These conscienceless sociopaths are taking people's money and ruining peoples lives and special days. The only way we can stop these people is for those of you that have unfortunately given them money is to contact the Santa Monica Attorney General. Here is my experience with them. This is a scam that they are running across the country. They rent space at a virtual office for a week to meet with people that responded to their ads. I live in NYC and they did the same thing here. I lived very close to one of the virtual offices they rented. I suggest to anyone who has gone through this experience and has given them money to report them to the better business bureau and also Contact the Attorney General's office in Santa Monica California where they are from. I sent the Santa M.'s Attorney General a letter which they have kept on file but because Premier didn't get my money they can't investigate until people that were sent in complaints. Good luck to you and I hope you get your money back!

FYI - Due to bad reviews, this company has changed their "corporate" address so potential clients will not associate them with the bad reviews about them being a scam. Also, they "revamped" their web site to look more legit, so some of my comments below may no longer apply. Here is the new address: 11400 Olympic Blvd. Suite 200 Los Angeles, CA 90064 I want to warn other couples about them. Just like the previous reviewers, they constantly called and hounded me, but when I finally received a proposal it was very unprofessional and sloppy). Since my first interactions with the company, several things on their web site have changed, and you can barely find any information (they even took down the list of their employees so it is hard to find information about them). But here is what my experience and research revealed: This is obviously a SCAM for special events or wedding planning. Here are just a few reasons we feel this way: - They charge $50/hr to view potential wedding venues that are normally free to view (check websites such as Here Comes the Guide for POCs that will give you free tours of property - the names for the venues may not match up, but the pictures do). - If you rent/book a venue through them, they charge you an additional 20% on top of the regular cost of the venue. Once you sign with them you are locked in to pay them 20% more for everything even though they do not get get you a discounted price. - The vendors they set you up with are subpar. - They rant and rave about their "expertise" and "special pricing" and "tons of business," but NO ONE has ever heard of them. - They only have one 877 phone number for all their branches "worldwide" (legit companies always give you the option of calling the direct or the toll free number) - All of their email addresses have the domain @premiere-http://productionsinc.com to appear legit, but when any of the employees respond to you, the email is from a @yahoo.com or @gmail.com address (this shows that their domain is a front) - On the Premiere Productions Inc Web site, the main director worldwide, Maria Cook, "appears" on the cover of photo of "Wealth and Style" magazine (There is no such magazine!!!) - They brag about how much business they have, but yet they resort to advertising on http://Craigslist.com??? (Big-time companies do not advertise on http://Craigslist.com.) - This is to hire amateur wedding planners who pay Premiere to Plan your wedding!!! - Their Web site is powered by http://godaddy.com, mainly a Web site which is used by small businesses who cannot afford their own domain/site only. - Their locations have generic building addresses, no specific addresses. They are not located in most of those buildings (if you do a google search, the floors they are supposedly located on are either vacant/for lease or occupied by another company). - They are disorganized because multiple planners will contact you without knowing you already spoken to someone. - Very fake and generic testimonials (testimonial writers have common names and no locations are specified). -It is just sad this company has ripped off several couples and ruined their wedding day. These are just the ones I observed, but I'm sure there are many many more. Don't waste your money on this company! Beware! There are so many other wedding planners out there that are much more professional and will do a great job.

Premiere Productions Inc. billed me out of $5,000. I signed up for one of their 12-week training programs for Event and Wedding Planning. They offer a few packages ranging in price from several hundred dollars to over $10,000. At the time I signed up they told me that I would have the opportunity to make a lot of money while I was paying and going through training. They also promised placement into a full time position as an Event or Wedding Planner. Do not buy the "Earn While You Learn" mumbo jumbo that they will try to sell you on. I made absolutely zero dollars during the training. Actually, I ended up having to shell out more money during the course of the training program for all sorts of hidden fees that they don't bother disclosing upfront. For the amount of money I paid I was extremely disappointed in the quality of instruction that they offered. It was almost exclusively on-line with no personal interaction with any legitimate Event or Wedding Planners. They promise to give you leads to book new brides or clients to work with, but most of the leads they gave me were cold, most with disconnected phone numbers. I honestly didn't learn anything from the training program except for the fact that this company is crooked. Premiere Productions Inc. isn't in business to plan events or weddings. It's a front for their illegitimate training business. I doubt they have much experience planning events and weddings. I even expressed my disappointment and concerns to the Executive Director of the program, Maria Cook, but she was was completely defensive and evasive. She's very dodgy. I asked her to send me some references of actual clients and brides that they have successfully planned events and weddings for in the 12 months, she couldn't do it because there were none. There's no doubt that this company is a total scam with crooked business practices. I am glad to see that others are onto their scam. Anyone that may be considering their paid training program or hiring them to plan their next event or wedding should think twice about it.

All of the above is so true. I only wish I had known before I had enrolled in the training course. Hopefully I will be able to resolve the issue of lack of training, communication, and money without legal assistance.

I don't reccomend this company to plan my dinner. I will not do a tell all on here, becuase again ALL that as written above is TRUE!!

But I will say Brides, Vendors and Student do your homework..READ, READ ,READ these reviews ( they are TRUE) and research before you sign or give money!

DO NOT ENROLL IN PREMIERE-PRODUCTIONS WEDDING/EVENT PLANNING PROGRAM. Tara Ward, Maria Cook and James Brown will not call you back or respond to your e-mails. The promises of shadowing a Wedding/Program Director is a bunch of crap and once you pay your tuition, you are pretty much left on your own. No certificate of completion is ever sent to you. Also, the credit card I charged the tuition on was only used once--- for Premiere-Productions and nothing else. Shortly afterwards, I started receiving tons of on-line charges for computer/equipment/games, etc. I had to report fraud and they are doing an investigation--needless to say the charges were from Southern California and the credit card is closed and now I have to deal with the credit issues. I'm so very disappointed as in the beginning I was totally excited but I should have done more research on this company prior to giving them my money.

Hello I am so sorry this has happened to you. But your not alone. I have been a victim to these horrible people scamming me and so many other people. Maria Cook has partnered up with Michelle Farrell who I think now goes by Angie Shelly. I just want you guys to google her name as well so you know what kind of con artist you are dealing with. PLEASE DONT TRUST THESE PEOPLE WITH CONTRACTS, OR WITH GIVING THEM YOUR MONEY!!! Google their names and you will see various complaints. These are not by ex employees who are leaving these remarks these are brides, grooms, vendors, and innocent people who sign up for an internship program and get scammed. GO on better business website and you will see MARIA COOK IS THE CEO of premier productions. On better business you will see Michelle has owned FleursYours, planning house, and she has worked with good time group and toscana experience and they all have SCAMMED PEOPLE. MICHELLE IS CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION BY THE LOS ANGELES FRAUD DIVISION AND PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND THE CONTACT INFORMATION OF THE DETECTIVE AND DISTRICT ATTORNEY TO PUT THESE TWO BEHIND BARS!!! Currently Michelle is being investigated. Email or call the detective and DA and tell them your story SAVE CONTRACTS EMAILS AND PHONE MESSAGES. The way they are advertising is CONSUMER FRAUD!!!
