Decided on September 28, 2010
Supreme Court, Suffolk County

The People of the State of New York, by ANDREW M. CUOMO, Attorney General of the State of New York, Petitioner,

against

City Model and Talent Development, INC. and JACQUELINE D'ALELIO, Respondents.

09-22233

ANDREW M. CUOMO, ESQ., Attorney General

Attorney for Petitioner

300 Motor Parkway, Suite 205

Hauppauge, New York 11788

La REDDOLA, LESTER &

ASSOC., LLP

Attorney for Respondents

600 Old Country Road, Suite 224

Garden City, New York 11530

Jeffrey Arlen Spinner, J.

This is a proceeding pursuant to Executive Law 63 (12), Arts and Cultural Affairs Law 37.07, and General Business Law 349, 350 for an order and judgment (i) permanently enjoining the respondents from violating Arts and Cultural Affairs Law 37.07 by representing to the public that it can secure employment subject to purchasing a photography contract from them, (ii) permanently enjoining the respondents from violating Arts and Cultural Affairs Law 37.07 by acting as an agent or manager and accepting fees for photography services, (iii) permanently enjoining the respondents from violating General Business Law 349, 350 by misrepresenting to the public its selectivity and its ability to secure employment, (iv) permanently enjoining the respondents from engaging in the illegal, unfair, deceptive, and unlawful practices alleged in the petition, (v) directing the respondents to make full monetary restitution and pay damages to all aggrieved customers, known and unknown, who paid for photography contracts, (vi) directing the respondents to pay any and all small claims judgments entered against them in favor of customers who paid for photography contracts, (vii) directing the [*2]respondents to pay a civil penalty in the sum of $5,000.00 to the State of New York, pursuant to General Business Law 350-d, for each deceptive act committed by the respondents in violation of General Business Law article 22-A, and (viii) directing the respondents to pay costs pursuant to CPLR 8303 (a) (6).

According to the petition, Jacqueline D'Alelio is the principal officer, shareholder, and owner of City Model and Talent Development, Inc. ("CMT"), a corporation engaged in the business of talent management with an office in Islandia, New York. The petitioner claims, in part, that the respondents engage in deceptive business practices which result in financial harm to members of the public. More specifically, the petitioner claims that representatives of CMT approach children and their parents at public venues, advising them that they have the "look" which would make them successful as models or actors, and that when they appear at CMT's office for their interviews, through a series of false statements and high pressure sales tactics, they are tricked into purchasing expensive photo shoots based on false promises of future work.

RIP OFF!!!!DO NOT GO THERE!!!DO NOT PAY THEM!!!!!!
I went there last Sunday 9/22/2013. When we opened the door they were like omg you child is beautiful !!! We will put him in magazines next week! One of the agents Bill Davis (its probably not his real name) took us to his office and the guy gave my son some toys. Then he showed us single pages from magazines saying that his company placed these people there!!!!he was like look at this and that...your kid will make from $50-$250per hr. just sign the contract and we are all set....and right there I knew its a scam!!!i asked him if my child will need the entertainment work permit and he asked me what it was!!!!!Really???!!!! then I asked him how this company works and he said that we have to pay $1500 so they can take pictures and put them on their horrible website. I told him I will not pay it, then he said $1000...i said no, he said how about $750. i said no.... i told him i will take his business card and do research about the company and I will call him next week. he said NO. you are not ready to do this then he turned to my son and asked him to return all the toys and asked us to leave!!!!! WAW!!really!!!when we left, I Google them and guess what- the first thing I saw was the RIP OFF REPORT!!!They do not even have their own domain; their email address is on Gmail!!!!Hopefully this will tell you something!!!
PLEASE DO NOT GO THERE!!!NO LEGITIMATE COMPANY WOULD ASK FOR MONEY!!!!!
