Numerous calls have been received by us from parents of children, teenagers and even adults who have answered newspaper or free magazine advertisements or even yellow pages adverts by Agencies asking for models, actors and film extra’s of all ages and all sizes to apply by post.
More often than not the agency is located a long way away from the local press area they are advertising in.
In the case of by post scams people wanting to apply answer the advert then they have then been asked to pay money up front in order to join that agency. Cases have varied from £250 to £7000 stated as being an administration fee, or marketing fee with a Modelling Portfolio.
PLEASE DO NOT PAY SUCH COSTS AS THEY WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BE A SCAM AGENCY.
Genuine Reputable Agencies will only charge a Small Website/Admin Fee to cover there Annual fee this is usually in the region of £50-£100.
Avoid at all costs as you'll get sucked into paying around £250-£1000 even more and the agencies in question will accept everyone so you will buy your portfolio. These Agencies will not get you work.
