Let me introduce myself and provide a short background. My name is Chris Fabiano and I am a former Videographer for Henna Studios and The Art of Wedding Photography. I did not shoot weddings under the Soulmates and Adam and Eve Couples.
I was not paid for shooting any events totaling an incomprehensible amount of money. Since shooting for Punkish, Bobby, Bob, Robert, Ben, Kumar, Guiliani, Ghuliani, or whatever he calls himself, I've been contacted by many, many, brides trying to retrive video footage or wedding pictures.
I have made it my DUTY to work my hardest to retrive ALL of the photographs and footage that he may have.
Here's what I know....Punkish (Bobby) has let down over 30 couples that I am aware of. I was told by him that he has all of the materials in a storage location called "Storage-Mart" (I've also been there with him multiple times before I was aware that he was running scams.
I've contacted Storage Mart located at 6700 River Road in West New York NJ and spoke with the magager.
I've made him aware of the situation but because Punkish or whatever he calls himself has sooooo many different alias' they can't figure out what unit is his.
I've made a deal with the Regional Manager for storage mart to be there personally at any auctions that are held, where there's a possibility of the material being sold.
Just for the record, I have seen "Punkish's" name spelled in so many different ways and just completely different names totally. Well, here's a list of them.
Punkaj, (also seen as Punkish), Robert, Bobby, Bob, Ben, and for last names I know of Kumar, Guilianni, Ghuliani, and Giuliani.
And I also know of 4 different company names that he operatied under. (The) Art of Wedding Photography, Henna (Studios) Photography, Adam and Eve, and Soulmates Bridal. From the information I received, it turns out this jerk has been doing this sort of scam since 2003. And another FYI is that he used to work for a company called EventphotographersUSA.com.
I have a picture of him and I will be posting it on this blog right away.
I have read that he's been reported to the F.B.I, Attorney General (in NY, I don't know of anywhere else), the Better Business Beaureu, as well as Immigration.
I currently have some videos that I would like to get to the clients and provide some sort of closure.
I created this blog so that I could keep everyone who is interested updated on what I know.
Again, my name is Chris Fabiano, I live in Hudson County NJ, my e mail address is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, I'm easily found on Yahoo and Google searches.
I know it seems a unusual for someone to go through all this additional work, especially someone who's been screwed out of so much money, but I've been contacted by so many couples, including some that I had nothing to do with their wedding and I was truly hurt. I've been working as a videographer since I was a teenager and I truly enjoy making couples happy and being an integral part of their day. So I feel somewhat obligated to help those screwed over by this jerk. I should have seen through him and I should have never let him out of my sight once I heard about him.
Please feel free to contact me via e mail or my cell phone, the number is 201-478-3893.
I will be keeping everyone posted with this blog.
My heart goes out to you ALL.
All the best
