Watta freakin reason there from a model who just agreed to shoot ...

    Thanks all, who contributed to this thread. Two contributions have made me more determined to pursue vigorously should the Monday deadline for a refund not be met. The first is the one above; the second is the earlier revelation that model was in Singapore while saying she was abroad etc. I don't think anyone should be treated like this.

    PS: I too am owed "credit" by an organiser. But enough has been said in CS, I think , if its the same one referred to a few posts up. Grateful if this thread is kept to the issue with this model; and maybe another thread can be opened if the matter with the organiser still needs airing.

    Geoff, deal with this swiftly. Think of it as doing this mannequin (literally) a favor. Her reckless, irresponsible, and airheaded behavior needs to be shown the stick. Better for her to learn life's lessons on responsibility now, than face far severe consequences later in her life.

    Hey! Hey!

    I have been through a similiar experience where in the parking of my building I parked for the first time, in my car reserved lot, with a motorbike I had. The same day the administration of the building gave me a last warning paper !

    I said "WTF! First time and already a last warning!"

    Then they apologized after I wrote in to thank for their efficiency in watching my space, they did not know the bike was mine!

    Ahahah! Was nice meeting you, Catchlights!

    And I think (from her blog) the issues she mentioned seemed to be about "breaking up with a very close friend".

    Ok ok.....i need to lower my IQ over here........

    You are willing to pay a model which you just known because she says she is desperate for money? I want to be a model too.....maybe I can a cash advance as well.

    Being nice is good but hello.........when it's money involve I do not trust anybody at all.

    Hi firstly to Geoffrey, I am very sorry to backout last minute but I had no intentions whatsoever to cheat on your money. Tho I do also know that a thief wouldnt admit on stealing, yet again, its up to you to believe. I'm sorry.

    To the others, out of the photoshoots that I've had, I have cancelled only 2 shoots, but perhaps thats enough to ruin my modelling career. To all you others I have a bad rep already, and I'm so sorry to those who were involved in this whole situation.

    I know that doing this, I am being very irresponsible& my attitude towards this situation was reckless& immature as quoted from other CS-ers.

    It seems weird but I would just be happy if you guys stopped probing into my personal life as it has zilch to do with the happenings of basically me not turning up for the shoot(s) and supposingly conned. I will transfer the money back to him by stated date& time, and I hope Geoffrey can close this thread. I wouldnt mind if this was just among the CS-ers or people involved in photography but I do not want this to involve my personal life.

    I hope you guys understand, as most of you people I did not offend yet are critisizing me as a person rather than on just the situation stated above.

    Thanks.
    Sorry Geoffrey.

    I'm afraid that your personal life got brought into the picture because they suspect the bona fides of the reasons you gave. And viola, it turned out that they were right.

    If you didn't want it to be exposed, you should have either came in to clarify earlier, or think carefully before you give a reason which can easily be exposed as untrue.
