Hey Matt, were you on the conference call yesterday? They just called me and told me that I booked the job. I was VERY skeptical of them from the get go for numerous reasons. 1) This is a HUGE job and for what they are all shooting it should pay at least 10 times more. 2) They want me to register (pay) on their site before they can send me the paper work? Really? 3) The client is one of the biggest designers in the world. Why would they be searching on C.L for talent? 4) They're gonna cast off of photos and resume without seeing us in person? 5)They are in NY. Why would they cast in LA? And if they are casting out of LA. They aren't doing it on C.L!

If they ask you for money for anything it's a scam. The most common requests are money for photos or to register. Both are a con.

I've been in the industry for 14 years and have never heard of them, nor can I find them listed in any agency directories or on any industry websites. http://models.com/agencies/Modeling http://www.supermodels.nl/agencies/ http://www.bobpardue.com/model-agency-list http://www.joeedelman.com/modeling-agencies/ That doesn't mean they are a scam - they might be brand new or very small Where are they located? Do you have an address and phone number? It should be listed on their website and on all correspondence as no agency will ever sign you before they have seen you at their office, measured you and did a test shoot Here is a good site that helps you figure out if any agency you find is legit or nothttp://www.modelingadvice.com/Scams.html Remember, a legitimate agency will never sign you without seeing you in person. They should only make money AFTER they book you on a job then take their commission. You should not be asked to pay an agency for classes, photos, website listings or anything else out of pocket. if an agency is making you pay, it means they are not booking their models on enough jobs to support the business - not a good sign Also before you sign with any agency, ask for the names of their top 5 models then google those models' names. If the agency is any good you'll find loads of hits. Then ask who their biggest clients are, then call those companies directly to make sure they book through this agency and are happy with the results. Agencies love to brag about their models and client list, so beware of anyone who says they can't give out that information. That means they don't have any successful models or big clients. If you booked for Gap or Gucci or Vogue, you'd want everyone to know about it - you would not keep it confidential
