SCAMMED BY PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT\r \r I scheduled an appt with this place in my search for a talent manager for my twins. After I scheduled the appt, I decided to google them. And to my dismay there ware these websites about how they scam parents by making them pay $$$ for online registrations. The day of my appt, Product Model Management called to confirm. I have told them I wouldn't be able to make it. I wasn't going to drive a three hours drive for scammers. But they convinced me to come. EXTREMELY defensive when you say you won't pay for a website package. Then they try to make you feel stupid, like you don't know that you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars for digital composite cards, not even printed. I have asked them how come they sign hundreds of kids. I thought my twins would be on the 50th page then.They take any kind of very bad photos and every kid who walks through their door. They only want to get your $$$. STAY AWAY. DON'T GET SCAMMED BY POSITIVE REVIEWS POSTED BY PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT'S OWNERS! more

PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT IS FRAUDULENT…\r \r PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT IS FRAUDULENT SCAM\r \r When first submitting my child to the agency, I got an immediate response about setting up a meeting with one of the talent managers, Stephanie. When I arrived for my appointment, there were about 10 other children waiting for their "meetings". This should have been a red flag to me. I waited a half an hour for my daughter's meeting and upon a short interview, Stephanie said that my daughter needed more photos even though I had tons of images. She said that she could use them but I needed to get more commercial looking photos that "shows the front of my daughter's face", she said. She then went went on and on about the fees that needed to be paid to market my daughter on PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT's website (over $750 annual fee and some other initiation fees). This should have been another red flag. Wait. There's more.\r \r She said the main way they get castings is through Actors Access but their bookers submit you themselves for paying gigs- which I doubt.\r \r After 2 months, I heard nothing about auditions or any castings for my daughter. I asked Stephanie about it and she said I didn't have enough pictures of my daughter and that she recommends I take more with PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT's trusted photographers and that I had to pay, out of my own pocket, for the shoots of my daughter. WHAT?! What agency makes you pay your way. If they think that you have potential to make them money from gigs why wouldnt they invest in your port? They will get their money back and more. I then mentioned if it was ok to find my own photographer to shoot my daughter and she said PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT's photographers are better than any other photographer. I saw their photograper's website and their work looked decent but not that great to spend over $1000 on. There are three red flags here: 1) She didn't mention how PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT submits models for commercial print work or what source they used for that matter and 2) she made it clear that PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT was not investing ANY MONEY in me and 3) There's no proof PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT really submits your child.\r \r They insisted I must buy expensive digital cards for my 4 years old daughter. I paid $365 for these comp card but had never received or seen one!!!\r \r After stamping it in her head that I wasn't using PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT's photographers she left it alone BUT proceeded to try to get me to pay for the upfront fees for the marketing materials for my daughter. She proceed, not once, not twice, but about three times to get me to do it. WHAT?! She then mentioned that she doesn't know if my daughter would book a job EVER. WHAT? Why did she signed my daughter on the spot then? By now it was clear to me that all of her attempts were to get me to basically give up some money.\r \r In retrospect, all of those children that were at the office really didn't look like models. No offense, but a lot of them were not model looking. Their roster is extremely long but I doubt that they even find all of these kids work. If this was the case , they would be making tons of money and would be able to pay for these upfront fees and photo shoot expenses. Come on. Their office looks slightly dilapidated and small.\r \r Parents have to pay $10 for submission.They make money by charging parents just to submit a photo of their child!\r \r At the end of the day, this was my experience. Maybe they do find some, as in 2%, of their children talent work. But honestly, if they're using Actors Access then anyone else can find themselves work on their also. I've done and so can anyone else. I wish I read other complaints on here about PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT because there's a lot of time I wasted that I can't get back. For all of those out there reading this, dont sign with them. If you do, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY.\r \r Good luck and never settle! more

PRODUCT MODEL MANAGEMENT IS A SCAM. VERY SCUMMY AND DECEIVING COMPANY. Anyone who is rating this company with 5 stars has to be an actual employee of this terrible company. Most of the jobs that they have are completely fake and they just want to scam parents with tunnel vision that their kid is going to be a star. These people are bottom of the barrel scum who troll on sites like this to give their company a better rating. Please do not buy into any of this garbage. My wife was about to waste a lot of money for their acting classes but I convinced her to do a search online before proceeding. These are the type of people who would steal your money even if your child was on the verge of death and you needed that money to save your child's life. They have no remourse for the people they scam and will burn in hell at the day of judgment, stay away from them! more
