    Default Photographers take care

    Just want to share an experience I had ...

    Lately I have been contacted via MSN by someone claiming to be models I have worked with before ... and each time this person would ask me to share some photos with her .. either of shoots of the model or shoots with other people ..

    First time it occurred with the model's very own MSN account ... the second is with an account similar to the model's own... complete with profile pic and link to the model's portfolio page ...

    Each time it occurred, I asked for separate verification and the person goes offline immediately ..

    So photographers, please be careful of sharing photos via MSN, please ask for separate verification. either via webcam, identify the model, or call or SMS the model immediately for verification ... before you send any photos or share any photos ...

    Just want to further clarify ... in both cases the actual model isn't the person I was talking to in MSN ....

    Another similar scam is this "model" will ask to see more pictures before she will commit to shoot. One of such is using the DanlyNg nick on MM, and this email on MM - DanlyNg_hinlim@hotmail.com.
