Alexander Castro

Got an email from a person claiming to be a casting director named Alexander Castro. He wrote proposing a "unique opportunity" of a crypto currency commercial and offered a large sum of money. Initially, this sum was described as $**** with $*** up front for a clothing allowance – which should have been a red flag already. The email I received when I ‘got the job’ changed this amount and said I’d be getting A check for $**** from which a $*** ‘booking payment’ fee would be deducted up-front. As an actor who recently joined a new casting website, I assumed I had submitted for this commercial when I received the first email, and sent in my head shots and two photos as requested. I also gave my home address (not so wise of me), references, and social media account information, which I’m now pretty sure was used to vet targets who look like they might have money in the bank. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but once I received the ‘acceptance’ email, the fishiness became apparent. I googled his name, which led me to this BBB scam. Apparently, how it works is they’ll send you a fake check, then send you to a fake fashion website to purchase your wardrobe. The check will never clear, and you’ll be out however much you spent on this website (and they’ll get your credit card info, presumably). Here’s the contents of the first email I received:Hello,Thank you for responding to our ad, We got your contact details from a directory of all Actors/Models based on the past gigs/events you must have taken part or applied for in the recent times.

Share Review:
Yes it is. Based on the user review published on PropertyFraud.com, it is strongly advised to avoid Alexander Castro in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Alexander Castro. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike PropertyFraud.com, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Alexander Castro is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
