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.

https://www.reddit.com/r/DJs/comments/6to6jj/does_anyone_know_kangaroo_bookings_french_agency/

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.

Kangaroo Bookings is a SCAM

Stay away!
I just want to add the information that the kangaroo bookings website no longer exists. Even the domain name is up for sale.

Look. Kangaroo Bookings have a SoundCloud page:



You'll notice they aren't following anyone. I think that shows what they think of their artists, although as nobody defending them in all these threads appears to have a SoundCloud account maybe that explains why.
They've got 128 followers. Let's have a look at those.



Isn't it strange they've all got auto-generated one word names, all in lower-case letters. That's because your international booking agency have bought fake followers.
Let's look at SoundCloud's policy on this:

It's a scam.

I dont see, where is the scam, My opinion is that Moonmelt just posted this to damage Anthony.
you guys only have to see that he is the only person who is doing that. Why? he wants protagonism.
Yes I copied the comment from Ernest de Jong Booker, I just wanted to quote him, I do not know how this is done in this forum. I'm not an idiot because of that, not everyone is as smart as you.
This is what I tried to explain, I'm not the only one who thinks the same. Be carefull with Moonmelt and their scam agency. http://www.gloostudios.com/contact/

This guy and this shitty company should be spammed, seems he talked bad about other agencies over internet just to sell more.

This is what I tried to quote:
As I said in the other thread: any scam, I worked with Anthony lot of years, we have common people in our circle of friends and acquaintances. Seem you are the only guy in all internet who is saying that.

Futhermore all your accounts has been created one day ago... reddit and soundcloudcommunity, you have lot of interest in to speak negatively about them.


After a small search, it seems clear what happens. Apparently the creator of this thread works in a company called Gloo Studios: gloostudios.com

They contact artists to make videos and charge them for it. The subject in question is responsible for animating videos and making music, with their corresponding commission. I think this guy, Alexander is trying to discredit Kangaroo Bookings by simply stealing customers. Just my opinion.
and not only here, lot of people talk pestilences about you Moonmelt:

I researched a little and how is it possible that with 600 followers you have 66k plays? and just in one song, I think the only fake here are you. LOL

I think moonmelt is a troll, Im signed up with Kangaroo and any trouble

My theory is that some people are trying to relate them to other bad agencies. It is a question of discrediting other agents to hoard the market. Dunno.

Hello everyone, I have also been contacted by this agency. The first thing I did was a research. I have searched on different web pages. soundcloud and reddit mainly.

It is curious that you accuse a person just for misusing a word. I do not speak english either. I would like to see how would write in romanian an english person, sure he dont talk perfect ;)

You said "they look like new accounts, a month ago" and yours? you guys just have a previous comment! https://www.reddit.com/user/Moonmelt

I am not accusing anyone, I just try to be neutral and approach this objectively, because I am also interested in joining the agency.

Furthermore I visited your soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/moonmelt
following: 830
followers: 601

and you guys have a track with 66.300 plays? how is it possible? you talked about: "It's easy enough to pay on facebook and boost your posts and make fake accounts." this is what you did guys? because I didnt know it was possible. But seems it is.
Could you explain this? don't get me wrong, just wantto clarify it. But you are accusing a person and it seems that you are doing exactly the same. I do not think it's objective or fair either.
I joined kangaroo yesterday and I had no problems. I entered for free, I do not see the scam nowhere.
Definitely, there are other agencies bothering to tryhard discard kangaroo.

I'm not selling anything, I'm making sure that other artists like myself don't get scammed by fake agencies like yours. Funny how when you get called out for being a scam all you can do is say, "no you're a scam!". Even if that was true, that just means everyone should stay away from both of us, which is completely fine.

I noticed you deleted all the comments you made on this reddit page:
https://www.reddit.com/r/DJs/comments/734ear/kangaroo_bookings_is_a_scam/

There was about 5 comments there from different fake accounts defending kangaroo bookings and now they have all disappeared.

Also "Fergie Mayhem" made the same grammar mistake as this person:

"Fergie Mayhem Booker* 3 replies 1 hour ago
I joined kangaroo yesterday and I had no problems. I entered for free, I do not see the scam nowhere.
Definitely, there are other agencies bothering to tryhard discard kangaroo."

"LUKANN Booker* 4 replies 4 hours ago
I you have so many satified artists why bother to tryhard discard Moonmelt ?"

This makes no sense in English and clearly the same guy who's behind all the accounts doesn't understand it very well because he keeps making the same mistakes over and over. Clearly these are all the same account. Stay away from these scammers, even if you join for free you're adding to their credibility which is what they want.
Are you saying that Lukann and me are the same person? Please, leave the drugs. You are paranoid, and few people believe you by now. So why do you say I have the hidden profile, if Im the same person?
https://soundcloud.com/lukann4

It is open! and created some years ago. ;););)

What is your theory now if we are supposed to be the same person... just cause we have made the same grammatical error. You have to relax more, or anyone will have the feeling that you guys have serious mental problems. Tell me one thing, you also listen to voices that say: "your music is good, your music is goooooooood". true? no way! those voices are also false. Come on! a bit of humor guys!

Anyway, I just wanted to give my opinion, but you always inventing and creating false testimony. You was exposed. Hallucinatory.
they contact me too and they look soooooo interested in my only one shitty track in SC! then i said im not going to pay a shit, and suddenly they were not so interested anymore ajajajaj
Well, you gotta check agencies before you actually start working with them. Like, if I want to BOOK a DJ for an event, I know where - and without extra cost. For example, this is great: https://bstars.eu/celebrities-catalog/dj-s.html?cm=0&dir=asc&order=i.name&search=#tlb

Does anyone know why they've decided to call themselves Kanga In Space?

Dude, I think you're mistaken. I have been part of this organization for a few months and I think for some reason you are trying to damage their reputation. In fact your comment is the first negative comment I read about them.
You are who is mistaking. You are probably payed by those bastards. What other proof do you need to see that they are a scam?

On the other hand, what credibility can you have? if you have not even tried their services, in my case I was a few weeks with the free plan and seeing that it was a serious team I decided to go to the verified profile
