Very Fantastic Xmasmix! Congrats!

dj bulut

I received the exact same email that you did. Wedding date is the same too. I am still investigating if it is a genuine request. Perhaps his daugter likes my podcast and yours too...

Just send me a note at dj.bulut@gmail.com and let me know what you think.

JBran

Got the same emails. You'd think these cats would have learned how to use spell check by now. I mean a Dr.? Of what?

DJ Kevlar

Just got the same email... SCAM

Sterl Da Perl

i got the same email mentioned...just wondering if anybody replied and if so, what was his response?...

RapidEye

Awesome!!!
Just heard in on the DSC - Thanx!!!

Jules

This is being targeted (from what I've heard) to DJ's and traveling musicians, and one confirmed case of utter duping, and the scammers made off with thousands. Don't trust it, guys.

Kelly Cline

I responded before I saw this page and this is the response I got.

yup. we got something ridiculously similar to that email a couple months ago and responded to it. Wrote up an artist contract which they ignored and then out of the blue, just sent us a check for 3x our fee and they requested we deposit the check in the bank ASAP and then money order the remainder to a third party. Well that's pretty obviously bogus. So I looked up online scams targeting djs and this one has been circulating for a while. What they will do is once you have deposited the check and sent the money, they will cancel the check and request return payment, keeping whatever you would have sent via money order. Later your bank will reverse the credit to your account because the check is bad.

Dj Shit

I got the same scam_email! Huh!

Maryn

My husband is a DJ and got a series of e-mails over a 2 month span exactly like these. Luckily we relized it was a scam when we recieved a ridiculous check and were asked to pay the wedding planners, what DJ does that? I immediately sent a very nast e-mail telling the scammers that they are not going to get us and they even wrote back and tried to convince us that they were "god fearing", and would never try to hurt us. No more out of town clients with broken English for us anymore!

DJ-Kiwi

I still get these! lol

jeff paul

lol i got this one today :-d

jeff paul scam

sounds like good advice. hopefully most men know that 25 year old women in foreign countries are not pining away for you--they just want to get into your wallet.

Dan

I just got this email and I am in portland, oregon...thanks for the heads up!

Tony T

Holy crap -- just got my first one like this. I responded because I am booked on his requested date. I'll post any response I get. I might just F*** with him a bit... ha ha - scam the scammer. Anyway -- here's the email I received over the weekend:

Hello my name is Dr Clerk Martins,pls i need your services to play as the dj

Dallas.Please i will like to know if you will be available for the

Tony T

Well - what do you know... his daughter's wedding happens to be during the day. I got this response posted below. I'm thinking of stringing him along and getting a 15,000 check to frame on my wall....
