Urgent News - Cash request Scam


Friends at Bristol Jazz Festival and World Music Engineer (Rob Ellmore) are warning us that Bristol Jazz and others have been targeted by a scam.

It comes online and looks like it’s offering musicians gigs at these legitimate events and then ultimately asks for money for work permits.

One or two people have already fallen foul of it.  Don’t get caught out!

Should you receive any such offers for gigs then requests for cash don’t accept them – and do let us know at AFO and we will continue to keep people in touch.

Thanks to Rob Ellmore for bringing that to our attention.
