I know many of you have received these scams as I have SEVERAL so I do know how extremely irritating they are! I know there is really nothing that can be done to stop this insanity but thought I would share the latest with you! It takes the cake! Since it was a bit more detailed than some of the others I have received... I did send it to the home office and this is what I sent...



ATTENTION Home Office...
I Know I have sent one of these before and I know there is probably nothing you can do about this... but I do think it is important for you to see these. I have received many of these and they are SO SO SO annoying! I can't believe people do this! However this one TOPS the cake...

First of all apparently you have a NEW CUSTOMER System? I was Unaware of it however this is what I received...


Great news! A customer has located you through the "Find A Consultant" page, and would like you to contact them.

The following information has been provided:
Name: lynn bob
Email Address: [email protected]
Phone Number:
Note: i want to order from you

Contact your new customer soon and assist them with all their Pampered Chef needs!

All the best,
The Pampered Chef



Naturally I did respond but had a feeling it was one of those scams, just from the name and lack of info...
I did not date NOT to respond in case it did happen to be real (how are you going to know?) Anyway.... I did get a reply back and this is what was stated...

from lynn Bob

This one is much more complex than some of the others... including a phone number. I personally was unsure of calling this number so thought I would put it into your hands...

First one I've heard of using the Oklahoma tornado. Their philosophy must be- more details, more likely people will fall for it.
Thanks for sharing.

I received the same thing last week......I wondered about responding to the initial e-mail, but it had an e-mail address and said they wanted to order.....I responded that I would love to help them, send me your phone # and address and such. Then got a similar 2nd e-mail which I then responded they weren't going to screw me with this scam. They said they didn't have a credit card so I told them to go to Walmart and use their cash to buy a visa card and then order directly online from my website. Never heard from them again.

I got one as well, referencing the Oklahoma tornadoes. Too bad these people can't spend their energies on something useful!

I like that response of go to Walmart and buy a prepaid Visa!

I'm sorry but the grammar/English used is the biggest give away. Even folks in USA who aren't as highly educated and such still don't talk like that.
"Beautify the kitchen" ??

I just got this one. I think if you click on the link it can download a virus.
