Has anyone ever heard of a promotions company called 'The White' based in Manchester? Or had any experience with them?
Today they sent us a myspace message saying they really liked our tracks and wanted to use them to put on a promotions CD to send to "the 2000 most important executives in the record industry"
Then in the next message he revealed...
"So obviously, because we don"t sell the albums we charge a fee."
£500...that's quite a fee!
"we don't ask for it all up front. Just a £100 deposit and then the rest you can pay in installments."
How kind of them.
According to Sean, they have just sent out their 20th CD.
Here's some maths...
20 CD's x 10 Bands per CD x £500 per band =
I also googled their name, and found plenty of people in forums that been approached by them - each one being given a different set of figures or conflicting information about the company.
I don't want to underestimate anybody's intelligence, but I just thought I would make people on here aware, just incase their tempted "to see what happens"
If what he said about releasing 20 CD's is true, then that's 200 bands that have fallen for it.
Don't be next! :)
