Greetings from the desk of Sheriff Chuck Curry, Recently we've received a few calls regarding modeling scams on Facebook, Instagram and Snap chat. They usually start by saying they are looking for models for brand name items or commercials ; hey may even be trying to "grow a data base". Soon after you think you've booked "a gig", they may respond with "those commercials have been cast, and the music videos are on hold, but there’s still an opportunity for you to appear in some movies…if you’re interested.” Little by little, it came out that these films are of a pornographic nature. THEY will promise you big and fast money. THEY will tell you you're talented. THEY will tell you that you're pretty. THEY will feed on insecurities. THEY will then threaten you if you don't go through with it.. Here are some reminders to help you avoid talent and modeling scams: 1. There’s no harm in someone teaching acting classes or selling head shots, as long as that’s what they are advertising. If you thought you were going to an audition or a meeting to discuss representation, but the conversation is all about you buying something, that is a bait-and-switch! 2. Some casting calls may be “no experience necessary,” but they should be exactly that: a casting call. You come in, fill out some paperwork, get your photo taken, and are perhaps recorded on video. They’ll call if they decide to hire you. No one tries to sell you anything, and there’s no fee to audition. 3. Reputable model and talent agencies are highly selective. If you show up and they are immediately willing to sign you regardless of your experience or suitability, question their motives—especially if they ask for money. 4. Bona fide agencies don’t require you to take their classes or use their photographer. They may provide a list of recommended coaches or photographers in your area, but they should not pressure you to use a specific one, or try to sell you something in their agency agreement. 5. Legitimate agents make a commission off the gigs they find for you. If they engage in hard-sell techniques for classes, photos, contests or representation, beware. That’s how they’re making their money, not by finding you work. Again, if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. Most people that work in this industry have an agent that seeks jobs in the best interest of their client and they've had legitimate training in modeling or acting. #stophumantrafficking #modelingscam #notevenonce #cast #getasecondopinion

Greetings from the desk of Sheriff Chuck Curry​ For Immediate Release This morning at 1042 hrs. the Flathead County 911 center received a call from a construction worker at the Zip Trip in Hungry Horse. The worker advised a male had just dropped off a two year old child with construction workers, requesting they “get him back to his parents”. A short time later a stolen vehicle report was received from the Hungry Horse Chapel. The caller stated they were going to church and had left their 2 year old child sleeping in the back seat of their car while they took items into the church. When they returned to the car to get their child the vehicle and child were gone. The child was uninjured, and was returned to the parents. An attempt to locate was broadcast for the vehicle and a Columbia Falls Police Officer observed it on Highway 2 in Columbia Falls near Super One Foods. As the officer was attempting to stop it the vehicle crashed into another car. The driver of the stolen vehicle and the driver of the other car were uninjured. The suspect was taken into custody without incident. The suspect is identified as Isaiah Lee Maura, 22 years of age. Marua is a Kalispell area transient. He was transported to the Flathead County Detention Center initially charged with Theft, Kidnapping, and Criminal endangerment. The incident remains under investigation by the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office.

Greetings from the desk of Sheriff Chuck Curry, Scam Alert! This just in... Always call the number on your card to verify and don’t click the link. The king of the link shorteners right now is bit.ly, which is the default shortener on Twitter and accounts for more than 75 percent of all short URLs on the service. Every month, bit.ly shortens about 1 billion links. For spammers, that's one huge honey jar. ... It could be a TechCrunch post, or it could be a spam site. The phone number for this, came back to a non-working Verizon number.
