Complaint Review: Dianna Liner
Dianna Liner Liner Entertainment Group Diana Liner is a Lying Thief Houston Texas
I would like to issue a warning to anyone considering doing business with Dianna Liner or Liner Entertainment group. She and her company are alternately listed in Houston or The Woodlands, Texas, and Tucker, Georgia, and her company is supposedly formed in Florida. On the phone, Dianna is very good at selling herself and her services. If only she were half as good at delivering those services! Problem is, in many cases, I don't think she's even trying. She merely intends to rip you off from the word go. She will promise you over and over again, "It's coming any day now, just be patient." Meanwhile NOTHING happens.
Against my better judgment, I agreed to an arrangement she suggested, where she would arrange financing for a movie I hoped to produce. She assured me she could raise the 5-6 million dollars I needed. All I had to do was pay a "due diligence fee" in the amount of $1250.00. Since I had seen the "due diligence" ripoff in action before, I was very skeptical, but she assured me that her investors were going to be moving money within the week, and this fee needed to be deposited in her account IMMEDIATELY, or I would miss out on the opportunity. Plus, her contract specifically said, "This fee is 100% refundable. IF Diana Line has not attached interested investor to client's film projects within 120 days... No questions asked!!"
So I went to my local Wells Fargo Branch in New Jersey and made a deposit of $1250 in her account on October 6th, 2014. About 3 weeks later, she called my with an extreme urgency, telling me I need to send an additional $100 RIGHT NOW to cover half the cost of the lawyer writing up the agreement with the investor. Again, against my better judgment, I did that, making a direct deposit to her Wells Fargo account at my local branch.
That was nearly three years ago, and guess what? I never even heard the name of an investor, much less got any introduction or contract. I gave her far more than the promised 120 days. While I contacted her numerous times over the ensuing months, I was always told "I'm working on it," "We're very close," "We'll have a call with the investor this week," and a lot of other such statements that now appear to have been nothing more than fiction.
Finally, on June 22, 2015, more than 240 days after paying her fee, I emailed her asking for a refund. She never refused to pay it, but told me that she was again very close to having an investor attached, but if I wanted a refund, I could have it. Over the next few months, she continued to agree to issue a refund, while not doing so. Throughout the summer, she continuously promised to send me a refund check, and then did not. In mid-August, she told me I would have it in the second week of September.
By mid-November, I still had not received anything. In December, I began to threaten legal action. She finally agreed to send me $100 every two weeks until the debt was repaid. I got one check for $100, then nothing for several months. With repeated badgering, I got a second check. After that, I could not ever reach her by phone or email. I never got any further payments from her. When I threatened again in early February of 2017, she promised to have the debt paid in full by end of February. No payments ever came. My lawyer sent her several letters requesting payment, but they were all ignored. Of course, any legal action against her would cost me much more than the $1150.00 she still owes me after 3 years, so I have no choice but to spread the word: If you are offered any kind of business arrangement from Dianna Liner, no matter how good it sounds, or what kinds of guarantees are offered, RUN AWAY!! She is a liar and a crook.
