Casting Hub Fake Casting Company Chicago Illinois
Casting Hub advertises itself on local radio stations as being a casting agency for Disney and children's television shows and movies. We went to the audition this weekend, and they told us that our son did great. They told us that if he was chosen to move on to the next level, they would call back that night. They ended up calling, and setting up a second audition for the next day. There was no second audition. What this company does is get parents to take their children to the "auditions", then they hit them up to become a "Verified" member at anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000, depending on how long you choose to be in their database. They basically tell you that if you become a "Verified" member, they will market your children to casting agencies across the country, setting up auditions. The "Talent Agent" that we spoke with made the hard pitch, told us that she needed an answer that day because her flight was leaving, and there were no payment options. We saw right through it and walked out.
This is a scam of the highest level, playing on the emotions of children. Do not go to their auditions or do business with them. If your child is interested in becoming an actor or performer, do it the old fashioned way instead of trying to get them famous overnight, as this company seems to promise.
