  1. Alright, I just contacted that website and explained that f the casting call is not legit, I was not aware. I was sent the information from Jha Briones who also sent the information to several other websites. We are contacted frequently by casting agencies who ask us to post information about an casting call so I had no reason to think that this case would be any different.

    If the casting call is not correct, it is not because our site was creating a hoax, but rather because we were given inaccurate information.

    I love how people just say things without contacting the source, someone could have emailed me before accusing us of creating a hoax, ugh!
