Emory paid $37K to bogus bookers claiming to represent Migos

Emory’s Student Programming Council paid $37,500 to a fraudulent group that claimed to represent Migos, an Emory Wheel article says.

The student newspaper obtained financial documents from Emory’s student government. Those documents showed a $37,500 payment to Global Talent Agency, a group that contacted the programming council claiming to be Migos’ booking agency. Migos’ actual booking contact is listed in their Twitter bio. 

An Emory spokesperson confirmed to the AJC that the school paid $37,500 to Global Talent Agency.
