It has come to our attention that there is an email scam which targets film industry members in Canada and the US, including in Ottawa. If you receive an email similar to the one below, which appears to come from Scott Mosier, do not reply.
Hi this is Scott, currently have a developmental project to work on within your city and will be needing your expertise in the area of [position]. If considered, you would be working with my production team on a lucrative term.
Send me any good sample/link of your recent work for my perusal and if considered, I will email you back with the project details. Thank you
