Then I noticed I was being charged a monthly fee of $9.95. I was never told of this recuring fee. I was told only of the one time starting fee. The only way to contact the company was through a 800 number that put me on hold for an hour.
The man said that I was told about the $9.95 fee when I signed up and that they could review the tapes if I waited longer on hold. The man also insisted that I hadn't used the service correctly and that there were many jobs. So I agreed to look for jobs online. When I went online I found 2 modeling jobs in my area, none of which I qualified for.
So I called back again. And asked to cancel the account and be refunded the fees I wasn't told about. I told him to review the tape of my first conversation with the agency. The man came back on the line saying he reviewed the tapes and that I was told about the fee. I asked him to play me the tape but he refused and said I had to speak to the general manager about that, who would conveniently not be available for 3 more days.
He also said that I was sent an email about the fees. I never recieved any emails from them. There is no way to contact the company online. Nor is there a way to cancel your account with them. They make you call the number and wait for hours.
I have been charged $79 with this company for nothing. What a rip-off!
