Talent6 - Search for Talent

I received several emails (and saw several job posts) from a company called Talent6 offering an opportunity to make extra cash as "movie extras". I called the company to see what their pitch was. Within the first minute, the guy says "for a one-time fee of $45, you get your listing and digital photo shoot, and we guarantee to place you in a job and if not you get your $$ back". You should not have to pay anything to get a job anywhere, unless you are starting your own business or investing in one.

I asked where they were located, and he said "South San Francisco, CA". Upon doing a Google search of their name, I found this site and MULTIPLE postings from folks that were taken advantage of by Talent6.

This company is using valid job search websites to take advantage of people seeking an employment opportunity.

Don't fall for it.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

WE're NOT a SCAM! We provide a REAL SERVICE!

AUTHOR: Igor Reiant - (U.S.A.)

My name is Igor Reiant and I am the CEO of Talent6. I'd like to personally apologize for any problems any former member or employee may have encountered with our service. We've worked with over a million clients in the last two years and have designed our sales and customer support procedures to accommodate every one of them. However, as with any company, problems and mix-ups do occur, and we do our utmost to solve them and prevent similar issues from happening in the future.

We are not hiding anything. Members of Talent6 have the ability to cancel online and send questions through the site directly to Customer Support. If a client prefers to speak to the Customer Support Department by phone, our toll free phone number is provided during the initial sale and on the website. By calling 1-800-710-4210, you will be directly routed through to a real person who can answer questions, provide refunds and help you with any problems you may have. There are no phone prompts or mazes to go through and wait time typically does not exceed three to five minutes.

Talent6 is constantly working to improve our Customer Support Department, Sales Department and our website as a whole. We post thousands of new casting calls every week for people working to break into the entertainment industry. Search for Talent has also signed up hundreds of Casting Directors and Photographers who contact our members every day with upcoming opportunities. We are consistently growing and expanding, but it's not because we're a scam, it's because Search for Talent works.

In addition, while I do take great pride in www.Talent6.com and the thousands of people who have successfully used our online services.

Thank you

Sincerely,
Igor Reiant
CEO Talent6

You hit it dead on when you said you shouldn't have to pay to get a job unless you are starting your own business or investing in one. Even so, there are many scams out there run by people that charge for people just to receive information.

Great care needs to be taken when looking for work off the internet, especially at home jobs. Scammers can and will take advantage of single moms, disabled people, senior citizens, low-income familes, and anyone else who seems desperate to earn a living from home. That's why this site is so important. If you are thinking of joining any type of business or applying for a job, type the company name and see if any reports were filed. Also google them. Most importantly, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
