    I found the job on myspace.com jobs. www.foractivewear.com is the only site she'd give me for proof it's rela and it doesn't have any contacts, logos, nor information about modelling.

    Professional Super Model Agreement



    Congratulations Michelle and Parents on your selection as a Model for Worldwide, of 13010 Morris Road , Regus Building One, 6th Floor, Alpharetta , Georgia 30004



    Recruiter : Tina Wyatt
    Yahoo IM : tina.wyatt
    Phone # : (724) 763-2404



    Phone calls are available to talk directly to your modeling recruiter upon request, and MUST be of a matter which cannot be easily discussed through email or IM. Please let me know when you would like to call so I can be available.

    This is a Non-Exclusive Agreement in which model may model for other companies.

    Model will gain Experience, Exposure and Earnings guaranteed to be published on at least 52 different and unique professional Catalog Ads featured in over 1,000 Top Cities from around the globe in various city news locations. This will give the model 52 print credits which will be priceless to show experience on a model's resume. A model is not penalized for not doing all 52 assignments.

    Model will get paid weekly for doing weekly modeling assignments posing for Catalog Ads to help promote activewear and affiliates stores such as: Target™, Walmart™, Macys™ to name a few. Model is guaranteed to model for 52 weekly modeling print assignments. Model can do as little or as many of the 52 Modeling Assignments that they prefer.

    Model will have his/her catalog ad sites promoted in the top Modeling Magazine in the world, Supermodels UNLIMITED Magazine™ (We encourage you to visit their site at: supermodelsunlimited.com) The Magazine is available at: Newstands, Amazon.com, major bookstores including B. Dalton, Borders, Books-A-Million and Barnes and Noble, college bookstores and libraries, modeling agencies and schools, boutiques and salons, apparel markets, major fashion events, including Fashion Week in Los Angeles and New York, modeling and talent competitions, bridal and pageant stores, dance and photographer studios and more.

    Model is paid through Paypal weekly. Model earns Gross Revenue Shares (Royalties) of a share of the 85% of the profit generated by all catalog ads. This can range from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars per week for a minimal of one hour per week of modeling. Models are also paid 85% of the profit from their individual catalog fashion ads.





    She would not give me A

    All Assignments are conducted right in each model's hometown area at their convenience. Model may attend the weekly shoots in Alpharetta , Ga. , or Worldwide will provide a digital camera for the model to use at their own location. These are all freelance outdoor type shots that any digital camera will be professional as images can be erased and re shot easily. These are not glamour type shots and no professional photographer is required. There is no charge for the camera nor photo shoots.

    Throughout the course of the 52 week assignments, models will receive $289.00 Retail Value of fashions/fashion accessories to model and keep. These can be from our catalog of active wear and can include Old Navy and Gap clothes.

    Models must pay a one time security deposit of $289.00 made payable by Check or Money Order to Worldwide. Or, a model may pay the security deposit by any major credit card at: http://www.shop.iBureau.biz If model can not pay the $289.00 security deposit in full right away, model may make a first payment of $50.00 to reserve position with the balance paid within 30 days or auto debited if not paid. Model agrees that there are no refunds except through our Money Back Guarantee Policy which states: "Model has guaranteed to model a minimum of (12) assignments one per month for one full year for Worldwide by showing a commitment of $289.00 Security Deposit which is guaranteed paid back through the Monthly Gross Revenue Share stated above only. Any bad checks, charge backs will be considered theft and subject to lawsuit after signing this agreement." Model has (5) days to sign or position will be forfeited. (Model has been guaranteed (52) weekly assignments with (52) weeks of earnings, but has to do a minimum of one per month or forfeit security deposit. This security deposit also protects Worldwide from models receiving fashions and digital camera to model and then stealing them.)

    Note: Models can not lose their $289.00 Security Deposit. It is not a fee. It is guaranteed to be returned to model through the Gross Revenue Share Plan above. Models are guaranteed earnings every week they work no matter how many sales occur from their individual catalog ads.

    Please PRINT and Sign your Signature and return the two pages of the contract within (5) days from receipt. You MUST copy and paste and E-mail to us at: tina.wyatt@ yahoo.com and Fax to: 678-827-0621

    Do your research...contact reputable modeling agencies and ask questions! Also, I believe any agency asking for money up front is a good sign of a scam. If they were serious about representing you, they would pay , at first anyway. I am relieved to hear you are being cautious...stay that way!
    Best wishes and the best of luck to you!

    Bingo. I'd stay far away. They prey on people who want to get into the industry bad enough that they won't ask questions. I'm glad you did.

    If you feel froggy, you can report them to the Federal Trade Commission. They like to make sure that things like this don't happen and people reporting events like this help them immensely.

    Yep. This is what you would call a tell tale sign...(google 'model agency scam')

    (btw: she's using a yahoo-account. I don't think any professional would ever use that).

    Paying someone for the privilege of working for them seems like a bad idea to me. Sounds to me like you send them $300 and if they use you, you might get some of it back.

    One of the biggest rules of thumb in determining a scam.....if you have to pay money to get something 'free' or if you have to pay for a job that's offered...it's a scam.

    Kinda like the phone calls I get telling me I've qualified for a US Grant, all I have to do is pay a $300 fee first.

    Absolutley a scam, like Puscas pointed out, what kind of professional would have their primary contact methods through Yahoo Mail and Yahoo IM? A true pro wouldn't have these and probably wouldn't use Myspace for advertising.
