Another email scam

2016-01-18

SCAM - BEWARE

One of our members recently received an email invitation to participate in BEYOND THE  BORDER - Wales International Storytelling Festival 2016. After speaking with the festival's real organizer, the member confirmed that this invitation was a scam, and that several other tellers have received similar invitations.

The email asks that the teller gives a guest performance and to provide personal information, and offers a great deal of money and perks for the appearance. We assume that once the teller bites, he or she is asked for banking information.

If you receive an invitation to ANY festival, please confirm its authenticity with the festival organizer.
