CASTINGCENTRAL.INFO / WMORRISCASTING.INFO BEATS BY DRE COMMERICIAL SCAM

ARE SCAMS ARTISTThey claim to be casting agents for Beats By Dre Casting, Nike, Ciroc, and
the NFL. They make several craigislist posting claiming to be looking for extras to appear in the new commercial.

I submitted to a Craigislist posting to be in the Beats By Dre commercial, On April 16th 2013 at 8:30PM, a day later I received a text message from 810-447-0690 and by 810-447-0684 (a Google
voice number) that read You sent us information about the commercial Pink Pill can you talk by conference call with my boss, I am Karen by the way.

I then agreed and said yes, I can do a conference call, thinking that it would be scheduled for
the following day during business hours, because thats what professional and legitimate companies do. Instead, Karen texted me exactly one minute later a conference number with an access code to enter the conference 530-881-1000 / 230805#

When I entered the conference call, there were 6 other extras candidates on the line, with
a man who moderated the call; he identified himself by using the alias Peter Channing. [continued below]....
.....

Peter instructed all the callers, one by one to talk about their resume and experience in acting.
He also asked everyone to state if they were union or non-union.

The very next day, I revived a text message around 3:25PM that stated they want to hire you
to do the Beats By Dre commercial. Congratulations they need your waiver information for SAG.

Now as any normal person who hasnt had much experience doing commercial work, you would
feel excited, over joy and your heart would be pumping, because you just landed a major gig. After all we were told the p would be flew to Los Angles for 3-4 days, we would be put in hotel, we would get credit for the shoot, we would get paid $1,2000 for the commercial and get paid residuals from the commercial. He also told us we would be shooting this commercial on a SAG Stage (theres no such thing as a SAG Stage)

After getting the text message that I have been hired, I responded to the text saying thank
you so much for the opportunity and how excited I was. I also asked them to
send me the SAG WAVIERS AND FORMS TO ME VIA EMAIL.

Karen then texted me back saying  Go to castingcentral.info and on the site hit register, send username and contact info to staceyking@wmorriscasting.info  

I immediately went to the castingcentral.info site, it didnt look professional at all, it
had a news article about the Pink Pill featuring Nicki Minaj, however it mentioned NOTHING about casting for a BEATS BY DRE COMMERICAL.

I clicked on registeron the site and it directed me to a method of payment page, he wanted me to pay a total of $60 and it would be a reoccurring fee of $10 each month after that unless you cancel the subscription. (What is the subscription for?)

At this point I thought it was an error so, I repeated the steps again, and realized that
this is a SCAM.

This in factwas not a legitimate company let alone casting agency. But how did I notice
this?

I personally reached out to the good people at Beats By Dre, informed them on this so called
commercial, in which they knew NOTHING ABOUT. There was no commercial being shot what so ever. A representative issued this statement Thank you for reaching out to us about this matter, we dont know anything about a commercial being shot. Secondly we dont use Craigislist, and if we were looking for extras and had a casting call, we would have something on our official website

I then contacted SAG AFTRA, to ask them about this Beats By Dre commercial being shot in LA, I spoke to various departments within SAG, such as their extra/background department and also their commercial department. They told me if this was a UNION production then in fact they would know about the commercial, and they also told me they dont know anything about a BEATS BY DRE commercial, and that this was a SCAM.

But that wasnt enough, I wanted to fully investigate this matter, I went to the website of this so called casting company (www.castingcentral.ino) I looked at their ABOUT US page looked like a 15 year old wrote it or it was copied and pasted from another website. It never talked about the services they offered and or the thing they accomplished (their track record /resume). I then noticed I couldnt find their CONTACT US Page. But they did have two pictures of skyscraper building one in New York and the other in Los Angeles, so I called both Property Managers of those offices and asked them straight up if they had tenants that use the name Casting Central as mention on their website and also Casting Central both property managers and leasing agents said NO we do NOT have tenants by those names, nor do we have tenants that do castings at all I told them thank you for their time and that I was being scammed.

THIS ALL CONFIRMS THAT THIS WAS A TOTAL SCAM

I went back to the www.castingcentral.info website and clicked on their BENEFITS Page and notice a DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS at the bottom of the page (admin@elitecasting.co) after that I went to www.elitecasting.co and it directed me back to www.castingcentral.info, I so then went to www.wmorriscasting.info and it also directed me back to www.castingcentral.info


I then googled EliteCasting.co, castingcentral.info and wmorriscasting.info  the only thing you will see about these companies is online is that they are SCAM ARTISITS, this person also behind the big model SCAM , He pretended to be a model scout and representative for FORD MODELS (TV DIVISON) http://wwwwww.fordcasting.us Now how could this be, The Real Ford Models say they dont have a TV Division

I found out that

FORDCASTING.US is registered to a

Robert Emery
1050 Autumn Crest Court
STONE MOUNTAIN, GA 30088
Phone: 678.698.3939

NOTES: Its important to know, big million dollar companies DONT USE GODADDY AS HOSTING, usually they would have their own hosting, and they wont use email address such as gmail.com or
yahoo.com.

I think its safe to say everyone should have the right to know who they are doing business with right? Everyone should know who they are living next to right? All SEX OFFENDERS and some people who commit SEX OFFENSE CRIMES are required by LAW to register with the county sheriffs who then reports directly to the State. Well after doing my due diligence, I found out that Robert Emery is also know to Law Enforcement as HAROLD ROBERT EMERY II

Mr. HAROLD ROBERT EMERY II AKA ROBERT HAROLD EMERY, is a Known Sex Offender whose last known address is 1050 AUTUMN CREST COURT, STONE MOUNTAIN, GA 30088, his last arrest date was on 9/28/2010 for failing to register as a SEX OFFENDER.

 Updated: Harold Robert Emery recently registered with The Georgia Bureau of Investigation / Sex Offender Division as 4818A REDAN ROAD, STONE MOUNTAIN, GA  30083, his former address is 1050 AUTUMN CREST COURT, STONE MOUNTAIN, GA 30088 (as mention in the Godaddy domain search)

HAROLD ROBERT EMERY
uses the aliases Peter Channing, Karen, Stacey King, William Dent, Robert Harold Emery, Diana Carrington and Vincent Castillo

HAROLD ROBERT EMERY AKA ROBERT EMERY does business as Back 2 Basic, Ford Casting, Elite Casting, W Morris Casting, and is a BIG SCAM ARTIST UI am assuming because he cant get a legitimate job, because hes a registered sex offender.

The administrator/owner of CastingCentral lives in the same city, the same state, and lives on the same street (Autumn Crest Drive) as the (so called owner) of FORDCASTING, they just have different addresses, what is coincidence.

(Wow the information listed for an elite casting agency doesnt look professional for a top leading Casting Agency, not to mention they have a yahoo email address for the company contact??)

I am in fact not licensed Private Investigator or Rocket Scientist, but I believe the W Morris is a way to name drop but not officially name drop on the well-known and respected company called the William Morris Agency. DONT BE FOOLED PEOPLE.

Again its important to know, big million dollar companies DONT USE GODADDY AS HOSTING, usually

http://talentregistry.cloudaccess.net/ NEW SCAM

AUTHOR: ddrice1990 - ()

They are up to it again! The very same company posted an ad on craigslist about a WALMART commecial! They asked for me to call a phone number to do a confrence call with several others on the line then told me they would send a follow up email. I got the email and they told me that I needed to register to have a UNION Waiver. I clicked on the link and it stated that I needed to pay $99.00 up front and $23.00 recurring every 30 days. Blasphemy!! I did some research and found the ripoffreport! I am so grateful that I did not pay it just seemed a little odd to me. Who knows how many other people they have taken advantage of! Thank you so much for your information! They need to be stopped right away!
