January 15, 2004 - UPDATED WITH ADDITIONAL DETAIL - The 'Holy Roller Scamsters' Cortes Randell, Joan Randell and Cathie Rowzie playing a major supporting role BEFORE AND DURING LOU PEARLMAN AND GREG MCDONALD'S INVOLVEMENT - This covers
Studio 58,,,, Emodel,
Options Talent Group,
Trans Continental Talent,
Wilhelmina Scouting Network,
Web Style Network,
Fashion Rock LLC

Religious phony Cort Randell and his position as Secretary for Intercessors For America

If you look at Randell's bio at the Prayer site (let's see how long it stays up there) he lists he "entrepreneured"
(NSMC = National Student Marketing Corporation) - hmmmm... seems to be he left out his conviction for that "successful" company.

Oh and Federal News Service, he seems to have left out the forgery of the shareholder agreement. OOPS.

Another day in lifetime scammer Cort Randell and his wife Joan. Nice legacy Cort that will end with a conviction for the largest model/talent fraud in history.

In 1975, Randell was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to stock fraud conspiracy and three other counts of fraud for misrepresenting the earnings of the corporation. The federal government in its indictment accused Randell of causing those who purchased stock in NSMC to lose millions ofdollars while he made $3 million on the sale of his stock in one year alone.

I stand corrected about the Options Talent statement. It had been a while since I had spoken to the guy I know who was involved. He lost a lot of money on this. I was in his office a few times and I did not see any of the stuff that the Dateline story showed. I think some of the individual offices were run by honest people who were also duped.

It's definitely a small world. I came here looking for information on a guy who was a director of USGA (Ian Rice) and end up finding out about a scam in my own backyard.
