Prom & Pageant Expositions, LLC Enterteenment Fraud, lack of payment on services provided Boston, Massachusetts
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Wallis Amanda Mills-Visse...a reply...
A request for payment on services provided for the revised show was presented and the Director/President Amanda Wallis Mills, indicated via email that payment would be provided. While I thought my case was an isolated case, it appears that all individuals who provided services for the development, management, and marketing of the show, have not been compensated and the Director has either not responded or has made promises that the payment due would be provided. Many of the individuals involved were young interns and students, who depended on the salaries to fund their future education.
While this is a serious case of fraud and misrepresentation of the performance opportunity, the other important issue to highlight is that Amanda Wallis Mills is taking advantage of the talent of young performers to raise the sponsorship funds needed to finance the show's production. If funds were raised, they were not utilized to compensate the staff and contract individuals and businesses which included the office staff, videographers, photographers, marketing, talent management personnel and production interns. She is therefore, using the young performers to front her scam operation.
Amanda Mills has other reports on this site and one is filed under a different name, Amanda Visse. The photo, however, verifies it is the same person. The pattern is similar...she creates an opportunity, lures people in, raises funds through fees and sponsorships, and then cancels the event. It is a slick system, and the initial presentation is strong and believable. The Boston case involves many individuals, both adults and children.
