*Author of original report: Money at the front end means not enough modeling work at the back end
On top of the $895.00 for marketing tools they require, the aspiring model is also charged $250.00 for 100 comp cards, a $200.00 one time set up fee with the agency to be listed on their site (www.nymmg.com/) and an a annual yearly fee of $200.00 etc. YOU ARE WARNED: MMG IS A SCAM. Any agency that charges any type of fee's is NOT a reputable modeling agency.
A real agency, especially in New York charges no fee's, they advance you the cash to build your portfolio in hopes that you will earn them money. If an agency signs you, they are investing in you. NO REAL AGENCY CHARGES YOU ANY FEE'S. It is not the responsibly of the model to market themselves. I recommend that you avoid this company at all costs. I also encourage you to search online MMG, and Model411, the SAME COMPANY, further and you will see the numerous complaints about them.
They do not get models work, if anything, they help the model sign with a real reputable agency. The scouts have little connections in the business and are paid commission to each model they sign.
Also, a growing scam online is photo submission agencies which claim to send your photo's to top agencies worldwide, but they do not, in anyway send your photos to agencies they claim. THE FOLLOWING SITES ARE SCAMS, minxmodels and ModelScouts.
The owner of MODELSCOUTS.COM is Karen Graham, a notorious con artist in the business charges $80.00 and delivers no results what so ever. Although they claim to be the only online resource that guarantees that your photos will be seen by legitimate and experienced model scouts and agents for over 100 international modeling agencies does not have any industry qualifications and is another swindle, impostor website conducting business.
Their business addresses is nothing more then a fancy P.O box that tries to represent that of a real agency or "service". I recommend that any person that used this service, contact one of the agencies they have listed on their site, and ask them if they use model scouts.com s service, and they will clearly inform you that they do not know and have never used Modelscouts.com services.
There are a lot of scams out there, be careful. Remember, NO AGENCY CHARGES THE MODEL ANY FEE'S AT ALL, only commission charges of normally 20%
