This is about the "Infinite Talent Usa"
They are absolutelly a fraud !
this is my story :
When i was 19 I was stopped in a mall in Glendale and told that i had the look and the face to make it in modeling by a scout. And because i had modeled when i lived in italy, i thought that they were for real .
I didn't know that i was falling prey to a bunch of wolves. I was given an address and an appointment in orange county. Before i went to my appointment , i called to make sure that i had everything straight .
I talked to a lady named Heather on the phone , and she was very nice , and she told me that i had a wonderful personality etc..etc..fed me a whole bunch of BS !
Because i love the modeling and the entertainment business i got so excited about all the promises they gave me , and they really presented themselves very well !
when i got to the office in Laguna Hills , i saw 4 more candidates waiting in the hall and (not to be mean ) but there were a couple of people that didn't look like they could model at all body wise , and a girl had one arm only (i am not kidding ) so i thought that they were trying to give everyone equal opportunity and at that time i thought that , what they were doing was awfully sweet .
But ...moving on . we all got called in one by one , and in the phone interview they told me that they were very selective and that 1 in 15 would be chosen to work with them , but everyone that was coming out of there was cheering and was happy that they were accepted , and not only they were told that they will be having a photoshoot in a mansion!
So then i thought WOW this is amazing..then i have a chance too .
So they called me in , measured me , asked me a handfull of questions and my credit card .
They told me that i had the look and that all i needed now was a portfolio (which i had already) but they told me i had to have another one done , that will be more appropriate for the looks that they had in mind for me .
So i agreed and they gave me a contract and a whole bunch of other papers .
They said that there were 100's of jobs..especially for me and there was a $30 monthly membership fee as well.
There was supposed to be a photoshoot in a "Mansion" in Hollywood , with a very "famous " photographer the following week. and i was to be there . the fees that they were charging me was supposed to include the rental of the mansionand the hotographer and the stulist fees .
The whole amount was $641.11 (i still have receipts )
but my credit card had only $150 available .
So they charged it and told me that i should bring the cash within 2 days .
So i did (how silly of me )
really... blinded by the possibility of success.
the next day i brought them the rest of the mula $ 491.11
and the photoshoot was 3 days away .
I was so excited and i was extatic, because i was going to meet aspiring models like myself etc..
The photoshoot was Sunday July 5th , 2005
and i was ready to go the so called "Mansion" was a little dump 200 year old home in los angeles on a heel that was ready to fall .
it was :
1356 Miller Place
Los Angeles CA ,90069
When my fiance' drove me there we were both wondering if we were at the wrong place . there were already 8 people there .
The photographer's name was Tom Casey
and the stylist was Deanne Reynolds .
The shoot went on fine and they were very nice to us .
But then my investigative mind kicked in and i started asking everyone what they payed and all the detals .
I found out that we all payed different amounts that varied from $600 to $ 900 .
And that is when the suspicion began .
However....no one ever got the PORTFOLIOS that we payed for .
No one ever called back and it seemed like we didn't exist to the company .
So i got really frustrated and mad and decided to call them...Joana (another predator )picked up the phone and hung up on me when i was explaining my concerns .
and this continued for months . i haven't given up yet , i know that JUSTICE will be done .
They take advantage of people and kids who worked night and day to earn that money they took from them and me .
i have given up on getting back my money .
but i know that HEATHER DUBACK and rachel and joana and all of those girls will get what will come to them .
They are horrible people !
NOW I KNOW BETTER AND I WOULD DO MY BEST TO PREVENT OTHER PEOPLE TO BE SCAMMED LIKE THIS . NO ONE DESERVES IT!
IF THESE PEOPLE SPENT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME THEY SPEND SCAMMING PEOPLE IN A REAL HONEST JOB, THEY WOULD BE REALLY GOOD
THEY BELONG IN JAIL!
IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT THIS COMPANY
PLEASE LET ME KNOW !
SOMETHING NEED TO BE DONE!
THANKS FOR READING

what i have learned :
if you want to model and an agency really wants you , you shouldn't pay a dime ...they should pay and provide for you , because after all you are the one who is going to make them money .
so parents please beware protect your kids!
