everything started the weekend of fathers day, my wife was shopping for my gift with my 2 year old kid, and according to her some young girl claim to be a scout for a modeling agency, told her that he will be perfect for it and took down her info, after that they called my wife a couple of times then she gave them my phone number, they called me and schedule an appointment for that weekend well i went, it was in Hicksville ny 272 duffy , when i got there i saw other parents and kids, waiting to be seen or to see pics, the wall were painted in a rush it looked like they just moved in, it looked fishy to me, but everything because of my child, i waited to be seen then a guy named Omar Tovar  called me in said my son was really cute he was playing with him and talking to him and asking him questions to see if he would like to be in pictures my son loves pictures by the way he said yes, then he started with me telling me, this is what they do how they did it and showed me some thank you emails with pics of other kids that they represented in the business, he said he guarantee job for him three weeks after we finish the three step enrollment with mtd. he said give me a minute let me check if their is any available jobs for him he left the office for 5 minutes to do who knows who, they he came back and told me yes their is  jobs that fit his characteristics. Then he took out the three step process to enroll first the photos that because he needs to make a business card for him with profesional pics, i said ok then he said the next step is for us to come see the pics and if we would like to have them we need to pay them 45$, then he said last step is to come and sign the promotional material. I asked how you guys get paid" he said we get paid by the company that hires your kid you dont need to pay anything to us" i said ok that is good wrong that is the trick right there , that is the lie. well then he said the first part of the process the photo shoot this the the price sheet i looked at it i was like what prices are redicules , a photo shoot 600 $ for one change of clothing just cause it has a head shot that i quote "the head shot is very important for businesses" I asked him do people actually pay 2000 for a photo shoot he showed me a paper of the weekend before that 11 people paid that price, that was fishy to me, but i saw my kids face and he was happy i said i take the 700 $ one . Then he said if you pay in full i give it to you for 550$ i agree the n he came out saying with taxes it will be 600$ i did not like that part either that is not taxes for ny state, i paid with a feeling in my stomach saying to me you are an idiot.he came back and said their is an opening in the studio if you want to take the pics now, my child was well dress that day so i said ok then he takes me to a back room with a heater on a photographer with a mess up t shirt and a photo studio i can do in my own house. Omar said to me before you go stop at the front desk to make an appointment to come and see the pics, i did they schedule me for three days later, i came back that day to see the pics waited for three hours , they had a lot of kids there , when they called me they said we had trouble with or systems sorry they showed me the pics and then explain to me the next step that is promotional material, they showed me the mail in cards that if they print out a bunch it would be 550 $ and it takes 4 to 5 business days to arrive but if we purchase the website access they will promote my child every day and any company can log in to see them the price the same 550$ but only for three months. i told them i will call back cause i need it to talk to my wife. that was sunday today is tuesday and i asked my wife how she wanted to pay them, then i decided to google them and i found that a lot of people have posted things about this horrible people taking advantage of the love of parents for their kids and promising false hopes for them, they should pay for that, i fell for it they took 600$ of my hard earn money, i would not like this to happen to any one else. people they aim for your kids do not fall.
