Hello PMAA Parents! Here is the Midday Update:
1.) Mary-Beth Haggerty-Shaw from the Attorney General's office (Investigator, Consumer Protection Section) 206-464-5478 is investigating all of the AG complaints received in Washington. For non-Washington folks, please give her name and number to your respective AG Offices.
2.) Washington Parents: Please call Bellevue Police - Officer Carlson - 425-452-6917 or you may e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and add your name to Case #08-5892. It is critical that he have the names and information for each family to gather all of the counts of fraud. For some reason, Officer Carlson doesn't have many parent names and we need to make sure that he has everyone's name since this is where the alleged (although we know it is real) crime took place. Please note that Officer Carlson is a Field Officer and is hard to reach so e-mail may be best. This is urgent!
3.) There is a company called "ACT" (Not to be confused with the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco) that appears to be holding "auditions" in the Pennsylvania/New Jersey area. We are investigating who they are and what information they are conveying and whether they are associated with PMAA. PARENTS Considering this - BEWARE!! As soon as we have more information we will update the blogspot. If anyone in New Jersey or Pennsylvania is reading this blogspot and can offer more information, please post it under comments of this section. We are monitoring the blogspot and updating it as information comes in.
4.) Need Parent Volunteers!! It has been suggested that in each area, we find what television and radio stations PMAA advertised on, contact the Sales Director for that station and have them forward any information that they have to the Law Enforcement in each jurisdiction investigating the case. In Seattle, it needs to be forwarded to the Bellevue Police Department (Officer Carlson) referencing the case listed above. If you want to volunteer for your area to do this, please post it in the comments section and send an e-mail to email@example.com so that we know this effort is being worked.
5.) 1 More Parent Volunteer - we recently discovered that some people attended "auditions" in Washington at the Bellevue Hyatt, while others attended "auditions" at the Meydenbauer Center. We need a parent to contact the Meydenbauer Center and find out what information they have and again get that forwarded to the Bellevue Police Department referencing the case number. If you are willing to assist, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you find out.
6.) We know of fraud in San Diego, CA; Nashville, TN; Tampa, FL; Albuquerque, NM; Las Vegas, NV; in addition to Seattle, WA. If you know of other locations, please post a comment and let us know what other cities. To assist Law Enforcement, I will set up a blogspot for each city so that names and contact information can be sorted by city. Stay tuned for the blogspot urls.
