Not only does he do the things you have mentioned but he will beat ya up and rob ya too...He just did it to a very good friend of mine as she is a little new to all this and fell for the email. He got her down to Miami, Punched her in the head, then stole 1000.00 from her purse.

I received an email from some character claiming to be from World Wide Entertainment, wanting to hire me for the drummer of Avenged Sevenfold (I wish).

Anyway, apparently this guy's been at it for ages. Providers actually fall for his scam all the time and have been relieved of various amounts of cash, had credit cards stolen, been raped, beaten, etc.

The scam is that he sends you this email usually asking for a two-day minimum to be with a famous musician, you get excited and agree to it, and he buys you a ticket to S. FL using a stolen credit card. Then he makes up some story about how he is waiting on the company to send him cash- can you cover for him for today? He ends up taking so many people's credit cards. I am surprised people actually fall for this, but I imagine young ladies new to the industry would be easy targets.

So if you get an email that sounds like this, it's a scam. Google "band scam" and you should be able to dig up the stuff on it. I understand that it's been around for ages (you've likely discussed it here already), but the guy was put in jail for about 3 months (if that) and now he's out again and back up to his old tricks.

Only the names and the band names have been changed. You should ask to  gain entrance to the providers board and you will learn all sorts of things.

Remember...

If it sounds to good to be true....it is!

99% of scams are easy to detect if you remember the simple adage "If it's too good to be true, then it probably is."

It also helps to be intelligent and not so greedy for money.
