My daughter has been a member of for four years. Initially, they sent her on tons of auditions and showed a lot of interest in her. She was even booked for a commercial through their Management agency. I can honestly say that in the beginning - I was very happy with the company.

After a while - I stopped receiving auditions, phone calls, and checks for her commercial even though it was still showing on television and on the internet. When I received my W-2 forms I noticed that they showed an enormously high amount of money that my daughter supposedly received. I contacted ~ I spoke with Donna. She was genuinely concerned and willing to help me sort through the missing funds issue.

In doing so, Donna found that Jaylin was owed a great deal of money yet never paid it. This was acknowledged and it was supposed to be resolved.

Since this incident transpired - has gone OUT OF BUSINESS! They packed up everything - our children's files, their pictures, and even their money (at least $2000.00 which is owed to my daughter)!!! My daughter is not the only child who was owed money for work and never paid. There are several in Chicago, IL alone. And this is money that I have to claim on my income taxes as income received???

How could someone be so cruel as to steal from a child??? Larry Bagwell, CEO of, should pay for this!

If anyone is in the process of filing a Civil Lawsuit or any kind of lawsuit against and Larry Bagwell, the CEO ~ please let me know.

I am a single mother barely keeping it together and $2000.00 is not chump change.

This company should not be allowed to get away with what they have done. We must ban together and try and get back what has been taken from us and our children.
