OK...I'm so confused! But even with all the stuff about scams and such may I ask the OP...with all the exotic ingredients and expense of this cake, why would you only ask a paltry $50 to reserve the date! For that kind of cake (providing it were legit) I'd ask for half up front to reserve and then the rest a month before the event. I guarantee you if you'd asked for $500 in deposit money things would have cleared up rather quickly.
This is a strange thread...but interesting! (Nice post Jason!) hee hee hee.

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I haven't read through all the replies but this is a definite scam. She says she'll send you a check for $200 but it comes through at $2,000. Then she'll urge you to deposit the money and send her the balance. Your good check is on its way to her while hers bounces. Definite scam. Just hang up next time.

Oh this just got so weird....

wow I have no idea what's going on now.

I know someone's already mentioned it but Paypal would be a terrible way to go! Even if you've had good experience with them so far, problems are inevitable when you consider what a horrible reputation paypal has now. Everyone thinks "oh it will never happen to me". Next thing you know, your customer files a non-delivery and paypal refunds the money. Easiest way to scam someone is to pay them with paypal and reverse charges.

I am so lost.... So it wasn't a scam, or was it? Was the cake made by the CCer? What is going on?
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

The customer who contacted the OP also contacted another baker in the area with a similar order, that baker referred her to this thread, and the customer responded.

The customer has been a member of CC for almost two years but this is her first post, and the customer (or someone with the same name who lives in the same city) owns a bakery.

It sounds fishy but there is a chance that this was all just a difficult-to-work-with customer instead of a scam.

i would've bet it was a scam too...compared to some of the other emails us bakers have seen it definitely matched up. so, if the person ordering this knew all this information that we knew she might see it the same way...but i can see now she may have just been well informed!

OH! who knows! people can type anything they want on the internet!!! icon_wink.gif LOL

Considering this was Liza's ONLY post, she's been a member since 3/17/10 and she has NO photos, I would tend to think that not only is it a scam, but she's part of it. JMO

I still say it's a scam. They probably just didn't want to be labeled as a scammer so they could keep running it- gotta cover those tracks! That picture was either taken with a really bad camera phone, or it's a really old picture. Just my thoughts. In those emails was a date ever given for when the cake was needed? I read through it, but maybe I missed that.

That was my first thought when I saw the post. I also noticed that there are no pictures on that person's profile. My opinion is that she is member so she can keep track of the forums & such.
