A Note About Fraud

Complex has become aware of several scams circulating where individuals are asked to work on photo/video shoots connected with Complex.  Please be aware that these shoots are NOT authorized by Complex, are NOT for Complex content, and are NOT legitimate job opportunities with Complex. 

Photographers: If you are a photographer and you have received an offer that is allegedly from Complex, please consider the following hallmarks of a scam:

  • Not from a Complex email
  • Not directed to your agent of record
  • Claims to be for a fashion editorial shoot
  • Claims to provide models for the shoot
  • Fails to provide a specific creative brief or shooting location
  • Does not follow up with official forms for payment processing

Models: Complex does not book or work with unrepresented models, and does not ask talent appearing in Complex-produced content to book their own travel and lodging, or to pay for it on a reimbursement basis.
