Well, well. Model placement international IS a scam after all. Just google for the name Aaron Dario, which is in connection to lots of ripoff reports and scams. Ok, got that? I was fooled to give my money to these guys. The phone number associated with the merchant on the bill is Aaron Dario's cell phone, along with him apartment address. Yes, the merchant address actually shows an apartment number. I guess Aaron Dario/Nick Tarnowski might get a few angry rocks thrown at their apartment/door.
The current modelplacementinternational.com site has admits not connection to Aaron Dario, so that sets up the perfect crime. What do I mean by this? It's connecting the dots. Aaron Dario's name is too conspicuous now as he's in connection with scams now, again, just google his name. The new guy is under Nick Tarnowski, who claims tons of industry experience but comes outta nowhere. I suspect they're the same guy. When I went to the modeling audition, the operation is very slick and somewhat scripted. I suspect some actors are paid to go up their to do some small talk to Nick in which the actor and Nick try to legitimize each other. This is hindsight. I am shocked to see my payment associated with a known scam artist and just how unprofessional an actual apartment room is listed as the company's address. oh boy.
If you see MPI or model placement international, run hard. Their facebook page and publicity on D-list mag and Seattle top model is just a big front for more scamming. In fact, some of the MPI models I spoke to, were also very unscrupulous and many of them don't even reply. One of them even said they cant give more info without authorization when I asked them what their experiences were. What the heck??
