Yes I believe it! I have been thinking of getting my daughter into modeling, she's 14 years old, she received a letter with an invitation code, I was skeptical so I naturally went on their site and read about it, I thought, hmm well it isn't exactly modeling (as the letter read, for modeling or acting) so I ended up putting her invitation code in and they responded for her to be at a certain place this week.
Her father and I could not for the life of us wonder how she got "selected", we had yet to do prior research on modeling for her and she had not either, BUT SHE HAS INSTAGRAM! Thanks for that tip. Last night we went online and researched even more and realized their was a $480 dollar registration fee, as soon as my husband saw that, he new for CERTAIN it was a scam. He was pi**ed, he said to me, this is how they work they're going to fill your and her head with a bunch of **** and talk you into paying the registration fee, then later tell you she needs a portfolio, which will cost thousands, string both of you along and we could wind up paying upwards to 50,000 to 100,000.
He said scam right here. I WAS SO MAD I WAS FUMING! NOW I MUST TELL MY DAUGHTER SOMETHING.
I'm going to say that it is set for a later date, BC a true modeling agency, if they see something in her, THEY pay for the portfolio, so I am calling around this whole week trying to find a LEGITIMATE modeling agency. Thank you for your post, I hope others read this BC this is soooo wrong to do, especially to the kids.
