Description

Transcontinental Talent (TCT), a website with claims of scouting for future models is in the scanner's eye in this investigation carried out by Dateline-NBC. Having secured entry into the company as a scout and a model, NBC reporters unravel a story of fraud, misrepresentation, false promises and deceptive practices. The investigation finds that TCT scouts are hired "with little or no industry experience". Furthermore, would-be models are pressured into spending around $2,000 to be featured on the TCT website.
