They will coax you in with a statement guaranteeing you online presence in their line up for only $1.98. Once they get your bank or credit card information they then tell you you have 14 days to upload your pictures. If you wish to remain in the line up you will need to pay $4.95 per month.
I signed up for two weeks trial on the website of the company Casting 360. I haven’t signed up for any long trials, but these jerks continued to charge me after these 2 weeks. WTF? I went to the website and cancelled my subscription on time, as the rep told me, but they took more and more from me. I wonder if there are other people, who had the same experience. Can you provide any good piece of advice?
I signed up on the phone on 8-4-14 I spoke with Sam she went through her speech I thought that she said the monthly fee was $4.90 a month so I went ahead with the registration. When we got to the end of the conversation I wanted clarification on the monthly fee. When she told me it was in fact $34.90 a month I told her I couldn't afford the fee and to forget it I didn't want to sign up. She told me that I would have to call their 800 number which I did immediately it took 23 minutes to reach anyone. I was told at that time that I would have to call back by the Aug. 14th to get taken off the list. It is Aug 12th and I've been calling since 7:00am and the phones are mysteriously not being picked up, thus I cannot cancel my membership.
Answered craigslist add for work saying casting right now need actors and actresses for movie that was starting. Called the number and was told that I needed to pay 1.98 and supply credit card information to be put on the database. Person on the phone requested information to add me to the Internet database. When I tried to login was not able to login. I called supplied number and was called to support. I was called the next day by a person claiming to be from Casting360.. He advised that he was aware of my profile and that there was some work in my area they wanted to sent me to. We got disconnected on the phone and he advised that the 1.98 was a 14 day trial. and that it would be auto billed at 39.00 a month after that. He advised that he could make a deal and let me pay 59.95 for a year if I paid now. He never talked about any work anymore.I told him I didn't think I wanted to do that and that I couldn't even login to the sign. I hung up and shortly later I got a notice from my bank that there was a new charge for 59.95 on my bank account putting me under m limits. I checked my bank account and found that they had charged 1.98, 1.00 and the 59.95. The 59.95 was billed under the name Casting800.
