SCAM Online Modeling AgencyDo not respond or give money to this agency. They created fake online magazines with Wordpress to make it look more legit. If it's too good to be true it probably is...

I was scammed by this same company & sent this same email & a fake contract for the balmain shoot offering $1,000 per day for a 3 day shoot.Craig Lincoln lied to me & took a $110.00 registration fee payment from me.

I'm an aspiring model who is now devastated.How do I get my money back?

Yes, I agree this is unacceptable.And people need to know not to buy into this scam.

I just wish there was something more we could do to alert people of this.

After I spoke to Craig on the phone he did call back for a follow up call, and wanted me to pay for the contract and papwork.

Same here.I declined because I am experienced.

I could tell it was fake after asking for that money.

That is so ridiculous.I wish there was something we could do too, to alert more people of this!

They are scammers for sure.They used to be K-Dash Agency and Vain Magazine.

If you google or search the company or employees on Facebook no one shows up. There are no address or phone numbers associated with them.

If you look up their models none of them ever show up as part of JLondon Agency.

Hmm - I've just emailed them asking to confirm that they will not ask for any money whatsoever / password / credit card details..no reply yet...

hmmmm.

I sent this link through to them & they stated that the model who they let go because she was rude to the client started up this page - I'm assuming this isn't true at all.

Did you speak to a Craig on the phone?

Just received this email the other day - also received calls from a random number in the US - Please ladies, do not buy into this... if its too good to be true it probably is, warning bells go off when they can't even get the spelling correct in their first email before the above information email was sent... they also come across very short and unwilling to explain themselves of how they got your details or when snapshots are attached from H&M stating that their email on behalf of Balmain wasn't authentic.
