My teenage daughter answered an AD in the Spectator for Lornik Modelling Agency seeking petites for commercials and Magazines.
She called for her self and younger sister, she spoke to Renee who told her to come in, so we did. We met with Lorraine. She asked if I'd like to sign the girls up. Due my medical situation, and knowing my finances would reduce, I was desperate to find a way for my girls to earn their own money to pay for collage. (Lorraine knows all this). I signed the girls up and paid $735.00. Lorraine said she would market the girls after we produce their photos, we did not have any professionally done at the time, so we did the photo shoot through Lornik and I paid for the photo disc in full ( It took almost 2 months for Lorraine to contact us to view the photos. (After I made several calls and visits to the office).
After my daughters and I viewed the photos, I asked Lorraine if there were any more fees we'd have to pay, she said no.
Another month or so passed, Lorraine called and told my daughter she had agencies interested in girls their ages to tell me to call her ASAP. When I called her thinking she would tell me the Agency and where to take the girls to work, she told me to come to the office. When I got there, Lorraine told me in order to get the girls marketed in a hurry I had to put them on the website, I told Lorraine I had less than $300.00 left in my account. She then made a deal with me to pay $220.00 then (this was on a Saturday) and she would put the girls on the Website that very week, but I had to promise to go in the following Saturday and pay the balance, which I agreed to.
Two weeks went by and Lorraine DID NOT put the girls on the website, she never returned my calls. I did not go in to pay the balance since Lorraine did not keep her part of the deal.
I went to the office after another few weeks had passed and requested my daughters photo disc and a refund of the $220.00. At the time there were several people in the waiting room. Lorraine nodded her head in agreement to give me a refund, but she only did that so I won't cause a sceen. A couple of days later she returned my call regarding a refund a started yelling at me that I did not come in to pay the balance and she would not listen to me when I said I did not come because she did not put the girls on the website according to the deal, she then tells me to take it up with the people in charge of the website. I then asked her again for my daughters disc, Lorraine does not want to give it to me nor does she intend give me a refund or market the girls.
Lorraine of Lornik is a BIG RIP OFF....DO NOT SIGN UP WITH HER!!!!
