These guys contacted me on soundcloud stating that they were an international booking agency. After doing some research I found that there were several similar "agencies" that have been scamming people out of 30-40 euros asking for a registration fee to join.
I received this email:
"How are things going? I hope all is well with you. I am Anthony from kangaroo bookings, a french booking agency. We started earlier this year and currently we are growing up little by little you know
We are like a bridge between artists and clubs worldwide. In short, I would like to ask you something: What means music to you? Is it a Hobby or a Job? Are you already signed with a booking agency? Are you interested in get bookings this summer season? (July-October)? Sorry in advance for the inconvenience but your Moonmelt project reached my ears and new faces are always welcome. Have a nice Weekend Anthony L."
Look at the similarities between that email and this one:
"Hello! Let me introduce my self. I am Sebastian from France. I manage my own music artist agency "DivineBookings" with my work partner Thierry, for a while I worked in the world of 'bookings', I have some clubs and music festival contacts worldwide. We started our own international booking agency 7 months ago. I would like to ask you something: What means music to you? It's just a hobby or something else? How much are you interested to work as musical artist? Sorry in advance for the inconveniences but your track Feeling of victory reached my ears and I would like to know more about you."
This second email is from a fake agency called Divine Bookings. Here is some proof:
You can go to these threads here and see them personally attack and harass me when I call them scammers because they have no appropriate defense.
They create many fake accounts with fake testimonials to try and make their agency legit but all of the accounts have been created recently.
I would appreciate it if you guys could help spread the word and stop these terrible people from preying on and taking money from hard working honest artists, possibly like yourself.
