Songwriter Scam Alert

Post by Skylarvj » Wed Mar 17, 2021 10:17 pm

Hey Songwriter Taxi Friends!!!

I just want to warn you all that there is a scam going around targeting songwriters. If someone contacts you asking you to write a song for their kid's birthday, proceed with extreme caution. My sister was contacted and almost became a victim.

Here is a news article with more info: https://www.newschannel5.com/news/local ... thday-song

Happy Songwriting Everyone!

also be aware of producers pretending to work with you as a regular collab, telling you how amazing your songs are, just to ask you for money to produce it after the project has been discussed. (yes, they're in here too it seems).

Yeah, one of the oldest scams in the book. They accidentally 'overpay' you, then insist you must reimburse them.

Wait for the check to clear.
