London Fashion Models/ The Studio Work/Studio41Watch
Wow yes something NEEDS to be done, they are flaunting the law and laughing at the police as with this magic way of stealing money without repercussion. I am sure that TV comps would love to do an exposé on this. My friend who has just lost her home in the Grenfell tower tried to cheer up her duagher with this and was scammed out of £5000.00 - Yes Id like to get a few people together to bring these people down.
THE STUDIO WORKS is a scam! I can`t believe how is it possible to happen! So many people have been lied and The studio works continue to lie every day new and new people. I have singed a contract with a "viewer" Mia Viewer(!) and she said the contract includes 5 castings per month (golden package) for 12 months. She repeated with excitement so many times that she guarantees my success and my job. THE STUDIO WORKS has never responded my emails; very rarely someone has answered on the phone. They have never given to me any specific and detailed information about the next step; they were only repeating I need to wait, it will take time... The studio works had sent me my ''website'', 15 min after my first visit to their Head office where I went to check why they don't respond to me. When I saw this website, I realised that there is no any connection between my website and The studio works; it hangs on in the middle of the nowhere. In the website of the agency you can't find any models; there are only few pictures without names and contacts. My photos are still not there...! The studio works has nothing to do with the modelling! I will make any efforts to take MY MONEY BACK. I NEVER GIVE UP!
Hello, I'm so sorry to hear about your situation, I've also been scammed by this company who charged me the same! I'm going to my bank about it but they need to be stopped and we need to be compensated. I'd like to go further into this with you so please message me if you can
It happened to me with The studio work. Is it a SCAM? I payed a lot of money. They are supposedly waiting for me to send them my measurements. What can you tell me?

We have been conned by the studio Works promising modelling photo shoots to our daughter by paying them £3500. Never heard from them again. They continue to operate and take advantage of young people dreaming to become models. Nobody seems to be doing anything about this. You should raise awareness of this scam
Email me on [email protected] and stand with us to get compensated for the nightmare they have cast upon us let alone it happening to anyone else
I phoned em back next day when i realised for them to fob me off n say i shouldn't believe reviews.
Its been a month n ive had no work.no aftercare and no proffessional portfolio. I hate pics they put up n asked them to ask me before it went live n they havmt worked on it at all. Scam scam scam!
Police are involved and trading standards are deciding what action they are going to take to stop these awful people robbing us
Can anyone give me some details about this company please? I took my daughter down to London last week for her photo shoot and felt right away that the place was 'dodgy'. We almost didn't go in. But we went and did the shoot. I made excuses that I couldn't stay to view the pics as I had a train to catch so I didn't speak to the consultant. But now i'm not sure I even want to bother viewing the pics? Do they try and force you into buying pics etc?
They will sign on behalf of you whether u want them to or not. Please dont go! Its had so many already. The police and trading standards are on their backs now. If i can stop it happening to more people i will. It ruined my Christmas
https://actionfraud.police.uk/) and complete your case there and get a CRN or you also can call 0300 123 2040 to report it in week days during their working hous, then a police will ask you to describe your case and record it then gives you a CRN. More people report it then police will know how serious this thing is. I am still trying other ways, and waiting for some results, so once I have some successful things happened I will post them to your guys for reference.
My case was quite bad, I think they gave different people different prices, that night, I only had 3 packages - £3500, £5000 & £7500 to choose. I remember that the guy - Zac wanted to get my money from my credit card from his computer system - Barclay card system, it was rejected couple times and then he tried to use PDQ mecaine, the same thing happened. I had to call my bank to unblock the security, then my payment could only go through PDQ mechain. (Gosh, how come I was so stupied to do so.) I think my bank detected the account wanted to get my money is some kind of scamming account, so could not go through. So I already reported to my bank couple times to my bank and am waiting for bank's action. According to Citizen Adice Bureau's suggestion, a person can ask credit card or debit card's issuer to block a transaction and the bank should do so, but of course they will take some time to investigate your case. So the same, I will suggest people who are victims here to do the same thing, then banks normal exhange some scamming information, then they will know some accounts are dangerous for you to pay money in.
There are some discussions in "BEWARE - London Fashion Models Scam" discussion, it's the same company. You guys can go there to have a look some discussions. If we get together, actually we can report many cases to police and banks, then more cases, they will start to do something for us.
I also found the company use topmodels.one to attract people to sign in, then the studio itself has few different names, Studio, Studio 41, Noir, Noir 41, Sudio Work. I also found that when the wanted to use his computer to take my money, the money would go to an account called "Matthew Reece".
I fell in this trick, but I found it's a scammer in the next day (Within 24 hours), it wasn't too bad. However, now I worry about those people I saw in the studio, they were very nice, we smiled to each other and encourage each other. They may be celebrating their new future at the moment, but in few weeks or couple months time, they will realise that they are scammed. I don't know how to contact them, but only hope they can see these discussions ASAP, then do something to help themselves.
Yep paid 2500 with deal i would get 3 jobs leading to 6 a month n make my money back for christmas. They have continually fobbed me off...websites terrible...substandard n cant get money back from bank on credit card. Its made me ill! Reported to action fraud. Has anyone got their money back? I wrote a letter outlining i wanted a refund a few days after i realised they arnt an agency so its illegal to find me work...they said my consumer rights are irrelevant on personal items...but they havnt met the standard n aftercare let alone a job after. They said 6 days n my website will b live...3 weeks on im still waiting for them to change as they didnt ask what images i wanted. My 10 yr old could do a better job. Im a single mum with 2 kids...this has broken me
That night (Last Friday night), I saw a good dad bought his 6-year-old beautiful draughter to do her photoshoot, and a teenager black beautiful slim girl with her parents, and other good people who went there with their hope. I quite worry about them. They may start to realise that they are scammed few weeks or couple months later. I really would like to pre-print some papers and stand around that Studio and see people who are going to go in and give my pre-printed papers to them and stop them to go though the pain I am going through now. However, I have to go to work, and can't help those people who will fall into this trick everyday.
I really am worried about what I have got my self in to.
