I have been putting pieces of a crime together but I wanted proof prior to saying anything and as always legally and personally you want to give people a chance to come clean and make things right before putting them on blast.

In July I competed in the Ms Plus World Pageant. The director of the pageant Jaspher Knowles Companies is the owner of 2 Fake internet companys  Drapery and  Plus Couture modeling group from the Bahamas. Jaspher  contacted me about
the pageant in Feb. After multiple conversations back and forth I didn't feel comfortable paying the pageant fees as he wanted me to Western Union them to the Bahamas where he lives. And Eventually I agreed to Paypal Funds for
the pageant entry fee to his project manager Anedra Walls (company's affiliated with NFinity Modeling group) who lives in Fayetteville NC.

I constantly monitored the situation as I noticed it wasnt being given as much promo as I would have given a brand new pageant system. [continued below]....
.....
Recently I was given light to the fact the entire pageant was a complete and utter scam to get money and Promote Draphery which is Jasphers clothing line.

The signs of fraud begin to appear more vivid both during the pageant and even still now.

Jaspher lives in the Bahamas and had a previous relationship with Rosalynn Minaya of the Puerto.  He intended purpose was to use her to promote his fashion line with our registration monies.

1. The rules of the pageant changed multiple times.

    1.The pageant was suppose to be Private Judges Interview, Swimsuit, Gown, etc.          
The private judge interview was taken out of the competition. This was because Rosalynn during weird key
times said she didnt speak or understand English. We completed a onstage question in which a translator was bought for her. When it was time for Rosalynns question she made a statement in Puerto Rican and the translators 9 year old daughter did a 9 year old job of repeating her answers. She then snatch the mic and repeated the terrible answer in English. She was award
highest points for this.

    2.When we got to the pageant all of a sudden we are giving One contestant (Puerto Rico) 20 extra points because she won peoples choice but that wasnt in the rules.  During the online peoples choices polling Rosalyns Aunt put on all the other delegates pages Vote for Rosalynn and a clickable link in English and Spanish.

   3. All of a sudden cash prize would be stipend.

   4. Director was back stage bragging about his mass distribution which is a hook up I  got him and took back when I got to know him.

    5. The sash was made a size 4x which no other girl could wear except the intended winner.

    6. Clothing was previous made in the size of 4x the intended winner

     7. The intended winner was the first person advertised on the pageant FB page 2 months before recruiting begin.

2. The awards for the pageant  changed. There were offers of a 1 year modeling contract that turns out to be from Jasphers created agency. Hotel accommodations, airfare, photo shoots, hair, make up, portfolio packages etc have never been
paid to contestants.

3. No one has received any of the rewards  except Puerto Rico . And she was apart of the scam. I cant verify what she has and has not received because I dont talk to her. I have conversations recorded were other contestants said they received
nothing.

4. The first night at the pageant there was a fashion show, none of the girls are  the same size Puerto Rico was the biggest of all the girls by far but managed a comfortably fit into all the clothes that belong to the designer.

5. Puerto Rico was announced as the home of the 2013 pageant on the stage at the pageant and  the day after
the 2012 pageant was complete and there was already promotional materials made that said 2013 Ms. Plus World Pageant in Puerto Rico posted to Facebook the same day and night. There was also already a hotel and city picked for the 2013
Puerto Rico pageant.

 The reason Puerto Rico won the 2012 Ms. Plus World pageant is because she was closet to Bahamas where
this designers lives. The 1st runner was Trinidad and Tabago which was the next closet island to the Bahamas, and 2nd runner up was South Carolina which is the next location delegate.

Since releasing this statement the designer/Jaspher Knowles has deleted his facebook page and refused to contact anyone about his involvement. Anedra Walls also refuses comments about her involvement.

AUTHOR: Latashatx1 - ()

Rosa,

You continue to prove the point of how fake the pageant is.

  1. You just wrote a full email in English with no problem did you need a translator for this?
  2. I have been in the pageant scene for a second you do not get points on the stage question because you were brave enough to answer it! If this was the case the 2007 teen Ms. South Carolina would have won of the 2013 Miss Utah would have won. They were both brave with very dumb answers just like you and lost as should.
  3. I am far from MAD because I didn’t win. I am angry because my dress took 6 weeks to create and cost $1000 my plane tickets were $400, my swimsuit and other stuff that totals over $3000 and you and Jaspher Cheated and EVERYONE WILL KNOW>! Because of all the  complaints I was the only person that atleast got my entry fee back. Thank you Paypal!
  4. You continue to be stupid. the other contestants were laughing at you in the back.? Can you please tell me what this has to do with the (INDEPENDENT PANEL OF PROFESSIONAL JUDGES THAT WERE HIRED TO JUDGE) uhhh because they weren’t in the back and I don’t remember anyone laughing at you we were too busy getting dressed?
  5. You spoke about the internet ummm was It not you that cheated? Did your sister not go posting on FB to vote for you on other contestants pages? And then when we get to the competition Jaspher decides to give you an extra 10 points randomly? Really?
  6. You were the last to arrive and didn’t need to try on clothing because yours were previously made for you. The 2014 pageant was already booked in your home country before you won. You were the first advertised on the FB.  You won and Jaspher had a relationship with you and the 1st runner up already had a relationship with the project manager Anendra .
  7. As far as the rewards package that I still have copies off YES the rewards did include exactly what I said it did above,  the package was changed halfway through the pageant and you were ignorant to that. Please don’t comment on things that you have no clue about.
  8. Everything else was a lie and I don’t need to address be careful what you say I watch and protect my branding very well and I will make you hate me in court because you are wrong.
  9. In some ways I feel sorry for you. You created some great friends and they all were cheated no one received prizes I haven’t even received pictures and that’s not hard! You claim to not be on the staff well tell me this why are you defending them?> your friends didn’t received monies and rewards either aren’t you concerned?
  10. I am not taking any of the YOUTUBE videos down in fact when I go home I am going to put 5 more up just for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to continue to let people know YOU and JASPHER, and Anedra and the entire thing was a scam!!!!!!!

I swear to you not another plus size girl will be cheated from these scam or another! BRAND A SCAM!

THANKS FOR THE PR PLEASE CONTINUE TO REPLY FOR MORE EXPOSURE!!!!!!

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCULiM6HGYY

 

What people don’t understand in these situations is it is best you shut up! Had you not replied I wouldn’t have made you look like an ass by pointing out everything  you just said that was wrong and anyone in pageant can prove me right. Jaspher, Anedra and you scammed a pageant for money and have not paid a thing or give any rewards and that’s wrong.

  Okay its my time to talk , I had been quiet about this for a long time , to set this straight im going to repeat every point of ms Latasha mentions and add my answer ,, because I don’t anything to be left out . 1- Interview----, I don’t know why the private interview was taken out but I’m sure if was not because of me. ----------Addressing your issue about my English which is obviously a problem to you , A translator was requested because English is my second language months before the competition took place because I didn’t feel comfortable with my accent, I had the emails to prove it , all international pageant has them becuase is their responsability to provide the same opportunity to each contestant The organization was not able to get me one on the first night, I was told if I was okay with that and I said ok because I’m not afraid of the challenges. ….. I speak English… I never said ONCE that I didn’t speak English or used it as excuse to get free pass . I did request a translator to be present in case I had a problem; I still when out and did my job when it was not provided ... dont use this as your excuse for losing …..precisely the issue you are referencing on here is the best example ….. On coronation night the translator daughter who was translating my final question got stuck when translating ….. I was awarded high points simply because I had the courage to step up to the microphone and answer the question the best I could when she got stuck while you and the others contestant we laughing at me on the back .. that’s is call having a positive personality , being a fighter and having Charisma and judges like that , answering a final question is more than seek the audience approval by mentioning god without even addressing a final question like you did it is about the contents of the question , having grace , personality and Charisma …is all whole package. 2- As for the points, I was the winner of the online competition , my picture was shared as twice as yours , got the double the votes you did in case you don’t know that’s is all about the internet competition sharing and drive traffic to the pageant page and that was what I did with the help of my family while you and your fans were whinning because you were losing … you probably would it won if you would handled things different . English and Spanish was used to promote because oh well ! is in international pageant and it was obvious there were some people speaking different languages and on 2012 happens that one of them was a latina who speak Spanish . … we were told several time in writing that the online competition was our first challenge and the winner was been awarded points …. Again if you would acted differently probably you would got the memo 3- If im not mistaken , the cash stipend was for the winner ( me ) and to this day as part of my prizes , I had received part of that cash stipend – I don’t need to discuss that with you but I will gladly do it to a judge or a lawyer just to prove you are wrong 4- Point number 4 your conversation with the director -----that’s between you and the director …. While I was there I took the time to enjoy my experience ,get my things in order , and take my time to meet the girls …..I didn’t had the time to mingle with the staff , sucking up to anyone ,make untimely jokes to attract attention , speak about other candidates behind their back , bragg about been a paid model and had MBA ( wich by the way is nothing because Im also educated ) , or whine over everything like you did . 5. The sash was made a size 4x which no other girl could wear except the intended winner. ------it was a PLUS SIZE PAGEANT what your where expecting? a 30”sash? 6. Clothing was previous made in the size of 4x the intended winner-------false , if you don’t remember let me refresh your memory I was the last one to arrive to the venue due to problem with the flights you should know because you were on the same flight and got a chance to be changed to an earlier flight and even came to me to let me know you did the change when your were leaving with a grim on your face knowing I will late. Thanks to that I was also the last to do her fitting and was left with yellow dress that didn’t fit , I had to walk the runway with zipper down also was left with a pageant tee size 2 that barely fitted me 7. The intended winner was the first person advertised on the pageant FB page 2 months before recruiting begin…… I was the first contestant to sign in my promotion started as soon as I send my first email …. Not my fault you signed last, before you talk you should check things well so you don’t make a fool out of yourself 2. The awards for the pageant changed. There were offers of a 1 year modeling contract that turns out to be from Jasphers created agency. Hotel accommodations, airfare, photo shoots, hair, make up, portfolio packages etc have never been paid to contestants. -------FALSE read your contract and welcome package , as a candidate I received lodging ,meals , was taken to the beauty salon every single day for hair and makeup , pics were taken proof of that is that you took one of them without my consent to make this report , sigth seeing trip was made ……. You were there, you were a candidate and you were on the bus meaning you got the same thing I did … airfare and contracts was for the winner yes me! And once the pageant ended my obligations and prizes were negotiated, again I don’t need to discuss that with you but will do it without hesitating with a judge just to prove you are wrong 3. No one has received any of the rewards except Puerto Rico . And she was a part of the scam. I can’t verify what she has and has not received because I don’t talk to her. I have conversations recorded were other contestants said they received nothing. ---- FALSE , I was the winner of the pageant the rewards were for me and the first runner up as far as I know the first runner up has received part of her prizes and has a promise date to received her balance ,,,,, I did too .. being a queen does not make me part of the staff 4. The first night at the pageant there was a fashion show, none of the girls are the same size Puerto Rico was the biggest of all the girls by far but managed a comfortably fit into all the clothes that belong to the designer.-----FALSE , yes I was the biggest by the way Im 300lbs not 400 NO the clothes didn’t fit me and you know that because you were the first to laugh when you saw the dress didn’t closed and was asked to go and walk the runway … Wich by the way I did and nailed without whinning about it because im a professional 5. Puerto Rico was announced as the home of the 2013 pageant on the stage at the pageant and the day after-----------Helloo!!!!! it was an international pageant locations changed each year , Puerto rico was option not the official venue and I didn’t took part of that decision ….. the 2012 pageant was complete and there was already promotional materials made that said 2013 Ms. Plus World Pageant in Puerto Rico posted to Facebook the same day and night. There was also already a hotel and city picked for the 2013 Puerto Rico pageant. ----- I don’t know anything about that I’m not part of the staff of the organization I was told PR was an option for the venue after the pageant ended …obviously not my fault again , tottally ridiculous to say there was a venue chosen The reason Puerto Rico won the 2012 Ms. Plus World pageant is because she was closet to Bahamas where this designers lives. The 1st runner was Trinidad and Tobago which was the next closet island to the Bahamas, and 2nd runner up was South Carolina which is the next location delegate. … FALSE --- OMG Get a map! , Bahamas is closer to the USA than it is to PR or Trinidad and Tobago, I have no prior relationship with any of the staff of the pageant and IM NOT PART OF THE STAFF Since releasing this statement the designer/Jaspher Knowles has deleted his facebook page and refused to contact anyone about his involvement. Anedra Walls also refuses comments about her involvement. ---- ------don’t know about this however I can understand , from day one you have been disrespectful to everyone , you have called names , have made racist comments, got in verbal altercation with other contestant and even your roommate on the coronation night had to leave your room and seek shelter on my room because you were so furious and yelled at her in a way she thought you were going to hit her ….. Let us also remember you had a verbal altercation on the parking lot with Helena the winner of the runway walk competition , and on December you when ballistic on group conversation on facebook… you are violent no one’s wants to speak to a violent person Bottomline , I need my picture and name remove from this I have no implication on this matter as I was only a candidate and im obviously a victim of this bully . This person took my picture and has been using my name without my consent to create videos and has harassed me since day one .

By the time you Google what that is and actually understand that ill be in bed sleep.
