How do I make sure an audition is safe?

- 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, this should raise some red flags.

- Take a friend, parent, or colleague with you to the audition.

- Don't be afraid to say 'no' to anything that you aren't comfortable doing.

- Always read contracts carefully before signing them.

Here are a few signs of a scam email:

- The spelling or grammar is very poor

- The person sending the email is asking you for money

- The email claims to be from a known company, but the email address does not include the original website, like @mtv.com

- The offer they are making you is generic with no specific details.

If you think you might be dealing with a scammer, or you've already been scammed, please contact us at support@kidscasting.com or talk to your local authorities.
