Indy Models, Statement Models / Not paying
This "agency" that goes by many names (Indy Models, 1st Place Models, Statement Models), as does the owner (Allen Knauer aka Allen Longstreet), owes many models for jobs that were completed in early to mid 2008. When contacting the agency-- which now answer the phone "Agency Models" no doubt due to the fact that they have a difficult time remembering their multiple aliases-- you are never given an honest answer as to when the money is coming (that is IF you can actually get someone on the phone). They will tell you "the check is in the mail" and then three months later tell you that it's still coming. I don't think the mail was that slow even in the days of horseback delivery. Then I see online they've told other girls they were waiting on clearance from the courts to send out money because they're doing a restructuring?? At the very least, pick a story and stick to it.
This company has owed me a thousand dollars for over a year. I completed the job and the company that I was contracted to work for adored me and told us when we were working that they had paid Allen upfront for the services so they were certain the turn around time for our checks would be quite quick.
Unfortunately that wasn't the case and Allen Knauer aka Allen Longstreet is a con artist.
DO NOT work for Allen Knauer (or any of his multiple personalities) or any of his "agencies" unless of course you like working for free or enjoy being harassed when you try to collect your fees.
