Hi there,

If you have been scammed by promo models
please join us at www.myspace.com/promomodelsscam

although this is great way to organize models who have been scammed by promo models, we need to take further actions.

I would like for us to file a lawsuit with small clam if some models have not already.
I noticed that after talking to several models, the company is not taking any of us seriously because no one has yet brought them to court. So to them we are just a bunch of loud models making noise with no action. Therefore they continue their business, still sending out jobs as if we don't exist.

I remember when I spoke to Lucas (THE OWNER, who claims does not work for them, BIG LIE), he mentioned that it was pointless to sue the company because it was going to cost "us" the models too much, therefore it wasn't going to be worth it. But I think it's a way for him to scare the models. The cost of filing a small claim lawsuit is close to nothing (less then $30), and the cost you pay is reimbursed at the end of the trial.

So again, if everyone here is serious about getting their money back or at least taking this company down, we need to do more then just make noise, we need to take action.

If you are interested, join us at www.myspace.com/promomodelsscam. we all need to file at the BBB office for an investigation, bring as many models as possible to file a small claim and to also report them in the FBI scam report for further investigations.

I am also looking into contacting Turko File of KUSI news but I need as many models as possible in order to have a good case. So please save all of your booking emails, date, time, client info etc..

I found some more information, seems they also run www.OnPointMarketing.com

A few news stations have done stories about them and here is the latest one I could find, seems they have gone out of business and underground.

Promo Models is still at it, using this Mail Boxes Etc box: 3639 Midway Drive, Suite B, #216, San Diego, CA 92110. Our company hired a model for a trade show and pre-paid for this service. Model did not show. (no wonder). Phone number /phone number removed/ says "this number not accepting messages". Contact Emily "Smith". Probably an Alias.

Note: They insisted I make out check to The Agency Inc and NOT (all caps, bold, & italic on the contract) Promo Models. I assume they are trying to hide money in another bank account, so I offer this information for the lawyers.

Anyone who wants a copy of the client contract, please email me at meira @ bellatm dot com.

Please do NOT call /phone number removed/ as listed on this website. Whoever had this number turned it back in to AT&T and unfortunately recycled it to me. I have NO affiliation to Emily or Pro Models, but am receiving lots of calls! Thank you and Good Luck!

There have been 14.95 charges to my debit card. When you call the phone number to see why they are chargeing your card the phone number is a fax number.

Has anyone been recently scammed by Promo Models? Channel 10 news in San Diego is trying to re-investigate the company and owner. I was scammed over two years ago and just gave up after getting the run around when trying to seek payment. I work 3 events for them in Miami, FL.
