I’ve been contacted by a company called south model management and am worried about whether they are legit or not. if anyone has had an experience with them i was wondering if i can trust them or not. they told me to go to whitechapel studios on 23 hessel road but it doesn’t look like a studio when i look online. i just don’t know whether to go to the shoot or whether it’s too risky

How did they contact you? Have you tried searching them online? Never go alone.

This thread mentions the exact same address, so almost certainly a scam:

I wouldn't risk your safety. Try applying to more legitimate and known agencies/ organisations. That way you'll never be in danger.

If they sent you an unsolicited email out of the blue and are operating out of the same address that scammers were using within the last 6 months, I would absolutely not go.

Agree with the above OP - It’s mostly likely a scam, not least because of the questionable location...

Company house has no companies registered at that address from what I can see, the company name does not show any legitimate companies. If they are legitimate, they are not registered which rings alarm bells.
