I think I'm being scammed.... - Page 7

post #91 of 115
Either way it doesn't really matter. If you employ sound business practices, you're not going to be taken in by a scammer. It's when our "want to" gets in the way of our "should" that we get ourselves into trouble.

What a timely thread - a great replacement for those soaps that have been cancelled. "Cakes of Our Lives". What will happen next? Was this all a tragically misunderstood customer, a scam revealed, a scammer scorned? And who made that cake? Was it delicious? Box mix or scratch?(not to mention when was it made)... And what ever happened to the OP? All we need now is amnesia and a fake pregnancy and we got ourselves a daytime Emmy contender!

More than likely a scam. It sounds like the same one that circulated last year. OR it could be another baker or friend of a baker checking out your prices and products you offer. But be careful, there are all kinds of freak weirdos out there.
If you can't find time it do it right..how will you find time to do it over?

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I believe whomever the Liza is on cake central only joined to FISH for bakers to setup her scam. Or it was possible for the scammer to HACK Liza's unused account.

BTW , Cakes of our lives -hysterical!

Don't forget the evil twin!

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I noticed in the emails from the purported customer there is a lot of bad grammar, or at least weird grammar. That is usually a hallmark of a scammer. Usually b/c they are run by people for whom English is not their first language (e.g., the Nigerian scams). Almost without exception, there is strange syntax, tenses, word usage, etc. Misspellings also, but that alone wont necessarily raise flags. I am an excellent speller, but atrocious typist.

I still say this is a scam. Maybe someone fishing for prices. But with the money order, it was either going to be that scam to get you to refund that money, or the shipping. In the money order scam, the MO is fake but your bank doesn't figure this out for about 2 weeks. By that time, they are long gone with the cash refund from you. If it was the shipping scheme, I think at some point delivery would have been changed to using a company, not in person.

I definitely still think this is a scam. And the more the word gets out about ALL scams, the better.
