Photography scams are not uncommon. New ones seem to be appearing regularly, and old ones just never seem to die off. Usually, they’re in the form of an email or a text message. They offer to overpay you, then request that you pass along payment to some other vendor. You do so, their cheque bounces, and you’re out a bunch of money.
Valley News reports that this alleged scam being put forward by North Dakota bride, Priscilla Kramer is a little different. For a start it targets the client, not the photographer. Kramer claims that a website service by the name of WedReel took both her money and her wedding photos. Now she has little to show from her happy day.
