Scam heads-up

I just wanted to keep this info in circulation because the people behind this scam keep changing company names and reaching out to actors on casting sites, often Backstage, who to their credit is doing what they can to play whack-a-mole with the scammers.
The way the scam works is you'll get a cold contact from a production company telling you they've seen your profile and they want to use you in a commercial. They'll throw a bunch of words at you (see below) that essentially give you no details on the actual project, other than the fact that they'll be sending you a check for several thousand dollars to buy your own wardrobe for the project.
This is not how legitimate productions operate.
The check is fraudulent and apparently they ask you to convert it to Bitcoin after you receive it. By the time you find out their check was worthless you've already sent them your own good money. This is a type of advance-fee scam.
Here's an example of the message you may receive from these people:
We have acknowledged the receipt of your information and application form via email, and have properly examined it. After going through your profile, Our highly esteemed Team Of Professionals have been able to access your credibility and potential. Based on this fact, the Board of Fillmore Films have decided to grant you an opportunity to partake in this shoot. On the above subject matter, the Fillmore Films hereby congratulates you on your successful emergence. It is a great honor to have you in our team. Congratulations and welcome! We hope you will have an amazing time working with us, we are looking forward for the company’s success with you. We believe in your skills, talents and knowledge that you can use for our clients and company’s improvement. Further details are as follows: REMUNERATION : $5,000 USD [ (You will be paid an Upfront of $500) (Balance : $4,500 to be paid immediately after the shoot) RETAINER, PRE-NEGOTIATIONS & WARDROBE EXPENSES : You’ll receive An All-In-One Check for $4,990 to cover for your upfront payment ($500) and that of your wardrobe. You’ll be using the difference ($4,490) for your wardrobe as soon as the funds clears your bank, further instructions on how to obtain your wardrobe will be provided to you. Please confirm that you understand and agree. LOCATION OF THE SHOOT : We have to make sure everything is in place before we confirm our location booking. We are currently looking between studios because we need to pick the one available at the time you receive your wardrobe and everything is ready to go. So I'll let you know the details ahead of time as soon as you have your wardrobe in place. OTHER REQUIREMENTS : You must be able to take directions and easy to work with. Good working relationship can mean long term working relationship with the company. MEASUREMENT & STATS: Kindly provide us with the information below where applicable AgeHeightEyesBustWaistHipsDressShoes BILLING INFORMATION Name on Check :Address and apartment number (If any) :City, State and Zip code :Cell phone number : RELEASE & CONTRACT LETTER : The release and agreement letter has been attached below, kindly download it, sign it and revert via email. You can also sign it electronically. Please be kind to send the measurement & stats and contract letter as soon as possible as we cannot proceed without it. If you don’t have a print or cannot sign the model release, you can sign the attestation below : ATTESTATION : I, the undersigned, do hereby attest that I have read, understood and agree to the terms and condition of the model release form attached to this email. …………………………………… Name and Date Thanks in anticipation
There are a few ways to tell these companies are not legitimate, other than the terrible grammar in that message and the knowledge that no one pays upfront like that or makes you buy your own wardrobe with their money. Spend a moment to look at their website, if they reach out to you. Here's an example of the latest, which may be defunct by the time you read this message: It says they were formed in 2011, yet the WHOIS info for the domain shows a site creation of 7/25/18. The site is never more than a few months old.
Check out the "Contact" page and do some image searches of the people listed there. It turns out that Brad Alonso and Kimberly O'Brien are actually Andrew Thompson and Lucy Bailey of Explore Films. The others listed there are directors for an American company also called Explore Media.
Also there's no footage whatsoever on the website, just pictures most likely culled from other legitimate companies' sites. If you're in this business, the first thing you want to do is show people your work.
Here is a post on the Backstage forums on the topic:
Here's a list of companies that have been fabricated for the scam:

MVM Inc. Fresno CA
Bryanston Productions

Sasol Media

Dear Reddit. Can we talk? It’s CAVIRTEX

TL:DR We’re fixing our dormant account activity fee policy - you’ll now be getting 3 alerts before any charges. Fees have been reduced by 50%. CAVIRTEX is an exchange not a wallet. Our CEO Joseph is going to do an AMA. We want your feedback.
Dear Reddit,
Let me introduce myself. My name is Kyle Kemper (that is my real name), and I started working with CAVIRTEX this May. In April, I appeared alongside Joseph David and Larry O’Brien at the Senate of Canada which can be seen here. After the Senate, I was elected to the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada as a Director by the groups membership. Before Bitcoin I’ve worked in start-ups, venture capital, the service industry, politics, and waterslides. I decided to join CAVIRTEX because I think they’re on the right path, and they’ve got a great team across the board. Since joining CAVIRTEX I’m seeing that we’re doing a lot of things right. We’ve got a solid roadmap ahead of us, but in the past we’ve made mistakes.
It is my goal to change this and fix our reputation amongst one of the most impressive communities on the planet and have your support moving forward.
The first thing I want to address is our dormant account activity fees policy; a policy that created anger and outrage amongst the community. CAVIRTEX wants to acknowledge that we mishandled the implementation and communication of this policy and are taking steps to remedy the situation.
But before we get into solutions lets look at the reasons why we implemented them in the first place.
The message that the dormant activity fee tries to get across is that we are an exchange and not a bank/wallet. As part of your long-term bitcoin plan you shouldn't use an exchange to store your coins. At this moment, holding unnecessary amounts of coins and cash increases our liability, expenses and security. If we're not holding your coins, we can't lose your coins. For these reasons it was decided to charge an inactivity fee of $50 per month for accounts with balances and no trading activity in the last 12 months.
Having said this the way we implemented this was terrible, and we apologize. We didn't communicate it properly, we didn't include proper alerting, and we didn't test the system properly.
Since launching the dormancy fee we have refunded many users who were improperly charged. Specifically, there was a bug that charged account holders on recent deposits because there was no trading activity in the last year; this wasn't right, we've issued refunds, and we've fixed the bug. If you feel that your account was improperly charged, submit a support ticket and you’ll hear from us shortly.
We're also implementing email alerts so that 1-month, 1-week, and 1-day before you get charged and inactivity fee you will get notice and can act to move your coins or make a trade.
We’ve heard your complaints about our fees and we’re taking action. We’ve lowered our fees by 50%! Our base transaction fee is now 0.75%, which will help you save money while you trade. We noticed that a lot of our users were just using CAVIRTEX as a fiat gateway; with these lower fees we hope you’ll do your trading here.
We now offer FREE in-person cash deposits so you can go to any MoneyMart, CashMoney, or Insta-cheque to fund your account.
We're working tirelessly on improving our service, but most of the improvements are on the back-end. That said, our re-designed website is near the top of the queue but no firm dates yet.
For storing your bitcoins I suggest you look into services like, Armory or follow some of the suggestions listed here but for heavens sake do not use us as a bank or wallet; use us as an exchange. That goes for any exchange, not just CAVIRTEX!
I know we're not the most popular Bitcoin company, but we want to work actively with you towards improving our service and reputation. On that note, our CEO Joseph David will be doing an AMA for our 3-year anniversary.
Until then, here are some questions I have to get a constructive discussion going.
What would you do to grow CAVIRTEX and improve it’s image? What do you think we should change?
To a better future, in liberty, much love,
-Kyle Kemper
