I responded to an ad which had been placed by Ira Smolev.  I was a single young mother hoping for employment.  After a long wait, I was asked to come in and Ira Smolev was the only one in a hotel meeting room, which was strange.  He spoke about how he was a big shot in commercials but I noticed the lack of staff assisting him.  Fortunately for me I was pressed for time and had to leave.  A few days later he called me back.  I then met with him in his home in Boca Raton.  He was again alone and on the phone so I waited in the foyer and had the opportunity to hear him discussing casting calls and it was apparent to me that the casting calls were a scam and he had been doing them for years.  He spoke on the phone about models in swimwear or something that showed more of their body and bragged about how many potential dates resulted in his interviews.  When he finally met with me he was surrounded by papers and I had the ability to read what was written on a legal pad.  The page listed names of people: Randy Caruso, Gawne - Seattle, Frankum, Saltz and Lehman.  Written on the page was FTC bond and the word Synchronal.  After hanging up from multiple phone calls he finally told me that I was not right for the position but he interested to know if I would go out with him.  I asked him if he had children and eventually told him he should be ashamed of himself because he was deceiving girls younger than his own daughters, wasting their time and taking advantage of them.  Although he asked me to stay, I left and went home to google the names and it seemed to me he was a fraud who had bilked consumers out of so much money that he was required to put up a bond with the Federal Trade Commission.  Later I found another Ripoff Report which was similar to my experience so I decided to write this one hoping to alert the public, especially naive young girls.  I don't know how he is still getting away with this.
