THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, Debtcraft Private Client Group-BIO BIO, BIO-Debtcraft, PCG-BIO Media Woodland Hills California. This company posted a casting call on LA Casting (normally legitimate) for a paid swimwear modeling opportunity. They said it was for a specific Brazilian swimwear line (I won’t say which because the swimwear line did nothing wrong). Supposedly the swimwear line was one of their “clients” and they were holding a US casting for them to choose models for a US photoshoot.
The casting ended up being at a personal residence in Venice and they had the models fill out paperwork with the Brazilian swimwear line’s logo at the top. They had the models get into bikinis and their pictures were taken by a Playboy photographer and then by a creepy amateur photographer. There were then interviews asking about the model’s personal life, hobbies, and interests. My little sister is a professional model and went to this casting. She ended up being put on the company’s email list inviting her to social events with “single, wealthy men”. I contacted the owner of the Brazilian swimwear line directly and she had NEVER heard of this company nor the individuals running this casting.
She said there have been absolutely no US castings and there is no such US photoshoot. So basically, this Debtcraft company lured girls to come get in their bikinis and give them their contact information by creating a 100% bogus casting for a swimwear line with which they have zero affiliation. So to the individuals of this company, I hope you read this. Why would you pretend your casting was something that is was not? Why not just say what it is really for– you want pretty, younger women who are interested in socializing with you and your clients. By lying about it, you are going to waste the time of legitimate models who are looking for paid MODELING opportunities. You could just be upfront about it and not create a fake veil over it and maybe you’d get the girls who may actually be interested in what you are doing. So in the future, post a casting on craigslist or escort websites where you belong and don’t waste the time of professional models and actresses.
Calculated creepiness is so 2015.- nik
