This company is advertising in the AJC newspaper and online for Extras to appear in local movies and commercials, etc. They call you in for a bogus audition where they show you a barrage of pictures of actors and models they claim to have signed and seduce you with their success and income. They make a point of noting that John Casablanca owns Elite Modeling and Talent and MTM and link it with the Tyra Banks Show and other well known models and actors.
Then they have you walk a short runway and tell you that your name will be called if you have been selected to be represented by the agency. Once they have kidnapped your dreams, they to proceed to take every opportunity to capitalize on them. once they are convinced that they have your attention and your are feeling privileged lucky and dizzy with excitement they proceed to ask you for over two thousand dollars and manage to subtly slip in the mention of classes.
I became suspicious when after my second meeting they danced around my question about the professional photo shoot included in the package. Two business days later, after finding many many complaints and accusations of frauds and scams perpetrated by this company, I sent, by certified mail, a notice of cancellation of the contract and requested my two hundred dollar deposit back.
That was almost two months ago, I have called the company several times, have not gotten my money back and have been given the run around. When are these white collar crimes going to get the action that honest consumers deserve. I will not stop until I have what they owe me.
