Modeling Agency Scam Ariza Talent

Well, on Thursday I went to a so call modeling agency in Longwood,Fl named Ariza Talent & Modeling agency and I should have stuck with my gut feeling about not traveling there. Well there it was, another scam agency that may been behind on rent and trying to pick up new people from their convincing ad on craigslist.org, "Looking for so and so, come in for a free evaluation". And yes, free it was but the minute I met the owner, I knew he was up to no good. Whenever an agency sells other services, claiming you need help with this and that in order to become a part of their agency, RED FLAG! RUN. Never feel that in order to be apart of something, you are obligated to pay. In the state of Florida, there is a law where modeling and talent agencies are never to charge an upfront fee to join their agency, they make their money on commission from work they find for you. I've done paid work with many agencies in Miami and I never was once sold any classes or had to sign up for anything. They only taken their 20% fees out for work that I did that they found for me.

Jeff took me for hundreds of dollars, sold my daughter false dreams, and produced bad quality comp cards. He refused to use the ones I had taken about a month before visiting the agency. It's a scam and that's a promise
