I got a call today at 12:38 from a man that said his name was Marcus, and that he was with this "explore talent". He told me that I was the perfect match for up coming additions around my area. I was excited about what he was saying and didn't even think back to remember that I never even get around to putting up a picture of myself.
He said that I would get 100% of what ever I made and I wouldn't have an agent. Being young and in need of money it all sounded good to me, a little too good. He said that I had to come up with $199 in order for me to get any kind of information on where the additions would be and stuff.
I told him that I just started to live on my own and don't have that kind of money right off the bat. He was very addament about the money, and that there were 10 other girls wanting this. So it was a now or never thing.
We came to an agreement that I could call him back after I tried to get the money from my father.
I waited for about an hour when I got to thinking about it all. The money he said I would make sounded great to me. It was just that it sounded too good to be true. Why would they need a credit card number and not you just send them a check or something of that sort?
I never called Marcus back, but when I got home I read up on this "explore talent" and found nothing but bad news. The only good things you can read about it is from the people that work there.
I didn't lose any money like some of the other people on here. I just want to try to help other people from losing money that they can't really afford to lose in today's economy.
Please everyone, be careful of this "explore talent".
