I recenty took my daughter to our city mall for a modeling competion. We signed up at the mall in a box that were placed all around the mall. We received a phone call asking her to come in for an audition. At this audition, she memorized a line and walked the cat walk. She made it through. We were so excited. Then we had to talk about the next steps of the competion. She had to do the photo competion. We could spend 150, 50 now, to get one pose or pay all up from and get two poses. We could also pay 300 all today and get 3 poses and and photo book, which we did. At this point my husband and thought there may be something wrong with this. However, we still went for it. We came for the photo shoot. The photo shoot seemed very unprofessional. I do realized we were in the mall, but it just didn't seem professional at all. The lighting on our pictures were off and the photographer kept stopping while taking pictures to talk to well just about everybody. Still we smiled ad carried on not wanting to upset the "professionals". The second step was the talent and third the cat walk. Our daughter did all of this. We thought it was a great opportunity for her. We met a lot of people including the photographer/owner daughter who was actually in the competion, which also through a red flag. Still we pushed on. There was so many people that audutioned and we were so nervous to get our results. Finally we received the results to find out that she won! She won a conract with Model Select Agency. Along with ALOT of other people that also won a contract. I asked myself, how is EVERYONE winning a contract? At this point we had to do a lot more research then just googling there name which nothing came of except the facebook page which started in 2013 and the actual website. We searched and searched online. We first came to find Model Productions, then Model shop, Audition America etc. with all of the same owners. This was very strange. Why does this company keep changing there name? Then I looked on ripoffreport.com where we found a lot of complaints regarding these companies with the same owner. Now we are disappointed. We then research the print company that they referred us to and what do you know same owners again. They are just out to get your money with no results. We also researched sucess stories that they claimed. None of these storeies were true. The wife of the owner is also on all the websites as a model, that they claim as a success story also part of the story. Also, lets not forget they put there own daughter in the mix as well. Also on all the websites as being represented, but as i already stated she competed for a contract. How when she is already being represented and her parent owns the company. At this point we are more than convinced that the whole act is just a made up story. We are only out $300, but i want to warn others to not get involved in this as they only want your money for the pictures, photo comp cards and they are not going to follow throuogh with the contract this will also found out on our research on here. From the research online, they will only change there names once again, so this will only be valid until a new company emerges. Please, please please just do your research!!!! We found ALOT!!!
