I'm putting in a big time complaint to(hottestmodelsunlimited)I'm gonna give you my experience...first off we were told to sit out by the airport to wait for a shuttle to pick us(models) up as a group, that didn't happen, I ended up paying 32USD for the shuttle, then got dropped off in this foreign country to find the ferry t Cozumel for myself...
First off I wanna tell you, I have been in the business in Europe, NYC, so this is not new to me, I only went because she(Karen Slade)sent me an email that she'd let me stay at the resort for free, she paid which I did, (I was the only one who didn't pay for the hotel(so she said but that was a lie)...but then the payments came, there was this competition fee of ($45+tax ) then a couple weeks later I had to pay an International tax of $625 (which doesn't exist) but she gave me a "deal" if I paid that week I paid $500 someone still needs to explain this International Sales Tax to me by the way if you want to get in another category you had to pay another $50!! Needless to say I wasn't giving up any more money to her company, but sadly other models did.
But why I'm writing this is, this needs to stop with KAREN SLADE, she promised us the first night for the meet and greet we'd get fantastic pictures, we got 3 pictures, and if you wanna have a complete photo shoot you would have to pay ANOTHER $300. The Photo shoot was a JOKE, the photographer kept everyone in the same area by the pool so every one has the same pictures.huh? She also promised all these clients that were going to be there, but then told us the night of the competition they wouldn't be able to make it!!! The biggest joke of this trip was the night of the judges that were gonna determine who won categories, the judges were her, her husband, the photographer and THE FRONT DESK MANAGER at the hotel ! NO PROFESSIONAL AGENTS NOT ONE! that's just sad.
So what I want is a COMPLETE REFUND for this, All the models had to pay $50/ category, had to pay International sales tax that was never explained why that was needed ($600) and then not a mention how much others had to pay just to get to the resort($75+) I was fortunate enough that my hotel was paid for, but not really why I'm writing this long message. I got to know all these great people in the competition, and feel as if they were taking advantage of, thy all spent about $2000 including airfare. SHE PREYED ON THESE GREAT PEOPLE because she knows how bad these models wanna advance their careers, I figured out it was a SCAM in the meeting we had at the resort where she repeated herself over and over and told us "no clients will be here tonight" and I don't want anyone else hurt by this scam competition in the future... I really hop their will be a refund of some sort, because what we went out there for was definitely not met!!!
