This is the same old scam. It took me a short Google search (“talent call review”) to figure it out, but I did unfortunately reply to the initial email. I replied to an ad on Craigslist saying they were casting for the CBS show “Scorpian”. First they sent me an email from (email address removed by HolySmoke.org admin), with: Thank you for your interest in the casting call for the CBS series “Scorpion”! We have received your email and we’re now replying back to you. This hit drama show from the producer of “Hawaii Five-0” is now casting nine roles for an upcoming episode which begins filming in Mid-April. We need to ask you a few quick questions to determine if you might be right for any of the roles being cast. 1) What decade were you born? 2) What age range would you be best able to play? 3) What’s your gender? 4) Briefly describe any previous acting experience you’ve had, such as student films, online videos, television acting, or live theater. 5) What is a daytime cell phone number where you can be reached? Please reply back as soon as possible with the answers to the above questions. We will read over your response and determine if any roles might be suitable for you. We look forward to hearing back from you today. Sincerely, Megan Hoffman Talent Call I responded, foolishly. Then I got from a different email address ((email address removed by HolySmoke.org admin)) saying I would be right for a certain role, along with a link to their site. I got suspicious there because the layout was terrible, but mostly because they were asking for $18.95. Rule number one of signing up with a casting agent is that you never pay them any money up front. So I stopped from there.
