Not just any scam...
But quite a blatant one. All the one-star reviews here describe the scene pretty accurately.
William Reynolds (if that is his real name) is a special kind of a crook - the one that takes advantage of naive people who dream about getting their kids into the show business. Except he is not very good at it - you can see the phony from a mile away. He reminded me of an old goat - arrogant, smelly and rude. He could not care less about you or your child, but he would brag shamelessly and incessantly about himself to a complete stranger. There's something seriously wrong with this guy. His shtick is lame and transparent - all he talks about is money, money, money and he lies and lies and lies to your face, sometimes contradicting himself in a single sentence. It would actually be funny to watch this pathetic worn-out ignoramus desperately trying to eke out a living by brazen deception except that he apparently manages to bamboozle enough suckers to keep the charade going - and, as a result, people get hurt.
When I refused to believe his fairy tales and fork over a $99 "deposit for pictures", he became visibly nervous and hurriedly tried to make me change my mind with more lies about the "opportunity slipping away" - kinda like a used car salesman when you are about to leave the lot full of "lemons". I just laughed.
How does this clown sleep at night?
