The selection or signing of a new model is done by person with more authority at the agency, like the president of the agency or head of the New Faces division.
Scouting may be performed in public, but selecting is usually not; it is more likely to be performed in private, with the potential models receiving a notification from the agency. Selection scams are closely affiliated to scouting scams. It is a two-section process. First individuals are spotted by fake scouts; then they are selected by fictitious agencies. image-1
