TNT Management / Tina Norris "Jade Rathbun" - False Impersonator / LIAR!
On March 27, 2009 - We received the following email from a "Jade Rathbun" firstname.lastname@example.org -
Good Morning Lori,
My name is Jade Rathbun and I live in Miami Florida.
I recently worked for the CTaylor Agency out of Evansville Indiana, and have not been paid.
I see your business listed in Evansville, and thought you may be able to help answer my questions.
Every time I call I get a full voice mail, and she never returns my e-mails. Is she closed????? She owes me and my sister $700.00 and its been 4 months! Is there anyone else that I can talk to that has experienced the same problems?
Does your agency staff events and promotions too?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give me!
Of course, we get calls and emails like this often - so we responded to this poor young model with helpful information and facts to help her locate Theresa Catanese from The C. Taylor Agency to get paid.
"JADE" responded and was grateful for the information..... but something kept sounding "fishy" about it all. We even spoke to her on the phone. We noticed that she had a Los Angeles area phone number... be she told us she had recently moved to Miami and hadn't got a new number yet.
"JADE" kept on inquiring about TNT Management / Tina Norris.... even though Tina had nothing to do with the job that she said The C. Taylor Agency booked her for. It was like she kept on trying to get us to say certain things about TNT.... like her involvement with Theresa Catanese with C. Taylor.
She even made up a fake myspace account so she could see the SCAM Alliance's page and their postings on her.... They are a great group of Models that we have come to know who have been helping us state our case to other Models on myspace. She also posted a false report on The C. Taylor Agency online.
A little background info: We, our co-workers, associates, clients and families have been repeatedly harassed through email and phone calls by Tina Norris from TNT Management. She wants everyone to take their postings down off the internet for non-payment, and for ever associating her name with The C. Taylor Agency / Theresa Catanese. She and her "attorney" has called, emailed and threatened every one of us that they are going to sue us. (Which she has not done anything at all..... she claims she took one model to court and won... but the case was actually dropped immediately in court when they showed up.) We have sent Tina Norris 2 different Cease/Desist letters recently to demand that she stop harassing us and all involved.
TO THE POINT: Jade's IP address from her emails do not trace back to Miami.... The IP is from DeMoines, Iowa..... where the TNT Management office is located.
Jade's phone number..(818-859-9829 which we turned over to the local Police Dept.) which actually turned out to be a phone line in California.... is registered to TNT Management.
Tina Norris has made up this "fake model" JADE in order to get information out of us.... so she can TRY to get us to say something that she could use in court.
Hasn't she harassed everyone enough already? Now she has proved herself a LIAR. But we already knew that.
We are not sure that it was actually TINA on the phone with us... but it was definitely someone who she put up to it personally.
This has been turned over to law officials since this is clearly harassment/stalking/cyberbully behavior... The same behavior she clearly blames others for when she is the one that continues to harass and stalk others who speak out against her business practices.
We are currently working with other models and Agencies who are owed money by TNT Management / Tina Norris..... and each one of them have spoken about her being associated on some level with The C. Taylor Agency / Theresa Catanese. It is very interesting to us that Tina would use The C. Taylor Agency as "BAIT". In our opinion, and must we say once again... in our opinion.......this leads up to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are working together.
