Alert for Tutors. SCAM WARNING! Check-Counterfeit Cashier's Check

by Sara

We would like to alert all our tutors to be on guard if they receive a request that seems either odd, far- fetched or too good to be true!

Today, many of our Music teachers were sent a request with the following message:

How are you today?I got your contact email while searching for music teacher on the internet.I have a daughter(Evelyn) who is interested studying music.Evelyn doesn't have any previous in the music but she is ready to learn.She's a 15 year old girl with a very sharp brain. she's coming down there to your location for the lessons.We base in Toronto but I just got a new job appointment in Edinburgh,UK and i want Evelyn to come over there to attend the lessons before she will finally come to Edinburgh,UK to stay with me.If you have agreed to accept Evelyn as your student,please get back to me with the following information... *Your studio policy with regard to fees, and make-up lessons

*Total fees for two months lessons(two hours lessons in a week)

*Your teaching location and phone number.

I want the lessons to start by April 25th.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

The above is known as a Check-Counterfeit Cashier´s check scam. You can Google this term for more information.
