New Sensations/Digital Sin urges talent to be vigilant of casting scams. New Sensations/Digital Sin will never solicit talent for money and/or personal information/paperwork via email, text, phone, etc. Someone using the name Robert Goldman ([email protected]) is soliciting industry talent, asking for personal information and fees. The email includes bogus release forms with NSDS letterhead and W-9 tax form.
THIS EMAIL IS A FRAUD. YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS.
Below is the body of the fraudulent email:
December 2, 2015
I wanted to personally thank you for your interest in New Sensations. We received your application and you’re exactly what we’re looking for. Besides your obvious good looks, you fall squarely into the category of heterosexual men we are currently in demand of. We would like to officially invite you to audition with New Sensations Video in Glendale, Ca. We feel like you would make a great addition to our organization and hope we can have a long and prosperous working relationship together. And oddly enough we have the same birthday. I was born on September 10th as well, just many years before you.
We’ve built a reputation as being the leader in this industry because of our employees. We think you’ll find that out management and supportive staff are here to be of assistance to you and help make your entrance into the New Sensations Family as seamless as possible.
New Sensations and its subsidiaries follow State and Federal guidelines regarding the production and distribution of pornographic material at all times. Three of the most important laws governing our industry are:
· Federal Statue 18 U.S.C. 2257, which requires producers of sexually explicit material to obtain proof of age for every model they shoot, and retain those records.
· California State Law that requires that all performers are tested for STDs no more than 14 days before intercourse. The test includes screening for HIV, Trichomoniasis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Hepatitis A & B.
· California State Law that requires that no performer be listed as a Sex Offender in any State or Federal jurisdiction.
For these reasons it is necessary that New Sensations Studios have every prospective actor submit to a comprehensive criminal background check and mandatory 7 panel STD check prior to filming. The total cost for this is $97.35 and is reimbursed upon completion of your first scene. Upon completion of the background check we will provide you with round-trip airfare from San Francisco to Los Angeles and complementary accommodations for 4 nights at:
Hilton L.A North – Glendale
100 W Glenoaks Blvd
Glendale, CA 91202
Before traveling to Los Angeles we will schedule and pay for your STD exam at a local testing facility there in San Francisco. This usually takes place 3 to 5 days before your flight here. We currently have your audition listed for January 24th. You would leave San Francisco on the 23rd of January and return on the 28th January. Please make note on your New Hire Application if those dates are not convenient for you. Your compensation for the audition and subsequent video production will be $500 per day. You will have the opportunity to discuss and negotiate a long term contract with our Vice-President upon arrival.
I have attached a copy of the “New Sensations Actor Employment Agreement”, the “New Sensations Actor Release Form” and a “2015 W-9 IRS Tax Form”. Please take a moment to read and become familiar with those items. You DO NOTneed to send those back now. Please bring the documents with you to your audition on January 24th. Once you have familiarized yourself with the attached paperwork please go to https://form.jotform.com/53341991257157 and fill out the New Hire Form. When asked, your employee number is 49340. Please fill out the form completely confirming your reading and understanding of the supplementary paperwork and authorizing us to perform a sexual offender background check. Upon submission of The New Hire Form, please pay the $97 background check and STD Testing Fee. Our secure payment processor accepts all major credit cards and PayPal. Please print and save your receipt for future reimbursement. Once we receive your New Hire Form we will immediately start the New Hire Process and contact you within 2-4 weeks to confirm your audition.
Sammie, from everyone here at New Sensations I would like to personally welcome you to our family. I look forward to meeting you in person upon your arrival. Please return the New Hire Form by December 4th as we are currently coordinating shooting schedules for 2016.
