Here is the lastest twist on the Nigerian email scam.
Several writers have received an email from one “Martin Sanders” who claims to be representing Shoot Rajasthan Film (a legitimate film production company, by the way).
Phil (dogglebe) received one such email and posted it to the discussion forums.
The email contains a fake message from Shoot Rajasthan Film to Mr. Sanders purportedly asking Mr. Sanders to secure the rights to a particular script. Mr. Sanders then sends out an email informing you, the writer, that he and only he can represent your script for the mere sum of $300.
This is a scam.
Phil confirmed this with Mr. Dilip Kungwani of Shoot Rajasthan Film who responded, “thanks for your mail..this man is totally fake.”
You can read the full scam email and follow along the subsequent email exchange between Phil and “Mr. Sanders”. Phil decided to have some fun with Mr. Sanders. – Don
