Please be aware that there are several scams operating on YouTube that send private messages to children offering jobs in modeling, music or other areas related to a child’s demonstrated interest. However, the actual intent of these scams is to meet kids on a live-camera website and get them to undress.
A talent-scam artist may point to the website of a real agency and claim to work for that agency. But do NOT believe it! If you are unsure, look for the agency listed in the Better Business Bureau where you can find the agency’s phone number and contact them directly.
