Dear NYMMG (Model Management Group),
First off, you are a bunch of big liars and scammers. However, I can only blame myself as I was too blinded by my own dream of stardom to realize the kind of rip-off you guys were trying to sell to hopeful models and actors like myself.
- $3000 for a photoshoot with some photographer you forced me to work with[1. The only part of this whole scam that was remotely close to being worthwhile. Those were some nice photos, but definitely not worth 3 grands.]
- $1000[2. Ok, so the cost for each of these might be a bit exaggerated, but not by much. I can't remember the exact amount.] to print out a bunch of comp cards
- $900/year to be on your “web database”
If all this upfront money isn’t bs, I don’t know what is. And the ironic thing is, of the 2 years I have worked with you, I’ve made a total of $500. Yes, $500 after spending all that money, not to mention missing classes so I can commute 5 hours on some smelly bus to New York, only to go through the same commute 3 hours later. Don’t even get me started on those times where you’d cancel castings on me after I arrived in New York.
I don’t care if you’re based in NYC, the great fashion capital of the US or if you have a page filled with your “successful models and actors” (which just looks desperate in my opinion), I have made more money and gotten more work in the DC area within the past half year than I have with YOU. Do you know how SAD and PATHETIC that is? As a matter of fact, one of my greatest achievements so far, modeling for Korto Momolu, happened through my agent in DC, not through your pompous agency.
So you know what? You can take your castings and auditions and shove them down your pants and light it on fire, because that’s exactly what you guys are, a bunch of liars. Good riddance!
