Nine 9 Unagency, is a huge scam based on the bait and switch. Tyler Perry just posted a video about these people!

Run very far away from Nine9 Agency! Its hundreds of dollars, they promise you the world and never return your call when you want your money back!

This is a fee based business model where you pay a 499 set up fee to be listed in their database then a monthly fee as well. These fees pay for the staff. Not sure how effective their marketing is on thw business side..I chose to "..think about it..."

One Source Agency is Nine9. I paid them 500 10 years ago and they did nothing for me. Never returned my calls nor would refund my money. The Top agencies dont ask for money. Stay away from them.

Thumbs down comments are from Nine9 company shills. They use legalese to hide behind the baseless claim of "not being a scam." No they are a scam, and liars to boot, and I'm so glad I found out about it before I ever considered giving them one penny.

My wife is grateful too. Stay away from these criminals.

I think your mom will be fine imo since she seems to act like a professional and knew what she was doing when she signed up. From the sound of things and since she decided to refer you, they clearly told her they charge for what they are giving her or she wouldn't have done it, right?

Maybe you could have called ahead rather than just showing up instead of wasting the gas. Given the place could possibly improve their scheduling or something but I don't think that really makes it a scam based on what you wrote here.

first of all if you are late then that's on you. this is a service to assist the aspiring actor/model/ect.

you have to do the work.

This is only a tool for assistance, a leg up basically.You pay for their connections like paying for a computer then paying for wifi every month to enjoy it. its up to you how you utilize these tools.
