Ugh. I responded to a ad about being an extra in a film, thinking why not, it's a little extra money. I see those ads all the time but this one actually sounded like it might be authentic. I got a call yesterday wanting me to come to an office to meet them, and I knew as soon as I heard it that it was probably just a scam. And in fact it was. The guy behind the desk was a total stereotype, slicked back hair and all and he recited off this speech that he sounds like he has to give 100 times a day. Off course you have to have headshots if you want to be an extra and of course you have to buy the headshots from them. SCAM! I'm so mad I even wasted the time going there.
