I got a scam e-mail this past week from “Jeffrey Meyers” in “Canada” wanting Fort Worth voice lessons for his daughter. His English was terrible and the whole thing seemed fishy. I knew it was a scam, but I wanted to see where he was going and what he was going to ask of me. So, I replied. Below is our conversation. If you receive an e-mail from jeffrey.meyers20@yahoo.com know that it is indeed a scam. Anyway, I had a little bit of fun. I hope this allows you a good read, or even better yet, warns someone to stay away from this scammer.

Hello Jeffrey,

Thank you for e-mail. I have a few questions for you.

1. Where is your daughter going to be on her vacation? (I want to make sure that I should be her voice teacher – location is important).
2. What is your daughter’s voice type?
3. What are your daughter’s long term and short term goals in her vocal education?
4. I do not teach one hour days for 5 weekdays for 5 weeks. I do teach 45 minute lessons once a week and could teach her for five weeks. That would be a total of $250.
5. What has been your daughter’s previous experience with voice teachers, choir, musical theatre performances, etc.

Thank you,

D’Lytha

I would like the lessons to start on the 14th of July, my daughter will be in Dallas texas which i make an arrangement of getting a place for her to stay which will be nearby where you teach so it can be easy for her to come to your place of teaching for the lessons.. Lindsay is currently intermediate in her voice learning and she need to study more to be in advance level.

How about Wednesdays starting July 16th? Would 2:30 work? I teach at www.casamanana.org, which is 45 minutes away from Dallas. If that is not convenient for your daughter, I understand.

Thank you,

D’Lytha Myers

45 minute lessons are $50 a lesson. 45 minute lessons for five weeks would be a total of $250. My in-person voice lessons pay me in cash at the time of the lesson. Lindsay can pay me in cash at the end of each lesson, that way you two can be assured that I am not just taking your money in advance, like a scam.

Thank you,

D’Lytha Myers

Great. Before I lock anything in stone, I need you to email me or send me a link to a video of you introducing your daughter and her singing a song. That way I can make sure it is worth all the trouble. I need to make sure she is someone I want to work with.

Thank you for understanding,

D’Lytha

Proverbs 6:16-19
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

I do not mind waiting for you to get a video together. It is of the utmost importance that I see what talents your daughter has before I go to any troubles. I’m sure that you won’t mind going to a lot of trouble to get a video together, seeing as how much trouble I may be willing to do for you.

Here is what I need from you…
I need you to state in the video your…
Full Name ……..
Address…….
Phone Number….
Your Daughter’s Full Name…
The Song Your Daughter Will Perform…
AND THEN, I need your daughter to sing a song on the video. It can be a cappella or with music.

Thank you for understanding,

D’Lytha

Proverbs 6:12-15
A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.

    Well played Dlytha! I received the EXACT string of emails and dealt with it in a similar manner. Unfortunately , I’m worried that there are folks who could easily fall prey to this Scam especially if they haven’t been teaching for a while. I will be sure to post about it on my blog as well and on some of the linkedin groups and am going to make a report. Unbelievable! I love that you asked for a video–good thinking!
