SMG Global Network is an elaborate "ponzi/pyramid" scheme. They recruit victims with the phrase "want to be paid as a Talent Scout or A&R rep?"
The "pyramid/ponzi" scheme is as follows, To be an A&R Rep or Talent Scout you have to purchase an ID# via PayPal (contacted PayPal they do not care that their service is being used for a scam) in order to be paid a commission. A&R reps sign Talent Scouts who in turn book Show Cases and they both sign New Artists. SMG Global Network pays for each Talent Scout the A&R reps signs, covers cost of "show cases" the Talent Scouts book to recruit Artists and pays both for each new artist that signs. Yes this is to good to be true. So most in the music business do research to make sure this is not a rip off. The beauty of this "scheme" it has bold face lies and a fake company; "distributed by Universal Digital Music Group Distribution or Universal Music Distribution Group", (Universal Music Group Distribution Is The Real Company no affiliation). This fictitious company even has a bogus CEO Paul (Birdsong http://www.linkedin.com/pub/paul-birdsongs/62/4a3/472) and "unverified" press releases:
