Mr Sanders wrote back:

Mr Torregrosa,

My consent to split the broker fee is to me a non issue.It can only be worked out between you and your co-writer.Like I said,my up-front payment is $1000 so its up you and your co-writer to know who pays the upper and who gets the bigger pay atlast.

I want to remind you that Shoot Rajasthan has worked out their schedule and thats include getting the scripts by now.I strongly suggest that you and your co-writer pay my upfront fee today so that I can forward the hardcopy contract documments to you.

As for being behind you,I think the greatest thing that could happen to you is to have Shoot Rajasthan produce your script.There are areas that we will have to work on but thats when we have entered a deal and your script will be superb!I don't think your agent is capable of brokering a better deal than I do.Script writers now turn to Bollywood because that's where the money is and that's where you get opportunities to explore your talents.

The ball is in your court.

And my response:

Dear Colonel Sanders,

I am wondering why Shoot Rajasthan would give up time and money to work out a schedule regarding my script when no contract deals have been thrashed out?

Is that why Bollywood is so ahead of the world in film?  Because by the time the documents have been signed, the film has already been made?  That does sound like cutting edge entertainment.

I think I'll have to side with my agent on this one.  He's just got a major deal to distribute my film, which alas is the end of your story.

                                                            Fade Out.
                         The End.

Jamming was contacted by Sanders, also.  She posted it in a different thread that was locked.

+++++++++++

Don's added note: Jammin's thread was locked and pointed to this thread so as to have a central thread on this scam.

Does Jammin still post here? I haven't seen her around since she lowered her colors on the homosexual thread.

What's especially amusing about the two that we've been made aware of after Phil played with the guy is that he's used that conversation in the subsequent emails. Even offered $48K right up front to Jammin.

I'd be like, dude if they want to give me that right now, take the shipping costs out of my check!

Quoted from dogglebe

I decided to contact the FBI on this matter.


The FBI have released an artist's impression of the suspect.

Today's response to Sanders:

Martin,

You will receive the money today.  A friend will send a Moneygram to you in about three hours.

Thank you for your patience.

That could make things interesting if you make one.

If you make a fake receipt and he claims he never got the money, send the receipt. Then, say that if he doesn't send your money within 24 hours, you'll seek legal counsel. Lol.
