Bogus Modeling Agencies

ogus model agencies advertises that they seek children to appear in TV
commercials and magazines.
They are promoted via television, radio,
newspaper, direct mail and the internet,

They say that they have created more stars than any other company and that
their clients appear in national advertising campaigns.

Hoping to make a movie star of your child you respond by calling the number
in the ad.
 For prepaid fee of $45 you are told that you will receive an
objective, selective evaluation, called a "screen test" to determine whether
your child will be one of the select few likely to obtain paid work as an actor
or model..

The talent director, who claims to have many years of professional
experience in talent evaluation, fills out a form printed on letterhead of the
American Child Actor and Modeling Association, showing that your child has
passed the screen test and can begin to earn money right away.

He then pressures you to spend $795 for their "agency introduction
program" which they claim includes the type of photographs your child
needs to interest agents or casting directors and help finding agency

You pony up the fee and guess what happens? Nothing. You realize that you
had been duped cause there was no talent scout.
