    Thanks for posting this because I recently got an email but I ignored it so I browsed a little on your website and came across this!

    This is very alarming… I’m thankful I haven’t received anything like this. A lot of people get so blinded by things like this because it’s instant money. Scams are everywhere. Don’t get easily fooled. Most of the people who get fooled are those who desperately need it. I know they’re the worst people to fool because they already need the money, but that’s the reality that we’re in.

      I know, money isn’t hard to find so if someone just offers you that, don’t take it and run just yet.

    OMG this is scary. Be careful people. Others will do everything to just get ahead of others.

    I want to be a model for Urbanette too, but I think I’m not pretty enough.

      You might want to email them properly instead of commenting here. Who knows!

    What do they even gain by using Urbanette’s name? I mean, what can they get from you? This worries me even though I haven’t be contacted by anyone. Anyway, you should all be careful. I follow Insider Diva for their modeling advice and how to not get scammed by agencies and how to land projects and this is nowhere near how it works. Be wary if it’s too good to be true because it probably is.

    Nobody pays anyone in advance when it’s a modeling project. Finish it first, then get paid.

    It’s so easy to fake emails now. They use the proper name itself but if you look at the email address carefully, it’s different.

    Hello, I’m a model and I want to work for Urbanette but I don’t know who to contact. Which is why I came across this page, I thought it was about hiring.

    We can’t help it. The world is full of people like them who enjoy trolling others for the sake of I don’t know what. It’s so rampant now and it’s so dangerous. You have to always do your research so you don’t get fooled by fake agencies trying to recruit you for projects that don’t really exist. For people who don’t have any idea about how modeling works, you have to consult legit sources so you don’t end up getting scammed. Watch out for your own backs.
