Brian Takita: CL Scam Alert Upate

Brian Takita

Beware of hiring or being hired by Brian Takita.

To date he has not paid his employee for the work she did as a personal assistant for his alleged “client”, later to be revealed as his “live-in-girlfriend” Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky.  A judgment was issued by the Department of Labor in favor of  the plaintiff on April 22, 2013 for work she performed in July of 2012 during the San Diego Comic Con.  A Takita “associate” sent death threats to the plaintiff as a result of her pursuing the matter and sharing her experience. Takita and/or associate retaliated by hacking plaintiff’s email, filing a fraudulent Rip Off Report against plaintiff, and purchasing domain names in her name.

To date Mr. Takita has not paid  the assistant. We have knowledge and reason to believe that Takita and Volianova together orchestrated this CL scam.  To  learn more about this situation please read my previous posts.

Brian Takita’s Alleged Occupation: Full Stack Web Engineer

Comic Con Alert ~ Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barksy

Nadeea's New Look  If you’re in San Diego for Comic Con 2013 be on the look out for these individuals: Nadeea Volianova, Brian Takita and Heather Anne Scott. All three individuals are involved in a 2012 Comic Con SCAM. 

Mr. Brian Takita, acting as “manager” to alleged “singer/actress” (chuckle) Nadeea Volianova, ran a CL ad hiring an assistant for her. Long story short ~ after working FOUR DAYS as a SLAVE to the yellow-glove-wearing, germ-phobic Volianova, the assistant was never paid. The assistant raised the issue with the Department of Labor and got an order in her favor. Takita refused the certified demand letter sent to his house in Topanga Canyon, and till this day refuses to pay the assistant. 

Volianova got off the hook pretty easily. This all fell on Takita but truth of the matter is that Volianova should have made good and paid the assistant. She chose not to do the right thing. But, not all is quite right in Volianova land ~ if you know what I mean. One can’t expect Perrier from a faucet. 

Volianova has as many personalities as she does costumes. You’ll find her sneaking into both Comic Con itself, as well as all the after parties. She’ll have someone (anyone, really) take a photo of her with whatever “celebrity” she can find. She’ll then fabricate an elaborate “story” about the encounter.

But, not all fall prey to this scamlebrity. There are several security guards from LA who, if they recognize her “disguise” will have her tossed out of the parties. If it weren’t for her total lack of talent and Cruella DeVille personality she’d probably rise to the D-list.

I’ve included a current photo of Volianova. Click through some of the other posts on this site to see more; as well as photos of Brian Takita, Heather Anne Scott and oh, how could I forget ITO KOBIASHI who sent me death threats for posting this blog.  Nice bunch…

“Scamlebrities” Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova: Malicious Con Artists Exposed

040Mr. Takita ran a CL ad in July 2012 and hired a personal assistant to work for 4 days during the San Diego Comic Con, for his “client/live-in partner” Nadeea Volianova (aka Yana Barsky).  Volianova stated that Takita would pay the assistant. Takita failed to pay the assistant and challenged her in stating, “take me to court, you’ll never get paid.”

The assistant’s main responsibilities included: “sneaking” Volianova into industry events for which she lacked credentials, “sneaking” her into Comic Con for which she had no tickets, and then asking “celebrities” if Volianova could have her photo taken with them.

Since then, Mr. Takita, Volianova and “friend” Ito Kobiashi have harassed the assistant as follows:

1) Sent death threats (per Ito Kobiashi alleged on behalf of the Russian Mafia)

2) Filed a false and defamatory Rip Off Report

3) Maliciously purchased a domain name in the assistant’s name and an additional domain name that knowingly infringed on the assistant’s trademarks and intellectual property rights.

4) Hacked her email

Don’t let scammers like Takita, Volianova (Barsky), and Kobiashi bully you.

Brian Takita & Nadeea Volianova: Ripoff Report Response

I was unfamiliar with RIPOFF REPORTS until I learned that Mr. Brian Takita & Nadeea Volianova filed an inaccurate, harassing report about me. They neglected to include their names. Resultantly, I felt it was necessary to file an accurate version of this matter with Ripoff Reports.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this matter it involves my answering a CL ad posted by Mr. Brian Takita, being hired as a personal assistant for his client (Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky), working 4 days at the San Diego Comic Con as her assistant and then not being paid as promised. Additionally, Mr. Takita, Nadeea and a friend of theirs – Ito Kobiashi have resultantly retaliated against me, posted an inaccurate & harassing Ripoff Report, along with death threats.

Brian Takita Files FICTIONAL RIPOFF REPORT

It has just been brought to my attention that Mr. Brian Takita and/or Nadeea Volianova posted an inaccurate and harassing “Ripoff Report” in an attempt to further harass me for publicizing the fact that I was hired by Brian Takita under the promise of payment, worked 4 days as a personal assistant for Nadeea Volianova in July of 2012 – and was never paid. What I find most interesting about the FICTIONAL report is that Mr. Takita failed to include his, or his client’s name  in it. Hmm…

Below, I have included the link to Mr. Takita’s inaccurate & harassing report. You will find my rebuttal below that report. In that rebuttal I demand that Mr. Takita and Nadeea provide proof for their allegations.  I will gladly post any proof they provide here on this blog. But, don’t expect to see any proof because Mr. Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova aren’t being honest with you and they simply don’t have any – but I do. On the internet it’s easy to mislead readers. In court, well, that an entirely different matter…

Fictional RIPOFF REPORT by Brian Nadeea & Nadeea Volianova

Brian Takita: Is this a SCAM? You tell me.

Brian Takita: Scam Artist? You tell me.

Brian Takita: Scam Artist? You tell me.

Brian Takita’s text message response to my previous post (Brian Takita Fails Fair Business Practices 101):  “I always wanted to pay you.  I just never had enough information.”

HUH?!? Of course you did, Brian! That’s why you  AND Nadeea, AND your assistant HEATHER ANNE SCOTT, ignored my phone calls, text messages, emails and demand letters for 2 MONTHS!

How about this?  I’d like to give Brian Takita  an opportunity to redeem himself.  I’ve sent a demand letter to both his home AND his workplace at Milyoni Inc. – THE LEADER IN SOCIAL ENTERTAINMENT.  That was almost two months ago. Takita swears he never received EITHER.  Neither letter was returned. Interesting, don’t you think?  I even prefaced the sending of the letter to Milyoni with a phonce call, so I know (and they know) they were expecting it.  Could Milyoni be the self-alleged LEADER because the individuals who work for them never PAY their employees? Hey, it’s a creative way to cut expenses. Not great for the reputation, but keeps the bank balance on the bright side.Takita has given me all kinds of orders. The most current being, as you already know if you read my 2 previous posts, to REMOVE my posts about him and then MAYBE  after it has been down for a MONTH he’ll pay me what he FEELS he owe me.  For all the employers out there – isn’t that how EVERYONE does business?!?

Well, I only realized today that I haven’t given Mr. Takita any orders, outside of the ignored official demand letter sent by my attorney.  I’ve never been good at giving orders.  I like the feel of level ground. I like opportunities. So, I’m creating an OPPORTUNITY for Mr. Takita to REDEEM himself in the eyes of cyberspace, and whoever else matters to him.

It goes something like this. No, it goes exactly like this, because this post is the OFFICIAL REDEMPTION OPPORTUNITY.

Dear Mr. Takita,

WHEN you pay me WHAT you owe me as outlined in the DEMAND letter you RECEIVED I will post a NEW BLOG letting everyone know you redeemed yourself.  I will NOT however remove my posts being that they are TRUE and FACTUAL.  Opting to redeem yourself  does not  mean that you didn’t SCREW ME in the first place. (Remember how you said, “We don’t have a contract I don’t have to pay you. Go ahead and sue me you’ll never get the money anyway?”)

So, the posts stay up. They only went up because you refused to pay me.  But, should  you choose to redeem yourself, at least the world will know that in the END you DID THE RIGHT THING.  I really shouldn’t even give you this opportunity. You don’t deserve it. I say this because it is true, and because the course of action I’m moving forward with could potentially reward me  substantially MORE.  I digress.

In closing, you already have my address ON THE DEMAND LETTER(S). So, when I RECEIVE payment from you I’ll post a blog to let everyone know.  Until then, you are Brian Takita, Man of False Promises.  Is this a SCAM?  You tell me.

Dear Readers: To date I have not been paid for the services I rendered as a “personal assistant” to Brian Takita’s alleged “client” and presumed “live-in buddy” (Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky) during Comic Con San Diego 2012 from July 12 through July 15.

Brian Takita Employment History: (Per his Linked In Public Profile):

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.  I’ll keep you posted. Love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.

Brian Takita Fails Fair Business Practices 101

I have a dilemma. I just got a phone call from Brian Takita (above left), the man who failed to pay me for services I rendered TWO MONTHS AGO, as a personal assistant to his alleged client, Nadeea Volianova (aka Yana Barsky) for 4 days, during Comic Con San Diego, July 12th – July 15th, 2012.

Brian is upset about one of my earlier blog posts. It is a post in which I share my experience as Nadeea’s personal assistant.  Brian claims I’ve “slandered” him, and Nadeea. He said he’s getting “a lot of flak from his side” and needs me to take down my blog post.

I told Brian that when he pays me, I’ll take the post down and that had he paid me in the first place, it would have never gone up.  He proceeded to argue with me about the amount due. He said, “There weren’t supposed to be any wages paid for that position. I didn’t even know you were hired.”  This is despite the fact that both his client, Nadeea, and his assistant Heather Scott (the woman who posted the CL help wanted ad and hired me on behalf of Mr. Takita) stated that Brian was responsible for payment. This is despite the fact that I have emails from Brian Takita stating that he is the “only” responsible paying party. This is despite my possessing emails stating the amount of payment. Brian also claims to have “never received” the demand letter sent by my attorney.  That’s interesting in that two copies were sent – one to his home, and the other to his place of employment, Milyoni Entertainment, Inc.  In the next breath, Brian mentions the demand letter.

Are Mr. Takita’s inconsistent statements due to some situational Alzheimers?  Or, could they be a symptom of the deadly Pinocchio Virus that’s going around?

First off, I haven’t “slandered” anyone. I’ve simply shared my “experience”.  Secondly, it’s clear that I would have NEVER HEARD FROM BRIAN TAKITA AGAIN, if I hadn’t posted a blog about my experience.  When this all went down in July Brian stated,” We don’t have a written contract, I don’t have to pay you. Go ahead and sue me, you’ll never get paid anyway.” What kind of person does this? What kind of person says these things?

And now, only AFTER Mr. Takita read my blog, is he interested in a POSSIBLE sketchy payment plan.  He made some lame offer to pay me HALF of what he “feels” he owes me IF I take the blog post down, and the other half AFTER THE BLOG HAS BEEN DOWN FOR A MONTH. WHAT?!?!? I think it’s safe to assume that Mr. Takita failed both Symbolic Logic AND Fair Business Practices 101.

I have a dilemma.  As I already stated, I’m sure I would have NEVER heard from Mr. Takita again, had I not posted a blog about my experience. A blog that just so happens to spread a bit of public light on what seems a dark character. If I take the blog down, will I be doing a disservice to others, like myself, who may fall prey to this finger-pointing threesome?  I have no reason to believe that even if I take the blog down Mr. Takita will ever pay me because he has demonstrated to me that he  just isn’t a man of his word.

So, what to do?  When I desperately needed the money that I EARNED and was PROMISED by Mr. Takita, Mr. Takita ignored my emails and phone calls, as did Nadeea, as did Heather Anne Scott. With that said, and after MUCH deliberation I’ve made a decision.

In the best interest of all, and in the name of principle, the blog post stays.  I will move forward with the course of action in place.  It’s just not ok to screw people like this and have a sudden change of heart because your dirty laundry is unexpectedly hung for all to see.

Truth is, I’ll probably never see the money I earned, but hopefully, the fact that I’ve shared this information will prevent others from experiencing such loss.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I’ll keep you posted. Exercise caution when answering Craig’s List ads. Hope your judgement is better than mine…

Moral of the story: If you are going to screw someone by not paying them, expect to read all about it on someone’s blog.
