I see the gonnabe and the big talent bee sites are now vacant, and "parked" by godaddy's proxy services..... yet in the previous week, we received a My Talent Service email (11/23) which had the gonnabe site embedded

Where did the 554 posts on this thread go???

I sure hope Topix isn't censoring the public opinion because some well known scammers threatened them.

Please Topix, this information is crucial to families. The testimonies here represent millions of dollars to families. Don't let the bad guys get away with censorship. This is America! Support our first ammendment rights!

This company scammed me out of 5K. All the promises in the world and nothing to show for it. Every time we turned around, it was you need to pay for this and pay for that. They keep telling you what a bargain you are getting. You only have to pay $50 dollars for this $250 class. No real agents, no real oppotunities. BOGUS!!!

Did you write this January 2010??? Are people still getting involved with this company? Take them to small claims court and show what they didn't deliver.

My children were also suppose to be quaranteed to be on their television shows only after completing boot camp and other voice and extra training sessions. Yet if I came up with another $25 for showcasing and whatever, it would definitely happen. Yeah, I was scammed against my husband's better judgment only because I was GUARANTEED to have my kids on the t.v. show.

Does anybody happen to know if there is some kind of a suit against this company. If so, I would love to be involved in it. I think its sad that they keep going back into business under a new name. Meanwhile, our kids dreams keep getting shattered!!

My son was signed up in the program 2 years ago. He completed his camp and was supposed to go in for the commercial but they kept canciling and changing the date. The Photographer they have for us to use was bogus. I take better pictures than that. Wal-Mart even does a better job. Then they keep wanting to make you attend more classes that you have to pay for. Isn't that why I paid you 5K?!
I feel completely ripped off. Where are the audition lists? I shouldn't have to pay for those either.

Wow - So I'm not the only person that got ripped off! MyArtistsPlace and Be Productions is nothing but a rip-off. They approached me in a mall where I live in San Jose and told me that my daughter was sooo cute and that she was what they were looking for. We went to the meeting with the Talent Agent (!- sure - what a joke!) and begged me to sign her up and promised me everthing that everyone else is talking about - to model and act on their own show. I signed my daughter up and paid $2,000. What a mistake. Then I had to pay for acting school for 6 weeks. Then when that ended, it seemed like the whole thing ended. I asked what was next and they just told me to call my Talent Agent and they would let me know. So the first time I called, they told me that she quit! Then I was re-assigned to another person and every time I called she was always busy. So I finally gave up and lost all my money, etc. Whoever reads this, please don't give this company any money. They need to be put out of business.

First of all do not blame them for YOUr kids dreams being shattered!! You are the parent! you should of done your homework!! I also went to the Reseda studio with my two kids, and I right away figured out they were nothing but scam artists~ I told em off as soon as they gave me the prices for the packages and left. Yes, my daughter cried because she thought I did not want her to become all the lies they fed us in 39minutes.
The only truth about the whole thing out of their mouth was, Yes, my daughter is a beautiful and very talented girl! but that was not going to make me fall in the scam! Fortunate for me, I did my homework as soon as I came home, looked in the rip off report, and sure thing, they were listed as "scam" I showed it to my daughter and she than believed and thanked me for protecting her rights and emotional well being!! My advice to you parents out there, don't fall for "scams" like this one do your homework and protect your Kids and Your wallets! I am just concerned of the pictures they took of my children during the first interview!

Honey just kiss that money goodbye! and hope for the sake of your child and your wallet! do not fall into another scam, there are many out there, unless you don't care about your child's feelings and your money I hope you learned from your mistake!

These people are scammers.....Sean and Paige...Eric.....and a separate group from the original Be Productions, K&L Productions, LA (Kim DeCampo and "Director", Lisa). They work malls inviting your children for a free screen test using The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as the attraction pitch with Adrian DeMante (who isn't affiliated at all with the camp). Don't be surprised if at the screen test the camera doesn't even work.....it happened in Austin 2009...scam, scam, scam.......I just feel bad for the broken hearts of all the children that had the big smiles when approached!
