WARNING! ...Entertainers Beware! ...Scam Alert!

WARNING!!  ...Entertainers Beware!   ...Scam Alert!  -  Bingley Music Festival
The Billy Jones Band has been SCAMMED out of $1,2000.00 by the Bingley Music Festival.
We want all of our friends and followers to know that this a criminal operation and the people involved with this shameful deceitful scam are low-lifes and crooks.
Please DO NOT fall victim to this internet scam.  ...they are thieves and liars.
I have sent the original contact e-mail that I recieved from them, the MoneyGram receipts and the e-mail communications log with them to my friends at the FBI Internet Crimes Division.
 We were cheated out of $1,200.00 and will continue to post this warning daily until we are refunded the money stolen from us and/or these crooks are arrested.
...here is an e-mail that we received from our entertainment agency in Orlando.
Subject: festival- from Ted Skorman Productions:
I went online re: this festival and I also decided to send your email to the owner, Ted Skorman and he also agrees this is a scam.  Anything like this would not be negotiated and handled only via emails no phone communication and not to mention their English grammar in these emails is horrible.  A lot of these out of country email scams have the same pattern.  My girlfriend who goes on these dating sites has been scammed a few times (thank God no money was exchanged or personal info) but the same thing with the emails. 
Anyway, you have to be careful now with the personal information you provided them. That’s the scary part. You may have to speak to your friends FBI contact and find out how you need to protect yourself.  You have to contact the credit card bureaus of this in case you gave them your ss# .  It’s a scary prospect Billy so cover your butt as best as possible and stop communicating with these people.  Make sure they don’t see our email addresses either ok.
I saw you forwarded the scam link I sent you but make sure you take our emails out. I don’t want them to start sending us crap.  Let me know if I can assist you in any other way.

He is in over his head. Hopefully he didn’t give them personal information. They have a hook into him now and the emails won’t stop. He is not getting his money back and should hope they can’t scam him more with any info they have.

...first of all "violence is the tool of the ignorant".  ...secondly, I would be pleased to meet you one on one, not to fight you, but because you have sent me a $2,000 check, airline reservations and some kind of PROOF that you are NOT scam artists.  ...I have come to think that you are.  ...relieve my mind and show me that you are not.

...I will pursue and prosecute this issue to the fullest extent of the law both here in the United States and the United Kingdom.  ...I will make sure that all of my 90,000 followers and everyone that they know are made aware that the Bingley Music Festival and everyone associated with it are criminals and scam artists.
I shall start by contacting the FBI for advice on how to expose you as the low-life predators that you are. 
Anti-Terrorist Certificate Scam
The European Commission has learned of several attempts to defraud individuals and companies via e-mails from persons promising to invest large sums of money. We understand that intended victims of the fraud are asked to provide an “Anti-Terrorist Certificate” in order to allow international money transfers to be made. The certificate is said to be a legal requirement established by the European Commission. Victims are told that they must pay up to EUR 50,000 in order to receive this certificate, and failure to pay the fee will result in the funds being blocked.
Please be advised that any such demands should be treated as a hoax. The European Commission does not require such an Anti-Terrorist Certificate nor does it request fees in association with the international transfer of funds. There is no “Commission Patriot Act of London, July 2005 (Public Law 313)” nor any similar Act, Law, Regulation or Directive.
Persons who receive a request to pay for a certificate of this nature are strongly advised against making any payment. For issues relating to international money transfers, the first point of contact should be your bank. If you suspect fraud, you should contact the anti-fraud authorities in your country.
For information on the European Commission’s activities to stop the financing of terrorism, please visit the following website: http://ec.europa.eu/justice_home/fsj/crime/laundering/fsj_crime_lau... .

Subject: Good morning Mr Jones, 
Good morning Mr Jones,My name is Barr. Dick Wilson from Bingley music
2015. Am writing you in regards to your last message to Bingley
concerning Mr
Daniel and Mrs Kathrine. Be i informed that Mr Daniel is
one of our recruiting
agent while kathrine is also our visa/work
permit agent.
I want to use this
medium to inform you that you should not be afraid
dealing with Mrs Katharine
regarding your work permit or visa. To my
best of knowledge What Mrs kathrine
told you concerning the signing of
the UK form is correct but you have an
option as well to avoid the
£250 Pounds and the option is by coming down to UK
to personally to
sign the required form.
You are not the only artist
involved in this signing issue,many hired
the same lawyer while others came
personally to sign the form.
I don't want you to be afraid in your dealings
with Mr Daniel and Mrs kathrine.
Have a nice day.
Barr. Dick Wilson

Hi Bingley Music Festival, 
I am writing you to verify that Daniel Ghaayisi and Kathrine Park are official agents of your organization. 
I have been communicating with them about my group performing at your festival and have sent them £400 ($711.46 US dollars) in good faith in order to receive work permits, round-trip airline tickets, $2,000.00 salary and housing & transportation vouchers to perform at your festival, only to be informed that they need another £250 to pay some lawyer that I don't know, and was not previously mentioned, before they will issue the work permits. 
I am strongly suspecting that I have been scammed out of £400 and that Ms. Park and Daniel Ghaayisi have no connection with your festival. 
Needless to say we are let down and very disappointed with what has happened.  ...we were very much excited and looking forward to performing at this great event. 
Please advise me on what I should do about this issue and if these two people are really connected with your festival.  ...we are heart-broken over this situation.  ...please help us. 
Here is a log of the communication between myself and Mr. Ghaayisi and Ms. Park :

Attn: Theophilus,  
You really surprise me with your level of understanding towards this issue. If you ask Daniel he will tell you how long I have been securing work permit on behalf of bingley guest artists.  
There is no way you can sign the form via email or fax because what they need is your original signature or that of your representing lawyer.  
I have done everything I could to contact a lawyer to sign on your behalf because you have just less than 24hrs to append your signature or that of your lawyer.  
The lawyer is asking for £250 only and everything will be fine and done with.  
Sorry I did not inform you about this before now.

I don't know what is going on here.  ...I have been proceeding forward in good faith.  ...I am expecting the $711.00 that I sent you to get me 4 work permits.  ...I don't want to pay anybody else anything else until I receive 4 work permits. 
What are you asking me to do?  ...I don't understand. 
I have performed in Europe before and never even needed work permits, so this is a new process to me. 
Also, when I need to sign contracts, my agency e-mails me the contract, I print it out and sign it, then I scan it and save as a jpeg file and e-mail the signed contract back to them.  ...that's just how it's done now. 
Why can't I sign the work permit like that?  ...I am very stressed out about this issue.  ...I want to perform on the Bingly Music Festival very badly.  ...please assure me that this transaction is legitimate.

I am glad to inform you this morning that everything is going on fine as plan regarding the UK work permit. There is a form(official UK TIER 5 WORK PERMIT FORM) that needs your original signature on it immediately. But am thinking if i  should hire the services of a lawyer here to sign on your behalf since you will not be available to do so. The form requires your original signature or a representing lawyer. 
Should i go ahead and hire a lawyer on your behalf to sign? Please i need your advise immediately. Or can you come over to UK  between today and tomorrow morning? 
Please get back to me immediately its urgent. 
Ms Kathrine 
thanks Daniel.  ...will do right away.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
