On June 24th i went to a interview at One Source Talent, modeling agency and up front I pay with my CC $534.95, trusting them, they would send me to castings and auditions right away like they said. I provide my own digital photos for my portfolio, so they didn'nt do anything for me, just take my money and told me they will contact me. I had a bad feeling so I did my research on the Net: statements of people like me who have been rip off.
Ahuge SCAM place where you get nothing out of your money.

I called them everyday for a follow up, nothing or they didn't return my calls.
On June 29th, I made a stop on my CC Cgnie and faxed them everything ti the Billing and Dispute Dept.One Source Talent refuse to give me my money back. I had no services from them whatsoever.

I am unemployed,I trusted them to make some money but on the contrary, they rip me off. I had to cancel my CC cause I cannot pay that sum. I have no money and I am in deep troubles.

Please help me and tell me what I can do to get my money back.

Thank you.

#2 Consumer Comment


AUTHOR: Markvi - (U.S.A.)

Here's my story: I see these guys post on  Craigslist  and on google ads. All you had to do was answer a couple questions and submit a photo (optional), and someone would call you within the next couple of days. The "optional" to submit a photo should have raised a red flag right there, but I just submitted my stuff to see what would happen and went on my merry way. A couple days later, I got a call from One Source Talent, saying they wanted to meet me. I decided, "why not?" I can always say no.  When I got there,  the  office  was run by hot 20 something year old girls-clearly people who did NOT have experience in the industry. It was like "Boiler Room" but with hot women! They rounded all 50+ people into one room and showed off pictures of their " Success  stories " (These people were all the ideal model type who would have found success WITHOUT One Source!). They also said "You don't need classes! Look at Jessica Simpson! Hahaha!" Then one by one they would call people to be interviewed as if only a few people got selected. They called me in, asked a few questions, and told me to come the next day. Having nothing to do and trying to expose this company as a scam, I went. The next day, I went to the LA office. I came 15 minutes early. Despite that, the person I was supposed to meet with didn't come 30 minutes after my call time (I waited 45 minutes!). While I was waiting, a client was waiting for his month follow up interview. I asked him if they booked him for any major  work  during his first month. He said he hadn't gotten anything and that it was mainly his fault because he was not submitting himself, when OneSource is supposed to submit you. I asked what kind of work did he see on his Onesource site. He mentioned a lot of reality shows and  extra  work  that anyone can find for free on Craigslist. Finally, this 20 something year old girl named Lynette Silvio asked me into an office, and then asked me a few questions before taking my photo portfolio. Lynette took my portfolio, walked out, and came back 10 or so minutes later and said "We think you're marketable, and we want to work with you. She then whips out this sheet of  paper  that she wants me to sign. It stated $495 with a monthly recurring fee of $39.95. She also suggested that I used their photographer who range around $400-800, depending on how many looks I got. When I asked which specific agencies and casting directors does OneSource work with, Lynette Silvio was stumped and said, "we work with many, many, many agencies and casting directors." I also asked if there were any success stories of average looking people like myself because all of the success stories on the site and their "Wall of Fame" were people who had the ideal model look or was a really cute kid. She failed to answer the question and provide examples of average looking people finding success through OneSource. I left with an unsigned contract. My ONLY regret was not hitting on the hot chicks working there
