Charlene Craig, the Owner/President knew that and used several people out of the 40 people who she lied and cheated to get them pay her to participate and compete in her SCAM of a PAGEANT and to promote her first time TEN PAGEANTS IN ONE pageant ( 10 pageants in one).

She SCAMMED each and everyone one of us out thousands of dollars , just to be able to participate in the pageant with NO RECIEPTS and listed all kinds of GREAT PRIZES ONLINE and then the week of the pageant DELETED THEM.

She posted :
Cosmetic Surgery Package, Dental Cosmetic Surgery Package, Tanning Package, Spa Package, etc. Even the prized she didn't delete, like ROSES, and Personalized Crown Case, etc still were not awarded. The prizes that were awarded were ebay trash trinkets and the jewerly was also found on ebay for under $20!!! After research of course!


We didn't even get ROSES or get to take the WINNER'S WALK DOWN THE RUNWAY!

NOBODY DID!!!!!

SHE CHEATED EVERYONE BY MAKING US PAY CASH ONLY THE DAY BEFORE THE PAGEANT AT THE HOTEL FOR TICKETS --- OUTRAGEOUS PRICES $35 per person for one night and $25 per person for the second night and you HAD to purchase them NO REFUNDS whether you made it to the second night OR NOT.

NO REFUNDS FOR ANYTHING!! CASH FOR REQUIRED TANK TOPS at the last minute for the OPENING NUMBER, which nobody knew about.

Two weeks before the pageant she made us all make costumes to describe our TITLE THAT WE HAD TO BUY, my division was $675.00. The Ms. Category was $675 also, along with the Senior Miss and the Miss and Petite Miss, the other 5 divisions ranged from $575 down to $375 and the Little Miss. She even created a MR division to get another group of $675's !!

When it came to her paying the winners--- SHE JUST DIDN'T!
She AVOIDED ALL CALLS, AND WHEN SHE DID ANSWER SHE LIED OVER AND OVER and OUTRAGEOUSLY OVER AGAIN!!!

YET, Charlene took her best friend, who ironically won her division, and her other best friends daughter won, amazingly enough, every category and the title too! And SHE TOOK THEM TO NY a few times for MAGAZINE MODELING SHOOTS and all the cosmetic surgery went to them, and prizes that were online that STRANGELY DISAPPEARED= CHARLENE'S TWO FRIENDS!!

She told even 4 yr old little girls mother that there would be talent agents and scouts there so she would pay to compete so she could sing and be discoverd.

She "played" just about every single person by digging into what they wanted to get out of it and then told them what they wanted to hear and she is still doing it. She made a ton of money off of the hopes, dreams, and legitimate real honest life-changing reasons!!
CALL THE NH ATTY GENERAL BEFORE YOU GET INVOLVED WITH HER PLEASE!!!!

Charlene Craig is a thief!

AUTHOR: Ally - (Canada)

I agree whole heartedly! This woman has straight up stolen money from me! I gave her 9 months notice that I couldn't not compete in her pageant because of loss of work. I explained to her I had no money and could not afford to compete. She blocked and deleted me from contacting her and refuses to give me any of my money back, even though I did not receive ANYTHING from this woman. She has hundreds of dollars that she has stolen from me and refuses to give back, what is worse is that I never signed anything for this woman and she never told me that the money I paid her was non refundable. I didn't get a crown a sash not even a letter in the mail.

I got NOTHING for the money I paid! NOTHING! She is a scam artist! I informed the police of my situation and I also informed the better business bureau, the thing is I am unemployed and she has the last little bit of money I have. Even after I pleaded with her telling her that was the money I needed to put food on my table she still just blocked me and ignores me and refuses to give me my money back. She is heartless and cruel! If anyone can help me get my money back from this cruel lady please help ! and please do not let her scam you, I've talked to past contestants and they all say the same thing, this pageant is a scam, she's good at getting your money! Do not do this pageant!
