This is a scam where a person pretending to be a modeling agent says he wants you for a catalog modeling job for a client of his. He claims he will pay you about $2500. He will mail you a fake money order and then tell you to forward some of the money to the photographers studio

This is his first message:

This is the second message he will send if you reply to him:

"Thanks for your fast repsonse..how are you and your lovely family doing there i 'm really thrilled.....the Job is Urgent so you are to get back to me today so that i can arrange on
how to get you the part payment
The date for the shooting is not fixed, i will have to make
arrangement for that ahead from now, i will email you the exact
date for the shooting a week before as soon as the arrangement is
completed with our client. Like i said you have 12 Fashion outfits
to cover, types of clothes are jeans and jackets. As part of my
working policy and ethics, i receive part payment from any client
before i proceed with any job and balance immediately after the
shooting, this is to identify a serious client and ascertain the
job, i hope you comprehend this fact.
I've contacted our client and they said part payment and studio
fee will be paid, until we receive and confirm part payment we will
not shoot, your part payment is $500 and the balance in cash after
the shooting,I hope you understand ? Send me your payment details
as to wish our client is to mail out your part payment to you below
Name on check :
Complete Mailing address,
zipcode :
Cell/Phone number :
After we confirm the part payment,we will all have a fixed date for
the shooting that best fits ..make-up,hair etc would be taken care
of at the Studio,remember you can come along with anyone of your
choice,get intouch with your required payment details
The payment would be mailed directly to you alongside the studio
fee and immediately you have it i will instruct you and give you
the studio agents name you are to send the studio rental fee
to.Then you will be paid the balance immediately after the
shooting, I hope this is quite clear.Please I'd like you to check
your email on a regular basis, i might have updates for you.also i'm not in the state right cos am out for some business trip in uk....if you dont mind calling my number in uk (+44702 405 4190)i will be looking forward to read from you soon
