney to ensure this complaint doesn't get lost in the woodwork.  In other words, your parents are going to have to apply some pressure to the authorities so that this case is ACTIVELY INVESTIGATED and so the DA will prosecute.

The first thing that should happen is a request for a SEARCH WARRANT to examine his computers.  Also, the will need to supply a subpoena to his web host and internet service provider to obtain any backup copies of his website and website change logs.  If you know the approximate date that the images were removed from his website, that will help the investigators to find evidence of the pictures.  The subpoena needs to executed quickly for obvious reasons.

Keep up the pressure!  Good luck.

Becoming less believable

AUTHOR: voiceofreason - (United States of America)

Peyton, if that's really your name and you really exist as described, your continuing posts are destroying your credibility.
If you are for real, you need to stop posting here and have your parents contact the authorities IMMEDIATELY.

By posting here, you are opening them up to civil/legal liabilities from the man you are accusing, and possibly crossing the line yourself into illegal actions.

In addition, let's say this is all on the level, and he has these photos you describe. How would you ever know he's sent you all copies, whether film based or digital, if he were to send you anything?

He could store multiple digital copies of anything anywhere. Even film negatives can be duplicated.

If your last request was on the level, it paints you as incredibly naive, or as not being for real.

Ripoff Reports and other social media are not the venues for playing a situation like this out.

Any more posts from you here and I guarantee, your folks are likely to pay a heavy price legally or civilly, so stop it now and heed the advice of those of us who told you from the get go to go to the authorities.

Mark I Want All My Pictures Back!!!!

AUTHOR: Payten C - (USA)

Mark I want all my pictures back, I know you still have copies of all the pictures you took of me. If I do not get all my pictures back I will post online all over the internet the implied nudity pictures you took of me. I am sure you still have my cell number, so call me and I will give you an address to send them. If I ever see my pictures anywhere I will tell my parents and go to the police and file a report against you.

Have your parents call the police.

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

IF what you stated is true, the DA will prosecute this scum.  At the very least they will investigate the matter.  This will likely include confiscating any computers he has to examine them for pictures of you.  Even if he deleted the pictures they can be recovered and used as evidence against him.  You claimed that he had a picture of you on his website and took it down when you demanded it be removed.  A forensic computer analysis of his computers (and the website server/ISP if needed) will easily determine if this is true.

Your rational for not calling the police doesn't wash.  It will cost you and your family NOTHING to file a criminal complaint with your county/city D.A.  Plenty of other wealthy celebrities have been prosecuted and convicted for similar offenses.  Roman Polanski comes to mind.

If you're not willing to have your family contact the D.A and prosecute this guy, then there is some other aspect to your story that you're not telling.  It might be some drug issue or 'pay for sex" issue but that is irrelevant to having this schmuck prosecuted.  That would be grounds for additional charges against him and would probably mean that if he's convicted, he might actually spend some time behind bars.  This is assuming what you have posted is TRUE.

The way to STOP him is to have him prosecuted.  Postings on the internet, especially serious allegations mean NOTHING.  Anyone can post anything.

At this point, if you're not going to tell your parents there really isn't much to be done by posting this on the internet.  Most folks know how to filter out the bullsh*t.  When SERIOUS allegations of a crime, especially a crime against a child, are posted with NO FOLLOW-UP with government authorities, it usually means the story is bull.

You claim to want to prevent him from doing this to someone else.  If that is true, then you'll talk with your parents and they will contact the D.A. and file formal charges against this guy.

Peyton, no turning back

AUTHOR: voiceofreason - (United States of America)

You made serious allegations here about this guy, and it could have serious legal/civil implications for your parents, or you, if not followed through to the next level.

If you're on the level, and so far some of us obviously believe you are (belief however is subject to change, and is not statement of fact), your family needs to take this guy down legally.

If you don't press charges against him, not only is he free to do this to others (who will likely not see these posts), but he can take action against y'all for defamation.

I don't want to scare you, because kids your age tend to blow anything serious someone tells them totally out of proportion. The world is NOT coming to an end. But you, and possibly others, have been victimized, and you need to make your post here OFFICIAL by taking it to the proper authorities.

You have photos? Then you have evidence, to some extent anyway, depending on how much their origin can be verified.
He might have evidence too that can be obtained via search warrant. You'd be surprised how stupid some pedos can be about that.

Have your parents file a complaint TODAY!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Mark S. Valinsky, Age 50, Photographer/Actor/Doctor - This is him

AUTHOR: Payten 13 - (USA)

Thanks for your support everyone, Yes this is the same Mark Steven Valinsky who took those pictures of me when I was 13 etc. This is what I know of Mark, he is very connected in Hollywood and with politics, his picture is everywhere with celebrities, politicians etc. I don't stand a chance going to anyone, who am I? I am no one just a 15 year old girl who comes from a poor family who wants to make something of her life and be something more. I am just letting other girls know who Mark Valinsky is so that they can beware of this creepy guy. He used his Hollywood charm on me and it worked and I got nothing out of the deal except heartbreak from pursuing my dreams to be a model. My family cannot afford to have professional pictures taken of me for modeling and I saw this as an opportunity to build a portfolio and maybe make some money. I still want to be a model, I still have the pictures that Mark took of me, some are not implied nudity and I could use them. This is what I know of Mark Valinksy: Dr. Mark Steven Valinsky, Age 50, 5'8"-5'10", 170-190lbs., his Model Mayhem account is 431659, website www.markvalinskyphotography.com, his addresses are 578 Washington Blvd #708, Marina del Rey, CA 990292 and 3806 Pacific Avenue Apt E, Marina del Rey, CA 90292. His phone numbers are 310-463-4052/310-827-7177/310-383-7898 and email is photos@markvalinskyphotography.com. I don't know where else to post that will be effective to warn other girls about Mark Valinsky, if I did I would post elsewhere. I may not have the connections or resources that Mark has, I am sure he would be able to get away with what he did to me based on his connections and not get arrested. No bad publicity will ruin Mark and his reputation. I plan to post the implied nudity pictures that Mark took of me, for some reason this site did not upload the pictures that he took of me, maybe they were to explicit to post. Thank you for all of your support.

Peyton, tell parents, get a lawyer and go to police

AUTHOR: voiceofreason - (United States of America)

If you were victimized by THIS Mark Valinsky -
http://www.markvalinskyphotography.com/about.htm - he is apparently a pretty well connected guy in Hollywood.

Check out his other mentions on the internet, Facebook, etc and see if its the same guy who used you.

It may have been a predator using a fake identity in hopes the big name recognition would make it more likely his victim would go along with him.

One way or the other your parents need to know, you all need an attorney to protect your interests, and go to the cops and DA to get whoever this is off the streets.

Payten, if what you have described is accurate...

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

you were victimized by a pedophile.  This is someond preying on children and should be stopped to prevent this from happening to others like yourself.  This is a very low-life person.

It will take some courage, but the previous poster has pretty well summed up what you should do.

Best wishes to you, hopefully you can blame the proper party (him) and get on with your life.

If someone had done this to my daughter, I'm not sure what would happen to the pedophile, but I'd likely be in jail.

It's not too late for justice.

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

#1.  No need for shame!  You were, and still are, a child.  As such, you cannot entire into or be bound by a contract-those pictures are NOT his unless your parent or guardian signed a release.

#2.  Talk to your parents and contact law enforcement to press charges against this creep!  Posting here doesn't accomplish much, if anything.  CONTACT THE POLICE!

#3.  Your parents need to file and pursue charges against this bozo.  The way to stop him from doing this again is to PROSECUTE HIM-that will put an end to his games.

Good luck in the future.
