How to Avoid Modeling Red Flags – Never Accept a Check for an Audition

In the modeling industry, there are many red flags that aspiring models and actors need to look out for. A common red flag, one of the oldest in the books, is a “photographer” sending a check, usually for $5,000 for a job before you booked or even auditioned for anything in person.
They will then ask you to cash it for them at your bank, and send them the money. Only then do you find out it was a fake check and you are left with the overdraft balance.
Over the past years, this has become harder and harder to spot because the scammer is stealing names of legitimate industry professionals. They can now, hijack email domains to make you think you are speaking with the real deal.
To avoid this common scam remember this; NEVER accept a check before you completed the job. It often takes weeks to get paid from an audition.
NEVER speak to these people on WhatsApp, or use apps to transfer money. It is common sense, but many newer inexperienced models can fall for it. As a talent, you should always due your homework, however many often do not until it is too late.
