Okay. So on 2004 11, 12 I signed a ONE YEAR contract with an agency.
That contract ended and I started doing outside work not knowing that they still had been getting work visas for me. I assumed that being that the money I was making through them was not enough to get me a work visa that they had quit getting them. Also, they had not asked me to pay for a new one. Which they had always done before.
On 12/19 05 my friend called me with a casting. I went to this casting for my friend and the next day the casting agent called that agency. The agency never once called me about this casting.
Monday (this week. Monday 2006 Jan 9) The owner’s wife calls me yelling at me. Seems that I still have a contract with them and cannot do this job. She starts yelling to other people and I hang up. An hour later the owner calls me and tells me that I still have a work visa with them, which I did not know. he also tells me how angry he is that I went to this casting that they sent me to and took the job without them. Which I did not. Well, I took the job but I didn’t go to the casting with them.
Now I get a phone call from a friend who is a casting agent saying that the agnecy’s agent is telling everyone that they are about to sue me.
I find this worrisome. I love Taiwan and don’t want to leave. Hell, even if i don’t love Taiwan I love my boyfriend.
I have the paper copy of the contract I signed. It says my contract ends on 04 November 12. But it is only a photo copy. And I would not put it past entertainment industry types to have faked a new one.
I know they have been continually telling the casting agent on the case I am working on that they have me contracted until 06 December.
What can they do? What can I do?
I’m a little freaked out.
