I want to know if this is a scam cos I got a call from identity management modelling agency I was told I needed to make a deposit of 75 pounds and it will be refunded the day I come for my assessment they gave a reason that most participants don't turn up and that's their investment
Really confused on this can someone help

If they are asking for any money at all from you whether it is a deposit or for your pics then it is a scam.
They make their money from people like yourself paying for their photos to be taken.

What a legitimate model agency does it takes a percentage of the models earnings, usually around 15%. This means they have to actually get their models paid work in order to make their money.

I have been a victim of this. They don't let you in without an appointment
