I'm slightly disturbed that we apparently need to "warn" each other about the specific names the scammers are using. That is ALWAYS going to change, because the name is made up and irrelevant.

I'm glad you're googling when you get these but learn to identify the signs of a scam and not rely on whether someone has already posted a thread about "so and so." No legit company emails strangers in other countries for job offers with a high fixed price and payment in advance!

...huh?

Dude, I hate to break it to you but... this is 100% a scam. Why would a model have to forward money along to a third party? It makes absolutely no sense. Stop communicating with them.

I got an email from a guy. Stating that he works for Chanel , Inc. and that they want me to come and shoot for them. Following , if they like the way I pose I could be signing a year contract. Most importantly I was told that I would be sent a check for about two grand , to take out three hundred for traveling fees and to send the rest to the make up artist. I was told in detail instructions about now until leading up to that day. Arrangements as far as when to be there and ready , things to do before the shoot , where exactly to go. I was basically given a really persuasive full detailed description of how this was going to happen. It isn't for another couple weeks and I want to know if it sounds like a scam.

They addressed me by my first name. Explained the payment process of how they do for the hour. They explained I wouldn't have to pay , also papers I would have to print & sign to take with me the day of the shoot. Told to get mani & pedi. It sounds extremely legit and I am more than excited. But I'm new to this, and I don't want to fall into anything dangerous.

This is a scam.  Please go to your My Stuff page and click the graphic that says "Avoid scams!" to learn how to recognize them.  Please alert the moderators via the help tab at the top of the page if you receive scam messages via MM.

didn't read half of the replies honestly, but google is your friend. Copy and paste the e-mail that you get along with the word scam into google and usually you will find out if it is a scam or not. I think that there was a list somewhere here on MM that someone started of running scams too if I recall. Just because something is not on a list though doesn't mean its not a scam. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. check references and such. good luck

I think I received one today! AND I saw the casting for this on MM. Heres the email:

My client wants to update her Catalog with her new skin care products.I am interested in you for the shooting. The responses have really reduced so we have the number of models we want.Having closely revised your emails and pictures you are one of the select few.

The Shoot is staring on the 4th - 5th of May and its going to be lasting for 2 days(the rest dates will be made known after then ).The shoot will be all simple and outdoor.Light and moderate make up will be the theme here but the team will still love to see your creativity.

Security deposit/Logistic funds will be sent to you and you would get 400 from the payment and remit the rest for the studio rental fee.Please provide the following details

Full Name -
Address -
City -
State -
Zipcode -
Cell phone no -

This is needed so that funds for the studio can be balanced and the photographers would be able to start setting up.You need to really be ready as we are bringing experienced photographers from Greece and Paris to come take the shots .

There is also a chance of you getting a permanent deal with the client to be on all her products.Just a few models that perform exceptionally will be able to get the deal.

Product Name : Scentia

Product type

1. Fruitamin Hydro-boost
Moisturiser - 125mL

2. Fruitamin Pore Firming
Skin Care Set
3..Plantic Life Defence
Exfoliating
Milk Cleanser- 125mL

4.Plantic Repairing
Skin Care Set

5.Body Beauty
Orange Marmalade
Bath Salt

Products are being relaunched in the united states and Canada

Sounds a lot like the emails post from above. Also coming from a David last name was different though. AND was a casting on model mayhem too! Thought I'd share this tidbit smile

I'm amazed that people continue to fall for this old, old scam. 

I'm quite certain that models post in these threads and rarely come back to read the responses.

When the check bounces and your bank wants you to make good on the money that you forwarded, then you WILL be paying out of your own pocket.

OMG!!!!.... I think I got this same e-mail but I thought it was too good to be true. I replied asking a ton of questions but never got a reply. Now I know why.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee but am from Birmingham, Alabama so I was skeptical about this message that is really similar!:

Mrs Londa

I Googled her name, the company, even her daughter's name and pulled up nothing! I have been corresponding and got this message:

Hi Shuntricia Chery  thanks for replying my message promptly,and your
picture view of your works on model mayhem is really impressive and we
the Londa family believe you would give our daughter the (Bride) an
outstanding appearance on her most happiest day her wedding day.

Trisha my daughter is really dear to my heart and this is the first
wedding of its kind in the Londa's family so we believe you would use
your professionalism and give us your best makeup looks touch for the
bride on the ceremony day.Now below is some details of the wedding
ceremony.

CEREMONY DETAILS.

DATE........(23rd of Dec 2013)
CHURCH SERVICE TIME........(10am-12pm)
ENGAGEMENT AND RECEPTION TIME......(1pm-3pm)
CHURCH SERVICE VENUE.......(Briarwood Presbyterian Church 2200 Briarwood Way,
Birmingham, AL 35243)
ENGAGEMENT VENUE.......(Our home Garden) 234 Acton Rd, Birmingham, AL 35243,
EXPECTED GUEST NUMBER FOR RECEPTION.....(150 people)
MAKEUP SERVICE TO BE RENDERED......(Just for the Bride)

Now Shuntricia Chery you will be expected to make my daughter up for
the church service,church service which would involve the Priest
blessings to the couples and exchange of marriage vows from both Bride
and Bride groom,and then make her up for the engagement party which
would hold at our home garden in Alabama.As soon as as you are done
with the makeup for my daughter the (Bride) after the engagement party
the balance fees of $300 would be paid to you by me for your balance
fees of the makeup services being rendered by you.

Shuntricia Chery  like i earlier said in my previous email to you i
would make arrangements through my travel agent for your Flight ticket
and hotel accommodation to Alabama,you would be expected to be in
Alabama a day before the wedding ceremony Sunday 23rd of Dec 2013 so
you can get to meet with my daughter and further discuss on any extra
touch she might want to add to her makeup looks,but generally my
daughter likes to keep it simple and smart.I have attached a copy of
my daughters picture (Bride) so you see what she looks like,and you
can have an idea of what makeup looks would best go with her looks

Shuntricia Chery the date of the wedding is really close and i dont
want any sort of delays,so i would instruct my Lawyer Mr Carey
Patterson to issue out a check to you for your upfront payment ($300).
So Shuntricia Chery.i would need you to email me back asap with the
following details below.

Full Names............
Home Address.............
Phone number...............

Email me this details asap so i can have them forwarded to my Lawyer
Mr Carey Patterson in order to avoid delay thanks and need to hear
from you asap thank you have a wonderful day.

Kind Regards
Mrs Londa

This is the picture of her "daughter and fiance" of whom's makeup I am supposed to be doing! The home address is bogus, I googled the lawyer's name and pulled up nothing. I have lived in Birmingham most of my life so to know someone wants to fly me 200 miles from nashville is too much when it only takes 2.5-3 hours to drive! And although I know I am talented, I can be honest to say that I don't have enough pictures for her to pull me out of hundreds of people with stronger pages! I am glad that you all have posted this so that I can confirm that this is a scam! SMH it is sad that people do this!
