Hi, I was recently scouted on instagram through face.model.agency / urban model agency and I've been contacted through whatsapp and selected but they're asking for a £19.99 registration fee for a membership ID on their site which I need to sign up for casting opportunities. I was just wondering if this is mormal/ legit?

Never pay for photos or pay for membership fees. Always do your research I did and I have recently got myself out of a scam.

I also got scouted my urban model agency. I’ve been receiving photo shoot opportunities via WhatsApp but not sure if there legit. They want £19.99 to complete registration. It’s not a lot but still don’t want to get scammed. Has anyone signed up? Or can give more details about this agency to validate them

Hi there, they are not good. I applied with them and the next day they gold hold of me sent me a mesaage on whatsapp. And said congratulations you havw bwwn put forward for a paid shoot. If you havw any questions if me a call. And the following day i called them 9 times no answer what so ever. And then yesterday a few times still no answer and the woman who messaged me i swnt her lota of messages . She read them and ignored them. And then i said to her what i think because ivw been ripped off by so many people for modelling . And i said to her to take down there so called website because its a load of rubbish and the voicemessage sounds fake. And i had to pay 19.99 too but luckly i didnt pay it. Just be careful guys add me on instagram roxylvsdamian1998

Big scam! After receiving the Whatsapp messages and getting constantly bombarded to pay this £19.99 membership I went online to check reviews then I questioned the women texting me about how legitimate the company is and she replied saying I had been removed from the system because of that

Hi this same exact thing is happening to me! It was supposed to be a one time payment and I noticed that they have been trying to take £20 each month off of a ‘subscription’ I never agreed to! How do you stop this from happening
