HYPE DIGITAL STUDIO - SCAMMMMM!!!!!!
FULL ADDRESS BELOW
Hype Digital London - 57 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 7PN

After submitting my picture online, I immediately get an email of successful application then a call from an strange face lady with horrible wig and some weird accent called Henna Bhudia asking for £50 refundable deposit which I paid to my embarrassment for the trial shoot which promised will have make up artists and professional photographers..lol. Then here I arrive at the scene of the photoshoot where the make-up artists turned out to be playing the role of receptionist too .LOL. After the photo shoot the WEIRD Turkish lady called Henna Bhudia (SENIOR MODELLING CONSULTANT 🤣) takes me to his office breaking the news of how amazing the pictures came out and how amazing of a model I am. Selling dreams of big companies like ASOS and all she asks me for money to make portfolio (silver £1500, gold £1700 and platinum £1800). The real agencies would never ask for money first so please avoid wasting your time.

HYPE DIGITAL 57 GREAT TITCHFIELD STREET!!ITS A SCAM PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY!!!!After promising guaranteed work while having the conversation after my shoot I pay £650 and they leave me with links of agencies which also require more money in order to help me get work. To them it’s just money money money they don’t care about your modelling career and don’t help you with it further please DO NOT sign those papers and let them get away with it! I will be taking further action as they said the money is non refundable and the women from head office starts to get funny with me down the phone and being rude because I asked for my money back. Trust me babe you’ll be seeing me again.

Well if you agreed to pay that for a portfolio and they provided it...you probably owe the money? did they specifically guarantee work and tie that to the payment?

Well,they said that some agencies will contact me after few weeks giving me a job.What happened was,some ppl contacted me but nobody invited me for any castings and all they wanted me to do is to pay for fees(agencies upfront fees)My portfolio is only digital and z card too.

That kind of sounds like they've covered themselves, it's still obv a scam, but I think you'd need to try harder to get out of it, as so far they sound in the right officially.
