I also got a message from Stefan Petrov, or Stef as he calls himself on here. Asking if I wanna work for him. claims he owns 5 modeling agencies. Some of them I can't find and in one of them It says a woman founded it. I couldn't find his name in any of the agencies and asked him about it. I also asked for more information about the agencies and what kind of work he was thinking about etc. I only got a reply saying that his name is not listed in the agencies because he's not the manager, but the owner and that if I didn't wanna work with him, ok. Nothing more. So first of all, If he's the owner he would proparbly not be scouting for models, he would give any info I asked about without hesitation and he would have a company email adress, not a yahoo email. He wouldn't reply like he's 4 years old "if you dont wanna work with me ok" either.. Stay clear of this guy everyone :-)

One company "Average advert" is not a real company!They claim to be a modeling agency, but they're not! I've researched them and it turns out that they are identity thiefs! I've researched them, and there has been young, victims of them!In reality, it's one man who pretends to be somebody els, he'll ask for your photos, so that he can create a fake I.D, that's the reason he's so paranoid about the contract!It's because contracts have personal information(social security number,name,age, etc.) DO NOT FALL FOR THEM! They claim that they wanted my kids for a billboard, and I told them to give us the contract so that we CAN VIEW IT WITH OUR LEGAL COUNCEL AND THAY HAVE NOT CONTACTED US BACK IN ABOUT 3 DAYS! STAY VERY FAR AWAY FRM THEM!

be paid before they can issue you a license.My Financier will send you

stolen from the internet without the owners consent. Your photo cannot
be used until you have signed a contract with my client. Your salary of
