EDITOR’S COMMENT:  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THESE TYPES OF ISSUES:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with personal commentary and/or allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking HERE NOW or learn a little more by visiting our “Donate to our Efforts” page.  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

(((REDACTED))). Are they credible? should you hire them? You decide.

I had been scammed by a compnay of (((REDACTED))),  and the owner of the company (((REDACTED))).

(((REDACTED))) committed fraud, changed the terms on his website to accomadate his fraud, took money which was meant to be in Escrow for the celebrity without a confirmed booking. He claims he had a booking confimation and i have evidence for the agent they were not.After having all the evidence of him committing fraud, and a Police file against him, (((REDACTED))) hired (((REDACTED))) as his attorney.

(((REDACTED))) begain sending me threating letters, to destroy my evidence i hold against (((REDACTED)))  as i may of curupted it, he send threats claiming he will apply for a restraining order so i cannot contact his client and now his latest stunt? His put forward a compliant to court to sue myself, the victim of fraud, for damages to (((REDACTED))) as i had posted a ripp off report on (((REDACTED))) as he has suffered losses to his company and credibility.

(((REDACTED))) has been bankrupted twice and has a long histoty of court appearances for not complying with tax and laws.

i have found him not to be credible at all, and to lie in emails as i have a full history and evidence to scam me of 35 thousand dollars. I dont find him to be honest , credible or reputable at all.

What makes it worse (((REDACTED))) who is actually meant to be a credible attorney took on the case to defend such a scammer and actually attempt to sue me on top for damages?

Its not going to happen (((REDACTED))), i dont mean to tell you the laws here as you are meant to be credible, it is not against the law to post the truth and put your opinion online.

(((REDACTED))) has only just started working for himself , I can understand times may be tough to get work and pay rent and staff, but i personally believe if you start your own business it is important to be credible, select your clients and not stoop to pathetic levels and scrape at the bottom of the barrel. Attorneys should be a little more selective and not represent people who have committed fraud or stolen, they should talk to thier clients to do the right thing and not try and slip through the cracks of the law and let them belive its ok to do it again. I guess if people just started off in business and are desperate to earn some dollars they will do anything to get some money off you.

So as only new to business and sending redicoulous threats and silly demands i dont find them to be credible at all.
I belive (((REDACTED))) needs to be more selective and maybe learn through experiences not be stoop for work, and to take on work that is credible and work with morals.

Hopefully he changes his ways and builds a successful business but it will be unlikely if the attitude wont change.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Mr. Peter Tsallas is a con-artist & unfortunately mentally disturbed


For all who read this man's posting on Ripoff Report, unfortunately Mr. Tsallas who filed this Ripoff Report hired our company for a fraudulent celebrity project and our staff worked on the project for months and then found out he was mentally disturbed.   We found out that Mr. Tsallas was running a penny auction site called Auction A Celebrity which is an attempt to con people and fans of their money by telling people that his company can actually give a bidder a chance to meet a favorite major performer or celebrity by purchasing bid tickets on the site.  Mr. Tsallas retained our company and when we found out he was not legitimate, we stopped working with him and he started creating false internet postings on our company.  He has attacked legitimate agencies setting up false scam sites and even using Ripoff Report acting like our company is the scammer.  He also has attacked my attorney Sam Sherman, who filed a lawsuit against him on Ripoff Report, who is a professional and contacted him to work out some sort of solution and he got worse. 

Unfortunately Mr. Tsallas is in Australia and we are in the US, so he avoids prosecution and is avoiding mental health professionals interested in helping him.   We found out that no major artist or manager has approved that Mr. Tsallas can do what he is doing on his site in any way, so we stopped working with him. and warned major agencies about him.  

He suggests that a bidder who wins can have time with Eminem, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, One Direction, and others.    He says that a bidder would have a chance to spend time with the celebrities if they spend money buying bid tickets when there is no chance of winning at all.  Although not very professional or creative, Mr. Tsallas and Auction A Celebrity seems to be fleecing money from fans of major artists.  He is also suggesting that he has contacted major superstars, which he has not and that $40,000 will be donated to a major charity to obviously try to suggest a philanthropic aspect of this “ponzi type” scheme. 

 Directly from his site.

"Maybe you’ve always fantasized about hanging out with one of the world’s sexiest music divas – superstars like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga or Mariah Carey. 

Imagine a candid chat over dinner with style and football icons David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo, or even a cheeky cocktail with Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake or the boys from One Direction.

 Perhaps the world’s most successful R&B heartthrob, Usher, who has made a sensational transition from star performer to star-maker behind the scenes, is more your cup of tea.


We’re going to leave you in suspense for now and won’t be telling you whether any of the name’s we’ve mentioned above are on board for Auction A Celebrity’s unique experience, BUT if you really need to know each star taking part as we announce them, register for our Star Encounter Alert (link to registration page) and find out whether your long-time dream could possible become a reality!

I wanted to give a rebuttal on this man's posting and warn all who may visit this site not to send this man money and to let others know about this scam who are legitimate fans of these artists.

It is too bad that people like this can post lies and negative things on the internet about legitimate companies and professional businesses.  Please contact our office if you have any concerns about the legitimacy of Mr. Tsallas's negative posting on our myself as CEO or concerning(((REDACTED))).

AUTHOR: Consumer - ()

pathetic attempt by a so called professional as a credible talent agent?


He stole 35 thousand using celebrity names like Kim Kardashian, and USher claiming he could book them, totally scammed us of 35 thousand, put the money in his pocket with no confimation.

We sighned contract stating the money will go in escrow and be used for a deposit for the celebrities.

He then claimed the celebrities were confirmed, they never were.

He kept the money, it was all a fraud and a lie, he claims everyone knows him in the industry, after talking to Kim Kardashians paublicist, (((REDACTED))) is unknown at all, a no body and is not even authorised to make any booking for the celebrities he claims.

He is a total scam.

After posting the truth online,(((REDACTED))) hire a attorney (((REDACTED)))

First threat he will obtain a restraining order to not have me contact him again.

Second threat for us to destroy all the evidence againt him as we may of altered it, and the third and the funniest of all?

He will sue us for slander.

You dont need to be an attorney to know you are allowed to post thr truth online, so we quickly reckonised that same sherman was a backyard attorney and were not wrooried at all.

It get better (((REDACTED))) a so called professional has tried to defend himself by uploading online that i am mentally ill and disturbed?

Seriously (((REDACTED))) your an idiot.

If you even are considering hiring and working with(((REDACTED))) get your accountant or attorney to do a search on (((REDACTED))) from Fallbrook online, he will pull up his entire history of bankruptcies , failed businesses and name changes of companies, he is a total fake agent and keeps uploading new sites under different names to con people into sending large desposits claiming he can book celebrities.

He also runs another scam site of (((REDACTED))).

Rest assured were onto it, we will expose him that much to shut him down for good.

We have noticed his traffic has dropped by 25% so exposing his scams is working.

Knowledge is power, research him and shelp shut him down for good.

Thanks in advance
