Since our post yesterday, we have had several RL companies writing in to us and informing of a further scam probably by the same individual that went under the moniker of Thomas Brown this time going under the alias of Michael Jones.
Once again, we would like to state that we are not associated with Michael Jones or Thomas Brown in anyway and if you do receive an email such as the following, please do not respond as it is obviously a scam.
We are a virtual company based in the virtual world Second Life (http://www.secondlife.com) and only the CEO Rusch Raymaker possesses the rights to approach real world companies on behalf of AVENUE Models or AVENUE Inc.
