Lorren and Macy's Modeling School & Agency
To Whom It May Concern:
I am 14 years old, and like any other teen I wanted
to become a model, too.
I thought I was smart about whom I chose, but it turns
out I guess I should have listened to my mom.
One day at my school we had a Career Day, and a woman
came and said she was a scout for Lorren and Macy's Modeling
School & Agency.
She picked me and a couple of my friends, but not everyone
got chosen. I figured it had to be good if she only picked
I paid $300 for classes, and on the first day I also
had to pay a $20 registration fee.
After a few classes, she wanted $250 for pictures, and
then $95 for composites.
When my mother would ask her about where it was going,
or why it cost so much, the women would be really rude
and get angry for wondering where we were throwing our
I got on the net and found out that Lorren and Macy's
Modeling School & Agency is incorporated with Millie
Lewis. Also Lorren and Macy's Modeling School & Agency
is going to the MAAI
convention, and wants you to pay $2,400!
One person I met in modeling said he has been represented
by Lorren and Macy's Modeling School & Agency for
two years but has yet to receive one modeling job. He
has been to four conventions and has lost more than $10,000.
I clearly suggest not going unless you want to throw
away money. It's very unorganized, and I'm very thankful
my mother pulled me out before I turned out like my friend.
I would suggest sending pictures to some agents in big
cities near you. Why should you pay $2,400 to get agents
to see you when you can send them your picture for FREE!?

The BBB record also included the leader of the company: "Principal: Ms.
Georgette K. Callas MAAI."
So what have we here? Is Ms. Callas the head of or does
she work for the MAAI convention? Is that why they want
people to spend $2,400 and attend the convention?
