Complaint Review: Wlhelmina Talent Agency - Trans Continental Talent Inc.
Wlhelmina Talent Agency - Trans Continental Talent Inc.1701 Park Center Drive Orlando, Florida U.S.A.
Wlhelmina Talent Agency Or Trans Continental Talent Inc. They said that I had the look and if I needed to make a decision about my carrer, how fast would it be if I want somthing that bad. Orlando, Also In Los Angeles Florida, and in California
Then I was asked all these questions like, "if had to make a decision quick?" "Or how bad do I want this?" After that, they took me to a room and showed me this viedo on all the events that was suppose to take place in Florida later on that year. After that they took my took me to this office where I met Christine and she told me the same thing that every one else said. You know, "I have the look!", I look good in red!" "Red is my favorite color!", etc...Then the gave me that question again.."If you have to make a quick decision, how quick would it be?
After that, They interview me and said that they would sign me on as one of their models. They gave this contact to look over and sign and the fees were $995.00 plus $25.00 a month. The $995.00 was the online comp card. That comp card was to be looked over by all top people all over the world and I would get work right away. $25.00 a month was for me to keep it going each month. Also if I was to miss a payment, then they would pulled me offline with no refunds back.
To this day, I feel so dumb for getting sucked into this. I was pressured and I knew that this was a scam but I went along with it because they made it seem so easy. There was another lady who help me with the comp card but I did get her name. She infomed me that I need to keep my pictures fresh and nice. I did get some work...Trade shows, but I had to "chase after them" because on the site, it was just bunch of crapy listings that is it. No photo shoots, nothing.
A couple of months later, I kept getting emails and phons calls about the model show in Flordia. All of this will cost me a thousand dollars, which I did not have. I was promised that if I go, that I will be discoved. I said no, they did not take it well. A month later I cancel my account with them and filed a ton of complants. This was at the end of 2003.
Long Story short, I just want my money back. I know that it is a long shot but I got screwed. I do not want this to happen to anybody else and this needs to be STOPPED!!!!
Los Angeles, California
