Is Global Talent Management (GTM) Australia a legit company or am i being scammed?

I recently got a call from a company called Global Talent Management. I have heard that if a company asks for money straight up it is most likely a scam. Although i have been talking to them through email and over the phone and the only fee they have mentioned is a $249 booking fee for my showreel, where they have also mentioned that they are willing to invest $1200 into my showreel if i pay this fee. Has anyone delt with this company before or know anything about it. Thanks.

Hi, I'm wondering the same thing about the company. I want it to be real because I just sent through my payment. Have you tried calling them and they have actually answered and not just their machine?
