Fraudster alert! Financially psychologically distressed Serge Soussan and his wife Deanne Landsberg and their loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes all collectively doing business as My Blankee Inc. Unreliable baby blanket and accessories vendor that does not pay salespeople and sales representatives what they are owed even Serge Soussan’s own sister! Get your baby blankets and accessories elsewhere!
Serge Soussan and his wife Deanne Landsberg own My Blankee Inc a Los Angeles based manufacturer of baby blankets and accessories. Once the baby blanket supplier to Hollywood celebrities featured in People Magazine, the company has declined since its good times a decade ago due to mismanagement and corporate arrogance exacerbated by the intractable personal and marital problems of Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg.
My Blankee Inc staff is led Serge Soussan’s loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes who enable Serge Soussan’s fraudulent conduct. [continued below]....
While Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg vacation at Big Bear and Tahiti and San Francisco and spend extravagantly to keep up with the Joneses, they employ that sneaky and creepy modus operandi utilized by all fraudsters to twist the simple standard written sales commission agreements so as to read exceptions and interpretations that justify My Blankee Inc not paying rightfully earned commissions to the hard working salespeople whose efforts keep them in their Mercedes Benzes. Many salespeople have come and gone as have many vendors and customers, disgusted by the arrogance and neglectfulness of Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg dba My Blankee Inc. Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes stand by and say nothing in exchange for employment and generous compensation from Serge Soussan and his wife Deanne.
This pattern of misconduct has now reached its apex in the defrauding by Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg dba My Blankee Inc of his very own sister her very own sister-in-law Veronique Soussan who labored hundreds and hundreds of hours to help her brother to try to recover hundreds of lost customers and to bring in new customers both domestic and foreign. Diligent efforts and countless hours resulted in her even developing significant foreign customers for her brother whose sizable prospective orders could recover and restore My Blankee Inc.
Both Serge Soussan and his wife Deanne have engaged in a systematic pattern of screwing Veronique Soussan out of her rightfully earned commissions. Misinformation and misreporting of sales to keep Veronique in the dark, emotional outbursts instead of getting down to business. And when Veronique attempted to assert her rights under her agreement with Serge Soussan, his wife Deanne Landsberg accused her of harassment and threatened to call the police. Serge Soussan screamed at her, “I don’t give a s**t about you! I won’t pay you! You don’t need the money.” Serge Soussan even conjured up a panic attack and a heart attack so that he could avoid his obligations and his responsibilities, leaving Veronique Soussan in great difficulty in servicing a large export customer she had developed over more than a year.
This extreme level of ongoing misconduct indicates that this is a company that should not be relied upon by any serious salesperson or sales representative involved at any level of the baby blanket and accessories business, that My Blankee Inc cannot remain a dependent supplier for long given that nobody will sell for Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg and their loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes.
My Blankee Inc is in serious financial distress and cannot be depended on to execute any significant orders on a timely basis. Even the simplest export forms and process items seem to be beyond the capability of staff. No salesperson should work even five minutes for Mr Serge Soussan and Mrs Deanne Landsberg and their company My Blankee Inc or with Mr Antonio Astudillo and Ms Olga Reyes who run My Blankee Inc for them on a day to day basis.
You will work your heart out for these terrible people and their company only to be screwed, cheated, or even terminated when the time comes for you to be paid your commissions that you have coming to you. Anyone who seriously considers placing orders with such a dysfunctional company in such financial distress should think twice!
In the case of Veronique Soussan, she joined My Blankee Inc on January 6, 2012 and executed a contract with Serge Soussan on January 11, 2012. She received very modest compensation in 2012 and 2013 and never received an accounting of the sales that she generated in order to determine if she was being paid her rightfully earned commissions. And she did more than sell for her brother and sister-in-law. Veronique spent three months also reorganizing the company website so that she could increase sales that had been sabotaged by a poorly conceived website. Her work was so good that the slower moving full time graphics designer left the company because she was not needed. Being an apparel industry veteran with over 25 years of experience, Veronique added value to My Blankee Inc in many many ways across the business.
Thousands of emails she diligently sent to hundreds and hundreds of customers who had stopped doing business with the company. And her efforts paid off, helping My Blankee Inc get back into the game. When Veronique arrived to help recover the wholesale customer website, there were 25 active customers of various sales revenue generation levels, when she was terminated there were 670. Meanwhile the company was wasting hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars on information technology and website building projects of dubious value.
It was at the time Veronique began to earnestly seek her rightfully earned commissions that her fraudster brother Serge Soussan terminated her on February 4, 2014, also saying that she should take her orders and start her own company. Then realizing that she would do exactly that, he begged her to come back, but when Veronique presented a commercially reasonable proposal prepared with the aid of an experienced business turnaround and crisis management expert, Serge Soussan was not interested in any arrangement that placed any level of discipline and accountability on him or gave any security for Veronique as to payments for commissionable sales that she generated. At that meeting on February 14, 2014, Serge Soussan’s outrageous conduct was validated and enabled and supported by his loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes. Serge Soussan then closed down Veronique’s company email box and access to the company wholesale website after having successfully manipulated her into delaying her new company organization efforts and keeping her major customers in his universe in hopes that she would feel sorry for him and return to the fold and let him screw her over some more.
Serge Soussan is not interested in managing My Blankee Inc on a professional basis and neither of his loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo or Olga Reyes has any interest in this either so long as they get their paychecks and their pay raises even if these come on the backs of screwed over salespeople and sales representatives.
A customer lost for two years whom Veronique returned to the company wrote to her after her termination, “I am very surprised! I am very sorry! I hate to see you go. You have always been so great to me and I have always appreciated your professional and great customer service! Thanks!”
My Blankee Inc is in financial distress as a result of the mismanagement and misconduct of Serge Soussan and Deanne Landsberg and their loyal lieutenants Antonio Astudillo and Olga Reyes, so Veronique is taking her loyal customers elsewhere. But she has been screwed out of tens of thousands of dollars of commissions that Serge Soussan has either wasted or diverted to the benefit of his insatiable wife Deanne Landsberg who accuses people of harassment when they seek the payment of their commissions rightfully earned. And therefore Veronique issues this warning to other good meaning people not to waste a moment of time and energy for a company like this and people like this.
