Today I got an email from a male talent (let's call him T) who said that a photographer called Edwin claimed to be the boss of Perspectives Models and this guy did a shoot with the photographer.
This Edwin guy is a fraud as I own and operate Perspectives Models and I'm the only one who takes the photos. I'm trying to track down who is this person making use of our agency name to conduct shoots.
Below are extracts from exchanges of emails I had with T. Subject title of the emails was "deal".
T: hi kirk, hows bizzzz, just got back from kl. like to meet with edward please. thank yo'
My reply: We do not have any person called Edward with us.
T: i meen edwin your boss
My reply: Who is Edwin and why does he claim to be the owner of Perspectives?
If you are speaking the truth, then he is a fraud and carrying out fraudulent transactions. Please provide more information regarding the deal that he is making apparently in Perspectives' name. I own and operate Perspectives Models Pte Ltd, which is registered with the government of Singapore, under my name. We will seek legal advice on how to stop his activities to prevent further use of the agency name for his illegal activities.
T: he is the ****ing guy that took the picktures of me
My reply: Let me get this correct. You did a shoot with a guy called Edwin who claimed to be the boss of Perspectives Models and now you are unable to contact him?
How did you get in contact with him previously? Any email and contact number?
What deal did you reach with this guy? You probably need to make a police report and get the help of the police to find him.
T: look guys donot email me or phone . leave me along...you and thoes english can **** off.
T: why dont you come talk you ****ing punk
So at the end of this all fiasco, we got flack for something that we never did and suffered damage to our reputation. I wonder how many talents were also conned by this Edwin guy !
