Jewish Camp For Children Says|World Media Group Tried To Defraud It

LOS ANGELES (CN) - World Media Group and its boss Eric Carsigan tried to defraud a nonprofit Jewish camp for children, Camp Ramah in California claims in Superior Court. Ramah saysthe defendants cold-called it and claimed to be making an educational film about specialty camps, then sent it a "Participation Agreement," which Ramah signed. Ramah says it became suspicious after Carsigan gave shifty and apparently false answers about his company. It says Carsigan has demanded $22,900 under threat of litigation.

Ramah claims that under questioning, Ramah admitted his alleged frauds. It claims he operates his company out of a mail drop; pushes his Participation Agreement through misrepresentations; that defendants' so-called "World Progress Report" is not a report, but de facto advertising for anyone who pays for it; that defendants falsely claimed affiliations with bona fide groups such as Children's Hospital of Los Angeles; and that despite his previous representations to the contrary, "Carsigan admitted that World Media had not worked with any nonprofits before, but claimed that he had worked for 'for-profit summer programs' affiliated with Yale University."

Camp Ramah is represented by Bird, Marella, Boxer.
