Bad Business Practices FRAUD

Update by user Apr 30, 2011

It appears many people are trying to contact Janis Roux in regards to the where abouts of their product, payment for sub-contractors for work done & vendors for payment of product shipped.

Hope this helps anyone who is looking for her or anyone considering doing business with her.

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE CONSIDERING DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS WOMAN. WITH HER MUTIPLE BUSINESS NAMES, MULTIPLE PERSONAL NAME CHANGES & DIFFERENT SPELLINGS OF HER NAMES, YOU WILL NEED TO DIG A LITTLE. ALSO, AS OF TODAYS DATE, SHE DOES HAVE A PENDING REQUEST WITH THE COURTS TO CHANGE HER PERSONAL NAME ONCE AGAIN. YOU WILL FIND COURT RECORDS IN CIVIL COURTS & FEDERAL.

She used the name Nilda with me - Sarasota. We were going to order a lot of things from her but were waiting for the sell of our other house. We are out about $2500 waiting for a couch for three and sitting on the floor.She also didn't pay one of the subcontractors.

I am her latest victim. She managed to take $26,000 from me before disappearing.

She was operating under the name Ambiance Design Group and the alias of Anna West.

I know that she has also used the name Interiors Design & Decor as well as Interiors Secrets. Her current address is:4205 Callista LaneSarasota FLCell: 941.302.5862Office: 941.260.9794Fax: 941.371.1486

We purchased outdoor furniture from Janis Kennedy at J Roux designs. We gave her $13,000 for the furniture and never received it.

She told us that she ordered it but that it was being shipped for many months.

I finally found out that she never even ordered it. She closed J Roux and started Design secrets (interesting name)

Buyer beware-- she will take your money and run!!

We are currently trying to get her for a check with no funds. My husband was the contractor please send me an email and I can send my attorney's name.

if you are a sub you can take a lean on the home you worked on. she is currently in Sarasota FL. the state refused to prosecute her.

so we hired an attorney. My email badphantom2005@***.com my name is Marilin.
