This Clarinetist Missed Out on a Huge Opportunity Because His Girlfriend Scammed Him

By Aimee Lutkin

Love makes people do crazy things, but if you're a moment away from destroying your partner's chances at their dream to keep them on the couch with you, call a professional to talk to instead. A Canadian man named Eric Abramovitz recently discovered that he had his chances at a prestigious opportunity at a music conservatory, including a full-ride scholarship, tanked by the woman who loved him. 

Or so she claimed.

Buzzfeed reported on the case Abramovitz brought against his former partner Jennifer Lee, when he finally unraveled the web of lies she constructed to keep them together. Spoiler alert: it didn't work. 

Abramovitz had been training most of his life to audition at Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles for his bachelor's degree. The spot was highly competetive, and the audition process was grueling.

Abramovitz received a rejection email from Colburn's clarinet master, Yehuda Gilad, from a gmail account that appeared to be from him. But it had actually been created by Lee, who saw Abramovitz's acceptance letter in his email before he did.
