Default Anyone option a script to iFilm Group UK?

My screenwriter client has been contacted by James Cole/iFilm Group (iFilm Ltd) United Kingdom to option writer's script BUT requiring writer to first obtain 'an independent FR script report' before Mr. Cole could 'escalate...script to our investors...' Client is not convinced this is a disingenuous proposal as I have advised (i.e., requiring the writer to expend his own funds before Mr. Cole even provides an Option Agreement). So, has anyone else been similarly approached by Mr. Cole/iFilm Group UK? If so, what was your experience?

There was a long discussion/thread on this exact same scenario with this exact same company recently in Stage 32. Should tell you all you need to know --

I found the same Stage 32 thread online shortly after submitting my DD post. Thank you.
