i got notified by a woman named Brenda who said that her store C4U (Clothes 4 U) was opening up and needed models for their clothes. the payoff was 500 bucks but she wants to pay through creditcard and wants a hell of alot of personal info. i told a friend about it who told me to ask around and that this was most likely a scam. He said a friend of his had the same offer. anyone else get this offer?

Does sound like a scam:endecided:
First I've ever heard of paying a model by credit card though:dunno:

that's what i was thinking. thanks gary

Someone else DID get this and they emailed me about it. I have directed them to this forum post...

Run for your life!!!

LOL~

Hi XXXXXX, Am glad you are supportive of XXXXX's modeling ambition. thats really good of you. I will be at the shoot with her. Though am a very busy person. but i make sure i attend photoshoots, especially when it has to do with young models.
This first shoot will determine if XXXXX will be signed as one of C4U official models. I will make arrangements with the shoot supervivsor ASAP, so he will be contacting you very soon to schedule a date and time within this period of time for the shoot, Okay.
The information below should be submitted to me ASAP, Becuase it will be forwarded to the financial officer/sponsor company of the shoot, who are the ones sponsoring the entire shoot Including the logistics( booking of studio, stage deco, transportation of crew(Photographer, MAU, stylist) down to your location.

I will like to read from you soon with this information, As we have other models that will be doing the shoot too. This will enable fast process of XXXXX's payment. As it is the usual policy of the company to pay models before the shoot, so as to be rest assure that the model are set to shoot.

...if nothing else, the need for card limit is questionable....

The e-mail above is a scam, no doubt abouth that, why would he ask for your credit card details including your ssn.

Agreed with Akland Images. If she is going to pay you, there is no need for **your** credit card information.

Yes It was Me I know, The scammer tried but my Dad works for an aggency that works with Id Theft, He said No way that they need your ccardinfo so they can PAY YOU? this a textbook 411 scam. PLEASE do not be taken by this type of scam, MY dad asked About her and she would not talk about where she lived. How longshe has been working as a scout? Come on Put on that chasity belt !! don;t get screwed...hahahahahha CAUGHT YA !!!!!!!!!!!!:muscle:

Thanks, Robert. Now this is information around which a judgment can be formed.

Most of the information above is needed when you are making a payment. It is a smartly worded email. Read it again, people. You are agreeing to pay them $500 for a studio shoot. If you give them your info, they will be able to charge your credit card for $500. When you report them, they hold up the contract you made with them authorizing the charge. If they limit their greed to a mere $500.

This information:
Issuing Bank...........
Card Limit.................
SSN....................
MMN............

...is information that only an identity thief would need.


The biggest warning sign
You do not make credit card transactions through email! Never fill in an email asking for information. NEVER EVER!

Secure credit card transactions are carried out only encrypted web pages. In most browsers, the address bar will turn yellow and a 'lock' icon will appear at an edge of your browser window. This is one indicator that your transaction is safe.

If you are not on a secure page, any credit card information you type can be copied.

As a bottom line, people have to understand that a business will not offer to hire and pay a model it has never seen. If you sit back and just wait for offers to come into your email Because you are just oh so beautiful :sleep: all you are going to get is scammed or contacted by horny people.

Use your common sense. There are legitimate photographers out there looking to trade with or hire models for a shoot. These will be the photographers in your local area or traveling photographers. This is your main market. A big offer is not going to suddenly come to your email unless it is a scam.

Never send money via Western Union for too-good-to-be-true items/opportunities. There is no way to get your money back once it is wired.

plz dont just send any thing to them ok, its not true.

This is just too dangerous for a starting model. i was nearly to go with them, the fact that I received 2 in the space of 3 days made me think that it was to good to be true. Just be careful... Nothing is that easy in this world...

yes indeed.. couldn't agree more...
