IS THIS EMAIL FROM MORIS TALENT HUNT?

Unfortunately, a scammer may email you and either pretend to be from Moris Talent Hunt, or contact you through the site with a special (and fake) offer.

Here are a few signs of a scam email:

  • Email in no proper format, poor spelling or grammar.
  • The person sending the email is asking you for money
  • The email claims to be from Moris Talent Hunt, but the email address does not include @moristalenthunt or @mthemail or @morisemail
  • The offer they are making you is generic (e.g. a 'magazine photoshoot') with no specific details.

If you receive any email that you're not sure about, please contact us. Do not deal with the person directly.

HOW DO I MAKE SURE AN AUDITION IS SAFE?

  • Check on the site if the Job is verified or not, if other details like email, phone number, social media are verified or not.
  • Check exactly what is required of you before attending an audition.
  • Use Google to research the company or person that you are auditioning for.
  • Check the location of the audition. If it's in a hotel or bar, or at someone's house, it’s warning sign.
  • Take a friend, parent, or colleague with you to the audition.

HOW DO I ENSURE THE AGENT IS GENUINE?

A number of agents use Moris Talent Hunt to sign new talent. Having an agent can be a great way to find extra work, but you need to be sure that the person claiming to be an agent is legitimate.

Always research an agent thoroughly before signing with them. Be wary of anyone who claims they will make you a star overnight, or who asks you to pay a fee. If an agency asks for a fee that is not mentioned in their casting call on moristalenthunt.com, please let us know.

Occasionally you might come across an agency that is advertising a workshop, but it should not be a requirement of you joining the agency. They may also ask you to get a new headshot taken, but you should be allowed to choose the photographer hence, we always recommend to get professionals advice for your career, our Exclusive Talent enjoys all set of services and benefits to a better career.
