Craigslist Modeling Ads to Be Cautious Of

Craigslist is an excellent resource for not only potential employees but employers as well. It provide an effective advertising platform for both. Unlike where you are required to signup for an account to post a job offering Craigslist does not require this. Also, they allow the poster to use a disguised email address. So when you are looking at the ads on Craigslist where people are looking for models please make sure you look to see if they listed a real email address. Now, if they did not use their real email address but instead disguised it then it may be because of SPAM and this is totally understandable.

Check the ad to make sure they included a real name, a legitimate and established website address or even a telephone number. In case something was to happen law enforcement can use this information to their advantage. If none of the above exists then I would be cautious as to what information you provide them. If they simply are asking you to send in your pictures then be very careful as you do not want any personal information falling into the wrong hands. I have attached a PDF file of actual jobs that have been posted to Craigslist without any of the information I stated above. Again, this is for information purposes only and sound judgement should be used on your part.

Here are some examples of the emails, do they set off any alarm bells?

Models Needed for new Portfolio (Lubbock)

I am looking for models in the Lubbock area for situational shoots so that I may test out an array of old equipment (such as wooden cameras, antique setups etc).

-Availability (Nights, Weekends, Daytime etc)
-Expirience level (Have you modeled before – if so what type?)

I do not ask for photographs as others do, if I see in your information that I would like to use you then I will ask for either a quick face-to-face meeting or phone call to go over any questions prior to setting up studio time. Please note that all photos will remain my sole property unless otherwise discussed/arranged. Aside from the quality of photos taken, comfort of the model is paramount to a successful shoot, I also urge that a friend or associate accompany you to any shoot.
