Acting and modeling scams are widespread across the globe, and the trend does not seem to be getting any better. More and more people are vulnerable to unscrupulous individuals and companies who make false claims of making people a star or obtaining jobs for them. One very disturbing trend has been websites who blatantly steal casting and auditions information from free websites and then charge people exorbitant fees for the very same information. One such website is 2011AUDITIONS.COM – which has been copying the hard work of the publisher of AB Media Publishing, LLC.
2011AUDITIONS.COM copies the information word-for-word, but leaves out the casting directors information and extras registration information. They then have a form to fill out below their stolen text, asking visitors to enter personal information. And after the information is entered, one can only speculate what they do with that information.
