One of the behind the scenes benefits of being a net musician is a whole new type of spam: Greetings! I was just browsing through and had to tell you how awesome your music sounds! I don't know how your promotional efforts are going, but I know I can help you get the exposure you need. My name is Michaelantonio, and I am a talent scout who makes people famous. Below is my personal recruiting website, where you can get started on your journey to STARDOM! I look forward to working with you. Michaelantonio

They usually then ask you for fifty bucks to look at your stuff. Then you start thinking that if so many people are trying this scam, it might actually work and maybe you should quit the whole music thing and start trying to scam money out of musicians fifty bucks at a time.
