SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I have been hired by TNT Management 10 or 12 times during the past two years as a spokesman for a variety of products at stores such as WalMart, Target, and local grocery stores. I have also been hired to distribute products at events like NASCAR and music festivals.

If you've ever heard or read anything bad about TNT on the internet, don't believe it. Several friends of mine and I have done a bunch of jobs for them and have always been paid on time and in full. In fact, a girlfriend of mine got paid a little extra for doing some extra work at our most recent job.

Tina was awesome to work with. She knows her stuff and answered all of our questions and even gave us directions on how to get to one of our jobs over the phone when we got lost.

If you ever have a chance to work for TNT, do it. I can't say enough good things about their professionalism and their treatment of us.

Thanks.

8) Molli Funk has hand written illiterate letters claiming that Bob Holliday owns TNT Management and titled it as a Cease and Desist, then she posted her documents on Rip Off Report.(IF IT WAS SO ILLITERATE, WHY DID YOU RECENTLY COPY AND PASTE MOST OF IT AND SEND A BOGUS CEASE/DESIST LETTER OUT TO MY MODELS AND CLIENTS??? SEE MOLLI'S CEASE/DESIST LETTER HERE:)
Feb. 18, 2009
Re: Cease & Desist Letter
Dear Mr. Holliday, Tina Norris,
I am sending you this cease/desist letter to not only you, but your client Tina Norris, TNT Management in Des Moines Iowa.
As indicated per our phone conversations and emails, if you have grounds for legal action then do so with the guidelines set forth by the State of California.
Please refrain from further harassing emails, phone calls, or postings on RIPOFFREPORT (As a attorney that looks very unprofessional on your firm) or any other forms of communication unless it is with legal counsel in the state which I reside.
We are not currently in any legal case with you or your client Tina Norris/TNT MANAGEMENT at this time, however yours & Tina Norriss harassing emails, calls and unwarranted postings are unwanted unless it is done legally. Mr. Holliday, you of all people should know this. The only harassing, slander, and badgering I feel is coming from your client Tina Norris/TNT Management.
I also do not see anything on the RIPOFF forum ragarding my company or me for you to even respond or post on about me or any others.
There is nothing libelous, defaming EVER written about Tina Norris or TNT Management other than the FACT that C TAYLOR AGENCY did business under the TNT name. That is what we were told via Theresa Catanese, and what I perceived visually with the TNT MYSPACE WEBSITE/TNT WEBSITE which coincided with what I was told, as well as others. Which was taken down within a day when I mentioned this to you via our phone conversation.
Finally Mr. Holliday, I question your potential ethics and potential conflict of interest since you are part owner of said agency, TNT Management/Tina Norris. I have answered all of your emails and calls with respect, so for your client to post the email sent to me on RIPOFFREPORT from your firm with your signature was another form of harassment, and very unprofessional and uncalled for. I will be sending it to the Iowas Bar Association for review. Again, I am not responsible for others opinions/thoughts/moods/ethics or what their opinion is of FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
Fondly, Molli Funk

These documents came AFTER Sullivan And Ward wrote Molli Funk 2 Cease and Desist Letters for writing defamatory comments on Event Speak stating that "TNT Pockets Model Money" Under your myspace name "Scam Alliance." Provide your Cease Letters. (CEASE AND DESIST LETTERS ARE ONLY THREATS OF WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO IF SOMEONE DOES NOT COMPLY. THEY ARE NOT FROM A JUDGE OR COURT... AND DO NOT LEGALLY BIND ANYONE TO ANYTHING.
WHY DON'T YOU TRY TO PROVE THAT WE HAVE ANYTHING TO PERSONALLY DO WITH SCAM ALLIANCE? BECAUSE YOU CANNOT?
MY LETTER TO YOU TELLING YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE IS BELOW. I DID NOT HAVE TO TITLE MY LETTERS "CEASE AND DESIST" TO PRETEND THEY MEAN ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT I MEANT THEM TO SAY. THIS IS THE LETTER I WROTE TO YOU DEMANDING THAT YOU CEASE COMMUNICATION.)

subject Notice from Lori Rosas
mailed-by gmail.com

Tina-
Seriously, what have I ever done to YOU???
I sent out ONE email to a few people ONE time... a long time ago...as requested by an nvestigative reporter doing a story on Theresa Catanese. You then totally misunderstood the entire email, tried to intimidate me with your legal "jargin", and was not very nice.

I responded with a courteous email explaining that I was not accusing you of anything, and just in case someone else who had received the email ALSO misunderstood what I wrote, I sent out an email to everyone stating that you were not the one in question, but it was a FACT that
Theresa had been telling people that she and you were working together closely... and some people thought Theresa was actually TNT Mgmt. and might be mistaken or confused by her claims. ( I carbon copied you on this as well).

I am totally offended that you wrote an email to Molli that stated that I am somehow involved in harassing you, your business, family or associates. I have never spoken to you other than the one email... and have never spoken to anyone else associated with you or your family or business.
I have never posted anything on the internet that says anything bad about you, either.
Yes, I have personally questioned your involvement and relationship to Theresa, and often wonder why SHE is not the one you are going after.

I perceive your threatening emails as harassment. I am also requesting that you immediately stop involving ME in YOUR mess - unless you can somehow provide me with solid factual proof that
I am involved in your accusations. Being good acquaintances with Molli... and even barely knowing Chadwick and not even speaking to him for over a year does not automatically make me involved in anything. Even if I were best friends with them both... it still does not make
me guilty of any involvement.

This is the last and only email you will receive from me.
I have never wasted my time on you, and do not intend to start.

Lori Rosas

Gordy, Do you really exist? If so step up to the plate and put in your full name. We highly doubt you will do so since we "suspect" you as another alia's name Tina uses, LOL, LOL.

 

I wonder who this little Gordy is, or big Gordy should I recant, lol.

 

Is Gordy really you?  You dont seem to remember your real name, or maybe that is just your mental state of mind to have so many different names to confuse clients & staff when they call your corporate headquarters, lol. Just asking "GORDY"

tina norris is the real crook here

AUTHOR: Lupe - (U.S.A.)

HOW DO I KNOW IT'S YOU? BECAUSE YOU COPY AND PASTE THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND ALL YOUR LITTLE WEBSITES, WELL, LIKE I SAID, YOU WANNA MESS WITH ME? BRING IT ON BITCH! I'M TIRED OF YOU AND TERESA CANTANESE WITH C TAYLOR AGENCY! YOU ARE BOTH LIARS, SCAM ARTISTS AND THIEVES!
WHO THE FUCK DID I EVER BULLY? WHO THE FUCK DID I EVER THREATEN OR HARASS? WHO WAS I EVER A NIGHTMARE TO WORK WITH? LET'S SPEAK THE TRUTH AND THE FACTS HERE, SHALL WE!!
The facts are this: my wife and I were approached by C Taylor Agency and TNT Casting/management/talent whatever many different names this evil lady works under, back in October of 2006. My wife and I did several jobs for these evil women who both were very quick to take credit for giving us the work, and both were quick to ask for paperwork to bill the client. However, neither one of these evil persons wanted to take the responsibility for paying either one of us. So, out of frustration of having constantly called and emailed about my money, just to be ignored and not have any of my emails or calls returned, I posted ads on CL and Event Speak for people to beware of these evil women. ONLY then were my emails replied to. This evil person Tina Norris claims to be so honest and reputalbe, but she constantly ignored my emails, hiding behind her assistant, at the time. Only when I posted the TRUTH about her trying to cheat us out of our money, did she email me about my check. We did the work in October, we were send paperwork that needed to be filled out IN JANUARY, before we were to be paid. My wife was paid maybe three months later. I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE ANY PAYMENT FOR ANY WORK I DID FOR THESE EVIL WOMEN. Now, Tina Norris with TNT Mgmt, and Teresa Cantanese with C Taylor Agency, who is the real criminal here? I never lied about any of the lies and scams pulled, and tried to pull, with me and my wife. You are both liars, scam artists, crooks, evil, and very bad women and should be stopped. I posted this and everything else I have ever posted about you evil women so that people would beware and stay very far away from you. Anyone who has anything to do with either one of you runs the risk of being victimized by your lies, scams, and evil-doing. Come on, Tina, I still have every single email you ever sent me, especially the ones stating that if I didn't stop asking for my money that I so rightly deserved that you would sue my and garnish my wages for life. I am not scared of either one of you, because I have God and all that is GOOD on MY side. I will not bow down to your threats and be like all the other wimps who recanted what they said, which was the TRUTH, just because they wanted to get paid. NO! You need to be stopped, and the people deserve to know the TRUTH!!

Jane Doe warns others on Craigslits about Tina Norris TNT MGMT

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

Mystery online attacker bedevils Des Moines company

Source: DesMoinesRegister
Date: 08/11/08
By: Jeff Eckhoff
Link: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080...



Officials of a Des Moines company that supplies models and product demonstrators
for nationwide promotional events claim that a mysterious Internet poster has
cost them $500,000 in business with negative comments and allegations over the
past two years.

But they aren't sure whom to sue.

"We don't know her name, and we don't know her physical address," said Robert
Holliday, an attorney for TNT Management. "I've been a lawyer for a long time.
This is the weirdest thing I've ever seen."

An expert says such situations have exploded over the past decade as Internet
traffic migrated from large, content-policing Internet portals such as
CompuServe and America Online to a slew of smaller providers.

"It's always been possible to sue someone who is slamming you, but what you have
is a right without a remedy," said Michael Fertik, a Harvard University law
graduate who founded ReputationDefender.com to help victims of cyber-libel fight
back.

"You've got a right to information that the Web site is not obligated to keep,"
he said. "And it may take you two years of legal proceedings to get this
information. By then, your company's out of business."

TNT officials say they have been plagued by anonymous comments from "John Doe
and/or Jane Doe" on Craigslist and other Web sites that allege the models it
hired routinely have problems getting paid.

Court papers say the online attacks have been perpetrated by someone in
Minnesota with the e-mail address Stephybaby1985@yahoo.com. Court battles in
four states over efforts to unlock the poster's identity culminated last month
at a hearing in which the unnamed woman was questioned by telephone.

The 21-year-old college student, when contacted by e-mail by The Des Moines
Register, said she was a former model whose online criticisms of TNT were
accurate and defensible. She did not confirm her real name.

"I don't think they're actually going to sue me for anything," she said.
"They're just mad at me for trying to get my money. ... It's just more of their
bullying."

Holliday denied the alleged nonpayment.

"We will find this person, and we will give her an opportunity in a court of law
to prove that," he said.

Court papers say the anonymous comments posted on TNT help-wanted ads and
industry bulletin boards have made it difficult for the company to do business.
TNT also blames the woman for repeatedly "flagging" its Craigslist ads under a
process that automatically leads to their removal after a certain number of
complaints.

Documents say that TNT was forced to advertise jobs without using the company
name, and that would-be business partners backed out when they learned of
previous criticism.

In another prominent Internet case, a federal judge in Connecticut recently
rejected pleas by "John Doe 21" that he be allowed to remain anonymous in a
lawsuit filed by two female Yale University students. The women alleged that
they were harassed over a two years by postings on AutoAdmit.com that purported
to describe their sexual history and encouraged posters to stalk one of the
women with a cell phone camera.

The woman connected to Stephybaby1985@yahoo .com, who said she is a Marine
officer candidate, said her postings about TNT Management were intended to warn
the public about unsavory business practices.

"Other promo models need to know that this company is doing this, and they need
to protect themselves," she said. "Independent contractors aren't protected by
labor laws in the United States. The only way to protect yourself from companies
like this is just to not work for them."

The woman lost a bid to keep her identity secret. Iowa District Judge Eliza
Ovrom recently ordered two Internet companies and the U.S. Postal Service to
turn over information that should identify her.

Privacy concerns "cannot shield a person from the consequences of allegedly
tortious conduct," Ovrom wrote. "A person allegedly making false comments such
as those involved here cannot expect to remain anonymous indefinitely."

Holliday, TNT's attorney, hopes it's the first step to erase the damage, or at
least stop its spread.

"The Internet is a wonderful thing if it's used properly," he said. "But if you
want to cause somebody some problems and hide, that's the way to do it. That's
really not what it was intended to do."

Great Advise Tweeter!

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

Since TNT is international she MUST be licensed & bonded in New York, Florida, California, Texas in the talent industry. When advertising on Craigslist she is to post her licence number on all her advertisements for that particular state. Look up the laws in the states which you reside. I seen where she used a model in California, which is big on surety bonds & being a licensed talent agency. Is she licensed for any of the above states?
