The Newest VO Email SCAM - Please Read and BEWARE !!!

I received an email today, and once this is posted I suspect many more will have also. Since this is completely unsolicited AND the email is generic, not specific with my name, I deduce this to be a scam, just as each of the others in the same verbiage have been. Stay away, don't answer any email that looks like this:

Header: 30 Second VO TV Commerical

(Notice the generic intro.......) Attention:

I am trying to reach this talent concerning a voice over TV Commercial.

I'd like to receive a response to my email so i can be assured i have the right contact email.

Thank you.

==========================================

You will notice no phone, no contact, generic yet enticing for the unwary. These people obtain your email and then spam you OR dupe the innocent and unwary out of money or vo services IF YOU are not careful. I get these from time to time, but I know exactly who is contacting me, and exactly whom I am dealing with at all times. The real deal will always leave contact information and/ or at least a phone number.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY to these types of scams, it will never work out.

Take care everyone....

Those type of emails come from time to time, it's just sad that there seems to be a scam for just about anything. Better to stay aware and be-aware. Good luck with this everyone.

Hmm.... I wonder how many other people they've sent this email to. Thanks for the heads up, Barry. I believe it was briefly posted on Voices.com too - though they may have removed it.
