Scam Alert: Ito Kobiashi, Brian Takita, Nadeea Volianova – Death Threat Email

I answered an ad on CL and took a 4-day job as an assistant to a female by the name of Nadeea Volianova during Comic Con, San Diego. I was scammed. Nadeea Volianova stated that her live-in boyfriend/manager, Brian Takita, was responsible for payment. Mr. Takita refused to pay me.I informed both parties that I would initiate a claim with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement. I did and I won. There is an order/judgment in place for Mr. Takita to pay. Mr. Takita has stated, “You’ll never see that money.”In retaliation for my initiating the claim either Mr. Takita himself, or Nadeea Volianova posted a false and malicious Rip Off Report under my name. Additionally, I have received death threats from one of their friends – Ito Kobiashi. I’ve attached the threats here. Interestingly, Mr. Kobiashi sends another email now that a few years have passed, alleging he ” would never make a death threat.” Unfortunately, for Mr. Kobiashi, I have saved the original CL ad, all the messages exchanged between myself and Volianova and myself and Takita, along with all the emails.When the DOL order amount due me is paid in full, and when the false, malicious  Rip Off Report posted under the false name of “Natalie” is removed, I will remove this blog. I only created this blog because I was scammed. You people are not going to intimidate me. Eventually, you will be brought to justice because I’m going to continue seeking justice.

Mr. Kobiashi’s emails are below. In the first he asks if I “care about living”. In the second he threatens to kill me. In the third he denies meeting, knowing, or contacting me and alleges he wants to resolve this matter, “peacefully and respectfully.” All three emails were sent from the same email address.

Again, Mr. Kobiashi, I’ve been asking for 3 years to be paid, and for the false, malicious, Rip Off Report to be removed. The ball has always been in Brian Takita’s court. Mr. Takita can contact the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement to pay his debt.

Hello. My name is Ito Kobiashi and I am listed in your complaint. I can only say that I have never met you nor ever contacted you in any way. I also would never make any death threats. If you did receive any threatening emails from my email address, it is probably written by some one else with out my knowledge. I do know both Nadeea and B. Takita but do not have any involvement with this issue. I have recently asked Nadeea and Brian to pay you so this blog can be taken down. With the proper negotiations, I can get this resolved. Let me know if you want to work this out in a respectful and peaceful manner. I think you already have my email address.

Regards,
Ito

 Yes, Mr. Kobiashi, I already have your email address.

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…

On April 22, 2013, the Labor Commissioner issued an Order, Decision, or Award in favor of the plaintiff, and a judgment in the amount of $2,875.01 in the Superior Court against Mr. Brian Takita for hiring an employee and refusing to pay her.

Mr. Takita failed to appear at any of the Department of Labor Hearings, and has neglected to contact the plaintiff to arrange payment of the debt.

Comic Con is right around the corner.  Unsuspecting CL job seekers beware.  Brian Takita and/or Heather Scott (Brian Takita Assistant in 2012) may be running ads in San Diego, CA in search of a “personal assistant” for  Nadeea Volianova  ~ a Russian “singer/actress” aka Yana Barsky.

In 2012 I answered a CL ad, placed by Mr. Brian Takita. I was hired and worked for 4 days as a personal assistant for Nadeea Volianova aka Yana Barsky.  Mr. Takita never paid me.  I opened a case with the Department of Labor and a judgment has been issued in my favor. Along the way Mr. Takita’s associate,  Ito Kobiashi sent me death threats. Be on the look out for these individuals.  When answering CL ads be sure to get everything in writing. Get physical addresses of those involved  and have all parties sign an agreement as to the rate and means of payment for your services.

“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

* * * Be on the look-out for these individuals. * * *Use caution when answering Craig’s List ads.

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

Click on the link below to read the NOTICE OF PAYMENT DUE – the Labor Commissioner’s Order, Decision or Award served to Mr. Takita and dated February 13, 2013. To date, Mr. Takita has failed to respond to the notice.

Alert: Brian Takita + Nadeea Volianova = Bad Behavior

A photo I took of Ms. Volianova during the 4 days I worked as her personal assistant during Comic Con 2012. A job for which I was promised payment but never received.

In addition to the recent “defamation” and “death threats” directed at me,  by Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova, I recently became aware that Brian Takita, Nadeea Volianova and or Ito Kobiashi (sender of death threats alleged on behalf of the Russian Mafia) hacked my email, purchased domain names infringing upon my trademark and personal identity, and filed a false, defaming RipOff report.I have knowledge and reason to believe that Brian Takita and Nadeea Volianova continue to spread false, defaming, slanderous statements  (in spite of the recent Cease and Desist letter sent to them on my behalf) by my attorney.

F.Y.I. In July 2012 I answered a CL ad posted by Brian Takita. I was hired under the promise of payment, to work 4 days as Nadeea Volianova’s (aka Yana Barksy) personal assistant during SD Comic Con 2012. I was never paid for those 4 days. I filed a DOLSE suit against the parties and began blogging about my experience. Resultantly, I have since been defamed, harassed, received death threats, had my email hacked, and suffered personal identity and trademark infringement by the individuals aforementioned.

I did a follow-up with my attorney moments ago.  I asked if he had heard anything from Brian Takita.  My attorney stated, “On July 30, 2012 at 2:18 pm, Mr. Takita phoned our call center. He didn’t leave a forwarding number or any other information.”

What’s my point? Brian Takita has repeatedly stated that he NEVER RECEIVED THE DEMAND LETTER(S) sent to both his home, and workplace – Milyoni, Inc . Why would Mr. Takita phone my attorney’s office if he never received the demand letters?

My first blog about this matter wasn’t posted until AUGUST 19th! I started blogging about this because Takita alleged he hadn’t received the demand letters, and still refused to pay me!

I double-checked with my attorney about my right to post these blogs.  My attorney informed me that because of a little thing called, “freedom of speech” I have the right to post these truthful blogs.

Dear Mr. Takita,

Pay me what you owe me and I will let the world know you did.

Standing my ground,

Carolyn

P.S. Let’s not forget Ms. Heather Anne (Heather Anne Scott) – the assistant with whom I communicated via email.  The assistant who placed the Craig’s List ad on behalf of Mr. Takita.  The assistant who warned me, via email, about their  “difficult” client, Nadeea.

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.

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.
