I was nearly scammed by these charlatans, and I am writing this review to try to prevent others from being scammed by this company as wellThey used the same lies and misleading information to get me to subscribe to their website and submit to castingsThey have also used this Kohl's model print ad scam to bait me into subscribing to their useless casting site just like they did othersNow I am a good-looking guy and experienced actor and model, and I immediately submit to numerous castings on their site as soon as I first subscribed, and they even told me themselves that they have submitted me for other jobs as wellWhen several weeks went by and not even as much as one word from a casting director, I started to believe that something was amissI would contact the agents and they would repeatedly tell me that "things take time", perhaps to try to cover up their scam and keep taking money from my credit card accountI do agree with that statement to some extent, but I have been in the acting profession long enough to know that if a casting director was genuinely interested in me they would have contacted me right away even if their projects were many weeks or even months away from getting startedWhen I saw the nature of the complaints about this company on the Revdex.com site and did more research about Kohl's modeling jobs, that's when I realized that I had been misled by this companyThis company also uses video testimonials on their website to promote their company, and most likely these videos were made to try to deceive people that their casting company is legit when truth is they are really notFortunately, I was able to get a full refund of all money that was used to subscribe to their worthless casting site after threatening legal action and disputing the charges with PayPal

Casting24/7 has been amazing. I have booked some jobs and of course there have been jobs I did not get. That is how this works. I would say stay positive and let things play out. It is worth it in the end.
This company was the perfect fit for me. I needed guidance and they have helped me start my journey. I am excited to see what the future holds. Thanks!
Fantastic results so far! They have delivered on what they said they could do. I have been wanting to give this a try for many years.
Fantastic results… I am just getting started. I had to go on several auditions before I book my 1ST gig. That is Normal, I understood things will take time. They were upfront about everything. I am happy to have found this company. I really am glad they wanted to work with me. I am the lucky one!
I have wanted to give this a shot for years. I finally got the courage to try. I am glad casting247 was there to guide me. I understood the industry but needed the right connections to get thing going. I don’t care what other have to say this company is awesome! I am living proof that casting247 is only looking to help those who are willing to put in the hard work as well.
I am very pleased with the results I received working with Casting247. I have been in the industry for many years and this company is legit. Modeling and acting is not a get rich quick. Most people who have negative things to say about a company really think things are going to take off overnight. If you are serious about this industry give this company a chance, they can deliver.
I wish someone would have told me to do my research before I signed up to do this. I’ve had my doubts since day 1 and the reviews I found did not help alleviate any of my doubts. After a day of talking with Donna, I hadn’t heard anything for a few weeks. When I asked for an update, she told me that they had submitted my profile to a few listings. It’s been awhile since “they submitted my profile” and I still have yet to hear anything. I am a patient gal but when I am losing money by simply wasting time waiting for something that seems too good to be true, I start to get upset. Would not recommend casting247 and wish I could get my money back.
This company has been a breath of fresh air. I understand every company will have both good and bad things written about them. I have had the best experience. I felt this company was the right fit for me. They have been outstanding. I can only speak for me. I am grateful for the few jobs they have helped me land so far. I am also grateful for the auditions they helped me land that I did not book. This is the business and I am learning new things daily! I can also tell you it feels great to get the call (you booked the job!)
I am a newbie, glad to have be introduced to Casting24/7. Working with them has made my experience a joy. No stress I am enjoying every step. Thanks to the staff I know and other staff members I look forward to knowing for working so hard on my behalf.
I gave it a shot and I am happy with my results. If you truly understand the process of this business you will know this company can deliver. Remember connections are key but, you still have to do your part once you land the audition. If you are ready to jump in with both feet, this company can guide you.
Nothing but great things to say about this company and their staff. I have been in and out of the business and wanted to get more focused. Casting247 has taken the stress out finding projects to submit to. Connections are key. This company is very connected and will get you headed down the right path. We all know you can make great money and that is the attraction for some. Please know this is not a get rich quick… Trust the guidance and let the process work and you will see the results. Thanks, Casting247 for helping me add some major projects to my growing resume!
Casting247 has helped a beginner like me get started in this business. I read some reviews which were not to nice. I know you must use your own judgement; you really can’t believe everything that is written on-line. I myself have written reviews which I exaggerated things a lot, just for the DRAMA of it all. I can say honestly I think they are great, they have done what the said they could do to help me. I am approaching my 5th month and could not be happier. I am glad I took a chance and did not pass this opportunity because of a few not so nice reviews. I am looking forward to a flourishing relationship with this company. Oh yeah… I booked 2 commercials (1) local and (1) national and have done featured background work as well.
I felt they were being honest from the start. They gave me great insight as to how the real modeling and acting business works. I live in the real world and know that I was not going to book a job in a matter of a week. I have been patient. I have worked with the Casting24/7 team for 6 months now. I have had auditions and so far have landed 5 paying jobs. SUPER PLEASED!

I am rejecting this response because:
I feel that I was lied to and manipulated by Casting They lied about being accredited with the Revdex.com when I asked themThey allowed me to believe they were an agency out of *** FL by the same name, who is accredited by the Revdex.comThey lied about having my first print add ready for me so that I would pay their fee and sign on with themThey never helped me to set up a resume or profile as promisedI called to speak with the gentleman who told me these things and he refused to take or return my callsMy supposed agent, Donna told me to contact her yet didn't provide a direct lineWhen I did call for her, I had to call numerous times and leave numerous messagesI only spoke with her twice, the other times she only replied by emailI didn't receive any of the assistance from my "personal agent" that I was told I would have when they were luring me in to sign upI don't believe this company has contact with the casting directors they claim and I have reason to believe the casting calls listed on their job board aren't realI looked up information about the jeans ad with *** that Johnathan from casting told me I had already been chosen for and found out that *** hires its models through agencies in ***, Wisconsin and ChicagoThese agencies include *** ***'s, *** ***, ***, ***, and ***Their website adds that if you are interested in becoming a *** model, you must be hired by one of these specific talent agenciesI feel that because casting in Pennsylvania deliberately misled me into turning down a seasonal job opportunity to allow myself the availability necessary to persue my acting career through them and knowingly lied about having *** as a client as well as lied about *** wanting me for a beginner add paying $850.00, they should extend the courtesy of paying the amount they knowingly lied about, themselvesOtherwise I feel they should be required to provide proof of their servicesI would like to make them aware that I have no intention of letting the matter go unsettled, I intend to take this matter to court with a lawsuit for time and wages lost, (as I am now imployed through a legitimate and reputable talent agency ) as well as to bring public attention to the company's fraudulent misrepresentationI also feel their rating with the Revdex.com should be lowered as a result of them tricking people into believing they have an accreditation I would like to thank you, the Revdex.com for all of your help in trying to settle this matter and will keep you updated as I move forward with legal action.
