Hello! So i went for a photoshoot with some agency called model booker they selected me and then they charged me 500£ Gave me a website and created a portfolio and said agencies will contact me and they actually did but even they are asking for a subscription fee. They also promised model training which is on today at whitechapel. Something is really fishy about this. Please help! I think i was scammed 😔🥺 what should i do next if this is a scam? Go to the police? I don’t know what to do

Yeah sorry but you got scammed, this has been going on quite a while but I don’t think you can do anything to get your money back

Anything asking for money up front is pretty much guaranteed to be a scam, a real model agency would never ask for money

I can’t see it achieving much tbh; report the agency to the police and or to the trading standards agency
