I last dealt with V123 9 years ago. It said so when I looked myself up on their site just now. I know I pulled my listing all that time ago, but I was still there. And because I was I've suddenly been getting audition notices from them, two or so every day! Crap on a cracker.

I "chatted" with a rep online and they'll remove my listing now. Phew. It was like having a creepy old acquaintance show up begging you to have a drink with them for old times sake. NO!

Sheesh.

Same story here - about starting to get auditions after being a non-paying member for several years. Once a year I was getting a private invitation to something, but now, the system is matching and sending and my blood pressure is going up...

I thought I would take a look at the auditions coming in. Stressful. No budgets. No usage information to determine a fair budget. I've been responding to some with links to the VOratecard.com page.

I'm waiting for them to figure out what is going on with the invites and cut it off. If they don't go away, I'll have to do that "chat."

I've asked why I'm getting email notifications as I turned that feature off. Apparently "off" doesn't work and they don't know how to stop it yet.

annnnd this is why you beta test before going live.

I received about 14 auditions for a 12-year-old African American boy before I blocked them in Gmail. Haven't been a member for some time now.

Only 14? I got at least 50.

To be fair, that only happened with that job and one other and they had it sorted out in one day.
