The real Hustle – The Bogus Agency Scam

Posted by Awareness

The Definition: The Bogus Agency Scam is one of the more elaborate hustles, entailing the renting of space to set up a phony talent agency. The aim of the scam is to play upon the victims’ desire to make it big in show business – and their willingness to back up this desire with hard-earned cash. The set-up is complicated, but for the scammers, the payoff is big time indeed.

The Mark: Any talented – or, for that matter, not so talented – young lady or gent who believes that he’s destined for the bright lights and big city. This lust for celebrity blinds them to the reality of the situation – the cons are not interested in your voice, they are interested in your money!

The Scam: Britain’s Got Talent, American Idol, The X Factor and shows of this ilk have all conspired to make The Bogus Agency Scam more popular than ever before.
