I was hired by MALA SINGH of Sama Models to do fancy facepainting for the CIBC IIFA awards event at Yonge/Dundas Square in June 2011. My work was so well received that I was asked to work an extra hour. I went beyond that and worked an extra 1 1/4 hrs. Mala used that as an excuse to keep putting off paying me, stating that she had to get approval becasue of the changed amount.. Originally, she was supposed to pay me on the day of the event. 2-3 weeks later, she told me (over the phone) that the cheque had just been couriered to her. That sounded phony - why would anyone do that? All the while she called me 'sweetie.' She was sooo nice it took me a while to catch on to her. For two months now, she was going to pay, going to meet me, (she never showed up and wasted an entire day of my time). Then she was going to transfer the money into my account (it never came), then the old, 'the cheque is in the mail' story was used). After a week when it never arrived, I confronted her by phone: she had been in LA and was so busy, blah blah blah however of all the cheques that she had posted, mine and another one never reached the intended destination.By this time, I knew what a scam artist I had been dealing with and told her I was sick of her stories and excuses and I just wanted to be paid. The same old routine started up all over again, ... she was at a meeting but was going to meet me, ... and so on.
What I would like is for anyone who has dealt with this pathalogical phony lying bitch, to contact me. It's time Ms Mala Singh was hauled in front of a judge.
