N.J. AG sues Industry Model, Talent Studies LLC and Interface 1 LLC for Fraud


NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – New Jersey Attorney General Paula Dow and the State Division of Consumer Affairs announced a lawsuit Tuesday against two modeling companies and their owner for alleged deceptive business practices.

Industry Model and Talent Studies LLC, and Interface 1 LLC, and owner Roman Vintfield allegedly deceived consumers by having them enter into written agreements to pay for services that would purportedly assist the consumers’ children in obtaining modeling and acting careers. There have been more than 200 complaints submitted to the division against IMTS, formerly located in Edgewater, N.J., and Interface 1, located in East Brunswick, N.J.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants violated the Consumer Fraud Act through unconscionable commercial practices, through making false promises and/or knowing omissions of fact and/or misrepresentations, as well as failing to provide copies of sales contracts to consumers.

“We allege that consumers were led to believe they would receive personalized assistance to market their children to prospective modeling or acting employers, but they ultimately ended up paying for expensive photo shoots and nothing more,” Dow said.

The state is seeking restitution for consumers of approximately $170,000, as well as civil penalties against the defendants and reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and costs.

Dow alleges that the defendants approached parents with children at theme parks and malls, commented on how attractive the children looked and obtained contact information from the parents.

Dow further alleges that the defendants then induced the parents to come to their offices for a free evaluation, at which time the defendants pressured the parents to sign contracts that allegedly included marketing services, but actually only provided for a photo shoot.

The complaint further alleges that the contracts the defendants required consumers to sign contained clauses preventing cancellations or refunds for scheduled photo shoots, and also waived the consumers’ right to a jury trial and to assert any set-off, defense or counterclaim in any action.

An initial violation of the Consumer Fraud Act may result in a civil penalty of up to $10,000, with each subsequent violation subject to a civil penalty of up to $20,000.

Phone:  1-518-635-0704
Web Address: www.cashadvance.com

I recieved a call at my place of employment from a man claiming to be an Officer Frank Harris from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation stating he was calling in regards to a complaint against my name and social security number from Cash Advance USA. He said in order to resolve this urgent matter I had to verify my personal information, agree to speak with the billing department, agree to provide my debt information, and pay the amount of the cash advance.

There were two major problems with this call….one I have NEVER recieved a cash advance from this or any other company in my life and two what criminal investigation agency has a billing department? None!

Well of course I did not agree to give my information but as I tried to inquire more information about this suspected claim the man became very nasty and said, “I’m an officer and you need to watch how you speak to me. If you are unwilling to cooperate then I will call your job and place you under arrest”…..as you can guess that never happened.

Because I was so upset and disturbed by this call I filed a complaint with my local police department.

A few days later I received another call at work from a man claiming to be Eric from the Law Office of Steven Paterson stating the same facts as the first call. Again, when I refused to provide them with my personal information and started inquiring information from them, the man became nasty and told me if I could not cooperate then I would be brought to caourt on behalf of Cash Advance USA. For the most part this call played out the same as the first call, but one interesting thing was the number I was given to contact them at was different than what showed up on caller ID….two totally different states for that matter! one even being a calling card…odd!

After arguing with this man over the fact that I have NEVER had a cash advance, I adviced him to stop calling my job and that I had made a complaint to local athorities. At this time the man said “stop calling this company” and hung up on me.

I also reported this to my local police department under my first complaint.

Once again a couple days later the same people called my job from an unavailable number this time. I was not at work this day, but was given a courtesy call by a co-worker informing me of the call. This prompted me to try and contact this company via the phone numbers I had recieved from the first two calls. Again, my calls played out the same as the first two calls except this time one of the people I talked to knew alot of personal information of mine (address, phone #, date of birth)….this did not settle well with me.

After, ending my call with the comapny in question I called the FBI and made a complaint. I told them because this company seemed to be steeling people’s persoanl information and commiting fraud, I felt a complaint was necessary. The FBI agent I spoke with told me they would screen the phone numbers and company thru a data base to see if there are similar complaints…..we will see what happens from here, but for now I hope this information helps other people. Good luck to all!

Just a side note…..I noticed in similar complaints on Ripoff Reports in regards to Cash Advance USA people did not inquire with them, but rather put an inquary with Lending Tree…..sounds like a leek too me!

Buying Prescription Drugs Online May Be Dangerous Says
Drug Enforcement Administration
Scam Alert 1

DEA Logo - Buying Proscription Drugs

National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP)

“The Canadian Pharmacy, Canadian/European Pharmacy”, “Canadian Healthcare” and “US Drugstore” are brands of one of the most disgusting illegal online pharmacy group well organized CRIMINAL OPERATION of all times. “GREED” is the driving force behind this operation. Don’t let them fool you. They will never send you any genuine drugs. If they ever send anything at all, it may consist of literally anything from sugar to wall plaster, and they certainly don’t care that you will endanger your health by taking those dangerous counterfeit drugs.

Who's Behind Online Pharmacy 

Today a shadowy, transnational network of illicit drug manufacturers, traders, doctors, Web site operators, spammers and criminals makes up the online pharmacy world.

Buying Medication Online Can Be Safe

There are many options out there when it comes to buying medication online. We have looked at websites after websites. Some sites feature offshore pharmacies that do not require a prior prescription. Others feature licensed pharmacies that do require a prescription from your doctor.
Before making a purchase that can effect your health, we strongly recommend that you consult your physician & DO NOT self-medicate. Ordering medication online can be a safe, money-saving experience. When done through licensed online pharmacies that require a prescription, you can be assured that the medication you get is exactly what you need to treat your ailments.

I noticed a mysterious charge to my checking and called the bank. They recommended researching the site. I did some research and discovered that their web site would not open and google searches for wcspay.com turned up nothing. What I did find was numerous complaints about dealing with BM pharmacies and then having unknown charges put on the card used with BM pharmacies. This was only through googling wcspay and leaving off the .com The wcspay.com web sight would not even open. My charge was 169.00 for wcspay/petonline I have not idea who they are, but I would recommend avoiding BM pharmacy. I thought I was getting a good product, not set up to be ripped off in the future.


Thank you for your comments. This is a comment from BM Pharmacy.

We would like to assure prospective buyers that we are not scammers. We are now in our 9th year of trading online with many happy, repeat customers (100’s of 1000’s of them). We are not in the business of putting ourselves out of business by selling customer information or defrauding customers.

We understand customers hesitation with placing orders over the internet and take any comments and concerns very seriously. We have live help (chat) and a toll free number from the USA. We encourage all prospective customers to engage us in conversation as a means of “due diligence”. Alternatively, keep searching for pharmacy review sites and see the bigger picture for yourself.

We have been fighting hard to clean up the industry for the last 9 years. We are McAffee tested and certified daily as a safe and secure site to shop at. McAffee would not risk their reputation by not doing a proper job to ensure our site (and our cystomers information) is indeed secure.

As the market leader in the industry, with guaranteed lowest prices, there are many people out there who have a vested interest in making sure customers dont shop with us. As an interested reader in this review, please keep looking for other reviews to decide for yourself. If you have any further questions, please dont hesitate to contact us directly through our live chat, phone number, or a helpdesk ticket. We are fanatical about customer service and we will do our best to look after you.

Many thanks

Online Pharmacy Cautions

BM Pharmacy

use extreme caution when ordering from these guys! I ordered once and only once and days after receiving my order I began receiving unsolisited emails from dozens of spammers. I suggest NOT using your primary Email address and creating one specifically and only for ordering (which I do with all shopping online now just in case. It is nearly a year later and I have to delete 30 to 60 emails per day promising to make “this” bigger or “that” better and introductions to websites I would never even be curious to visit. I contacted them but all they said was that they do not sell customer names. They suggested that I open and forward each and every one of these emails so as they could track down the perp. I opened the first email and got a viral attack on my address book (fortunately empty) and hours upon hours of “making things right” again.

Certified Financial Protection Group, LLC

A significant number of consumers are complaining that they have made payments in the range of $199.00 – $5,000.00 for mortgage payment reduction or loan modification. Their money were taken and there have been no work performed so far.

We definitely have fallen victim to fraud. We paid $3,000.00 to them 2 yrs ago in Nov, 2008, and have been bumped around, blown off and ignored. They refuse to honor our original contract give us a refund. I am thinking LAW SUIT, perhaps class action, they have an F rating with the BBB. I am not sure what to do to get something like that going, but would be more than willing to participate to get a refund and them put out of business.

Direct Commerce Academy

A significant number of consumers are complaining that they have had unauthorized charges to their credit card accounts after signing up with Direct Commerce Academy for trial program cost of $2.99

I was on Yahoo Finance page researching career trends. Saw add to make money at home online. Clicked on it and pages and pages of some lady blah,blah,blah. I’m very skeptical. But when offered for only $2.97. My bad. Should never give card number. Got burned again. They charged my card $139.95. Called my bank,they gave me the number to call(800-396-4039) of course talked to some dude with an accent,I was irriated already now I’m haveing communication problems. He wanted to offer me some discount. LOL. Just me back my money. I did not authorize $139. No where was it stated that my card would charged $139. He said he can only give back $100.We went round and round.I gave up. He said in about 7 to 10 days. I’ll know then. Take hit on $39. Don’t know what else to do.

These People called me out of the blue and I never signed up for anything but they had all my personal information then I checked my Bank account and sure enough they had taken money out of my account. Without me going to a website, not even knowing who they were what it was about, or why they were calling me. This is a total SCAM I have been referred to 6 or seven different people and told my account was canceled but I never even gave my name to them and asked for a cancelation Number and they would not give me one. I have called the number on my bank account and on an email. And have gotten several other numbers to call that are unrelated to them. I have gotten names of people as follows:

  • Steven Street at 866-525-3709 ext 145
  • Jeremy Manire at 866-427-427-3040
  • Alex at 800-422-1949 Third party calling center
  • Chris Lawerence at 866-923-2681 who is a web developer and web site of http://www.marketecture.com
  • Other phone number on Bill 800-422-1949

Chris gave me the phone number of 877-875-6080 and I talked to another Alex who said my account was cancelled but could not give me a cancelation number. I checked on-line ay the www.bbb.org.
They are listed at the BBB as an F. Two companies and they both are frauds.

This post is intended to alert all other web users regarding the OnlineCashSuccesskit via a Facebook link, on http://www.quickprofitkit.com

I have been attempting to contact you over 24hrs non stop, engaging other family members as well to continuously call to speak to a ‘friendly customer support agent’ to cancel my subscription after I had paid the $2.95 fee prior to you billing me a further fee if I do not cancel within 2 days-only to hear the following message everytime we ring;
Hello and thank you for calling customer service (no company name stated). Our office hours are from 8am to 9pm Eastern Standard time Monday through to Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sundays. We apologise for any inconvenience if you have tried to reach us outside of business hours. Your call is very important to us and we look forward to serving you. Please call back during our regular business hours and a friendly customer support agent will be more than happy to assist you.

I attempted to contact you on the advertised email you have on your main website Farendservices.com being sales@farendservices.com – I received this email back from my internet provider;

Obviously I have determined this is a scam to rig money out of people, even though I followed the link via Facebook.com which took me to a rather impressive believable website (which I can’t find anymore) featuring an article in ‘The Australian’ newspaper depicting how a stay at home mum was earning $47 an hour doing this online at home business.

My bank was promptly notified and your company details have been recorded and you will be liable for any further charges once a dispute is filed by them and any other court case if I proceed, including telephone charges and time my family has wasted and mine.

I will be posting this information on every single website available to me to alert others NOT TO PROCEED WITH A SHONKY LINK. I eventually found many other blogs regarding your business, but stupidly I had already made the payment giving you my credit card details. Let me advise you it is only a matter of time before the Government put a stop to unworthy untrustful businesses like yourself. On a number of ripoff sites I have already visited, there seems to be a friendly reply by a ‘friendly customer support agent’ asking the person to contact them-seems that you are checking all the posts and are trying to cover yourselves as you know you are exposing yourself by others finding out. HOW DO YOU THINK YOU CAN BE CONTACTED IF YOU DON’T PICK UP THE PHONE….AND YOU CAN’T BE EMAILED….

After 24 hours of continuous calling and no contact email on your website, I am disgusted with people who would even think to work in a company such as Farend Services Ltd-perhaps these are all family members driving BMW’s and living in mansions. As the saying goes, what goes around comes around-your time will come to an end one way or another.

I will not be contacting you again, you can contact me. Follow my blogs for further postings.
