    Going through the very same MO verbatim as we speak....finally after a couple of hiccups with the 3 checks @ $985.99 today!!! In the tracking history of the tracking # given...this thing has been to timbucktoo and back....taking to my bank to see if funds are available off the Spokane Teachers Credit Union they're drawn on. I'll keep ya'll posted.

  • dmacimabelvr 04/29/2020 at 08:33 PM

    The checks are drawn as Cashier's checks which if anyone knows how banks have to have $$ in your account to have a Cashier's check issued + fee..per my banks advise, I called the Credit Union 1-800# ... gave them the #'s of the Cashier's which time I noticed one other small discrepancy....2 of the checks were connected to each other yet the check #'s were not consecutive. Credit Union could not verify said check #'s for any amount issued on the day they were issued....Counterfit is my guess.

      Did you determine it was a scam?

  • Kaycee 08/11/2020 at 01:44 AM

    So have we determined that it's officially a scam? I just received the exact same email.

  • Missy 08/31/2020 at 04:31 AM

    I recieved the same message on Model Mayhem as well.
    Real bookers/agents/managers don't hire models this way. It's done mostly through an agency, and these brands that this person is masquerading as, knows this.

    I have reported it and hope no one falls for this.
    Thank you to the above comments for helping me out so I wouldn't waste my time replying.
    I have copied and pasted the email for anyone to see .
