The rule is, if you have to pay them money, they're a scam.

You can try action fraud and disputing payment with your card company

There is no way to get a refund. They've been doing it for years so they know how to cover their backs pretty well. The best you can do is move on and believe in karma

Well, they take you into the office after taking your pictures and tell you that they have a number of agencies ready to work with you. Tell you that they already have jobs that you're well suited for already only if you'll pay for a portfolio. You pay what ever amount they decide to charge, they pass your "website" to the agencies (which are still another branch of them) these agencies ask for more money to put you on their website, if you're gullible enough you pay again and then you never hear from them. If you challenge them and ask for your money back they tell you you paid for the pictures they took not for their services. Which is kinda true cos they sent you a link to your pictures and also an email saying "thanks for paying for your images"
