Cool Blue Talent is a waste of time agency.  Tried to offer us a "discount" to attend this "exclusive" event where they fly in top agents from all over the country to scout new talent.  They charge people because they are the ones flying people out.  It's called Fusion Model Search and their website is http://www.fusionmodeltalentsearch.com/

Called and tried to offer us a deal by waiving all the fees except the "registration fee", which is still several hundred dollars.  She started rattling off all the big name agencies like Ford, Wilhelmina, Elite as if Cool Blue is associated with them and their agents directly.  They wish!

They also did not care they we already have a contract with one of the above mentioned agencies and also work with legitimate agents out in Los Angeles, have recent castings with substantial roles in major feature films (with several A-Listers), several national commercials already under our belts....etc. And no, we aren't with their agency.  They don't sign people with experience because they don't handle big castings like the ones they want you to think they get.  Their "castings" are for promo work down at the local Sam's Club or at a casino...big whoop, you can get that work (and paid more) from Craigslist postings!

Come on folks, if this was a legitimate agency, they'd be like every other top agency and wouldn't be selling a "seminar" to scam people.  They prey on people's dreams which is sick and disturbing.

Plus, have you noticed Cool Blue Talent's rebuttles on here?  The lady is a psycho, types in all caps and becomes extremely defensive and upset.  She even goes as far as name calling.  Even if she was legit (which she is not), would you really want to work with someone who can't handle critisism? Holds checks, lies, steals and has so many bad remarks?

If you want representation in Las Vegas, check out Bxxxx or Lxxxx (((REDACTED))) or even hit up something small but legit like Cxxxx Cxxx Exxxxxxxx. 

A LEGIT AGENCY WILL NEVER CHARGE YOU FOR ANYTHING!  The only time we have ever paid a thing was when we were starting out and it was for headshots (by a photographer of our choice).  Since then, we have everything supplied for us (unless we wanted to do extracurricular things).  Don't be too eager and don't waste your time with this one!  sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!

I am Crystal Freathertone also L.H

AUTHOR: Crystal Featherstone - (United States of America)

I have to admit this report is correct. I thought what Kim Harris told me was true. I am Leigh. She told me the same stories that others were told and I believed in the company. I saw the deception way down the road too late to help. I saw Kim lying and preying on others dreams and when I did I quit. She begged me for two years to come back and I never did. They lie about payments, bookings, agents, even the models on their pages half of them do not exist. This is one part I wish I never had a part in. I was sold a dream as well. I thought I was helping people and now I know I was a part of a major Las
Vegas scam. I apologize to all. And this post is 100% correct. I am out of this crappy business, and am proud to admit that I was a part of this hell hole that scammed everyone even the employees!

Please accept my apology.
