Today I get a text with the following
Kids ClothingLine- casting for models 4-16 call 323-785-2000. Pay $500 per day PLUS travel to LA.
I called....just to see what the joke was. Of course the lady pulls up my daughters profile and ohh's ahhh and gave me all these compliments about how they will get booked all the time. So I asked her about this casting and how would we go to LA from the Northeast for an audition. She tells me that they will pay for our travel expensses and accomadations Plus my daughter will make $500 a day. ALL I NEED TO DO IS SIGN UP....and then she offers the BS of 12 month membership and how we would get business cards and thousands of amazing opportunities our agent woudln't be able to get for us.
After I declined she still tried to offer me the lower montly membership...NO thank you....I said if I am interested I will get back to you. After doing 2 seconds of research I am reading all these stories about poor people being suckered out of all their money from this "Explore talent" company. Maybe if you are a local in LA or NYC and don't have an agent or have been rejected by agencies it may work to get you a hair show for $100. But please....they are not offering any SAG jobs (which my daughter can only work SAG) and having had my girls work for DKNY, Gap, The Children's Place and many others...I can tell you there are extremely rare times that they will pay your transportation (escpecially across the country) for a random clothing line. If it sounds to good to be true...IT ALWAYS IS.... I am glad i wasn't fooled by them...so please don't let yourself be fooled either. I am going to delete my daughters profile from their site....it just seems like more harrasment than anything real.
