This is a scam talent agency that wants to take a, quite large, sum of money for their services. I knew that there would not be much correspondence, if any, but it is nice to be a true wise ass. I was replying to a Craig’s list ad for employment and this was one of the useless replies that came in. I did check online to find that it is indeed a scam. Now I would have looked rather silly if it were a real agency.

Dear Mrs. Hoffman,
I am so happy that you are offering the lead role to me and my family. I am sure you will be very happy to hear about my acceptance<wink></wink>. As you know (being such a talented actor) I have a VERY busy schedule. There is a grand opening of a new transmission shop here in this very big city, where I will play a big transmission gear. After that my agent has landed me a role at a local carnival where I will play Milky Mouse(can’t use Mickey due to copyright issues,) but you can call me and we can discuss when and where to be when shooting begins.
Write me back with directions to the studio and the date. I can read the script when I get there.
Happy President’s day
