Seriously don't bother i worked for this company actually meet all the bosses made phone calls to book people in and take deposits over the phone the question is are they a scam ? the short and disappointing answer is no you went to the studio and bought some pictures the price can be 2 pound or 2000 theres no law that states you have to be cheap and on top of that you signed agreement that states they are not an agencies and don't give refunds what evidence does any one have written down of any job offers that would be illigal the law is no employment agency in the uk can charge employess up front fees or payments not just modelling all employment agencies but london fashion models are not an agency they say so on the website and you can see the prices on the website i dont get it maybe some of you thought u was going to be kate moss over night i urge people to be realistic about their goals and what you are trying to archive here thats the issue u want to be a model ? be a dentist or a humanitarian

Are you serious.. THE STUDIO WORKS LIED to us, making us believe there is work lined up.. They painted a picture and fooled up into believing total fabrication. You weren't there so I suggest you keep your mouth shut. If you have nothing good to say then dont bother.

Anyone had any complaints with Oxy Studio? One Models in London, I was promised lots of work to help pay for the portfolio only for them to take hundreds and hundreds of pounds from my account now saying I need to pay for pictures FIRST!!! I’m so angry I have been lied to so believably I feel such a fool but have reported them!

I have also been stung and I’m mature “model”
Trading as One Models @ Oxy Studio in London, was told how amazing I was, how much work they had for me with M&S, ASOS, many many more! They assured me that they would provide me lots of lucrative work first to pay off my portfolio, just to get me to sign before getting my train back to manchester after a full day at 10pm at night.
I then realised after over £500 had been taken out of my account and not one phone call about any assignments that I too had been conned.
I have reported them to the credit card company and now need to know who to contact at trading standards because this place was full of people like me. All sadly believing in their con.

Hi Kimmy, I've had something similar with Oxy / One Models - I seem to be in a loop and not getting any answers from them as to where my pictures are etc, beginning to think I've been scammed. Who do you reccommend reporting them too ?

I have just been claiming money back through my Credit Card company after getting caught up in the Zera Models / Medio Style studio webfolio scam through my 15-year old daughter. I am not 100% certain if I have been successful yet, but the Credit Card company has now removed the transactions from my account which is a very positive for me. I can supply my detailed submission to the Credit Card company to anyone who asks.
