Calliope Talent Model & Artist Mgmt LLC Fraud, Liars, Non Paying Talent Agency Selma Texas
I signed with Calliope and booked a job with Verizon, NBC's America's Got Talent, Seno Medical and HEB and all of those jobs have paid Calliope talent some even as far back as March! (I even have Timo recorded since he left a voicemail stating that Calliope has a 30 day pay out...well they have surpassed that and they told me they have two of the checks). I have spoken to all parties and have it IN WRITING that they have paid Calliope on my behalf, however Calliope is refusing to pay me any of my checks! They kept telling me they only have 2 checks but they could not pay me due to a letter to garnish my wages whichi is an out right LIE. They did recieve a letter for me from someone wanting me to appear for an asset hearing (which they refused to provide me with that document hoping I would fail to appear). Thank God the other party text me because they kept giving her the run-arounds! Timo called my Louisiana agent asking her "if she has spoken to me because they have been calling me and trying to pay me but I would not answer my phone". [continued below]....
It is no shocker that Kristi Martin helped make this happen as SHE was the biggest offender clearly some of those fines are shown with the above link.
A major problem: the Texas licensing requirement for talent agencies was revoked in 2010, effective FY2011:(Kristy Martin helped write that, after Calliope had been fined:http://www.calliopetalent.com/legal.html).That means that there is no longer the alternative of complaining to a commission, but rather a suit would have to be filed. Attorney’s fees are available (http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/txstatutes/OC/15/2501/E/2501.203) but only in the case of proof of a prohibited practice (http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/txstatutes/OC/15/2501/C/2501.101). Non-payment is a separate tort, rather than a violation of the statute.
