Watch the video below to see in action a perfectly pulled Music Agency Scam:
But let's take a look. When you're in the office for your audition, a fake artist (another scammer) 'represented' by the agency pays a visit to pick up her demo.
The artist is very happy of the good cooperation with the agency and recommends them to you. This is trick number one to convince you that they are real. As the successful artist leaves, the agent picks up the conversation about you and your talent.
He brings in trick number two to convince you. He explains that there is a very important person in the music industry coming to listen to the audition. It comes down to convincing him of your talent in order to get a contract. If he likes you, it must mean that you are talented.
You do your audition and of course they like you, the music big shot leaves the room and let the auditor do the rest of his work, after he tells him he really likes your performance. The third act of persuasion is to say they really believe in you and are willing to invest 2/3th of the money themselves.
They are prepared for questions and answer them smoothly. The contract is on the table, you just need to sign and pay an advance fee it in order to get started with the demo that will make you successful. The pressure of missing out of this great opportunity makes the people to sign the worthless contract.
