Academy of Cinema and Television ACT A.C.T. THE - Arizona / Re: Act ripping people using Disney and Nickledeon names
ACT is doing false advertisements and attracting people to sign up their children who will become stars. Lily who is their main spokesman announced in front of the room full of people that there are 1000 children and only 30 kids will be selected. All the parents were excited and everyone was trying hard to get their kids do the best i front of the camera. The camera man had no interest and was sitting lazily and was not even bothered too check any information on the forms that the kids were handing him. Did not even care to check on the sheet to assess the kids talent. Lily gave us her phone no. and said that this is her personal number which she does not give to everyone and our child has a lot of potential as he has a middle eastern look. She asked us to call her the next day and we called her late in the evening and she said that we were on the list and she wanted to see us ASAP and asked us to bring our child along We had a long 2 hr. drive and it was Monday evening and she was fine with that. When we got there she asked our child questions and said that he will make 300% money and said to us that if we do not register him that means we do not love our child. Our child was sitting right there listening to the conversation and she gave us a paper and asked us to sign it and said it is only a formality and she has more families waiting outside so we should hurry up.
Lily also said that the schedule will be given to us once we pay the money upfront.
A month later when we went to attend the 1st class we saw a zoo of crowd and there were 300 or more kids than 30 kids. We asked ACT to refund the money and they refused. We contacted the Attorney General's office but they do not want to do anything either.
We are ripped...Ripped real hard in this tough economy
If anyone has any answers how to get out of it will like to know...
Cannot understand how ACT is doing scam around the country and nothing is being done
