I received a similar letter from Metropolitan Modeling Agency in Paris, France. Same motive. Asking for money to pay for a registration fee, and Cost of Transfer fee. Totally $1107.00, I should have known better. Today, I send $200.00 and feel so small and angry for doing it. I can't believe that I fell for it!!

I have copies of the emails sent back and forth as well as the receipts. I even called the agency in Paris, called the Bank to verify the process, thought that I had done all my homework. Searched for the "quote agent" on-line and found him. Search Facebook and he was there. Even was given a phone number that was a burner phone and a bank account to transfer the money too. This was a prepaid Amex Card!!

This individual even used the Tim Baxter the CEO of Samsung and provided me with a "certificate" that states that I would be paid. The agency is a real agency in Paris!! I am expecting to hear back from them within the next few days - if the money is transferred to my account. One thing is that they are extremely persistent!!

I am so angry at myself and I am a sucker!!!!
