The Question Club
So. I've got a real question. Well, all questions are real... but this one is a big deal to me.
I got a message on my MySpace (yeah, I've got one...) from some lady claiming to be a talent scout for models/actors. I figured it was a scam of some sort, and didn't really think anything of it. But now I'm wondering if it cooould possibly be real. I mean, I highly doubt it, but who knows, right? Anywho, here's the message, and whatnot.
After seeing your profile and pictures all I could say was wow. I am new to the site and just searching on here to make new friends and always on the look out for new talent. When I saw your profile, I just had to write and say hello.
Have you ever done any modeling or acting? If not, why?!?!? You have great facial features and I think you would do well in print or commercials among others.
My name is Ashley Hannan and I am a National Talent Scout with TooSpoiled, one of the fastest growing online talent marketing communities. This month alone we have had over 1,700,000 castings, auditions and entertainment job opportunities. I believe you have the look that a lot of our clients are looking for.
If you want to break into the industry, I'd like to give you a shot. I am very good at what I do and wouldn't be wasting your time or mine if I didn't think you would do well. I would like you to go to our site to check us out and get enrolled (www.toospoiled.com). Now this is by invitation only, so, you will need my scout ID code# ________ in order to enroll. If you have already done any modeling or acting you are going to love us. Please feel free to email me at [email address] with any questions. In this business it's not about who you know, but rather, who knows and sees you!
I look forward to getting you in front of thousands of potential clients. Congratulations and good luck.
Ashley Hannan, NTS
She tried to add me as a friend too, which I've yet to accept or decline. it sucks, because I personally think this is a fake, and I've always wanted to get into modeling. Like... since I was in 6th grade or so. I haven't gone to the site yet, as I'm not sure what to think of this.
1. Do you know of this site?
2. Does this seem legit at ALL?
3. Should I even bother with it?
4. Are there any legit modeling sites out there that I should know about?
I would really appreciate some feedback.
EDIT: Yeah... not even a modeling site. Figures.
