Will, there's no shortage of nude male models in Amsterdam. Most do adult. Why would they fly someone over from the States.

As Ken said, it's probably a scam, not spam.  They're probably going to send you a fake check that looks like a real check for more than the amount promised, and tell you to send the overage to a photographer or makeup artist via Western Union or MoneyGram.  After you wire the money, your bank will call you to tell you that the check is no good.  It's called a Nigerian 419 scam.
