"the only reason we take risks is because we are looking at the "potential" of the opportunity"

Not me... I do it cause I don't have a real job ;)

Seriously, I do it looking to gain experience, network, and hopefully get a cushy job like Charles Pappert! I just really enjoy doing video, and would do it for free. Unfortunately, free don't pay bills, but the work is plentiful at that rate...

Greg. www.crozierhenderson.com posted a crew call for shooters in the Atlanta area. They were featuring some real estate or buildings there. They were real particular about their look which is very professional.

That's exactly why I wouldn't go anywhere near this either. I don't see why they would need details of your camera, microphone, tripod, computer system etc. If I was starting a business like this I think I'd prefer to see a sample video from the people I was recruiting.

And regarding the comments about this looking genuine and professional - the most successful scams often do. There are people here in the UK (and no doubt elsewhere) that have gone to enormous efforts to fake online banking web sites down to the very last detail, and many people have fallen for it. That's not to say that this is a scam of course, just that you can't draw any reliable conclusions from presentation alone.

Any new info? Still afraid to dive into this one. Anyone actually heard back, been called out to a shoot?

Is there an email for this lady? I can't find one on the site (yourgoldenopportunity.net). I'd like to ask her quesions along the lines of "why do you need my home address?" and "why do you need to know the exact gear I use?" (though I SORT OF see the logic in the latter).

She mentions in her email that Doug posted above that they're 'rolling out' in Dec which is still a month + away. So, I'd say unless you're asking questions of her that there hasn't been any information yet. Josh, if you want her email address I'll email it to you.

It may sound kind of plausible on the face of it but I don't see any real logic in it. There is no mention of minimum system requirements on the site, and I'm sure we all appreciate that having high-end gear is no guarantee of quality results. Why they want to know what conputer system you have is even more of a mystery.

Wanting detailed technical and personal info, site crashing by simply trying to provide the requested info, low pay. Are there any other red flags needed? If that's state of the art as they claim....?

I was contacted by Skye yesterday via email and received a call from her this AM. She's susposedly got a job for me with a local auto dealer. The dealer is a very well know and I'm supposed to film a 2-3 min. infomercial for them. As far as I know, they're to know exactly what they want and all I'll have to do is show up and shoot 2-3 different shots, do a rough edit and slap on a title and ending contact title.

Skye told me they've decided to broaden their video market. That's why this job is with an auto dealer. The pay is the standard $100 but I figure if it only takes me an hour then that's not too bad.

BTW, their new website is www.golookinside.com if you're interested. Nothings live yet execpt the "Order Now" link. It just seems like they're pushing things faster than the marketing is able to keep up with.

It's not all set in stone yet but it seems to me a lot of trouble for it to be a scam. I'll keep everyone posted.
