My child who is 17 was interested in entering a singing competition and told me about this ad on craigslist. I immediately went online to see if they had a website and found a bright orange website. Since I have been a police officer for 22 years here in the Metro I decided to do some Investigating. The first thing I did was a WHOIS on the site and found out some clown, not some company owns the site. Thats the first signs of a scam. I then went and called the State and found out this was just set up by some guy named Timothy Wright, and that he is also the same person who owns the website according to the registrar information. I bet you all are wondering why this ad caught my attention. The misspelled words on the sight did it for me. I was blown away on the grammar and the poor sentence structure, and the shady looking website put the icing on the cake. For the meantime, I will keep my child away and will investigate further. I have been told contestants (that are young teenagers mind you) are required to sell t-shirts in order to showcase the talent. This is what I found on their website: EACH SEMI-FINALIST IS ASKED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROMOTIONAL AWARENESS OF THE CURRENT STATE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IN A VARIETY OF WAYS. THE RECORDING CONTRACTS AWARDED TO THE WINNER CAN BE FROM A HOST OF MAJOR RECORD LABELS TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO ISLAND DEF JAM, INTERSCOPE, MOTOWN, CAPITAL, VIRGIN, AND SIGNIFICANT SOUTH, JUST TO NAME A FEW. THE WINNER OF GRAND FINALE WILL RECEIVE A RECORDING CONTRACT WITH ONE OF THE ABOVE LISTED LABELS BASED ON THE STYLE OR TYPE OF MUSIC THEY PERFORM. Meaning there is some MONEY involved somewhere. BEWARE! YOU WILL GET RIPPED OFF! I will keep you all posted on my findings. TJ Smith
