There is a banner on topix looking for movie extras in Rolla. The company is Casting360.com and Talent6.com . They are the same company and both are a well known Advance Fee Job Scam. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of online complaints and as many Better Business Bureau complaints. Once you pay their very small portfolio fee with your credit card; well you can guess what happens afterwards.....

The Los Angeles BBB as well as the National BBB give Casting360360 and Talent6 an "F" rating, which is actually fairly hard to do! The LA BBB actually calls Talent6 a scam on the main website.

Casting360 and Talent6 are operated out of Moldova, a small former Soviet Republic known today as a haven for credit card and identity theft. Talent6 has a small administrative office in the USA to comply with US Incorporation rules. 100% of the operation is in Moldova including the "Casting Agent" you spoke with.

In May 2010 Talent6 aka Casting360 was fined by The San Mateo District Attorney $45,000 for False Advertising, Misleading Ads and Fraud.

Just "Google" Talent6 and make sure you check out the LA BBB and do a search for Casting360 on the main LA BBB site.

Nope-but I called because the banner read 'Casting call in Rolla' and wondered what movie would film in Phelps county. I heard the foreign (from Moldova) representative talk and request for 1.98 portfolio fee via credit card. Hung up because it was suspecious. Found their company complaints listed in the BBB and Google.

I saw their banner again on the side of the Rolla Topix page, under 'Job in Rolla'.

Im just warning others who might get scammed into providing their credit card.

Good! You just avoided giving these scam grifters in Moldova access to your account, which would have likely been drained within the hour.

The very small $1.95 fee to create our 'portfolio' seems like such a deal! "How could you pass that up?!?!" But thats how these scammers operate.

You just saved yourself from a huge problem.

There is a casting call for a film to be made in Salem this summer about 4 guys from Kansas City who float the Current and Jacks Fork and play bluegrass with an intellectually challenged local and are then attacked by some hillbillies acting like Akers canoe rangers. (it is a combination action flick love story). Looking for actors that have a pretty mouth and can squeal like pigs.
