Carolina Talent SCAM OF THE CAROLINAS!!! Charlotte, North Carolina
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Mandy Silla Carolina Talent
One of the ladies state that after we audition they will hand us cards that reads basically we are interested or we are not, those who they are interested in will return the next day. Now the powerpoint presentation started with we do not ask for money and any agency that does is legit...ok remember that Now after we audition supposedly walking a imaginary runway on carpet to a boombox playing lady Gaga in front of two judges a woman in a man a woman who never stated her affialiation she only stated she went to modeling school when she was 15....Ive never seen her as a model before in my life and some other guy who looked completely bored..they not once stated their education nor expertise in the field but they are the "model" judges...
now after we all walked they asked who wanted to sing or act this is the kicker the lady who originally spoke of handing out cards said that those who are only interested in modeling can come downstairs to recieve their cards the foolishness is that she had everyone cards even those who havent audition for acting or singing so how can a decision be made for the actors and singers. Lastly if you are selected you have to pay &250 deposit to participate in a international showcase in July that cost $2500 in which you have to pay for also...but wait remember earlier the lady said that their was not any fees and an agency should never charge..this is a indirect charge..If they choose you, you shouldnt have to pay to participate in the showcase because you are chosen!!
Needless to say this was the most unprofessional audition I have ever been on a lot of people become so intrigued and excited by the power presentation and the stories they tell I mean I did but then the $2500 dollars....made me think PARENTS IF YOU CAN HELP IT HIDE THIS SITE FROM YOUR CHILDREN!!! Try other agencies!! Carolina talent is the biggest scam of the Carolinas even in the powerpoint I did not see any of their "models" in belks, dillard, or any other catelog BEWARE!! This is my personal experience not hear say I was selected and I attended oh an no I didnt get selected but after I was told 2500 I wasnt going to pursue even if chosen you can take head or take this with a grain of salt JUST BECAREFUL and DO NOT GIVE CAROLINA TALENT ONCE CENT OF YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!! You would be better off investing in yourself ie website personal photos promotions..
