I feel like this is my duty to do something about this. And I have been thinking a lot this morning. How can I make sure no one get trouble from this?! I figured out that this would be the best way, to publish it on internet and warn others.
Anyway, I got this mail the other day. They claim to be from the agency Majormodel.
I contacted Major Model and got this answer:
Over one year ago, october 2016 I came in contact with a guy who say he is Micheal Sadun Sarun, from the company Cedok. This was totally wrong.
After skyping and talking with him for a while I did send a mail to the company. They said that this man does not work here. I attached this picture in the mail.
The answer I got from the company:
At the receipt I got another name from him.
And it match with his skype name.
I want to show some screen shots I found at my old phone...
So, for not wasting your time like I did, I have some tips for you!
Here is how to avoid it:
Promises that sound like your dream come true of a modeling opportunity should be taken with a grain of salt.
If someone requests a Skype webcam interview with you:
1. Find out about the company and the person approaching you.
Make sure the person actually works for the modeling agency they claim to work for.
Does the modeling agency have an About page and list executives (lots of sketchy modeling sites out there). The less information you are able to gather, the more careful you need to be in agreeing to a Skype interview.
2. Take a screenshot of the person interviewing you.
3. If they say they their microphone is not working and all correspondence will be typed not spoken, be suspicious.
4. Keep records of all Skype messages from them.
Be aware that strangers can capture both photos and video of you during a Skype interview.
Please take care! <3
