Recent attempts have been made to defraud individuals by the unauthorized use of the GUESS name and brand, via e-mail communications from various websites or individuals claiming to represent GUESS. These communications claim that GUESS is seeking models for casting calls or photo shoots in various countries worldwide. In most cases, the communications request that the models provide photos, measurements and other personal information and in some instances, they request the models to send upfront payments to them or to third parties. Please be advised that GUESS does not conduct its model searches or photo shoots in this manner and does not collect or authorize any third parties to collect any payments from its models for expenses. We recommend that individuals receiving such communications forward any e-mails they receive to GUESS's for handling and refrain from becoming involved with these third parties.
