Additional Notes

Complaint: John Casablancas has sent me many letters with a very threatening tone, false information and is pressuring me to pay a fine i dont owe.

Desired Settlement: I want to file a complaint to john casablancas modeling & career center

Business Response: We received your letter concerning Mr. **** *****.  Mr. ***** signed a contract that clearly states on the front, in the largest type on the page, what he needs to do to cancel the contract.  Mr. ***** has never canceled his contract and prior to this email, we have had no correspondence with Mr. *****.
Mr. ***** has not received a single letter from our office, nor has he been assessed a “fine”.  We do not even have a method of assigning a “fine” to someone, nor have we written him, so are not sure to what he is referring. 
Based on this letter, we will consider this notice of his desire to cancel his contract and he will not be eligible to return. 
We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and giving us the opportunity to assist Mr. *****. 
***** ****
