So after charging your niece $1600, they took pictures of her and are going to put her pictures on the internet??? Or are they paying her 1600??? I'm a little confused.

If they are charging her...tell her to run away...FAST!

that's the only word you need to know. i wouldn't bother going to see these people, and neither should your neice. she got scammed for 800 bucks. tell her to cut her losses and run.

So let me get this straight. She paid 800 and has no prints, proofs, or pictures yet?

I don't understand the entire story. Was this a modeling scam or just a portrait scam? Based on all ethics of business operations, this totally smells unethical.

Based on what you say, run and run fast. Who is the company industry studio?

OK, she was ripped of for 800 bucks, for God's sake, tell her to cut her losses and run away. NEVER, as in NOT EVER, deal with anyone who approaches her in a mall and wants money.

Send her to Atlanta and I'll get photos of her on the net for nothing!

Ummmmm, smells pretty bad. I think she should run fast and hard, and take this as a learning experience, too bad it cost her so much money.

By any chance was it in Menlo Park Mall? They approach EVERYONE with no particulars in mind. Its a scam, IMO. I was walking past their booth with my son who wasn't in any condition I would think a 20 year old would be able to scout him out as the "next model to be discovered". Its a #s thing. If they ask enough people, someone will ultimately say yes.
