Okay, these people placed and Ad on Craigslist for extras (in movies, etc), but under customer service and no where else. Already fishy. I called the number from work (ha ha on them, but oh the receptionist will be P.O.'d.)
After holding, I get a guy that is struggling to hide his accent, and clearly reading a script. Finally, he says it will cost $1.98 to get me started and asks for my name. I hang up, of course. I should have asked if I can send a money order!
Obviously a scam.
was looking for a job.and for listings all over the net that they
were hiring extras actors.The # they have posted is 1-800-913-5501
(Talent6)but the # does Not exist!!Another thing is they have no
website just keeps bringing you back to the job listings (careerbuilder
myspace jobs)while talent6 does exist and does have a web page these postings are not!! Make sure to check if they have a physical address in
the area they say they are at.
Thanks for the warning.
I think I called them before... at least I called one of these movie extra companies... they wanted $1.50 and wouldn't send a request via post office mail.
I've seen their add a million times all over CareerBuilder. Looks like a scam.
to previous anon: did they ask for the credit card info when you called the 800 number?
of course they need your credit card number to get any information about the company! They won't even send out a pamphlet about themselves if you dont give them your credit card!
They are hiring behind the scene actors. "
This is an opportunity for Full and Part Time work. Make up to $250/day standing or sitting behind the main actors in films, commercials and TV shows.
Contact us 1-800-913-5502 for information on how to get started. "
