REM Studios / Embezzlement by owner Robert Latte
Robert Latte of REM Studios recruited us in October of 2008 and signed a contract with us to get us prepared and signed up for the IMTA convention, in New York. He was supposed to be there as well to represent us as our director. While contestants/students had paid him thousands of dollars in advance to participate in this weeklong convention, he did not show up at all, had not made any reservations nor paid a dime for our hotel, which was part of the contract we signed, nor did he pay for the IMTA convention, also included in our contract. He was unreachable, and there was no explanation provided for his absence or delinquency in payments to the third parties mentioned. If it was not for the kindness of the Hilton Hotel and IMTA staff, we would have had to return home, without anything.
