A so-called production company in England (I left their name off this post), has been contacting a number of Simply Scripters, saying they are interested in buying their scripts.  Before they can do so, the script must be reviewed by their script reader... for a price.  

No legitimate company will ask for money from you!  If they do, then walk away.

Don's edit. I added name of company. I agree with Phil, if they ask for money, walk away.

My search isn't pulling anything much. I'm getting the Iranian TV producers... even a Romanian company calling themselves iFilms. There's an ex US company with the same name.

Strangely, nothing UK-based at all.

Besides, these companies are easy to set up... as easy as saying 'I now run a company called so-and-so.' That's it. What's more difficult to hide are names. Chances are, if they're involved in one type of scam to make money, they're also involved with or cooking up fresh ones too.

Correction:  It's iFilm Group


http://www.ifilmgroup.com

There's a big discussion on Stage32 about them; they're contacting a lot of writers, claiming they're interested in buying their scripts... but the writer must provide notes from a reputable script reviewer.

I got contacted. I ignored it after I looked up their site. The movies on there look like crap and the company (Ifilm Group) doesn't show up in their IMDB credits as a producing company.

From Norm,

"... Thanks, this guy is trying to get me to send my script to a company called http://www.bentleymarx.com
to get it script report done, or get it done myself"

It would be interesting to see the response if you sent over a script that already had coverage from someone else.

Interesting choice of name for a business. Bent is slang for criminal here, also a Mark is somebody that is scammed.

I've googled and they don't exist outside of their website. Their website is also bereft of normal things like an ABOUT US page with photographs of the people running the show. Also this cracked me up:

"We do not except unsolicited material"

I suppose that means they accept unsolicited material.

Forget the script report.  Film Events is for me!

I already have my tickets for their special VIP Cannes Villa Party at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

According to ol' Bent Mark, "...this exclusive red carpet event will be one of the biggest in the festivals calendar."

At only ¬£ 1250.00 GBP, I suggest you act quickly, lest they sell out!  I mean, you can enter your credit card number right there, on their site, so there is no excuse for missing out!
