I went in there for an interview, and I made it through both first and the second one. They told me that I was marketable. And they told me that $495 will cover getting the comp card, and there is $39 fee monthly to be a member. So me being very interested in being in the acting/modeling industry, I signed up. I should have known better than to get into this mess.
So they scheduled me with this thing called a Photo Shoot Appointment. Like most people, I thought it was the real photo shoot session, I tried to call and them e-mail them about what to prepare. I got no answers or replies back even on the day of the appointment. So I tracked them down for over two weeks to talk to them about the appointment. After tracking them down (this lady name Tamara answered), I found out that it was just a meeting about what photo shoot packages they have. (I was so glad to track them down and find out that it was NOT the actual photo shoot because I live two hours away from their office.) She said that there are two photo shoot packages. First one is $495 and I will have two different looks, and the second one is $1,000+ for four different looks. And she wanted me to get the $1,000 package because it suits me better. Well I told her that I already paid $495. AND SHE TELLS ME THAT WAS ONLY FOR THE COMP CARD. And she said that the info was in the paper work. They are very shady with the way they do business. I don't remember them telling me that when I signed up. (They explain the paper work and they read out loud for you.)
The day of the second interview, they did take some pictures with a regular cheap digital camera to just have a picture of me on the website. ANYONE CAN TAKE THOSE KIND OF PICTURES EVEN THREE YEAR OLDS. Those are the worst pictures ever taken in my whole life. So I'm trying to run from them and I WANT MY MONEY BACK. Anyone have any experience with this company dealing with my kind of situation? HELP!! I lost almost $550...and $39 additional for this month. Any suggestions?
