resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I was called from AMMS after my daughter filled out a questionnaire in the mall. They called her a week later and told her to meet up at the mall for an "INTERVIEW" FOR MODELING AND ACTING at 3 pm on that following Saturday. They told me that it was a free audition and that I would not have to pay. We showed up and to our surprise their was a stage and we were told that my 11 year old had to walk down the catwalk and also recite a line from a small skit. My daughter was not told that at all over the phone when they spoke to me and her so we just simply went home as they lied to us. Now, figure we should have realized that something was wrong, but they ended up calling me 4 days later on Tuesday and they told us to meet up that following Friday at 6:45 pm with an interview with Nick that would be one on one, no catwalk and also no one else but Nick, my daughter and myself on that interview for acting for TV commercials. I asked them again if I have to pay or if its free of service and they said ABSOLUTELY OF NO CHARGE FOR AN INTERVIEW. We got excited and of course showed up and to my belief IT WAS THE SAME CRAP AGAIN, ANOTHER CATWALK TO BE DONE AND RECITE A LINE. Now i did ask for Nick and of course they said that he was in New Hampshire so right away I KNEW THIS WAS A WHOLE CROCK OF LIES!! If Nick was a professional agent he would have contacted me that day and told me that someone else was going to interview my daughter so I knew then this was not all real!!! We still stayed because my daughter was excited and was looking her best. She learned her lines in like 5 minutes, and she went up the catwalk, said her name, her age, and her line and did her walk and DID VERY WELL! At the end of the show, the judge OF COURSE CALLED ALL THE KIDS "AS THEY ALL WON" WHAT DO YOU KNOW!! How can all 6 kids in a show win! They called her name first up to the stage then the other kids and they took a fake pic of the whole group, with a LITTLE DIGITAL CAMERA!!! Now, it gets even better. They called us all to the back of the stage and they called all of the kids one by one and told them how great they were. They left my daughter for last, and then they TOLD HER HOW AMAZING SHE WAS AND HOW SHE HAD GREAT POTENTIAL AT 11 TO BE AN ACTRESS AND TO MAKE IT VERY FAR!! She was excited and then they told me to open the booklet and to go to the page with the head shots and the three prices. The cheapest was $150 and being that IF SOMEONE REALLY WANTS TO DISCOVER YOU THEY DO NOT CHARGE YOU ANY MONEY UP FRONT, I KNEW RIGHT AWAY THAT THIS WAS ALL NOT REAL, IT WAS A TOTAL TRUE SCAM! NOW, ALL OF THE PARENTS WENT TO THE LINE TO PAY, and I simply asked many questions and told the guy that I would come back and think about it and he told me to leave a deposit. I told him that I will just think about it and that I would get back to him, but I am not. I am not going to pay $150 for a company that is bogus and you know off the bat that its all fake, all they want is your money as they kept pushing it, BUT I WAS THE SMART PARENT THAT LEFT WITHOUT PAYING!!! PLEASE BEWARE OF THESE AMMS ###S!!
