Western union scams on dating sites
When the telemarketers are done with you, your info gets sold to the next company and the routine starts again.
Some internet marketers go as far as responding to your inquiry with a message that “you are perfect” or “will send the audition details”, but first… This is a different type of scam and not that obvious to most.
The sales pitch is honed to make you feel special and chosen. Real castings have specific needs (with the exception of extras / background).
that have a interest, such as acting or modeling, that they can later exploit by way of email spam, telemarketing, etc.
After you answer a “fake” casting (much of craigslist was fake when I tested it), you will begin getting offers through email and sales pitches from telemarketers, all aimed at getting you to sign up for some service.
Beware of anything that asks for lingerie, topless, etc. Use your imagination on what someone will do with those.
Real casting directors will want head shots, full body shot(clothed) and measurements.
Beware of “no experience necessary.” While some casting calls for kids and background actors do not require experience, most principal roles require both. Ads that read like “models and actors needed for ‘put in any large brand here’ pay is 00 daily and job is 4 to 5 days….” Beware of ads that quote union rates such as 2 a day without mention of union.
