As a model or actor, the hardest part is finding out the best sources to start with. If you find a casting call, GREAT! However spotting tips like these can save you from falling for fraudulent scouters online.
Here are 3 tips to Follow:
1.) Deposits Over the Phone
Brands and companies do not require a model or actor to send a deposit over the phone. In fact, most would meet you in person to see what you really look like. Only deal with people you can see!
2.) Expensive Photo Shoots
Photographs are always required however, they shouldn’t cost more than a few hundred bucks. If it seems too good to be true, it is.
3.) Mailing you a Check
If someone is claiming to book you for a job and they are going to pay you (even though you never met them) this is NOT real. Here is an example:
“YOU WILL NOT ONLY RECEIVE A CERTIFIED PAYCHECK OF but also with an ADDITIONAL amount that you will use to pay for your wardrobes bills which you will forward to the designer in charge of your Wardrobe after processing the check. The payment for your wardrobe and clothing measurements has to be forwarded to the designer by you, reason being that, the payment for your wardrobe have to be made or billed to your name/info as requested and acceptable business terms by the designer to ensure a tallied customization and label to be printed on your costumes.“
