I've been getting these scam emails for a long time and they are specifically targeted at private music teachers. Here's an example: "Hello, I am Ann Sandra,I came across your advert that you are a Private Lesson Music teacher, i will like my children to join your private class.Kindly let me know more information about you and your past teaching experience. I have 2 children Mabel & Scott of 12 & 15 years old,just want to know if they can join your private class. I will want you to let me know if you can teach teens beginner,because as a beginner they are also just interested in learning the basics.Also i will want to know your lesson charges per hour, because i want 16 hours for them to study this course with you,consist one hour lesson a day, twice in a week for 8 weeks. Please let me hear from you so that well make an arrangement on when to begin lessons. Regards. ANN" I stupidly responded to the first one a few years ago and they scam you by asking for your bank number so they can transfer their money into your account for the lessons. The person also wanted to send me money so I can pay for their daughter's flight tickets. Don't worry I ran away after they asked about bank transfers lol I just think its really unusual because they are targeted at us.
