This is a topic that is gaining a lot of attention lately, especially within the last year.
I, too have found myself staring hesitantly at some questionable offers sent my way.
Here are 3 clues to identifying scam offers:
Does the audition script seem poorly edited or written by bots?
Is the publisher website a broken link or nonexistent?
Do they say they work with a publisher but that publisher has never heard of them?
If you're ever unsure, ask your peers! Building a network of trusted colleagues makes a world of difference.
