I was hired to take pictures by  Tyshone (which he was going by Shawn at that time) on 2/16/13. He asked me to be at the venue he was shooting a new TV show for VH1 called "The Big Break" (which turned out to be a fake show that VH1 has never heard of, and has no affiliation with) at 4:30pm and he only needed me  for a few hours to take some pictures. The shoot was suppose to be over around 7:30pm and I agreed. Well...the show ran way past the time agreed didn't end until 12am the next morning and he finally paid me around 2am with a check I didn't know I was getting. Shawn, well Tyshone said I would get cash, because of the problem I had from his last check that took over three weeks to cash because of a problem he said with his account. Nevertheless, I took the check because he insisted that the money was there, plus, what was I to do, the work was already done. Well, needless to say, Monday morning he sent me an email (as did before) saying once again the venue over charged him and the check will not be cleared until the following week.  I've been calling and texting Tyshone and every week he says next week and when the day come, he comes up with another excuse. I spoked to Shawn was on 4/21/13 and he swore on his grandmother that he would have my money Friday 4/26/13. Friday came, he text me for my information so he could Money gram or Western Union it around 12pm and I didn't hear no more from him until after 6pm when I called him and that's when he said his grandmother was in the hospital and he would send it after visiting hours (I guess visiting hours never ended). I have heard excuse from a sick family member, to a venue over drawn his account by charging him twice and my all time favorite, a death in the family. I believe one person has died at least four times. Tyshone Pringle a.k.a Shawn Pringle a.k.a Mr Pringle is nothing but a lying crook, that has apparently ripped more then me off for years now. I have learned that he has changed the names to this fake TV show and the name of his company at least 6 times. The name of the company he is going by now is the TAI'ZAI MUSIC Group (Unless he has changed it again) This clown really needs to be stop.

I was the winner of that ”Big Break Showdown”

AUTHOR: Ant-Nyce - ()

 So my team and I traveled to Atlanta from New Jersey two times (Jan-Feb) for Tyshones show that he DID claimed would be aired on VH1 in May of 2013. He changed the details and and location of the show so many times even right up until the day of the first showcase. Despite all the changes I really wanted to believe Pringle but, was failed miserably. So after winning the showcase and putting a huge hole in my finances, I began asking for the things promised to me like the radio plays which could have made me thousand of dollars the run around began. This man is very unprofessional and even made a sexual advance at me. I told Pringle that aint my kinda thing and asked for just my money I put out for all of this between travel an hotels we were looking at over two grand. He never paid a cent. The grand prize which was orginally fifty thousand dollars then changed to twenty five thousand and a dodge sprinter tour van was also never supplied obviously. I plan on taking this matter to the full extremities of the law. I have all the contracts, emails, text messages and supporting evidence to back my claim. This is case is a $50,000 case the way I see it. I even offered Pringle a easy way out and he still refused to pay so now I want 0 justice for all that is owed to me and prizes promised for winning & also the damage to my career which are irreparable. There was artist from all over the country at this event and we all sufferd the same. Sooner or later this will all catch up to you Tyshone Pringle. E-Mail: if your interested. Google: 123AntNyce

I'm sorry, Tyshone aka Mr Pringle aka whatever name he's going by at this moment, did pay me, but unfortunately it was with a bogus check that the bank said account did not exist! I still have the check with his signature for proof. I also have all the emails and texts where he's stating that he will pay up as soon as some other venue release the funds from another spot, which has nothing to do with why he hasn't paid me in two months. Mr Pringle wants to say he wasn't happy with my work now it's time to pay up, but yet he called my back to shoot again, not to mention he added an extra $50 because he really loved the pictures and for the extra hours that he had me stay, which I was still under paid.  He was very happy with my work (in his own words) but because he don't want to cover the bogus check he gave me, he has nothing but bad things to say. Regardless of all of that, I did a service and wasn't paid for it. He is saying he paid me, so where's the proof? He don't have any proof because he knows the check he gave me was bogus and not to mention, I have all the emails and texts stating that you are still going to pay me. So when exactly did I get paid? The show  " The Big Break" should be called, "The Big Fraud" because that's exactly what it is! He has been running this scam for years now, just changing the name. I didn't find out until later, that this is what he do. This a video where he did the same thing to other people, and gave the  same lie. Mr Pringle is nothing but a bogus check writing fake show having Scam Artist that goes state to state running this same scam and calling it another name!

AUTHOR: Tai Zai Music Group - ()

As a owner of Tai'Zai Music Group we will address this ridiculous report from Ms. Phyllis Jewell...We hired her service as a back up camera operator for our pilot on February 16, 2013. One of our original Film Guy couldn't work due to a family emergency. Ms. Jewell was paid right along with our staff. Regardless of poor quality of service and footage couldn't be use we still paid for her for her service. That we our pilot was not completed due to lack of footage from Ms. Jewell aka Jewell Photograph.

No one never told Ms. Jewell that we are shooting our show for VH1. We told her how important this shoot is because we are using this footage as a pilot that we can shop the pilot to CW, VH1 and TBS. So I don't know how she claimed that this is a VH1 show...Funny!!!

As Ms. Jewell stated our show is faked but we have a professional 4 member film Crew, Well Known Music Industry Judging Panel (2 A&R, Radio Personality and Legendary Recording Artist "Lil Cease'). But she said our show is fake....But she wanted her nephew to be apart of the show....Funny.....

I will not address the other crazy matters cause it not call for....But I will address that Ms. Jewell called to the hospital while my grandmother was in recovery from a Heart Failure.....Our attorney will handle Ms. Jewell on that personally and we will not address that on rip off report like she did.....So we will see you in court Ms. Jewell
