I made the mistake of trying to pick up some extra cash by being an extra. I signed up through the phone and cancelled within a month. It was supposed to be free of charge. I cancelled everything and its a year later now and my credit card bill is showing a $98.00 charge from Showtime Casting 2.
Totally bogus and fraudulent.

#1 UPDATE Employee

There were 2 different companies using the name Star Search Casting

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

The company this person is talking about started doing business in 2003 and was only in business for about 3 years. They kept changing their name and website so people would not catch on to their scam. They were located near San Diego California in Oceanside and also used an address in Carlsbad. This is their Better Business Bureau report: http://www.sandiego.bbb.org/commonreport.html?compid=20005827

Many scammers, like this company, confuse people by using names very similar to real reputable companies. These are the names they used until they went out of business in late 2005:

Hospitality Trainers
Exposed Casting
Star Search Casting
Prime Time Casting ( http://www.PrimeTimeCasting.com )
Show Time Casting ( http://www.ShowTimeCasting.com )
Global Casting Network ( http://www.GlobalCastingNetwork.com )
Global Entertainment Network ( http://www.gcastnet.com )
Get Casted Now ( http://www.GetCastedNow.com )
Search Light Talent ( http://www.SearchLightTalent.com )
Look At Me Inc.

There is a real company named Star Search Casting, Inc. ( http://www.StarSearchCasting.com ) that has been in business since 1998 and is a member of the Better Business Bureau. You can see their BBB report here: http://www.bbbonline.org/cks.asp?id=1050419191358

Many people still confuse the scam which operated out of Oceanside California with the real Star Search Casting located in Ventura California because they used the same name.

Fortunately, the scam company is no longer around but their bad reputation continues to hurt a legitimate company.
