Posted:I recently was contacted by Vladimir Khrustalev of "MR Performers Agency" (http://www.mrperformersagency.com). The message said "We found you on a web listing of performers and would like to invite you to add your profile to our website," and I'm guessing it is this website in particular.

Anyone else hear from these folks?

Posted:Warning! The person who has been emailing me has used two different email addresses so far, none of them ending with @mrperformersagency.com.

I've sent the following email to the main address on the website to see if this request is legit or if someone is just scamming to get routines they can rip off...

quote: To whom it may concern.

I have been in email contact with someone claiming to be from your organisation who is requesting video tapes of my performances.

Originally it seemed strange to me that they were using an @earthlink address and now their reply is from pacbell.net.

At this point, I am beginning to guess it is someone trying to use your name and site to collect performance videos for some bizarre reason known only to themselves.

Hopefully, I am wrong, in which case, my earlier request of a stamped, self addressed envelope large enough to fit a video tape is my condition for sending promotional material overseas.

I look forward to hearing from you, and finding out my concerns are misplaced.

Have a great day.

Posted:adam, swifty, Charles,

my apology for being late on this matter. i'm still setting up our updated website version, which i'd like to be in place before phoning this agency, since the first thing we'd naturally do is trade online addresses, since they operate so heavily that way.

i will phone them as promised this coming week, i expect, after the site's smooth again.

any news from each of you about MR Performers Agency?

Posted:No reply from either party, the apparent pretender or the legit company.

I really thought they would have replied to an email saying that someone was trying to impersonate them...oh well, I guess they just don't care

After looking at the site, the names the guy who emailed was using are all easily found in their contact details, I'm pretty sure its the same scam as the UAE twit.

Little gimp!

Posted:Yup, got one too.
Nope, there was no reply from any of the addresses I went to (earthlink, pacbell, or the main site addy).
Not that I have a video taped routine to send them, but I was curious to see what their resume had to say, in so much as, who they represent and for what shows.
Swifty, if I were you I would be more leary of sending out my material. Do a little research into those who do submit email requests from you. Trust me, it is worth it in the end.

I think that while Fireperformers.com is a great thing, that I have gotten alot of false offers/crap from it as I have legit offers. *shrug* I suppose it is the price one pays for publicizing in such a way.

As for Dubai, the offer I received from the Emerites did not include Dubai, but it did include an awful lot of rules, restrictions and overall extreme comprimises that I am not willing to take.

I think I will stick with my self-promotion techniques....after all, they have worked so far!

Posted:Pele, ( * grin * )

since UAE & Dubai are quasi-more liberal than many of their neighbors, but must respect their neighbors' sensibilities so they'll come in rich tourist droves (with up to 20 wives at a time like Sheik Yamani when he travels - no, j/k, i saw Sheik Yamani, the former Saudi oil minister and Harvard Business School grad speak live once, and only 3 or 4 of his gorgeous wives sat front row - and that's the truth, all the other HBS males in the audience were sooooo jealous). . .

well, Pele, i think you'd look lovely and move with such grace, spinning poi in a full-body burkha, with one-way gauze for your eyes to see your fireheadz. . . you'll absolutely stun them how you miss flamegrazing your draping robe. . . oh, and a . . . heh heh. . . straw. . . to blow fire without showin your scandalous so-sensual lips, darlin Lynnie

Posted:oooh, Pele, i like that.

No reply from either party, the apparent pretender or the legit company.no reply yet through FireMike either. one last apology for my slowness in phoning them up, then i'll shut up here until i deliver, and that i will do. recognizing i'm in a stage of much catching up these few months rather than weeks, however, i'll spare you a ETA until i land, so my word on dates can firm itself back into meaningful power when i can speak dates on my promises reliably.

with burning love for the burn to share, and ever more than before,
