Direct Messages between another Twitter User who interacted with @proMusicRoyal:

@PKDDL: Hey, I have a question about @proMusicRoyal, did you work with her on some promo type stuff? PK20

@2ko_ _ _ _ _ _ _: No I was but we had some words n that was that. Why whats up?

@PKDDL: I was trying 2 c if she was legit right, then the she flipped...lol. Texting threats, lol kiddie s***. Finna destroy her hustle tho. PK20

@2ko_ _ _ _ _ _ _: Thats exactly what happened with me! The exact same thing. She got mad cause I wanted her to send me some psper work.

@PKDDL: …but just c'in what wuz up dats all, Now I know she just crazy a** scam. PK20

@2ko_ _ _ _ _ _ _: Yea she a scam. She was thirsty for $$$...wont get me...then she said she will make sure I perform no where or get record deal. Lmfao



PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT TO SHARE YOU EXPERIENCE WITH HER OR OF ANYONE SIMILAR. WE MUST WARN THE INDIES ABOUT THIS AND SHUT HER DOWN. WE CAN WORK TOGETHER...PASS THE WORD...OR BLOG. HAVE A PROSPEROUS YEAR!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!
PK20

So someone thinks I am fabricating the situation when all you have to do is google @promusicroyal and see the responses she receives. You do not harass people or blow up their phone so you can give them a service. Let the clients make the decision to go farther. Present contractual agreements, but of course this would only make her mad. Contact the people who have experienced the same thing with her. And for the record my identity isn't hidden so why would the people commenting hide theirs. My music is searchable for you to judge yourself, and I do not need the validation of someone terribly disrespectful. I took the liberty to post the pictures of the text for proof-sakes and my phone call log showing no calling attempts between either party, only texting and twitter.

I had the same exact experience with this chick. Something is wrong with her for sure. It reminded me of an experience I had with that guy Elevated Scott. Both are very unprofessional and get very angry when you request more info on their "reputable" businesses. It's sad but at least there are people who are willing to exposed these scammers. Smh

Thanks for the post, yeah she goes too far and needs to be stopped.
