My wife was also approached by their reps on Fri in some NJ mall. She gave them her cell phone and we google Interface Talent next day, pages & pages of red flags, scams ...etc... I didn't even bother calling back to cancel. Director called Sunday, sounded like she was talking to 3th person and shouting "What happen ?" Just by her tone I can tell she's a character ... Glad I did research ahead instead of driving to East Brunswick for a hard sell.
Thank You, Internet !
My son has been involved with Interface for a little over 2 years now, because of Interface, he has been exposed to many acting and modeling seminars and events that he would never have known about. Sure there was an upfront cost, however the jobs he has gotten because of their contacts have paid for those and then some - We are glad that an Interface agent stopped us and we took the time to figure out what was best for our family - Thank you Interface!!!
REASONS TO CALL THIS FIRM A SCAM:
I am writing this to make all those loving parents aware about this firm and reason why people calling it a scam.
First, their marketing rep stops you at a mall and starts appreciating your child's good looks and personality (which parent won't like it??!! For every parent, his child is the most beautiful/ handsome kid in the whole world). The rep calls this company - a modeling company and claims your child has every good reason to be a model or actor and they'll help him to get that golden opportunity. All you need it to sign up a form and provide your contact information. That's all!
Then, you start getting at least 5 missed calls a day (if you're busy to take personal calls during work hour) on your phone..this will continue until you pick up the call. Think about it, does any genuine company/ person follows up so desperately with any customer? Doesn't this happen when the caller has to sell you something and make money?
Finally, you pick up the call and the caller from this company says that they're looking for a model for their client (I was told about Sears and Disney) and my child has been shortlisted for his brown eyes and athletic built. (Actually my husband had signed up in a mall and gave my cell # to contact us; so I thought they took his picture there. My husband confirmed later...they didn't!). He asked me to come with his next day for a meeting with their director and set up the time for 1:00 pm; he also said repeatedly "no cost involved" and gave me the address: 15 Kennedy Blvd, East Brunswick, NJ. I was delighted to hear that and later after speaking with my husband, I got to know they didn't have any pictures. So, my question is how did they know about my child's built and eye color when neither they took his picture at the mall nor we provided one? (I am assuming they make a guess with our full name/ ethnicity).
If this company is not fake or a scam, please improve your marketing policy. There are other avenues where you'll meet parents with serious aspirations of making their child a model or actor. Please don't call parents repeatedly wasting your and our time. I am one of those fortunate ones who read the reviews before going for the appointment with my child and really grateful to parents that shared their instances. I decided not to pursue this appointment.
Business Magnate Warren Buffet says. "I don't invest in things, I don't understand". Please remember this whenever you're not sure about any offered deal or business.
God Bless America!
This place is so unprofessional and is a SCAM! My husband and I took our son to see the "directors" after being approached at the mall over and over again. Finally we decided to just see what it was all about. So when we got there they asked us to fill out a form and wait to be called. 45mins later a female by the name MEGAN at the Framingham location took us to her office. She began talking about our son giving him numerous compliments and said she could see him up on the wall in GAP, Childrens place etc. Of course what every parent wants to hear and dreams of seeing. So predictable. As I told her I checked out some reviews online about the company. I explained my concern that they were more towards the negative side then positive. Immediately she snapped and had a major attitude with me. She was so RUDE, UNPROFESSIONAL and DISRESPECTFUL.. She began to tell me that I didn't believe in my son and didn't think much of him if I did not INVEST with them and throw down thousands of dollars for their photo shoot. HAHA ya right! I will tell everyone to STAY AWAY FROM this place!! After we left she must have told a co-worker what had transpired and a male began to call my phone and my husbands with a restricted phone number,...When my husband answered it was a male that kept saying "POO POO PANTS" to him over and over again...unbelievable and pathetic that they had to call us and continue to HARASS us even after we left!!! I am going to try and go all the way and BLACKEN this companies name! INTERFACE YOU ARE A SCAM!
To Whom It May Concern,
Every single person in here is complaining and saying this company is a fraud. The only reason i believe you guys think you have been scammed is because you clearly did not even bothered to read what the contract says. Yes, you do go in and meet with someone that is going to try to convince you and try to pursue you to leave at least a deposit. Yes, that is what a true sales person does for a living but you would not be able to understand that. They are definitely not putting a gun on your head forcing you to take out your card and pay.
Furthermore, if you did leave a deposit and felt "pressured" to pay, the least you can do is follow their policies. Not go home and start making assumptions that you have been scammed and even try to make a hard working company look like they are "scamming" people. Why do you sign papers in writing, that are highlighted , without even reading what it says. And then the day after you turn around and because of your incompetence you feel you were "pressured" . Please people think before you start making assumptions, because at the end of the day if you sign something and you wonder why you felt scammed is because you are stupid enough not to read.
In conclusion, the only smart person in here is J M. To all of you that have felt scammed or think this is a fraud, follow this person's wise words. No one forces you to do anything, and if they ever did, you are all adults. If you let someone "pressure" you is because you are definitely not in your right mind. Grow up and take full responsibility for your incompetence and your inability to read.
To the dreamers,
I would first like to reference astha A. who does not have an understanding of what the term "Fraud" means legally. I bet she would also be surprised that making a public statement accusing someone of fraud is.... I will let her guess or she can research the proper terminology when she looks up fraud. If this was my company she would also need to look into a lawyer.
Second, every single person on here should stop complaining and take responsibility for their own actions. No one ripped you off nor did anyone make you pay for something you did not want. I do not know how many kids become rich and famous from this company but I do know that with or without them there is relatively no chance your kids are going to be stars. Every single one of you believed what you wanted to believe. Unfortunately your kids are not as special, talented or attractive as you think they are.
I spoke with a representative of this company. I thought she had a great demeanor and was very nice to my child. Unlike most of you, I declined because I thought about my child first and myself second. My kid has actually done commercials and has been recruited by the people who put kids on TV. She was not interested in doing it again. I would not pressure a child into doing something for my own personal benefit or do something that is not aligned with the principles I am trying to teach her through example. I am not against nor do I have an issue with this company. I think the issue, from the posts here, are from false hopes of dreams and glamour that you as parents wanted without asking your children what they want.
My suggestion is that you, as "Adults" take responsibility for your own actions. If you and your children truly want this then keep trying. Success rarely occurs before hard work and dedication. Basically what I am saying is if you want your children to be successful as model, a singer, a student or most importantly as a person you need to portray the attributes that successful individuals have. Blaming others for your temporary setbacks, which should be expected before success, is teaching your children an awful lesson.
Hello all, my name is Godis, InterFACE Director of Communications, and I am sorry to hear that some of you do not have a positive outlook on our company, and I think it may stem from not entirely understanding our business model. I would be happy to address some of the concerns you all have posted about InterFACE. First, please do note that InterFACE is NOT, and has NEVER claimed to be a talent or modeling agency or management company. InterFACE is a TALENT MARKETING FIRM that works with aspiring models, actor, singers and dancers to help them create the marketing tools they need to be promoted to modeling and talent agencies, who can in turn, request our clients to participate in opportunities in the entertainment industry.

InterFACE is in no way a scam, and we display up to the minute company news and client requests on our website (www.interfacetalent.com) and social media pages (Facebook-www.Facebook.com/InterFACENetwork) (Twitter-www.twitter.com/interfacenetwk), which we urge you to visit and review. We do offer a several photography and marketing packages for those who are interested in creating marketing tools that will be used to promote them to industry professionals, we also offer a cancellation policy for those who chose not to move forward with our services.
Our program works and I would love the opportunity to explain the framework of our company in more detail to anyone who has any concerns about our business. Please contact me at any time to discuss InterFACE further at: email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks everyone for sharing again.
I did got the full refund as promised by their contrast. But you have to follow their policy. Send them written cancellation within 3 days and send it with return receipt. It says
Enough said by everyone. We also lost close to $2800 in their NJ location. Sad thing is that they are allowed to recruit in big malls even with all this scams. I was stopped by their people three times in one of the biggest malls (King of Prussia mall) near Philadelphia. These malls need to stop them from finding their victims in public places.
