My child was picked by Major Model NYC to be a model. When he went to meet them, he had to go to their apartment in Queens. Once inside he saw as many as 10 models living in this small apartment. He met with Jason Kanner who told him he could model. There were boys sleeping everywhere in the apartment. He was told he had to move into the apartment and pay over $1, 500 to sleep in a little room shared with other kids.
Jason Kanner also said he had to test shoot him for another $800.00. Many of the kids were underage and when he talked to them they told him that Jason Kanner would insist on sexual favors to make them successful and send them out to work and bring back money for Jason Kanner. Many of the other kids told him that Jason has had relations with many of the male models and if they don't cooperate they would not get anything and be blackballed from the industry.

..... He uses scare tactics and intimidation to get what he wants. Most of the kids want to achieve their dreams so they give in and are too scared to do anything because Jason Kanner threatens them and makes them believe he can ruin their chances of becoming a model. These man is a predator and have taken a lot money and sexual favors from his models.
After paying $800 for his pictures he was told that he would be introduced to wealthy men who could help him out financially in exchange for her doing what they said. These guys need to be stopped, they are scammers, liars and predators. They get there models some free test shoots and some get into magazines but what they have to pay and do for it is really wrong and very bad. He is very scared of them and he won't say anything because he believes they can hurt his career.
They are nothing but glorified pimps and people need to be warned to stay away from them. Jason Kanner use threats and intimidation to keep the models in line and quiet. What they are doing is illegal and they need to be stopped. Parent of any child with Major Model in New York City should speak to the children immediately and find out if they have been exploited. I also found out Major has been banned by most conventions and model agencies all over the world because of complaints from parents.
