This is the story of Bob.
For over a month and a half, Bob had been desperately seeking to sublet his apartment so that he wouldn’t have to pay the rent while away recording his new album. He wasn’t really getting anywhere, until one day he received an email from a nice british man, his name was Josh, who was ready to take the room! Bob was happy but wary of the possibility that this could all be a ruse! Josh then told Bob that his mother had now died, and even called Bob only to burst into tears and hang up! Bob sympathized for Josh and when he finally received the cheque for the deposit it seemed all was working out perfectly!
While at the bank, Bob insisted the tellers cheque the validity of the cheques, better safe than sorry as they say! But as the confirmation came in, it became clear: it was a fraud. This nice british man wasn’t so nice after all, he was trying to get Bob to deposit a cheques with a lot more than was due to him, only to be asked to transfer the money back to a third party.
Phew! It’s a good thing those guys at bank are so clever! Bob would have lost 2500$!
As you may have guessed at this point, Bob was me. I admit that I feel silly to not have figured it out earlier, but though I had suspicions that it was a ruse, I fell for their trap. It is unfortunate that there are such people in the world so dishonest as to do such things. And though I was fortunate to figure it out before it was too late, not everybody can be so lucky.
Be careful people!
On a totally different note, I will be leaving for Toronto on May 8th to begin recording my next record. I will be working with Producer Ben Pelchat over the next two months, and we will be posting tons of studio video blogs, as well as try out a possible new live streaming feature. So keep an eye out for some sneak peeks of the new songs all along the way!
To this, I leave you to ”The Edge”, one of the 6 songs we performed at the Live Lounge on April 15th. You can find the entire show on my youtube channel!
Music. Live. Forever.
