Discovery Health / Runway Moms — Stole from me
OPEN LETTER TO ALL,
I have had the most ridiculous thing happen to me. I am upset enough to do something about this situation, but I am not quite sure what or how to solve this particular problem. Just believe that since January, 2007, I have been racking my brains and decided to let the public know just what happened to me.
I had what I thought to be an ongoing online relationship the a woman names Tene Prager, working as a billing agent for Runway Moms. This show is seen on Discovery Health Channel daily. I wrote her from the outset as it regards a business opportunity, she responded and we had what I considered an ongoing honest relationship for about 2 to 3 months.
I am a retired school teacher who delight in making crochet items. I even use labels that identify me as such. I have sold some items, but wanted to expand. I wanted, but she suggested that I might have a few of my items displayed on their programs with some of the babies that they have on occasionally, with professional photographs taken of these items giving me the credit as the maker of them. The babies was then to get the items as gifts for this project. She even suggested that I forward her a bio and some samples of my work, suggesting that I call her so that she could put me at ease as it regards her trustworthiness.
I have done all that I can and I am soliciting your help since I believe that there is power in numbers. Let them know that they have crooks, liars, cheats, among them that are employed to cheat old women out of what truly belong to them. Just a few lines should do it and most importantly stop using the products that they make money from as it regards these type of shows.
I forwarded them Runway Moms during the month of November, 2006 under certified postage and by December, 2006, Tene acted as if I did not exist and stopped having a email relationship even though, I continued to write her occasionally. She did ask that I sent my bio to their Stork Magazine editor, Jenefer and silly ole me thought that I would get this professional set of pictures with my bio so that I could use them to increase my business. I guess by now you know that did not happen.
It is my most sincerely belief that Tene took my items and gave them away during the Christmas Holidays without the less bit of thought as to what she has suggested and promised me that she could do.
I am just wondering if what I have written above does anything to your moral standards. If it makes you feel a little sick inside and wonder if this can take place to me, what on earth is the world coming to? This America, after all and this kind of thing just does not happen to good people. Right?
Hindsight is 20/20 and now that I look back, I guess I was just too anxious to get my items out there for the benefit of increasing my small business. Needless to say, I trusted her and see seemed genuine. Now I am ashamed to admit that I took out time and sent about 15 handmade baby items, with labels with the hope that she would do as she promised..
If you are as unhappy for me as I am for me, I would appreciate it if you could let Discovery Health Channel know this since I first saw these people on their channel and made contact with them based upon viewing them there.
Go ahead and let the Discovery Health Channel who is suppose to be spreading goodness as it relates to the total health of all of us just how unhappy and displeased that you are for what happened to me, since they will not let me know that they have heard from me.
Runway Moms is shown on television under the Discovery Health Channel daily and what I know is that someone’s babies are wearing my items without me getting the advertising that I was promised for these clothes. I can also tell you that I was never financially compensated for what happened to me.
