He sends an email asking for psychotherapy for his daughter while she is on vacation in the vicinity of therapist's offices and requests personal information in order to pre-pay for the therapy but balks when the therapist asks to speak to the prospective patient.

I have received several emails from this man inquiry i g about therapy for his 19 year old daughter Joanna. I have asked him to have daughter email or call me and she never has. He wanted 2 sessions per week for 4 weeks. Yesterday I received a cashier’s check in the mail. Everything looks legitimate but there is no address on the check. In addition, the check is thousands of dollars above what it is supposed to be and he wants me to deposit the check and then pay him the difference!! I had been suspicious but played along to see if he would send a check. I will be warning my bank about this but wanted to warn otber therapists and counselors.

Hello Teacher, My daughter is looking to learn belly dance in your area. Are you currently taking new students, and if so, I'd love to hear about your dance(s) taught, experience, costs per hour, teaching location, etc. If not, I'd very much appreciate it if you could recommend someone else. I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time. sincerely, Andrew

This was a request for eight sessions of therapy with his 19 year-old daughter Katrina while she is in the country, in my area, from dec. 12, 2017 through January, 2018. I responded twice to him, and he offered to pay my full fee in advance by cheque made out to my name. All three of his emails (the initial, copied below, and the two responses) looked "phishy", the second response even more than the first. When I googled "Andrew Rogers scam", I found quite a few entries confirming my suspicions, including the Scamalot entry and a notice from the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) warning of this scam and advising not to respond. I spoke to BCACC by phone to confirm.

Same as above: contacted me to arrange therapy for his daughter who allegedly would be in the country for four weeks. Wouldn't answer relevant questions such as what seems to be the problem. Kept telling me that his daughter, who in this case was named Katrina, would attend two sessions a week. Wouldn't answer why two sessions.
