Please don't use this site. Always research before your paying for something important. I'm 14 and payed with my debit card. They have that information. They've already taken $100 away from me. Who does that to a young inspiring model? And who knows if they'll charge more. I only got the 3 day trial but the made me pay for a full year. Now when I try to go on the site it doesn't exist. I'm very disappointed in people.
I signed up for the free membership. Well, to discover that I pretty much couldn't do anything unless I upgraded and paid for a membership. At this point I decided to do some research on the company. Finding out they were a scam, I emailed them asking about the references to them a scam and listed with the BBB as an advertising company and not actually talent scouts. They never responded to my inquiry... they simply just cancelled my profile! That right there tells me they are a scam!!! They won't even explain their side, they just simply deleted me! They probably did this to keep me from getting word to other Standard members before they proceeded to giving them money for a Gold Membership.
Anybody who takes a trip to the bbb website and researches this company will know, this is not a talent agency and that it is listed as an advertising service. this company is a D rated company http://www.la.bbb.org/Business-Report/Talent-Hunter-100042177
and any american should know d's are barely passing, if you have been scammed by this company you should follow the like to complain to the bbb and if you havent been scammed dont risk investing your money into it. Find a good local agent that you can talk to face to face and look for fine print in all the things that they show you, or have a legal professional review it.
I Found talenthunter.com via internet and decided to try it out. i was doing the basic membership the one that is free, and i had gotten an email saying that they needed extras and i could make money fast. Well i went to message the person who contacted me and they said i needed to upgrade.
So i did the three day trial for $1.99. well i went to check my bank account a couple days later i was under $30.00 because they did not only take out $1.99 but also an additional amount that was 19.99. so here i am working minimum wage job that pays under ten dollars an hour and i am also being charged an extra thirty dollars for an over draft.
I am furious with their attempt to pawn themselves off as a decent talent website. i called them and they said they do not give refunds. They should put that in bold print if they are going to take out more than what it says. I am short money now and upset. I hope they get what is coming to them.
Talenthunter.com is not all they are cut out to be. Yah maybe talenthunter.com is the fastest growing site for talent but some of their claims seem out there. I signed up at talenthunter.com and actually got many leads for movie extra and acting roles, but they charge a fee and I don't like that! Maybe talenthunter.com should be free, but it was how would talenthunter make its money, I guess Talent hunter has to charge a fee, maybe they aren't a scam, probably not just wanted to voice my opinion about talenthunter.com. I saw that talenthunter.com has a lot of positive reviews so maybe all the hype is wrong, actually it probably is!
Recently I signed my daughter up for talenthunter.com. I wanted to see what the 'Gold' membership was all about, so I took their 3 day trial offer for $1.99. On the third day I decided it wasn't worth $39.99 a month. I followed their cancellation procedure, and when I went to submit my cancellation form, their 'submit' buttons happened to just not work. So I sent them an email explaining that there was a problem with their link and that I did not want the gold membership. They never responded but of course made sure that they billed my $39.99 the very next morning! When I went to their website to get the phone number to call them, imagine that there wasn't one! I wish I would have thought to check that before hand. I am extremely mad and don't want anyone to have this happen to them!
I signed up with Talent Hunter.com BEFORE I did my research. I paid $149.99 so I could sign my daugther up for 6 months. I thought I was getting a good deal becuase I recieved an email from an "agent" saying that they would be interested in my daughter for a commerical that was being shot in my area (my daughter's pic wasnt even posted at the time, should had be alert number 1). I complained to Paypal and my bank that this company was a fraud.
Too make a long story short, these people WILL NOT respond to any of your requests about cancellations and refunds because they dont have too! My bank will not dispute Paypal, told me that they were untouchable. I disputed with Paypal and my claim was denied. I complained with the Better Business Buearu, still pending but Im sure that my money is gone.
People do your research please. I feel so stupid becuase I cant even get my daughters pics to even load up on their website. SO I got screwed with no protection at all! MAN!!!
I had recieved a letter by Talent Hunter claiming that Hannah Montana casting had viewed my daughters profile...
I received a couple of messages from talent hunter that a casting director wanted me to audition. However...
