Scam Buzz Words

We're often asked how to spot scams.  Well.....there are a lot of them these days!  The Internet has made it far too easy.

We do have a  few hints:

  • If they are national, and have an office in Indy and 45 other places, it's a scam.
  • If they have no office in Indy but come here 2x a year and meet in a hotel, it's a scam.
  • If they use words like "bootcamp" and "mother agency", they're a scam.
  • If they post each and every day about someone being "on set" with a client, they're a scam.
  • If they want over $1000 of your money, they're definitely a scam.  
The best advice is to not show up at these places with your eyes wide open and just looking to be scammed.  If you do a decent job of evaluating what's being put in front of you, the scams are actually easy to spot.  Don't let the glitter fool you....keep your feet on the ground.
