* : Ridiculous Deflamation of Character
*Consumer Comment: Ami Shaffir & ExploreTalent.com is a scam
*Consumer Comment: What New Owners? In any case, still a scam...
*Consumer Comment: New Owners Attempting to Clean this up?
Owners are apparently Ami Shafrir and Blake Yoon. Blake Yoon is an ex-criminal that was in jail for Drugs and Murder. I have found several sources of this- one is listed below. Ami Shafrir has had several companies that are scams and has managed to blame it on former business partners. He even scammed Geraldo into believing him and doing a story about it. He has been involved with Credit Card fraud and a lot of other fraud. He has built 1000s of sites to Sell his false story- see below.
So now we know Explore Talent is run by two criminals. I have researched some of their castings and they are fake- this is widely reported on the internet. They just sent me an email claiming that if I sign up with them they will get me paying work- guarantied! They don't even know what I look like. They also have been doing photography- which is illegal. It is called a photo-mill scam. They have a seven-day trail period that requires a credit card. Then they do not credit it back. This sounds like credit card fraud again- good to see Blake Yoon and Ami Shafrir are still at it. There BBB score is horrendous.
Now I get to the enormity of this scam. They claim to have over half a million members. They charge a monthly fee of $29.95. $30 times 500K = $15,000,000 a month in scamming profits. Yes that is 15 MILLION A MONTH.
GERALDO-WHERE ARE YOU NOW???
Some one do something to stop this!
