Music scams are all over the place in today’s world. With some common sense and know how,you can improve your chances of avoiding scams in online submission opportunities.
We’ve all heard of the phrase “too good to be true.” This can be the case when it comes to music licensing opportunities so I thought it would be the perfect time to go over some ways to avoid being the victim of music scams and red flags to watch out for.
Here at Women of Substance, we are committed to helping female musicians. We welcome all submissions of your music for the Women of Substance Podcast or videos for the Women of Substance Video Blog.
To avoid music scams:
- Use the power of the internet to google the company – be able to weed out the good and the bad reviews. Is the company legit?

- Extreme flattery
- Them contacting you
- Free opportunities
Things to consider:
