ALERT: Casting Scam

A former member
Post #: 62
AFTRA stands for American Federation of Radio and Television Artists.
It's the union for performers in daytime soaps, in TV or radio news, and
any work where tape is used instead of film. Film work is usually done
through Screen Actors Guild, but sometimes jobs overlap.

The e-mail below is a warning about a casting scam. It's referring to
one particular company, but be suspicious of anyone who ever asks for
your union initiation fee or other dues.

AFTRA FLASH

ALERT: CASTING SCAM!!

AFTRA has received a report that Fisch Industries Global, Inc., a
company representing itself as a casting agency for AFTRA-covered
programs, is asking performers to pay money to be applied to AFTRA 's
initiation fee and/or dues.

THIS IS A SCAM INTENDED TO DEFRAUD PERFORMERS! All performers are warned
that no outside company is authorized to accept payment of initiation
fees or dues to AFTRA. If you are asked to sign a contract with a
company that holds itself out as a casting agency, production entity, or
talent agency, and asks you to pay them any portion of your or someone
else's AFTRA initiation fees and/or dues, please contact either the
AFTRA National office in New York or the AFTRA Los Angeles Local
immediately, so AFTRA can notify the proper authorities.

In New York : Megan Capuano, 212-532-0800

In Los Angeles : Jean Frost, 323-634-8100

Please forward this Flash to your fellow performers.
