Ack, the internet can be a cruel place sometimes. I suspect these folks are fishing for email addresses over at the Sugar in the Gourd Musician's Directory pages. But, if anyone else would like to transport me to the UK to participate in festivals, send me a legitimate email and check your spelling and grammar. :-)

Total scam.

You are not the first.

There is no "Heritage Music Company" in the UK. The language is not British English. The phone number redirects, I am told, out of the UK.

One has to wonder how many they rope in with this sort of crap. If they didn't get any takers, they wouldn't keep doing it, would they?

You mean that $2000 "earnest money/refundable hotel deposit" I just wired Mrs. Taylor was for naught?

I cannot believe that you people are not jumping on this chance of a life-time! I, too, sent Mrs. Taylor my "earnest" money. Dang, but wouldn't you know it, I sent her a money-order, and sent too much! Not to worry, as she immediately refunded me the difference. I dont think she's going to be very happy when she finds out that the original money-order was no good though.

Hi,
Is anybody here who already contacted that company? I also received that kind of email and this time its from Edward Alex and Luis Vilora, can you imagine they keep on calling me on the phone? Asking me to go there and they're the one who will process for my UK visa???
Oh my, is anybody from UK who can check this? I'm dumb coz i send 20uero for the process of my visa under the name of Luis Vilora and they send the Mr. Caleb Robert will send the performance fee to my account and when they asked me to send transfer fee and I didn't send it, they said that the money was hold for a reason of not sending the transfer fee??? oh my gosh!

leena - Posted - 05/04/2009:  19:35:35

THE HERITAGE MUSIC COMPANY
+447045707174

LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE!

brya31 - Posted - 05/05/2009:  02:40:53


leena I have not received anything from these people but based on what I have read this company is nothing but a big scam and should be avoided

Rob

M-D - Posted - 05/05/2009:  05:51:24


Leena,

The best way that I can help you is to tell you to quit messing with these people. This whole thing is a scam, a con, a set-up to get you to part with your money. It is nothing more than that.

And, if the performance is for this May 2-3, it's already over. It's the 5th of May where I am.

I'm glad that i found this forum. I'm an entertainment provider in Malaysia and have received the same email as you, from Dr Rev Mike from Heritage Music Company. They even sent me contracts and ask me to sign and contact the British High Commission.

Something just doesn't feel right, that's when I goggled and found this forum. I almost got bought into this scam.
