To all who feel they've been victimized by TCTalent, Options Talent, or eModel (all variations on the same company using different names every time they're about to get shut down):

Ripoff Report below just came to us about an hour ago. With a few simple searches on the internet on public domain sites, we WERE ABLE TO CONFIRM THE FELONY BACKGROUND OF [information temporarily redacted], wife of one of TCT's biggest financial backers, and a felon himself.

Please note, Ripoff Report makes every effort to verify information on the site, however we cannot be responsible for the content on every single posting, and we rely on you, the consumer, to accurately report the facts surrounding your dealings with a particular business.

In some cases, however, and in TCT's in particular, we, the editorial staff, have posted information we KNOW to be accurate, including the large posting about the backgrounds of some of TCT's major executives and consultants that includes photos and other information.

We will be adding [information temporarily redacted] information to that report shortly.

Please read the report recently filed that exposes her criminal past below. [that information temporarily redacted]

Thanks,

Frank

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

Ooops! Did I miss something here? Something missing...?


Are you speaking of THIS Joan Randell...? Type this name into any Internet search engine and there will be plenty of information in the public domain to tell you about, not only Joan Randell, but about the antics of this company under all its guises and name changes. Type in Lou Pearlman, another heavyweight in TransConinental Talent (now Wilhelmina Talent), and the stuff there will really curl your hair.

Since the original report seems to have gotten lost here, anyone who has been victimized by these bozos can find out all you need to know. The truth is out there...look it up!

Below is just one of many press releases available on the World Wide Web: (I have included all names, phone numbers, and Internet links provided in the original article due to copyright laws)

ALLEGED UNETHICAL AND ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR PRACTICED
-CONSUMER ALERT-

ALLEGED UNETHICAL AND ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR
PRACTICED BY OPTIONS TALENT GROUP (OPTG.OB)

In the corporately controlled Los Angeles office of Options Talent, employees do not need to show any form of identification when filling out paperwork including but not limited to a Passport, Social Security card or any type of identification, while recruiting child and adults models. This causes a otential threat to both other employees and the community at large.

Over 10% of the voting stock of Options Talent Group is controlled by Joan Randell, wife of Cortes Randell, who has a lengthy criminal record for fraud and former President of e-Models, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Options Talent Group, and from which Options Talent Group is based.

Options Talent Group Chairman and CEO Mohamed Hadid filed for personal bankruptcy within the past five years after being sued and judgements handed down in which Hadid claimed personal bankruptcy and no assets, while being involved in Sector Communications and offshore companies.

A high-ranking member of the Royal Family of the United Arab Emirates filed the largest suit and receuived a $4 million-plus judgement against Hadid.

New talent employees, who may have no experience in the fashion world, are expected to work at daily Open Calls held across the country at 7:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday in more senior positions including evaluating models with no compensation.

The company has chosen to raise additional capital through franchisee sales of a new Sporting Division, which is similar to the Model Division, yet they focus on marketing youngsters through e-commerce.

Intenational franchisees in Singapore and several cities in the Philippines are opening to raise capital for the corporation and find more unwitting new faces who want to be a star and are willing to pay large sums to be added to an electronic database.

Complaints have been filed with the Southern California Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission, U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Service, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Cal-OSHA.

In a recent development since the passing of the laws that require that Chief Executive Officers and Chief Financial Officers of public companies certify their financials, Options Talent Group has designated $100,000.00 to buy back its stock which has a 52 week range of $.01 to approximately $.07.
