Can anyone tell me if xenon models in market place london is legit.
I know some agencies take a fully refundable deposit and some dont but charge £100 for 12month contract.

This one is asking for a fully refundable booking fee of £50.

I read briefly the thread, one of the people behind xenon models is none other than Chelsea Singh,(big brother celebrity reject). I would be careful about going to their office to claim your money back as he usually has heavy's with him. this is coming from someone who worked for this organization for about 2 weeks and realized I wasn't going to get paid.No career will take off from working with them. one of his buddies who goes under the name mike or daniel or multiple other alias' is a small-time club owner from Malta. They operate from a pub in Marylebone.

I have also been to xenon models in london. I paid 1000 pounds for their highest "package" which costs like 8000 pounds. But in the meeting after my shoot i told that man that i cant pay that much. he said could I pay 1000 and he would invest the rest in me. So thought if he would invest that much money i believed it was legit and i would get my money back when i got casted for shootings.
This was a month ago. Never heard from them since. Has anyone reported them for scamming people like this?

How much did you pay? Is there a way to report them so they cant do this anymore and maybe get the money back?

Hi anyone who has been involved with xenon models they are a SCAM!!!
I have briefly read this thread and the same exact thing has happened to me everyone who has had this happen to them can contact me. i I think we should all work together and take this company down as they are just taking money from people and telling them lies I have also put a story forward to watchdog and I advise all of you do this to make them known and hopefully get them reported what they are doing to these young people is not nice.

This so the link to send a story to watchdog

Students, famililes and parents. Do not join xenon models. This is a scam that starts at the studio opposite hsbc in market place. They are a little black door with no number that has beefed up security from people wanting their money back. Chelsea singh does NOT run xenon models neither does Mike or daniel. The company is managed and run by no other than William Richard Kerswell who can be found on companies house as a director and Zack who has so many aliases Ali ngyuen or something or the other. He is an american bengali that comes from california. PLEASE CHECK out this https://youtu.be/DP_RHtk3j-M. Rogue traders modelling companies 2019 on youtube. William Richard Kerswill a former recovering drug addict is the notorious El Irvings understudy who scammed millions out of portofolios. 8k packages, 5k packages 3k packages the list goes on. U will get beautiful photos but not the bs that is promised by zack who is the viewer. A viewer is someone that speaks to you after your shoot. But we will call him mr california. Mr california promises contracts by coach, armani, marks and spencer. H and M just to name a few in order so you can pay 8k,5k,3k for packages. When it gets to hot he does not view and teaches other people how to do it. Saturday and sunday are the busiest day at the studio. So if you are owed money go to the studio on a friday,saturday and sunday. Xenon models does not exist on companies house as they use an alias which I will not highlight . He can be found on companies house. He has possibly changed it. We will be dedicating a site with photos of the most wanted scammers in the modelling industry stay tuned. Please take photos discreetly if u do decide to go and we will send you an email address of which to post.
