His “name” is James Roger Veritone, Gmail address of that name. Yeah, Veritone. “Went to your site, loved what I heard, yada yada.” He offered $850 and the “you must be of the right mind” crap. This guy(s) must be making money somewhere because he/they have been doing this for years.

My NSFW response:

Wow. This crap is one of the oldest scams in the book. You F’n waste of humanity. I’m reporting you to every voice actor I can find. Try getting honest work.

Rot in hell asswipe

My response would've been pretty much the same as Bruce's. I also advise scam callers to seek honest work.

I received another one of the game show scams in my email just today. Our market must be flooded with the easily-duped. Almost as bad as the romance scams in the Instagram DM's.

Choosy in Work & Single

P.S. An agent contacted me months ago requesting an appointment to discuss representation, then ghosted me for two months. I ignored their new request sent yesterday to reschedule since there was no explanation included for their disappearance. Considering that communication is the field we work in, I tend to expect it.

Hey Sherry, good move to not go after the lackluster agent.Their ghosting likely shows how they deal with buyers too.

I get surprisingly few "game host show" invitations, especially considering I actually have a game show host VO on one of my demos. But I did get one yesterday, purporting to be form Andrew Dihn Morgan, whoever that is. Nothing about being in a good frame of mind or engineers bringing real perfection. It just said, "I got your contact from your website, Voice over actor needed for a commercial game host show advert project. Please respond if you are available and interested."
For the record, I am not interested.
