Press Talent Management
Press Talent Management and Developement, SCAM ALERT-BRANDIE FROMMELT Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, Nevada
31st of May, 2011 by User117721
Press Talent Management and Developement in Las Vegas, NV off Charleston Blvd is the same as Tru Talent Management. They are/were both owned and operated by Brandie Frommelt. Do your research on this company before ever signing up! Ms. Brandie Frommelt started out a "talent and modeling agency" in Salt Lake City, UT as Fashion Inc., then changed the name to Soleil and then to Tru Talent after getting such bad press. Now she has changed the Las Vegas Tru Talent to be Press Talent Management and Developement because she wants to keep scamming people and thinks everyone is so stupid and won't figure it out. Her "talent scouts" will approach everyone and anyone to get their name and number; many times using fake auditions or fake castings they have done just to get your information; once they have it they have someone call you to schedule an "audition" where again they will say and do anything to get you in their door; that's when the real "magic" aka HIGH PRESSURE sales tactics begin. They are just out for your MONEY. Make sure you google and read from the first 2-3 pages about Tru Talent Management, Brandie Frommelt, and now Press Talent Management before ever stepping foot in their doorway. You will save yourself a TON of money and disappointment to do your research first. Brandie Frommelt only cares about herself and how much money she can get out of you. Don't let her fool you; she doesn't care about anyone but herself. If you made the mistake of signing up with this scam of a company make sure to contact your state's division of consumer protection, the bbb, and your local news channel's investigative reporter!! Brandie-karma really does always win! It may have taken me several years, but I am ensuring that your karma finally catches up to you.

I've been approached in regards to my 2 1/2 yr old daughter twice now. Just tonight a girl gave me a card for Press Management and when I looked at the address I noticed it is on Charleston Blvd just like Tru Talen. This lady is truly a lowlife. The girl who approached us tried to get my # which I would not give out and did not want to take no for an answer. She was telling me how I could put some $ in my kid's piggy bank for college. Seriously! What scammer tries to hit up litle kids and TAKE $ from their piggy bank?
There are enough parents pushing down the doors of actual agencies trying to get their child in the entertainment industry that you really don't need lurking "scouts" trying to round up talent. What's sad is that they hang around malls, parks, playgrounds, shopping centers etc. They STALK YOUNG CHILDREN! BEWARE!

Attention Everyone:
All what you are reading on the internet about Press Talent/Tru Talent management is true. They were
ordered to shut down in the state of utah by the consumer protection division. Since then she has changed her name for the fourth time from Tru Talent to Press Talent Management and Development and has signed her company over to a young woman by the name of Laura Mcdowell. Brandie Frommelt is training her employees to lie and say Press Talent bought out Tru Talent which is a complete lie, she is still operating this scam. Anyone knows that if a "talent agent" wants to represent you there should be no money involved, if so very little for photograpgy not $1500. Brandie Frommmelt/ Laura Mcdowell will also take your money even if you have paid off your contract in full, they also hold fake auditions to make them look like they are trying to get you work when in fact they are not even sending the photos out. Brandie Frommelts sales agents are selling "lifetime photograpgy" which you still have to pay for your rights of your photos at $40.00 per print with a minimum of 6 photos every time you do another photoshoot. All of the photos look the same and you will never get any work! This company needs to get shut down in Las Vegas just like they did in in Utah, we do not need this in our community Isnt it bad enough?!

Please do extensive research on this company before you sign ANYTHING! To see the press release from Utah visit ecp.utah.gov and it is the 2nd link on the page. If you have made the mistake of signing with Tru/Press talent contact your local consumer protection division.

Sincerely,
Another scammed customer

She is now approaching students at UNLV telling them they have a very marketable look. We did have an appt. for my 18 yr old son to see them just out of curiosity, but after reading this and researching...I don't think so. So thank you for the heads up.

My friend was approched by a "Tru Talent" customer or shark (changed name to Press Talent and it sounded ok. Then I went for an interview and all seemed good. I asked about fees and was told when my son gets work, they only take 10%. She tried to sell Dawn ullivan tried to sell me a portfolio package and I told her that we had one already. Then all of a sudden she gets up and shakes our hands. Im like did I miss something here? I then tried to create a profile online and could not. I set up an appointment with someone else, then transfered to someone else then back to Dawn Sullivan who our original apointment was with. I was met in the lobby by Dawn and was told she was swamped and could not meet with me (although she is the one that set the appointment). I am so glad we did not pay the $1400 that they wanted to charge for the portfolio. If I had forked over that money I would have been pissed!
In other words stay away. They get you hopes up high and then pull the rug from under you and if you don't agree to their fees good luck on anything else!
They are a scam and rip off.

Approached my teen daughter at the Fashion Show Mall (trolling) and got her information telling her that she should work conventions and they hire people for that! Called and set up an "audition" at their W. Charleston office... A little research later and she will NOT be going to this SCAMMER!!!
How pitiful! Even their Facebook page is misleading...

I was approached in a local target store. She was smooth semi-professional. Her pitch was a bit fast and very little eye contact. Her attention was to my pricey purse. She said she seen from the moment I parked my BMW and ran into the store because she had to get my number. I had to ask her for a card twice. After looking it over it has one name literally scratched out and in hand writing "Bruce Wayne" like Bat Man, Bruce Wayne. Glad I ran across this. God bless the posting partying. I appreciate you! God watch over the future targets. I pray that these scammers are annoyed in some way to repay for the actions.

They have stopped me and my son at Walmart twice this summer. I figured google them after they told me no portfolio was nessecary, no money just come in for an audition. I am so glad I read about this first and didn't go in that place.

I was approached at UNLV by a guy claiming his name was "Bruce Wayne" and said, "No relation to Batman I swear" trying to be all friendly and what not. I figured I'd see what this really was about simply out of curiosity because I have no interest in acting/modelling at all. So I got the call from someone named "Justina" at the agency and she was very persuasive (or "well-trained" I might say). After I did some thorough research on the company and tried to call them back to cancel my appointment. You can't even leave a message because their voicemail box is full, probably off cancellations and complaints. Glad I looked it up!

I made a mistake of signing my daughter with them, but I realized how wrong I was right away. So I didn't make any payments other than the first one of $100. Now they are suing me !!! Any suggestions on how I fight this scam? thank you

I too was approached by some lady in the Meadows Mall a few days ago and she asked if I had been interested in some Promo Modeling and of course I fell for it because that's what I'm looking to get into. So I called my cousin and told her what had just happened and the first this she asked was "It is Press Talent!, if so it's a scam." I didn't realize at the time that I hadn't asked what agency she was with...So I gave her my number and a couple of days later I got a phone call from Press Talent, decided to do some research of my own and didn't go to the auditions.

They are still in business. My mother has the kids (my 3 and 1 year old) for the summer. She was so convincing, but I got suspicious after talking to them (Dawn) on the phone. I should have followed my instinct and not paid the initial $750. I was asking for their name and info, and Dawn avoided answering and was talking fast. Once I finally got the e-mail from them, I started doing some research which I should have done first. Now, I have to figure out how to get my money back and back out. Don't most states have a buyers' remorse within 3 days? Thank you all for your posts.

OMG Thank you. I had an audition for Aug. 6, 2013... A lady named Alicia Ross got ahold of my partner and I while we were on a date in the Fashion Show Mall, that same woman approached me a year earlier at school with my friend at UNLV, and in 2011 she approached me at the Meadows. These people are insane... Thank you for the extra info.

WOW! although I read all of this after my 8yo daughter was approached at the mall. I had to learn the hard way, they had an answer for everything I said I read online, they really got me when she told me several times that if I decided to do it I could not get any money back, BUT I could just leave and not pay anymore if I decided I didn't like it. After several months she went to 4-5 auditions, and everything was something I would have to pay money for IMTA or IPOP, and even a beauty Paget so if your parents could pay "you made it". When I decided not to go anymore, I got a phone call about why I had not paid, I told them what I had been told when we signed up. The first thing she said was "do you have that in writing" I pulled out my paperwork and it was not in writing, I just assumed it was, as many times as she told me in the meeting. They know there is nothing you can do if you don't have it in writing, they offered to let me out of the contract if I paid half of what I owed $160.00 it was a tough lesson, people will lie to your face to steal your money. TOTAL SCAM they should be ashamed
