My mother was scammed by this "agency", and paid over $600 to them for registration only to be told later that more money would be needed for photography costs. She could not afford to put any more money into them, so we never were even represented by the agency. When asked for our money back, we were told that just like when you purchase from a store, you can only get a refund up to a certain point. SCAMMERS! This happened years ago,but I am now much older and it bothers me so much how much of a scam this agency is. They even go against codes of ethics for agencies in Canada and Ontario. They advertise on Google, and parenting magazines! NOT ALLOWED. They chare outrageous registration fees, again, NOT ALLOWED. They refer you to classes that are run be THEIR studio, and photographers that are based out of their company too! I would not be surprised if they photographer was their cousin, and the acting instructor their uncle! They are ridiculous. When asked if we could get photos from another photographer their response was,"Well I suppose you could but we need a really specific high quality headshot which is why we offer you photography services through us." ..Seriously? So please, do not go with this agency, and pass on the truth and tell your friends about them! I only wish I could get that money back for my mother, but I cannot file with the BBB because it has been more than the allowed time. So please report to the BBB if you are a recent victim! People do get jobs through them, but the agency is double dipping. Agents get paid when their actors get paid. They get COMISSION. That is why you are not to be charged to register. They get your HEFTY registration fee PLUS the 10-20% comission from each of your booked jobs. Avoid Carolyn's, and I sincerely hope that they cease to exist because their methods to success are very unethical.
