Complaint Review: John Casablancas
John Casablancas Scam!!! Internet
OK, so in 2008 I wanted to know some things about modeling being 17 yrs old I saw there advertising in the mall so I called them up one day and they said they were having a learning session and wanted me to come. So I come and make you I introduce yourself and tell whether you want to do acting or modeling and then you walk down the aisle and they give you a "rating" and I got a B+ and then they let you know if they'd rather have you acting or modeling. And then they tell you that you have to wait for a phone call to let you know that you have been chosen to move on to the next step.
So then they call me back and congratulates me for making it to the next level, which they probably call everyone back regardless (it's all part of their game plan). Ok so they want me to cone in for another interview, but before this I ask them what it will cost. Note that she would not answer me and would not tell me anything about the cost and claims that " if you're good enough you won't have to pay but it varies" and she's very careful about not revealing anything about the cost.
So I come to the next interview to see what this b***h has to offer me or entertain me with. I come and she had me waiting for a good half an hour and then comes in and so were talking and so wants upfront fees of about $1000 bucks. I'm thinking to myself aw hell no and I look this b***h in the eye and I just get this creepy cold hearted feeling like I was about to get trapped into being a prostitute or something of that matter is what I was feeling. She began to become very quick and impatient with me and kept saying there was only a couple spots left and that I couldn't afford to pass this up. I kept telling her that is way too much and wanted to know why those photo retouching classes and miscellaneous classes were necessary and she kept insisting and then I was just getting fed up with the way she made me felt so I had to even lie to get out of her office because she locked me in! I had to lie and say I was going to go hone and write a check and bring it right back because I didn't have the money on me right now. And even then she was concerned telling me she expected me back in a half hour. I got out and ran like hell to my car and booked outta there! I have not felt so mind rapped in my entire life.
The sad part is that I was sexually assaulted when I was younger but I'm not stupid. What's sad is that some of the girls that wanna be a model are those with low self esteem already that might have even be raped as a child then they go to them trying to raise their self esteem and in turn they take advantage and in a way rape that girls mind instead of their body. I dont know, I just think someone seriously needs to sue this company for everything they have for all the money they have basically robbed from these innocent people. Thank god I trusted my guts!! Bottom line, no legit agency will make the people who are making money for them have to pay a d**n dime. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. I fear for families having anything to do with this company.
