Wilhelmina Talent Scout ?
Has anyone here heard of this company? They have 'talent scouts' in places like MRT stations giving out coupons and asking you to attend a talk at their agency. During the talk they say that they'll put your pic on their website for a one time fee of $995 and monthly fee of $19.95, so that Model Agencies can search through the database. Collecting money is not allowed for talent agencies but they claim their agency is a scouting agency and not a talent agency. I searched the web and found that the US arm is being investigated for fraud ,
Strange thing is the agency says it founded N'Sync, Backstreet Boys and O Town.
.. Ok after reading up more, the agency didnt find N'Sync and the others. Lou Pearlman , the creator of N'Sync and BSB started Wilhelmina scouting network.
Which is not the same as Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.
