SEO Reputation Management at its best!

There's a new modeling scam surfacing. Luckily I did my research and did not fall for it. Basically they do a casting call on craigslist.com and other similar sites on the web seeking models for a so called national catalog campaign for a non existent designer named Bethy Designer ( http://www.alphaomegadigital.com/bethydesigner ) - Fake site!

They email you the payment details and get your name and address as to where to mail the check to. They inform you that you will receive a check in a higher amount than agreed and instruct you to send the remaining portion to another party for photo shoot equipment purposes while making a vague excuse as to why they must have you send it instead of them. Please be careful! The check they sent me was drawn on a closed account that looks professional. I'm glad I called their bank first!

This person claims to work for a fashion designer who goes by Bethy Designer (who does not exist based on research). They do provide a fake website showcasing photos that may look like a high end designer, yet their casting states all shapes and sizes which indicates that they want to scheme a wider variety of people.

The person I have encountered went by the following email addresses:

realityshow2324@yahoo.co.uk and realityshow2324@gmail.com

The person who communicated with me went by the name of Eldee Martins but I have several other names which include the name on the check, business owner, the name of whom this person wanted me to wire money to, and so on.

It is possible that someone's identity has been stolen due to the many names involved, but it may be more than one person working together to scam people since they continue to post casting calls online.

Be careful and do not fall victim to any offer which requires you to send money back. Many different schemes revolve around this very idea, of having the victim send money back.

My Father is Dale Olson

AUTHOR: Sandi Olson - (U.S.A.)

My Father, Dale W. Olson ,mentioned in this report... IS a victim of I.D. theft! He has NOTHING to do with the check scam that is being spread from coast to coast... The BANDITS behind this ,obtained his debit card number from him (I believe this happend VIA internet purchase) His bank account was all but bare after these people TOTALLY charged all kinds of everything on line! 1300.00 worth of flowers sent overseas online!... Thankfully a call was made to verify an overseas cell phone purchase, That was our "heads UP! Also United Parcel Service (UPS) came to the door and advised us that our home had been set up as a "Shipping Station" I called UPS right away....Please keep this in mind this was to be charged to my fathers Checking account debit card.
My Father( Dale W. Olson) is 83 years old, A retired Marine Chief CID 28 years, also retired LAPD polograph invist.
I TRY to remain calm... I answer the phone....Phone rings mostly M-W since these checks are shipped "next day" on fridays the return address with my fathers name and our home address, some even with our home phone number on it .... I Thinks this really stinks! MY father is 83.. BLIND and has NOTHING to do with this GARBAGE!
I feel bad for the victims of this SCAM so WE WILL NOT change our phone number... I DO want to let people know to NOT count on these checks...... IF THE PERSON THAT HAD WRITTEN THIS REPORT HAD CALL I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SAVE HER THAT BS... You had the number !
