London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 16, 2012 -- UK Models/Bluerooms have recorded a slight drop in negative feedback in their fight against scam modeling agencies and the people that represent them.
A Spokesman from the company says, 'Although we are pleased with what appears to be progress in our fight against the crooks that blight our industry we know we cannot afford to rest on our laurels. A reduction in cases is just that, a reduction, our ultimate goal is to have a blank webpage where complaints were recorded until the scams ceased to exist. Although people may say that is more of an ideal than a goal we are determined to keep with the initiative and track the unscrupulous operators wherever they may go. The pressure we are exerting means they can never truly rest easy and that alone give us the impetus we need.'
Although modeling scams and associated con tricks have blighted the industry for many years, progress is being made and the number of active sham operations is decreasing according to some reports. A possible shortfall in this reduction could be perhaps attributed to the rise of Internet use and in particular the social networking sites on which the less than reputable agencies can perhaps attract a wider, more tech savvy audience.
The Spokesman goes onto say, 'The biggest problem we are facing in our fight against the scammers is the rise of technology. Whereas previously they would have advertised mainly in magazines and newspapers they are now turning to the Internet. A lot of the potential models we see at UK Models Bluerooms are quite young and to a certain degree quite impressionable. We would advise parents to carefully check the credentials of any modelling agency they deal with, the internet is obviously the best place to start with review sites and well established agency websites being good sources of information'.
Our Spokesman concludes by saying, 'The best way of avoiding these scams is to check, check and check again before parting with any money. All the information on how to avoid the pitfalls are well publicised, on our websites and across the World Wide Web, there really is no excuse.'
