  • According to information provided by the local business principals, Prolific Ventures, Inc., does business as Emodel of Columbus. Emodel of Columbus is a franchise operation. The principals of the Columbus franchise also operate a franchise in Miami Beach, Florida. The franchises are also affiliated with EModel business offices in Orlando, Florida and financial/ legal administrative offices in Washington, D.C. As of Nov. 13, 2002, the BBB of Central Florida reported the following additional information concerning EMODEL.COM, 1701 Park Center Dr., Orlando, FL:"This company offers an employment opportunity to become a model and/or talent scout. Scouts receive training to recruit potential talent at shopping malls, amusement parks, beaches, conventions or other ordinary places. Scouts receive commissions for anyone who decides to sign up and pay eModel to have his or her photographs appear on the company's web site. On February 15, 2002, information posted on the company's web indicates that Options Talent Group has purchased the modeling side of eModel's business and eModel will continue to be a web development company. This information was confirmed in a letter from Jay Wallace, in a letter to the BBB dated February 25th, 2002. Mr. Wallace's letter also stated that eModel will continue to hire scouts. A separate report is available on Options Talent Group."On Nov. 13, 2002, BBB Washington, D.C., reported the following additional information concerning eModel.com, 2002 National Press Bldg., NW, Washington, DC, 20045:"The firm states that it maintains an office in Orlando, FL for the primary business location of the firm, and administers the financial and legal aspects of the business through the Washington, DC location. According to information provided by the firm, eFashionShow.com operates a wholly owned subsidiary called eModel.comInc. eModel.com was formerly known as Why Model.com. In June, 2001, the company advised the BBB that it no longer does business as either efashioshow.com or Why Models. The firm's web sites indicate that it provides access and communication among models, agencies and on-line advertisers. Models can be listed on-line with the firm for a fee of $395, plus a monthly service fee. The firm claims to make use of model scouts nationwide to identify models for their listings. The model scout program requires a payment of $395, that is reportedly refundable upon the enrollment of 10 models. In June, 2001, the firm advised the BBB that it ceased charging scouts any payment or fee early this year. The BBB has contacted the firm for further information about its operating practices and services, but no response to that contact has been received at the BBB."For further information on the Florida and Washington DC offices of the the firm, you may contact:BBB of Central Florida, Inc.WWW: http://www.orlando.bbb.orgEmail: info@orlando.bbb.orgPhone: (407)621-3300Fax: (407)786-2625151 Wymore Road, Ste. 100Altamonte Springs, FL 32714 andBBB of Metro Washington DC and Eastern PennsylvaniaWWW: http://www.dc.bbb.orgEmail: info@dc.bbb.orgPhone: (202)393-8000Fax: (202)393-11981411 K St., NW, 10th FloorWashington, DC 20005 -3404
