Scam Alert - fraudulent email
« on: September 26, 2018, 10:05:21 PM »
We’ve become aware that an individual using the name "Audrie Stroud" is contacting artists and authors claiming to be a “creative editor and sourcer” for Escape Artists. The email we’re aware of requested the recipient’s freelance rates, and offered a permanent, full time position.

We do not know who this individual is, and they are not acting in our name. We’re disgusted our name is being hijacked in such a manner, and our hearts go out to any creatives contacted.

The email was sent out using a gmail account. Please be aware that all official @EAPodcasts correspondence will come from either a show address (e.g. @podcastle.org ) or an @escapeartists.net  address.

If you’ve received a similar message from this person, or a similar sounding request, please get in touch at owners@escapeartists.net
I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

That’s NOT cool. Release the tentacled “thing” upon these fraudsters...  >:(
