Hi, I want my money back, how do I do this?

I believe I have got scammed by a agency that leads to Tesla Model. I signed up to a website and they gave me a call saying asking for a free shoot. They set me a day to bring 3 outfits and then I went in the next day. There were other people; I was waiting for a while, I was the last person then I went in for the shoot, they gave me questionnaire (assessment) and then once I had filled that, they called me, showed me the results. They then told me Icon Model and Tesla Model want to reach out to me, which I was suspicious of as it was very fast. They asked me which package I want to pick, so I picked for a silver package, this was a 'once off payment'. This payment was supposed to be for the portfolio and then they gave me my own website (it was pre made). Then, the lady said 'any company will contact you through your website'. After we paid, she kept the receipt, we didn't think much of it as it was distracted. Once I got home, I searched it up and read it was a scam.

I don’t understand why people don’t do research before doing something big.

I just want to thank you for this post. I was going to go for this free assessment but i found it weird that they didn't have a website of any kind. "Studio Bookers" was the name of the email link. I'm sorry to hear that you got scammed but if it any consolation you prevented me from doing so and for this i am eternally grateful to you. Thanks again and sorry.

I'm sorry to hear what happened. I went there today and my daughter had photos taken. The packages were offered to me and the cheapest one was 300.00 The man knocked it down to 150.00 due to the current pandemic. I didn't pay because I was unsure about what I was paying for, he was speaking fast and my daughter was making lots of noise. However he did mention a few agencies who I contacted. Studio bookers seemed a bit suspect for me.
