If you have lost money to Scott Cole and Oliver McClellan you can use the online reporting form at the Insolvency Service here 

Hello,

Please contact me if you can provide any information regarding Greenleaf Casting Agency, Greenleaf Entertainment, Camp Showbiz.  They appear to be trading under three different names around the Leeds area, Scott Cole seems to be the sole director/staff.  I am concerned they may have gone bust as their Greenleaf Casting website is now down and they have not responded to any of my numerous emails, phone calls and a hand delivered letter. (Edit: I now know that Scott uses different names and may be known as Scott Sacks.  His real name is thought to be Scott Cole Sacks.)

I tweeted their Greenleaf Entertainment profile on Saturday 5th October to ask if Greenleaf Casting are still trading and their profile was then deleted from Twitter.

Greenleaf Casting owe me £500 for a full day actor/performer photography headshots event booked in Beeston, Leeds for Friday 27th September 2013.  I arrived at the venue (Hillside Business Centre) at 9.30am to find that the shoot was on from 2pm to 8pm. but the director, Scott Cole, had not responded to my messages to tell me the start time so I didn’t know when to go.

I went home, planning to return before 2pm and then was told by the venue (at 1pm) that Scott had responded to their messages to say he had cancelled the event the day before.  Neither myself or the venue had been told about the cancellation.

The Greenleaf Casting invoice was supposed to have been paid prior to the event but on Tuesday 24th Sept, when I called Scott Cole to confirm, he said the shoot was going ahead but he had not received the invoice, which was why he had not paid it.

I emailed the invoice again and attended the shoot as planned as he had told me he had 80 clients booked and I didn’t want to let them down just because Scott had not got the previous invoice.  I turned down other work to honour my contract with Scott Cole and am now in a situation where I need to pursue Greenleaf for the unpaid debt.  I gave Scott Cole the option of re-booking the event without penalty but he did not respond to my messages.

I am in possession of a written booking confirmation, from Scott Cole on behalf of Greenleaf Casting Agency, for 27th September and a request for the £500 invoice to be issued.

**If you have been affected please let me know and also contact Citizen’s Advice Consumer Helpline on 0845 404 0506.  The reference number for this case is 11581960.  CA are informing Trading Standards.**

Please note:

1.  Greenleaf Casting/Entertainment is not related to a London company of a similar name.

2.  Their registered office at Convention House, LS9 is actually the premises of their accountant, WGN.  At the time of writing, Scott Cole’s real address is unknown.

3 Prior to launching Greenleaf, Scott was director of Drama Drive Ltd which was dissolved in Nov 2013.

4 Update 16th Jan 2014 – Scott Cole’s new business venture is Eureka Event Management Ltd  http://www.thinkeurekaevents.com/

5 Update 2nd May 2014 – Scott may still be trading as Eureka Events but the website is now down.  Listings for that company appear on wedding industry directories.

6 Update 29th Aug 2014 – Eureka events has been dissolved.  It is now thought that Scott’s real name is Scott Cole Sacks, born in 1986, registered director number 916060802.  Scott is of small build, slim with short dark brown hair.

7 Update 26th August 2015 Scott’s new venture appears to be http://www.demand-ingtalent.co.uk/

demand-ing group, Scott Cole8 Update 1st November 2016 – In the last two weeks I have been contacted by several people who are owed money by Scott Cole and his partner Oliver McClellan.  They have been running a print and events company called Demand-Ing which has recently gone into administration. (Notice the pattern here?!!)

Print Week magazine have covered a round up of the most recent events here.

10 Scott & Oliver’s new business venture is called The Demand-ing Group Ltd and seems to have relocated to Leeds, Yorkshire.  Click the image to the right to read Scott’s announcement. (As of 10.11.16 Demand-Ing is still operational at Companies House https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10208358 )

11 Another new company has been registered on 1st Nov 2016. Scott and his partner Oliver are directors. The Northern Monkey Group Limited is based at Sheaf Street in Leeds.  https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10457067

12 One of Scott & Ollie’s previous victims has begun a campaign to clear his name.  He was their landlord and claims he was the subject of false allegations in the media re him being homophobic & bullying his tenants.  He claims this was an attempt to avoid settling the back payments of rent that were owed to him by Scott & Ollie. http://www.life-magazines.co.uk/magazines/psl/psl.php#page/6

    the little f**k did the same thing to us. It turns out he has done this more than once. He waits for people to put him into liquidation.

    He has also gone by the name of scott sacks, he is currently trading as ‘camp showbiz’ from

    Convention House
    St. Marys Street
    Leeds
    West Yorkshire
    LS9 7DP

    his personal twitter account

    https://twitter.com/specialscotty

    his facebook

    https://www.facebook.com/scottcoleGB

    a prev address

    30 Aldersgate, Wesley Road, Leeds, LS12 1UL

    (his current one is somewhere in wakefield)

    if you require assistance in getting this taken through court, please leave your contact details here. As the debt is over £500 you may be able to secure a warrant of execution (as in baliffs in his flat, taking his stuff)

    i really hope you get him

    • Paula Brown (Ollievision) October 30, 2013 at 3:07 pm #

      Thank you very much for the information! I think the St Mary’s House address is his accountant which he has used as his registered business address.
      The other thing I discovered is that he claims to be a former winner of “The Diana Award” so I checked with them and they don’t have him on file as a winner.
      My contact details are above if you want to get in touch, maybe there’s some way we can help each other?

    Hi, Scott did similar to a good friend and colleague of mine. He was her manager for a few months and she released her first single through him. He then disappeared off the face of the earth and my friend is yet to see any money from the single sales which was released in April! He also owes money to taxi companies across Leeds. Stay away from this man he is the most unprofessional person I have ever came across and has no money whatsoever to pay any of his debts!

    • Paula Brown (Ollievision) December 19, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

      Sorry to hear about yet another victim of Scott’s. Has your friend contacted the police? If she gets in touch with me I can try to put her in touch with the band who are suing him via Musicians Union.

  3. Jonathan Atherley March 5, 2014 at 7:05 pm #

    Scott also offered fake jobs which i became suspicious during a second interview. Basically he was trying to steal idea’s from people who had worked in the industry without there being any jobs. Strangely enough I have just seen this advertised which looks remarkable similar to the advert i applied to. I am going to look into it. Link below

    I work for a taxi firm in leeds of which he owe’s us a considerable amount of money we used to pick him up from St Mary’s house Back St Marys Road Chapletown if that is any help

    Regards

    • Paula Brown (Ollievision) March 24, 2014 at 1:46 pm #

      That’s interesting Sharon! Do you require his home address? Someone else gave it to me recently.

  5. Anon May 2, 2014 at 11:11 am #

    Scott Cole is now trading under the name drama drive. His previous company – Greenleaf Entertainments owed money to a huge number of companies, so he changed name to Camp showbiz.
    He is very sneaky and lies constantly. He employed staff that he couldnt afford and had no intention of paying. He lives / lived somewhere in Chapel Allerton.
    The link to the job ad above is an old one.. from 2013.

    • Paula Brown (Ollievision) May 2, 2014 at 12:48 pm #

      Thanks for your information Anon. I have searched for Drama Drive but have been unable to find it. Do you have a link?
      The last confirmed trading name for Scott was Eureka Events Management which is still listed on various directories. However the site now seems to be down which may indicate he’s risen again using a new name!

  6. Demomaster November 12, 2014 at 4:56 pm #

    We too can join the list of people he owes money too. Had 1000 CDs in Card Wallets back in April 2013. Owing £695. Said money have been paid by their parent company in USA but never received a penny.

    OMG..I HAVE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SCOTT COLE. READ ON.

    Firstly, hello everyone, oh dear, well I met this rejected nasty quick tempered young man aged 25 in 2012, so 100% I do agree his d.o.b. is 1986 and he was housed to a council – MOVE ON – flat in Armley with to my knowledge help from Stonewall Housing but I didn’t get to the bottom of why he was moved from London to Leeds, I’m assuming either fleeing domestic violence or homophobic abuse ( perhaps his Jewish family background played a huge part in it ). Initially he met me in Queens Court Bar and showed much interest in becoming my business partner, he then met me on separate occasions in Bar Fibre and The Penny. Although fraudulent, I do believe he is degree qualified in business studies, he spoke articulately and of high calibre.

    The business venture of course did not start and he obviously has his doubts about me ( or his own commitment ) either way to go ahead. He seemed a very troubled young man, bullying people constantly whom he worked with and customers, also he had an intimate short term affair with a man 29-at the time from Harrogate, a regular at Queens Court Bar, the man in question received abusive messages over facebook from him and at the same time both my facebook account was blocked alongside the EX-BF. Now, at this time Scott Cole worked as a supervisor at STEAM COMPLEX SAUNA, 8 Eyres Avenue, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS12 3BA IN ARMLEY. The place is CCTV’d all round.

    Additionally I am also able to tell you full fact that Scott Cole is a member of VIRGIN ACTIVE – Kirkstall Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS4 2DJ.

    Scott Cole is also a member of NUFFIELD PRIVATE HEALTHCARE HOSPITAL IN LEEDS.

    Scott registered a business in a name we agreed upon at the time I think it ended up being indulgence spas – Leeds if my memory serves me well.

    I had some close dealing with Scott Cole and would like to assist police with their enquiries so anyone is welcome to contact me via TWITTER a direct message, I will respond as best I can and shed some light into this horrific situation.

    I am so sorry for the loss of monies anyone has endured, I knew he money motivated but didn’t realize he would get this dumb to get it, he’s lost direction and successfully managed to fall out with everyone willing to help.

    The building we were going to secure was on Briggate opposite the hour glass pub, at the time the building had Ackroyd-To-LET signage up.

    He sent me his CV at the time but I’m afraid I deleted from my hard drive and since then swapped computers, his CV was atrocious, the lies were transparent, and it certainly did not reflect his personality and confidence to know the alcohol / retail trade. The only part Scott said in all honesty was his degree course undertaken at – WESTMINSTER KINGSWAY COLLEGE, 211, Grays Inn Road, London, WC1X 8RA.

    I beleive Scott Cole has since had strong links with GAYLEEDS.COM and Thomas Wales – he lives or did in Wakefield.

    I think Scott was friends with a guy called Phill Doleman at the time, and Scott has an old TWITTER account with a profile photo – last tweets were 2012.

    Scott knew me prior to changing my name by deed poll to my current name and prior to me moving from Leeds to London ( partly to get the fuck away from drivilling nobodys – people ”LIKE” Scott Cole. Even 200 miles down the road, Scott’s behaviour still pisses me off, I remember his posts on Facebook were always about his kittens and moaning about people bitching about him, he never replied to comments and rarely liked stuff posted on his timeline, he walked around a silly arrogant prick in a rucksack and got asked for I.D. in all the bars.

    Hope we catch dodgy del-boy…

  8. Rubikin Erne February 4, 2015 at 11:39 pm #

    https://www.facebook.com/scottcoleGB?fref=ts

    Scott Cole moved from Leeds to Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire and posted on a PUBLIC facebook profile about it January 10th 2015….

    Link above.

    Clearly the reason he keeps moving is due to his criminal activities.

    Just a ticking time bomb until he commits his next offence and bogus web business.

    Scott Cole tried claiming money form people by setting up Marie Curies cancer charity page – just google it. He has also been involved in a lottery email scam.

    He’s on the run run running… run faster Mr Cole, internet reports are stacking up high.

    • a less annoyed perso July 7, 2015 at 9:35 am #

      He was formerly working for cash 4 kids for radio Aire. I believe someone tipped of his employers to his nefarious activities, as well as submitting a chapter and verse account of all businesses he has set up and various reports of fraud to the crown prosecution service.

      He is no longer working for radio aire, and seems to have dropped off the radar, presumably keeping a low profile.

      I hope you read this you fuck. I wouldnt have gone to all this trouble if you were not such a cunt. lol.

      • Paula Brown (Ollievision) July 8, 2015 at 11:04 am #

        Thanks for the info Mr Annoyed! Scott Cole seems to have made a lot of enemies for himself!
        Feel free to return and update me with his current business details or any new contact details.

      • Tracy October 17, 2016 at 4:17 pm #

        He has just sponsored an even in Leeds for Cash For Kids. They won’t get they’re money
        ..sadly. he owes me loads!!

  9. Jonathan April 8, 2015 at 1:26 am #

    Interesting post. Thanks!

    • Paul October 7, 2016 at 6:00 pm #

      They are now operating from a Regus Office building in Rickmansworth. We’re still waiting for our invoices to be paid.

  10. Tracy October 17, 2016 at 4:10 pm #

    Paul…they’ve just been thrown out of Regus..owing a Fortune to everyone. They’re heading back up to Leeds..BEWARE!!

  11. updating you November 2, 2016 at 8:44 am #

    Hi there
    I wanted to update you on this after coming across your post.
    They have now headed back up to Yorkshire, leaving 5 employees in Rickmansworth owed between £2-3k each. They owe Regus 1000s, along with other contractors including recruitment and furnishings.
    They have dissolved demand-Ing ltd but appear to continue to trade with demand-ing group ltd. with plans to hire 50 people in Yorkshire area.
    the police, company house, their liquidators and prospective office building and the high court has been been made aware of their problems so hopefully they will be bought down in a very hard way very soon.

  12. Another one November 8, 2016 at 4:03 pm #

    My colleague is another victim and she’s gutted. I’m sorry to say people like this do get away with it. The authorities can track him down but what stops him trying this shit again? I feel awareness would be better since he’s bouncing from industry to industry. Name and shame on Youtube, social sites and stuff like that. It goes viral doesn’t it?

    • Paula @ Ollievision November 9, 2016 at 11:55 pm #

      I think the most effective approach seems to be blogs like this one. In the 3 years since I wrote this so many people have contacted me to report Scott Cole! I never expected him to carry on like this.
      Anyone affected who has a blog needs to blog about it.

  13. Yorkshire Yeti November 10, 2016 at 4:39 pm #

    Thanks for the update, they do get about.

    It looks like they are trading from an office in the Duke Studios Leeds as The Northern Monkey Group Ltd with Scott as the Chief Marketing Officer focusing on printing, advertising and video production.

    I’ll keep a look out in the local press for them advertising for 50 members of staff.

  14. Anon November 10, 2016 at 6:14 pm #

    My partner and I have been knocked by these scum.
    We’re owed a substantial amount of money, and so are many others, including their previous landlords.
    Not only that, but they have left the house in a right state.
    They even had the cheek to go to the papers about the old landlord dumping their rubbish on my drive.

    Out and out scum. I hope one day they experience the pain and misery that they cause everyone in their wake.
    We are going to court, but I highly doubt they will make an appearance.

    • Paula @ Ollievision November 13, 2016 at 12:55 am #

      Thanks for your comments. I think the problem is that they don’t appear to have any assets. The only way forward is to campaign to have them both barred as company directors.

  15. Anon November 11, 2016 at 11:58 am #

    I should also add that their cover story for us, was that they had won the contract with John Lewis, and were tendering for Coca Cola. The John Lewis contract meant they were needing to employ 260 something staff.
    Do not believe a word that comes out of their mouths.

    If anyone has any proof of wrong doings and money owed, I am planning on appearing in court myself. I would love to be able to present the court with some proof of previous and ongoing convictions.
    I am happy to provide my details in a secure way.
    If you have something that may help, or know somebody who may. Please come forwards.

    Thanks

    • Yorkshire Yeti November 14, 2016 at 11:27 am #

      If you pop up a throw away email address on here I’m happy to share any info I have.

      I’m sure other will also be happy to.

    • Paula @ Ollievision November 14, 2016 at 2:26 pm #

      Hi Anon,
      Another one of the victims has contacted me to offer you some help. I’m going to email you their phone number. Please check your spam folder.

    • Anon November 15, 2016 at 7:25 pm #

      Hi Yorkshire,

      Not sure of the best way to give you my details, but the administrator has them.
      Sure they can can put us both in contact, thanks so much for the contact.

    Some other companies:

    – TBSC LIMITED (08066361) – Disolved
    – INDULGENCE SPAS LIMITED (07903957) Disolved

  17. Anon November 18, 2016 at 7:51 pm #

    Ok,

    I’ve had great responses from everyone, which is hugely appreciated.
    It appears that the court case of ours, the 29th, is to primarily issue a CCJ and get a possession order. It is dependant on the judge whether or not I’ll get a chance to put the bigger case across.

    However, I have managed to get in touch with the previous landlords solicitors. Under their advice and some others, I have reported Scott to the action fraud team, and will take it to the police as well.
    I’m hoping the previous landlord will do the same.

    Action fraud told me to tell you all to do the same thing, the more people that report these two b***ards, the more likely we are to get them convicted. Be under no illusion, what they do is a crime.

    I believe you need to visit actionfraud.police.uk or phone 03301232040
    We can get these f***ers locked up.

    P.s, the address that is rumoured around doesn’t seem to be legit. It comes up as the school apparently, according to action fraud. There is no 51.

    Olly and Scott must visit this blog often to see the latest, I hope they have a miserable 2017 and karma comes calling.

  20. Anon January 4, 2017 at 7:53 pm #

    Hi all. Another victim here! Owed a substantial sum from Demand-ing Group Ltd, which is still showing as ‘active’ on Companies House.

    Intend to issue proceedings against them (although fully aware that this is likely to be a fruitless process given the money they owe to many before me!!). Just feel I need to do something, especially after reading everyone else’s horror stories on this blog.

    I know they have moved back up North – does anyone have any idea of a current address in order for me to serve papers?

    Many thanks!

    • Paula @ Ollievision January 5, 2017 at 2:08 am #

      I will forward your email address to another victim who has their address. Unfortunately, as they were running it as a limited company I suspect there is little you can do. Talk to companies house and see if they can take action re barring them as company directors. Also, spread the word about what they have done.

  21. Paul January 20, 2017 at 11:39 am #

    I’ve been in touch with Duke Studios in Leeds where they had a virtual office late last year.

    I was told Duke Studios terminated their agreement with Scott and Ollie after 1 month and have had a lot of people getting in touch trying to track them down via Duke Studios.

    • Paula @ Ollievision January 22, 2017 at 12:15 am #

      Duke Studios were never involved. Scott & Ollie intended to use them as a “virtual office” to hide their real address in Leeds. The agreement was terminated within a month by Duke Studios but Scott continued to pass them off as his business address without their permission.

  22. Paula @ Ollievision January 31, 2017 at 9:17 am #

    Post updated 31st Jan 2017 (for those who subscribe to comments)

    One of Scott & Ollie’s previous victims has begun a campaign to clear his name. He was their landlord and claims he was the subject of false allegations in the media re him being homophobic & bullying his tenants. He claims this was an attempt to avoid settling the back payments of rent that were owed to him by Scott & Ollie. http://www.life-magazines.co.uk/magazines/psl/psl.php#page/6

    They have moved nearer me, I understand they are renting a property in The Mi​llennium Village, Allerton Bywater just north of Castleford.

    If you are in the area have a drink in The Boat and maybe you might bump into two familiar faces.
