Site is now dormant.
Cast Express misrepresents on www.castexpress.com that it has been around since 1993. "A Leading Online Casting Service Since 1993 CastExpress/TPE is a daily casting notice service for all medias in the entertainment and photography industries." (http://www.castexpress.com) [Aug. 2, 2005]. This is fraud deliberately designed to make it appear Cast Express is established (and therefore reputable).
Firstly, the internet was used by virtually nobody in 1993, certainly not for casting; secondly, the domain name castexpress.com was not registered until ten years later, 2003:

The contact information of this domain is not consistent with a reputable company; it is yahoo and hotmail email accounts:
