Has any model received a message in the recent past offering a fashion shoot job with something like a £300 up-front payment, and a £700 balance in cash on completion, (or similar figures), mentioning Vogue Malaysia (or something equally improbable) and using the US English spelling of the word catalogue, i.e. "catalog".

Was the initial payment offered by bank transfer?

Have you handed over your bank details?

Have you received any payment?

If you have even the slightest concern about this approach, please send me the full text of the message you have received and the complete following thread, and if possible the source email address and IP address via PM.

Thanks
