Not good to sell lists. I am sure as a sideline, they probably sell info and mail lists.

They send you a check for $3000.00 or some large amount and tell you to deposit it and keep $500 upfront as agreed. Remember they are in a hurry so they want you to forward the balance to the address they gave you ASAP. Of course you don't have time to wait for their check to clear and you send them $2500 from your account expecting their check will clear and you will be back to your original balance plus $500.
Of course their check bounces, your bank hits you with the fees and you are out $2500, this is an old trick which works due to the dollar signs in your eyes for the $500. They use this in other settings not related to modeling. New models are very vulnerable to this as they are excited to get a paying gig and want it to be real. It's easy to get scammed when your ego blinds you to reality
