United Talent Group / Fraud and cheating
Wow, I can not believe this group, they totally ripped me off and I found out they have ripped off several other people from rip-off as well. I wish I would have read this before I started working with them. The funny thing is they used to be called 'W Talent' and now they changed their name to United Talent Group. They probably had to since they were getting such a horrible reputation. Rather than whine on my own I will quote what some others have said on this board about them as I think that will speak for itself. I have only added in brackets for their name change as to not confuse people who read it.
'Listen up folks, this is the first hit on this company and I definitely forsee the complaints growing. W Talent [United Talent Group] in Salt Lake City is an unprofessional, pretentious, wannabe New York or Los Angeles based business but were not in LA, were in Utah for the love of gosh.'
'Ive never even met this CEO, Evan Walker. Hes passed me several times when Ive been in their studio and keeps walking. Other agencies Ive been with the CEO will pass me in the hallway and say hello, welcome to my agency, glad your with us. But no, the majority of the staff walks around with their nose in the air. The New Faces director, whom I dealt with, and signed with, was more than pleasant, but then again, she was getting a commission, so again, where is the integrity of W Talent [United Talent Group]?'
'Im sure [United Talent Group] has done a lot of great things for a lot of great people, but for me they have done absolutely nothing, and I urge you to do research on this company before you make the big mistake of signing with them.'
'I am sure that W Talent [United Talent Group] has helped some people but I just feel that I am not one of them. I think that W Talent completely misrepresented not only it's ability to help talent but also their faith in me. If W Talent [United Talent Group] is not willing to run a professional business then I think others deserve the right to know before signing with them.'
'3 months passes and not one follow up call, email, or letter. Then my debit card gets charged for the monthly renewal charge for $95. My fiance calls, leaves a message to have someone call her... no return call again.'
'A real talent agency would never force you to do business with them! In my conversation with the accounting lady she kept comparing them to a gym. If I'm paying $95 a month for a gym membership then I think they could return a call, place a call, or acting like they even cared. If you are looking to get into the model or acting business stay away from W Talent [United Talent Group]!!!'
Again, this company changed from W Talent to United Talent Group so keep that in mind when you read the above. If anything at all at least do your research on them; hopefully there are some people who are satisfied with their services out there but it doesn't seem like it to me. I would suggest finding a few of their clients on your own somehow and talk to them about their experience before signing with United Talent Group.
