We called Mr. Steve Huffman at Moda, A Model & Talent Company, to seek clarification regarding this matter, and he indicated that (614) 475-4636 was the phone number for Moda, A Model & Talent Company, but his business was not affiliated with Wilhelmina Scouting Network and the information provided by telephone directory information service was a mistake. As of December 9, 2003, the 411 telephone directory information service lists both (614) 475-4636 and (614) 475-2859 as valid telephone numbers for Moda, A Model & Talent Company. As of Oct. 21, 2003, the BBB system has separate BBB reports referencing the company name Wilhelmina Scouting Network at addresses in Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Louisiana, California, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina and Colorado.
