Modeling Scams


National Discoveries


To Whom It May Concern:

I am a concerned mom whose son wants to attend a modeling thing at the Radisson in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. I was wondering if it was a legitimate agency because I cannot find it on the internet. The company's name is National Discoveries.

Thank you for your time.

J.S.


J.,

You said: "I was wondering if it was a legitimate agency." They are probably not an agency. If they are not an agency, can they be legitimate? The online Florida talent agency license database had no listing for National Discoveries.

Do you have any more information about them? A website address? No BBB record was found.

Most if not all modeling companies which are "national" are scams. So when you see the word "national" in the business name, you need to think twice.

Modeling happens successfully 99% of the time locally. You don't need any "national" company. Find a local agency with a valid talent agency license.

Local agencies seek local talent. Local agencies represent local talent. Local clients seek local agencies. That is how this industry works.

All this national stuff is by and large a waste of time and money. Good local agencies can move models into new markets, national or international.

Most all the national companies are incompetent and/or corrupt.

National Discoveries, if it is not an agency, sounds like a model search. Send more info if you have it. Is there any cost involved?
