National Event Staffing / Beware of them

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Beware of this SCAMMER. They are a fake staffing company that hires promotional models for events. The bill the client and keep all the money never paying the model (sub- contractor). There are 100's of complaints and people are trying to gather information to form a class action lawsuit. 2 problems with that. #1 there is no "real" information on the company all fictitious names and address. They do not answer calls or emails from the models. #2 they are in Canada.

If anyone know of any REAL information please post it. These people need to be stopped. We need an inside source that can provide information.

    I was also scammed by them and never paid. Beware they will keep your money and they are anonymous.

    Hi Guys,

    Some good news...After almost a year I have finally received a PayPal payment from NES!!! I worked at an event in August '07 and honestly thought it was a lost cause.

    If you look on the internet you will see that they simply were overwhelmed and changed their business model August 2007. They have since been scrambling to catch up on payments to all staff. All staff have been paid and now they don't get involved with staff pay checks as it was getting too messy they simply connect the client to the staff member. Hope that helps you. I work for them all the time and I get paid direct by the client and have never had a problem as of August 2007 and they caught up and paid me via paypal as well for my work back in 2007.

    NES sounds just like promomodels...they do not pay and are scammers. Please be careful when dealing with either orgs. Both will say that they have a new business model or new managment- but at the end of the day both NES and promomodels are breaking the law by not paying their models within the acceptable time.

    Promomdels does not pay-watch out!

    They have charged me a $100 few to work for their company. It is a total scam and they are refusing to return my money. Beware! Very dishonest business practices. I will be complaining to Better Business Bureau. Everyone else should do likewise

    Here are a couple of RED FLAGS that I noticed from this Agency:
    1. They want you to pay them to become Pro member, because supposedly that who get the job. $119 fee per year. Legit staffing companies are free and make money by booking staff and charging the client an hourly fee.

    2. They have ads on their website. No other business website, staffing agency have ads on their website. Also ads have NOTHING to do with what they promote (Staffing agency and events)

    3. When I signed up, they did not ask for any Tax information (W-2, W-9/1099 Form). That is one of the first things companies ask for when you are an employee or contractor.

    4. They have an affiliate program. They want people to become paid members, and refer others to become paid members. They all about getting members in their yearly paid program, not actually booking jobs.

    5. no contact info list anywhere on the site. Legit businesses have multiple ways to contact them (Phone, Email, Contact forms, Live chat, so forth)

    6. They claim to pay $20 -$60 per hour. I'm with several other agencies, and the average is about $20 -30 per hour, unless a model for a photo shoot or commerical, but even then they pay a flat rate.

    These things that are red flags that they are scams. No other agencies of any industry do these things.
