The Crawford Agency — Rip off
This is how it all happened. I response to an ad in the news paper that they are looking for model of all ages for Target. I called and was given an audition date. I show up and there were tons of people there of all age. Maui are present giving a long speech. After that, I did and audition, reading from a script the give me. Was given an call back time, a letter with an user name & password and was told not to tell anyone at the audition, then I when home. Couples days later, they called me and told me I made it and to go back and sign a contract. When I got there I did read the contract and sign it along with a user name and password to signin into their wedsite. When I thought I was done, The lady told me I need to set up a online profile which will cost me 1000.. I needed to paid the about $350 up front and if I can't make that payment upfront, I can do it monthly. Which I did paid $350 and paid the rest off later. I called and set up an date for a photoshoot which was part of the package. I think "Shanna" was she photographer. I also paid another $75 more to get some copied of the picture which was for my own good. Keep this in mind that this was only within two week since the audition. As days when by I check for update of audition as I was told. The auditions were mostly auditions I can find for free from craigslist and several other free casting website. Sorry its been aobut 4 years now I forget most of the websites. I was also told that in order for me to get update information I need to sign up for a yahoo group account so that i can get update for www.crawfordagency.com member sign in since thier login information change all the times. Again I did as I was told. A month when by after calling several time about my picture final I recieve the pictures I paid for which was not professional and had bad quality. You can tell that it was print from their JetInk. Months when by and I haven't hear anything form them, My profile was posted and I never recieve any call from anyone. I'm not a ugly person. Most of the times Im the center of attention ok. Crawford never called me or bother to keep my update of new password. Ive tried contacting them but they never return my calls. I when to the offic severals time by was always told that the person I wanted to meet is avaible. Did I do something wrong where or was this a rip off? For me, is a rip off. A service promised by never served.
