    Please be careful when giving your money to a model Agency I learnt the hard way, I had an email from a company call MJMM Modelling Agency, I click on there site to see what it was all about, so I join up and sent my details to MJMM, I sent a few photos of myself and then was invited to go to London to have my hair and makeup done, I did think this was free at the time as no money were ever mention, the stylist got me ready for my photos to be taken by professional, I was told to go back to the reception area and wait for an MJMM Consultant, I was then met by consultant to go to his office, he reply i have some good new and you have pass the photos shoot and ready to be come at an model, I was delighted and could not believe it until he said you will now have to pay for your Portfolio to become an full or part time model, so I said if I don't pay now what will happen, he reply you will not be a model with MJMM modelling, so pressure were now on for me, I then paid £900.00 to the agency consultant as he promise me a lot of work around London and my town... It's now been over 8 months and I haven't received any work from these guys, only email I am receiving asking me if I would like to do a job that has come up by the agency bookers, saying yes or no, so far I had said yes for all my jobs that has the agency has offer me by that's how far it gets... So please be careful who you deal with or you be scam and lose your money.... Regards KM
    Hiya,

    It's unfortunate that you spent so much money for nothing. Hopefully an opportunity comes up soon.

    My brother paid around £500 for his portfolio of about 10 pictures yet he hasn't received any jobs around a year later. Waste of money if you ask me.
