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.

  1. Folks should also be aware that Active Male Models, LLC, owned by Russell Claxon, is a modeling scam. The scam used to be operated by Models Today, LLC, until the owner’s criminal history came out in the media. He has been convicted of promotion of prostitution, theft by deception, and seven counts of criminal possession of forged instruments. And yet he’s still allowed to operate!

    In 2009, a bunch of guys who “worked” for Models Today, LLC, and Russell Claxon, were alleging sexual misconduct, solicitation for prostitution, and a lot of other horrible things. Because his name was attached to the modeling scam, he began using variations of his own name on Myspace: Russ David “The Model Seeker” (Myspace). As well, he began using the alias guy4you2know / guy4you2know1, posing as a young, athletic gay “model.”

    I add this comment because Claxon’s case sparked a nationwide media buzz about modeling scams — in particular his own.

    Here are links to the news stories about him, from WHAS 11 in Louisville:
