Phaze2 is a scam.  The agency takes advantage of peoples' hopes and dreams to become a model.  

1st they scout out at the mall.  You put your name an contact information.  
A few days later a person calls to give you an appointment.  

Upon arrive you will be greeted by the front desk.  They will require that you sign in and then direct you to a waiting area where you will wait for hours before you are seen by a sells person.  

The person in my case was Joel Tavarez. He will ask to see pictures of your child.  He will leave the office to show then to his manager.  He will return with good news.  He will say that they are looking for children in that age group and there is a lot of work for them now.

He will then show you portfolios and along with it magazine of the children that are on the portfolio.  We will stated that each child made up to but not limited to $1,000.00 a page.  He will then give you list of prices for the shoot.  The cost ranges from $1,100.00 to 2,000.00.

He will then leave the office so that you could think.  In the mean time you are being recorded the entire time you are in the office.  He will return.  

If you select a photo shoot he will advise you to take the portfolio with two different outfits for the price of the one outfit.  He will tell you the you will receive 100 of your photo but in the contract he will only write 80 photos.  

He will then leave the room to talk to the manager to inform her which you chose.  He will then return with good news again.  He will say that the manager is going to give you three different outfits for the photo shoot.  

I you look at the contract closely you will notice that on number 14 it says, Affiliates: "Customers also understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement with Phaze2, there is absolutely no guarantee whatsoever that Model Talent Project (hereinafter referred to as " Model Talent Project") shall select Customer as a potential attendee to the IMTA convention".  

If you sign the contract you it will state that for a full refund you need to send a certified mail postdate within three days of your execution of the agreement.  

They promise to give you prints out of the portfolio and they promise to advertise your photos on Phaze3.com.  But in reality they never give you the printout of the portfolio and they give you a CD with pictures of head shoots. You will end up pay 1,500.00 for pictures you could have gotten in Sears.  

Phaze2 and Phaze3 are scams to get your money.  They promise you anything for the sell but all you get is a CD of over priced head-shoots.  

PS.  Upon entrance you will notice a big pace and office with worker not trying to get model jobs instead they are just there to make a sale.  If the sale one package to 10 families they are making over 10,000 a day because each package cost 1,100 and up.
