206 model management Asks for up-front money $780, which may be called "registration," "sitting" "consultation," or "administrative" fees. Legitimate agents work on a commission. They don't get any money until you get paid for doing the work they have obtained for you.
206 model management Pressures you to cash deposit & sign a contract immediately. 206 model management insists that you take acting lessons at a particular school or from a particular teacher Nick Tarnowski; or may try to get you to buy expensive photographs, [ $500+] audition tapes, comp cards [$150] or other services or materials sold by 206 model management suggests. An agent's time should be spent finding work for his or her client, not selling products and services.
To break into the business, you need professional photos and should be able to choose your own photographer. [continued below]....
You have to pay a fee [ 206 model charges 500 $$] to them to serve as your agent before they'll do any work on your behalf.
206 Model Management claim they aren’t the same as modeling and acting schools . These schools claim to provide instruction — for a fee — in poise, posture, diction, skin care, make-up application, the proper walk, and more. But after you take their classes, you may be on your own, despite their promises that attending modeling school will ensure you make it as a model. 206 models does this same step.
206 model management tells you the opportunity could disappear if you don’t act now.
You need time to check out a company before you give them any money or personal information. If an offer is good today, it should be good tomorrow.
206 model management may say your deposit is totally refundable. It's more likely that your deposit would be refundable only if you meet very strict refund conditions. Or, you might be told that 206 model management will evaluate your chances at success in the field, accept only a few people into the program, and give refunds to anyone not selected. What they don't tell you is that the program takes virtually everyone. [ remember do not pay and do not sign ]
Patrick Girodat Used names which sound similar to well-known agencies. Fraudulent companies will sometimes do this to give the incorrect impression that they are connected to a legitimate entity. [ They gave Heffner's name & BMG also !!]206 model management Placed phony ads that say something like, "new faces wanted" for commercials, movies or modeling or claim that "no experience is necessary." People are usually dropped once they say they don't have any money.
