    There are a ton of agencies with that name. Chances are good that yes, it's a scam. If they ask you to pay money for anything, it's a scam.

    Check out the details on the card she gave you. Some big companies do work this way, picking out real people on the street. 'Plus' signs are that you were with your Mom and that you appear not to have been harassed.

    Keep your Mom on board, keep checking, take your Mom with you to any photo-shoot, and NEVER pay out any money for a 'folio' or promises of contacts.... if they genuinely want you, they won't ask you for money.

    And NEVER take your clothes off for filming, even if your Mom is with you.

    Check the agency out on the Better Buisness Bureau.

    Go in for an interveiw, if you have to pay a dime, they are no good.

    Check with your local Chamber of Commerce and/or the Better Business Bureau to see if they are registered. If they say they are National, they'll be listed as a Business with Credentials. Just proceed with caution and find out who is on their client list.
