Pampered Chef: Too good to be true??

    I got this weird request, and it came through via my website.
    It was from a lady wanting information. When I followed up via email she said that her consultant had died froms cancer and wanted to place an order with me (though we are thousands of miles apart, and an ocean).
    She wants to order about $300 worth of product and pay via cashier's check or money order. She said she doesn't have a credit card and is hard of hearing so cannot take phone calls.
    Has anyone else gotten anything like this.
    Here is a segment of her response:

    Hello my name is Kelly I will like find some nice product that i will love to order from you .. I will have ordered them from my former pampered chef rep but she is so ill and got cancer and do not sell any more i will love to make you my new Rep . Payment will be made to you via Bank Certified Check or Money order u have clearance of your money before processing the order. so let me know if my mode of payment is accepted, as i do not operate credit card and i am an hearing impaired I would have love to call u back but u can keep texting me or email, i'll also tell my friends about you so that they also can patronize you.

    Yeah, I am pretty sure it is, what is sort of scary is that they contacted me via my PamperedChef.biz website.
    I guess i had better forward this to home office, not sure what they will do, but they should be aware.
    One of the things that triggered it is the really poor grammar.,

    Yes- there's always some weird grammer, word usage, and puctuation.

    Not really sure what you are implying here, that I am being discriminative because of my comment about the poor grammar?

    He's a prankster & just having fun. You didn't offend him. ;)

    I agree, SPAM! I'd ignore them & not even respond.
