I took my 10 year old daughter to an "Audition" and they had her read a commercial line and they wanted me to call in a few days to see if she made it, I called and they said they needed me to bring her in again because it was between her and three other kids so I said fine and I took her in, I also thought it was strange that on the application form they wanted to know the parents occupations, and they gave all the parents a sheet of differents prices for classes, the cheapest was what they call "Hobby" its 20 weeks of classes which is the same as 40 hours. I took my daughter in for the 2nd audition and they put us in an office where my daughter was asked why she thought she was called back in and my daughter being 10 yrs old said "because they thought she was good" and the woman said yes because you were good but also because its the end of the year (another strange remark) the woman then asked me if I decided if I was going to commit to what they called the Hobby or the Career option, and I told her I thought I was there with my daughter for a second audition and she got really upset and started raising her voice and asked me if I wasnt planning on commiting why did I bother going there and waisting her time! (in front of my 10 yr old and my other two younger kids that were in this tiny office also) I got up and told my kids lets go and the woman was still making remarks as she went into another room (probably another parent and child trying to scam them. I didnt fall for the scam!! and I also thought it was strange that it was more of an office set up with only pictures of famous models and actors and no pictures of any kids that actually attend the school. Parents its a SCAM.
