Chris Brown

Victim of FAKE Booking Agent

9/27/2011 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown
was targeted by a fake agent who setup and announced a concert date for the singer in Vancouver ... according to Brown's rep.

TMZ has obtained the cease and desist letter Chris' legal team fired off ... accusing a company called EJ Media Group of fraudulently presenting itself as a booking agent in order to organize a November 10 concert in Vancouver.

The concert was announced to the public today ... but Chris quickly tweeted that it was phony.

Brown's rep tells us they were alerted to the fake show when the venue -- the Pacific Coliseum -- contacted them. We're told the venue already wired $25,000 to EJ Media Group to secure the gig.

The cease and desist letter demands, among other things, that EJ Media return the money.

update_bar
EJ Media Group in New York City has contacted TMZ to say it is NOT involved in the Chris Brown concert fraud. A rep for the company points out the cease and desist letter was sent to a Broadway address -- but they're located on Fifth Avenue ... meaning, they're not the ones messing with Chris.

The rep says they are trying to figure out if someone else is illegally using their company name.

Spellcheck Please    

Since when do venues pay agent for shows? Read the ACCURATE story in the Vancouver Sun: "Chronico Music Group, Sky High Media, and JPioroda were victims of fraud involving the representation of Chris Brown" not the Pacific Coliseum!

If EJ Media was fake Pacific Coliseum will never see their money again, especially if everything was done by email, fax, over the telephone or whatever. Do they know what the people from EJ Media look like?

Poor Poor Pitiful and Pathetic Chris Brown.
He is ALWAYS the VICTIM. Sooner or later you have to start taking responsibility for your own actions, Chris.
The sooner you can do that, the better things will go for you.

What a total s***bag. It's a shame that people stood up and applauded this woman beater at the MTV music awards. I guess they feel giving supporting this a-hole is more important than taking a stand to domestic abuse. You'll get yours Brown.

First, I have zero sympathy for Chris Brown, but I do have sympathy for the people who were obviously the victim of a con artist, but not too much. They should have verified who they were talking too before they ever cut a check. They should have verified that the person they were talking to was who they said they were, and that they worked for the agency they said they did, as well as that they actually did represent Chris Brown. When doing business with people you don't know, you should always check them out first.
