Scam. The email address says it all. It would not be a yahoo account.
This is probably a Nigerian scam. They send you $700 to start. You forward $200 to the MUA. Your check for $700 bounces and you have lost $200.

Not one major company will ever contact you here on MM. They go straight to their contacts at the big modeling agencies. You might get contacted here by a member here who is a clothing designer, that is cool, but the big name agencies don't waste their time trolling the ports on MM.
