TNT Management / Tina Norris "Jade Rathbun" - False Impersonator / LIAR!

On March 27, 2009 - We received the following email from a "Jade Rathbun" rathbunjade@aol.com -

Good Morning Lori,
My name is Jade Rathbun and I live in Miami Florida.
I recently worked for the CTaylor Agency out of Evansville Indiana, and have not been paid.
I see your business listed in Evansville, and thought you may be able to help answer my questions.
Every time I call I get a full voice mail, and she never returns my e-mails. Is she closed????? She owes me and my sister $700.00 and its been 4 months! Is there anyone else that I can talk to that has experienced the same problems?
Does your agency staff events and promotions too?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give me!
Jade Rathbun

Of course, we get calls and emails like this often - so we responded to this poor young model with helpful information and facts to help her locate Theresa Catanese from The C. Taylor Agency to get paid.

"JADE" responded and was grateful for the information..... but something kept sounding "fishy" about it all. We even spoke to her on the phone. We noticed that she had a Los Angeles area phone number... be she told us she had recently moved to Miami and hadn't got a new number yet.
"JADE" kept on inquiring about TNT Management / Tina Norris.... even though Tina had nothing to do with the job that she said The C. Taylor Agency booked her for. It was like she kept on trying to get us to say certain things about TNT.... like her involvement with Theresa Catanese with C. Taylor.
She even made up a fake myspace account so she could see the SCAM Alliance's page and their postings on her.... They are a great group of Models that we have come to know who have been helping us state our case to other Models on myspace. She also posted a false report on The C. Taylor Agency online.

A little background info: We, our co-workers, associates, clients and families have been repeatedly harassed through email and phone calls by Tina Norris from TNT Management. She wants everyone to take their postings down off the internet for non-payment, and for ever associating her name with The C. Taylor Agency / Theresa Catanese. She and her "attorney" has called, emailed and threatened every one of us that they are going to sue us. (Which she has not done anything at all..... she claims she took one model to court and won... but the case was actually dropped immediately in court when they showed up.) We have sent Tina Norris 2 different Cease/Desist letters recently to demand that she stop harassing us and all involved.

TO THE POINT: Jade's IP address from her emails do not trace back to Miami.... The IP is from DeMoines, Iowa..... where the TNT Management office is located.
Jade's phone number..(818-859-9829 which we turned over to the local Police Dept.) which actually turned out to be a phone line in California.... is registered to TNT Management.

Tina Norris has made up this "fake model" JADE in order to get information out of us.... so she can TRY to get us to say something that she could use in court.
Hasn't she harassed everyone enough already? Now she has proved herself a LIAR. But we already knew that.
We are not sure that it was actually TINA on the phone with us... but it was definitely someone who she put up to it personally.

This has been turned over to law officials since this is clearly harassment/stalking/cyberbully behavior... The same behavior she clearly blames others for when she is the one that continues to harass and stalk others who speak out against her business practices.

We are currently working with other models and Agencies who are owed money by TNT Management / Tina Norris..... and each one of them have spoken about her being associated on some level with The C. Taylor Agency / Theresa Catanese. It is very interesting to us that Tina would use The C. Taylor Agency as "BAIT". In our opinion, and must we say once again... in our opinion.......this leads up to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are working together.
If you are interested in reading some of Theresa Catanese's LIES in writing - please go to: http://stalkedandharassedrebuttal.blogspot.com/

We are anxious to read your comments on this!
Feel free to help us spread the word.
If you would like the original IP Trace / Reverse Phone documents / proof of the above story, they are available upon request.
Thank you!

all over, North Dakota

I need to make an amendment to my statement above. All the above facts are true and factual except the heading stating I am the owner of the company. I am not the owner of this company, this was merely a miss click.

Thank you and sorry for any confusion.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: shocked! - (U.S.A.)

This is an interesting clip submitted a while back when Theresa and Tina attacked a man in Texas for calling about payment he had not recieved AT ALL!
Please note Theresa Catanese does not use her legal name but an alias "Theresa Steele".
Tina and Theresa both badgered and harassed this man after his wife was murdered and made several horrifying claims and accusations concerning the murder.  BUT, not until the man confronted both TNT Management and C Taylor Agency did they both go to such psychopathic levels. Operating together as you can see.

From: This sender is DomainKeys verified 'steele theresa' Add sender to Contacts To: 'Lupe Alsidez'
"The company that Tina USED to do business with did dissolve. We, however, still work with her all the time. What about the Lay's potato chip and the Baby Einstein jobs? Kits for those jobs were sent to you, as well. You were also sent kits for Folger's Gourmet coffee. Please send all that paperwork to TNT or to us ASAP.Thanks!Theresa"

(this was in reference to a scheme they sadly pulled over and over, claiming the company the model worked for just "disolved")

they book people with either C Taylor or TNT Management. Once the model has not been paid in a usual manner, the model naturally calls the company which they were hired. They are then told they are calling the wrong agency. The model is ping ponged back and forth but not without a quick call from the two of them warning of potential phone calls from the model. The model is left with a sense of confusion as to what company actually hired him therefor at a loss where to seek his money.  Sad to say, this model never did. But what he did receive were some of the most horrific, repulsive and downright inhumane messages and emails from both of these companies with threats and insinuations about his late wife.  So there's your agencies. TNT Management and C Taylor Agency.  Proving there work for themselves, not just merely a rumor, but they themselves yes, have indeed, made a name for themselves. But one neither of them should be proud of.

It has been recently proven Lori Rosas, owner of The Talent and Crew Network, Evansville, IN. has been under recent constant attack from business owner Tina Norris, TNT Management. Lori Rosas is neither affiliated with TNT Management or Tina Norris. She, Tina Norris, however has held back nothing in regards to harassment and slander towards several individuals and companies which has very recently been proven and brought to the attention of the individuals harassed. One of which, Molli Funk, owner of Molliwood Promotions has a Civil Harassment Charge out of TNT as well as a court ordered no-contact order.  EVERYTHING is being documented for court.
As for Lori Rosas, well, this pretty much sums up what SHE is busy doing.
"Lori Rosas of The Talent and Crew Network is an amazing agency.  legitimately working her fingers to the bone "honestly" representing talent.  I know they are all VERY pleased to be with an agency like hers.  There hard to come by."-Chadwich Ganz.
Tina Norris, on the other hand, has and will be soon, exposed for numerous deceitful activities she has performed under the TNT Management.  ALL of which she thought were well hidden.
Don't you know by now, Tina, the things done in the dark...they all surface someday.
guess you didn't..or maby Theresa Catanese told you they would'nt. Should'nt trust the devil when the devil is a lie!   Guess Theresa didn't spend too much time telling you about all the lawsuits won against her stealing client and talent money. Wonder if she will stand with you in court when you go?   Or perhaps you two were too busy attempting to dig up information and "dirt" on people you DIDN'T even know for the sake of slander and harassment.  Guess what again Tina, that didn't work either.  
Your about out of options, Tina.
With the new evidence surfaced, you might want to consider recanting.  We all know that is not an option for you,nor was it for Theresa, till she was caught in court red-faced and forced to tell the truth, nor is it a moral of yours.  Numerous people from around the US have experienced you.. having not met at all but not surprisingly having the same story and experience with a crook and conartist.  Seems overwhelming yet confirming when so many people have had the same experience with you being in NO WAY connected. But we don't think it strange, nor shocking.  just, how do you say,  satisfying.

Should've stopped while you were ahead.

check out another report filed against TNT Management from a client using her agency for the first time, just one of many..... another all too proving story. My favorite part is the ending...  the guy hit it on the head with that statement about young talent. Sad but true... especially for Tina Norris. Your sick!!!!!!!!

"The Modeling and Entertainment Industry is a very difficult business. It is of course immensely rewarding, and working with creative kids and teens is as good as it gets.

If everyone was honest, upfront and believed in honesty and integrity, this would be a dream job.

Our agency here in South Carolina has been in business for 20 years and we have a spotless reputation. Our talent always works, and when you work, you get paid, right? In most case yes, until recently and I will explain that statement to anyone who will listen.
This is a long story and I will give the abbreviated version because I want to paint a complete picture.
Several months ago, December 2008 to be exact, we were contacted by an agency in Evansville, Indiana. They were working in connection with an agency in Des Moines Iowa on a promotion. It was a rather large job, but we were happy to book it. We had many college students home for the holidays and money after all, is important. We worked in connection with one of our friends in the SC low country. She has amazing talent and they want to work. We all waited patiently for all our boxes with promotion material to be delivered.

We of course checked on the status. No problem! It will be there. One day before the event three boxes arrived at our studio. They were supposed to be delivered to the individuals who were to work. I called TNT Management and was told that all the boxes were in their garage, and would be picked up by Fed-Ex and delivered to each individual store. I was told to tell my talent to go and plan to work.

My assistant delivered the three boxes to 3 models in a town 50 miles away.

Each of these three people was to work 2 stores. They had enough material, but paperwork for only one store. They filled out paperwork online for the 2nd store. 2 other people picked up materials from a TNT contact in Columbia South Carolina.

Saturday AM approximately 20 drove to stores expecting to work. Many drove 40 or 50 miles only to be told, we don't know what promotion you are here for and we have no materials. No one could work.

I sent an email to Tina Norris concerning this and I was very angry. The next call I get is from her attorney. I felt after our conversation, he understood the situation, and my talent would be paid. Time passed, many phone calls and emails. We finally received a small check for the talent who had boxes. They all worked 2 stores and were paid for one. Ms. Norris says, no original paperwork, no pay. This went on until we were faxed paperwork that had to be taken to each individual store, and signed by the store manager. A big pain. Some of the talent didn't live in the town where they worked. Nevertheless, we did it. Oh, ok, now you must have an affidavit from the store manager.

I stayed on the situation because it was no longer about money, it's about integrity.

Ms. Norris then decides to contact my talent individually and says she'll pay them directly. No problem. I just want these people paid. She paid one person and none of the rest. I contacted her attorney only because she told me not to contact her again. I emailed a new invoice. Perhaps the most ridiculous event of all then occurred. Ms. Norris sent me her attorney's invoice for $2, 000.00. Imagine that. She says she only had an attorney because our agency contacted him about receiving payment for a job that we completed.

I must say, it's easy to ignore that invoice. It's ludicrous.!!!

I hope my experience and sharing this will help someone who may consider working with TNT Management.
What message does this send to our young adults?
Do the job, work hard, be punctual, friendly, and just don't expect to get paid."

Lori Rosas is NOT a stalker and does NOT write fake complaints.

AUTHOR: Lori - (U.S.A.)

This is exhausting and stupid.
The facts that are demanded above from Tina Norris have already been presented in the case Molli Funk filed and WON against Tina Norris of TNT Management.

A Civil Harassment suit and a No-Contact order has been awarded to Molli as of a few months ago based on the PROOF of threats, false postings, etc. from Tina Norris.

Now that Tina cannot pursue her obsession with Molli like she wants to... She is now focusing on ME. I guess Tina does not realize that Molli's associates as indicated in the court cases also involves ME.

We have called your bluff. Its time to quit.
