This is a talent agency.  Supposedly.  I was able to create a profile for free.  I was able to read jobs.  Each job I called on they would tell me I was a fit but to get the location (which was in my area) I would need to pay the fee and to get business cards (they would produce those for me from my site I created). 

One job in particular sounded perfect and I really wanted to go on it, so I paid the $120.00 fee.  I told them what picture to use on my business cards in 4-6 weeks and a call back for the address of the audition. 

I called company and was bounced around from employee to employee trying to find the address for the audition.  Then was told the audition I was asking about no longer existed.  At that point I was completely all done with the company.  A few months later I realized that I never even received the business cards I paid for as well.

I called the company and they said my membership expired and to get the cards I would have to pay, yet another, $120 membership.  I was then informed my membership was only for 6 months.  They then told me that my membership was expired so I cannot get the business cards.  They said I didn't get the business cards because I didn't call them back to tell them what picture to use.  I reiterated this was a scam, I gave my credit card out for business cards and gave all my information as to how I wanted it to look and what picture!  I got no where with these people.  i was on the phone for over an hour!! 

I want to take them to small claims but cannot find an address for them and do not know if it is even worth it.  I would like to know what other people are doing and how to go about reporting them!!!
