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

Very unlikely that the company involved will do refunds.

If you paid via card and not get what you expected to receive, contact your card issuer (bank) and initiate a chargeback.

Rude, disappointing and unprofessional PLEASE BE WAREThis agency is my worst experience in this industry. I signed with them in September 2019 after I had a very long talk with their modelling trainer Meni who is very delicate and sweet. He assured the following:1- I implied limitation like i don't want to do bikini or lingerie or any jobs entail revealing and he said all fine. Models are not forced to do what they don't prefer. Now they came back when i asked for refund with disgrace tone of

These outfits change their name frequently to avoid bad rep. Changing address is harder for obvious reasons.

Personally I would cancel now but otherwise just treat it with a very high degree of scepticsm.

i think its a scam, when you’re in the building its very run down, the ‘studio’ where they take the photos is a wall with stands to give it some privacy, the only room that looks presentable is the room you enter after the photos which makes you oay an upfront payment of £250 for the pictures for your portfolio and another £250 for a ‘training course’ which i was told wasnt even necessary yet she originally said it was.

You may get some photos, but whether they will be worth what you pay is another matter. They will also likely push hard on upselling you on some studio package.

If you go, I’d approach it with a lot of caution.

It's possible but they will ask you to exhaust all options with the merchant, (IE. the photo studio), first:
