Email Scam

Thanks to everyone who is letting us know about the email scam circulating with a too-good-to-be-true offer from the Oxford Storytelling Festival.

This is not the first time someone has sent this kind of message to storytellers; there are other versions of the scam using the names of other storytelling festivals, but the general nature of it is that a teller is offered a large quantity of money for a short performance, as well as airfare and accommodation. If they respond positively, they are asked for personal details, visa and passport information, and possibly banking details leading to potential identity or monetary theft.
