Complaint Review: Urban Talent Style Inc. - Salt Lake City Utah
Urban Talent Style Inc. My daughter found Urban Talent, and wanted to become a model, so we went to Salt Lake, Urban Talent took pictures and said that she would make a great model. when we talked about the contract, they said that she would have to take a class in order to learn how to walk sit and stand. Salt Lake City Utah
I signed my daughter up for modeling with Urban talant Style Inc. We went through the contract and it made sence at the time there would be fees involved. They said that she would be paying for these fees out of the money that she would make doing a job.
My daughter signed up with Urban Talent Style Inc. March 1st. Urban Talent said that I would have to be responsible for the payments until my daughter made money on jobs, then she would start paying back what was owed. Until recently my daughter had not been able to find jobs in her age group, and she only got the one job because the company asked for her.
In the contract that we signed, it stated that the money for training and promotional tools would be taken out of my bank account on the 30th of each month, the first three months were okay, then they would start taking it out before the 30th or after the 30th which caused my account to go into overdraft.
On the 5th month they attempted to withrawal the $150.00 payment and the bank declined the transaction. I had heard nothing regarding this issue until earlier last week, they started texting my husband asking for the payment he explained that the reason they weren't getting the payment was because they put us into overdraft twice, and when my husband said not to text him but to call the house phone, they continued texting, asking for the payment.
At this point my husband got feurious and told them not to ever text him again and to contact me on the house phone, they at that point stated that they called the house phone repeatedly and left messages, Which I know for a fact is not true. I have two answering systems, one goes directly to voice mail when I am on the phone and the other will pick up when I am not home.
Later that week I received an email from Camilla Larsen stating that the payment of $150.00 was due and that we needed to pay the past due balance of $150.00, remind you the payment for Sept is not due until the 30th and yet we were willing to pay this when it was due and we knwe that we needed to pay the past due as well.
A day later we received an email from Camilla Larsen again, this time she stated that if we did not pay up by the 22nd they would take us to collections and that we would have to pay over $2,000.00 in collection fees. By my account We only owe $950.00.
I have attempted to contact her letting her know that we weren't trying to get out of paying this, and explained our financial situation, and that we were coming into a settlement that we would ba able to pay in full by the following week. to this day I have not heard anything from her.
Urban Talent Style Inc. My daughter found Urban Talent, and wanted to become a model, so we went to Salt Lake, Urban Talent took pictures and said that she would make a great model. when we talked about the contract, they said that she would have to take a class in order to learn how to walk sit and stand. They told us that the class would cost her $1,750.00 to take, and that was to pay Style Inc. for the class time, but we also had to pay an up front fee of $200.00 and then the remaining balance to be paid monthly, by the 30th of each month at $150.00 per month. They took 4 months worth of payments and on the 4th payment Style Inc. took the payments out earlier than the 30th which at that time my bank covered the fees, but we ended up owing $175.00 in overdraft and payment fees. When the 5th month came around Style Inc. attempted to withdrawal the $150.00 payment and was unable to. They claimed that they had attempted to contact me regarding the matter, and claimed that they would call my house phone and leave messages, but I know for a fact that they have not. I have two forms of voice mail. One is when I am on the phone it will go to a voice recording, the other is my answering machine, that will pick up when I am not home. The did however contact us texting my husbands phone. I had asked how much was owed on the balance and they never replied. Finally last week they kept texting my husbands phone demanding payment, and when my husband asked them not to text him and to call the house phone they repeatedly texted. I finally received an email from Camilla Larsen threatening me with going to a collection service. I emailed her back and let her know our financial situation and stated that it would be resolved. and I asked for and address so that I could pay it off, till this day she has not answered my email. The only reason I agreed to letting my daughter sign up for this, is because I thought this company was legit. Since my daughter has been with Urban Talent, and she would do her check ins and look through the jobs, there had never been anything that was within her age range. She has spent more than six months with this company and she was only called once not to long ago for a job. Salt Lake City Utah
