There are a number of reputable modelling agencies in operation. But many exist that are not legitimate. Scams are rife in this industry, so it’s important to be informed.
You should know two important rights that are available under the Consumer Protection Act, 2002, when dealing with modelling agencies:
If you have signed a contract and the services have never been made available, you can cancel the contract and get your money back.
You have 10 days after you receive a copy of the agreement or when all the services are available to cancel it, whichever is later. The best way to cancel is by sending a written notice of cancellation by registered mail, fax or e-mail.
