Applied for gig below & was texted by "Diana Carrington" 347-708-2493 to join a conference call with "Vincent Castillo." There were about 10 model applicants on the call, & he asked us to list our agencies and experience. I don't have an agency, & I got a text message from "Diana Carrington" that I got the job the next day. I thought it was suspicious because many of the other models on the call had a lot more acting experience and were agency represented while I don't have an agency, so that's probably why they selected me, & I started to smell a scam. Was instructed to call "Vincent Castillo" again who asked me what agency I was with, knowing that I already stated on the call that I don't have one. He then told me that since it was a union job that Casting Central http://castingcentral.info/ could file the SAG voucher paperwork for Taft-Hartley for me for $60. I did some research and found a similar scam reported here http://www.ripoffreport.com/back-2-basic-marketi/talent-scouts/internet-internet-ae71d.htm I'm so sick of scammers preying on broke job seekers looking to make an honest living, and I'm already poor & they're trying to rip me off of $60 that I can't afford. I texted them back that it's a scam & they had the nerve to tell me that I got my information wrong. I reported this to the NFL & ripoffreport.com & idiotsofcraigslist.com. Let's report scams & help each other put these con artists out of business & weed out illegitimate opportunities on Craigslist as much as possible. To these idiots, f you.
