We've just been alerted by Amdur Productions that a scammer is on Facebook posing as Amdur management staff, and perhaps other events, accepting payment by PayPal and Venmo. We believe this also applies to some other events.
Our message to you: no reputable art fair is going to take Venmo for payment. If you pay with Venmo and then show up there will be no booth space for you and the event organizer who has never received the payment. If you are not paying through JuriedArtServices.com or Zapplication.org, or through the official event site, you have been scammed!
As they say, "if it seems to too good to be true, it isn't." Sorry, folks, if you're reading this you probably aren't interested in doing an event that has a $60 booth fee.
Please share this information with your artist friends and groups to hopefully save artists from being scammed.
