… or maybe the scam never left, but I hadn’t received one of these for quite some time. Please know that these are NOT legit. And yes, some teachers have fallen for it: the scammer sends a payment that is too much. The teacher refunds the overage. Then later it’s discovered that the payment wasn’t real. Go figure. I suppose we musicians are just so desperate for income sometimes we forget to be cautious.
