Complaint / review / scam report
Just Canadian Talent (aka JCT)
BE WARNED : [[JUST CANADIAN TALENT]] IS A SCAM AND I FULLY INTENDED WITH MANY OTHERS TO EXPOSE THEM

Back in 2008, I showed an interest in the Acting Industry, so I decided to call Agencies all around Mississauga to see which ones looked reputable. I saw an ad the the newspaper saying :

TALENT WANTED :

Men, Women and kids
needed for film, TV Series,
Commercials & Print.
Some recent projects our talent
can be seen in:Cineplex Odeon,
Pirates of the Caribbean, Pepsi

I decided to call, because I thought this would be a good starting job for me as a Fresh Face Actor, so I called and set up and appointment. I went, did an interview with Jason Cameron, and left. They said they would call if I made it in .And surely after 3 days of anxiously waiting, I got the call.

They told me It was REQUIRED to take acting classes through them, -although I had already done so in the past - and I was hesitant to say yes, but in the end I ended up paying

*$800.00 *

YES, $800.00
the FULL FEE was $1190.00
but JC offered to pay $390.00

BIGGEST SCAM EVER.


So, the Class was 4 weeks
- ONE LESSON PER WEEK, WITH 2 HOURS .

The classes were HORRIBLE . All the things i learned there, I could've learned form an instructional video on You tube .
BUT, of course i was naive so I went to all the classes

Just to find out in the end that EVERYONE passed ( even the WORST of actors) and was recommended to the Intermediate Level.

WHICH IS A WHOPPING
$495.00
Jason Cameron recommended that I should take the Intermediate classes, but I was not THAT stupid to see it was a scam.

- SEEING THAT BOTH COURSE OUT LINES FOR BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE WERE THE SAME.-


About a week after the classes were done, they then called me in for a photo shoot through THEIR agency, they said that I could only use THAT particular photographer.

The rates pf the Photo shoot are as follows:

2 LOOKS ( COMMERCIAL & THEATER)
B/W OR COLOR
which includes :
Hair ( I did myself)
Makeup( poorly done, they were NO WHERE close to my shade.)
Studio
Labour (WHAT LABOUR? )
Film

Reprints
1 Look= 50 Shots( each $5 ) = $250 tax
2 Looks = 100 Shots ( each $3.95) = $395 tax

I ended up paying for the 1 look package which cost me* $ 275 *
and when I got to " MY PHOTO SHOOT" there were several people there doing there's ( not workers)

Well you think after I've spent over $1000 I wouldn't have to spend any more right?

WRONG!


After the photo shoot I had to pay a Semi-Yearly Administration Fee :
*$60*

which on the contract it says is for " Break Down Services, Courier Costs etc.."
- I signed the contract on January, 20 . 2009.

WHAT BREAK DOWN SERVICES???

TALK ABOUT SCAM.


SO IN ALL I SPENT $1135 ON NOTHING.


and I have ALL the individual yellow receipts to prove it.


One of my friends during the classes also signed with the agency and is now in the same predicament as me .


Mind you were both only 15.
YES, Minors.



PLEASE IF YOU'VE BEEN SCAMMED BY THEM, PLEASE HELP STOP THEM . AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING THAT I CAN DO TO HELP ME AND MY FRIEND GET MY MONEY BACK, PLEASE MESSAGE ME
ASAP
