A modelling agency called "The Booking Team" got in contact with me today located in Birmingham, are they legit or a scam?
A simillar agency called "Bookings Management" located in Macnhester and London is said to be a scam, is this the same agency? I ask this because the email that "The Booking Team" sent me contains contact numbers for London and Manchester only (no birmingham contact number)

I hope this isn't a scam but if it is i'll cancel my appointment immediately

Definitely, definitely looks like a scam. These horrible agencies seem to never give up on exploiting people out of their money.

looks like a scam for sure
seems kind of weird to me that you can't see any of their 'models'
just a few clicks through the website shows it definitely doesn't seem profesional at all

I have read that they are scams too. I got a first hand experience aswell. A person went and had similar experience that matched what I also experienced as mine. They have offices in Birmingham, Manchester, London, Nottingham... They made me spend the good part of my day waiting. And after shooting, I was told that two companies are interested in me immediately. Something talent model..contact me.But Tesla Modelling was the first to contact me and the second contacted me. Both modelling agencies again demanded for a booking fee. After three days, a third agency contacted me that they are interested in me as well. Then after talk with the Tesla models, I received series of job opening, and I signed into few. But unfortunately, I have never heard a feed back from series of roles I signed into. I feel they have a sophisticated net of collaboration in their scam scheme as they have a perfect website and different companies . They make a very good photoshoot and have flashy studios to convince people aswell.

They’ll make you do a photo shoot then tell you that you need to pay 100’s of pounds to take your portfolio home with you. They also say 1-2 agencies have interest in you but those agencies end up wanting an upfront/administration fee before any work is done. It’s a well integrated complete scam from top to bottom. You’d be better off doing research on all modelling outlets to see if they’re real. And if it seems dodgy, 99% of the time it is

Are you talking about the booking team in Chatley Street, Cheetham Hill Manchester. Because if you are, I'm going there on Monday to ask for a refund. They have not been answering any of my calls or emails. The man that I was talking to persuaded me into paying money for a portofolio? I payed 250 for 3 pictures to be sent to modeling agencies. Only to find out the next day that the agencies that contacted me were a complete scam.If your interested, I'm going to be their Monday 2.45. If you know anyone else that has been scammed by this agency tell them to come along. I know this might sound aggressive but you don't know what these people are like. They will more likely listen if alot of people show up demanding a refund. This message Is intended to be peaceful and in no way intended for wrong reasons.
