Feeling so stupid. Robbed of £800. Cancelled both cards involved. Will phone the police for all the good it will do. Thinking of sending in some heavies! I will contact BBC etc local press. They are lying (never mind the expensive photos) as they promise you a website etc.
Just call up the General Manager on +44 20 3026 5369

They are getting away with it because people like your girlfriend are naive. All these companies do is give you couple of pictures and enter you into their database. They don't guarantee that you will become a model, or that anyone will hire you. So it's legal.

Very true, I got the general manger number from here I tried to call them countless of times no answer. I send the number to girlfriend funny thing was they have answered after calling them twice , they said she won't get a refund due to her contract she have signed but said they will promise work by next week which it's a lie no call going to happen by next week .I've should of known earlier because when she applied n got appected to the model the person name was Tom when we turned up to the place. The person asked who asked referred u to here my girlfriend said tom all the stuff didn't known the person expect the agent at the end n said they never herd of him . I shouldn't of ignored it that's was the sign of Dodginess.

Hi

I was igmored since february etc paid £1000 now i left a feedback on trustpilot they reported. Not sure why and how long tp investigates but lfm asked me to remove it and i couldnt cause it was already reported??!

I have a form to report them to
https://www.gov.uk/government/organi...lvency-service
But im waiting as I asked A lady (not putting name since trustpot) on phone to give me refund instead if extended (no) service.
And if nothing then i report but im not sure whats happening after that.

I feel like we should all team up and work because like this absolutely nothing will happen. They operate which proves this.
Im afraid reporting wont do anything.

QUOTE=evgarner23;71830198]The police will want something to stick to them and I can guarantee they are committing some type of fraud, especially in light of the Company Registration. They use images on their website etc. which they probably don't have copyright for and will be taking money in off victims and not paying tax. I'm going to investigate (I work for an anti-fraud data management company) and research options to take them down because there will be one and I have evidence.

This is the ratbag behind the operation, he's even spoken about scamming to cover his back.[/QUOTE]

I am determined in bringing this non reputable company down, I have contacted Burberry who have said they will pass my query onto a different department in their business and I have asked to receive a reply but am unsure if I should receive one, but I know that they are working on the issue, Furthermore, I have contacted Hugo Boss and await a reply, tomorrow I will be contacting Zara and Gap, hopefully, they have more power than I to stop this con.
Don't bother. Haven't you realised yet that the agency is a money-making device with little if any interaction with the legitimate powerhouse brands? I can't believe you lot are so naive.
