1 Journeyman 6 months ago Yesterday I received a call from a musician in Florida that I used to work with when she lived in Toronto, asking me to do a gig with her in Scotland at a festival. I knew that she had connections over there so thought it was all good. Long story short, it is a scam targeting USA musicians in an attempt to get passport information for the work visas. They seemed to know how the process works and were careful not to raise a red flag by paying the musicians too much money. So, just a warning to anyone who might be contacted. What made her suspicious was the repeated requests for the passport information for work visa processing, which they were going to pay for, before the contract was signed. I guess fake passports are probably worth a lot these days; what a world.
