Complaint Review: One Source Talent Office Director: Kim Alexander, Talent Specialist:Patrick Sweeney
One Source Talent Office Director: Kim Alexander, Talent Specialist:Patrick Sweeney500 8th Avenue 12th Floor, Suite 1210, Nabhattan NY 10018 Between 35th & 36th Street NY, New York U.S.A.
One Source Talent Office Director: Kim Alexander, Talent Specialist:Patrick Sweeney Someone go do something, this place is a scam with con artists. They are filling up their pockets with money earned by gullible and naive wannabe's. They want $389.00 for picture taking to send out to new face seekers. They act like they screen you but they're full of bull. Please someone file something against them, I bet you'd make a lot of people happy. Fortunately I checked them out after Ripoff New York New York
I found them on a website search and thought I'd check it out and then later changed my mind. However they kept calling me to come in for an interview. I thought that was weird since I haven't even sent them a photo. They are very manipulative and use psychological tactics to win people over and persuade them into thinking they actually have a shot in the modeling and acting industry.
The whole process was about 2 and a half hours. Waiting, filling out a form, having 3 shots of me taken, waiting again, having my measurements taken, waiting watching some comic movie, hearing their marketing pitch (their bull), waiting some more and then a private 3-5 minute interview.
During this 3-5 minute interview I was asked all sorts of questions even was I married? That's weird huh. Told me to stand, turn left, turn right, asked me how serious about acting and modeling I was. In short, they're con artists and they do it well. I almost got fooled myself. It was when I decided to do a little research on them now that I found them to be associated with some lawsuits out of state under a different name.
My time and energy was spent. They asked me to come in for a second interview Monday and if they should decide to work with me then I should consider the cost $389.00 for pictures which would be in the computer to send out to the entertainment business and media.
I asked Patrick Sweeney if he had a college degree, he responded that he had a degree in law, imaging graphics, and I think he said fashion or design. What a load of crap.
Please send them to jail. There were such good innocent people there, such as myself. They should be exposed to the full limit and ruthlessly. If you don't I will send an email to a news media to get them exposed. But I am a working girl so I hope that you will.
Thanks for reading everything. Call me or email me for any questions or anything else.
By the way they used to be called Wilhelmina something something in California and have a law suit by the attorney generals office. I found these things out on the internet when I searched "one source talent"- their present name.
