My cousin recently got a "too good to be true" job offer and I'm trying to figure out what the potential scam is.
The company is supposedly a new movie production company who already has "hollywood" movie deals in the making. They are telling him he would be in charge of all the music for the movies they are producing. They promised him an incredible salary and amazing perks like travel, great benefits, an NYC apartment and a bunch more. My cousin has DJ experience, but no experience on this high a level. They also asked him if he knew of anyone else who was looking for a job, as they have many positions to fill. They said they don't have to have movie making experience, just be personable and commited. He told her about me and she seemed very interested in offering me a position with very limited information on my skills and background . I asked him what the name of this production company is but he said he was told it is not public yet so they can't go around advertising it. They took him to lunch when they met, so he has not been to their office either. They are supposed to be sending him a contract to sign soon and he seems so eager but the whole thing screams "scam" to me. I just can't figure out what the angle is. He said they have not asked him for a dime. Will the scam be in the fine print of the contract? What should he look out for other than the obvious - like them asking for any sort of money from him? Has anyone had any exeperience with this type of employment con before? I want to talk my cousin out of this before he gets too far in, but I don't know how to convince him it's not ligit. Any advice anyone may have would be greatly appreciated....
