*Consumer Comment: Orlando Federal Judge declares no Jurisdiction in Pearlman's lawsuit againt Rip-off Report
Following dreams of a 13 yr old to become a model. We went to the casting call they said she was run way model material and I know she is but they set up a phone confrence with her father, mother and her they told her father it would be a one time fee upfront of 995.00 to place her on the network and she would have plenty of job offers in the near future because there were only 3 clients that matched her description.
There would also be a monthly charge of 19.95 for internet updates and acess. We got our final interview in July this was with the talent coordinator who said that we needed professional photos taken for our portfolio so Pam Rifner our talant coordinator set up a time 9:00am on Saturday August the 23rd with a photographer in Greencastle recommended by Wilhelmina. At a cost of 590.00 at which I had to fill out the payment agreement and fax it back closser to the above date. This included our debt card information.
We were instructed on what outfits we needed to get and did so. I tried for two weeks prior to the photo shoot to get a hold of someone to but we had no luck but we knew our account would be hit for the full amount if we didn't show up. Instead They were the no shows.
We then knew something was wrong. Called to ask questions and found out our 13 year old did not exist in there network we have asked for a full refund due to no work being offered and when it was they wanted us to pay over 3000.00 for each job oppertunity. We have canceled the debt cards and had to put stops on anything comming through. Now phone call will not be retured nor will they answer the phone. Please help if you can to get our money back and to warn others about Wilhelmina scouting network or what ever name they are now using.
