Sounds fishy to me!
I rite to ewe because I am a army general in a Nigerian prison. I have $1.14 million in Pampered Chef products I need to order to bribe the guards so I can deposit moeny in your Amerikan bank. All I need is your credit card number.
It is definitely a scam. These are going on through out a lot of DSA companies. The scammers are scraping info off of the site and then building the e-mail. Seriously, who needs 2 Executive Stock Pots. Just delete the message and move on. If you respond you simply flag your e-mail account as active and become the target for more aggressive scams and exploits.
I got the exact same email...I deleted it...only thing that's irritating me about this stuff is it takes away from my "leads". :(
"Seriously, who needs 2 Executive Stock Pots. "
I agree, it's definitely a scam - ignore it. However, I need 2 Executive Stock Pots!!:) Crazy, I know (and due to the cost, I doubt I'll ever get my 2nd)! I was making a vat of spaghetti sauce the other day and seriously did think "I could use another one of these". And when we make different soups... I love to make large amounts and freeze it.
The kind of Pampered Chef stock I'd like is paper and says "Shares" on it. Then I'd be a partner of Uncle Warren instead of working for him.If I'm dreaming of Pampered Chef stock, I must be on pot. Is it possible to smoke stock pot?
Last week I got a PC contact e-mail and it had no phone #....all it said was I want to place an order...contact me. So I e-mailed them because it looked legitimate. Then I get the bogus e-mail from above wanting to buy several pans and in a hurry and no credit card.....I responded to take their cash and go buy a visa card at the store and place their order. I said I figured they were scammers and they weren't going to screw me! Haven't heard from them since.

I received the exact same email. I wonder if the home office could do some investigation and determine if it is an individual taking the time to contact each consultant or if it is some type of computer generated scam. If they identify the source maybe something could be done to block them??

Good luck with that. It's probably some guy named Boris in Youcantgetmestan.

I got the same email about the pastor and tornado.....I forwarded it to the appropriate email address: [email protected]This is what we are suppose to do to help crack this down......I think these people think we are not educated people. If you take the time to read these emails without any distractions and think about what they are asking for....holy cow!
