In late August I was selected to be featured in their magazine. I was contacted by the assistant editor, Diana. She stated that being featured would be free but there was a $250.00 cost to cover the photographer. I made this payment through PayPal business on August 19, 2017. I was asked to select two t-shirts from their company to wear for the shoot, which did ship and they were received on September 20, 2017. She then stated she would get in touch with the photographer and he would contact me. The next day on the 21st she did a group email with myself and the photographer. In which he was not in town at the time. We finally got around to do a photoshoot on October 23, 2017. We were rained out and needed to do another shoot shortly after. They were edited and submitted fully on November 27, 2017. They have not responded since. I was told when I paid, that the money was not to be featured, but to pay for the photographer. When I spoke with my photographer, in which, we still talk. He said that they were only.payimg him $50, and they have not paid him or responded to him either. I have called, emailed, and messaged via Instagram several times, as well as my photographer. We have received no response whatsoever. At this point, I simply want my money back. I’ve searched for more stories similar to mine and have found several cases with this company. This is one big scam, and it is flat out disgusting.
