This is ExploreTalent.com. I signed up on their website over a year ago and received many phone calls from them. I felt harassed and tried to delete my account to no avail. They still call me sometimes and even though I told them I'm no longer interested, I received a text message from them today at this number.
This number has called me the past 2 days. No message and no answer when I call back. Seems to be similar to the situations here although the last 4 numbers are different. It's creepy.
Ya ... Just got a call from a woman that spoke very poor English wanting to verify and wanted me to upload more pics on their website. Said she was working for Explore Talent, but needed to verify my email, and location. Wanted to know who my cell carrier was and when I refused to give it to her, she hung up. Scam of some sort, just not sure what they were trying to get. I gave a bogus email, and location. Do not trust people that can't speak plain english, I asked her location - Vegas.
I just starting receiving calls from this number and have been getting a call at least one a day.
I hope everybody is reporting them to do not call. These scumbags have got to be penalized, and they will fine them if enough people complain. I hope they jail the low lifes.
Got multiple calls over past couple days, no messages. Caller id says P. Goodrich 702-331-8558. Called back from diff. # as to try to identify who they are, heard fumbling in back, then simple hello (mans voice) with no company / or agency intro. I hung up as to not enable tracking. After reading all these posts, think i will call them and give them a taste of there own meds, maybe my own talent agency or awards promo. Really wish i could reach through the phone and choke the #*!% outa them. Good luck to all dealing w/these scum.
Just got a call from this number this morning, 7-8-12. Didn't answer, because it said Unknown Name. It kicked to the answering machine, and they hung up. Glad I didn't answer now, from what I've read here. Hope they stop calling. Really bothers me that someone might have sold them all my info.
I just got this call. Someone with broken English wanted to know if I had heard of Jessica Alba. Oh yeah, They dropped her name. I reminded them that I'm on the no call list and the caller reminded me that this is the first time they've called me. I quickly reminded them that there should NEVER had been a first time as I am on the National Registry of DO NOT CALL. She said, "Oh I understand this." And hung up. Seriously, who gets away with these scams anymore? I'm really beginning to wonder if there are some poor souls out there daft enough to fall for them. Jessica Alba would be seriously cheesed off to know they're using her name to scam people out of their hard earned money. Money they could have used to see, buy or rent one of her films.
Just got a call from them, asking for a fictitious name. Went into a sales pitch, but woman spoke poor English, couldn't tell what she was saying. Hung up and blacklisted the number.
Gawd....I'm so sad to read that some people are getting NUMEROUS calls from this number! I got a message on my cell, the message sounded like a recording; she said she was with a talent agency and was looking for talent like me. I have NO IDEA how she got my number! I never called back. In real life, talent agencies don't call complete strangers!
said they were a casting company movie extras brad pitt asten crucher
Please report them to the do not call list. These terrorists have to be stopped, and it won't happen unless people complain about them. On my machine the name GOODRICH P. appears
I'm not an actress, nor did I sign up for any acting gigs.
We are all random numbers for their scam.
How did these losers get our cell phone numbers?
I got a call from this number today. I picked up and someone lady with Indian accent was on the other line. She informed she was calling from Exploretalent.com. She said she have my resume and she did confirm she had my e-mail. I never submitted for acting job nor am I looking for a job. So I did a research on the company and there were lot of pissed off people with this company. Basically they scan for extras for movie that might happen. She told me to go on the site and upload many picture as I can. Mind you I am still telling her I have never submitted for this job. She started asking for my eye color, hair color..etc...
I told her why would that even matter? She said since shes done with the question she will send all information to my e-mail and told me which e-mail she had. My e-mail that she had was correct. So it seems like companies are easily giving out personal info to other companies business these days and its just inevitable. (I have put myself on *Do not call list*, which seems to be not working.)
Got a call from this number 702-331-8558. Lady said she was with exploretalent.com. Told me Ashton Kutcher was coming to my hometown. They asked for a discription of what I looked like, I gave them all the wrong info about what I looked like. My daughter was listening and laughing the whole time! But you never know, they could try to use that to steal your info, so nothing that I gave them was anything close to the real me!
I have received several of these calls. Modeling agency scam. Went as far as asking for my height, age, and eye color. Telling me my e-mail address that i deleted over 10 years ago.
I wanan work!!!!!!!!!!!
i JUST RECIEVED A CALL FROM THIS NUMBER. I ALWAYS SCREEN MINE . SO I DECIDED TO LOOK IT UP ONLINE. WOW ITS CREEPY AFTER READING ALL OF YOUR RESPONSES
thanks so much. i'm not calling them back. that is creepy that they have my information. with human trafficking and such, it is a scary world out there and we can NOT trust anyone.
keep calling asking for Jennifer, have asked them to remove my number, calls again today and I said you have the wrong number, then she wants to know if I am related to Jennifer noone here of that name.
I just got a call from 7023318558. The woman sounded Indian and said they were looking for acting talent for, "a movie of Ashton Kutcher." I'm not kidding, that's how she worded it. They will pay like $825/day. I told her, "NO! Last time I worked with Ashton Kutcher he really pissed me off! I'm not doing that again!" I suggest calling the number back too. They do answer and know who you are. Continue calling and telling them that you are looking for someone to market your products and try to sell them an imaginary product.
Called saying that they were interested in finding extras for a new movie with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Immediately told them that I had my doubts that that was what they were doing. They hung up. I called them back; asked them to remove my name and number from their call lists. She agreed to; again, I have my doubts.
I just got the same phone call as everybody else I asked for them to delete my profile and they had e call 1800 934 0000 and there you talk to their customer care and thye will delete you from the data base..... Good Luck!
Got a call at 9:30 PM Eastern time from this number! 9-freaking-thirty PM! WTF?!?!? The woman started asking questions about my age and body type, hair and eye color, ethnicity, etc. I told her I'm on the do not call list, and even if I wasn't it's really unacceptable to call people at 9:30 PM with telemarketing calls. I have to get up at 4:30 AM for work. I asked her to take me off their list, but obviously since the call was illegal anyway, I doubt that will happen. I called the Las Vegas, NV number back five minutes later because I was fuming, and I was completely shocked that someone actually answered. I told her I'd just received an illegal call way too late at night, and was put on to a manager. The manager sounded really flustered and apologetic, and kept trying to calm me down by saying, "It's OK, it's OK." To which I relplied, "No, it is not OK, and I'm going to file a complaint with the FCC." She apologized again (sounded really flustered and stressed out) and said, "If that's what you want." The email address she had for me was one I haven't used in over six years, and she insisted that the call was not illegal because I'd signed up with some affiliate years ago, so they had every right to call me. It's my understanding that I have to have conducted business with the calling company in order to make such a telemarketing call legal (like my phone company, or cable company).
The guy asked me if I was interested in an acting career. I said I have always been interested in doing porn. I told him that I am hung like a Kenyan Tribesman with a firm 11 inches uncut and that I was really interested in doing gay porn and that I really wanted to tear someone's a$$ to shreds. He immediately hung up and I haven't heard from them since.
Don't you just love facebook!! They're so great to offer up our personal info like that!
They keep calling me as well. I never answer. Hoping they will eventually give up... They called twice in march, 4 times in april, and twice this month. Guess they are determined little buggers! Oh well, doesn't bother me though, because I have awesome ignoring people skills! =)
Definitely not legitimate. I have asked them a few times to take me off their list, yet I still get the call. The last time I spoke with a heavily accented woman and I told her I did not act anymore and was not interested in signing with a new agency. Today I answered and they just hung up. Scam. Do not give them any information.
I just got a call from this number. The lady, who didn't speak English very well, asked for Christine. I told her she had the wrong number, then she asked my name and began telling me about some Brad Pitt movie they need extras for. Sounded sketchy to me so I hung up. Wow.
