Isidingo Warns Against A Scam Casting Call On Blackberry

There is a message doing the rounds on Blackberry Messenger and production company Endemol South Africa is warning young women against fake casting calls from a sham modelling agency luring young women under the pretense of "acting on Isidingo".
The message reads; 

"Want to be an actor in Isidingo!!! Females 14 to 21 year old White Indian or Colored required for leading role in the series. Ping me if interested!"

"It has come to our attention that the agency in question is being misrepresented," says Endemol South Africa.
"When a character is developed for the soap and an actor for that part is needed; there is an audition process that takes place. We work with reputable agencies with standard processes that are followed,"
 Khanyisa Jali, Isidingo's casting coordinator had this to say; 
"We only deal with reputable casting agencies that have been in the industry for years, we never deal with individuals,"

"We would like to advise people; especially young girls; to take note and be cautious when responding to casting advertisements. Isidingo is a family show and will never ask individuals for nude pictures. We advise you to please contact reputable casting agencies in future."

Pumla Hopa,Isidingo's executive producer;

"We condemn this act in the strongest terms,"

"We advise young women to scrutinise information carefully before falling prey to vicious opportunists"

Remember, DO NOT pay a casting agency to sign you up and/or take compromising pictures with a stranger even if they claim to be a legit agent.
