I think I'm being scammed.... - Page 5

post #61 of 115
I was just about to say that she is probably other baker. She most likely feels threaten by you and the possibility of you taking costumers from her. There for she was probably wondering how much you would charge, so she could charge less.

I really don't think she is another baker, she sends the same email to multiple bakers, and she is located about 2 1/2 hours from me, so I am not her competition. I don't know what her deal is, but when I googled her she seems to be running some scam with an apartment because she has multiple classified ads under different names with the same phone number.

This is what I would do. Gather up all the information given to you by this forum, print it out, (everything). Then go to your local newspaper or television and ask them to investigate it. I know that my television station is always willing to investigate scams and put it on the news to warn people. At least that is what a reporter is suppose to do, investigate a good story.

I just posted this on the other thread about this scam....
my guess is that the scammer is just using this woman's name. Why would Elizabeth the baker lie about needing a cake but use her own name?

This is a scam plain and simple and should be reported to the authorities.

As I said before, I know that this woman is a con-artist, I just don't understand what she gets out of it though. No one in their right mind would ever make a cake of this magnitude with out having a deposit that cleared weeks ahead of time and then a final payment that also cleared weeks ahead of time. So what could she possibly be hoping to gain by doing this?
post #69 of 115
This is 100% SCAM! Aside from googling her name and number, you can also do a search of her email headers. I will guarantee she is not from wherever she says she is. These scams occur all the time, although this is the first time I have heard of it happening to bakeries! This is a typical 419 scam..they run rampant on sites like ebay and craigslist. They are sometimes the "buyer" and often the "seller". They will do things like sell puppies that dont exist, and rent vaccant appartments that dont even belong to them. When you have some time and need a laugh, check out the site 419eater. Its dedicated to people whoe "bait" scammers like this. There is also a site dedicated to warning people of scams and is also helpful by listing some of the newer scams so people know what to look for that would indicate a scam. That site is scamwarners.
Anyhow, I am so glad you heeded everyone's warnings! Scam Scam Scam!! Walk away!! icon_sad.gif

Elizabeth Kerr contacted me again about a ridiculous order and I replied and sent her this link to let her know we were on to her scam and this was her reply.

"Well I don't own a bakery,and I am not scamming anyone.The reason I didn't go to these people because,the never call me they couldn't do it I am definatly not a scammer.I just paided off a order for my mom's cake and she told me to contact someone about my brother's cake because, the other lady the I order the cake from is going on vacation.I am usually just looking for a price quote befor I place an order for anything."

She is doing something strange.

I agree with Jason. This is one for the DA. Soon enough you will get a legit order for a $1000 cake.

Hi Elizabeth!



Those flavors sound divine. First, I do have that date open. I can definitely create this vision, and would be able to deliver the cake to the location of the party, within your budget. It is also far enough in advance that I can perfect the recipes for the flavors your requested. Are you local, or are located in Middletown? What is the occasion for the cake? I ask for a non-refundable $50 deposit to hold the date for the cake, and then would need payment in full 2 weeks prior to the event. I would be happy to discuss the details over the phone if you would like me to call you. Thank you for contacting me, I hope I can make your vision a reality.



Sincerely,

Amy Cozze

Nice cake! Which bakery made it, and how much did you pay for it?
post #74 of 115
BTW I hear Liza's Home Bakery in Poughkeepsie makes pretty good cakes, they don't seem to have a web site but you may want to contact the owner if you need a cake in the future.
