Star Entertainment Lefteris and Laura Choriambus Scam Agency not paying and bullying Entertainers Pafos, Other -

I worked for Star entertainment from the 6th of November until 20 December and received no pay. In the end after over six weeks and no pay I left and returned to England. I am owed over 1500 euros. I was also told the accommodation would have all amenities but the shower did not work and there was no clothвЂ™s washing machine. The first apartment I had was filthy with cockroaches. I was also supposed to get at least 20 euros for petrol for travel to gigs but after 3 weeks they stopped giving this. My return travel was also supposed to be paid on completion of contract but as I had not been paid in over 6 weeks I left and had to pay my own return flight. This apparently has happened to many other staff, it appears they are running a scam at the expense of English artists. The owners of Star Entertainment Lefteris and Laura Choriambus (formerly of agency: Laura & Lefteris Entertainment Ltd)apparently change the name of there agency regularly when things get sticky and carry on operating under a different name. Apart from not getting payed 1500 euros owed I spent over Ј400 in travel and over Ј1000 in lost gigs earnings I could have made in England . ItвЂ™s no fun gigging 5 nights a week for 6 weeks and not getting paid as we all have bills to pay and need money to live. This is a cruel abuse of artists in a foreign country. I would also add there are reports of female artists complaining of no pay and being hit by Lefteris and thrown immediately out of there accommodation. These are two very nasty evil professional conmen/scammers who claim on there website they look after there staff which is very far from the truth. Just ask around any bars in Paphos and Coral beach they are well known for there scam of not paying employees and spending there profits on properties while unpaid employees struggle to get back home to there country.
