Recently I spoke with him and I wasn’t aware that he was being investigated for fraud. He recently changed his company name to BANG MODELS which is located at 6959 Auburn Ave Suite 244 Atlanta Ga 30312. He ended hiring this guy who supposedly was in the recording business. He hired him to be the director of sales.

Doug Hill fired him because he realized that Steven was trying to take over his company and start his own. He spoke to us about scouting out new talent. I went there for what I thought was a model call. I said yes I would be interested in making some extra cash on the side.

I went for training and the first day seemed alright. Steven said that he bought out Doug’s contract and that he renamed the company Bang Models. It didn’t sound too fishy at first till today when only 3 of the trainees showed up and Doug said he was in the area and needed to check on the studio, invited us in, had no idea we had a meeting with Steven. So he sat us down and started to explain what had taken place. It all made sense that these guys are full of crap.

1) why do you need people to scout out new models when you supposedly have 1000’s to contend with?

2) why change your name unless you're running away from something?

I also have heard that he has taken pictures of aspiring models and they never received them. Also that he never followed up on the talent that he had we are talking 2 years without calls.

That in my opinion is pretty bad.

Oh, by the way, he was planning on getting the hell out of dodge, thought of leaving town tonight and shut down the operation.
