Joe Pedri, an account executive at KLAS TV, outright lied to me.
Say it ain’t so, Joe.
A week ago, when he and I were talking, he told me that he had not received payment from Shafik Hirji for the past 120 days (that’s four months) for the ads that Hirji had taken out with the station.
That’s just not true.
Over the past few days, I’ve been able to obtain bank statements related to Furniture Fashions and and also got copies of checks made out over the past several months. I found evidence of several payments made to KLAS TV (remember, I’m part owner of the fourth Furniture Fashions store in Henderson at Stephanie and Sunset). So the $2,000 in back-charges for unpaid commissions that Joe Pedri seemed to be worried about was just a figment of his imagination.
So, Joe, what do you have to say now? I’m not hearing anything from anyone at KLAS TV.
