Hey guys!

I'm Nick and a new model to the site as of yesterday.  Received this e-mail and looks like spam to me, but just checking in case I'm missing an opportunity.  The email states:

Hey,
How was your night? Fine i guess. I went through your profile on www.modelmayhem.com, and i am pleased to inform you that you have been invited to participate in an upcoming photo shoot organized by The Herald Fashion Magazine for the professional photo shoot. No nudity, fetish, bondage and other adult content stuff. Kindly get back to me if you are interested.

Thanks for your time.

Jacob Smith

The name looks fake and I just get a weird vibe as it's my second day here.  Let me know what you think.  Also should I have my personal e-mail on my profile or not.  I read that I shouldn't, but I thank I have a good handle at recognizing spams.  So should people contact me through my personal e-mail or direct messaging on here.

Thoughts?

Thanks for your help and welcoming me into your community.

Yours,  Nick

Yes it is probably spam, take your email off your profile, the spammers look for new models with email address.

Read the newbie model bit.

I received this as well...I am emailing back and for with an "agent" and he actually did send me a check for 2,667 dollars...I am supposed to buy a plane ticket, send the rest to a "wardrobe personal" and head to fucking florida. First off..a high fassioned magazine does not search for newbie talent on MM and neither do their agents...secondly a legit modeling shoot would never send you that kind of cash UPFRONT without having you sign something, or having you DO ANYTHING at all. Well I know this now...so what do I do with this almost-3 thousand dollar-check? I think i'll rent out a suit in Vegas and have a party...drinks anyone?

I know someone who fell for a similar scam (not modeling related).  Long story short, they received a check for nearly $2,000 with instructions that they were to keep half and forward the other half to someone else.  They deposited the check into their checking account and then wrote and mailed a personal check to the other party.  3 days later they were notified by their bank the check they had deposited had bounced (this is why many banks had a "funds availability policy" that says funds deposited by check may not be made available to you for up to XX days after deposit (depending on what bank the check was issued from).

As you can probably guess,  the check they had written from their personal account and sent to the other party had already been cashed so they lost nearly $1,000 to the scam.

The check will bounce.  The point here is to get you to cash it, then send money to the "wardrobe personal" and then it will bounce and you will be out whatever amount of money you sent them. 

It's crazy that the scammers go this far...

Some aren't aware of this, but banks can often pull back funds (stop payment) up to as much as two weeks, in the case of fraud.

whatever you do, dont cash the check. it will bounce, you will be stuck paying the bank back and the charges. thats how the scam works; you cash it and send them the money, and they vanish before it bounces.

Don't I repeat don't spend that money. The check is going to bounce it takes like 3 weeks for it to bounce because it seems legit but it isn't. I was involved with something like this and then send you the check have you wire it out so they get the money. It's awful.

If you do that after the warnings that were posted here, you deserve every bit of the shit that will befall you once you try to cash the check.

Hi Ashleigh,

Just found you on MM - you have a great look. I'm looking for a model for a jungle girl themed shoot late next month, here in Brooklyn. It's a paid shoot of course and transportation can be provided. If you're interested let me know and I'll send you all the details.

Is this a scam too, because I looked up his name, Thomas Brastins, and found nothing whatsoever about him or his work.
