Thread: Naughty by Nature shuts down, leaves thousands of customers in the lurch

    Arrow Naughty by Nature shuts down, leaves thousands of customers in the lurch

    Was only a matter of time.

    PHOTO studio Naughty by Nature (NBYN) abruptly shut at the weekend, leaving thousands of its customers with unused amounts on their packages.

    Thirty of them who had paid between $1,000 and $4,000 upfront for photo shoots and albums of photographs have banded together on blogs to share information on what they can do. Nine also made a police report yesterday.

    A former employee who declined to be named said 6,000 customers have unfulfilled packages of up to $4,000 each.

    They called me when I was overseas before, and when I told them that the salesperson still insisted on talking.

    Hope they nab the bosses.

    Gives the industry a bad reputation... Soon some form of regulation will surface...

    many years ago, I was sold a car wash package and unwittingly bought a 2 year one..............the company folded in less than a year.

    ever since then, I have been wise NOT to sign up for any thing that has the word "package".

    ...on another thought, "lifetime" as in warranty...hmmm...??!!??

    Maybe with thousands of clients buying those packages with their visa cards, it only prolonged the business' demise.
