Has anyone done business with Pro Scouts? They're having an "open casting" here and one of my friends/models is planning on attending.

I've looked at their website, and I get the feeling that they're just a large scale scam agency.

Anyone work with or for them?

www.proscout.com

Any info would be appreciated thanks.

I called their office and if they like your look after the interview, they charge 695.00 to "be seen by 30-50 agencies in one weekend"

Paying money upfront? That alone should tell you and hopefully you tell your model friend that this is a dead giveaway sign of scam. No legitimate land based agency employs this procedure. Hope she listens to you.

um tell her NO WAY!! STEER CLEAR!

I went to one of those and then they "chose me to go to Chicago" and then they told me in order to go to chicago that i would have to pay them $600 just to fly the agents from the big agencies to meet them and so forth.. yeah for some it ends up being a dream come true... but uh... it only makes sense when you think ... these agencies have all the money in the world... why would they be telling ME that i need to pay $600 just for them to fly there... it was so retarded!!!

also.. you have to pay for your trip and hotel and food and so forth... so yeah...

HUGE SCAM!!

Thank you all for your input, Beth did not attend the meeting/interview.

I wanted to attend myself and pretend to be a model and ask a lot of pointed questions during the process, but decided to go watch the Tigers game instead.

I hope that not too many local girls fell prey to this.
