    It's a scam. Don't bother. A genuine modelling agency will never ask you for money. You haven't signed a contract, they can't do anything.

    is this 'London fashion models' by any chance? Anyhow, DO NOT pay any money, as it's a scam. REAL model agency NEVER asks you to pay for anything, as they cover all of your expenses.

    There's an entire thread lurking about somewhere on TSR in regards to London Fashion Models, and these other fake model agencies asking people to pay odd prices for their 'portfolios'

    Scam. Do not pay.

    Look on this forum for model agencies and you will see many examples of scammers asking for money.

    Don't give them a penny, they are probably some disreputable outfit who will send your pics to third parties and charge you an agency fee.

    Scam this has happened to me time and time again. I'll always do research and ask for advice before I even bother attending any photo shoot or interview. Never pay for anything.
