After a few minutes we signed a contract for 3 looks and a photo shoot costing $1150, due immediately. After we paid and signed a few forms rather quickly, they insisted that my daughter have a photo shoot on the spot because they liked her outfit - this despite that my daughter was over tired and turns out was running a fever and sick. We took her in, she cried and i asked them if we could post pone for the later schedule photo shoot a few days later, but the photographer who was not very child friendly, came in with another woman who made silly noises and got my daughter to laugh a bit - this all took about 15 minutes after we were ushered out and left. I was disturbed that they were so pushy with my daughter who was sick. The next day I found out that Nijah is part of a larger organization called New Faces, all which use high pressure sales tactics to obtain money out of innocent parents that believe their child could be successful in modeling.
There was a lawsuit filed and settled in NY in 2006 by then attorney General Eliot Spitzer. Now reading the contract carefuly, i see why they insisted on having may daughter take some pictures so that they could claim $500 of the total amount for the 15 minute photo shoot of my crying and sick daughter. It read that if we decide to cancel - within 3 days by certified mail only - they would say they provided services to us and that they are under no obligation to refund our money. I found complaints for refunds under BBC and they are not accredited. We notified our credit card company and they are going to investigate the company to obtain a refund. I also called franklin mills to complain and they said they would put the complaint on record but would not doing anything else. Please do not get scammed by this organization.
