Songwriter Scams & Spams
on: May 30, 2021, 15:29:27
Okay ... so some of us get emails and adds from, well, this big computer in the sky that has figure out that we are songwriters.  :-\  Yup.

This thread is to collect some of the scams and spams that target songwriters.  :(   ... or DIY musician/ producer types.

Whether it is an email from Tunecore or CDBaby or some music blog we can hopefully tell that it is just a way to separate us from our money by preying on our hopes and dreams.

Do you have any experience with this?

The most recent thing I'm seeing is that

Anyone can become a great singer without any lessons, training or vocal warmups!
Just for a small monthly fee of $97 of course.
I mean a little bit of money is all that is needed.
You pay the money. You become a great singer
Simple enough. Right?

Still playing unsigned artist on 15 stations FM and online. Drop ur links for consideration. 🔥✊🏾👌🏾🙏🏿

If you drop your song below you get reply:
cool. Send song to XXXXXXX@gmail.com

Once you send it either to the email:
get spammed via emails  with advertisment and the call to sign for abo just 17,90$ / month to eventually get played your song in a channel nobody knows..

 Reverbnation - which I just logged in to for the first time since ages - has quite some adverts within 'the admin panel'...PLayable Ads, whatever that might be...

Oh that's quite a spam @oorlab
Spam your friends, family and people you don't know ... all they have to do is click your distracting ad box.  :pompom:
