To Whom It May Concern,

On February 8, 2009 my daughter had an interview with REM Studios and was signed up to attend the IMTA (International Talent and Modeling Association) convention in New York City in July 2009.

The interviewers were Robert Owczarek-Latte, Derrick Daily and Kiki Wellman.

We signed a contractual agreement with REM Studios, 3511 West Belmont Ave, Chicago Il, 60618. The agreement stipulated 5 months of bi-monthly training sessions and preparatory work in both modeling and acting. The culmination of this contract was a week at the IMTA convention in New York City, 5 competition classes, photography, hotel room for the week, roundtrip airfare, transportation to the hotel and baggage handling. Additional classes could be added at an additional fee.

The monies were required to be paid in advance. All fees were payable to REM Studios.
Monies were accepted in cash, check or credit card.

Training was substandard. Many sessions were cancelled after arrival time. Instructors were substituted last minute or were absent altogether.

Robert Owczarek-Latte, director, was to register at the conference 24 hours in advance of the group and arrange all of the registration, room assignments, transportation and incidentals.

Three days prior to departure Mr. Latte stopped answering his email, cell phone and office phone.

Mr. Latte did not arrive at the conference. No monies were paid to the IMTA on behalf of any of the REM Studios participants. Crucial registration materials, photography discs, music sound tracks, and competition data were not sent to the IMTA as stipulated in the contract.

The group had to arrange their own transportation from La Guardia Airport to the hotel. This group included 2 minors traveling alone that Mr. Latte agreed to supervise.

Mr. Daily was contacted and he stated that he would fly out immediately to represent our group at the conference. Mr. Daily then stopped answering his cell phone, office phone and email. Mr. Daily did not arrive at the conference.

Each participant's fee was $5,295 and each parent/ guest fee was $ 2,995.

Currently no one associated with the group is aware of the whereabouts of Robert Owczarek-Latte or Derrick Daily. No contact with Kiki Wellman took place after the initial interview.
