    Default Got a weird mail from Afton bookings

    So, today I was checking my email and received the following.

    My name is Amy Cordy, and I work for MyAfton, booking shows in the Cleveland area. I've been with the company for over 4 years. Currently, I am putting together shows at Grog Shop, Vortex, and Frat House. My next open date is Jan 13th. I work with pretty much every genre, just depends on the night. I get dates each month so I'm sure we can find something that would fit well for you.

    Is this be best email to reach you at for booking? It was listed on your page, but let me know if there's a better address?

    Reply back to let me know if you might ever be interested in booking, and we can go from there, ok?

    I thought it was a bit weird, specially because I dont even live in the US.
    Anyways, any of have received email from Afton?
    What is the real deal behind these?

    Thanks!

    have you googled their name to see if they're legit?
    i've gotten bookings out of the blue from soundcloud that didn't seem legit at first, but w some back and forth emailing, everything worked out ok!
    that being said, be cautious of course. and if you dont live in the us, of course they should pay your way.

    hope someone here has dealt w them before
    best of luck!

    I get random emails from these "Afton" guys all the time. It seems like a scam.

    I got an email from these guys last week. I replied asking for more info, but after looking at their page n stuff, it's definitely a pay to play scam.

    you should NEVER pay to play. thats retarted (no offence to anyone with down syndrome)

    If you were going to PAY, to play somewhere, then you should 100% be getting something in return.
