I'm sorry to hear I feel your pain . How they been getting it away with it , what makes wonder. There website and there reviews at turst polite when u turn up in there office for trial, fools people I guss. My girlfriend is in the same situation as u I wish I can help her and to find the way can't. Still dosent add up of how they been getting away with it for years leaves me wondering
We got scammed this afternoon as well with the same so called agency. Maybe we could all go and report them instead.
Stop being nieve
You bought a portfolio
Go to thier head office in Oxford St Monday speak with one of the model co ordinators
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
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.
here is an article to justify that what they are doing is a scam!!!
there is a documentation of this scam as well.
I went here on Wednesday with my son, I can't believe how they can do this to people I ended up forking out £1500 they need to be stopped
card payment of £1500 for an Efolio and promises of modelling and TV work within a month. Non of this ever materialised and they stopped answering my calls,
complaints and emails.Extremely embarrassed, frustrated and upset I phoned my Bank to see if there was any way of claiming my money back. FORTUNATELY
there was. I had to submit all the paperwork and communication with LFM to the bank to confirm that LFM had not delivered the goods. The bank took on my
complaint and said that they would allow 45 days for LFM to contest the dispute
and if they did not do so then the money would be refunded. As it happened LFM did not wish to dispute the complaint and did not request the money back. I have since had my payment refunded. London fashion models and many others are
just a con operation.
Right now, I am feeling completely helpless, I just went there a mere 24 hours ago and was told the exact same thing, my mum, warned me but I kept saying that it was something that I wanted to do and needless to say I fell for it, I didn't go as far as paying for the online portfolios due to financial issues, however, the woman kept saying I should pay £2500 but she'd give me the platinum deal, therefore investing £3500 in me, but I persisted that I wasn't capable of paying that amount so I ended up paying for a basic portfolio which meant £500 and now looking back I realise how big of a mistake that was. Now, I am just wondering if there is any way possible to even attempt to get my money back since as I mentioned I am not completely financially stable and now I'm left with 110 photos and an agency pack, which are completely useless, I spoke to my friend and she mentioned that I should apply to agencies myself so that if I do get accepted into reputable agencies for instance Wilhelmina models I'd be guaranteed to get my money back some way or another but as for now I am frustrated beyond expression and hope that nobody else is dragged into this.
