Alexandra Townsend is a So-Called "Film Finance Expert. In reality she is a very good Con, Shill, and Grifting Pro. She is the Ultimate player. Why? Because her Scam threw us and our partners and other people we know way off.

She pretends she is a single mom with 5 kids while she is dating these two guys "Serge Rodnunsky" and "Mark". Both noted Film Finance Scammers in their own right. Please Google. Then She refers people she meets to either one of these guys depending on who she is sleeping with at the time. She promises that either of these guys can get you a credit line for your movie and that she has friends that have gotten one. BIG BIG LIE!!

Then she will have you meet with either one of these men and they will charm you up and tell you how they are gonna finance your Film on a magic Credit Line. The funny thing is that it never happens and one you have paid out $25k in advance all the players. [continued below]....

........Alexandra and all 5 of her babies included, disappear.

She is a Former Model and Current Blonde and will talk about anything to distract you as a Male Client when she is trying to convince you it's a good idea to pay and advance fee. She couldn't stop talking to me about how she likes other Women, etc...

She is very dangerous and if you follow ANY of her investment advice it will only end with you losing everything like we did. Let me spell that out specifically.

You will lose:

1) Your Investment

2) Your Production (Including all the Stars attached and you Crew)

3) Any respect you had or were working toward having in the business

You have been warned. She has no financial training other than being an ex Mortgage Broker and a Model "Not known for their smarts" and she will lead you to ruin so she can get a cut from the boys.

Glad I found this

AUTHOR: anynomous555 - (USA)

 This women has been harassing me and my clients for months. I have told her plenty of times and her minions i do not know her or who she is. I agree with her being a scam artist. Very late the other night i received a message claiming that she has commit suicide from a fake account. I found out the very next day that she is alive. The person who sent me a message called me but it wasn't the guy who they claimed to be I spoke to the real guy. I have the screen shots of the message.

This was not me

AUTHOR: Matt Norman - (Australia)

Dear Alexandra,

I am shocked to read this and even more shocked that you would think it was me. Some of the things you've said about me aren't nice Alexandra and you're a better person than that.

Anyway, apart from what's been claimed about me in this I would like to say that Alexandra is nothing like what the original writer puts forward. When Alex was working with me she was professional, hard working and at no time did she ever promise something she couldn't deliver. I found her to be full of energy very knowledgable about film related funding etc and a pleasure to do business with. At absolutely no time did I have any bad feelings toward her and would recommend her highly for anyone wanting to use her services. I even had a young actress from Australia who wanted to connect to a few people in the U.S go see Alex. If I didn't respect her I would never have done that.

I am concerned that someone is writing things like this about Alexandra and I am concerned it is relevant to my own company. I did notice in your reply Alex that you used the name Michael Morris who ripped us off. That part is true. He's done that to a lot of people. I do however reject any accusation of me making any threats to Mr Morris. I live in Australia, what on earth could I do with someone who lives in the U.S. I do know that he has many enemy's though as he's done a lot of damage to a lot of people.

Again I say that none of the original report that i've read about Alexandra is even close to the person I know and to be honest I am appauled that anyone would make you out to be anything other than a professional, great mum, and someone willing to go the extra mile.

With regard to Serge Rodnunsky, I don't know Serge and the only thing I ever really knew about him was that Alex and he are friends. Other than that I couldn't and wouldnt comment on people I know nothing about.

As for the allegations you've made about a certain person who has made contact with you re $120,000 I can assure you that he is currently in court for making false and misleading statements to Police, massive defamation (which now includes what you've written as he's obviously been in contact with you too). The County Court has already proved that this idiot was lying which I won. Now he and his thug partner have a law suit against them both for defamation.

The thing is Alex, you've jumped to conclusions without ever contacting me. I wouldn't have a bad word to say about you even if someone wanted to pay me to say something bad. After all, we got along very well and yes we all had some certain issues with certain people but nothing that wasn't sorted out professionally.

So Alex, I'd ask you to retract what you've said about me as it's not in your character to say such horrible things. For anyone that would like to ask me personally what I think of Alex I am available online at I would have no hesitation recommending Alexandra Townsand as a professional buisness person through and through. I hope this letter finds you well. I will enquire as to the IP address which wrote this original report. Again, sorry you thought it was me. Next time just call. I would have written this a lot sooner if I knew about it. Matt Norman.

Alexandra Townsend

AUTHOR: harrison freed - (United States of America)

I have met Ms. Townsend and she has never promised to fund projects, what she does will do is open the door to her connections in funding. As far as her being a scammer, no way would she jeopardize the welfare of her children.  The film business is a tricky business and I agree you have to be careful of who you deal with, so one must do due diligence before getting involve with brokers, funders and production houses. Slandering someone might make people feel good for the moment, but look at the ramifications in the long run. I don't like pointing fingers and will not do that. I just wish that people would have more transparency in their lives, so this kind of behavior would not occur.

This is Slander written by Matt Norman in Australia and is a lie

AUTHOR: ThisIsATotalLieAboutMe - (United States of America)

I am nowhere known or think of myself as a "film finance expert" what-so-ever. Nor was I ever a Mortgage Broker. This was written by a guy in Australia by the name of Matt Norman, everyone will hear about him as he is slandering many people and telling lies about them. He does this when people tell him they don't want to work with him.

I have many people that will come forward to support me and and provide factual evidence regarding this guy, Matt Norman. After my 2 other partners, Dave P. and Annie G.  and I parted ways with Matt  Norman's company, Wingman Pictures, Matt had threatened all of us (and I hav e supporting emails to prove this) that he will ruin us all and he will sit back and laugh. Not only has Matt Norman put this out here on me, which everything he says is a complete lie and total here-say but he has recently made up a bunch of lies with a very innocent guy that did nothing but loan Matt 120,000 to help save his home. I am hoping he comes forward to support me on this bogus bunch of lies posted by Matt Norman.

Not only has Matt Norman posted this on ripoffreport he also contacted people associated with Serge whom he mentions on here as a guy that I get financing from. Which is total non-sense as that guy is a Director and Producer. The other guy that he made up saying I was sleeping with is someone by the name of Mark, which I don't even know a guy named Mark, he did this knowing that Serge,who is a friend of mine, would see this and possible his friends and wife would see this which would hurt not only his personal life but his career as well. Matt just loves to mess with people and hurt them in any way possible.

I can put anyone in contact with any and all my references, investors/finance guys if they want. I have nothing to hide. No one has to front any monies to anyone I deal with, just because Matt happen to be stupid and give a guy that all 4 of us (me,matt,dave and annie) had connected to on a conference call and thought he seemed real) turned out to be a scam. After all of us parted from Wingman, Matt had given Michael Morris of Marathon Credit Group 12,000 and just recently was gived it back from Michael after Matt threatened to break his legs. So Matt doing that stupid thing had nothing to do with me, it was his own stupidity and was done 2 months after the parted ways

I hope this eil thing that Matt wrote would come down along with my pictures, Slander is Illegal and so is making up false report on someone to ruin theire career and personal life. please contact me and i will provide facts not lies like this guy wrote, he is obviously jealops of me and pissed off i left his company and wont submit his projects anymore for consideration of funding, his loss, this shouldnt be mine.
