Starquest contest by FAME Freddy C. do I advise for anyone who is persuaded to enter into this so-called talent contest by starquest here in Las Vegas or New York or any other state is to avoid it with all costs. This is not a talent contest at the sales ad contest. This company is Miss representing with the contest is about and fraudulently advertising banners and posters two contestants that think they have a fair shot of winning the contest based solely on their talent. The contest coordinator freddy is very deceptive he is only interested in getting money from the contestants to pay for his ad sales from other companies to be advertised in a Filipino based magazine. This magazine is not even distributed in American clubs circling in Filipino karaoke bars and restaurants. The entire contest is a rip off and I would highly suggest for anyone who is thinking about entering it should quickly decline las angeles California and las vegas nevada LA disappointed Author: Las Vegas, Nevada $$ REWARDS Offered: Starquest contest by FAME Internet

Musicians friend Guitar center Purchased banjo January 5, 2015. Paid for overnight shipping but did not get item until three days later. Banjo head crack in neck. Had to send item back to get a replacement. Replacement also had massive defects but I settled with the item. Seven months later I get contacted by a collection agency notifying me that they have no record of me sending the original item back And they have placed derogatory comments on my credit report. The only way I can contest is if I can prove I sent the item back which I did not keep record because I never thought there would ever be a problem like this.
