I was scammed over $900 with TCT talent. At first I started as a talent scout then sign on as a model. I never suspected anything with them. It all seemed real to me and others. Seeing big corporations such as MTV and LA Models (just to name a few) using TCT to help them look for people made it so believeable. I would later find out that neither MTV or LA Models use TCT or are affiliated with them

As a talent scout I was told to go around and bring people into open calls. My boss would throw pressure us into bringing in more and more people every time. Tiny Fay (the office amanager) once called me "pathetic" for not having a certain amount of people in at the door.

As a model I recevied a few job offers for models via email but most of them were out of my range. For example most of the job requirments were that I had to be a certain age or height or skin type. Finally fed up with the BS and excuses I quit and further more told the comapny to stop sending me emails and updates since I want nothing to do with them anymore.

Its been almost a year since I've joined with TCT. I've lost over $900 with them and am ashamed to have been part of this scam. Its been very difficult to lose that amount of money. I am currently trying to pay off college bills and other bills and this current situation is making it hard for me. I only want my money back and for this company shut down once and for all so they can't screw other people over.
