SCAM ALERT! If you recently received any emails that appear to be "to-good-to-be-true" they probably are... especially in this line of work! Always check who it's from... if it has an extension you don't recognize, it's probably from another country. (Example : marketing.ru -- produktion.pl -- filmmaker.it) All of these are from outside the U.S. -- Russia, Poland, and Italy respectively. It's the holidays, and crooks are in full swing!

HERE'S ANOTHER EXAMPLE, FROM RUSSIA NO LESS
It's not spam. I'm offering you a good job of producer
Hello respected producer . I should like to ask for your opinion about a work on the draft .
The book is ideal for creating a music video, commercial (food, domestic appliances or electronics, sports goods etc.), placement product, prompts of musical festival, video shows at concerts, a short film or animation etc.
Here short description of first book -This book tells us about three pregnant women being in a birthing centre.
One of them got music from a receiver set, then it was transferred to her uterus and the child had received it. After that this child transferred the music to the other two children in their mothers` bellies. Then an ultrasound device showed how all three children were dancing in the uteros. After that the music spread to the whole birthing centre and even newborn children began to dance while listening to it. When there was no light in the room, one of the adults was watching this dance by way of a multirole thermal imager and saw the babies dancing on the monitor. And when bulbs in the whole building began to twinkle, the adults could see that incredible dancing without any devices. One of the babies played a soundboard while standing headfirst. The other one jumped on a ball. A group of other babies made up three pillars by jumping on the shoulders of each other and wearing a big shirt. And the main baby wore headphones and transferred the music to the other children. At the same time the adults were watching this dance. And the bulbs were twinkling like disco music lights and the music was sounding. Also there were a lot of fun moments in the book.
(The second book(I write this book now) tells us about a sad girl, about that how nature and music put her in a cheerful frame of mind and helped her to feel on top of the world.)
