I have several Models defined such as RescueFormsAdministration.Models.Account that I have given the name AccountModel and a wrapper Model RescueFormsAdministration.Models.CreateAccountViewModel that contains the Account and other Models in order to pass it to one View. This works until I run it and then I get the error below:
 
"The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'RescueFormsAdministration.Models.Account', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'RescueFormsAdministration.Models.CreateAccountViewModel'. "

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

I found my own answer:

I made to modify the AccountController, it was:

        [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult Create(Account account)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
            {
                context.Accounts.Add(account);
                context.SaveChanges();
                return RedirectToAction("Index");  
            }

            return View(account);
        }

After I modified it to the below, it worked.

        [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult Create(CreateAccountViewModel CreateAccount)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
            {
                context.Accounts.Add(CreateAccount.AccountModel);
                context.SaveChanges();
                return RedirectToAction("Index");  
            }

            return View(CreateAccount);
        }
