Please read this & Do your research. Anyone that is willing to go to court with me as I will be heading out on Monday to set out a court date to get Lorraine Nickel from IN MODEL MANAGEMENT charged on Criminal Charges for taking childrens pictures & stealing people's money.

First, start off by creating your own complaint file rather than responding to a complaint. This will bring her company down, and she will need to pay a load of money to remove the complaints. We really need to eliminate all potential families and children that may have there heart broken by this lady and her fake company. 

Please check out and print 
 Consumer beware list ( Ministry of Consumer Services Ontario ) of LORNIK PRODUCTIONS AS WELL AS IN MODEL MANAGEMENT. Post at all hotels in your area , and tell them that she is scamming people of there money and taking your pictures. She is risking the hotels business. Give them her full name, and both her addresses that she may register under such as 

460 BRANT ST , 3rd FLOOR 
BURLINGTON , ONTARIO

&

2368 LAKESHORE RD , 3rd FLOOR
OAKVILLE, ON
L6L 1H5

POTENTIAL PHONE NUMBER: 905-465-9775


All these state the name of the company ( as well as the old name of the company LORNIK PRODUCTIONS  she changed it so that no one can track her down using the ministry of consumer services ontario )

Contact Kijiji and inform them of her games. They will ban her and she will not be able to post her ads anymore. 

If you have any more ways we can stop her until we head out to court -- please add them 

-----------------------------------------------

Please visit http://www.ripoffreport.com and search these specific words ; Lornik , Lornik Productions , Lorraine Nickel , In Model Management.

This search will bring up over 60 complaint files made against this agency , as well as responses from Lorraine herself using derogatory remarks against her customers, no agent will call there customers by there first and last name and slander them online.

In our case we received the same remarks such as lunatics , motivated by our own greed , ....REALLY? etc. 

She uses names like MARN84 , miss gusto  etc online to make remarks pretending to be customers.

Her sentences always end in question marks or are half the time on caps lock. She defines everyone as lunatics , tells people to get jobs instead of "sitting in front of a computer all day". She threatens people with charges that do not fit the definition she defines them as , and constantly tells people there in "la la " land ...! She always seems to find different ways to get people to search other companies , just so she is no longer under the spotlight. She has , on many occasions , told us to research ripoffreport's website. 

She has been scamming people since 2007. 
For those who want there money back , want there childrens pictures back or taken off her filthy website please contact me ASAP or respond to this message. We will bring her down . It's about time we saw her behind bars.

poor Lorraine

AUTHOR: Student_Ottawa - (Canada)

i applogize but i thought you had brought your little one and not yourself. How old are you? if you are a minor you will need yiur parent or guardian to communicate with RCmP and you must be 18 to file small claims or signed by a guaruan. If you are afraid or do not feel safe with her having your personal information, seek law enforcement help.

These are all the addresses and phone numbers that over tanned , saggy teenager caught in an old ladies body has used( i posted two more in my first post ) This is the most recent but you can always call BBB ( which in model management is not accredited to - hmm i wonder why? maybe because its a fake company ??!! ) ( my text is not coming out well as i am writing this via ipad and this website is not compatie and ita making me write in top of words and i cannkt see spelling mistakes )

2349 Fairview St. Burlington, ON L7R 2E3 (905) 808-3067

Her name is Lorrain i wrote it as lauren in my last response. I am in contact with comsumer Protection and the person that is investigating . What Lorrainefails to understand is that all her assets ( if she has any - she possibly pays rent with the money stolen from teenagers savings and single mothers money spent on wanting to see there litle ones secure a good life that will pay off there college eduction - little did they know they were dealing with the devil in disguise ) . She will have everything seized and will be pushing a shopping cart full of empty bottles in downtown toronto and as saggy and wrinkly as she has always been and possibly even a bit over tanned like she always is , from standing outside a resteraunt during canadjan summer waiting for left overs from higher class people because KARMA IS A PAIN IN THE @&$)- !!!

matty

AUTHOR: Student_Ottawa - (Canada)

Okay , firstly matty.. you are passed the 10 day grace period but you can file a small claims in court . You can report to consumer protection and BBB.

Bare in mind you will not get money for "emotional" problems , half this world has emotional problems from complete jerks like lauren that prey on little children and there families. Do not bother even writing it in your claim or with court documents because they will not even issue you a cent from it . She caused alot of havoc to alot of families even people that live on 1000$ a month and they seized to mention emotional problems.

The digital camera was purchased at your own leisure and from my knowing of lauren and her idiotic ways , she does not ask of anyone to purchase a camera ( unless its a new thing she has caught onto and has asked u to send her the camera ) If you purchase a camera to take pics of your little one , so be it .. you will have to enjoy the camera. , because unless your willing to hand the camera over to lauren in court ao she can pay up for it ( which i highly doubt it will be addressed bg the judge since u bought it and that crook had no say in it and seeing as though you need pics for a modelling job and you would need a camera to take pics so its inevitable for u to have to buy a camera if u were looking for a modelling job ) . . You have no case when it comes to your emotional problems and camera purchase.

Your pictures should be returned to you that is why you report to the RCMP . She may be selling your pictures to someone . You are able to get your childs picture back.

In model management is very well known as a fraud with almost every consumer defenders. She will call you from unknown numbers , and once you catch her within the 10 day grace period she will act like a deer caught in headlights , she will play the financial crisis card , she will change her address , she will come on here and se hispanic names to cover her trail but everyone knows how her linguistics are. She is very aggressive , she will threaten to sue u for libel if she ever hears from u to ge u off her back and to scare u off . But its people like me that did not care about a word she said, and just today i got off the phone with consumer protection to finalize my report and there are alot of other things that i do not wish to speak about in which consumer protection told me not to speak of until she is charged for the second time under in model management since she changes the name of her hoaxed company that preys on little children , she also always changes her address hoping no one will track her down, luckily we have the government on our side . You should call the RCMP and tell them that you believe there is a lady soliciting pictures of ur child or yourself to the public and i wish to have my pocture back. File small claims and speak to legal aid and they will track her latest address for you as well as consumer protection .

Bare in mind that she will do lie and lie and lie because she is a pathological lier. Next time do not pay for any job up front, she is supposed to pay u .. !

Another Victim of the scam artist 'In Model Management"

AUTHOR: mettygirl - (Canada)

Hello. I am another victim of the hoax agency called ''In Model Management". I went to this so-called audition in the summer of 2011 at hotel close to my area, where they got my hopes up, making it sound legit, only to let my hopes down, and to take my money and information. They had my personal information, my credit card, and other information. I signed papers, and was very excited, only to find out that they are a complete fake. After this meeting, a few weeks later, I got a call, asking for more photos, and than later on saying how there was an audition that was happening, but I never got picked "of course". I spent money not only on the agency, but I also bought a digital camera specifically so I could take more photos for them. I want to take them to court, because I want compensation not only for my time, but for the money spent on the agency, and the camera and also for emotional reasons. I would also like my photos back and all personal information removed. Here is my contact information for anyone interested in taking this so-called agency to court with me.

More Helpful Info - PLEASE READ- LORRAINE READ THIS AS WELL

AUTHOR: INMODELMANAGEMENTSCAM - (Canada)

For everyone that has had Lorrain talk back to them after cancelling a contract, or in court via face to face  - email - over the phone ( like many of us ) . Please add things that she has said , or written. She seems to have such a short list of words that she uses over and over again. Her mental dictionary consists of around 10 words. I have added some already , please add more if you would like so we can have a good laugh. We are not trying to bully her, we just want to show her how her attempt at calling us people with no lives and that the females wait at home all day for there husbands. Lorraine , what exactly did you study? Show us proof . We demand it. We would like to go through that portfolio that had all the 'leads' !! Remember , the one you would not allow anyone to go through. 

These are the steps for everyone that has been scammed ( I say scammed meaning she takes registration fees for nothing - you will never hear from her again and you will never get chosen by her "clients" as those "clients" seize to exist ,  by Lorraine Nickels of IN MODEL MANAGEMENT , OR LORNIK PRODUCTIONS INC . If she suddenly starts communicating with you , ask for proof of her company recruiting a successful model (movie , magazine shots - with the proper credentials ). Proof of her company's success, proper addresses to her company , and legit phone numbers. If you choose to cancel the "service purchase" and you are within 10 days of the purchase date , please continue reading - ready carefully.

( PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM ONLY SUGGESTING DOING THIS - I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL NOR WILL I BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING YOU WILL DO. I AM SUGGESTING SERVICES THAT ARE PROVIDED TO US BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT TO AIDE US IN FIGHTING BACK FRAUDULENT SERVICES, I AM JUST SHEDDING LIGHT ON THIS TO HELP THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO OR ARE IN SHOCK FROM THIS COMPANY'S SCAM )

1. MINISTRY OF CONSUMER SERVICES ONTARIO - FILING A COMPLAINT WITH THE MINISTRY 

a. 10 day cooling off period - you have all rights to cancel and receive your refund within 15 days ( within 10 days of sending IN MODEL MANAGEMENT / LORRAINE NICKEL a REGISTERED LETTER - even if she does not pick it up ( it is still cancelled - since it is registered ) .

b. Review your rights  to find out whether you have a complaint that falls under Ministrys authority.

c. Write a complaint letter to the business to see if they can resolve the problem for you. Remember to keep a copy of your letter and proof of delivery.  It is also a good idea to keep records of any other communication you have with the business.

d. If you are unable to resolve the complaint with the company, contact the ministry for help. You can either call or send a letter - i prefer letters:

Ministry of Consumer Services 
Consumer Protection Branch
5775 Yonge St. Suite 1500
Toronto, ON M7A 2E5
Fax: 416-326-8665
E-mail: consumer@ontario.caPlease

Note: Include any supporting documentation, such as copies of correspondence between you and the company, with your complaint.

OR CALL SUZZANNE LIZOTTE, due to the privacy of this website I am unable to add her phone number. But she can easily be found if you google her name and add MINISTRY OF CONSUMER SERVICES ONTARIO. She has a toronto number. Call her - as she is going after this company for the second or third time. 

2. BBB ( BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU )


Head down to BBB of Ontario, and they will try to mediate between yourself and Lorraine Nickel.  THEY WILL NOT BRING BACK YOUR MONEY. BUT THEY WILL HALT ALL HER REVENUES AS SHE WILL BE LISTED AS A SCAM COMPANY ON MANY WEBSITES. 

PLEASE GOOGLE " What does BBB CANADA Do" 

3. PRIVACY COMMISSIONER (FOR PICTURES GIVEN TO IN MODEL MANAGEMENT / POSTED PICTURES YOU WANT OFF THE WEBSITE)

For those who want there children's pictures off the website inmodels.ca ( like I have seen in the complaints of mothers wanting there children's pictures off ) , please contact the privacy commissioner. Explain to them the situation, and ask that they contact Lorraine - that you no longer want to do business with her. If you received a refund , and the "contract" is cancelled - ask to return all your pictures and the removal of all your information including your address from her files and ask for it to be destroyed whilst being supervised by a court official. 

http://www.priv.gc.ca/index_e.cfm


4. SMALL CLAIMS - for refunds never received. 

FILE COURT PAPERS - Lorraine will eventually respond as she is scared of anything to do with courts since she will face hefty fines. She will pay for the court costs as well if found guilty of fraud , which she most likely would be. This time add her mother & father in the court papers as they are in the game with her. Make sure to do your research before serving her and her parents. There is a fee for that , in which you can bypass and she will eventually be given the bill. They will give you her proper address, her name ( and her family name ) - and her parents names ( i believe they will give you more information as well ). Remember at any time you need help with that to seek proper legal help, LEGAL AID is a good place to do so. You can also go to the nearest community centre and they will advise you to where you can get the help you need to fill out the paperwork. Once your done - serve her & her musketeers. 

5. FILE A COMPLAINT ON ANY WEBSITE YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON THAT HAS "IN MODEL MANAGEMENT" name on it !!! 




Conclude with a Lorraine Nickel quote ".."claiming" victim status.. i can sue you for libel" --> lool joke of the century!
and another quote
"why do you think modelling is free???" - because it is Lorraine . Your only supposed to take your 20% of our earnings. NOTHING ELSE. You are supposed to recruit only people you are 100% sure will land you leads with your "clients". You on the other hand took everyone so you would scam them, your mother mentioned that the 20$ registration at the front desk would be refunded if we get rejected - hahaha - as if - nobody got rejected . Your mother used the same excuse when someone asked her, I was there - heard everything. Person: "why do i have to pay registration fees" , you OLD MOM " soccer is not free for kids- its the same thing ". No hun, in soccer nobody will get commission - this is entertainment for our kids. What your offering is a job- so why does one have to pay money to get a job?  You found the wrong person to debate this with. 

Why do you always make different accounts online and and not always sign your name at the end of the letter with Lorraine. So far I have seen ( on this website alone ) , Sam , Lorraine , IN MODEL TEAM , The In Team , Lornik Productions LTD , Casting ( try losing your caps lock and question marks as we are onto your online linguistics ) . Why is it that you keep calling people out for using different names, when you are doing the same. You once mentioned " do you really know my name , my "real" name? " .. why would someone not want to give there real name if they really do have a professional company with professional values and ethics ? I smell FRAUD & SCAM ... oh wait thats just you Lorraine. You seem to keep saying we hide behind our identities, and you are doing the same as well . Pathetic , pathological lier

How to treat customers professionally

AUTHOR: INMODELMANAGEMENTSCAM - (Canada)

Miss. Nickel this is for you . This is coming off RipOffreport's website , this is exactly how you can allow people to believe you are a real company. Try making your story sound a bit more legit.

"If you find that a complaint has been filed against you, the best thing you can do is to post a rebuttal and tell your side of the story. Don't get mad, and don't make threats ( SOMETHING YOU ALWAYS DO LORRAIN  ). Get creative . Explain your side of the story. Explain what your company has done (or is willing to do) to make things right."

"If you think a report is phony, demand that the customer provide proof that they actually did business with you (by posting a copy of a receipt, etc.) If the customer doesnt respond, this will pretty much be the end of the matter.Post the names and contact information for favorable references who can testify to the high quality of your business add contact names and phone numbers - (not emails as anyone can make an email and act as though they are several individuals ( you would know much about that ) ). Provide a list of all your employees or your "team" as you have called them. Provide us with reasons of why you do not have your address or phone number provided to customers. Provide a summary of any awards your company has won. Offer a link to any outside resources which provide positive information about you and your business."  

Lorrain has claimed that her "clients" are who choose you for modelling jobs. That nothing is 100% in the "industry".   What if nobody has ever received a call to be seen by your so called "clients"?? Therefore, there are no real clients .. now are there... ?? Could you  provide us with clients that have chosen any of your models? We need proof that these were real models working for you. At least 4 models and several leads in that one year since you have a whole team of agents, and are charging hundreds of dollars we deserve to know who these people are that you are focusing on the most rather than us. We are also paying clients! Why would you choose us in the first place if you do not see potential in us, but do so to scam us of our money. 

This way , we might start believing you . 

We trust that you will find this in order - something you say alot - maybe because you have been told this waay to many times by Consumer Protection and court orders. 

NOTE: another thing Lorraine always says " .... seriously???" - " you sicken me " .. many more to come as we are on your every comment you write all over the internet.
