So basically I applied to two modelling agencies and it appears that they replied and I even spoke to the person who sent me a mail over the phone .He asked a few questions about me and now he requires to speak to my parents.But the problem here is that I can’t find any website related to the name ‘Polo models’(that’s where the email came from).How do I make sure if it’s a scam or not?

If they are asking for any money from you to have pics taken then it's a scam

Definitely looks like a scam, a legitimate agency would never ask for money from you they make their money by taking a cut from the model jobs they get their client not from asking their clients for money.

Look them up on the Companies House website. Legit organisations will have an address, names of directors and the date formed.
