OK this is how it started. 2 weeks ago I registered as a member and received a call today from ERIC, Senior Casting Director. It started off pretty well, though his accent was heavy and sounded like he is situated oversees. OH YEAH, he sounded very young and very unprofessional. I kind of figured till now that this is one of the scam artist and stayed on the phone to hear the part when he is going to ask me for a payment.. He went on to know more about me and said that many directors are interested to cast me after seeing my pic. Since I dont have any professional photoshot of me, he said not to worry and not to spend my money on a proffessional shot, as he will hook me up with a photographer free of charge.
He mentioned that I will be working with movie industry big banners. He mentioned couple of roles in my city that were done deal for me. I just had to show up, do whatever, and get paid..GOSHHH IS IT MY LUCKY DAY OR WHAT...I have worked a lot in telemarketing and it was easy to tell that he is building this "trust" between us. He explined me how this whole thing works and mentioned that he is about to create my very own website. He stayed on the phone for like 30 min then I ended up asking him about the cost. He then laughed and explained me the membership fee for a 3 month, 6 month, or year option. When I made an excuse for not enrolling right now, he got a little upst and said rudely that he has waisted 1/2 an hour and hung up. He then wanted to get off the phone quickly. I cant belive he hung up on me. Any professional will not do such thing.
Their website sounds too good to be true, as well as these scam artists who are running the company. I make $60/hr, which is almost a 3 month enrollment fee. To me the issue is not money, issue is that I could have gotten ripped off by some scums who are building their empire by only lying.
