A New York City Judge ordered scamster Bradley Poster to pay more than $1 million for cheating unemployed actresses and models during the past six years with his fake agency, according to DNAinfo.DNAInfo reported that according to the Department of Consumer affairs, Poster advertised supposedly available jobs for actresses and models on Craigslist and Facebook. 

He also set up shop in Midtown West and called his “agency” WMT Model & Talent Network.

He would lure the girls in to take head shots and create fake model profiles. Then, he’d charge them “consumer fees” for those services before they even landed a job.

He never helped any of the models or actresses actually find employment. More than seven-dozen complaints were filed against him.
