Default Is this for real?

Sent a query to Circle of Confusion Productions
and this is what I got in response:

We are currently accepting all submissions through our website www.pitchnehst.com.

What do you all think?

I find that (the affiliation and the $10 charge) very hard to believe. But there it is. I'd e-mail CC back and ask, "What's up with that?"

Did you send this to the generic email box as opposed to someone directly?

Looks like a gremlin got into your browser. This is the query page on their website: http://www.circleofconfusion.com/queries.html. An email address comes up when you click on "queries". I'm actually working with them now on a project, and that other page you received is really very out of character.

Okay, thanks.

I didn't respond and I'm certainly not going to pay anything.
The email address sent to me (queries@circleofconfusion.com)
was obviously bogus and for lack of a better phrase, a bait and switch.

Glad to hear the real Circle of Confusion had nothing to do with this.

But that is the email -- it's not bogus. That's the one you click on the webpage.... so I'm confused.

You sent a query to that email and got back a website to go too... did it come back immediately?

Actually, I got the email a couple of days after I sent the query.
And I got their email address from the Circle of Confusion website.

The 'From' salutation on their email to me reads: Customer Info... which struck me as
strange since usually it's either the production company or someone's
name.

I, too, am confused.

okay... i have a couple emails in my inbox that came from 3rd party marketing people very soon after i queried 65 managers/agents... i'm wondering if some of these folks are starting little side businesses, ie: selling our email addresses. the ones i got were for query letter help and pitching. well... needless to say, i rewrote me pitch and query letter after getting these... lol
best, LA
