This Massage therapy scam is actually quite good…
It probably was sent mostly to male massage therapists. You’ll see in the email below.
Roberto Mecca is likely a fake name. This whole thing is a fake tailored to massage therapists.
If you’ve received a message like this, run away. It is a scam.
You might be tempted by the pictures… do not be. This is a scam to get you to launder money for them, similar to the Ben Raes massage therapist scam.
Here’s the email.
Again, this is a SCAM!
