Recently I received an email from HELLO MAGAZINE offering me a gig because they saw my profile on MM. They want to send me a check and then want me to forward part of the check to a wardrobe/stylist. Sounds like a scam. Anyone else receive this? R-

anything asking you to cash a check then forward part of it to somone else is a scam. what the do is send you a check for lets say $1000 and tell you they are paying you $500 then send the other $500 in a money order to the MUA or whatever. once the check you cashed bouces you pay back the $1000 and they have $500. the do this on craigslist too when people sell stuff. the buyer sends them a check for too much and ask for the rest back in a money order happened to my friend.

Think about it this way:

Would any legit company just "trust you" with a real check for a couple grand, to "do the right thing" and forward along the rest of the cash to a MUA, when you're only supposed to get a few hundred out of it?

If it is the mag I think they are trying to pass off as, then they are a celeb gossip mag that would not be approaching you anyway. Also if they are doing a fshion spread they will only go through agencies and big ones at that.
A client never pays before a job is done also.

SCAM anytime they send a check and ask for it to be forwarded to pay studio or some expense......it's always a SCAM, also if the contacted you VIA MM, take you email address off the profile, that's what scammers look for !

Yes. It's a scam.

There are too many scam related resource pages on the net to list them all. Here are a few of the more popular ones that provide the best information. Read them and educate yourself on how the industry works. Doing that will teach you how to instantly recognize common modeling scams, avoid receiving scam offers and handle the ones that do find their way to your inbox.

They are now using he name Rosemary Sarpong.  Still offering to send you a check and you deduct 300.00 and forward the remainder to the wardrobe stylist.  I received my email today and it was actually sent to another email address and when I replied and told them they apologized for the mistake and said it was intended for me.

HAHA...I get these from time to time.  I love to combat ignorance with more ignorance.

If you want to have some fun, reply to them with the most idiotic non-native-English you can think of and see how they respond.

I just sent this:

"Yes it seems to my attention that I am probably interested in offers presented in such a way as to enrich my place on the global photography scene.
Many well wishes to you and greetings upon our initial meeting."

That should keep them guessing for a while.

I just received an offer filled with grammar errors from someone saying they are really thrilled with my photography work. The name this guy is using is "Garry Weaver." (Garry is actually spelled with 2 "r's") and he wanted me to forward my information over to someone named Katrina White. Katrina's email address is Katrina.white42@yahoo.com. I tried contacting the magazine and asking if these people work for them but I have not gotten a response back. It wasn't until I did a google search under "Hello Magazine scams" that I found out about this one. I have not sent them any information yet, but I will send them the link to this scam article. Obviously if they are contacting me then they will contact others. so I hope this will help those who receive suspicious email regarding modeling work. If you would like to contact me about it you can do so. I am Brett Jolly and I hope that you all have a great day.

The only 2 clues you would need in this case. Major clients like HELLO do NOT scout models and photographers on Model Mayhem. Second, If your Major Magazine job offer email you are sending your address, social security number and wifes bra size to is Hotmail.com or yahoo.com or gmail.com, this should be enough for your common sense to kick in.

If a major magazine wants you to shoot for them, they'll call your agent, not send you a form email.
