My close friend and her mother were approached by a "scout" at the Queens Center Mall a few months ago. I was appalled to hear that this company charged 700 plus dollars for pictures to be taken of her at their office. They charged $45 for the CD of the pictures. Then they talked her mother into signing a vauge contract--and she is not from this country and did fully understand that you have ONLY 3 DAYS to cancel it and only through certified mail and some other tricky way--instead of giving a simple refund in 30-60 days.This company then called her and offered a second contract and asked for more money to UPGRADE for 4 more years!!!!!
This cost over $1000 dollars. Then they called her about a job for MACY'S saying she was selected out of all the other kids. The job was then cancelled and she never worked ONE SINGLE DAY--This is the
list of excuses: " MACY'S has changed the date of the shoot (May 27)", "The Director/Manager '''JAMES" was not available", "James is in the hospital", "Oh the moved company and he's not around". --Wait, how does the company moving have anything to do with him being available???

I will report them--contact the Consumer Af'fairs bureau and expose them for their
