This music producer/indie label owner came to me seeking consultation in September 2015 and yet still refuses to pay his consulting invoice. In this industry when an artist or Independent producer/label owner has no budget and decides to market him or herself they hire consultants for strategic planning, marketing initiatives, sponsorship decks and or press kits. To date, this man, commonly referred to as VA has flat out refused to pay his consulting invoice. In fact, when confronted by my colleagues on social media just today for being a deadbeat and not acknowledging that theft of service is a crime in NY State as well as breaking a verbal agreement, he then derived to have my well respected colleagues to his sites while slandering me in hopes they would offer him guidance and consulting. ….. It is unfortunate that this producer/owner feels that his brand can scam professionals for non payment for his own benefit all the while trying to coerce my colleagues into believing his slander when they full well know that he is nothing than a deadbeat that uses public relations and brand marketers to create and copy documents such as his press kit to solicit deals from brands with no recognition nor press. Watch out for this fraud.
