Depends where you live. To find an agency that won't scam you requires that you do research for your area. If you follow the local news media (newspaper, TV), there is a good chance information on local agencies will show up there. The other way is to follow the local fashion print advertising. When you start to see which stores use local models regularly, you can start making phone calls. Call the store and find out who handles the advertising. You can hope that the person at the store who does this can direct you to their advertising agency, their photographer, or may even direct you to the modeling agency they use.
