Stay away from Jeff Jones and Monica Salinas, John Robert Powers; they are the biggest thieves in the face of the earth. They rip off parents of thousands of dollars. They take hundreds of dollars in cash before classes. Do you think they report that to Uncle Sam. Everybody gets screwed by these two, even Uncle Sam.

 They fire employees who try to inform parents about these jerks' crooked business practices. They fire employees who really want to do good for the children taking classes. They fire employees, without pay, who really are decent human beings.

Jeff Jones and Monica purposely don't keep track of who has paid what. They then tell clients they owe more money than actually true. When parents try to fight them on the issue, Monica tells them they have to pay the balance or remove their children from class immediately. Some parents keep track of their own payments, for obvious reasons. Then Monica plays her, "Oh, I forgot my computer at home," card. Monica never admits she's wrong. She simply wants to rip off as many parents/children as possible.

On the rare occassion that they actually have a real agent auditioning students, Jeff and Monica do not tell parents that the agent is interested in their children if this interest happens before auditions for iPOP! This happened to one of my sons and three other students. These same students "auditioned" for iPOP! Of course, they made the audition. Parents were then ripped off of $5000 to $10,000 dollars more. Food and water totally suck! Nothing they promised for the kids, food, snacks, t-shirt,..actually happened.

Another thing, Jeff Jones and Monica charge parents based on how much money they have. Yes, they investigate your financial assets, but they pretend everyone is getting a discount for one reason or another. Some parents slither in for free and smoke pot in the hotel rooms. I guess ipop!, John Robert Powers, Rad Kids, Jeff Jones, and Monica Salinas are truly going green! Your child is really getting the best education possible, but he or she will not get into the entertaining business because once agents or managers learn you had anything to do with JRP and all their trash, they turn your child away. Agents/managers don't want to tarnish their own reputation. I don't blame them. Head shots and Zed cars from JRP and their network of ripp off "photographers" totally suck.

I can't understand why cities still allow these thieves to do business in our cities. I can't believe the IRS is allowing this to continue. Check out their Saturday classes. Cash flows! Monica and Jeff want to move out of state to open another JRP Piggy Bank! Let's get rid of these fat swines!

AUTHOR: Monica Salinas - (USA)

I dont know who you are but I do know this your making false statements. Jeff & I left JRP Agoura Hills more than a year and half ago. You state that we dont report to Uncle Sam...we have always kept up our taxes accurately. You have no proof of our financial records that we submit to taxes so how could make false accusations. We don't fire employees for the reasons that you have stated...we have fired employees for not accurately doing their jobs. And, in fact in the two years we were in Agoura Hills we went through about 10 employees...which obviously shows that we dont have a big turn around time. We always kept accurate records in 5 different ways of all money they went through that office (hand written ledger, copies of all transactions, a payment schedule that we would write down and sign off for payments received, as well as our JRP system, and we had an accounting firm that took care of all accounts). We tell parents to keep records themselves also so that if they had any questions they can compare our files with theirs. I had my own computer at the office that stayed their so your accusation that I forgot my computer at home is false. We always had agent/manager auditions on a weekly to biweekly basis. We never held back information regarding callbacks. All agents/managers would take the original files of the kids they were interested in with them so that they could call the parents directly. If a child received a callback and got accepted to iPOP! we would inform them that they can either sign with the agency/manager or they could attend iPOP! and see if they had more interests that they could choose more from. iPOP! isn't held a small no known hotel it is a really big event that does cost money to put on. The money for iPOP! that parents pay does go to hotel rooms, photos, and so forth. Jeff & I never promise anything to clients and if so it is stated in their contracts. We never charge parents on how much money they have iPOP! is a flat fee for everyone if you choose to do more categories obviously that is everyones personal choice. Stating that parents slither in for free and smoke pot in the hotel rooms...this has never happend. The parents that attend iPOP! are their with their kids you really think that they would risk what they have worked for...yet alone smoke pot while their kids are in the rooms. The agents/managers that attend iPOP! as well as go to the JRP's go for a reason because as you clearly state that the kids are getting the best education!!!!! Not all photos work in certain markets or with agecy/managers we do photos with photographers so that the kids get a fair chance at being thought of for representation. Sometimes parents bring photos of their kids sitting in the back seat of the never want to give these out. That is why we tell parents that these photos are begginer headshots...Whomever you are really needs to stop making false accusations. You obviously have so much to say but cant say who you are. Why are you hiding...we certainly have nothing to hide.
