Omg I wish I read these reviews before I went today. I couldn't believe it's in a little unit in a not so nice area. I read to believe on the application that to come get some free shoots and see if you have potential, which they said i did which i was suprised about tbh. I had my feed back then i was talked to about agents in London, I'm a single mum with 2 dependants I can't travel to London and im not working so can't afford 300 for portfolio. Luckily I've not spent any money as I didn't have it hence unemployed which I put on my application. Yhey said they give me a week cool off period but they be hetting an email to say sorry burn photos and thanks for wasting my precious time.

Please can you let me know what you have done as they took £500 off my credit card and now when I call, they are saying that they will call later and then they don’t. I was made to believe that as well and mine juss happened recently on the 16th of May 2019. These pole are scums, they juss take ur money and watch u leave knowing what they are doing. I hope karma comes back to haunt them because I’m a struggling single parent of two children who is surviving on maternity pay and they had the nerve to take that lot knowingly. I have called I have send emails I have done all sorts, they are ignoring me.




I also need to take action. What can I do please. They took £500 from me
I’m in the process now of trying to report this company. I’m getting nowhere on regards to getting a refund no response on emails

Hi Everyone...I have been in the same situation I paid £500 for nothing.
They don`t want to refund your money.We need to report them to ACTION FRAUD which I did...and everybody should do that cause if they see more complain about the same compony hopefully they will do something.
And please report them to Trading Standars as well I just spoke with them,they will do some action if more people reporting them.
This is the helpline I called:03454040506

Hi there Jana and others. I shoot today with M models,an online booking.com agency. Their are suited in London at Camden Studio close to William hill beeting shop. So I showed up today for the free shoot,waited for a few minutes to see if I made it to which I did but they later told me that a certain amount has to be done ranking from £300 to £2000.. I didn't pay them anything,I just told them I will tomorrow. Is this the same agency that screwed you over???

A general note about these scamming modeling agencies, on how to tell if theyre scamming you:

Normal modeling agencies shouldnt ask you for money straight up without giving you any more than a few minutes to decide. If you go to a modeling shoot and are later told you got in and need to pay for a package etc and youre not sure if its real, (1) say you cant make that decision today and need a few days to decide. see how they react (2) ask for more details about the package. you want to see eveyrthing in writing before signing anything (2) READ THE CONTRACT and tell them you need 10 minutes to read it and that they should give you that time. In my experience, the sales guy was speaking soooo fast and whenever id be trying to read the contract, hed ask me personal questions to distract me. DONT let them rush you. If you find theyre rushing you its highly likely its a scam.
