Please be aware!!!! I fell for this scam two months ago that involved my 5year old son!! My son was offered a photo shoot at the studio Marylebone road they've recently changed their name to The Fashion studio! My son had the shoot then the host ARABELLA took us into a room and congratulated my son and offered him to model for them.. she told me there was a 14day cooling off period and that he would get work within 2weeks which none of this was true as I have recently found out!! I paid out £1600 of all my savings it's the worse thing I've ever done! I regret it so much and not to mention putting my son through that!! I've tried everything to get my money back and I've had no luck .. I phoned citizens advice and they have told me that The studio have used misleading information which is The*Consumer Protection(Amendment)*Regulation s*2014 give*consumers*new private remedies where a trader lies or uses aggressive commercial practices which is exactly what they have done to me and 100's of other innocent people please do not fall for this as after you have paid out the money you will not receive any work!!! I really do not know how they sleep at night !! I've also contacted watchdog !! Jamillia maxwell and her theiving colleagues need to be stopped!!!

Now they go by another name called Match Models. The layout of the webpage is the same as The Fashion Studio/Talent Rooms, which i fell for. Please be warned not to go fall for modelling platforms. Ask for a proper contract and time to consider. Otherwise walk away.Mika

Hi Mika

It seems you have also been scammed like myself and my son, I cannot believe they have another name 😲I've been asked by citizens advice if I could get a small statement off another victim, could I ask you kindly if this is something you could do for me? As I need it for court.. please message me

Hi Mika
Just a little paragraph of what happened to you at the studio also.
I've written mine out ... it's happening to so many people they need to be stopped . I've paid court fee's I won't stop until they pay my sons money back. They have changed managers there around 5 times in just 3 months the manager they have now goes by the name of Samantha but she has been horrible, all she keeps saying is you have signed a contract stating no returns but before that I was told there was a 14day cooling off period. And she said my son would have guaranteed work within two weeks, they are actually breaking the law.. I've reminded her off the consumer regulations act but she doesn't seem to care she has my money now and you don't hear from them again! Awful people how do they sleep at night.

Hello, I have been scammed by this company myself out of the £50 deposit. When I called today the guy that picked up confirmed that this company IS a scam, he was told to use a fake name, gets calls all day about people not getting their money back and is worried himself he may not be paid his wage! I tried recording this conversation but failed and now they are no longer picking up. I don’t know what to do or where to go since £50 isn’t that much money but I am a student who is really broke and struggling to get by.

They scammed me too! They took my £50 and when I contacted them, they said they'd refund me within 14 days. That was a month ago. I really need that money as it goes towards food and bills. HELP!
