These people have now scammed 3 states totaling over $200,000. They post on craigslist that they are hiring 4 camera men for a show thats been picked up on a network to air as a mid season replacement. They call you after you apply and have you sign 4 different contracts and one is a contract on how much you will be paid. They all say LA union camera man pay +15%.

After working for the 45 + hours the pay equals out to around $8600. There are 3 that show up along with the director. They show up, have restaurants, hotels and night clubs, in town sign a contract saying they will provide food, hotels, and limo service in exchange for national exposure and then they never see them again. This went down in November 2012 and now it\'s mid March and we haven\'t heard or seen any money from Downtime Productions. There have now been 3 news stations do a story over this to expose them. He goes by several alias\'s. Handkufz, B Re\', Billy Ray or Billy Ray Scott. His real last name is Walton. He is followed by Mary DoMoe and Giorgio Garcia. They have pulled this scam off in Oregon, Colorado, Oklahoma and now California.

We are seeking to get our money we are paid for performing the work and getting them to stop scamming all these people out of money. Even the director hasn\'t been paid yet.
