Not getting what I was told my daughter would get for the money we paid.
MJ can sell sand in a desert and make everything sound amazing. To many empty promise's never filled. In the past if I called she made time to talk which is the appropriate thing to do considering all of the money I have invested in this company with my daughter. I'm sorry but that is really upsetting to me. I'm not sure how out of an 8,9,10 hour day's that she says she puts in she can't make 5 mins to touch base. They are not addressing any of the emails I have asked about. They told me that last weekend she was shooting, they wanted to a Halloween event well that didn't matter anyway we never got a call to do it surprise surprise. We were supposed to go on the road for a runway show this weekend but guess what another excuse why we can't go. The other day she basically said because I didn't like the photographer they no longer have a photographer for her. But in our previous conversations, she said there were 2 photographers that they had ready to go besides the 2 I have already used. I didn't tell her he took terrible photo shots I told her he doesn't know how to train and that's what they hired him to do. I also don't know why she says there's no one to shoot her now when I have givin her a name and number of other excellent photographers and trainers that samantha works very well with. He would be an asset to there company and would be a great trainer for new models in this area. We also gave her the benefit of the doubt by waiting and not saying anything to her. We wanted to see if this weekend would be another push and can you believe it that's exactly what happened...PUSH! I have been signed up with them since February I can tell you what I have received since that date. I have received 3 boxes which out of all the boxes there has been missing pieces which I'm told are on there way which they never were. I had a total of 1 shot done in Miami which we were told was a man so it shocked me that he was no longer a he but a she. The 2nd was a very unprofessional photographer who basically wore her PJ's and holes in her socks smelling like an ashtrays after that I couldn't get her out the door fast enough because my daughter was already getting sick. 3rd one was just plain out not a happy guy and wasn't teaching her anything like he was supposed to.. 4th Samantha's Uncle Sam he was great. He is now off to college and cannot do this anymore. Fifth time was in Tampa She was great as well. Sixth was Chicago and that was a joke hair stylist and makeup artist left in the middle of the shoot not even saying they were leaving. An this last photo shoot with a nice guy but awkward and definitely not a trainer if that's what they hired him for. As far as portfolio I never received and VIP card to get into the shows never received resume and paid commercial nope. I paid for a mandatory the box of shirts that were ordered months ago actually on May 28th and said delivery NO LATER than June 2nd I never received. I order things from China and they don't take that long to get to me and it's coming from in the US. I have asked her numerous times for all receipts and she told me at first she would get them to me and I had to sit there and basically haras her until she told me that she doesn't have them. It is against the law for them not to produce them to me according to kids casting. I also asked David to send me the magazines Samantha was in which I should have gotten an seen and never did, again had to ask for them multiple times from him and still nothing. I have never been told so many excuses from being sick multiple times to my dog bit her managers foot so they needed to push back to I need to leave to check on my daughter in a different state to this last one that one of there managers parent passed away. It got to the point that in the end I didn't believe anything they told me. I wish it would of worked I need to work with a company that follows through with what they say there going to do and in a timely manner.

Not returning call's, not returning text's and repetitive broken promises
I've been waiting to get my daughter showcased and a photo shoot as of March 2017. It is now July in which a shoot was supposed to happen. Following that shoot, was to be a set up of her showcasing for Aug 27 supposedly leading to paid job's. MJ has been saying so many promising things (when she would call back or text) I have all text's and call's recorded) but nothing had ever fell through. There's also been email contacts from many different people such as a Kate, who gives attitude and additional broken promises. I paid for a $300 packet where my daughter was promised to be showcased in two showcases and should have had a professional shoot where she was to receive clothes and calls from promising agent's. I simply want this company taken down from any site's such as Facebook, kids casting (where we connected) and dealt with appropriately.

No showcase! No refund!
I paid $200 for my daughter, through ilookusa m, to be in the National Modeling Showcase August 14, 2015 and she has yet to be in a showcase nor have I received a refund. She originally was suppose to be in the showcase in mid August, however, the date was pushed back. I was given the option of another date, but couldn't make it because I had to drop my son off at college. The supposed person MJ claimed she understood and gave me the option of 2 other dates. When I chose the date it was pushed back again. Since that time the dates have continued to be pushed back for one reason or another. MJ did not want to compete with some other show, she's had surgery, she's moved and gotten another job....the last time her whole so called crew got sick on a trip back from where ever. The only thing she hasn't told me is that someone has died. Each time it's a different excuse as to why my daughter has not been in the showcase. When I asked for a refund I was told I would receive one, then after weeks of waiting, I was told by the way did you fill out the refund form. I filled out the form and still no refund and no response. I finally filed a claim with PayPal and of course this MJ responds telling me oh we had a money order ready for, but now you've filed a claim with PayPal asking do I want them to send the money order or go through PayPal. Then I was told they are a nonprofit and PayPal won't give me my money back. I was told if I canceled my claim she would pay for a hotel room at the next showcase and she would let my family in for free. So like a dummy I cancel the PayPal claim. Now it has been almost 2 months and still no showcase or refund on top of I'm out hundreds of dollars for getting my daughter's hair done each time she was suppose to be in the showcase and money for outfits and shoes. If you were considering being in the National Modeling Showcase beware, of them and ilookusa.
