Wow, and for a buisness with such a large bankroll, I wonder why their English is so bad? Makes me wonder. Ok, it dosn't, looks almost exactly like one of those Nigerian scams. But I may have gotten one a long time ago, but just tossed it out because it appeared som fraudulent.

The bad language and grammar tells me that in all likelihood, it was written by local news media. ;>)

I got the similar e-mail today. I reply the e-mail stating that as a TOP International photographer, my fee starts at $10,000 per day, but my assistant will be glad to take the assignment. My problem now is that I am still looking in my equipment rack for a 'long' and 'shot' camera....LOL.

Next thing they 'll tell you is that, in order to secure the job, you 'll need to pay them their portion of $5,000 in advance.

artists fee will be paid, until we receive and confirm part payment we

choice,get intouch with your required payment details
The payment would be mailed directly to you alongside the model
artists fee and immediately you have it i will instruct you and give
you the model artists agents name you are to send the Model artists
fee to.Then you will be paid the balance immediately after the
shooting, I hope this is quite clear.Please I'd like you to check your
