    Question Referral fee - ever got one?

    Has anyone on the planet ever received a referral fee from an agent?

    Many years ago I did recommend someone to an agent and he got the gig. I phoned the agency to claim my freebie and they said "He was on our database, so tough luck".

    Ever since I have played dumb and not suggested people out of spite.

    Do you recommend people?

    Have you been paid a referral fee?

    Have been refused a referral fee?

    I have in the past linked up a Mate (or a professional collegue of my aquaintence) and a pimp (or a Pimp) for a Role...

    The Pimp seemed to have a real role on offer (which he contacted me about).
    PCMA was on the bench.....
    I told Pimp I would pass on his details to PCMA and if he was interested PCMA would be in touch.....
    PCMA did get in touch and did get the gig.......
    I never got (nor expected) so much as a Thank You call from the Pimp.
    PCMA owes me a beer...... because we haven't met up since (in many years)

    I would like to think PCMA would do a similar thing for me if the option arose (others have in the past and I am sure will in the future).
    I would fully expect (any) Pimp to act in exactly the same way.....

    I wouldn't even try to get into a Refferal Commison because it is totally reliant on trust..... and I know PCMA will buy me the beer if we ever meet up......

    No fee, but I was sent a case of reasonably good wine from a pimp instead.

    Same with me.

    I also got a three-figure fee on another occasion.

    I got £500 back in 1997.

    At the moment I am cashing a cheque from an agent for £500. I wish to recommend the agent very highly : I will vote for him in the cuk end of year awards.
