modelscams.org pathetic scammers!

AUTHOR: Anthony - ()

The scammer(s) from modelscams.org are replying here trying to 'set the records straight' lol this must be a joke. These guys are jokers cause they are trying to scam innocent people in the first place. To start with, All this is done to promote their books which they are selling. IF A POTENTIAL MODEL IS GETTING CONNED WHY DOES SHE NEED YOUR BOOK ? SHE IS ALREADY BEEN CONNED. YOU ARE ACTUALLY CONNING THE PERSON AGAIN YOU RETARDS. I have read one of their books and its rubbish. Very poorly written and sounded like its written by a 10 year old school play. Absolute rubbish. Oh dont forget the fake amazon book reviews saying how great they are lol

These jokers are advertising on gumtree to hire sales advisors to further conn people. They say they have a growing social media followers. This is a big lie. They used a blackhat service online to buy 'likes' and 'followers' this is the truth. If these people are so genuine why hide behind proxies and run a website with PO BOX addresses? Makes me wonder. They have spammed the internet sites with their rubbish and being the 'Guardian angles' of models. Yeah a guardian angle who charges £200 a pop lol 

Jokers hired some cheap Indian web designer on peopleperhour to do their sh*t website (Paid the poor guy $27 hr) So professional eh?

1. Why is whois details of the domains are hidden and one using fake details? Why the annonimity?

2. The author 'Jake mitchel' doesn't exisit in real world? Why a fake psudo name? Why are you hiding?

3. Why are you buying fake likes and followers? (I reported your pages to FB & Twitter so when they investigate your pages enjoy the ban)

4. Why are you CHARGING people thousands of pounds who are already victims of modelling scams? This should be 100% free.

5. Why are you writing fake reivews for companies and then contacting them and asking £6000 to remove and white list the companies? 

6. Reality check my friend who is hiding behind a proxy. You had your fun. It's over. Now stop spamming the internet and get lost.

Modelscams.org - A Scam? Really????

AUTHOR: Enough is Enough Limited - ()

The inarticulate article posted here describes as us not only a scam but more worrying a vicious one. Really?  No doubt, this was posted by scam modelling company or studio whose shoes and illegtimate income source we've sadly (not) stepped on. But nonetheless, we take any allegations against us deadly seriously and dare anyone that has any issues with us to come out publicly and make their case.  

Allegation ONE: 

Modelscams.org is probably the more vicious one of all becasue they make you beleive that they help you by charging money of course and they are slaging down other companies.  

FACT:

Most of our services are free and we expose all the modelling scams out there that so cruelly charge innocent people hundreds of Pounds for worthless model portfolios. Our public pledge is also that all our profits are reinvested into our cause. We do not see any other consumer champion making similar boasts!!!

Allegation TWO: 

They have built up their website full of their own reviews perfectly detectable.

FACT:

Really? We have over 75,000 loyal members and with good reason. Our social media following is also growing and with good reason too. These members that have been scammed and support our cause are perfectly entitled to come to our very popular website in order to post their stories, share stories with their peers and learn from both the lessons and advice of others.

OUR PLEDGE: ALL OUR PROFITS ARE REINVESTED BACK INTO OUR CAUSE TO FIGHT MODELLING SCAMS AND IF ANYBODY HAS ANY EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, WE DARE THEM TO SPEAK UP PUBLICLY!!!   

For added information, Modelscams.org is here as the unoffical government regulator to clean up the rigue aspect of not only the modelling industry but photographic studio as well. We are prepared to take the battle to the scammers and we all know what happens when you step on the toes of scammers, they get jittery and try and blacken your name. Our response? Cool, bring it on!

Full and utter transparency is the name of the game in this industry and we are extremely proud of ours.     

What’s free on Modelscams.org?

- Our tailored and bespoke online advice on ANYTHING modelling and photo studios. We do not offer generic advice but instead real answers to real questions. If you want generic advice, there's load online including on scam model websites and studios. 

- Our Model Agency Watch – where we keep members fully abreast of any modelling company and photo studios (dealing with modelling in any shape or form) plying their trade online

-  Our Newsletters

-  Our modelling/New Face site – This is for anyone seeking to get ANY form of modelling and/or TV work. With this service comes No fees! No need for a professional portfolio! Maximum exposure! Ever noticed how when you enter modelling related key words on Google, all the ads you see concerning modelling are all geared to recruiting models – but none geared to prospective paying clients? Could it be because most of these companies have little interest in finding their models work but more getting their grabby hands on their cash? You decide!

- Our monthly model competition – Free for anyone with a profile on the site. One for the male category and the other, females. Each month, the winner in each category that gets the most votes wins £100 cash!

- Our soon to launch monthly magazine called VaVaVoom. This will be free to all members and so, they’ll be no need for members to subscribe.

- Our reports on the industry including our launch free report called ‘You won’t believe this’. This again is free to all members.                               

What’s not free on Modelscams.org (but will hopefully be soon once we receive enough backing from companies and funding from the government)?

Books

Our in-depth books that not only go deep into the rogue aspect of the model industry like never before but also, expose how the scammers use big legitimate companies such as Google and Yahoo to carrying on scamming. Also discusses the best ways to approach modelling and how to make money out of it – but in a safe manner!  

Paid for membership    

As part of our fundraising, we offer those that want it Silver and Gold membership (£99.99 and £149.99 annually). With these come our fundraising competitions such as a chance to feature on the front cover or inside our free eMag, get invited to important events courtesy of our wide connections in the industry, win a trip for two to NY, a chance to be photographed by a celebrity photographer. These competitions and extras aside however, with the fundraising membership comes also more serious services. These are as follows:

- Our advice and compensation service – This service is essentially whereby we fight the cause of members’ that have been unfortunate enough to be scammed and/or ripped off. It also means that we take over the baton and craft and dispatch all the necessary correspondences designed to get some recompense for the aggrieved member. This service (which incidentally would normally cost hundreds of Pounds using a solicitors firm) entails collating all the evidence we can from the member and drawing on the ‘pen is mightier than the sword’ idiom to get action.

- Bespoke telephone advice – Granted that there are tons and tons of free advice about modelling, photographers and photo studios online. However, this service is designed for those that not only want tailored one-to-one advice but also, want it now! This could be for anything from wanting to check out a prospective client seeking to hire their modelling services to wanting advice on how much to charge a client wanting to hire them. From chasing an unpaid bill from a client to even finding out the best hotel to stay in whilst in town on a modelling assignment. This we offer through our personnel modelling advice (PMA) assistants. In fact, this has proven to be one of our more popular services. We even pay for the cost of the call if the particular member is not able to.                                            

Also, most of the bespoke services we offer our members which would normally cost them hundreds of Pounds in legal fees is heavily subsidized by the generous backing we receive from all our sponsors. To them we are deeply grateful beacuse in baking us, they are backing our cause and helping erase the filth that are modelling scams from the industry!!!
