Im really not sure about this one....It seems to have a valid email and the email does seem professional and everything...but it gets me with wiring money to someone else...It seems a little too good to be true..so figured i would throw it out there and see what you guys think...Here is the exact email:

"

JOB DETAILS:
Outfit  will be provided by our wardrobe stylist on the day of the shooting and the shoot is just for 2 days and you will be paid $1100 for the whole project, the Job is Urgent so you are to get back to us as soon as possible so that we can arrange on how to get you the part payment, meet the stylists and other crew members. You would be paid the initial payment of $400 to guarantee your participation in the shoot, as part of our working policy and ethics of our company, we give part payment to any client before we proceed with any job and balance immediately after the work.As I told you earlier this project is very urgent we will be taking care of your payment, accommodation and other expenses.

This is the key right there. It's asking you to receive money then send it to someone else...oh it's total spam and a scam. Did you get that in a PM or your personal email. If it's on MM I'd report it.

It's a scam. www.newmodels.com has a section or two on common internet modeling scams. Because you got it thru your MM account, you should also report it here www.ripoffreport.com

Scam.

You will be out the 400 when the check they send you turns out bad in a couple weeks.
