Well, given the fact the information sheets provided at the "interview" mentioned how "unproven talent" is not accepted by ANY agency without some money to back it. (This is not true! Check with the ATA, the NATR or the SCA to confirm this and NEVER sign anything that does not meet their standards!) The money you need is somewhere in the neighborhood of $700! This is to "build a portfolio" and, of course, $700 is a small price to pay for a "career" of photo shoots paying $600-1200 a piece (hah! I bet!).
The most disturbing thing about this whole matter is that the BBB lists them as a member!! This is amazing to me... how can these people belong to the BBB?? If you want to pursue modeling for yourself or your children check with the guilds/trade associations (and this site!) to verify the agencies/companies are legit.
CONSUMER BEWARE! Parents protect your pocket books and steer clear of this one!
