I contacted Micah Blehm via a craigslist add looking for amateur male models for his Agency. After meeting in the office and going over paperwork i was convinced this was the real deal, as i have always been told to attempt modeling. I was initially ok with a monthly (submission/promotion) fee of i believe 25-35 dollars but became concerned when a friend in the acting industry had told me that was very unusual.
After several months of waiting to hear from Mr Blehm on when my photoshoot would take place, we finally settled on a date of feb 28th. Originally in the initial meeting he wanted to shoot around the first of the year as my hair was still short and he wanted it grown out longer. I accepted this, but, his lack of communication (viturally NONE) and the montly charges, which became random amounts not agreed upon, being debtited from my bank account started to alarm me. [continued below]....
The photoshoot happens. There is actually 3 males including myself shooting that day. After the shoot, which was very brief, Micah handed me 20 dollars which was extra from all the debits from my account as i was 20 dollars over my photoshoot fee of 375. I then asked when we could recieve the pictures and the responded with "next tuesday, we will spend the weekend photoshopping them and have them sent out via ups". I was initially estatic hearing this news.
Flashfoward to the following tuesday and i never received them. Since then, its now May 7th, and i have attempted to contact him multiple times. Few times he told me some excuse, "weve been working all night on them, I've been out of town", ect. CURRENTLY he has blocked or changed his phone number, blocked me on facebook so i cant contact him. I went to the office Where I interviewed in dallas and a man told me Micah doesnt work there anymore.
Hes Owes me at least 375 dollars for my photoshoot, along with maybe an additional 100 for the bogus promotional fees as i never even got a job with him in this entire time. I believe he is purposly avoiding me. He has since launched a new website and updated with the pictures of the other two males i shot with that day, Along with many other new models. He has also been holding casting calls and adding to his model talent.
Micah Blehm is a Scammer!!! Dont believe something just because you saw it on TV. Alist my A$$
