PEOPLE BEWARE!!!!!!!   i just had the consumer protection at my home,they contacted me,they are once again going after Lorraine,yes second time she is going to be charged for ripping ppl off. went to LORNIKS NEW COMPANY now called IN MODEL MANAGEMENT in hopes for pursuing a modeling career for my 15 year old daughter. she charged me 767.00 for a photo shoot as well as boot camp classes,only to find that the photo agency i was booked with was not going to be there on the day Lorraine scheduled us for. thinking something was up i immediately smelled a bad deal and asked for my money back. of course Lorraine was going to refund my boot camp but not my photo shoot. bullsh*t i said i want all my money back under the 10 day cooling off period in the consumer protection act. LORRAINE STILL REFUSED ME MY MONEY BACK,in full.after several request letters for my money back,i filed court papers,and low and behold i heard from LORRAINE that she was going to refund us our money in full,and dont even get me started with the lady with the english accent who cursed at me and told me i would not see a dime that i would spend lots of money in court fees and not see a dime.well i did see a dime,every penny of it,but had to go through hell to get it to make a long story short,consumer protection act just left my home,took all my documents with them,and she is getting charged once again..........................

I believe that this LORRAINE NICKEL went to Erindale High School!!

AUTHOR: Erindale High School - (United States of America)

I went to Erindale High School and this is the same Lorraine Nickel that went to Erindale High School with me.  Don't trust her, my cousin went in with her children and I.  When we went in I knew I recognized her but couldn't place it until afterwards.  My cousin paid money for her girls pictures and sure enough they didn't get any work - just money out of pocket.  If you go onto her website she has put her clients D.O.B. and full name on her website!!!!  Does she not realize that by doing this her clients are vulnerable to identity theft.

wish i could help

AUTHOR: shelley - (Canada)

unfortunately you cannot contact any of us out here complaining because when you post a contact they delete it out,the only thing i can say to you is get in touch with consumer protection agency who is now dealing with Lorraine in court not once,but twice for defrauding ppl,this site is good for venting,but not good for getting ppl to get in touch with one another which would be good because we could all ban together and show up at her next court date which i could find out because i have the contact person from consumer protection who has been keeping me up to speed where they are in the court proceedings. better yet get a date together and petition in front of her business in oakville,i know just where it is.wish i could help i could put contact in here for me but they would just wipe it out before its posted. go see a lawyer,or better yet file court papers like i did,i stopped at nothing until i got a full refund.and thats what ppl have to do be persistent and stop at nothing to get what you want.

HELP !! Mom wants her children OFF of the website !!!

AUTHOR: another ripped off parent - (Canada)

Hi.. I would LOVE an opportunity to speak with all/any of you. Is there a way of contacting you ? I need advice Please !

I can only speak for my family and my experience but..

I want my children OFF of the website !!!

I have a detailed story too but I'm not posting that today.. The short of it is: I was with this company for a little over 1 month prior to wanting my money back. Our contract was not being honoured. I'd already paid for a month I didn't get and I couldn't so much as get a reply to my e-mails until I asked for a refund. Already, it was a business deal that I do NOT want to be in.

They refuse to address the issues I have. They are lying. They are rude and unprofessional and incoherent. It got just nasty from there.. amongst a load more ridiculous emails. I'm being told that I'm just pissed off because I'm "not getting my own way" .. (what the..??) In one email, they asked if I am the "type of person that purchases something, wears it and then wishes to return it...??? ".. Are you kidding ? You don't know me .. How dare you accuse me of something like that. I wanted to cut ties with you long before I had time to "wear it".

By the way, our contract was STILL NOT being honoured at this point !!!!

Now I'm FORCED to have my babies on their site !!!??? They are ignoring my requests to have my children removed from the website. Why ?... Because I signed a paltry contract ? Does that mean I have to be treated like this ?... Did I sign away my children's rights ?... Is it a ransom they want ?


AND.. ATTN: IN MODEL MANAGEMENT..(assuming it was you who replied) before you reply and send another RUDE, name calling rebuttal stating that we don't understand the business and boohoo, poor me, my kid didn't get a call.. read the d**n letters.. we GET that it's a tough industry ! We GET that there are fees ! We even GET that the decisions aren't ultimately up to you.

....Here is the problem in my opinion (and this is tip of the iceberg I'm guessing)

YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS !! You were unprofessional ! You are rude to your clients.. YES, WE are your clients...WE make YOU money. You've lied and cheated. And all business aside, where do you find the nerve to treat people this way ?

In what modern world does a client have to put up with that?? What about business and social ethics ? 

I want my children off of the website and I want my money back !!! I do not want my children exposed to these people let alone be in a business relationship with them or affiliated in any way, shape or form. Is there any help out there for me ?? Do I seriously have to put up with this?

I would appreciate any help.. advice..whatever PLEASE. I need to do something about this right now...

i know

AUTHOR: shelley - (Canada)

i know that lornik is in model management now,she is currently being charged under the in model management name but has been charged under lornik productions as well,when she gets charged she just changes the name and moves to another city, i know this because consumer protection has all my documents to take to court to charge her again under in model management and it was then they told me they just recently charged her under lornik name 5000 fine,this time around she will get heftier charge..........looks good on her she scammed alot of ppl,but i didnt take her bs,i served her with court papers,then she got scared because she knew she was going to court and she gave me all my money back before we got there,then consumer protection contacted me an wanted all my documents so they could charge her again,and its still going on in the courts as i am in contact with the woman charging them for the second time,but thanks for the info anyway..

#12 REBUTTAL Owner of company

IN Model Management

AUTHOR: Pauline - (Canada)

Just to get word out, Lornik Productions (now ceased) is the same as In Model Management.


In model management also lists the following as their business:

Model & Talent mgmt

fashion shows


special events parties (teen birthdays and ladies botox)


personal shopper/image consultant



There is another company that does these types of things too - Orange Model Management.  Is it popular for these companies to do All these things?

Also, website  says website expired.  I clicked on a link that got me knowhere really, just parties and agencies like Orange but when I went back it showed me all these modelling links, I think it may be Lorrain Nickel (Lor Nik) from Lornik or In Model management.


Just my findings, lots of links via Lornik Productions out there.

Wow really?
I just signed up for this! and i live an hour away from oakville and me and my parents travelled all the way to oakville for an interview and took us so long to convince us into paying about $500 for the photoshoot! And so we booked a photoshoot for the next weekend coming up, we arrive and the photographer says she broke her camera and is getting it fixed now and that she feels really bad and how she is a jerk. SO LORRAINE screamed at us on the phone to leave the money under the door, and my dad wanted a receipt of it saying that we payed just in case the money was lost. And i havent got a phone call back from her ever since! SHE RIPPED ME OFF. Im going to go drive all the way to oakville show up in her office and tell that bi*ch off!
