If they're gone after you've received such a message it's almost guaranteed that they were removed from MM.
In order to have an MM account, magazine publishers have to be specially vetted (meaning they have to prove that they've got some sort of publication and are the real people behind it), and the type of account will be shown under their avatar (if it says model, photographer, or anything else they have NOT been approved as a publication and are most likely scammers).
Let me explain. There are 10 zillion models out there and 300,000 or so here on MM, (taking a guess of course). You're not special
Anyone who swears they can get a model into any magazine is already charging their client $2000 a day and isn't scouting his / her own models.
Very very very rarely will a big time photographer even speak to the model prior to the shoot let alone ask them to work together. The magazine has a person or people to do that fior them. The photographer just shows up on the set and does what they've asked of him /her

You need to be realistic. Your profile says you have "some experience". This makes you a target of scammers because they hope you won't recognize a scam. The reality is that models that don't have a lot of experience are not going to be randomly picked on Model Mayhem for any type of significant work.
