Mr. Hodges of the talent people is a crook and a thief. I went to fred in June of 04. I wanted to be a writer. He asked for 400 dollars up front. (this was a sign)I did not have it. I asked him what is the least he would take. He said $75. I paid him the money.
Fred told me that he would get me gigs to pay off the debt. Two weeks later I did not hear from fred. I called him, he said he need more money. I told him I did not have it, he said since he had already sent my stuff out that if anybody called he would call it a dead issue. (fred never sent anything out) In Aug I paid him the 200 dollars and I did 2 gigs for the remainder of the money I owed. Fred lied to me ever since.
In Dec I found out that he had a rape charge against him. I was supposed to have meetings with him, but end up doing his personal business for him. I did 2 gigs in Nov. and was never paid for them. I am still waiting on my money for those promos. Also while in his office he decides that we needed some dope to smoke and lights it up in front of me. I left his office.
While in his office helping fred out in finding people to do promos which he nevers pays his people for. I looked in my file and found all my work. He told me he sent them out, but never did. I had to start my own business because of this.
I took fred to the bbb in hoping to get my refund, the money he owes, and all my materails in his office. He told the bbb that I need money and making up stories about him. He clearly voided his contract and that he lied to me about everything. He held my dreams for hostage until I paid him for it.
If I have to I will ruin his business, and take him to court. He his a dope head and I crook. If you have any comlaints please help me bring him down so he can not do this to anyone else. Please take him to the bbb.
